Blessings to you all for 2018 from Juma Health & Yoga
Welcome to what is going to be a great year! However this year has started for you know that the Universe is for You! Everything about our universe is designed to support us all - the air we breath, the support of our skeletal system, the systems in place in our communities, our inner guidance, the food we eat, the friendships we nourish, the art we explore, our spiritual practices. We are supported, we are blessed.
So what’s happening for you in 2018? What is life looking like for 2018 so far? Have you created an intention for the year? Are you feeling it? Have you taken some time to reflect on 2017? The year that was……… What stood out as a learning experience from the last year. What would you like to pursue in moving forward? What does your heart say?
I love this time of year. The slate is cleared and the energy is with us - we are rested and ready to create. So as you embark on 2018 what are you creating?
We have taken time early this year to feel into what is coming and it is so exciting! As we discussed at our Full Moon session on the 2nd of January, the energy this year is amplified - we are going to experience a creative year times two! So exciting! This is a powerful time - it’s a time to cleanse, renew and rewire to bring in new patterns for this brand new year. Creating rituals can help because they speak to our sub-conscious mind and let our body know that certain parts of our lives are over and some parts of our lives are just beginning. Ritual can be such a powerful tool for helping us clear, navigate and direct our lives. Creating ritual can be a simple as a cup of tea in the morning, a meditation before bed, a prayer to your God…….. there are so many ways to partake in ritual. Ritual speaks to us deeply because we assign them meaning! So as we transition from 2017 to 2018 what are you intentionally giving meaning to? What new patterns are you bringing in, what old patterns are you letting go? What intention are you offering to set the tone for your 2018?
And so from a very simple and thoughtful Christmas gift received from a fellow Yogini - it was scrabble letters that say ‘I am’ - a ritual was born. Without even realising I was creating ritual - every time I moved to pass the gift I would add in a word. I am ……………. We get to choose in every single moment what we are - no one else gets to do it to us or for us - we have free choice in what we choose to be. What do you choose? What are you choosing right now? And that changes from moment to moment - doesn't it?
Over the break I got a ‘real’ job. You know like one that starts at a particular time and ends when the boss says you can go home. The kind of job where you are told what to do, how to do it and when you’ve done it wrong. Ha! It’s been a hoot! I have met some of the most humble, kind and ‘salt of the earth’ beings. All doing their best at living their lives. It has been humbling for me to get a ‘real’ job. To do work other than my yoga. But it has also been exciting for me to recognise once again why yoga, meditation and self study are so vital on this journey. What did Socrates suggest all that time ago - ‘The unreflected life is not worth living.’ And who was it that said ‘A change is as good as a holiday!’. So my ‘real’ job finishes in perfect synchronicity with yoga beginning again and I have to say I AM EXCITED!
I am so excited about this year - I jumping out of my skin excited!
