I wondered why I felt sluggish today… tomorrow hosts the first full moon of Spring.
With the moon laying over Libra, there will be moments of balance and mindful resolutions.
Simple practices to keep grounded are supported child’s pose; lay a bolster/pillow under your body while straddling the pillow in child’s pose, turn your head to one side. hold for 5-12 minutes.
Another one is; karnapidasana (ear pressure pose); lye on your back and set up for halasana (plough pose), bend your knees and lightly place on each side of the head while sending the sitting bones up towards the ceiling. Allow for space in the neck and if it hurts, DO NOT do it. Hold for 8-16 minutes. When you come out of either or both of these poses please re-ground yourself.
with the polarity of our everyday lives and the Aries Sun pulling for the Libra Moon, allow yourself to expand across this horizon and do not get frustrated with dynamic decisions. You will always have the strength of your breath. The truth will be there.

May we treasure the little things in our lives. I found this collection of perfume bottles in my childhood jewelry box. Coming from a home of collections; I treasure these keepsakes and know they hold my memories, but not my soul. To find clarity we must expand our vision and not squeeze into a tiny perfume bottle. I treasure the view from the outside.

patience with compassion is the theme of this weekend. allowing life to rollover your shoulders and accepting that there is a higher power at work. trying times have entered my life. during this time I am letting go of the control because I can not battle with unreasonable people or circumstances. as a control-freak this is the hardest part.
this morning I practiced the sat-yam around the anahata chakra meditation, I felt compassion fill my heart . compassion for all things in this world and compassion for the immediate people being affected by this trying time. it felt pure and painful at the same time. cleansing a heartache can only be healed with time. let time pass with patience. let time pass with compassion.

to all the loves in my life. know that I love each moment with you.
out of all the “Hallmark” holidays, Valentine’s Day I celebrate and enjoy. this day is a reminder to cherish the one you love and spread unconditional love to all living things. no matter how pure or impure they are living, let them feel a fraction of love day. this week I am teaching a group of primary school students to love themselves, to be kind to their bodies and minds. i encourage crossing your arms over your chest and holding onto opposite shoulders; giving yourself a hug.
take the moment today and every day to love yourself, which will allow you to love others more freely.
