Finding Your Rhythm

This morning I woke up reluctant to get up and although it was hard I got up - WHY? not because I have to go to work ... but because that is MY rhythm. I have had to have a few late nights with early rises of late and it has taken me out of my rhythm. 

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ? It meant that I am always tired, lethargic, a bit moody, n lack motivation for anything ... now thats hardly a fun place to be - and today I decided that was enough! 

I got up went to for a swim, did some morning movement rituals ("my" yoga) and well I can say the small amount of surface rust that started to build over the past 10 days is lifting. 

i understand a lot of us have work and other commitments that take us OUT of our rhythm but let me tell you a little secret - every 10 mins you spend getting yourself back to your rhythm the better off you will be! 

HOW DO I FIND MY RHYTHM? we all are either 'early riser' or 'late nighters' and when we push ourselves to the other extreme we find stimulants to compensate our rhythm and deep inside our nervous system is crying - i mean really soppy wet sad tears! DO THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU MOTIVATED - so get up that 10 mins earlier ... so thats what i did, today maaaay be a little off but tomorrow I know I will feel better - WHY? because I am a morning person. I accept this truly; to live with the sun means sooo much to me - my energy levels, my focus, lust for living - all benefit from being in that ... It also connects me with the greater forces - the elements; wave motion of fluids, natural spirals of energy, internal fire radiating love = connection. So it reminds me what I am here for - to connect, to be a beacon of light to see the light in others and reflect myself back at me = so in the true meaning of the word 'Namaste'

Enjoy!

 

Some Days Just Daze

Beauty is waking up

So today I was a funny day ... I woke up at the standard 4:29am but I couldnt get up ... usually I am all like "zang, get me to mediation land" but today ... I was like "that dream was way too wacky I gotta stay in dreamworld a bit longer and wake up again" so I did just that ... Now dreams are something I am going to share about today as they make NO SENSE to me ... tell me this - who put a bunch of sparkly bindis in patches on a hill to then be with a few of my good friends who then fall into them, waking only me up to be then in a sports car's back 'bench' seat, legs flailing in the air, holding a bag with a half fighting fish, half frog in it with my best mate driving. he then needing to park in a no stopping zone in some weird city?? 

GO FIGURE ... well somedays feel like this ... as in what am I doing? where am I going? ... So its days like this I go wow I need some A. reflection, B. Grounding. 

There are many ways we can ground and reflect and so I am going to share with you the Natty ways to do this ... 

1. take myself for a dip in the ocean ... if there is no ocean ... an epsom salt bath is awesome

2. stamp my feet

3. seat in 'yogi squat' for 5-10 mins and breathe into my base and see the breath spiral up and down my spine

3. eat 'rooted' vegies ie carrots, sweet potatoes, double make sure not to over eat and drink plenty of water

4. pay CLOSER attention to my words, sounds, actions and speak slowly! (this allows me to really 'check myself' and where I'm at. its much more tolerable for the ego to handle me telling myself im being a twat than my best gf or let alone a stranger)

I am totally the spirited sprite round so its fun to dance all up in the clouds - but its a long way to fall if you don't root yourself regularly ... and to be honest you can fly higher the more your ground down ;)

till next time!

live the light in you and see the light in each other!

peace! xx

New Moon Creativity

 

So i am not one to pay attention to one specific element. ie the moon, the weather, the stars, gosh even the financial climate ... but sometimes life throws you around (this is one of those weeks) and things happen and you're like "woow, ok universe, stop shaking me and what are you telling me ... "

Let me set the scene - every time I have looked at my phone this week it has been 11:11, 12:12, 17:17, 20:20 ... now i am no numerologist but like come on ... that is a pretty interesting phenomena. Well I have chosen to see this as 'I'm in perfect time with the universe' as this means I am to post the first of Life Refinement Therapies podcasts Woohoo! 

Now that is all well and lovely but as wise philosopher Alan Watts says "we live in a life of polarities" so theres other tid bits going on ... but lets not get gritty when we are sharing this joy right now (lets give it the credit it deserves) 

so I am sharing with you the virgin voyage of Life Refinement Therapies Podcasts. 

Please feel free to share, comment, email, or give me an old school call if you want to discuss anything further. 

Till next post!

Be Awesome!
