Full Moon in Capricorn

Full Moon in Capricorn arrives on 25th June 2021 at exactly 4:39am (AEST). Capricorn is represented by the sea goat; they are confident, step up and lead and they play it super cool (think Michelle Obama). On the flip side of Capricorn energy, they are fussy, can be irritable, and find it hard to adapt to change.

Following on from my Winter Solstice post, I have challenged you all to starve the things that you have become comfortable with. The Full Moon in Capricorn will help you see the areas of your life in which you don’t want to change because you’ve become accustom to the luxury.

This week, observe the things that you become frustrated by. Is it threatening your comfort zone? Where in your life could you step up and lead? What areas do you want more confidence? Use the Capricorn energy to apply these qualities and reveal the blind spot that you have.

The full moon illuminates the sky, shining a light in the dark. The full moon pulls the ocean. And so, just like that, our own emotional (water) darkness will be highlighted this week. Prepare yourself, play it cool, apply humility and observe what shows up on your path this week to test you.

Journal to help you reveal your hidden beliefs, attitudes. Step up and be confident in the process. You don’t have to have it all together, but being aware of the energy this week may help you face it with less attachment.

Register for my free Masterclass tomorrow/Tuesday 22 June 7.30pm, as I will teach you a releasing ritual. Click Here to sign up today.

It’s the perfect time to purge and release these old habits. Don’t be afraid of the parts that you hide, they are your biggest gifts.

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice in the southern hemisphere (Australia, New Zealand, South America, Southern Africa) arrives on Monday 21 June at 1.32pm (AEST). The planet’s southern pole is at its maximum tilt away from the sun, making it the shortest day and longest night of the year.

It is marked by festivals and rituals in many cultures, celebrating the death and rebirth of the Sun. We celebrate longer days as we move towards Spring, although we have some time to ride out the winter months. We can use these months to reflect, rejuvenate and replenish, in preparation for the blooming season.

In this time, many cultures would slaughter their stock, before they starve, and would make plenty of beer. This was the one time of the year they were plentiful in red meat.

They would bring gifts in honour of the Sun God and look forward to the warmer months that were coming.

The Sun represents our personality, the “I am”, our ego, or our solar plexus chakra (Manipura). How can we celebrate the death and rebirth of our ego?

You could use the winter solstice as a ritual to shed (or starve) your ego of any indulgences, or comforts. What are you telling yourself you need or want. What part of your life do you strongly identify with? Where are you so comfortable that it makes you irritable if it would be taken away. This is the time to bring awareness to your attachments.

When you think about it, you want to feel lighter as you emerge into Spring. Mental and emotional lightness is the key, so that when Spring arrives you have the energy to birth your ideas and projects into the world.

Use these winter months to shed, detach from the comforts and focus on living simply, buying vegetables that are in season; making soups and uncomplicated casseroles, that are nourishing, yet simple.

When you begin to change your behaviours and let go of what you think you need in order to be ‘successful’, ‘loved’, ‘accepted’, it will be easier to adapt to natures extremes. It also stretches your capacity to see things with a wider lens or alternative perspective.

Try this Winter Solstice Ritual at home:

  • Sage your house and ask for lightness and ease in the letting go process
  • Reflect on the areas that are challenging for you: Are you still single and want to find true love, Do you want great success in your career, do you want to find your tribe.
  • Can you sit with yourself and find this love, success and belonging within yourself? Do you HAVE to be doing, achieving or saying something important to be accepted in your community?
  • What thought could you release that would help you accept yourself more?
  • Why do you NEED that? Why do you NEED him/her?
  • Spray rose mist in the room, or apply rose oil to your wrists to invoke love and be kind to yourself in this process.
  • Access your wisdom deep inside and listen carefully to the quiet voice within.
  • Now write down what lights you up. What brings you joy? What makes you smile? With or without anyone, go and do those things. Plan them out and make them happen for yourself. And begin to watch the path unfold as you become magnetic.
  • Keep the list of joy and smiles on your altar and light a candle every day and commit to bring more happiness/sunshine to your day by doing more of these things.

Make every moment magic.

The Power in Rest

I have a confession to make. I’ve been a bad witch.

On Monday I overworked myself, and did all the bad things: I went to bed after midnight, looked at the screen for 18 hours and convinced myself it was because I was in the flow. I pushed through Tuesday, after getting less than 6 hours sleep and not eating properly that day. I went to bed with a headache and I woke up feeling like I fried my brain. It felt like I’d been run over by a freight train. Ouch!

After taking a long shower, visualising the water washing away the tension in my head, I decided to give up the day to rest. (Fu*k. I really didn’t have time for that. I have a big to do list: schedule social media posts, prepare for the week of full moon events, invite women to my free online masterclass and share my mentorship program launch starting July).

I know this voice well and I can tell this is all fear based stress. So I gave it some space to be heard. I asked myself:

“What is it that you are afraid of if we rest today?”

“What do we really need to get done today?”

