This coming Saturday 31Oct20 is not only Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve, but this moment in time also coincides with a Full Moon – so super powerful!
All Hallow’s Eve, the Eve of All Hallow’s Day or All Saint’s Day. It is said that on this eve the veil between the 2 worlds is thinnest. It is like a portal – a moment in time when we have access to otherworldly wisdom with the support from all our Loved Ones and Ancestors who have passed.
There is a special meaning to this at this very moment in time when the pandemic has put us in a place where the “old normal” is gone, is dead and we find ourselves in the “new normal” – a place that feels very much like an in-between space “in limbo”…
We are called up to let go of the past…letting go…feel into this…let go…it no longer serves us…and being open to whatever there is in this very moment…
None of us know what lies ahead…all we have is this very moment…being open to whatever life brings us…
Each and every one of us is exactly where we need to be. With our heart wide open we are able to let the new in…ready to lead the beautiful life we are meant to live!
Beautiful does not mean that it is all joy and happiness. A life that is beautiful is a full life – being able to live life to the full and be with everything there is! Reaching our full potential….being all we can be…blossoming in our full glory…fulfilling our life purpose …each and every one of us…in our very unique way only we are able to fulfill it…just the way we are meant to…
Our beautiful Mantra we chant in our Sol Yoga Classes at this very moment reflects this heart wish:
Om asatoma satgamaya Take us from the false to the truth
tamasoma jyotirgamaya from darkness to light
mrityorma amritamgamaya from death to eternal life – the bliss of life that is Life itself!
Om Jyoti (Light)
Yes, strange times we currently live in – our “New Normal”. All we can do is be in every given moment and do our very best with whatever arises. Neither of us know what lies ahead.
Yet, naturally the mind boggles. Thoughts coming in unsettling us…uncertainty…feeling in limbo…we are all very much in our heads at the moment…doing our best to find our way in this “New Normal”.
Yesterday was such a glorious Autumn Day! Beautiful Autumn Sunshine – the Autumn Light is just amazing! So, I felt like “getting out of my head” and took myself off for a walk. I feel so blessed living in the countryside – I just have to walk out of the door and I am in Nature! Walking up the hill through a lovely small wood. Stunningly warm Autumn colours everywhere, what Bliss! Apart from blowing away my cobwebs and clearing my head, I find walking always amazingly grounding. Getting in touch with earth again, finding my feet again, standing with both feet in life. And I do tend to get inspirations in Nature too. Yoga is Union, so walking is Yoga too – Union with Nature!
It is so important to ground ourselves at the moment and get back into our body and look after it really well! This is why we are currently focusing on our wonderful Feelgood Flow at our Sol Yoga Classes and moving our body from the inside out. Every single Asana (Pose) in our Flow is a Doorway to the Infinite! We are meeting ourselves on a new level – as the Divine Being we are in Union with the rest of the Universe and all of Creation! Every time we get on our Yoga mat we are healing and nourishing ourselves! Shedding aspects of ourselves that no longer serve us and letting in new Life Force that replenishes us!
I absolutely love our live streamed interactive online Sol Yoga Classes with you all! They really work and the energy is amazing!
I continue to be in awe of our amazing practice: Yoga does Wonders for us all – it keeps us strong, happy & healthy and ready to face whatever Life is presenting us with!
Om Shakti (Life)
