There is a spiritual and psychological concept that says that all human emotions can be distilled down into two base categories – fear or love. Though we can feel quite powerless during this time of immense worldly fears, it is helpful to know that we always have a choice.
The power to respond a certain way is always in our hands. And in this choice lies our true power and freedom.
What are you aligned with – the energy of fear? Or love?
Episode also contains a sweet lil Guided Meditation on Love – use this for casting out fear and re-aligning with feelings of peace, safety and contentment.
I’m back from the dead (of winter)! After a bit of a hiatus I’m excited to share what I’ve been up to and what’s in store for you and Moondance in 2020.
Big themes for this year…ALIGN and HEAL. And it all kicks off with the Spring Equinox (or what I like to call “Nature’s New Year”) in mid-March!
Though the Winter Solstice marks the shortest period of sunlight and the longest period of darkness of the entire year, it has always been a time for celebrating LIGHT.
That’s right, from this point forward the days get longer and the nights get shorter.
The only rules for celebrating this festive time? Conjure up some warmth and light!
Midwesterners (or anyone who’s ever lived in or visited a cold climate) – this one’s for you!
Hygge experts agree, hygge is less of an easily definable concept and more of a feeling, perhaps even an emotion. I like to think of it as “the art of coziness.”
This is the stuff that’s good for the soul.
What if it doesn’t have to be the end of the magic? What if adulthood isn’t a curse that casts out all feelings of whimsy and wonder? What if there’s a way to still experience the childlike wonder of the holidays even as a – gasp! – mature adult.
Learn to slow down and listen to your soul as a path back to the magic of the holiday season.
Calendar calendar on the wall, who’s the dreariest of them all?
Although November arrives in one pretty ugly package, it comes bearing some vitally important gifts.
So no matter what your fall season looks like right now, let’s explore this magic that exists just below the surface.
The Staycation feels like a lost and forgotten art. Gobbled up by our go-go-go culture, we seem to apply the busyness mentality of “doing” to our vacations, weekends, days off and downtime.
So here’s the list we all need instead: 8 Excellent Ways to Do (Almost) Nothing.
There is something magical about fall: the crispness, the crunchiness, yes – the pumpkin-spice everything-ness. And the colors. OH the colors.
Aside from the ciders and the bonfires and the scarves, there’s something else I’ve always loved about fall. It’s the FEELING of fall.
This is a season that asks us to do what is often the hardest thing to do: Slow Down + Rest.
Confused about September’s hot/cold – summer/fall indecisiveness? Turns out, it can be categorized as it’s own separate season w/an agenda all it’s own.
Seeming to do whatever it darn well pleases, September can represent the wild soul that lives inside each and every one of us.
The part that is uniquely you, won’t be boxed in – and knows exactly what you need to do to make yourself utterly, joyfully, amazingly happy.
Does the idea of meditating make you laugh – or scream, or cry, or want to run away? Is it a practice in finding inner peace, or just a practice in pure frustration? For a long time, I felt the same way.
This episode is about my own personal journey from hating meditation to understanding how to make it work for me. And if you’ve got a busy mind or a painful body, I think you’ll be able to relate.