“Is there something that you are unsure about”

“Do you not trust that we are a magnetic force of feminine nature, with manifesting powers?”

And finally I told myself: “You create life darling, the feminine will not be rushed. You will take today to rest and see what unfolds.”

I took myself on a self-regulating retreat. It looked a little something like this:

A glass of celery juice;

A smoothie with digestive enzym goodness and protein;

A cup of medicinal cacao;

A walk to allow my thoughts to run wild;

Naked sunbathing at the Tea Tree Lake;

A nudie swim in the healing waters;

Journalling my ideas down on paper;

Home for a hot bath with lavender oil;

Comfortable track pants, a warm jumper and laying in bed;

A hug from my close friends and houseloves;

Home-made vegetable soup;

Fresh sheets and an early night.

But here is my confession… as I got to the tea tree lake, my soul was delighted to dive into the healing waters… but the scaredy cat voice in my head held me back.

“But you can’t see what’s in the depths of the lake!”

My soul responded “It will be so refreshing.”

“Ahhh ummm I’m not sure, it could have leaches in there.”

“Come on mind, I know you don’t like to get uncomfortable. But we need to do this.”

“eeeehhhhh I really think you’ll be fine if you stay on the grass.”

“Come on, I’m not going to think about this. I’m just going to jump.”

I laughed a little and thought how funny this would look if someone was watching this. This naked woman hesitating in the shallows of the lake.

“Ok.” my soul negotiated “We will jump in and swim straight back to the bank.”

I began to lift myself up out of the mind, out of the thinking, and took a deep breath. I dove in.

I immersed my head under the healing waters and refreshed my entire body.

“Haaaaaaa that feels so good!” I played in the lake for a few minutes and came back to bath in the sun.

The fresh water dripping from my hair onto my lower back felt liberating. Wild and free. I’ve always got time for this, I thought. What was i so worried about.

On the banks of the lake I made a commitment to myself. To balance both the action and the rest in my day. Both need to be a familiar feeling in my body and mind, so I can jump straight into the lake, without a battle.

I must regularly do things that challenge my mind, otherwise it will control my heart, and I will loose the ability to fill up my cup with Love.

The power in the rest, means I feel peace, I trust, and I am confident in the magic I have as a woman.

Autumn Equinox

We are celebrating the Autumn Equinox today in the Southern Hemisphere as it arrives at 8.37pm (AEST). This is a beautiful time to realise what you have been struggling with. Emotions? Conversations? Relationships? What are the themes? Are you feeling lost, confused, or back in the same ol’ place?

Take some time today to write it all down. Then burn it! Come back to your heart, and feel empowered in how you engage. Be wise. Write down the patterns you see yourself do and ask for the magic of this potent time to release these patterns for good.

JOURNAL QUESTIONS TO SUPPORT YOU

RELEASE
Why am I feeling this way?
What is causing these feelings?
How can I detach my emotions from the behaviour of others
What distractions get in the way of being my most productive?

MANIFEST
When do I feel most in tune with myself?
Who is in my support group that I trust?
What do I see myself doing that lights me up?
What keeps me sane?

Subtract the why

When you receive a feeling or sensation in the body, can you express that, in that moment, and not after? Or do you tend to question why you’re having that feeling? There must be a reason, right!? And is it right?

What if you subtracted the question ‘why’ and allowed your body to express the feeling through sound and movement?

Did you know that 93% of communication is non-verbal?

93%! Whaaaa??!!! I know!

Stop explaining why, and just express it baby!

No more will we suppress this essential non-verbal communication, no more questioning! Stop asking “Why doesn’t he know how I’m feeling?” “Why can’t they see what I need?”, “Is this feeling of fear from my childhood?” “Is it an abandonment pattern of mine?”

What if you fu*ked off the questions, and just allowed the sensation to be felt and expressed? Don’t ask why. Don’t hesitate. Don’t doubt yourself.

Just for a little while. Practice this for one day.Maybe for 21 days. Could you give yourself permission?

I just got off a call with David Deida and he said to me “If you wait for the mind to be clear, you would be waiting eons. Just go straight into the responsiveness of your body.”

Be in the moment. How you feel in THAT moment. And then the next. And then the next.

Isn’t this the practice? Isn’t that what we’ve been practice Yoga and Meditation? To be present.

For the feminine, our gift is to be present with the energy that flows through us AND how it wants to be expressed. Sharing this gift with our intimate partner(s).

You want more depth? More love? More attention/presence? Then give this gift, in the moment.

Let go of the why, and trust your body’s intelligence, it’s wisdom. And sound it, move it, let it be as it is!!

Vulnerability at it’s best!

If you need a list of emotions to familiarise yourself with, click here for Professor Plutchik’s: The Wheel Of Emotions. Read through each one and connect with how they would feel in your body. And practice expressing that emotion. Practice it as an expression and not an accusation, as teachers Lisa Page and Nina Lombardo would say.

