Through the eye of the wholehearted

Wholehearted folk have an inspiring way of seeing the world. Perhaps it is because they understand how to live with vulnerability, it is what they see and touch. A treasure they behold! To believe they are worthy of deep love and connection. Living with a vulnerability that isn’t controlling or predicting. What would happen if you began to move through the world as a ‘wholehearted’? What gems would you behold? 1 :: Courage To tell the story of whom you are with a wholeheart; having and owning the courage to be imperfect. 2 :: Compassion To be kind to the self above all and upon first account; thus allowing this treasure to be extended to others. 3 :: Connection As a result of authenticity; not being whom you think you ought to be. 4 :: Vulnerability Knowing that what makes you vulnerable is in-fact what makes you beautiful. Knowing that it is necessary to invest within things that may or may not work out. An essential part of the wholeheartedness toolkit is infact vulnerability. Vulnerability is …

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. Moon …

The beauty within anxiety

Via Daily Post : Solitude 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 women, Our highest power is love, and it is one thing each of us has unlimited volumes of at any season. Love is appreciating, complimenting, feeling gratitude and speaking good words to others. The more we give, the more we receive: mind, body and soul. For those dear ones who struggle with anxiety attack remember … I promise myself “ To be strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true. To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect nothing but the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own. To forget …

The graceful moments of taking notice

Weekly Photo reflection Post: Graceful 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. We all tend to go through rough patches in life, yet regardless of what is going on in our psychological environment, mother earth can help us to attune to our external environment to a higher more positive frequency. The pretty agility and grace of our surroundings allow us to poise in that moment and appreciate the power of now. There is always a stillness and peace to be found, spaces where you can gain clarity, inspiration and confidence in the day. The new economics foundation  commissioned by the UK Government’s Foresight project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing developed a set of evidence-based actions to improve personal wellbeing. In this report, NEF presented  the evidence and rationale between five well-being actions, drawing on a wealth of psychological and economic literature. Where ‘taking notice’ was recognised as one of the five priorities. Studies have shown that being aware of …

A recognition that bleeds into everything

Via Daily prompt : Recognize 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 Strength – Recognize that today you will learn more about yourself, you will grow when in pain, you will change your perspective and you will get up and put on the cloak of fight. You will respect yourself, your boundaries and you will take heed to instinct as the universal nod to what is wrong and right. Don’t you dare ignore its energetic might. Be grateful, graceful and honourable to your four walls, speak with simple honesty and humility yet do put up a persistent personal fight. Leave when the time and signals are right. Endure, succeed and have tenacity to give it all your love and might. In the face of adversity rein in on the foundations of endurance not forgetting you can not change another’s voice when in height of fight. Be in awe of your courage to speak what you find uncomfortable …

Simplify

THE FORMULA FOR SIMPLE LIVING Live beneath your means Return everything you borrow Stop blaming other people Admit it when you make a mistake Give clothes not worn to charity Do something nice and try not to get caught Listen more, talk less Every day take a 30 min walk Strive for excellence, not perfection Be on time, don’t make excuses Don’t argue, get organised Be kind to unkind people Let someone cut ahead of you in line Take time to be alone Cultivate good manners Be humble Realise and accept that life is not fair Know when to keep your mouth shut Go an entire day without criticising anyone Learn from the past, plan for the future Live in the present Don’t sweat the small stuff Its all small stuff. ~Source : Unknown~

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 …

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 …
