Why Embody? Learn to trust the sweetness of surrender

My Monday mornings start with a 30 minute phone call with a friend, opening the week in prayerful contemplation. Today led us to the book “A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson; it opened to this prayer. “I surrender this to you. May it be used for your purposes. I ask that my heart byContinue reading “Why Embody? Learn to trust the sweetness of surrender”

Where are you planting your roots?

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.

December New Moon & Winter Solstice Reflections

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.)

FromContinue reading “December New Moon & Winter Solstice Reflections”

December Full Moon 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”

We are 19 days from the shortest day of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere).

Embodying your No… First steps out of fear and into Love

This part can be tricky. My ‘No’ is usually highly activated, full of anger, disappointment, hurt, and fear. It’s hard to stay connected to my center and my power when I want to express No: mostly because I’m afraid of rejection…. will my No be accepted? And also the fear of the other person’s reaction…Continue reading “Embodying your No… First steps out of fear and into Love”
