This month’s New Moon is in the delightful energy of Gemini – when this aspect of our inner self is flowing we can always find a new way, a new path, and move forward with joyous curiosity…
When it isn’t, we can get very polarised about our choices! “Shall I go this way? Or that way? Argh they both seem like good choices! But which one? Now I’m standing still not knowing where to go….”
When we get stuck like this, we forget there are always other options, perhaps ones we haven’t even noticed yet, and that any choice we make will take us forward. So I created a theme for this month’s BodyTalk session that helped with that, and in true Gemini style, some wonderful insights came from trying something new!
“With Crystal Clarity, I Can Always Find My Path”
So why did I choose these words? As I was preparing to create this ‘healing transmission’, they came to me as a kind of mantra that sums up everything that I love about Gemini energy, what it’s strength is, and what the lessons are it’s been serving up to us this month.
But then of course it hit me: One of those lessons we learn in the Gemini energy is precisely about communication and the power of our words! It’s only been in the last few days that I’ve realised the themes I’ve been choosing are actually affirmations, and what’s been very clear in my mind is this:
The story we are telling about ourselves, our state of health or prosperity, and our lives are creating our reality, whether we are speaking about things we want or things we don’t want, we are attracting what we are giving our focus to.
So it makes perfect sense to me that we would use a positive, powerful statement about what we want to create when we do these BodyTalk sessions, just as we would apply it to any other area of life. Instead of approaching healing in a way where we are looking to ‘fix a problem’, we can ask ‘what can I learn right now, and how can I frame this/tell this piece of my story in an empowering way’?
In its wisdom, Gemini understands that we live in a physical world of contrasts and polarities in which we came to play and create, and that we are free to choose, that the illusion of separation gives us uniqueness, diversity and contrast and so it stimulates change and expansion as well. Have you noticed that your Gemini friends seem to thrive on change? That when they are in their ‘light-hearted’ aspect, they have an almost magical ability to suddenly embark in a totally new direction? Of course, being the sign of contrast, the illusion of separation can also lead our minds into depression or indecision. Often we want change but can’t decide which direction is ‘the right’ one, often only perceiving 2 choices, this way or that.
In many ways it is mirrored in our brain, we think of ourselves as left brain or right brain people, logical or creative and so on. One of the things we talk about alot in BodyTalk, and the balance we want to bring about in our bodies and our beings, is a coherence and co-operation between both sides of ourselves, literally harmonising the relationship between the left and right brain, a state that people often refer to as ‘being in the zone’.
And that’s what I feel is the state of ‘crystal clarity’ that I’m referring to in the theme or affirmation, where instead of an internal argument, there’s an internal sense of partnership, and our logical self and our emotional self are on the same page…and we are really having fun with the idea that we have freedom to choose what we want to create in our life.
So one of the biggest ‘messages’ to come through in the BodyTalk session was about balancing the left and right brain, and there are many ways to do that. Having a physical ‘practice’, or any kind of body movement that also calms and engages the ‘quieter mind’ would be especially good right now, to switch the nervous system to it’s parasympathetic mode where we recover from stress. Think ‘taichi/yoga’ type exercise, or anything that requires both sides of the body working together in symmetry, like playing with poi or juggling. Did you know juggling has been proven to enhance connections in your brain? Check it out here
We also have a simple and easy way to balance the brain in BodyTalk, called “The Cortices Technique”. Watch this video that shows you how to do it – it’s easy to learn and takes about 5 minutes to do, it’s amazingly relaxing and will have a profound effect on the functioning of your brain, especially if you use it often.
The BodyTalk session recording is also now available on my online store, where you can download it and be guided through a healing. For updates on each New Moon Healing and what we’ll be working on, stay connected with my Facebook Page. Next New Moon, we’ll be in the sign of Cancer – a much more watery and emotional energy. I look forward to seeing you at the live BodyTalk session, and what magic may happen!
