New Years Day 2017.

New Years Day 2017.

 


Melbourne, Florida. They say that what you do on the first day of the year is what you’ll continue to do throughout the year. Today…I sat facing the ocean…eyes wide shut…heart wide open…wondering if I dodged a bullet or fell victim to my own kindness…something that I am having a hard time answering. The trouble with an open heart is that it breaks…and it breaks often. The good news is…it transforms you. The good news is…I’ll continue to have an open heart…and I won’t build walls…I’ll keep cracking open until all boundaries are shattered…and I will always be kind. I won’t live in the past…I’ll only live now. I’ll keep sitting by the ocean…meditating….healing…opening up and letting go. It’ll take time, the healing part, but I am determined to do so. In the meantime…I’m letting it all go to make room for my wild woman to rise…2017, are you ready for me?

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

PS. I played on the beach…dunk myself in the cold ass ocean…and did some yoga…I think my year is going to be pretty good if it is true what they say…

New Moon Virgo. 

New Moon Virgo.


Me and Hermine…

New Moon in Virgo came yesterday. It came with a hurricane…and a solar eclipse. This one was especially heart opening for me. What do you do when the world is at your feet and you feel it crumbling beneath you? What do you do when what you thought was perfection made it hard to see the forest for the trees?

You set yourself free.

     “The Virgin is an image of purity. Nothing has possessed her. She is attached to nothing, wants nothing, fears nothing. Nothing holds her. She is free, unbound by any earthly drama.

     Yet she is here, on the earth. What does the world offer one who seeks nothing but perfection? What can she do? She waits, aloof as the Madonna. She works on herself. And to pass the time, she helps where she can.” – Steven Forrest from The Inner Sky

New Moon in Leo.

“Les Lis” by Louis Icart

New Moon in Leo.

Been needing a new moon…been waiting on this one. For tonight, while the moon AND sun are in Leo, take time to revisit your personal manifesto. Who are you? What are you here for? NOTHING should be holding you back from being the “YOU” you were meant to be. But I get it…sometimes it isn’t that easy. Sometimes its REALLY hard to do YOU. Sometimes it’s really hard to crack open AND SHINE. But I can assure you…those are just temporary fears. Temporary limiting thoughts. So how do you get passed all that to transcend into YOU…?

Start by writing it down. Write it down again, again, and again. Tap into the essence of the Leo. Let your insides burst with light…burst with fire…for goodness sake, LEO is ruled by the SUN and is a fire sign…shine, shine, shine…

KINDLE the light within you and let it warm you. KINDLE your desires FIRST and then everything else that you do will come from a place of love. Dishes? HA…how about playing with your essential oils first because it makes you happy….and then while you’ve got that smile on your face from wafting some patchouli aroma up your nose…dishes will seem a little less depressing.

Tap into your inner Lioness or Lion and ROAR it out. If you got some negativity to release ROAR it out. You don’t need it anymore…it has already done its job. You’re transcending. Let go of the things you don’t need to make room for what you do need.

Then when you have written it down, loved & loved some more, felt pain & let it go…FIND COURAGE. Because THAT is the hardest part of all. You know what you want….you know what you need….you’ve written it down, you’ve released what you don’t need anymore….NOW TAKE THE COURAGE OF THE LEO TO STEP INTO THE LIGHT. It is your time to shine. Time is NOW.

Love & Moonlight,

PS. I picked this image for personal reasons…I myself have a hard time being the ME I want to be. Les Lis translates to The Lilies…for me this is symbolic in the way that it means purity, modesty, mercy, femininity, and the souls restored innocence.

PSS. I’m currently revising my personal manifesto…completely peppered with femininity.

PSSS. MAKE AN INTENTON TONIGHT….mine is to FIND ME, DO ME, AND BE ME.

 

Full Moon in Leo tonight.. Ganesha Mudra Yoga Meditation for the Full Moon.

Tonight there will be a Full Moon in Leo.

I felt this one coming. I felt the intense build up to this point. Lately I’ve been making peace. Finding grace. Giving grace. I’ve felt a shift in the people around me, felt the shift within me. Practiced silence. Fell in love with the word considerate. Felt my body, mind, and soul plant firmly into the ground. Became grounded.

