LIVING ON PURPOSE⠀

One thing that will immensely impact the quality of your life and help you positively impact the world around you is your capacity to pay attention.⠀

We have a responsibility to respond but if we do not use/practice/cultivate power over our attention.... then we will most likely live a life filled with random reactions. Don't be a random reactor - it won't bring joy to you, or anyone!⠀

My belly is getting excited and telling me an October (online) Learn to Meditate Course is essential, it's time. I am infusing this with a greater 6 Week Course so if you are ready to inquire about either - drop me a line moonsyoga@gmail.com or keep an eye on here because - this is the only place I tend to tend to - these days x⠀

What does better look like?.
.
What does improvement actually look like?.
.
I'd that your better or someone else's?.
.
All these answers require some stillness, some space to listen to your answers. Your truth.
.
MEDITATION. Chill out with yourself for a little bit today, get some clarity about what better you are chasing and whether that better is in fact... YOUR better.

INFLUENCER.
.
Thought of the day.... (which I wish I was pondering over the crystal waters of Hvar, but hey today was pretty delicious here!).
.
The only thing I want to influence is... your ability to influence yourself. There seems to be such a inability to trust ourselves these days, perpetuated and normalised under the guise of 'trends/improvement/fun'. But it's dangerous. If we pattern our processes from an external source, if we allow ourselves to be so repeatedly influenced then.... will it be easy to make our way back home? Our way back from the vacuum to that intuitive natural wisdom within? Where will it stop, will we feel lost, will we be constantly striving?.
.
Pull back from getting pulled in. Be discerning across all areas of life - movement, fashion, diet. It all matters, using your choice across all areas, matters. Feel into what YOU need/want because THAT my friends is the only way you will feel aligned/fulfilled and content. That is the way we make internally sourced pathways that will bring us to the elements externally that resonate with us, the unique individual.
.
Also, let's not lose the beautiful multicoloured, multifaceted nature of humanities different identies. Look within, meditate, sit with yourself a little... and live your you on purpose.

Old me, Young me, Confused me.
.
Due to the zero issues I have about laughing at myself, I simply had to share this early 2000s flashback. I hope it brings you a Friday lol (or 10)! Who else did NOT have eyebrows back then!?.
.
But when I came upon this today it reminded about how far I've come from that time. This week was a bit mad haha... did I eh mention that @moonsyogaloft is back open... maybe a couple of times haha... But as I ran about and juggled bebé sans childcare (and no local family), I was late eating some meals and missed breakfast once. It got me thinking about how back in the day (the no eyebrows day), missing a meal would result in a giddy sense of winning. Sigh. The topic of disordered eating is so complex, so nuanced and individual that I'm not going deep here. But I simply wanted to share this observation and perhaps tentatively suggest that you notice, you observe, you admit (if only to yourself) if you feel elated in any strange way when you 'get to' skip a meal. YOU SHOULDN'T, so I softly suggest you perhaps explore that.
.
No judgement, just a suggestion that I wish could have been gently floated towards me back in the no eyebrows day. These fuller browed days, I just get hangry, annoyed that time slipped by, I ensure I make up what I've missed as I'm usually bloody starving. As I tucked into my takeaway and vino this evening I lifted my glass and toasted the freedom I have achieved over the last decade, the zero restriction relationship I now have with food that I'm immensely proud of. Sometimes it's important to notice, then celebrate, how far we've come. And even if you are just starting to inquire, that's still more than enough to celebrate!!!.
.
PS - I really hope you get a good laugh at this sun-in, orange tan, no eyebrow version of early 20s Moons!!!.

Yay.

That's all this woman has got for the gram this eve 🙌🏼 Off the grid there is an abundance of feels
... smiles/exhaustion/overwhelm/anticipation/celebration/gratitude/relief and serious bebé juggling but seeing you all breezing in and out with such big smiles on your faces is well..........everything.
.
I'll back with a more coherent update on this first week, but after being closed a full year...a FULL year, I'm simply drinking it in without pouring it out. For now, thanks - people are bloody wonderful. It's nice to come together and remember that precious fact. Wonderful.

H E A R T opening.
.
For a long while my heart has been shielded with a pandemic padding, a barrier that went up March 12th 2020 and was layered upon since then. I began deconstruction of said barrier over the last few months. Processing, feeling a dichotomy of both falling apart uncontrollably...(ouch) and very precisely positively unpacking (exciting)... I know some of you have felt the same.
.
As I've been doing my own work I've been planning something special to help support us all to step forward with intent. Cooking, brewing, dreaming, curating. We need to become empowered with choice as we step forward. It's time to peel our hearts open to all that this life has to offer. More details soon, just know I see you, I hear you and I'm excited to share this offering with you... Happy Tuesday x.

We've been waiting...
.
And waiting. Now nearly afraid to say the words out loud, so many false starts, holding off as others opened sooner. Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting. But now, it's time. We @moonsyogaloft are reopening Monday September 6th.
.
This special space is ready to hold space for all the healing, the rebuilding and reconnecting we all so badly need. It's time.
.
Back go school, back to routine, back to you. A true community space. Come as you are. It's always going to be enough in these walls.
.
Spaces are filling, I say that truthfully and not to rustle bidniz. It's exciting to see classes fill. We are excited. It's time.

The L I G H T flickering through once again.
.
For far too long so many of us have been in survival mode. Barriers up, fear mode switched on living in a reactive and reclusive state. Like so many I have had some difficult months readjusting my eyes to the brighter times of this emerging next chapter. Transitiontown is a vulnerable place built on shakey foundations. I'm not into the current trend of 'selling sad', I simply share so that people feeling similarly, feel seen.
.
My suggestion, my Thursday thought is... What is most important as we all navigate our own paths to our own next chapters is - awareness. The more time we spend consciously connecting inwards, the more clarity we will have over the roads best taken (for each of us) and how to protect those energies en route.
.
But... what's essential is, that we use that cultivated awareness to harness the power of choice & act on it. Choose to be led by your own intuitive wisdom, choose to sit with yourself each day in order to access it more & more clearly (meditation) and then... choose to begin again on purpose.
...

