April 25th brought us both a full moon and lunar eclipse. A powerful time.
Lunar eclipse symbolizes the ending of a chapter, a time of letting go, surrendering. This process can leave us feeling vulnerable.
We've spent the past few weeks in my classes focusing on the anahata chakra, the heart chakra. Breaking it open as the snow melts and we find renewed creativity and growth. Then deep twists to cleanse, clear out, create a new space for us to move into where that renewed growth and creativity can thrive.
Now we will surrender to that opening and clearing to allow for deep transformation and reclaiming our power.
Tap into the manipura chakra, the third chakra, the "powerhouse". This chakra represents our sense of self in relation to the world. Find your strength and power here. This allows you to be vulnerable. To be present in your vulnerability, and through it find inner strength.
With inner strength, we can allow ourselves to feel the full spectrum of our human experience.
In moments of personal upheaval, instead of closing in, sing it!
In moments of self-doubt, instead of keeping silent, tell it!
In moments of vulnerability, instead of feigning strength, let yourself be seen!
Let yourself be seen, truly seen.
Love with your whole heart.
Practice gratitude and joy,
And believe that YOU are enough.
