London is stirring and it’s exciting. Mind, body and soul she is being shaken up from her core.
The afternoon kicked off with the lovely Lou discussing How to Embrace Change. Her aim was to bring us a fresh and safe perspective on change and how to care for ourselves and be less anxious as we enter into the unknown.
How do you feel as we turn the corner into the blank pages of new year? It’s easy to feel afraid of the uncertaintly but as a wise chap once said:
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. ~ Socrates, Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman
Get excited! As Lou wonderfuly expressed, life isn’t a straight line leading us from A-B, life is like a slinky! Life is constant movement and cycles with points of change. Embrace it. Remind yourself that your past got you where you are today and forgive. Enjoy the magic carpet ride of life! Once you get excited change is no longer a scary place. Trust the journey and ensure that your decision making process is rooted in solid ground. Fears hold hands with each other so guys, cut those fuckers lose!
Jody radiates so much I just want to nest under her glow, period. Her Heal and Release section of the afternoon was to bring us a powerful healing and release group Light Grids clearing session. To let go of what no longer serves us so that we are ready to move forwards on our journey. Not only do I find such sessions pretty peersonal experiences but also I can’t do Jody justice in writing. So, I’ll simply urge you to be curious and to find out more about the magic of her work.
We have a resonsibility to bring change and to be the light in someone elses darkness. ~ Jody Shield
Let’s face it folks, it really is time to Get Addicted to the Good Stuff!
Joey and Pesia’s stories really resonated with me. I have worked really hard on forgiving myself for so, so much, it’s tough. It’s taken a long time to shake off the guilt and shame, I still cringe occasionally. These ladies are doing such a fantastic job, ten years ago I would have been so grateful for the help they offer.
During the final session of the afteroon the girls brought us 8 Spiritual Tools to help us become the healthiest, happiest, bestest versions of ourselves for 2015. Boy, what a gift! As they rightly stated, today’s culure promotes a sense of having to look outside of ourselves to find happiness, and it is a completly unrealistic expectation.
It’s time to ask yourself, where are you sat on the tapestry of life? Are you looking at the full picture?
Be kind to yourself.
Through Darkness Diamonds Spread Their Richest Light.
Look at those around you, do they light you up or bring you down?
Be open to HP (Higher Power/God/The Universe). Maybe you feel it now, maybe you are ready to open your mind to more, maybe it is still too soon. Wherever you are, just keep your mind open, you never know what you might miss.
Signs and synchronicities, or as the girls say Be open to the owls. My owls happen to be white feathers. Persia has dinosaurs, and why the hell not. Whatever your signs are, they are all around you reminding you that you are looked after. Open your eyes and you’ll see them.
Perhaps one of the scariest peices of advice they gave was that before you go into the light you have to look at the darkess. Bringing us full circle back to Lou’s pearls of wisdom. Our past is what got us here today and forgiveness is a radical act of freedom and self-compassion. This is by no means an overight fix. Only by introducing daily practice into your life does the light firmly shine through. Find what works for you through meditation, mindfulness, diet, exercise.
Remember, your past is the key to your future. Don’t go back to sleep. You are here for a reason reading this. Keep an open mind and heart, and maybe we’ll see you next time!
