A womans relationship with the moon

“Woman is the moon. It wanes and waxes. Everything grows because of the moon. Everything ripens because of the sun. And everything is conceived because of the combination of the harmony and those two polarities of male and female, sun and moon.” – Yogi Bhajan LEARNING WAYS WE CAN LINE UP WITH THE INTERNAL RHYTHMS OF LUNAR POWERS Understanding your moon centres and mapping them can help make sense of a woman’s changing emotions. Through careful observation.  Take a calendar and mark down where you think you might be and observe any changes.  Over time, you’ll understand more about yourself and your nature and be able to navigate your changes with more ease.   THE MOON POINTS The moon is the ’emotional flow of energy, hormones and imagination”. The energy of the moon is interactive within the micro and macro cosmos, our body and universe. We recognise how lunar cycles interact with Mother Earth, ocean tides, plant and hair growth, animal rhythms, and a womans hormonal cycle. Lunar energies also influence our emotional equilibrium.

Shoehorning into Lycra

Via Dail prompt: A space to Sound out about the muses of a grumpy fitness sort. Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life.  Hurrah I opened an Instagram feed to be reminded that there are perfect examples of ‘good’ lycra in the world. To women whom have connected with the right before and after. ~Quote~ ‘One year since I stood crying in my bedroom, unable to force myself to go to the gym one more singular time’ For me this is a big part of my life, my work, my business and my responsible voice as a trainer and teacher within the fitness boom. Social media for the fitness and wellbeing blogging culture has become nothing but wading through a series of before and after images and I can’t but blame my sector and some trainers for that. I am becoming utter wrangled with a visual feed crammed high with toxic before and afters of semi clad cleavage laced …

Healing

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. ‘Never hate the wrong man. Thank him, because if it weren’t for him, we wouldn’t have realized it was time for a change. He highlighted what we needed to fix inside ourselves. Because of him, we realized that we are only responsible for our own issues and happiness. Through him, we learned that it’s okay to be a little selfish. We must thank the wrong man, because thanks to him we will be ready to meet the right one.’ -Elyane Youssef. Sometimes it just happens naturally, other times it is forced yet I have spent the last month if not years decluttering; moving from one space to another both emotionally and physically. Secretly I weep for my boys growing up as men in a world that is rapidly loosing its embodied male identity. I feel a fiery role within to gift and create a profound experience to these three young men to create depth, …

Let the pain run through you {4}

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Be inspired by every new moon. Beauty is in the ordinary, in today, in your freedom, in your passions, in your friendships and in your self love. Feel just a little bit happy that it is at your fingertips. Pour and put behind you, dizzy memories that make you cry, be done; they are freckles, winged friends. Feel motivated that you have your eyes on today, it is a high freedom of a dizzy state of potential and excitement, of health. No need for complicated, I have spent the past week with my reading musings. Relaxation, exploration and embracing of forgiveness. Mindfulness, simplification, putting my eyes only to what makes me fly and just that little bit happy. Healing memories of old, decluttering to dizzy freedom. Who says its hard, who says you are quite not enough, it is only as you see it and hear it, the unhappy noise and …

Because you are already there {2}

Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. The body palace I remember the first thought of I hate my body; quite frankly I was far too young. I had come to the conclusion that I wasn’t attached to it, that my skin was some kind of alien. Giving it zero respect, compassion or love with my words or actions. Terrible isn’t it that I can’t even give my own living breathing vessel respect. Being inspired by word; ‘When you learn how to create a boundary to something or someone that you find difficult or unaligned with, new possibilities of opening and connection emerge in you – possibilities which were previously being blocked. This is something I have learnt first-hand in my life and I love working with others on boundaries because I know the richness it brings.’ ~ Lee Harris What exactly is it here that I give my energy to when it comes to body confidence? …

Trust your eyes to give you the real picture

Irritation, why? The fact is we don’t trust our eyes enough to give us the real picture with what we sit within. The postcard that gives a proper picture of reality. Dogged by feelings of guilt for the need we have to make friends with our life, integrity, humility and honesty to situation. Unite not divide, a little tiny move or adjustment may encourage a reaction that brings a smiley face. It may take a little working out, discovery of a problem followed by control of self outrage. Yet you can not cut and paste the responsibility and ownership for your own personal life choices and suffering. The demise of our dear health is brought about by not chasing a calmed down one. Dire blackout phases of unplugging a connection with our inner intuition and voice, a phobia to finding courage to strike out for oneselfs’ health and wellbeing. Quite often we witness those who have a health demise initiated from a demand and importance to always be right and the winner. Yet it is …

The beauty of connectedness

Via Daily Prompts: Refresh & Clean Georgina, is the founder of A fat lot of good. She lives with her three children. Each week, she writes about the sense—and nonsense—of life. Dear you, It starts simply with you. Protect your sensitivity dear one, refrain from confiding your deepest and purest feelings to those that won’t cherish them dear. Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have. Stop engaging in destructive dances, be healthy and assertive and find your emotional freedom. Help others excel within your being for it is those whom are grateful for all the loving and kindness you have in your life and to be grateful for. Have a relationship with vulnerability not one based upon contracts of kisses and possessions. Walk with grace, accept a defeat, build your plans on today alone, for there is gratitude in every day and breath. Thrive, water and grew. Don’t listen to the patter and path of future stories invented by the inner voice. Park sources of exhaustion, look for your own emotional freedoms and …
