Hello Full Moon & Friends

A lot is happening in the sky lately, and the energy will be felt for days/weeks/ months to come. The current cosmic dynamics can feel like watching an episode of your favourite telenovela – intense and complicated . The July Full Moon in Aquarius is the most important full moon of 2018 as it also takes place on a full lunar eclipse, the longest one of this century. The combination Full Moon+ Full Lunar Eclipse + Mars & Mercury in retrograde can sound scary. Fear not, the World is not going to collapse. But your world is likely to change . Over the next few days/weeks, we may feel very impulsive. We may feel compelled to make drastic changes in our lives, from ending relationships to changing careers to even moving to another city! It is normal, as the Full Moon invites us to really reflect on what it is that we do not want in our lives anymore – be it people, habits or beliefs—and let it all go, for good . However, despite …

– When the Heart Speaks

Listening to the heart. Shutting off the mind. Easier said than done, right? We’re often told to trust our brains, that following our hearts make us weak. To me, it is the opposite. It takes great courage to not only hear what your heart has to say to you, but even more to actively listen and start a conversation with it . Your heart does not protect itself against fear or build walls to keep others at bay. The mind does that. And it is very good at it, because we’ve trained it for so long . So, what happens when we open our heart and listen to what it has to say? We do things that seem crazy to others. We tell the person we love that we love them, even if we know they may not love us back. We quit (meaningless) jobs without a plan B, because we know we’re worth more than a paycheck and a rude boss. We pack everything up and go live in another continent, with only hope …

– All The Feels

. Are you, too, feeling like you’re about to explode and you don’t really understand why? Fear not, the answer is in the stars! (And the Moon…and the whole cosmos, actually!) . The energies are currently extremely powerful, between the last New Moon & Solar Eclipse and the Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse coming up at the end of the month. So if you’re usually sensitive to the cosmic energies, it is normal to feel everything 100000x stronger right now . We’re intensely pushed to release everything that doesn’t belong in our lives anymore, to prepare us for the second half of this transformational year. And this purging journey is not meant to be particularly pretty. So be gentle with yourself. Do what feels right for you. Don’t feel bad or guilty if you have to cancel dinner plans or if you don’t want to speak with anybody. Sleep for 12 hours if your body needs it. Cry, scream, cry and repeat, if this is how you want to express your emotions. Listen to yourself, …

– Express your Joy

. I don’t know about you but every time I look happy or express my joy (which is roughly every 10 mins 😅), the people around me usually look at me suspiciously and ask “what is wrong with you?” . How many times have you been asked “what is right with you?”. Me, never. Which is a shame. I think this question would serve us and the world better . That doesn’t stop me from expressing myself the way I want. I dance, I sing, I scream, I write, I laugh. I celebrate all that is right with me. All that is wrong, too. I just choose to express it all with joy. It looks better on me ☀️☀️☀️   On the Side: Katrina and the Waves – Walking on Sunshine

– Trust the Process

. How easy is it to let your worries go and just trust? Not so much, right? But, believe me, when you do, it will all make sense. . Every event that happens, every person that we meet, are here to make us stronger and to make our soul grow. We are here to learn. Our soul chose what it wanted to experience in this lifetime before incarnating here. Nothing that happens is random . Actually, nothing just “happens” to us. We all create it. 💫🙏 __ You can also follow me on @suryya_holistic and @suryyaholistic __   On the Side: Ella Fitzgerald – Somewhere Over the Rainbow

– I feel it Coming

Change is scary We think it is easier to hold on Hold on tight We think we can avoid it But It usually comes unannounced and like a tornado, can destroy everything All the certainties All the expectations It can destroy everything Everything but you . Change is unavoidable You may lose everything you’ve ever known Everything but yourself . You can choose to let go Accept to press the reset button Plant a new seed, and just watch it grow .

– HELLO NEW MOON | July 13

  I usually start feeling the effects of a new/full moon at least three days before they kick in. This time is no exception. . The July New Moon in Cancer promises to be powerful – I know it seems that this is the case for all the moons lately, but.. – as it marks the beginning of a great eclipse session. Despite the emotional turmoil, it has our best interests at heart; It invites transformation into our lives and pushes us to (FINALLY!) embrace our own power. . So what to do if, like me, you strongly feel the Moon energies? My answer : DO nothing. Retreat into your shell. Take this time to dive deep into yourself. Deeper than ever before. Take a pilgrimage to your heart and soul. Look within yourself. Confront your fears; look at the them in the eyes and smile. Stand still. Feel yourself breathe . Allow your emotions to take their rightful place. Release everything that does not belong in your life anymore. Cry, if you need to. …

– Re-aligning with Nature and the Self

-Nature is not a place to visit. It is home. Gary Snyder   When I was a kid, I used to spend a lot of time helping my grand-mother in her immense garden; planting seeds, watering flowers, picking up mushrooms. I would also feed the ducks and the hens, gather the laid eggs in the morning, and pretend to clean the barn. In her garden, there was an oak tree. I was often the only kid at her house, so I would sit down in the garden and spend hours talking to that tree, imagining it was a human being. For a long time, that tree was my best friend. Growing up, I lost touch with nature and I did not even enjoy leaving my busy city to spend time in the countryside. I could feel that something was missing in my life, but I never really took the time to connect the dots. I recently had the chance to take part in a Bio-empathy course, i.e. 4 days away from the chaotic city I …
