Retrograde Magic

Hello beautiful readers,

This week has seen the introduction of another Mercury Retrograde from the 7th July up until 31st July. I can’t pretend I know what this means in astrological terms with what planets are aligned or not aligned. I only know from previous Mercury Retrogrades that it can turn life topsy turvy and for the people around me. It can be a trying time where things which are not working comes up to test us and see if we’ve really grown or learned our lessons. I don’t know about you but when I know another Mercury Retrograde is coming I think to myself what on Earth has the Universe got in store for me this time. Communications can get disrupted and it’s usually not a good time to start something new.

However, despite some of the negative concepts that come out of a Mercury Retrograde when you read about it, there is also a positive spin and light at the end of the tunnel. This month is a good time for reflection and meditation. It is in those moments we can reach into our soul and find the answers. It can give clues to what we need to be working on or letting go of this month. It is also important during this time to surround yourself with positivity and positive people as you go through it.

I am working on finishing projects which is taking up a lot of my free time and this seems to be making this particular Mercury Retrograde a smoother ride. I am a bit of a procrastinator and it sometimes takes up so much energy. All the times I think about doing something (or rather not doing it), it could be time well spent to actually do something. Can you relate? I made it a commitment this month to finish what I need to finish and it’s going well so far.

When you commit and stick with it, I find that the Universe also steps in to meet you halfway. When you do what you know you need to do it makes room for new things and gives way to new energy. This is the magic of commitment and being true to yourself. It is the beauty that can come out of this Retrograde.

May you find your magic this month and dance with life.

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.
