Sat Nam Goddesses,
What kind of power do you run on? If you looked at your power source, that which guides you from when you wake up until you sleep…what percentage is higher-powered, self realized and authentic, and what percentage is reaction and rote, or else avoidance of action because of fear or fatigue?
Time to shift gears, ladies! Leo the Lion means finding the courage to challenge the pie chart of your energy source and make it all YOU…all the time. As the eclipse season comes to an end, the road will narrow, and it will be come obvious where and how to spend our time and which projects are meant to be and which are meant to be abandoned. This will happen naturally…instead of fighting Nature, use this moment to get ahead of your life trajectory. Change from going with the flow, to being the flow.
At this moment in the Universe’s expansion, the Sun energy is ripe for harvesting into the container of our lives, our bodies and minds. Part 1 of this series does just that—each posture is a step forward in creating a container and filling it with Ra—the Sun vibration, to fuel us and heal everyone we love, know and encounter.
Part 2 then drips Sunlight of the Spirit into our words and other ways that our energy is communicated to others, so that we never miss an opportunity to channel more JOY into this existence. I have been working with a new daily practice that makes me slow down. It is hard work! But what I’ve been finding is that this slower breathwork I have committed to doing pushes my shadow stuff to the surface—the fact is I am rushing around doing this and that for my children and for the website and for “life” and I am not making space for moments to savor.
So, like you, I am using this Sun energy to heal myself, forgive myself, and shift back into the gear I know and love—where my Higher Power is running the show and I am just carrying out my job (living authentically and heart-centeredly) and doing my best to stay in the Realm of Dharma and bring others with me. And when the Fall comes and the road narrows, I don’t need to scramble to make sense of things, grab at realities that my ego had become attached to, because I have a connection to Source, and to the Sun.
What I have also realized in moving so fast, is that I am afraid of slowing down and letting the creative forces of the Universe flow through me because…what if I get into trouble? The little kid in me that grew up in the 80’s and 90’s is always worried about being creative and self realized—those were not qualities that were celebrated or cultivated in my Piscean coming of age! Giving those reservations and “old tapes” to the Sun energy, neutralizes them, so that I can relax and take it easy.
After all, what is the worst case scenario? I live effortlessly connected to a source greater than me? And I lose the urge to worry about what others think, and I stop asking permission?
Hmmm. That’s just crazy enough to work.
Happy New Moon!
When I begun to study Kundalini Yoga my intention was not to become a great Yogi but to learn something through which I could have my own gear because I did not want an automatic transmission; I wanted a stick shift.- YB
