Here are your fresh Love & Inspirations for the week ahead:
“At the core of our deepest longing is to be friends with ourselves, to hold and touch and dance and play with the pieces of soul that sparkle and form our true being”. – Matt Licata
2) Self-Compassion Guided Meditations
- Soothe, Soften, Allow -Working with emotions in the Body – Dr Kristin Neff
Are you going through a challenging moment? Feel triggered? Dark moon and new moon, can be especially challenging times of the cycle for some of us.
Self-compassion work is some of the most powerful way to access loving kindness towards ourself, and Dr. Kristin Neff offers us this incredible resource to help learn about self-compassion.
I experimented with this particular “sooth soften allow” meditation mentioned above this past week when some old emotions resurfaced, and I found it valuable. You may like to choose a different meditation to try. Let me know what you think!
3) Mystic Mamma
This is my go to source to learn more about new and full moon astrology. Hope you love it!
*NEW MOON* in Virgo brings forth healing, calling for purification so love can flow through.
We are in an age of healing ourselves and our planet, and that means awakening our collective mindset to a vibrational and energetic understanding of our universe.
We are each called to task and it begins in our body.
Her body is our body. We are not separate from Her.
Our task is to feel, work through and release all that blocks love from freely flowing through us.
We have so much collective grief and trauma that we carry in our root chakras and in our womb centers.
As we work with loving awareness to release the fear, the rage and the grief, we will begin to feel the regeneration and flow of our Life Force as it activates our creative powers.
Virgo reminds us that through our Earthly embodiment we become the Chalice.
She teaches us to ground into our Earth and offers her intuitive and discerning gifts to help us sort and map what is needed and what will serve the whole.
Her way is one of love, of caring and compassion for all living things.
4) Book I’m Reading
One of the topics we share in depth on our 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is Trauma-informed Yoga teaching practice. This area is starting to get a lot more attention in the Yoga world as we realise that it is highly common for people to experience the devastating and pervasive effects of trauma.
Trauma is a response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event, that can overwhelm an individual’s ability to cope, causing feelings of helplessness, a diminished sense of self and ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences.
In this powerful, informative and well-researched book, one of the world’s experts on traumatic stress offers a bold new paradigm for treatment, moving away from standard talking and drug therapies and towards an alternative approach that heals mind, brain and body.
5) Savasana Music
New moons are a naturally more reflective time. I like to take this nature given opportunity to slow down and take time to go inward. Pop on this playlist after a practice, or as your practice, and melt! Do you have a favourite savasana song? I’d LOVE to hear it!
So much LOVE & Blessings to you sweet one!
