Learn to Meditate ❤️.
.
ONE spot left for May's Course! These are limited to small personal group learning experiences and I WILL NOT be running one in June, as I'll be submerged in the wonderful @theartofteaching.
.
The method is... demystify, explain, experience, unlearn, learn, empower, accept and be. You'll finish knowing how to meditate independently but having the support of an international and local community and monthly meet ups to help keep you on track. This is not about acquiring it's about remembering all that we already have/are/know. Stepping forward into life more aware, connected and in flow.
.
Any questions, just shout! It's running this Tues/Wednes/Thursday from 7pm each evening. If you feel the urge fantastic, if you know someone who's in need of a nudge towards it - tag them below.
.
Have a beautiful Sunday you fantastic hoomans. Mx.

I wish I could do it for you...
.
For the last week this sentence has been rolling around my heart. In and out like a little wave lapping softly around my thoughts. I wish I could do it for you. I WISH I could do it for you.
.
I can teach people to meditate. I can help them unlearn lots of preconceived ideas about what it is they need to 'do' to meditate. I can answer questions and hold monthly meet ups to help people keep on track. I've studied for a long time in order to become certified & have a deep embodiment in order to teach from truth. But I can't do it for you. I wish I could do it for you.
.
Ultimately it's down to each of us as an individual to be rebellious in the face of 'too busy', to make time. It's our own responsibility to carve out time for self enquiry in order to respond to this life experience with more awareness. And it's our privilege to 'get to' better connect in... to better connect out. A privilege I get to help you to experience but I can't do it for you.
.
I wish I could do it for you all but you all can do it for yourself (just a few minutes a day)... which will in turn transform it all for... us all! #bethechange #conciouschange #collective #yourpower #awareness #changeiscoming Mx

Wriggling Home.
.
So many thoughts and feelings this week with #dil and #maternalmentalhealth present in my heart. Letting it fuel my purpose through process, in teaching & serving.
.
Quest: Greater connection to the source/the self/ the knowing/the home. Simply... being better mates with yourself!.
.
Pathway: Movement, Meditation & Mindful living. Sit, sit, sit with yourself.
.
The Work: Acceptance of the both, the many, the ever changing complex abundance of all spectrums of our being. Without judgment or over identification with one aspect. That we are non-dualistic, non-binary people who can simultaneously be a total mess and a fully functioning participant of life. Strong while falling apart. Crying in the sunshine. Weak while taking care of others. Angry, full of rage but grateful and full of love. Terrified and confident. Ugly and kind. Healing while teaching. Lonely but allergic to crowds. Grateful and uncomfortable.
.
We don't have to fit in a box, let's smash the box & reject ideologies that put us in it... and then sit in the debris - happy, relieved in the acceptance of it all. Knowing that it's OK to be it all...
.
... and that we ALL feel it all, no matter what you presume when you look at someone.

G I V E ❤️.
.
I've been paralysed with shock at the devestation in India. Sometimes when I feel so compelled to help I turn myself inside out, around in circles but don't know where to start!?! My evening meditation kept bringing up the word give. Just give Moons and do something small. Just do something! So, I am, and any funds raised will go directly to the beauty @yogawithmanasi who will send them directly to people on the ground in India who need our help.
.
If you are like me then this is a simple. quick. direct. way to help - click through -> gf.me/u/zsditc (also in bio) donate, and every person who donates will go into a draw for my next 'Learn to Meditate Course' in two weeks time. Even if you don't want to take the course yourself, if you win, you can gift it to a friend who does. Give - Recieve - Help.
.
We can a GIVE, a little, nothing is too small. Throw in a fiver or the price of your usual coffee. Let's give back to a country who gave us the wisdom practices that so many of us live by. It's time to give back.
.

...

