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

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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ.
.
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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ.
.
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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ. I'd love to know how you find it ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ or save to practice next time ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ 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

Spring Equinox โš–๏ธ. "But Human Nature feels." But Human Nature feels the subtle shift towards the light, ever rooted in our rich dark foundations - but now emerging into greater light. A precipice, a day of balance today - equal day and night. Go gently through this radiant evolution, it's a Spring awakening like never before.
.
A LIGHT EXISTS IN SPRINGโ€ BY EMILY DICKINSON.
.
Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period โ€”
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay โ€”

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.
...

Reach out & recieve that green โ˜˜๏ธ.
.
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, music is humming, Daddy pottering in the garden and me left to simply stare at it all in wide eyed, heart full, eternal gratitude. Sipping tea, simply be. Simply being. Being aware, being present, being post meditation high and being heighten in my awareness of my deepest richest essence........... love.
.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to one and all but more importantly happy off day, happy space to remember every day is a gift day. Celebrate the green today, the green of our lands and the fresh green potential of a connected being filled, lived experience.
.
Thank you @lululemonuk Dublin family for letting me hold space for your morning meditation. So much love as always x

Sending GRร to all MNร.
.
Tomorrow is mothers day, a celebration for all who identify as a woman & /or who are in the role of mother. It can incredibly hard for those who have either lost theirs or who are yearning to be one.
.
For many years I felt a deafening emptiness echo louder inside me on Mothers Day. Empty, waiting, heavily juxtaposed to it all. And I can't even imagine how incredibly hard it is to want to celebrate with someone who has now passed. Even the fact that this year we are nearly all apart might be utterly heartbreaking for you.
.
No one knows what you are going through nor do they need to necessarily, but........... If for any reason tomorrow is hard for you, please protect yourself as much as possible. Maybe don't put yourself in harms way - scrolling, consuming the messages/images. Maybe fill your day by embracing what you DO have in your life right now, within your power right now, redirect your focus or if you prefer just snuggle down with some movies letting the day pass feeling whatever your feeling. Do what you need & be aware of those who might be hurting.
.
To everyone who might be triggered by tomorrow or the thought of it (for any myriad of reasons) I'm sending you a whole world of grรก. Take-care, in the truest meaning of those words xxx

One Year Ago Today... we saw your heartbeat โค๏ธ.
.
It was a rainy Wednesday evening last year March 11th, we shook with fear as my consultant searched for confirmation that after 5years, it had finally happened. It was Mikey's first and last appointment with me & we cried and laughed all the way home calling you 'pew, pew' as all we saw was a flashing heartbeat pinging on the screen. Our little moonbeam on screen who was/is to light up our life through all of the lonely grey days ahead.
.
Little did we know how the next 24hrs would roll out. Announcements, closing my beloved Loft, everything cancelled, isolation & nothing ever to be the same again. But.....in the face of all the negative memories.... I'm choosing to focus on the first event of this incredible 24hrs last year. You, you my little pew pew, my lockdown bestie inside and out! You are the most important thing on this earth and we will eventually get you to meet everyone, some day soon
x
...

"Yeah sure, I can do it standing on my head!" Nope, you can't, and you shouldn't have to pretend you can...
.
It breaks my heart when I hear people struggling unnecessarily in lieu of a perfectly acceptable truth. How many of us have drowned in a new job, fretted in a new relationship, imploded in new motherhood oh and how about.... panicked in a pandemic!?! If we haven't done something before it's perfectly normal to not be able to do it. Louder for the people at the back!!!!!!.
.
Yet, we sweat, stress, worry and tear ourselves up inside rather than saying...hey, I haven't done this before, I'm just here learning, I'm navigating my way to understanding as best I can. Meditation is a daily check in with how you are & and cultivation of awareness for our eyes open life. When we have that powerful perspective of awareness we can see these patterns of struggle emerge & we can give ourselves a break!.
.
These times are a perfect example, we DON'T know how to navigate these waters. Thats OK. But don't add to the complexity by masking it with a 'can do' attitude. It's OK to not be OK and to be your own best project of constant evolution/growth/understanding. You're doing great, just stop feeling like you have to make it look easier that it is. Own the unknown.
.
I don't know how to... pandemic, how to mother, how to wife, how to business etc etc etc and I'm going to start calling things out in future rather than excusing/hiding an acceptable unknown. Do you know your unknowns I'm talking about!?
...

