connection

My friend Nathalie is here in London!

One of my closest friends Nathalie went to Croatia a year ago to follow her heart to create a retreat/home holding embodiment retreats. She ended up traveling to Australia, Spain, Texas, Peru and New York after Croatia 😃

.

She inspires me with her courage and her determination to cope with the lack of routine 😂 I love routines and having a clean and organised home. I couldn’t do what she did for a year, would probably go crazy. She loves routines too so I admire her for what she’s done.
.
She’s staying with me this week then off to Australia to move in with her boyfriend and continue with her projects ❤️
.
I want to share how we met and got close as I’m super grateful to have her in my life. So we met 2-3 years ago at ecstatic dancing, started talking about tantra and I added her as ‘Nathalie Tantra’ on my phone, to this day she’s still Nathalie Tantra on my phone and in my life 🙏🏼
.
We bumped into each other few times at ecstatic dancing and each time I asked her when she is starting her dance group. I was geniune, she’s really good. She got super uncomfortable each time I asked 😃 Anyway we met up for a coffee one day. I felt a strong pull to ask if she wanted to meetup with me and dance every week (we’re not close by this point) she was a bit shocked but said ‘yes’.
.
We started dancing in her kitchen followed by deep conversations and eating on the floor. We laughed, cried, had so much fun, filmed ourselves. Sometimes Adam joined us 🐵 We moved with one another with blindfolds on, learnt to surrender and trust again.
.
During this time we both started training as life coaches (Nov 2016) at the same time in Animas Coaching and now here we are, both graduated in a whole new chapter in our lives.
.
We went to 5rhythms last night and on Sunday we’re going to picnic gathering our coaching school is organising ✨
.
I am grateful to have very few but deep friendships like this one where no matter how far you go without talking for weeks, when you come back together the connection’s always there and deeper.
.
Love you Nathalie so much 💛

🌻☀️🍂❄️ YOUR EMPOWERED CYCLE ❄️🍂☀️🌻

And another offering 😍

.

Amanda and I joined together to create an experience of coming into alignment with your menstrual cycle through awareness and movement 🌹
.
As nature follows the seasons, as does a woman's body. As women, we flow through the seasons. We have a beautiful built in system in our bodies, our menstrual cycle which allows us to experience all 4 seasons and elements within a month. We go through winter, spring, summer and autumn as we bleed and as our bleeding ceases.
.
When you know which season is on its way you get to prepare yourself rather than beig completely confused and aloof about what’s going on in your body.
.
This is a 4 hour immersion starting with a talk/discussion about all 4 seasons and archetypes we embody every month, followed by a guided dance giving you the experience of how these seasons actually feel in your body so when you do experience them another time you can recognise them. Your body will remember once it has the experience ❤️
.
Aligning yourself with your cycle allows you to feel your feminine power and energy more, life starts to flow and happen with more ease and syncronicity ✨

I honour my mum on this day and every day for her love, her courage, her belief in me, her strength and power. I love you mum with all my heart 💛

.

I honour all mothers for their selfless love, patience and compassion that ripples out to the world and carries on to ripple out through their children.
.
Whether you’re an actual mum or not, I honour the mother, the creator in you who loves, who brings projects to life and nurtures them ✨
.
Loads of love to you all 💛

💛 CONTROL IN RELATIONSHIPS 💛

control in relationships.jpg

.

When there's control in a relationship, there's no connection, only seperation. 

.

The need to control can have many reasons. Maybe you weren't allowed to be yourself as a child. Maybe your boundaries were violated. Maybe you decided you had to control the other person before they control you..

.

When you try to control in a relationship, you see yourself seperate from the other person. You see them the enemy rather than your partner. You try to mold them into who you think they should be and what they should do.

.

Then the other person gets angry, upset or might even leave because you're not allowing that person to be truly who they are.. 

.

You might go into this super independant mode of doing everything on your own, because the other person might slow you down, because they're different, because they're not like you and they won't get you.. So it's better off to do it on your own.

.

But the truth is, you're in this together. Once you work with your differences rather than against your differences, things become much easier. Once you let go and surrender, there is more love, intimacy and joy.

.

Here's how you can move from control to surrender:

- Notice your immediate reaction of wanting to control when it comes up. Just become aware of it.

- Notice what behaviour the need to control pushing you to do.

- See what might happen if you do that

- Imagining you're empty and free from anything, feel the love you have for this person.

- Then ask, 'What's my next step to come back to this love?'

- Do that 😉

.

It's actually just a choice in the end of the day. It is choosing either love or seperation. 

.

Try this out and see how it goes for yourself. Would love to hear the outcome 🙏🏼

Much love to you! 💛