BEALTAINE blessings!.
.
A beautiful celebration of bright new days to come. A cross quarter day between Spring Equinox / Summer Solstice and an opportunity to observe... with the illuminating light of summer days.
.
This is a unique transitiory time where many are rushing like moths to a flame towards reopening/reconnecting. Running towards the emerging summer of these covid times. There is a potential I would love to suggest (I always simply suggest!) ....... a potential that we often rush too much toward the external attractive light in lieu of maintaining the luminosity of our inner sunshine.
.
A lot of us have cultivated a stronger inner connection through these quieter times. Perhaps take some time this May Day to reflect on how you will maintain this inner source going forward into a new chapter (where there will be more external resourcing on offer) . How we can embrace the long awaited summer sun but keep our own fires burning bright within??? Writing, meditation, singing, dancing, yoga asana - a dedication to your own 'inner standing'... daily. committed. practices (sadhana/abhyasa).
.
How are you going to move forward enjoying the new light as *an addition* to your own regenerating wellspring of glittering inner youness!!!!!!!!!
...

What am I cooking up? LOTS.
.
And not in that humble brag or flipped marketing tactic. I'm just ready to start stepping back up....
.
I have some questions over on my stories (over!? who am I, Oprah!?) annnyway, I'd love some truth bomb responses from you legends if you have a few seconds. I want to curate what I create with you special hoomans, with you, for you.
.
Much love always on this magic Monday x
...

Question: Ready to bloom... or blooming ready!?.
.
Suggestion: Some of us are so bloomin ready for this to be over, for a return to how it was... others are excited at the opportunity we have to emerge like a new blossom - changed for good. Whatever is motivating you to move forward or if you actually just feel stuck/struck in the craziness of this last year - do it with awareness. Know yourself, observe yourself living this life a little bit more (or a lot).
.
If you need more time - notice that you need more time and be slow about re-engaging. If you are overit.com and ploughing ahead as soon as a government lift is announced - be deliberate and strategic, don't strive mindlessly. If you are excited to create shift - plan to orchestrate your desires into reality, don't just hope they happen. Live intentionally.
.
We all have a moment, a collective breath this next while to move into this next chapter with an empowering awareness that will best inform the choices you make. You have this power, so perhaps sit a while each day, a daily med to connect into this awareness. That is all it is my friends - a little me time to best use this life... time x.
.
(And yes.... These are the random thoughts that pour out of my heart when I am walking under blossoms with my babe!)
...

Mama Gaia 🌍.

Never have I felt more connected to you than I do now. Part of the cycle, humbled by the sense of symbiosis, passionate about honouring the sacredness of this life that you give us! Every meditation is a pathway back to our true nature, which is being with nature. Utterly indulgent throwback pic to when she was inside out west beneath Croagh Patrick between lockdowns last year!.
.
“It is this earth that, like a kind mother, received us at our birth, and sustains us when born; it is this alone, of all the elements around us, that is never found an enemy of man… though she produces the poison, she still supplies the antidote… and when life is over she piously covers his remains in her bosom.” — Pliny the Elder.

WHY?.
.
To find purpose in the process.
.
Hint; the process is the living. The every day, mundane, challenging, joyful, sad and happy life stuff.
.
Giving yourself a daily check in to accept/welcome/celebrate the process as your purpose instead of the constant strive outside yourself towards a goal orientated purpose. I can tell you, it's a gigantic relief to surrender that striving and spend a few minutes every day realigning to my purpose being the actual process.
.
Confused? Sit, be and let madame intuition feel it out for you x

Let me show you how I feel when the sun shines, the sky is blue... and I have a whole day ahead to be barefoot & free!.

Yep, it's all the powerful badass Kali love filled vibes exploring from my heart out this mudra!.

