Always be the best person you can be. Be kind even when you’re tired. Be understanding even when you’re angry. Do more than you’re asked, and don’t ask for anything in return. Don’t silently expect anything either. Listen when someone talks, and really listen too, stop just thinking of how you’ll reply. Tell people that you love them and that you appreciate them. Go out of your way to do things for people. Be the greatest person you can possibly be and when you mess up, make up for it in the next moment or minute or day. One thing you should never do? Never spend your time trying to prove to anybody that you’re great, your actions will speak for themselves and we only have limited time on this earth, don’t waste it. If someone doesn’t see your light, don’t worry. Like moths, good people are attracted to flame and to light, and they will come
More often than not it’s the fear of failure that blocks your dreams. But nothing good ever came from comfort zones. Dare to be brave with your life. Live a little. Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of the potential crash. Failure is part of the process to reaching your goals, and fearlessness is chasing your dreams in spite of all those things that scare you to death. And I mean; even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward, right? So tell yourself that you can and you should. And if you are brave enough to try – you will.
New Moons represent the start of a new cycle and happens when the sun and the moon meet at the exact same point of the zodiac. Today’s new moon is in the moons own home sign; Cancer ♋ Cancer is also considered one of the Zodiac’s Cardinal signs and as such it is associated with initiating. In other words, it’s time to set your intentions and take a leap forward in your personal growth and evolution.
This lunar cycle will luckily be more quiet and peaceful than the previous ones. Being the sign of nurturing, family and domestic life, watery Cancer is all about emotional connection and security. With all the retrograding planets, as well as some rather challenging moon cycles the last couple of months, it has felt nothing short of overwhelming for many of us, but this cancerian new moon – as well as the month ahead – is simply about accepting and loving yourself where you are. Use this new moon to take time and create a safe space for you to be vulnerable. Cancer being a highly emotional sign may cause deep wounds from within to surface, but see if you can allow your emotions to rise as they may and let your main focus be to love and accept yourself just as you are. Know that you are perfectly loveable as you are. Trust that acceptance and surrender are the best tools to let go of old wounds and bring more love in to your life. Cancer is connected to your heart center and heart chakra so bring in the intention of vulnerability and emotional release, focus on those deep heart opening back bends and send your self and others some extra love in your yoga and meditation practice this month. And cancer being a water sign, see if you can make use of the water element for cleansing on every level you can think of. Take a nourishing bath, swim in the sea or dance in the rain. It is likely to stir feelings of calmness and peace as well as joy and bliss. Last but not least, use this new moon to let go of everything and everyone that no longer serves you and get clear about what and who you want in your life. Listen to and trust your inner guidance. Get out of your head and in to your body. Tune in to that inner voice and make decisions from your heart, it will not lead you wrong ♡
Teaching yoga is all about being of service, and if you’ve been practicing yoga for a while, you may have heard about the concept of seva – selfless service. In practicing seva, you are devoting yourself to others, helping those around you. If you are not sure where to start, look within to see what life experiences and gifts you can bring to the table. You may find that your own wounds and challenges can be of assistance here, for where you have been hurt, you also become more understanding and open. Regardless of what you choose to do, the most important contribution you can make is to show up every day from a place of compassion and love. Choose to use your life’s energy to make the path easier for others, and peace, happiness and goodwill for all isn’t just possible… it’s inevitable ♡
