The In-Between

Let your life sparkle with all colours of the rainbow.

After the initial excitement and the energy of the last New Moon, it got me thinking about goals and setting out to achieve them. What is it that sustains us and drives us? It’s easy to keep motivated when everything is new and you ride that wave of inspiration at the beginning but then what happens next. Speaking from experience sometimes this wave of inspiration can wear off. It is the nature of life with its ebbs and flows. I always find it helpful to go back to the beginning when this happens. They say go back to the drawing board… but I like to go back to the ‘inspiration board’ so to speak. This could be a vision board I created or goals or intentions I have physically written down before I set out to do something. It could even be the images I kept in my mind of the end goal and the dream that lives in my heart. Whatever it is, it’s about remembering why I want to do something and coming from that place. When we create from a place of purpose this is an absolute game changer. When we remember the ‘why’ I believe this is what sustains us. When we stay with that ‘why’ even the mundane can seem magical. At times when you feel like giving up, the part of your soul which remembers your purpose will push you forward and get you out of bed to cease another day. When you know your purpose for doing something, every step you take is part of the destination. It is part of who you are.

New Moon in Gemini 2019

Hello beautiful readers! This week has been the start of a new moon cycle with the New Moon in Gemini. I love the beginning of a new moon cycle because it gives an opportunity for a fresh start and re-assess our goals, needs and desires. It is an opportunity to affect change and look at what we wish to manifest and bring into our lives. What a gift we have been given and it costs nothing! It’s all about energy and thoughts and coming into being. I like to come back to that place and see what arises with every new cycle.

I took a big break from blogging so that I could do this for a long period of time. When I first started this blog about four years ago I was travelling a lot on what I like to call my ‘soul adventures’ and visiting or trekking places in the world that would call me. After my last ‘soul adventure’, I started an adventure of a different kind in which I continued my study of metaphysics and made a decision to follow my heart (and the food) to start studying Naturopathic Nutrition from last year onwards. As I was making these changes and decisions I didn’t feel the call to write again through the blog until now so here I am.

Writing has been a big part of my life whether I have been sharing it publicly or not. I think it’s always a brave thing to share what is stirring in your soul whether it’s through writing, painting or any other creative avenues but I am hoping by putting myself out there again it may inspire others to also follow their art and calling of the soul.

With the New Moon in Gemini the themes that are coming up for me are: Connection, Communication and Self-expression. These themes are perfect for the month ahead as we are in a season where everything around us in nature is alive and with that we can also come alive. As we work with the cycles of nature in creative ways we can absolutely manifest our dreams.

Stay tuned for more adventures!

Blessings,

Lisa

nature-3263198_1920“Winter always turns to spring.”
(Nichiren Daishonin)

This is one of my favourite Buddhist quotes. It reminds me of the realities of human life which we cannot escape. There will always be challenges, some greater than others, but our resolve to win is greater still. It’s what makes the world and the people in it so beautiful.

In the harshest of winters, things can seem so lifeless and so dark as light leaves with no ending in sight. Yet somehow the seasons come around as always, changing as we change, giving each of us a strong reminder to keep going and have hope for a better tomorrow.

Change can come in a variety of different ways and is not always easy. Sometimes when things are reaching breaking point, it is at that precise moment when a breakthrough is about to occur. If we have courage to step into it and move through it, we can learn so much about ourselves and our perspective of our circumstances can then be so different. This was certainly the case when I first heard the above quote. I didn’t believe it at first because I was at my lowest point with my health at the time and it seemed like there would never be a resolution to it or hope that my life would get better but it did.

When I was able to change my heart and really believe things could be different, this is when the miracle occurred and the light could enter again. As Marianne Williamson says, “a miracle is a shift of perception from fear to love.

Be ready and willing for your miracle!!

Lots of love,
Lisa
