Hello Beautiful Souls..
We are a week out from our first super moon for the year, A full moon in Leo. Those who have this sign in their chart may feel this transit more so than others..including myself I have a Leo Moon and Leo Sun 🦁🦁
with my main sign as a virgo.
It has been gaining strength as each day gets closer to this full moon, its going to give me the push I need as the start of this year has been a bit slow...
Since the new moon we have been feeling disoriented, scattered, up in the air and on the ground at the same time. For others it has brought activity and soft new moon vibes.
The new moon has asked us to look deeper at what is going on in our life and where we can change our mindset to a more balanced place and most of all, to find solace in being just in the MOMENT, not in the past or the future..
To me it has felt like ground hog day every day since new moon, struggling to find any momentum but i have had some small short energy surges and used those times to work on my business with the other 90% of my energy doing very little. .
This week, leading up to the full moon, I feel it will help many of us really release a lot of emotions and energy will no longer need.
This week I will seek solitude and continue to process the grief that i am still working through since i lost my little fur baby a month ago..I can't tell you how much my heart has been hurting but i am and always have been quite resilient and strong so i know it will be time that will help my heart heal..
May the week ahead bring us all some peace and new found balance so we are prepared for the upcoming full moon. .
May it also bring us the grace, understanding, acceptance to live in the moment
Nothing more, nothing less..
Sending Love ❤❤ #nothingmorenothingless#newmoonvibes#fullmoonvibes#awakening#grace#understanding#acceptance#liveinthemoment#quotes#furbaby#lostdog#leo#astrology#energyworker#thesacredlightintuitive#moment#healersofinstagram#oraclereadersofinstagram
Forget what has happened in the past. Learn from it, and let it shape your future...but until then, LIVE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT❤️. Yesterday already happened, and tomorrow isn't promised.
"A single word can be a powerful thing." - Ali Edwards (creator of the One Little Word.
This year I was introduced to a new concept by @cuddlesandcrumbs and @neelusjournal - One Little Word.
I saw some fellow #uaemombloggers come up with some wonderful ideas for their own words for 2018 and it got me thinking what is the one thing lacking in me?
I found the answer without much thought. I need to be more PRESENT in my situations and relationships.
Since childhood, I've known myself to perform better when I multitask. I just used to perform better when doing more than one thing at a time. Lately, it seems my mobile is taking over my life too - with most of my e-commerce business being run on my phone I am almost always on my phone. Social Media doesn't help either. The need to reach out and click a picture of what the kids are doing, is coming in the way of things too. This has to SLOW DOWN, if not completely STOP.
I've now realised that my mummy brain cannot perform well with multi-tasking and my frustration is only increasing by the day.
I have realised, I need to be fully PRESENT - in everything I do with my kids, from crafting to playing at the park and everything in between.
- in conversations with my parents, grandparents and in-laws, who are not getting any younger.
- in those fortunate few moments that my husband and I can get time for ourselves.
- in those precious memories I wish to make with my family and friends.
- in those rare moments of solitude I get for myself.
It's much more than keeping my phone down...its more about mentally asking myself to concentrate!

Do you have a word for yourself?

1st January 2018, after a buzzing last night mountains were covered with fog the day was sad and gloomy with mercury between 0 & 1 which made it almost impossible for Ruskin Bond to come at the bookstore for the traditional appearance on the first day of the New year.
The murk covered me and I started walking without any destination away from the bustling market. I remember taking a right turn down the slope where no one was going and 10 minutes into the unknown empty stretch I saw the path suddenly going Zig Zag and even more weirdly designed paths merging with it. I was not High or Drunk it was just the most impractically designed road I have ever seen. I kept on walking and the murkiness lost me as if it was also confused which turn to take and I just escaped from its grip.
Then the smiling faces with Apple cheeks appeared with the greetings of the new year. The trial revealed different shades with old beautiful Victorian styled houses to the haunted ones with cute little puppies to a dog which wanted to kill me for no reason and monkeys popping from trees to the rooftops up and down the hill. Locals told me that the path is called "barah kenche" like "twelve scissor" it was so apt. Someone with a scissor in his mind can only design this road and realised that I was so wrong it was such a practically designed road with twists and turns so close and balanced that a kid with his newly acquired walking skills to an old man with his stick, women with grass heaps on their heads to grungy men on their chetaks everyone could easily tread on it.
It was a reminder to keep my mind open and explore and to hatch new plans of meeting Mr. Bond.
I am returning from a six day social media fast, something my soul needed to come back to myself and tune out the white noise.
I find myself turning to social media when I need a quick fix or distraction. This fast gave me a much needed reprieve—to come back to my center, to God, to my truth.
I found the entire week to be an experiment in presence—how can I manage to be in the present moment without automatically reaching for my phone. Nine out of ten times, I’m reaching to resist whatever is happening in the moment in front of me.
I cannot tell you how many times I reached for my phone unconsciously before I caught myself. It forced me to face the moment and embrace it for exactly what it is, even if what is, is uncomfortable.
Once I settled into the uneasy feelings rather than running from them, they passed through me and I came back to the beauty in front of me, the beauty that is now.
I took the extra time to focus on myself, on my intentions, on being more than doing and enjoying the pure beauty of the world around me.
I couldn’t help but wonder how much I miss out on right in front of me simply because I’m scrolling.
I got to return to my truth without an influx of messages to add to the already full state of my mind and heart. I got to process exactly what is within me as it is. No outside guidance or comparison, just presence with the Divine.
When I tune out the white noise, I can fill myself with what God wants me to hear—through His word and those He speaks through.
I found much more than I bargained for by fasting social media. I grew closer to myself, to God, to my purpose and truth and to the world around me.
I also found at the end of six days that I wasn’t running to open Insta. I was excited to share my experience, but I was ok with letting that be after I finished enjoying the many miraculous moments of my day—plugged in completely to my world as it unfolds with awe inducing wonder and synchronicity.
I don’t want to miss out on this life while I’m still living it. There’s so much to be experienced when I set down the distractions and start opening up to the beauty within and around me.
Our first born child was not planned.
I was not married.
I was 25, getting my MBA, and my future job was locked-in.
I made a choice that would change the entire course of my life.
And abortion wasn’t an option.
But that was because I had a family who supported me.
I had a significant other who cared for me.
I had a job that provided security.
I realized no woman wants to have an abortion.
The choice is one led by fear.
The choice is made because she feels she has no other option.
If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy know we are here for you.
I will help you. *
(This was a very challenging period in my life that I do not revisit often because it was so scary... when I feel more comfortable sharing what happened I will)
I sat at dinner tonight and had this nagging feeling in my ribs. I thought maybe it was something I ate but it felt different. Anxiety perhaps? If it is, it’s creeping in and I feel like I need to stay busy this weekend to avoid thinking about the phone call from our Vet that we are patiently waiting for. Ugh! Waiting is the worst. Trying to #bebrave but man, it’s tough!
Love this view from one of the sweetest and most genuine friends I met on IG - Patti @italianblonde1 - she’s one to follow guys! Trust me. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Chat soon 😘
Don't spend your life wondering "what if" and worrying over something you have no control of. What's done is done. Looking backwards will cause you to miss out on new blessings ahead. Don’t look back. Move on. 😇 Live in the moment!
