There’s Always More!

I can feel myself coming more strongly into my power, the current shift is not always comfortable but already beginning to yield positive results. When you are juggling a lot of balls simultaneously even seemingly small things can have an incredibly profound effect, and I’ve just reduced my stressors in the most delightful fashion! There was a stall at my regular sunday market with lots of belly dance gear, brightly coloured rich fabrics and sequins gleaming in the sunshine, and lo and behold, there was a black skirt with a HUGE amount of fabric in it. Enough to be perfect for my flamenco costume, add in a couple of scarves and some head pieces and I pretty much have the outfit covered.

See what tresure I found!

May not sound like much to some of you but it’s a weight off my mind, when you are in or on the edge of overwhelm, little things can really make a big difference. So if you do have a lot going on, look for anywhere you can reduce the causes small or large, there are times when shifting your perception cannot change the fact that you are simply doing too much, and so shedding becomes a necessity.

After the last week and a half of being sick with a cold and then the gastro bug, I feel thoroughly cleaned out, and the cold is still hanging around so obviously I still have a bit to go with that particular process. The best response I can come up with is to keep going with what I am doing and see what guidance comes my way, whether it be through my own channeling or someone else offering inspiration. There is much more to tell about my growing empowerment and seeming hiccoughs on the way but that will have to wait for another post, as I once famously wrote in a performance piece some years ago in Sydney, THERE’S ALWAYS MORE!

More LOVE,  more AUTHENTICITY, more PLEASURE……………. More Life to be lived…………….Bring it on I say!

Balance Of Care.

A couple of posts ago I was raving on about how great I felt after evicting what seemed like another nasty bug, it seemed so unfair when I had only recently spent a week in bed, so unusual for me. At the same time that I was feeling that energy surge through my body I was also aware that I was riding a fine line, that kind of enthusiasm can spend your vigour and take you back to a place of ill-health. It’s something we’ve all done at one time or another, when you have been feeling low the return to full life can almost be a bit overwhelming.

So I was determined not to allow that to happen, with two overnight shifts in a row and a busy weekend to follow I needed to make sure that I took proper care of myself. So I made sure to lie down and at least have a doze before going to flamenco class, it was particularly vigorous but I enjoy it so much it ends up giving me as much energy as it takes. If you are going to fill your life with a lot of activities then it is essential for most if not all of it to fill you with joy, that kind of passion will take you a long way although it doesn’t change the message that spirit is sending me to slow down.

Alas the bug was not completely cleared, so I’ve been trying to do what needs to be done at the same time as taking care of myself . That means green smoothies and meditation, after a long session on the laptop I went and lay on the earth for a while feeling the loving support of Mother Earth. Connecting your bare skin with the earth on a regular basis is sooooo important, you can feel any stress draining out, it’s a bit like the earthing wire in electrical systems.

So here I sit still feeling the sickness in my body, looking forward to a medicine circle where I will hopefully be able to journey to a place of full health. Shedding whatever needs to go, embracing the wonderful new beginning that has opened up for me as I move through this transition, into my wondrous new life!

So be it, so be it, so be it…………

Sexy Scorpio Does Flamenco.

From the shadow into the light! Dancing in the connections of loving frequencies I move on my own feet, in my own power, gliding across the ocean of love………… Life is a dance, between microcosm and macrocosm, atoms whirling through enormous space, nothing much is solid actually. What you can really rely on, is trust, trust and the path of the heart, the space of non judgement, the pathway of quiet fullness. Showing off allowed if it comes from the heart and gets my being singing with joy, particularly when flamenco dancing!

Flamenco-shoes

I am loving my flamenco classes more and more, so glad I gave it a go, almost didn’t, great teacher helps. As you can probably tell from my choice of pictures, I particularly like the flamenco shoes, bought my first pair, Salvios, on eBay, Goddess I love those shoes. The heels take a little getting used to, but its all worth it as you start to be able to let go of the technique, and begin to really enjoy the dance. Flamenco is all about attitude and showing off, but to get to a stage of being able to actually do a performance, you need to develop a set of skills that are well and truly worth showing off.

It’s good for my shoulders, a vulnerable place for me since my initiation in the Blue Mountains in 2008, if you would like to read that story check out four posts beginning with “The Birth Canal” on March 8 2013 and ending with “The Healing” on March 11 2013. All that fabulous shoulder movement in flamenco, almost seemed like a strain at first, but the more I do the stronger they get, that and the push ups I do most days. It’s also a wonderful arena to explore the realms of confidence and high self-esteem, and to channel sexual energy, mmmmmmm the dance moves do feel sexy………..

They say if you have Scorpio in your chart you think about sex a lot, my Scorpio moon is obviously letting loose with its influence, its having its way with my body and soul, a double helping please!