What IS within your power?.
.
Many, many things my friend, MANY. We are currently feeling a huge sense of powerlessness due to the restrictions (what I wouldn't give to be dancing on the beach back home ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ) , but even without them we can often feel stuck in a loop of our own suffering. What I always try and direct people towards is what IS within their power. What is within your power today /this weekend - to make it better?.
.
It doesn't have to be large grandiose acts of reclaiming our power! For me, the other day - I declared a Moons Hour in my house. I ran an Epsom salts bath with a few drops of lavender, I stuck on my fave theordinary face mask, I popped some feel good 90s chill on Spotify, lit a candle and sunk down for a while observing my rich breath print amidst the steam. I then moisturised from tip to toe, taking care to knead/massage with a loving care normally substituted for speed. Extra thick Weleda face cream sinking in as I slowly brushed my hair, plaiting it carefully and popped on my softest fresh PJs. Not expensive, not groundbreaking but a heartbreakingly simply act of self kindness that I hadn't done in months. Deeeelicious.
.
Save ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผand create a self care collection folder hidden on your account so you can dip in to remind yourself of nice simple free things to do for yourself, that ARE easily within your power. Powerfully simple. Mx.
...

This is not meditation ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ.
.
In my new series of posts, I bring you....... (deep breath for long sentence)... stereotypical 'meditation' imagery that actually serves to only further alienate certain people from trying it. Meditation is a messy, anywhere anytime, sititng or lying down... date with yourself.
.
It does not have to be - somewhere beautiful. You do not have to sit in a particularly uncomfortable yet 'yogic' way. And here is the big shocker.... you do NOT have to empty your mind, stop thinking or DO anything much at all. Ah... that's better, seeming a little more palatable now?.
.
I have trained for a long time to be able to confidently teach people to specifically 'Learn to Meditate' . I'm certified and take embodiment of the practice very seriously. It's a one time gig, learn, and then you have the tools for a lifetime . I continue to be a support ongoing but the way I see it - let's make meditation accessible, let's remove dependancy & encourage empowering independence.
...

BE where you are!.
.
Yesterday I popped around to the Loft @moonsyogaloft. Which normally makes me sad, thinking of it empty, missing all the community. But, as I breezed into the evening sunlight and felt that special somthing that bubbles up every time people walk up those stairs... Peace, escape, retreat, relief, a certain softness that comes with arriving to a sacred space... I knew, I just knew that we will be back here soon to do begin the healing we so very much need.
.
Much of our heartache comes from resistance and wanting to be somewhere or having something we can't. But, what if we resist the resistance and embraced the now? BEing where we are, safe in the knowledge that we will get back to the places & faces we are missing. My motto for this week is BE WHERE I AM. Fully embrace what we DO have with an air of intentional acceptance and empowering excitement that other days will come. As I locked the gate I promised myself to stop pining. This too shall pass and our return to each other will be a beautiful thing xxx
...

MEDITATION.
.
The gift of time to yourself, of yourself.
.
The most common obstruction to a meditation practice I hear from my students is... 'I don't have time'. But let's be real, we certainly CAN make time but we don't prioritise it. So what we are basically doing is... NOT prioritising ourselves. Isn't that sad. By not prioritising ourselves each day we are repeatedly not seizing the opportunity to live into our full potential. Isn't that really sad!.
.
Think about it this way.... why wouldn't we do something every day that is free, not physically strenous & results in more clarity/health/wellbeing and release. Accessible to all, sadly accessed only by some. As always, simply putting some thoughts out here for you to think over, to mull over, to chew on... to see how they taste. Much love, Mx
