Whenever my mood gets a bit down, I can always raise my energy by spending time outside in nature. This morning was a chilly, grey day, but I put on a warm scarf and jacket and went outside for a walk. The crisp winter air was invigorating and cleansing. Getting outside is the quickest way for me to get out of my own head and into the present moment, enjoying the presence of nature and her energies. Afterwards, I went to yoga class with my favorite teacher, John. He was a huge source of inspiration for me when I began to get serious about my yoga practice. He is a great person to be around. He is always happy, kind, and not to mention an amazing teacher. I owe a lot to him, but as he always says, “the greatest teacher is yourself.”
I felt much love today. John and another one of my yoga buddies gave me hugs, wishing me well for my upcoming trip. I am getting super excited, but I want to remain in the present. I want to go into this experience with no expectations, but only a wide open heart. I do not want to make plans. I want to be guided. I trust!
Also, I was inspired by a post by Mystic Medusa, about the 2012 Cardinal Cross, an important astrological aspect that she refers to as the Zap Zone. In my own words, the Cardinal Cross is when the planet Uranus in Aries will form a square to Pluto in Capricorn, which pretty much means drastic changes, the end of old paradigms, and a call for us to evolve, innovate, and thrive. Mystic said it best, “Stay stuck and you’re fucked.” This year will be a time of change and the end of the world as we presently know it, which means that we have the power to co-create our own new reality. Astrology is one of the tools that I use for self-inquiry and expansion. I can feel these heightening energies manifesting in my own life. I don’t want to be stuck. Rather, I am striving to be mindful in each moment, and analyze the outmoded, delusional thought patterns which no longer serve my highest purpose. I want to transform into the beautiful, intelligent, loving, kind, and confident goddess that I truly am. I imagine myself living fully and authentically every day, shining, glowing, sparkling, spreading my light. I am ready to release the fearful, egotistical thoughts that have held me back. I strive to step into my power, pursuing radical self love, expression, and growth. This is the Now Age. This is it. My horoscope says, “Think big or don’t think at all.”
I am going for it. Work this hard.
Light and Love,