Are you ready!?.
.
Are you ready to dive back in... to take flight... to slide into the slipstream of busy? Mmm...I'm NOT...so, as always I'm simply floating this as a *suggestion* to you all to nibble on.
.
It's OK that (even though we have had lots of time in covidtimes), you still don't know exactly what you want your life to look like! It's OK if you feel like you've been hit by a bus and have uncomfortable feelings about meeting people/doing the things. Your timeline is your own. Just because a government begins to shift legal parameters doesn't mean you need to jump back in until you're ready...... if at all.
.
The perspective this last year has given us will have many people questioning old paradigms, relationships and ways of life. This is bloody GREAT! Ultimately the slower pace and quieter life is what I wish for everyone-> in small pockets each day, in this thing I like to do /talk about/ teach called meditation!.
.
How can we harness this to intuitively create a life more aligned to who we are and how we want to live?? By utilising the power of awareness to wait until you *FEEL* where you want to go, then going there. Trust that gut, honour your intuitive wisdom by following through on your own desires. Meditation is intuition mining, a natural being state that allows all that truth to flow. Because you do know, you know. Then as the popular saying goes... YOU DO YOU.
.
Happy Friday Lovely Hoomans x

R E M I N D E R...
.
After seeing more atrocities unfold over the last few days it's got me thinking about Human Rights, as in... the actual declaration created in 1948. (see below). Borne from the incomprehensible devestation we as humans carried out on one another in WWII, it was deemed imperative to lay out a framework for how we interact on this planet. It seems to have fallen by the way side with many many people forgetting we are all intrinsically linked, a unified symbioticly existing species. We really are all one! Holding space for this to percolate as I explore how I can be better. Scrolling, consuming, sharing fluffy happier content is OK once we are also listening, learning and allowing room for both truths. There is still so many inequalities and injustices our fellow beings, (people exactly like you and I)... have to endure. This is not OK (repeat, repeat, repeat).
.
......The traumatic events of the Second World War brought home that human rights are not always universally respected. The extermination of almost 17 million people during the Holocaust, including 6 million Jews, horrified the entire world.
.
In 1948, representatives from the 50 member states of the United Nations came together under the guidance of Eleanor Roosevelt (First Lady of the United States 1933-1945) to devise a list of all the human rights that everybody across the world should enjoy...
.
EVERY body, because everybody is a body just like you.
...

Y E S 🙌🏼.
.
Today my heart feels like it has expanded to take over every inch of my being. Since Willow left my body and took a part of my heart in hers to form her own self earthside............. I've meandered between the aching emptiness and an excitement about what will potentially fill the gap.
.
I accepted that this new space may fluctuate for a while - loss, fullness, grief, abundance, growth, fear (matresence) but today it feels like its filled up and overflowed to every inch of my being. But YES yes yes yes yesssssss today my friends I've realised that this gap is not a place that needs to be filled, it's simply a portal that I never want to close again. It has given me access to a deeper sense of being, an infinite ever expansive inner seer heartFULLness.... and also acts like a porthole that I can fling open to my loved ones/students to let my light beam out. My once perceived flaw is actually a precious key.
.
We are light and dark, an ever fluctuating, growing, transforming being. It's not always warm and fuzzy but with compassion and understanding we can navigate the way gently holding our own hand, being our own best friend in the process. So much love, endless, ever expanding love shining to you all. Mx
...

Why LEARN to Meditate? To hold space for yourself.
.
Suggestion: Learn to 'be' as opposed to tick a box and 'do'. Because... using apps, following guides, attending classes are great (as a support) BUT ultimately until we harness our power to truly BE in ourselves.......we are still using these as a form distraction from ourselves, as a crutch. Could they be blocking a clearer signal of intuitive wisdom from echoing forth. The feedback a little fuzzy, the potential depth a little shallow and the inner voice still a little too far away.
.
Big statement I know but that's how passionate I am about it. There's no point in training ourselves to become dependent on yet another outside source of guidance. Sure it'll tick a box but WHAT. IS. OUR. WHY....Just to get it done? or to truly practice meditation?.
.
WE are our best guides, our greatest teachers and given some framework - meditation is mind bogglingly easy!!! Humans BEING. I'm not saying the above aren't beneficial... ( and I don't know about you)...but I want a potent, efficient, maximising experience if I'm dedicating my precious time to it. Community is essential to everything I do but the actual meditation moments are most potent when it's simply solo. Group meds - for sure, every month! Holding space together, but in our own individual inner space. Intuition mining... is an inside job. Mx
...

