The Choice For Love

Love is the foundation from which everything else is built.

Hi beautiful readers,

Last week’s energy with the Summer Solstice was particularly powerful. I can still feel it in the air this week as we enter this new season and changes are afloat in so many ways for all of us. We are also in the waning phase of the moon cycle which is a period of releasing and letting go of anything that no longer serves us. The two energies seem to be working in sync with each other to bring us what we need in our lives if we are open to it. In the time I took off from blogging, I have been tracking the moon cycle a lot more and how it can affect us, sometimes on such a subtle level, and unless we take the time to be still these subtle layers may go unnoticed.

During the Summer Solstice weekend I decided to go away on a retreat in Glastonbury set up by The School of Naturopathy Wales. It was such a magical weekend with amazing people and the journey we all shared together. Plus the plant based food that was served was out of this world and on a new level of deliciousness. I could easily stay vegan if I was served that food every day. Food has been and will remain one of my greatest loves in life. I made a commitment last year to begin my course to study Naturopathic Nutrition. It was the next step in my development and learning and it has been the greatest of years in terms of what I have got out of it for my own health and also the most challenging because of the healing that needed to occur for me to reach the stage during the Summer Solstice where I felt worthy within myself again and could stand proud of the woman I have become, knowing that I have so much more to give. The desire lives stronger than ever for me to fulfill my mission in this lifetime to help others with their health and wellbeing with the training I received and the life experiences I have been through.

I believe that no matter what it is we want or desire in life, we have to come from our heart space and resonate and align with the frequency of love. Love is the key and the foundation to everything else. Love can move mountains and unless we can feel that inside of ourselves, we can’t go out into the world and help others. The energy of love is the most powerful of all. Sometimes it takes going on a retreat, moving out of our comfort zone and taking some reflection time to come back to ourselves and this is where it starts. Love is the oxygen and elixir to enliven our spirits and when we are recharged and filled with loving goodness, it is then we can move out into the wider world to be who we are and do what we were born to do. I am still reflecting on my weekend away and moving through many shifts but I know from previous experiences that this is always for my Highest Good. I am happy to be here and sharing with you all again.

Namaste,
Lisa ♥

Footprints of Love

sunset-1130710_1920

“Before you lies the journey we all must travel. A journey whose length is not as important as the footprints we leave behind for others to follow. A journey that has many paths, and the one that you choose will decide the course your life will take. You can opt for the easy and well-trodden road, or you can venture down one rarely travelled road. Either way, you have the ability to make an impact upon this world, so long as you follow the leanings of your own heart rather than the desires of others. And whichever road you choose to walk, let it show a good and noble person passed this way. One who never sacrificed convictions for a place in the sun or the easy gain, but who kept to the true and right path. And let it also show that you did not count your wealth in riches, but in how many walk this earth with humanity in their hearts, because the footprints you made in this life showed you walked the footsteps of love.”
(Daniel Haughlan)

I love these words and the meaning behind them. It is true that there are many paths to take and so many opportunities in life which are sometimes disguised as endings or difficulties. They are but a mere window into the soul of who we are. They show us the way to a life that really matters, one that honours our very core and a freedom to live by choice. Who we decide to be no matter what circumstances we find ourselves is in fact the choice. I believe we can make a difference with what we have and with where we are. You always have the Power within.

The most important thing I learnt from going down the road less travelled is to always make sure I take myself with me. Wherever you go or end up be sure to let yourself in and take yourself on your own adventure. I used to be afraid of losing myself along the way after I fought so hard to discover who I really am. This is still an ongoing process and one that I’m sure will always continue. The more I live this life, the more I can see and feel in newfound ways. The more I am able to let the light shine and to let others see it too.

When you live from that real place within your heart, life flows. Sure there will be resistance along the way but what you’ll find brings far better reward than what you think you lost. With every loss is a gain if you remain open to your truth. You will meet the greatest love of your life… and that love is YOU.

Blessings,
Lisa
