Mercury in Retrograde – time for reflection

Mercury in Retrograde – time for reflection

In the next three weeks, you’ll be receiving inner messages around the past. Possibly events which need to be let go of; things which you thought you had released. Those things and events may always be present for you on a subconscious level and around mercury in retrograde, they are highlighted. They come to the fore, presenting themselves to you so that you can deal with them. Dealing with them may mean the simple acknowledgment that you need to work on the issue. It may be the chance for you to go deeper within and solve challenges which have become deep-seated. Take some time out from your everyday in the next three weeks and go within, realise your insights and let go of what you don’t need. Communication is crucial at this time. Listen more....

Endings… and new beginnings

Endings… and new beginnings

It is the time of Beltane. This is the peak of Spring and the beginning of Summer. A time when the Earth’s energies are at their strongest and YES I am feeling it. Are you? I have been doing a lot of new creation around my business and bringing new things in, which means allowing things to go. I am ending my time with the wonderful Right Brain Business Plan cohort circle by the fabulous Jennifer Lee. This blog post is an acknowledgement to my time over the last 3 years within this amazing circle, what I have learnt, how my business has progressed and acknowledging my need to move inward to create. I’ll start with this last point. I am ending my time within the cohort circle as I am being more inward. I am writing a book on life-coaching, with emphasis...

Why Retreat?

Why Retreat?

As I went deeper into knowing myself; healing from emotional and physical ‘stuff’ and embracing all that life is about; I realised that time AWAY from distractions is sometimes what the soul really needs to get to the root of the issues.   It is great and necessary to have some kind of time like this in your everyday. Maybe you have a daily inner connection practice, such as meditation, prayer, art or writing. However the strength and depth which you receive by going somewhere different for real deep connection, is on another level. You receive insights which are so amazing and on a retreat you have a wonderful group of loving people around you, who all want the best for you. It is like a mini or major vacation in a weekend AND with more...

Letters to My Soul

Letters to My Soul

UPDATE to this – the sign-up page for Letters to my Soul: http://anamaya.net/letterstomysoul   I am undertaking a challenge to write a letter to my soul every day for a year.   Connecting with my soul on a deeper level leads me to realise what I want, what I desire, what I need. I wish to come closer and closer to that vision and I am using these letters as a path to this bigger vision of my life.   As with all things, a bit of accountability can help   I would like to invite you with me on this journey for a year. Yes, deep breath, A YEAR! We will have the time and space to discover, re-discover, explore and experience our soul’s journey on a deeper level.   The ‘letters to my soul’ journey will start on 12th...

Ground connection

Ground connection

As I watch Samson today, I remember Kruger last year. She had begun to slow down during the summer, ready for her spirit passing in October. She didn’t eat properly, was very slow in her pace and conduct and I see Sammy doing the same.   I took extra time today to connect more with him. I had an afternoon nap (what a pleasure) and could hear Sammy purring and loving the fact that a human can sleep during the day too   I sat by him as he grounded to the earth and enjoyed the grass – I received some extra grounding too!   These lovely moments have reminded me to stay very present today. To allow in what will, and to be in the NOW. It has been wonderful and immensely refreshing.   I am part of a 108 pilgrimage group which my lovely...

Enchanted

Enchanted

I have started a 108 day pilgrimage with the lovely Vanessa Sage and this morning I was ‘enchanted’ by turmeric and wanted to share with you all.   I bought some turmeric root over the weekend to add to my daily breakfast juice – I do apple, orange, beetroot, spinach, ginger, berries, sometimes carrot and sometimes coriander. I usually add turmeric in powder form, with some powdered greens (spirulina, nettle leaf, wheatgrass plus others).   It was such a delight to add the turmeric fresh into the blender this morning. It stained my fingers and the chopping board yellow, became translucent blue when in the juice and was ‘enchanting’. I loved this deeper connection with the herb and it made me remember what amazing antioxidant...

A letting go story…

A letting go story…

Yesterday I went down to the sea and let go…. The last few times I have cut my hair, I have done it with letting go in my mind and also taken the hair from the hairdressers with me. I have then released the hair and anything ‘stuck’ to it into the sea. By ‘stuck to it’ I mean the energy around things which may have been present – situations, emotions, anything not for my highest good. Letting go on such a deep level feels GOOD. I let go a lot – on the full moon, in meditation. I try not to hold onto things which bring me down and hold me back. I like to feel fresh and new and ready to embrace life whenever I can. So… when for the last few weeks I started to feel heavy, burdened, burnt out and not at all myself – I...
