ah-Rise.

The first Full Moon of 2018 occurs tomorrow not only on the first day of the year and on moonday (Monday) and a SuperMoon but also in La Luna’s home zodiac sign of Cancer. Energies are high and as such, I have been contemplating what to bring into this New Year and what to leave behind.

As human beings with intellect and egos, we have the natural tendency to analyze. As soon as we categorize a person, experience or thing there is an attachment that binds us. We rarely if ever reiterate the person, place or sequence of events that occurred without including our own opinions. And as such those re-creations are not fact but stories, often tying us to the past or future instead of living in the moment. It sets up expectations for similar experiences without allowing us to stand in awareness unbiased and unfiltered.

This is my resolution for the new year. Stop the stories. Slough it off. Let moments pass over me in its entirety instead of gnawing and chewing and digesting it to a pulp. Quiet the mind stuff. Be the now. Have gratitude attitude. Thank you 2017 for being the springiest of diving boards. We are about to phoenix right out of these ashes. Rise up yogis, Namaste.