From there, try the practice of responding to the moment. How you can non-verbally communicate the way you feel when you move your hips, your shoulders, expressing the way it feels when you tickle your arm, responding to the way it feels when you put coconut oil on your skin, what it’s like to light a candle, putting fresh flowers in a vase. You could also practice what it’s like to express the feeling of being cold when you step outside, when you’re exhausted, when you’re on hold with telstra, the list goes on. Express these feelings as expression and not accusation.

What is like when you subtract the why!?

Manifestation is a crock of sh*t

Manifestation is a crock of shit, unless you’re in action.

No matter how pretty it looks on your vision board, there must be small steps made every day to bring it into life.

No matter how many times you read it in your journal, you must use the resources you have to make it reality.

No matter how much you talk about it, there must be no expectation so that you see the possibilities.

No matter how hard you Meditate on it, you must be present in your moment to moment interactions to seize the opportunities.

If you’re serious about it, be in action!

Keep moving forward

Keep moving forward, so you don’t get stuck.

Keep moving and see what rises to the surface.

Keep moving and love yourself. You are brave enough to look at what shows up.

Keep moving until it transforms again and again. Until you feel purified from the sweat, the sound, the beat, the breath.

Keep moving until you return to your human, and you are Spirit moving in human form.

Keep moving until you feel the peace, the connection, the unity.

2020 Vision: To Create

I’m not a victim of my circumstances. I create my reality, every step of the way. I have chosen and choose, what today and tomorrow looks like.

The way I think, speak and act is within my control, it is within my power. I get to choose how I do this.

The word that has come up often in the last few days is CREATE. I am a creator, I am creative.

I get to create my reality, my intimate relationships, my work, my friendships. By staying present and connected to the deepest part of myself, I will always create the most unbelievable moments. Unbelievable, because I have allowed them to be born into this moment without expectation, without thinking about them, without limitations, without boxing myself in to other people’s ideals.

I allow myself to create a reality I didn’t even know was possible, until it flowed through me.

By trusting deeply in what feels true and real for me, I will always be creative. Allowing things to bend and move, that shapes a reality so spontaneous and interesting, it’s an art piece.

Hello 2020!

Good questions to ask yourself before the year ends

In tonights Meditation for the decade, we considered a few questions around our achievements for this year and what our biggest challenges were. We also reflected on where we were 10 years ago, to where we are now.

Knowing that naturally we are evolving and with more mindfulness practice, we are always moving in the direction we are destined for. So those things that we want to improve on or be better at, now, may be a piece of piss by 2030.

I remember in 2010 I wanted ‘balance’ in my life. I was always swinging from one extreme to the other and now balance it is easy as 1, 2, 3!

How can you reflect on 2019, so you can move into 2020 feeling inspired and clear? Ask yourself these questions and take one or two minutes to write the answers:

  1. What company do(did) you keep this year? Do (did) they inspire you?
  2. What did you want to achieve this year?
  3. What was your biggest challenge? What depleted you?
  4. What did these challenges teach you about yourself?
  5. Now, what do you want more of?
  6. Complete this statement “I now take responsibility for …”  (be as accurate as you can, rather than too broad)

What is your intention now? Trust that by 2030 it will be a piece of piss, which can help you relax now and be a magnet for those things that you want. If you keep coming back to your intention in your daily rituals, habits and practice you will always be connected to what is best for you.

We remembered in tonight’s Meditation that it is being in the NOW that is what gets us to where we want to go, not by the thinking of how to get there (so much). So here’s a way you can practice being in the NOW so that you can take responsibility for what you want in your life:

*Practice daily or multiple times daily (have touch points in your day where you take a moment to ask yourself the following)…

  1. Sit or lie down comfortably in silence with no distraction (no phone + no cats).
  2. Observe how you feel physically and identify where you feel a sensation the most.
  3. What does it feel like? A dull ache, a fluter, pins and needles, a tightness, throbbing.
  4. Where do you feel it in the body? There might be multiple areas.
  5. Focus on this for a minute or so.
  6. Next, take your attention to how you feel emotionally.
  7. Could you name the emotion(s)? Anger, anxiety, awkwardness, boredom, calmness, craving, disappointment, envy, excitement, fear, guilt, interest, joy, pride, relief, sadness, satisfaction.
  8. Where do you feel these emotions in the body?
  9. Focus on this for a minute or so.
  10. Next, take your attention to your thoughts.
  11. What kind of thoughts are you having? Are they trying to solve something? Is it constant chatter? Judgemental or critical?
  12. Get curious and observe your thoughts for a minute or so.
  13. Now write this down and be as descriptive as you can.

This practice will develop your ability to understand how you feel in the NOW. It will develop your ability to describe how you feel (physically, emotional and mentally) and give you the tools to communicate authentically in future conversations.

When you can identify the above you know that if the feeling is good, you want more of that. Keep making the decisions and choices that take you to these places (and people). If it doesn’t, then you might possibly be moving in the direction that isn’t serving your intention (or purpose).
