From the Trump results, to the death of Cohen and the largest and brightest Super Moon since 1948 that relates to Shiva 'The Great Destroyer', WOW!!! This is a very 'F***ing' powerful week!!!!!!! ...

Finding Stability Amidst the Fluctuation

This week, I had it in mind to follow up from looking at Shakti last week to look at Shiva in our yoga practice and studies, not knowing the connection that this week was having with Shiva himself - (yet another syncronicity, call it what you like). However, it's blooming marvellous how life presents itself. So from being sent inspiring new videos to astrology readings, to saying farewell to yet more adventurers,fighting and friends, to finally finding clarity...  I share with you my new insights this week and hope you too develop understanding as to why your week might seem pretty fluctuating. Read on and you may find this weeks blog helps motivate you in a positive and uplifting manner - giving you the power to happily find your use of the 'F' word!

The recent eclipses have been causing confusion and since september it is said that the power of their shadows (we all carry) have agitated and stirred up shifts of karma in the World, where we are karmically connected together. It is said, that when a serpent raises its head and tail, it becomes stronger and is felt that as instability is burnt, it can be a great turning point of growth and how truth may then be revealed.

Truth is sometimes not the clarity that we seek, yet as this eclipse is leading the planet it is Kala Sarpa Yoga that is inflamed... and it is said that this has expansive potential and growth. It can enhance health and improve routines spiritually, the area of the sky is known for its fiery disposition and connected with Kundalini energy... the Naga serpents and its deity... 'one footed coat', 'one footed unborn' - a tantric form of the Lord Shiva. 'Tapas' is associated with this posture. Doing the work that is necessary, focus! Access what is needed in life and what is not - remember that Mercury is in retrograde. The desire to move forward in life. Use the momentum and let go, and look forward to increased possibility!!!!!! This is an opportunity to create boundaries and clarity in a earth sense that remove us from a state of perpetual giving or dissolving and knowing how to remove yourself from it - a balance between the spirit and the material world. In between that sits, arja escapada (one footed shiva) suffering and spiritually making a sacrifice and speaks of a point where you are waiting for something to change, loosing a sense of who we are and where we belong and loosing a sense of our boundaries. Fascinating!!!!!!!!!!!! 

The burning fire of Tapas, the need to be removed from the world, needs to be balanced to create safety and ownership - the snake that dwelves deep within us holds the wisdom, so no longer give away this, connect and find security!!! Darkness, fear and shame, egotism - the shadows in all of us!!! Take the energy of this lunar light and shine it in these shadow realms, the place of ignorance, find compassion space and for healing, do not suppress the emotions. Action needs to be fired and cut through to give clarity. This brings creativity by channeling these feelings in to your art of living... do not fall in to despair or to feeling powerless. Use this!!!! It is about fighting, putting in extra energy to come out of hard times, that true change with deep roots that can not be broken down, that patiently and strategically feel good and will grow like a tree are here, now. It is a creative time to come back to who you are as a human being!!!!!!

STAND UP AND FIGHT - DO NOT DESPAIR!!!! THE STRUGGLE OF LIFE, IS PART OF THE NATURAL CYCLE OF GROWTH. TRUE AUTHENTIC CHANGE COMES STEP BY STEP - IN TIME - THE PLACE OF TRUE FREEDOM - THE ATMA. A SPACE OF VALUE THAT ADDS VALUE TO OUR LIVES. STEP IN AND LET IT SHINE. 

BE PATIENT. THIS IS FERTILE GROUND FOR INSPIRATION.

BUT... FIGHT FOR IT. OWN IT. ACTION IT. DONT LET THIS BE TAKEN AWAY. IT IS VOLATILE, SO BE SAFE. THE EXTERNAL FIRE AND THE INNER FIRE. BE KIND. BE WISE. 

This video sums it all up for me... 

'Be the change you want to see in the world' says Ghandi.

All we do is hideaway!!! STEP IN TO THE FIRE.

Tantra is about doing a whole lot of things that scare you most. But designed to hold you in that, so that you can feel more open and free. We are given the opportunity to face our deepest fears, whilst being held. It creates a safe space where you can finally pull those skeletons out of the closet and let them be seen. Where you can finally speak the words you’ve feared to speak, and simply be heard. Where you can express those desires you long ago buried, and find yourself accepted.

We all long for this freedom.

It’s not the freedom that needs to rebel against anything, but a freedom to simply be yourself—uncensored and unashamed.

Explore life's deepest questions with Sadhguru - yogi, mystic and visionary. Sadhguru’s insights into the mechanisms of life are an outcome of his profound experience of the Self, and serve as a guide to exploring the deeper dimensions of life. His life and work serve as reminders that the inner science of yoga is not esoteric philosophy from an outdated past, but is absolutely relevant and applicable to our lives today.

In the ashes of our broken dreams, we've lost sight of our goals. Rise, rise!!!!

This epic supermoon, known in Vedic Astrology as the Full Moon of Kartika Purnima, promises to incinerate the shadows of fear and confusion, shining its super-charged light into the darkest corners of our psyche. Venerated in India as the day when Lord Shiva, the destroyer, slayed the fierce demon Tripurasura, this Full Moon has the power to purify our souls and inspire unprecedented levels of creativity.

Purva Bhadrapa is a tantric form of Lord Shiva called Aja Ekapada (also known as the fire serpent, or the one-footed goat). This deity is connected to the mysterious subterranean naga snakes who sit coiled at the root chakra deep under the earth. Naga snakes are ancient earth spirits who slither through subtle realms and awaken within us the appetite to live, as well as the detachment of spiritual wisdom. The naga snakes are the kundalini shakti that supports and protects all life on this planet.

The Ekapada symbolizes, the saguna of a directionless pole spinning on its own axis – the ever changing time and cosmic drama.

This is a mantra for the devotion of Shiva.

„The power of this sound and the capability of this sound to liberate a being from one dimension of entanglement and move him to a different state of freedom is something phenomenal, especially because everything that we have done here is engineered around this particular reverberation.” – Sadhguru’s quote.

Lord Shiva (in Sanskrit signifies Auspicious One) or meaning directly: „who promises you bliss”. He is worshiped as the paramount lord in Shaivism and He represents the Consciousness of Infinite Goodness.

He forms the part of the Trimurti (Trinity), the other being Lord Brahma, the creator and Lord Vishnu, the preserver. Lord Shiva is known for the complexity of his nature, picturing contradictory qualities.

It is also said that Lord Shiva represents the threefold qualities of nature: creation, preservation and destruction, although preservation is usually attributed to Lord Vishnu.

Lord Shiva is called The Great Destroyer, because by transforming our reality each moment, He destroys what was – to create what is.

The most auspicious thing that can happen to you is to realize yourself, is to reach the highest within yourself.

 

Light cannot prevail until the darkness has been unveiled.

Let the grief and anger rise to the surface and burn away !! 

Like a phoenix, we can emerge from the ashes with a new awareness of personal power and a clean emotional slate.

BREATHE ME!!!! Pranayama, Shiva Poses and sweat will pour this night!!!! Be kind, be fiery, be what you wish, just for heavens sake BE THE YOU THAT ARRIVES WITH ALL ITS DEMONS - BE YOU!!!!!!! SET FREE THE FIRE AND BURN AWAY THE FEARS, ANGER, GRIEF.... come let the embers ignite a revolution for the soul!

TRUE LOVE IS SPACE & THE 'F' WORD!
