Hello <<First Name>> and welcome to my May e-news update.
March and April brought some well-needed family time (piccies below) which gifted lots of precious moments as we created new memories, and some much needed time away from my desk. I'm happy to be back at the helm with a renewed focus following the opportunity for self-reflection and a reality check.
New reflections, new directions
May so far has supported clearing and change - no big surprise from our 5th month of the year - in Numerology the energy of 5 is all about movement - we change - we evolve.
I've implemented a few changes with my Lotus Star work as follows : Mindful Meditation now runs weekly at Aberfoyle Park on Tuesday evenings; Full day workshops are now longer in duration with a new pricing structure and discounted rates for under 18s; Following the huge success of the Crystals/Pendulum and Zentangle® Create-A-Canvas workshops, both will be running again in June; Repeat attendees are now welcome on workshops at a reduced cost; I am now offering my graphic and web design services again - full info will soon be up on the site.
On a personal level; I've started another 66-day challenge to journal (written or visual) and/or meditate daily. Follow my reflections via the Lotus Star : Embrace Life Facebook page and read about the outcome of my last challenge here - learn about how it takes just 66 days to form a new habit - great for achieving any goal!
And so I ask YOU; Have you been making time for reflection so that insights can become clear? When was the last time you had a good clear out? Try letting go of old and outdated possessions, habits, thinking - so that you allow the new space to come in. Today is a good day to make a start - no matter how seemingly small.
"Rest, Stillness, Surrender are much undervalued qualities. Be-ing is the gift of slowing down. It is sitting and breathing, making time count. Be-ing is the gift of savouring, of staying passive and open like a child, and accepting things as they are."
Ruth Ostrow - The Gift
Just breathe. Just be. You're doing great - you always have been ♥ Elizabeth
