In general terms, this relates to allowing an ease in all measures of stepping forward. These for example can look like; completing as much preparation as your able for a meeting, in the moment presence in an old situation, reminding yourself of forgiveness value, giving yourself proper rest. Stepping forward is a peaceful declaration within self to redirect energy for a longer term goal and or better use. Consider function before form.
With this in mind, how do you want to take forward steps? As most of us are also in a readjusting of values sphere, take a beat and consider. Softly engage with the future you are walking towards. Be kind, utilise manageable chunks of information and take breaks from being ‘on’.
Sending you good vibes and safe passage throughout August.
This piece is titled, Stars and Water. An alchemical depiction of nature in transition. This work is about surrendering to change. The star in the centre is still a star, yet everything around it keeps moving, in and out of form.
The colour palette for this piece is particular to the warmth of dignity, stretch and communication. Similar in example to the 曆butterfly effect; in that small adjustments in the flow of the star, filter through surrounding energy, swirling with both light and dark. When mixed and transformed, the star is still a star. Astrology, healing, clairvoyance all teach us, that we are an interaction with the universe, through each other, our planet, our stars and the cosmic body it sits in, the Milky Way to the larger Cosmos. Our essence as humans in balance, naturally vibrates in and out of ideas, places, perceptions. Valuing the interaction of us with the universe as opposed to us ‘ruling’ the universe, creates a moment within our mental landscape to adjust without lack, sacrifice or misconception. Supporting the star to move and hold its essence.
Silver in this palette, was chosen with bronze wax, to show the beauty before joining, the elements igniting a creative spark. An illumination around the star.
I’m sharing this work today, in support of your creativity, day to day, step by step, toward healing solutions and integrity for our communities. Interact with care, grace and awareness for us to have better treatment of ourselves and each other.
Keeping your Mindfulness in your pocket relates to the mobile oriented world we are in, for me it has to be mobile so it goes where I go, home, office, around the globe. As well as keeping it in play.
Our purpose in mindfulness is to support a healthy perspective, to creatively resolve, to stay calm, to think clearly from a neutral space within, to hear our inner voice over the roar of ‘them’, to keep the spirit engaged while we work towards our goals, to name a few. Especially in relation to expanding your mindset, adapting it to new terms, understanding a new and or conflicting perspective and to grow.
In light of having this practice at your disposal, even in times where space, time and maybe your regular routine are not available or if the old methods need new energy we have the following tips.
Don’t get caught in symantics. Let go of distractions.
Have options. Rather than one favourite practice, have a few options.
Give yourself some time alone.
Cut yourself a break, if you break routine, restart.
Breath deeply. Often.
Remind yourself that you are learning. It’s called practice for a reason.
You don’t have to be at Guru level. Wherever your at is completely fine.
Whatever the feelings or thoughts, they are temporary.
It’s okay to give yourself permission.
Carry with you an understanding that your worth grows when you water mindfulness, just like a very beautiful flower. It’s okay to be a work in progress. It is not necessarily naive, a mistake, or crazy, to address the shadow self. Mindfulness is an interpretation of if nothing else, the inner selves true feelings.
Sending you loads of chill vibes and inspiration in your walk into mindfulness. R.
