This year, I have promised myself to bring my voice to my purpose, to become and better communicator and improve writing skills too. Foldenmove® lives and grows through its people and I have felt the deep desire to share more of this journey with you. Rolling up my sleeves and breaking self limiting beliefs of 'not being good enough', I decided to make a massive move on starting a monthly newsletter and a blog series called 'Humans of Foldenmove®'.
Coming out on the 27th of every month, the official Foldenmove® newsletter and a monthly blog article will be there to share with you all that is happening in the Foldenmove® world, all that is to come, how to get involved, as well as how to make the Foldenmove® magic become yours too! No matter where you are in the world. January brought about a powerful sense of shift and transformation this year. I am curious to know how you've received it?
Entering 2019 already feels like a stroke of the past, yet I won't ever forget its unfolding....
I celebrated the crossover into the new year with one of my favourite humans alive, sitting on a $10 Dollars K-MART unicorn chair with my toes in the sand, watching the sunset and sleeping under the stars. Neither of us had planned anything like this before, and yet sleeping in a tiny tent on the beach became the most incredible experience.
Our phones had run out of battery earlier that night, leaving us literally timeless. With no notion of time, other than the sight of fireworks glimmering at a distance, we felt limitless. It was pure magic.
No countdowns... and no trace of forceful resolutions. No frame or construct to lure the mind into dissatisfaction of the past, or worries about the future. Instead, we sat there in awe with our hearts full of excitement and our souls submerged with the energy of abundance and acceptance. We had been so spontaneous about the whole thing, we were following our intuition. Spending New Year's in nature had allowed us to embrace and anchor ourselves in the present moment with full intention.
When we are mindful and deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, we begin to feel grounded, clear and abundant with joy, calm, and love.
What I Learnt...
We may not always be able to meet our needs immediately as they arise, especially in the fast paced mainstream reality in which we operate on a daily basis. But we can still tune-in to receive the messages from our body, mind, soul, as well as the wisdom of our spirit and intuition too.
In my experience, TRUE connection starts from within. It starts with a collaboration between all parts of yourself. This is the blessing of self-awareness and we all have access to it.
Cultivating this awareness with compassion and making choices accordingly feels much more freeing than a resolution or a goal.
From this place of expanded consciousness we can connect to other humans; strangers and loved ones alike, with an open heart. We can be with the people and experiences of our lives in a meaningful, present manner.
We can spend so time living in our heads, listening to the constant noise of our thoughts, that we can become disconnected from our soul and our internal landscape. This division can cause a feeling of being 'stuck' and it can quickly become a dominant theme in our experiences...
How do you begin reconnecting and listening to yourself?
There are many ways... Intention is one of them.
A good intention feeds your consciousness and has the power to significantly raise your awareness. When you set an intention, you don’t have to worry about your actions. An inspired intention creates inspired action. When Foldenmove® was born two years ago, it was born from a place of intention, deep truth and intuition. It came from my own story. It is, at its core, a story we can all share. It is a journey inwards to remember where we come from. Foldenmove® has the power to guide us back to a place of inner knowing guided by the heart and by the soul.
Intention setting is a big part of the magic Foldenmove® has to offer, and here follows a little seed of it that I would like to share with you here:
INTENTION VS. RESOLUTION
3 Min Meditation: Think about a resolution you made at the start of the year and write it down. Now close your eyes and drop into your heart space. Think about the inner most desire that drove this resolution?
What does it 'feel' like? Where does the desire 'sit' in your body? Now, for a moment, imagine you already possessed all the skills, all the knowledge and all the wisdom of the world needed to meet your desire...
What would this vision look like?
The image that pops to mind is a direct expression of your intention. It comes from a place of knowing that you already have in you everything you need. It resides in the knowing that you are enough - right now - to go where ever it is you wish to go. Open your eyes, and write it down in words, beside your initial resolution... Notice a shift?
Please share, I would love to hear from you!
