YOUR ETERNAL LIGHT IS THE UNLIMITED INSPIRATION OF THE COMPLETE HUMANITY 🙏

•••// The Instrument //••• I know you’ve been taught it and been told it and even though you think and believe you’re somebody, you are not a body.

You are NO BODY. 😳 yes I said it. But this is to empower your ‘self’. •
In order to do this sometimes you have to check your ‘ego’ and what it wants to make you think and believe. •
You have inherited a body to have this experience. Your body is an instrument. An instrument to channel ‘self’. •
Just as an instrument has to be cared for and tuned, so must you and your senses, so you can perceive and realise truth.
We can tune our instrument through movement, purification, meditation to play in harmony.

An instrument is not only ‘played’ to perform, but also to played to receive messages. Whichever way, it must be ‘played’ in order to be learned and so must you, ‘play’ within and without, through and beyond duality in order to discover ‘self’ in the cosmic dance of this universe. •
You must search, try and find ways to unify, be one in harmony with the instrument. Failing to do so we will counter dis- ease. Amongst our self and in turn our environment.

This is why we play. To know ‘self’. •
I hope this make sense and inspires you to delve deeper into your practice and understand the connections. Movement should not be sterile. The skill, is not the skill achieved like they would have you believe it’s understanding of ‘self’. It’s in the work, the practice, the ritual, the daily inquiry into self. •

Lessons Learned from a Toddler (5)
.
So I bet after my last post you would think I like to organize my schedule and be super routine oriented, right? Wrong—I get this projected on to me all the time because my little is on a schedule. I actually hate it. Being in the real world and working an 8-5 job for 8.5 years will force you to manage your time. Some of us don’t have the luxury of mandating our own time all day, and when you are fitting in exercise and household responsibilities on top of that after work 😝😩 you don’t have much of a choice but to organize your time. Unfortunately, once I got that freedom with my amazing and flexible work from home job after I had a baby, the baby freaked the F out every time anything different happened or his circumstances changed in the slightest. 🙄 Long story short, I love change and my baby does not. He’s habitual like his dad, and I love them both and their quirks like no one’s business. They are the perfect groundedness for my love for change. My husband’s nickname for me is #chaos 😂😂Give me all the different foods. Not a serial restaurant orderer here. Let me rearrange the furniture like 7 times. Mix and match my clothes all the time. I used to hate watching a movie more than once (back when I had the time to watch movies). Let me change jobs every couple of years so I don’t get bored, or pick a job in which I’m always learning new things. I practice mainly vinyasa because I hate the rigidity of the same sequence every day (although I do see its value as a control for measuring growth). I’ve wanted to live in a different city for about 10 years now, but I love change! And I love that I love change.

Monday challenge. Sit back, don’t engage when someone is trying to get you to rage, and breathe.

Could you be willing to embrace at least the possibility that you have enough and are enough?
.
This question is part of a self inquiry that can clear many subconscious blocks you may have about creating success, abundance and magic.
.
Ask the question again (you can sub “I” for “you” if you want). Allow whatever feelings or stories that come up into awareness to just be. You might experience them as a spinning vortex of energy appearing upon the stillness that you are. Breathe into them.
.
Remind yourself they are just energy and not who you are.
.
Who you are is not that which comes and goes...
.
See if you can explore until you get to a clear “yes” on the question.
.
You will probably experience some inner shifts if you do this with an open mind. Don’t force it — just explore the question.
.
You are opening to a more powerful place from which to create abundance and success.
.
You may wish to make this inquiry part of a regular meditation. Radiant Blessings 😊❤️🌟 PS: This is not to say you cannot create more! On the contrary, you are now in a much more powerful position from which to create. “Want “ equates with lack. Most people never realize this and stay stuck in “wanting.” #thesedonamethod #selfinquiry #meditations #mindfulnesspractice

