This month marks the first month of our new Season 2. It feels right. It makes sense. We are dying off to the old and creating the inner spaces, the intimate chambers for the birthing forth of something new to come in all of us.
This month will ask you to go actively witness love as well as invoke your womb power.
This month we honor the force of change, INSTABILITY, pain, grief and the capacity we have to hold FIRM amidst change, as well as the capacity to flow with the discomfort. This month is about becoming the LIGHT in the DARK, without shying away from the darkness (the unknown, unconsciousness in our own selves).
This month we say goodbye to the wildness that was 2016, and it deeply asks us to ASK. To ask the question - how can I make 2017 truly a year where I can better express the fullness and wholeness of who I am. On that note, I’ve devoted our focus to manifestation.
This month we call in Shiva. Shiva is all around you. Inside. Outside. Shiva is Pure Presence. Shiva is consciousness itself. When we connect to it, it has the ability to enable a witnessing consciousness that reveals what is real and true, good and holy, alive and pulsing. And as the outside world comes into more and more chaos and collapse, the Shiva practices of stability and silence become more and more imperative.
Late winter/early spring is here. And it’s all about MOVING! Because the underground goddess is longing to SPRING forth. We need to make her channels as clear as possible. That is why this month, and especially in April, we will be moving a little more.
Are you feeling the arrival of spring? I sure am. Just a love-note to let you know - In April, as you may know, we will be doing a simple, loving, healing Ayurvedic cleanse. I even hesitate to use that word because all of the negative connotations. Think of this more as a re-set for your digestive system. The part of you that can digest food, and life, and the past.
A person with good ojas is calm and content, and has both strong immunity and endurance. This is the most important element for most of us to cultivate. After we cleanse, WE REBUILD. And what are we re-building - the Ojas!
This month will be all about your Psycho-Emotional Coverings, or Gunas. Think about them as veils - neither necessarily good nor bad - that cloak the INNATE LUMINOSITY that is our mind.
