Summer Solistice

Solstice-1000x330

Today marks the beginning of the Summer Solstice, or Litha, in the Northern Hemisphere. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year- and the shortest night-where the northern pole of the Earth is pointing the closest to the sun as it will all year, before reversing its position heading back into the wintertime. It marks the height of warmth and sunshine, where summer fruits and vegetables are in full bloom and ripening in the heat. Litha, an ancient celebration of the Summer Solstice, is being widely celebrated today by people of many backgrounds and belief systems – so feel free to participate no matter what your beliefs are!

New Moon in Cancer

191cbac338

The new moon is upon us in a few days, this month the new moon is in Cancer. As always, the new moon is a time of rest and rejuvenation, a moment in the month to reflect on all that has been accomplished, and a time to soak it in. The time of introversion and a focus on self care has peaked. Allow yourself to jump head first into this YOU time, remembering that self-care isn’t selfish. Do what your body is telling you it needs, and allow this to be a time where you put yourself above anything else. Continue reading “New Moon in Cancer”

Embracing Vulnerability and the Raw & Real Project

Vulnerability is such a scary word, isn’t it? Putting yourself out there in such a raw way, allowing whatever may happen, to happen. Allowing yourself to feel your emotions in such a deep way, not only with yourself but whomever you chose to share that vulnerability with. It’s a moment in time where things are actually authentic. That’s such a rare thing in our society these days, where we have social media and all that comes along with it. You can’t be sure what’s real or true these days through the lens and filters of Facebook or Instagram. People love to show their highest and most proud moments, but usually don’t dare to show their moments of being human- full of emotion, insecurity, or authenticity with others.

Following the Moon Phases

Following the Moon Phases

The moon has a strong affect on our everyday world. From our tides and oceans, to our emotions and actions. Most people go about their day and their month unaware of what phase the moon is in, and how it is affecting and directing their life. They may be blissfully unaware of the fact that the full moon is making their emotions more intense, or that the new moon is causing them to feel withdrawn and introspective. We all know the ocean affects the tides, and being made of 75% water, wouldn’t it make sense that the moon has a large pull on us, as well? Continue reading “Following the Moon Phases”

Gathering in Sisterhood Circles

Gathering in Sisterhood Circles

Friday night I was feeling so many different emotions than I am feeling today, on Monday afternoon. I had to do a weekend intensive at my school, a weekend of 20 hours of Prenatal Yoga. Friday night I was sad about spending the weekend away from my family, essentially I felt as if I was going to waste the whole weekend. I had no idea what was in store for me, and I left the first class Friday night feeling so much more excitement for the few days to come. I left Sunday evening so sad that it had come to an end. What transpired over the weekend was a beautiful gathering of women, a sisterhood, where we shared, laughed, cried and formed a beautiful sacred where we came together.
