Do you ever feel frustrated at the pace with which your brain moves?
A yoga practice to welcome last week’s lunar eclipse, Mallorquin-style (at the beach) marked the start of me finding my focus.
Several weeks into my stay in Mallorca, and we are now peeking into August (HOW?). I realised that I’ve been so immersed in this experience that I haven’t kept up with posting. My friends and family have been asking ‘how’s it going?’ The simple version is fantastic. There’s a sense of balance here that I am loving very much. On the flip-side I’ve been so busy out here that I slightly lost sight of my own purpose, and that was to continue with my blog.
I sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by the speed with which my own brain moves. I seem to have an inability to focus long enough to act upon the great ideas I seem to keep having. Its frustrating, but I am guessing I’m not the only one to feel like that. I also recognise the need to not beat myself up about it.
I have had a few moments where I have felt compelled to write, and then simply changed tasks, entirely daunted by the huge list of topics that I want to cover…there are so many subjects that I want to delve into…so many posts I want to write about the places I’ve visited.
A great friend of mine recently said to me ‘sweetheart keep it simple, don’t overthink it’: So as I see it, the only thing I can do is to get a better rhythm, post more regularly and NOT write long essays of copy (guilty as charged). I also need to stop overworking the words and just hit ‘publish’.
I am pulling together the many reasons that I love Mallorca for a post in the coming weeks. For now I simply want to share just one key magical moment from last Friday evening, when I went to the beach for a pre-eclipse yoga practice.
The main image is of last Friday evening in our yoga circle. My iPhone snaps of the eclipse of course didn’t come out well – but you’ve likely seen many already. There could also be so many words – but it was a deeply personal moment and I don’t want to rant on trying to find a way to explain it.
I am told that a lunar eclipse marks a big reset or shift in energy…that was the part of the blood moon that I felt.
Here’s to potency in practice, rhythm and flow.
Thank you to Kate Caistor for coming up with the idea to go rogue on the beach, and of course for the soothing practice.