Standing in a place of power...
.
I repeat time and time again that MY WHY for teaching Yoga & Meditation (and now teaching teachers!) is to guide people towards a deeply nourishing, loving and empowering relationship with themselves. Healing this relationship if needs be (helping people see that it needs healing!) and revealing a way of living that is influenced by inner wisdom rather than the usual external pressures or influence (rs).
.
You are more than enough already, you have the potential to be your own best friend but.... I want to show you how to feel into that truth yourself rather than just tell you.
.
When I'm focusing my energies into this area I feel like I am positively contributing to this world, I feel emPOWERed and proud to be of service to others (any way I can). My head and heart are firmly in our YTT then I will be focusing on my April 'Learn to Meditate' . I'm here to check in but outside of these squares in real life... I'm truly aiming to be more present to make the most positive impact I can during this little life of mine. Mx
...

Why do I MEDITATE? To feel that light flutter through me like a soft releasing wind.
.
Each time I sit whether it's messy, full of thoughts, fidgety or heavy to begin...Even if don't want to show up & force myself to just get it done... It's as if I feel....
.
Cool hands smooth across my brow... Warmth hands softly hold my stomach...Heavy hands gently press my shoulders down and... Loving hands radiate compassion across my heart space.
.
Even though we can't hug each other, I love teaching people each month in my course that they can hug themselves with this simple act of self care... every. single. day.
...

H A N D S UP 🙌🏼.
.
Who wants to know more about hands!!! I have been quiet on here as I'm concentrating on where I am. Where that is, is... concentrating on our upcoming @theartofteaching YTT which starts this Friday. It's also pouring my energy into navigating the coronacoaster holding my baby & mental health preciously close to my heart.
.
But I digress, this morning I saw @erica_bracken mention hand to floor activation in a story & the words bubbled up so here they are...
.
There's a beautiful physical/energetic magic created when we root our paws in the earth. Any hands down pose gives an opportunity to engage a little love lock/valve called Hasta Bandha. Pressing into finger tips, knuckle pads & thumb... not only releaves overloading on our wrists but it also palates the TCM points that correspond to our lungs, pericardium and heart. Using a 'root2rise' approach to lift/tent the centre palm creates a powerful dual action and encourages more engagement of the forearm muscles. I could go on. Give it a go keeping these in mind and see how it feels. Suggestion: start in tabletop & increase pressure in a mindful plank pose or down dog 🙌🏼. I'd love to know how you find it 👇🏼 or save to practice next time 👆🏼 Mxxx
...

Time keeps rolling by...
.
Through the good days and the glitchy moments it's slowly rolling on by. My wellbeing practices don't eradicate the glitchy wobbly days but they help me to recover more quickly and to have greater perspective throughout.
.
Meditation cultivates a witnessing superpower, a super skill we deepen/develop which allows us to observe the situation rather than drowning in it. Today was messy, glitchy, busy... one of those full but empty covid days that leaves you unsatisfied. But I see it... noting that I am not...of it. Beneath the meh, I'm still connected to each moment & maximising this precious countdown life that is rolling on by. Discerning with what I can do to ease situations, aware of physical reactions to stressors and breathing through it all with love for all.
.
#mondaymusings didn't happen, priorities were chosen, maybe tomorrow or later in the week. Today baby was cuddled as my tip top priority, I'm hers completely on vaccine day. As a mother I especially treasure my ever growing ability to refrain from reacting as deeply as I once would have. A priceless ability in the home or boardroom! I'm bloody proud of myself when I overcome reaction in lieu of refined response. You're screaming but I am calm as I can. Even these moments are one's to embrace because time is rolling, rolling on by (for us all) x
