World Mental Health Day.
"That who, is you".
.
2020/2021 was (for most people) the most challenging/damaging time of our lives for people's health - both mentally & physically. But, as I'm always saying, in times of increasing challenge around us... we are only going find successful balance if we first place our energies into cultivating our INNER awareness.
.
Sadly, our culture profits on the opposite. We are pulled away from ourselves. "Hey look at me, you should be like me & insert spiritual *humble brag*, do what I say and you'll feel good like me"... warped mentality. Who you are consuming is not who you should be concerned about. That who, is you.
.
Noise, distraction & influence from around us is tantalising. Most of us scramble outside ourselves - in little squares, ticking boxes doing 'things' hoping to feel better. STOP, please, please stop, it's a slow process of trial & error. The only way we will all find our inner harmony is by looking within for the answers to who we are and what we need. If/when you are consuming externally, let it be from an embodied source - influence that is helping you back to you.
.
Shiny depictions of 'wellness' and people telling you what you 'should' do are going to do feck all for YOUR mental health. They in fact will most likely make you feel worse, less than, in aspiration of a fake cultivated brand.
.
I'm trying to be better on here, I suggest, I offer thoughts for you... YOURself to percolate on. But I'll keep trying to be better - we have a lot of conditioning to peel off. People working in wellbeing shouldn't simply subtly show off their own wellbeing or sell the sad, their role/dharma is to help you, help you - feel better.
.
So much love x.

TRANSITION.
.
I mentioned yesterday about how knowledge isn't actually power... but how applied knowledge is. How we can be surrounded more wellbeing sentiment than ever before but unless we integrate and engage with the wisdom... it's just nicer noise.
.
Meditation allows you to cultivate awareness, I'm always talking about how this is our most powerful tool. Awareness will facilitate transition from ideas about change... to realising transformation in our lives. We notice, we choose, we change. Just chill out with yourself for a while each day and strengthen your awareness - like building a muscle in the gym. Chill out, hang out, call it meditation or just call it a memoment.
.
I also love this quote too... “Change is situational. Transition, on the other hand, is psychological. It is not those events, but rather the inner reorientation or self-redefinition that you have to go through in order to incorporate any of those changes into your life. Without transition, a change is just a rearrangement of the furniture. Unless transition happens, the change won’t work, because it doesn’t take.” – William BRIDGES.
.
We are all in the midst of huge transition, so let's not just let the furniture be moved around us. Big love x.

TOUCH.
.
Meditation has become my mistress these last couple of years but mindful movement is so powerful and often a fantastic way to initially step into ourselves.
.
Placing our paws on the earth, mudras/energetic gestures or simply caressing/touching our own bodies with loving kindness - is extremely important. It not only draws our focus/feeling down from the overactive thinking mind but it connects parts of the body to one another & facilitates more awareness of our full body brain. It's primal, it doesn't have to be complex, but it's important to feel our being - not to mention the move it or lose it aspect of our mobility. You know I'm a fan of the wriggle, the scribble in class - but especially in these flux times, get connecting, get feeling/touching and moving. Move then be.
.
This morning amidst the mayhem of breakfast time, I took a moment to play in the light - pausing with awareness in your day is highly recommended, especially to play. Much love for anyone who sees my rambles on this gram of insta offerings x.

#internationaldaughterday ... Not that I partake in many of these trending 'days'... but on this rainy eve I'm curled up in the warmth of this memory and wanted to share. Although I keep you safe away from the interwebs most of the time & am concious not to overly broadcast my eventual fertility success insensitively - like any Mother..... the desire to shout about your magnificence is always there.
.
Willow Rose the day you were born part of my heart left my body, you are my heart in human form. I'll forever exist to make you smile as much as possible and not a day will go by that I don't tell you I love you. Thank you for giving me tingles each time I think about how privileged I am to call you, my girl.

Efficiency.
.
But why the teabag Moons!? Well, because it makes me laugh every time I open a box of tea. Why? Because I always split the teabags before they go in the caddy! Makes sense to me - when you want a cuppa, you don't have to go splitting 2x tea bags each time! Eugh, time wasting is my nemesis. My mother spotted it a while back and chided 'haha.. Of course you do that'. My nature is, to find the little efficiencies in life and make the most of them!.
.
To me it makes sense and I'm the exact same when it comes to my practices. My meditation students always say the same thing... I don't have time! Well, we do. (We just might not prioritise our practice). But I'm efficient with my practice, I will often do a deep hand moisturise or a facemask when I'm sitting. I might feel fatigued and use a bolster/cushion to elevate my heart/hips while I chill. I'm currently still feeding so depending on how lively Willow is, I'll drift into my mantra while I'm with her. Good vibes and good food - it's a winner. There are many ways to make the work, work in your day to day.
.
I get up early for practice or to teach, where there is a will, there is a way. Get curious about where you can be more efficient to get your practice in. Because nothing is going to change if nothing changes.
.
Oh and please tell me that other people do the teabag splitting thing!?!.

EMERGING.
.
From the fog... or still very much in it.
.
I've spoken to so many people lately who are very much struggling with emerging from the fog. Who feel that this is in fact some of the hardest times we have experienced even though we 'should' all be shifting onwards and upwards. I keep speaking about healing, about how this is just the start of the healing. We have all been through so much and it's very easy to get pushed around by the frantic acceleration happening in our external world. We need to be gentle with ourselves, with each other and to take all the time we need. Turn in.
.
When the world feels too fast, when we feel out of step with the beat, when we feel blinded by the fog...a fantastic approach is to just slow down. Work to your own time frames. Tread softly, resist the urge to race to keep up, just allow yourself some time to heal and emerge when you have found your rhythm. If this is resonating, know you are not alone - there's many in the foggy trenches with you. The healing has just begun so keep those 'shoulds' away, keep that pressure at bay. Much much, love. You've been through so much, you're doing great. Mx.

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!!!.

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).
