Full Moon Magic

I personally could feel the energies of this ‘strawberry’ moon building for days beforehand. I wouldn’t say that I am always so affected by the moon, but this one in praticular was making me feel very sensitive & emotional.

The night of class was no exception, and as I turned up to the spot over looking the sea, the sun was already setting making shades of pink and orange that could have made me cry, see I told you I was feeling emotional!

The class began with the changing colours of the sky, and I enjoyed seeing many new faces experiencing the beauty of nature and their own bodies. There was sometime before the star guest made her appearance, but without fail she started to rise out of the sea a giant glowing ball of red, much to the delight of the crowd.

As always class ended with smiles all round and some very relaxed bodies. Charged now with the energies of this full moon and the summer solstice’s light, we carried on with our city lives, with a new reconnection to nature.

Thank you beautiful yogis for these awesome moments we shared together, and now a special gift for you, my recipe for ‘Power Tea’ & lots of pretty pictures from class.

Power Tea

  • Rooibos tea (or any tea of your choosing)
  • Cardamon/ Cardamom – 1 handful crushed
  • Cinnamon/Canela- 2 tsp
  • Black pepper/ Pimiento negro – 1 tiny pinch
  • Tumeric/ Curcuma – 1tsp
  • Coconut milk/ Leche de coco (or any milk of your choosing)

Boil water and pour over tea of your choice, let it brew for a couple of minutes. Crush the handful of cardamon with the back of a knife and add to the tea and bring to a boil. Let this simmer for a couple of minutes. Then turn down the heat and add in the rest of the ingredients, tasting as you go along to adapt to your tastes.

Squat Paradise

Squat ParadiseI’m not the first one,

But I might be the last.

To write on this wall & add to the past.

See Squat Paradise is over,

It’s the end of an era.

It has been short-lived for me but I’ll always remember.

The laughter, the alcohol & the drugs too.

Tripping & pissing in the broken loo.

The walls leave the stories of people gone by,

Wise words & jokes from when they were high.

So these are my words,

They might not be epic.

This is simply a homage to squat house friendship.

This is one of the few poems I have written that isn’t centred around love.

The Shape of My Heart

They say ‘God moves in mysterious ways’

Shape of My heart

But really it’s my heart that puzzles me.

What does it want?

How does it work?

How does it have the ability to hurt?

Tell me how to fix it

How to tune in.

Does it have an aerial?

Can I plug it in?

Nov 26/06 – Barcelona

I wrote this poem nearly ten years ago, at a time in my life where I was going through many changes both emotionally and physically. I was 21 years old and had recently ‘moved’ to Barcelona, more accurately I was running away from a broken heart and the pressure of needing to know what to do with the rest of my life.

At that moment of writing I remember the feeling inside of me being like a torrent of love overflowing from my body. Maybe you think this sounds pleasant, but to me it was like torture. Waves and waves of love washed through me as I felt the highs and lows of this love energy. Imagine for one moment you can feel, in the space of minutes, the highest high from being in love and the lowest low, add to that the human mind that loves to complicate life, with its destructive thoughts, and self sabotaging outlook.

To put it short I was desperate, and for the first time in years I turned to my writing. It was the only way I could think to release this energy from inside of me. With hindsight this could look like a prayer…and very possibly it was.

Love, always…

The Beginning

IMG_4599

Soul Explorer

Although my journey began long ago,

I believe that this is where it starts.

Finally the urge is coming from deep within

To share the inside of my heart.

So here I am now writing this,

A kind of introduction.

To prepare you for the words to come,

And maybe give a warning.

The rawness of my words is real,

My heart has been through much ordeal.

The pen is my way to see the light,

An unedited look into my life.

 

 

Welcome all of you who are joining me on this journey. I wrote this piece as I struggled to find the words to introduce my writing. This is pretty much how my creativity works, spontaneously, fuelled by confusion and intense emotions.

All of my work is unedited and a raw expression of myself.ย  I want to share this with you as I believe that my emotions and my feelings are not unique and that maybe, just maybe my words will ring true inside of you and help you to find your own shining light.

 

Love, always…
