Moon stories

There are so many cycles in our lives. They all affect us in some way. They all are important and magnificent. They make us to appreciate, acknowledge, understand and accept the concept and rhythm of life. There are inner and outer cycles. There are moon stories...too.

I have been focusing on restoring my health in balance for few months now. I have started to follow my feminine cycles by choosing foods, forms of exercises, tasks and activities which provide me a nourishment I need at each point in my cycle. I have never put much attention to it until my body gave me a 'wake up' call. I am so grateful for this. I feel much more connected with myself and my body. I feel much more loved and happier.

Living and following my natural cycles mean listening to my body messages, accept natural changes, go with my pace and nourish myself in every aspect of my being.

'Moon stories' represents changes which I have been through recently. It has been exciting and extremely positive journey of reconnecting with my body.

Do you have your own moon stories?

Sunday walk

Hello gorgeous souls. Today is the day when everything seems to be in perfect alignment and synchronized. From one point of view nothing really happened but at the same time I feel so grateful to life. It has been snowing (I was waiting for snow so long), I started to knit washclothes, had a walk, I have been painting moons, looking at sleepy cat on the sofa, briefly saw my friend and all is well. There is no rush, just trying to remember to go with my pace, my flow and I feel happy and I feel grateful.

Loch Lomond series I

I visited few galleries and saw few exhibitions last weekend with my friend. Seeing other people work is not only inspiring but very often is a sacred moment between the viewer and the artist and his or her work. Moment when visually and emotionally wordless connection begins, we step into somebody's world, perception and feelings.  I perceive most of the works emotionally, whilst my friend perceives art works through shapes, configurations of colours and forms. Art language has got many dimensions and meanings.

My gratitude list:
watercolour Loch Lomond series
mountains covered with snow
sunday walk
green veg and juices
new sleep routine
rebuilding relationship with my body
watching 'Wild'
moments of love
 quotes 'Struggle is a movement' and 'nothing is lost, only changed'

My word

Happy New Year, dear ones. My body is taking time to heal and rest. I am not trying to resist it anymore. I am trying to get deeper and feel grateful for it. Feel grateful for sleep, listening to my needs, cold press juices, time which universe sent me to rest, kale soups, rain and wind outside, mornings with yoga and evenings with meditation, reading 'Wild and Precious' and 'Woman Code'. I finished Leonie Dawson workbook for 2015. All dreams and goals are set up for next 12 months and my word for this year has been chosen as well. My word is: slow. Slowly following my path, without pressure, rushing and expectations. We do the best we can most of the time and we do not have to accomplish anything to love ourselves and others.

Be still

Hello gorgeous souls. I hope you all had a nice Christmas. I have been off work for a week now but I have been keeping myself quite busy. Until my body forced me to take time to rest and kept me in bed. I understood that I just needed to be finally still, not running around, rushing and catching up but just stay still for a bit. So I did stayed in bed, surrounded by hot water bottles and aromatherapy oils. Suddenly I appreciate that stillness which I have avoided for a long time. It was so good to simply read a book and take a nap. It was good to go with a flow, accept how I felt and what I needed.

My first wreath. It is fun to make things with using seasonal abundance of nature.