Fell in love with Ganesha. Practiced Jivamukti. Felt a connection.

Tonight…with the FULL MOON in Leo…think back to your new moon intention. Here was mine. Looking back I have really honored myself. I have felt a great shift in myself. I’ve been practicing yoga more, being mindful of those around me, staying open, giving grace. GIVING GRACE has been my greatest accomplishment thus far this year.

Leo may send you some extra playfulness and creativity your way. Use that to your advantage. If you are feeling super inspired to CREATE and be CREATIVE…make it a FULL MOON ritual. Block off time for yourself…at least 30 minutes to do a ritual FOR YOURSELF. Here are a few examples:

  1. Meditate. Believe it or not…this will set you free. It is proven to reduce stress. Above is a video of a morning yoga meditation I did last Sunday. For my meditation I performed a Ganesha Mudra. Ganesha is a Hindu God…a deity. Best known as the remover of obstacles. He is depicted with an elephant head. A Mudra is a hand gesture that seals or marks an intention…the Ganesha Mudra is practiced to remove obstacles from your path…be it something as simple as removing an unwanted feeling that is holding you down. Let go of those feelings that pin you down. Remove them from your life and set yourself free. Move yourself.
  2. Start a diary. This is another proven way to reduce stress. It is also fun to reflect on paper and then look back at it. Given that MERCURY IS STILL IN RETROGRADE until Monday…now is truly a time to just reflect. No big decisions need to be made. Just jot down how you feel. Write your life. It is yours.
  3. Burning ritual. My ALL TIME favorite. Tonight if you feel like you need to let go of some feelings…write them on a piece of paper and burn them. Remember…Mercury is still in retrograde…so just release some feelings that have built up…burn them and feel relief. No big decisions need to be made…just reflect. (Be safe…if you don’t know how to work with a safe fire…don’t try this.)

 

That is it I suppose…I plan on meditating and doing a burning ritual tonight!!

My Personal Manifesto | The Warm Up | Question One

My Personal Manifesto- The Warm Up.

Question Number One: From HERE 

I imagine myself sitting on the back porch…thinking of the right words to say. How do I really see myself? My lizard brain is being a butt right now. It’s whispering honeyed words of self-doubt in my ear…

ew, I just felt it’s tongue.

Self-doubt is such a blah. I get in moods where I don’t think I’m good enough, or smart enough, or fast enough, or creative enough…and I let that lizard brain get to me sometimes. I want that to stop. I want to take that lizard brain and kick it’s …..tail.

What I really see deep down is a very sensitive, well mannered, intuitive young woman who is begging herself to take that silk scarf from her mouth and tell the world what she is made of…what her mind is made of…her ideas…thoughts…feelings…uh, let’s let her talk now…thank you!

As if that wasn’t me just talking right now…

Okay okay…I’m rolling my eyes at myself.

I am…my own worst enemy. But I’m working on that. HARD. The hardest thing I want to change in my life is that self-doubt and self-sabotage. I don’t like it.

What I do love about myself is that I am very intuitive…I have a pretty good idea of what is happening around me, to me, and to others. I also love that I’m a perpetual learner…and it has served me well. Must be that Virgo Sun in me. I also love that I am creative…at least I tell myself that! (Shut up lizard.) I AM creative. I love to draw, write, paint, take photographs…express myself visually. I am kind, gentle, quite….and I am the best secret keeper. I listen, I give, I share, I love. I’m a best friend. The best mom. A sister. A daughter. I may seem boring, BUT I AM NOT…when you get to know me. I’m an introvert to the max…but I also can get wild and funny. I feel my best when I can make others laugh or get inspired. Ha…Pisces rising! What UP!? I’m also very caring and emotional and I truly do wear my heart on my sleeve. I feel other peoples pain and it makes me sad. I wish sometimes I could be Buddah and EAT up all that pain so you don’t have to feel it. I thank that Pisces in me that gives me compassion..and I thank God. I’m also the HARDEST worker you will ever find. I bust my butt at work and I am ambitious…my Capricorn moon streak…

What I really want is to start answering those life calls.

Oh and I AM THE QUEEN. Boom.

Love & Moon Light,

Kelly
