I recently learned that the soil in Wales is what makes the trees take on their craggy, gnarly shape. Which presumably means that the same acorn planted in Wales will look different to how it would if it were planted in England, or Scotland or the US or wherever you’re reading this from. This week … Continue reading Where are you planting your roots?
It was circa 2005. A late Saturday afternoon. I was getting ready to go out that night and was plowing through a pile of jeans, trying to find the pair that made my thighs look slightly thinner and my rear slightly firmer, without causing my stomach to overhang on the top. Pair after pair I … Continue reading Let go of the ‘jeans’ and set yourself free
The following process helps you come back to center when you are feeling anxious, stressed, frustrated, angry, can’t make a decision, overwhelmed, or just generally wound up. You can journal or meditate on the following. Step 1: Reflect on the situation that is causing the distress. 1. Name how you are feeling (the emotion). 2. Notice … Continue reading My True You Grounds – Embodiment Practice
A process for clearing out judgement, on the Full Moon, or anytime you're needing to release, soften your heart, and make space for more connected relationship. The next time you are feeling overwhelmed with too much on your plate, worried you’re not going to get the result you were aiming for, angry at someone else … Continue reading Full Moon Clearing Practice for more Loving Relationships
It was the last of our 36 calls in my 1 year mentorship program with Embody founder, Nadia Munla. We were in that sweet spot of looking back and celebrating all that had unfolded, as well as looking forward to what was on the horizon. She invited me to move through this transition with the … Continue reading A sustainable way to create your own rhythm and flow
It’s January. A new year. A new decade, and an ominous one at that. 2020. A year that holds a lot of hope. Maybe the magic of the double 20 will, poof!.. bring in a new president for the US, resolve the ongoing Brexit fiasco, reverse climate change, and bring peace to the Middle East … Continue reading Will your year be fearfully frenzied or faith filled in flow?
Well, you made it. You got through the 6 months of the year carrying you from light into utter darkness (in the northern hemisphere that is.) As I’m posting this, it’s actually the middle of the shortest, darkest, days. Did you know that instead of just one dark day, we are blessed with three? From … Continue reading December New Moon & Winter Solstice Reflections
I learned that full moons are great times for releasing ie letting go and surrendering (*see note below). For the Full Moon happening in the dead of winter, the darkest time of the year, in a season where messages of Peace are often shared with each other, maybe just let yourself go with that flow. … Continue reading December Full Moon Reflections
I never thought I’d be writing about moon cycles. I thought it was all a bit to woo-woo and new agey for me. I’ve come to love them now though. These cycles helped me find a natural rhythm that balances of structure and flow, and keeps me out of the all-or-nothing patterns that drove my … Continue reading Embodying the Nature in You
We are 19 days from the shortest day of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere). The darkness is literally growing day by day, a sign that winter is here. Yet when you think of December, darkness is rarely the first thing that comes to mind. It’s parties, and gatherings, and many festivities, sprinkled with … Continue reading An Embodiment Practice for Winter: Embracing the Dark