Today I met a friend for lunch. During & after I was filled with so much love, happiness & ease. We laughed, we went deep, we caught up & she expressed her love & appreciation of me as her friend.
___
THESE are the friends I choose to allow into my sacred circle of energy. These are also the friends I make time for. I consciously make an effort to touch base & invite them out. And, I also love it when THEY call/text me just because they're thinking of me & desire a get together.
___
. Who do you allow in YOUR sacred circle of energy?
. Do your friends make you feel better or worse after being with them?
. Do your friends reciprocate and invite YOU out?
. Do YOU let your friends know how important they are to you by connecting with them often?
___
We can have the best partners in the world, yet to have a dear feminine friend is a true gift. Honour it. Love it. Cultivate it. Give it attention.
___
Just a little reminder for today. LOVE YOU! xo

Day 70: My Experiment

Sept 24, 2018 Photo by RyanMcGuire On Pixabay

I walked 1.57KM yesterday outside! The results are some pain and stiffness in the right leg and some cracking and pain in the left hip joint. It is almost 9am and feeling good. I have not worn my TENS in a few days but will do so today. I am recovering quite quickly unlike the last few years of days and days without any sign of recovery. Joy oh bliss.

I have a BodyTalk session with Ben Manalo tomorrow and John Veltheim’s last group session on pain Wednesday. I am very excited to see the result of those two sessions.

Zutta Codjoe has also done some Reiki (yesterday) and the benefits are apparent today in the hip joints especially. Britt Jorgenson also did some work that gave me a nice boost last week. Barbara Matszynska also does Reiki and massage for me once a week that is deeply relaxing.

Thank you all my healing helpers! You have been a God send over the last years.

Time to do some more reading on myths and fairy tales. The intricate connection between our journey and the wisdom of these tales are healing in themselves.

I am thinking of making a podcast on Cinderella. Stay tuned for those podcasts. I am sure you will find them as healing as I have.
Love to all.

It's always worth dedicating time to get to know yourself better. And when the self-enquiry is backed up with compassion and non-judgement, it's a relationship that's bound to flourish 💛

Shades upon shades of an endless array of colours,
You are perfectly whole in all that you are,
In all that you feel.
The scars and experiences need not always be a cloak of protection,
But perhaps that which offers you the light of compassion.
Just as the moon cycles around the earth, shifting and changing from light to dark,
You, too, can dwell in the depths of your body’s wisdom,
To trust that light is there always, always, always.
Embrace that which makes you unique,
The flaws, the failures, the hurdles, the over comings, the rising, the resilience,
For nothing is wasted...unless you allow it to be.
Your experiences, your imperfections have the potential to drive you forward into inspired action, direction and purpose.
You are perfectly whole, perfectly made. Stand in your truth, dear one.

In the last few days I’ve been thinking about the power of a question.
.
.
Asking questions - to ourselves and others creates space to invite answers and wisdom and insights in. .
.
When we want to connect someone on a deeper level we ask them questions and we are interested and invested in hearing the answers, this strengthens and grows our relationships.
.
.
It’s the same for self inquiry, I’ve had so much spiritual progress through self inquiry. We want to know about ourselves and we want answers to why we are the way we are, and how we can change certain aspects of ourselves or move through issues we are facing.
.
.
Without the power of question we are just surface level. We don’t look for more and just accept what is. It doesn’t have to be this way. .
.
Invest in yourself by asking questions and be open to the answers from a higher intelligence not from the lower mind. Find some quiet, drop into your body, ask the question and stay in your body using breath or any other embodiment techniques, listening not with your mind but with our whole body.
It may not come straight away but keep doing this, it may come to you through another person or a sign or a book or a song lyric. Just be motivated enough to ask and open enough to receive 💓

//Learning how to express ourselves as a human being is one of the biggest mountains we climb throughout our lifetime; finding out how to express our divinity and connectedness with everything yet also exhale the uniqueness of our soul. Speaking your truth, living authentically and fueling your power from your creativity! \\ This 3 month pause has flowed so strongly up and down the rickety rollercoaster of life and has allowed me to truly drop in to my experience of duality. Beginning with diving deep into the illusory pain we hold within ourselves to then finding ecstasy in the release of these patterns. After digging deep, it brings a heightened awareness to the stories that give us this righteous egoic identity. Then you slowly start to see the ‘movie’ of your ego and you catch yourself acting. This is where transformation begins...awareness with full presence in each moment. As this integrates into your being, reality really can be seen as the game that it is...and then anything that triggers pain in you can be seen as a gift to show you what’s not yet healed. Surrendering to it and holding your hands up = Liberation.
