I’m so grateful we made it. Our 2020, in its spectrum of ludicrous to loving is both overwhelming while raising relevancy in our relations to each other and our home.
Finding myself having had both positive and negative aspects of rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience, this year has been made do-able because I engage in my daily practice. When a daily practice is created and developed, it astounds in how its perfection is beautifully humbling. My path leads to a point of removing the last petals of rose coloured glasses. In turn highlighting much of my list above and thankfully leaning into more positive outcomes. If you need, in a ratio of 3:1.
On our path teachings and depth, remind of the benefit of learning as an ongoing component in life. Respecting tradition, ongoing learning supports a highlight to new understanding and its ability to serve the present moment. A daily practice within our selves or our spaces, en-lightens. If you consider this as a lightening within you may find yourself on the inside of feeling connected. These practices, Feng Shui, Astrology, Geobiology, Yoga and Meditation are traditions aiding development in enlightenment, with great success.
Success can come in the forms of; rewards, protection, synchronicity, distillation, curiosity and experience. I hope for your release of 2020, you find more of these, peace and much love.
This 2020 Photo Series by Ruby, is an idea that came to mind, as a solution to the show that is this year. A look at everyday moments, hoping to catch that moment of colour. To share it. To speak to each of us. To call up a vibration of kindness. A moment of saturation to rain through your vision. To heal. Despite what our ego would have us believe, we all have things that can heal. These photos titled Seeking Colour, is an effort in helping us to restore.
Colour raises our souls and is a warm welcome home, like the flowers, both literally and figuratively. Photographed on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It’s part of my balance to a lot of other very important images right now. Nigeria, New York, Melbourne and Beirut, to name a few.
In the last couple of weeks, I started to ‘Seek Colour’ as a reminder that the world has a myriad of things that are possible. For me the most beautiful of these is nature, wild. I was able to watch the birds in my neighbourhood, flash with bright primary splashes in the morning and by the afternoon, I wanted to soak my eyes with colour to recover, to remember, to care.
Any one of these ingredients are, so good right now. They smell and taste delicious. Our food is the most immediate option for fortifying our presence. Be conscious of how you fuel your system. Is it good right now?
A simple addition to any routine, is to choose any one of these ingredients and add it into current moments. If you like tea, lemon, fennel seeds, lime, lavender in an infuser will aid your immune system, nervous system and cleanse organs. If you don’t drink a lot of tea, consider which ingredient, except carrot, would you like to smell in a cup of warm water on your bedside table as you settle to sleep? Allowing the cup to cool overnight and in the morning, can be poured into composte or the garden bed. If you would like to combine a few ingredients, a pot of water on the stove with, for example, bay leaves, fennel and lemon smells lovely extending through the house in aid of restoring appetite, stamina, settling the nerves and supporting respiratory health. If you have a few dollars, fresh twigs from the tree and lavender flowers can be a lovely welcome home.
Of course these can be added to meals, and I speak especially of carrot, although the oil, if you have access is delicious on the skin. Regenerative and good for skin health, loaded with anti oxidants, carrot oil can be added to your moisturiser for an at home pamper session. Be aware of taking a beat before going into the sun with this oil. Let it fully absorb into the skin. Almond oil is a good base for some drops of carrot oil. Patch test if you haven’t used oils before or a lot.
When adding these to our meals, any 1 of the above go well with rice, in salad and dressing, with a little salt and pepper a little goes a long way here; it is recommended that diet and health programs already in progress should be considered. Check with your current people.
In my experience, each one of these is great in any remedy, comments on these collectively from clients have included:
The freshness has reignited in my stamina.
A settling of my mind that help me feel content in my decision making.
My body softened and I slept well.
My ambition showed me how I really wanted to be a better communicator.
I loved the carrot and the lavender, I ate them together. I couldn’t stop smiling, people at the party kept telling me how happy I looked.
Incorporating small measures in a step by step fashion, help to establish new rhythms. Especially good when repairing or building neural pathways. Allowing a more general cohesion between thought and action. Supporting the energy for reframing of outmoded niche perspectives. Promoting understanding, calm, reason and active listening feeds into a better foundation for growth. These ingredients are an investment in your well being. Take your moment, to provide for your complete self. Engage in the unique power of you. Allow dignity and find your balance.
With a couple of retrogrades happening within the end of this year, its worth mentioning a couple of points for consideration, to ease your path. Our illumination continues on in regards to social issues, authority and leadership, expression and justice. These impact and influence us all, raising to the top what has not yet been fully addressed. Primal urges called out in our behaviour, ask us to think before acting and speaking, with taking time out for considerations around maturing and evolving.
Fear and isolation may add to what you are positioned to navigate, with power struggles and confrontation in the mix. Our opportunity to keep our path forward towards success is firstly to understand that blocks and challenges are a sign to slow down, even to back off to avoid making major mistakes. Patience and small, slow steps are going to aid reaching goals.
Integrating with the Age of Aquarius energy, brings these aspects into the spotlight; self expression, sexuality, gender, innovation, collective well being and health, logical thought and growth. These apply to personal and professional environments and conduct. In business this includes industries like, technology, finance, communication for example social media platforms as well as psychology, the arts and social services. Personal feelings will be raised in professional environments. Concentrating on maintaining is relevant for project outcomes as well as profits. Including employees and client bases would also be wise in your considerations here.
This is an opportunity to tidy up, mature and resolve recurring issues and energies from past life experiences. As in Feng Shui, what is imperfect is a moment of choice. Our choices find us where we are and offer alternate options, if you can be in the moment, in the space, to respond out of victim or perpetrator mindsets to learn how to safely express Mars energy. Mars relates to anger, rage, negative energy left unchecked. Learning to utilise better expression of these characteristics once navigated can bring relief, more options for outcomes and aids us in feeling safe in vulnerability and risk assessment for balanced actions in the future.
For this I would recommend utilising the words in the image as your touchstone for quiet contemplation, aiding you in continuing towards yours and our success.
I wanted to remind you today of magic, play and power. My day has been full of tech issues leading me to feel stagnant, like I’m taking steps backwards. I meditated and was reminded of how quiet helps. As well as even when its challenging, it is the very time to remember these aspects of our essence and that no matter what is going on for you today, tomorrow, next week these are essential to our well being.
The crow is an exceptional bird, highly perceptive they use tools, are fast learning, able to construct, solve problems and are adaptable. As well as recognising the importance of play. Magic can reinvigorate us, reconnect us and ground. Earthing our souls in the physical plane is crucial for clarity, building trust and remaining open in our agency of self. All supporting decision making and manifesting. Magic can help us step into the new, the unknown, carrying our faith, even if only in ourselves, into the future.
Beautiful dolphin, brings to us a sense of community, communication and playfulness. Giving our essence space to play aids our ability to be willing to engage. Enhancing solving problems while increasing creativity. Playfulness can allow us to try new things, to be in a learner mindset. Willingness aids us to have an open portal into our purpose.
Bee, our guide for pollinating our purpose with personal power. When we combine power with magical play, we are potent and fruitful. By utilising our essential unique approach, achieving our goals taps into a deep strength that is cosmically connected.
Finding our path forward, despite how we feel and doubt, is always served when we include magic, play and power. Step out of the immediate desire or call to have a fearful reaction. Create a space to play with your power and magic. Find your way to manifesting.
