There have been some recent planetary shifts that have helped me to dive into a whole new head space and I wanted to share how Working With The Elements is really helping me to create fantastic tools for transformation.
Being a quirky, flighty Aquarian myself I often find I have ideas aplenty, yet harnessing the good ones and staying focused? This I have found slightly more challenging.
My true element being an Aquarian is Air and I have oodles of it in my chart. Air is my Sun Sign and my Rising sign and without embodying all of the other elements my own personal journey has been somewhat chaotic for a while (9 moves in 7 years, and that’s not even half of it…) quite literally allowing myself to be blown around all over the place. I have been working on this and have devised my elemental tools for transformation; ensuring ways to have a pro-active year and not a reactive one.
Earth – With every breath I plant the seeds of devotion, I am the farmer of my heart– Rumi
And so it is that NOW is the time for me to fully develop my yoga practice and as with all things when the student is ready the teacher appears. I have a great teacher in a class I really vibe with and surprisingly enough my partner too.
Referring back to me being a slightly chaotic and airy individual has meant that although I have been needing for this to happen I had not found the way to be consistent enough. My time is now. Grounding is of the utmost importance to me.
I walk in the woods daily. I am blessed because there are some beautiful woods right on my doorstep but I would encourage anyone to find a green space nearby for this vital ingredient to keeping connected to our Mother Earth.
You could contact the Open Spaces Society which is a national charity helping protect our open spaces and where you can find information about community events in your area.
From the earth I am enjoying an abundance of good fruit and veg from the wonderful Spring Gardens Nursery, this is my local greengrocers and now work space. Their cafe really is a delight to be in. I am finding I am being so much more conscious and mindful while eating and what a difference this is making to my mental health.
Water – Life is a balance of holding on and letting go- Rumi
The element of water rules our emotions and can have us feeling pulled one way or another. The ebb and flow.
I have found numerous ways to connect on this one so here are my top four:
1.Drinking water, and lots of it. Not only is it really good for you and a true life sustainer but it is not expensive. Now doesn’t that make a change?
2.Stand Up Paddle-Boarding is a great new sport. Whilst it may not seem the perfect time of year just yet Spring is coming so put it on your radar and make some enquiries with your local water sports centre. Experiencing your exercise out on our big blue will help you to find your flow. To be out on the water in this way feels like a real meditation through movement, it helps build on your core muscle groups and you can either go it alone or engage in some down time with friends.
I have worked with the fabulous Louise George, Shaa Wasmund and Marie Forleo to name but a few and I will continue to aspire and connect with courageous souls who are out there in the arena, getting their arses kicked as Brene Brown would say and will be willing to coax you through to your next level with their warrior spirits and fierce hearts.
I am incredibly grateful for each and every one.
Learn, Develop, Grow, Share Repeat.
As for the nay sayers, the critics and the non believers, I simply stay away. I have dreams to make real here, negativity is a no go for me to be around. Find your tribe, love them hard.
