My blogging friend Val Erde, who lives in Wales and writes the Absurd Old Bird blog, has given us bloggers permission to use this beautiful painting of hers.
Thank you Val :-).
New Moon today.
To meditate at the new moon can be very powerful as it’s a time of fertile energy, and the best time to “sow your seeds of intention,” our yoga teacher explained this morning.
Things will come to us at this time, but we have to allow them
She told us about one of the students XY in the Yoga Center who was having trouble getting pregnant.
Teacher: Where do you work?
Student XY: Hollywood. As a Set designer.
Teacher: Do you work a regular 5 day work week?
Student XY: No. I usually work 6 days a week, 12 hour days.
Teacher: Do you eat proper meals?
Student XY: Junk food mainly, which I usually eat in the car while rushing about.
Teacher: Do you ever rest?
Student XY: No time for resting. On my day off I’ve got to clean house, do laundry, run errands…
XY took a leave from work, rested, ate well, looked after herself for the first time in years, saw a Naturopath who also did Acupuncture, and about 15 months later gave birth to twin girls, who are now almost one.
I don’t want to get pregnant – good lord – but even though I eat a healthy diet, do yoga, see a Naturopath, and get regular Acupuncture treatments, if I want to feel grounded, and be open to receive my gifts, I too need to slow down.
