Progressive Renaissance

  I will admit, I have been a bit reluctant crafting wistful thoughts and sharing them, as there has been a looming lack of creativity… this during a time where we have moments of isolation to “work on ourselves.” However, out of this involuntary reflection, I have been developing allowance of just letting things be. That freedom from expectation opened the thought floodgates, “After all of this, as the beginning of something inevitably has an end… how will we all be as a humanity? Will we go back to how we were living with an altered process of doing things? Will we remember how to do the ‘normal’ things? Will we learn to maintain kindness? Will we utilize the lessons learned during this time to infer how we communicate and treat others? Will ‘we’ ever be we again?”
 
       Thoughts transformed into a considerative (yes, I make up words) journey of how humanitarianism has gone through cycles of advancement – or supposedly. Whenever we are shocked to our core, it seems that some level of information purports our progress. I am hoping that this disheartening time will leads us into a Progressive Renaissance so we can reevaluate our way of living and truly support the well-being of the human existence.  I find the answer to all the questions above should be a resounding yes, with the understanding that this will forever shape our need to be progressive with the utmost compassion, truth, strength, encouragement, humility, and compromise. 
     
       As renaissances takes a significant period of time leading towards recognition and social change, I understand that not everyone will be along for the ride… It is important to have serious conversations with those who see no other way than assembling for the immediacy and convenience of power rather than the counterculture of progression and champion open lines of respectful free-thinking. Subjectively, I think it is as simple as the world unifying as a people who have all been impacted by a significant experience, and as such, we should all cultivate acceptance and evolutionary learning. Namaste.

Winter Solstice Solitude

One of the most revered times of the year for peace and internal solace, the Winter Solstice is an interlude to elevate the self through practices of solitude and reflection. A rather colder period of time on the East coast, we turn to methods of increasing warmth and nurturing the body with earthly foods and brews. Finding the beauty and necessity in all seasons, the Winter Solstice reminds us of the need for life to be still, ruminate on the seeds planted, and prepare for their impending fruition. We amplify our intentions and focus on our goals for the future, giving them the positive energy and focus they require to manifest.
     Though personal contributions to wellness are encouraged throughout the year, emphasis is even more evident during this time as we are challenged with the elements (being cognizant of geography). The beauty of the snow covered trees and crispness of the air prompt our internal constitutions to complement extra care and attention to our bodies, minds…

Samhain Celebrations

Somewhere between the equidistance of the Autumnal Equinox and the Winter Solstice we embrace the enchanting Samhain. A time of mystery and lore in the most wonderfully bewitching of ways, spirits are free to express themselves in any composite or ethereal medium. It is almost expected that norms are purposefully disregarded and restrictions are recognized as never having a place in existence. For a moment in time, released from novelty and sometimes in spite of it, freedom of expression comes in full force in all shapes and practices.
Since we are able to engage our full expression, this time also allows us to tap into our heightened awareness powers. Our innate intuition kicks into high gear and we can perceive and discern versatile facets of our Self-discovery and therefore journey. We are able to prioritize our personal needs and create space, releasing any attachments that no longer serve us. This perpetuates the enhancement of the higher Self facilitating our autonomy and even…

Breathing into the space You Create

It was once said, “A yogi measures the span of life by the number of breaths, not by the number of years...” ~ Swami Sivananda. Time seems to have an opportune way of letting us know that relationships and circumstances tend to be temporary and at the peak of its chaotic perfection in the moment. But... the Universe has an auspicious way of reminding us that what we are going through, what we are doing, and who we meet along the way is part of plan. I contemplate often on the current state (avastha) of existence, and wonder if everything we say and do is recorded in some cosmic ledger and balanced out with its appropriate counterpart to ensure we are in harmony with the Universe. And the tabulation of every, thought, word, action, habit is measured and vetted throughout the lifetime to allow the vessel to be at its optimal level.
Perhaps, I might be leaning into it just a bit much, because it could also be as simple as, we are here, then we are not. And in choosing to abide to the s…
