“One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.” (Henry David Thoreau)
In the act of slowing down for late summer, I am very much in preparation mode and writing this serves as a reminder that during the darker days there is always light even if only a little. I very much struggle in the winter when we have darker and shorter days, and probably a lot of people can relate to this, but rather than pre-empting how I’m going to be or how I may feel it’s much better focusing on the now. It is staying in the now that will ultimately serve us. It it what will help us grow and keep to the sun as we move through the seasons one by one and go right back to the beginning.
It has been a year since I started a course called Naturopathic Nutrition and I am grateful for the healing it has brought me. After many years of personal development it never ceases to amaze me what else is out there that will serve my soul evolution. I felt like this course was a step up in weaving the other pieces together and being able to take charge of my health again. Sometimes when things happen in life or we get ill, it can seem hopeless. When the medical profession says there is no cure that is not the end. In fact, no matter what happens there is always something you can do to help yourself even if it’s changing your mindset to start off with to see what is possible and what you can change. There will always be factors out of our control in life but that doesn’t take away who you are or your sense of spirit. It can make all the difference in the world and your healing matters. It is the best gift you can give to Life.
I love what I am doing now and what I am learning. It makes me feel like every day is summer. As always it comes back to food with me and it brings me such joy. I have loved food all my life and this for certain will not change. I love and appreciate food more than ever before because of my experiences. Here is short caption of why food means so much to me today on one of my blog pages – Naturopathic Nutrition.
Have a great delicious week!
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.
