Present of Presence
It's something that I try to practice what I preach. Because otherwise, if I teach but don't follow through with the practices myself, then I am not living authentically in the world. That's my major goal and why I'm in the trainings that I am, to be able to live in a good way with the world around me and to share the blessings of these teachings with those that are open to learning. Much of December has been about me unplugging, which is what we are supposed to be doing in the Winter! I admittedly have been taking it easy with clients, events, and have been recharging more.
It is with much gratitude that I give thanks for the richness of the communities in the surrounding DC areas. I have seen and witnessed a lot of transformation in this turbulent time, and it has left me with inspiration for what is going on around me. Most of us are beginning to come out of the holiday season intact, while others might be crawling out with a sense of something missing. Where ever you are in your process, I honor that in you. There are many events going on for the rest of this week in December, including dusting off the old version of yourself and starting off the New Year with the New Years Purification Ritual (also see below). I have also discovered 5Rhythms in the DC area! Embodying is a great way to flow through the different layers of music and come home to yourself. Especially great for those that want to dance off some of those holiday pounds we put on the past few weeks ;)
A lot of people have been going through a bumpy ride, but I suspect that it's because of the Super Moon and Mercury Retrograde that were happening astrologically at the beginning of the month. That's when a lot of things went sideways. With those themes, there is a deep undercurrent of change that is happening as we all begin to drift inward to our own inner landscapes. Winter is supposed to be a time of personal self-reflection. According to the Power Path forecast, some of those themes help support our unplugging so that we can receive updates. It's like our body is a computer, and very similar to receiving upgrades, the computer slows down its processing speed as it receives the updates. The computer becomes slower until you finally reboot it. Have you done your rebooting this month?