Moon R I S E.
.
S U N Rise.
.
Last night we stumbled down the lane in the twilight to welcome the full moon rising from the water and then after a quick sleep I joined some powerful women to welcome the sun back.
.
There is something spectacular about being in the velvety water when these great balls of energy shine down. These liminal spaces we can slip into, where we can let go of life's depleting demands and remember we are one with nature, we are whole.
.
This is not another stereotypical monthly feed flood Moon post - about full moons and letting go. It's simply a reminder to look up tonight and remember in the scheme of the infinite universe that it doesn't matter, the stuff, let it go. And that what does matter is how full you live the fleeting moments of life you are given (and what positive impact you can make).

T I M E.
.
... 'Time is like a handful of sand - the tighter you grasp it, the faster it runs through your fingers.'
.
How can we make the most of our time, how can can hold it a little more softly in the palm of our hands?.
.
Awareness, simply cultivating more awareness through our practices... will gift you the transformative power of choice. Off the treadmill, away from the shoulds. Choice with how we spend our time and the power of discernment.
.
When we are better connected into ourselves we are more aware....... it's as simple as that to begin with. We are more discerning with how we are living, what we are choosing and how our time is best spent in order to live a full and purpose filled life. In addition to this, we become more understanding and accepting or other people's choices - knowing that we all need different things as our sand slips through our individual fingers.
.
It's not something we simply start, it's a way of living we practice. That's why they are called... practices.
.
On a side note: here's hoping the littlest hands in our world grow up more impactfully aware. That they grow up better prepared, (as we try to be better)... to live an embodied life that is more supportive of the entire earth's wellbeing.
...

A little Monday evening enLIGHTenment suggestion...
.
If we could only better remember the fragility of our existence, we would be...
.
More motivated to embrace all the complex layers of life with a perspective giving 'one shot' mindset.
.
More discerning about how and who we spend our precious moments.
.
Less inclined to waste time sweating the small stuff, in lieu of savouring as many sweet simple moments as possible.
.
Sitting in meditation each day brings you home to yourself where you fully experience your aliveness. It's glorious but terrifyingly motivating to simultaneously experience your existence and remember it's fleeting time frame.
Make. It. Count.
...

T W I S T & shout 🙌🏼.
.
Twisting yourself into a pretzel isn't the point of Yoga. The point of Yoga (of which Meditation is an essential part!) is to acquire the ability to UNtwist yourself when the anxiety creeps in.
...

"Feeling empowered because of it..." What more would we want from a practice, eh??.
.
This is a clip from the end of a 25 minute med. It was too big for the gram to handle so I popped it on a @youtube Haha...but people, do not expect to find much else on my YT page. I just wanted to share this nice little 25min sesh with you all this morning and this was the easiest (link on my page). Simply lie down, get snuggly at some point this Monday and enjoy being guided back home to yourself. Relax, reconnect and gift yourself some time just........ being.
.
I teach people how to Meditate. But to flag - this is a far more guided version of the meditation technique I teach, I teach you an independent practice that isn't reliant on apps/recordings. But, it is nice from time to time to lie down and just enjoy the space being held for you. All my love and I really hope you enjoy! Oh and I'm not a robot in the sky so if you do enjoy, please save 👆🏼for another rainy day and comment 👇🏼so this human bean gets some smiles x

My ability to include athleisure wear in any outfit is not only something that needs to be documented on the grid but it must also be noted that if it was an Olympic sport, I would most definitely be bringing home the gold. @lululemon all day long, for all events, always 🥇 ...

It worked for me, it doesn't for everyone. Like everything in life - be kind, accepting and supportive of the vast array of colourful differences that make up the the fabric of our communities.

No - why not. No - do you want to go somewhere more private. No.

9 months today and still going strong. Immensely (eyes wide open) grateful to be able. Couldn't let this week go by without contributing to the beautiful posts and images flooding my feed ❤️

B A L A N C E.
.
How do we get it? How do we know we don't have it?.
.
Identifying imbalances in our life (emotionally, physically, energetically, etc) is the first step to creating the positive impactful change you might need. Often we are so tuned OUT of ourselves that we don't even know what's, what so we just continue to wander around in a perpetual state of 'meh/argh/ehh/blugh' (pick a sound effect that accurately reflects your muggle muddle).
.
Yeah, yeah, here she goes about to bang on about meditation again... 😳 Who me!? But really, come on.... (she says with an exasperated sigh) how are you/me/we meant to bring ourselves into a greater state of wellbeing without knowing how we truly are to begin with. Sit with yourselves for a little bit every day, that's it. BE. Tune in so that you can start to know yourself, to see your life being lived and possibly hear some simple answers that will improve... everything.
.
Simply a suggestion, never a decree. Think, ponder, muse, challenge but for the love of *insert higher being*...gift yourself some time with yourself. You're kinda awesome to be around. #beyourownbestfriend Mx.
...

Monday MUSINGS.
.
Busting into my head during my morning med & left to percolate all day....................... 'You don't have to change the world. You just have to change your world'.
.
Taking ownership of how you live; improving small areas within your grasp and being better for not only yourself but the people/environment in your close circle/culture. THIS is how we change the world in an achievable, accessible, subtlely radical way. Embody a life you want to see more of around you and watch that ripple effect flow...
.
(For me it's meditating my way daily to help cultivate a slow, mindful, loving living. I'm changing my world, one day at a time... And can I tell you, my world is pretty damn sweet these days).
