This time last week, I was preparing to go camping alone, to a festival alone. I have been reflecting a lot about myself. Am I Happy? Am I Good?
To be honest my happiness, as morphed into a ‘Happi-Mess’. A Happy-Mess of worrying, not Happy, not good.
It didn’t take long, during reflection to see, my ‘Happi-Mess’…because the feeling, discomfort is actually stronger than the visualisation.
My ‘Happi-Mess’ moves in waves, sailing through ups and downs successfully finding the medium of yes you’ve guessed it, a ‘Happi-Mess’.
Happi-Mess, is a balance where everyone around me, is happy, healthy and whole in their comings and goings because they have my time, attention and will to do has they please to be consistently ‘Happy, and Good’. Whilst I remain in my Happi-Mess, grasping oh so sweet moments of being Happy and Good.
I have no one to look to, but myself, I can only make choices for myself so in a funny sort of….I want to break free, from this ‘Happi-Mess’, I began to look at what I did not like, what I was doing, my habits, patterns that had created my you guessed it my ‘Happi-Mess’.
Looking around me, there are no longer babies, young ones, family who need my time and support. They can manage, but make choices to hold my time and support.
So little by little, I have been making I am Happy, I Am Good choices.
Yes, Yes, Yes! Go, Go, Go! Choices. So here I am all booked up to go camping 🏕…at a Festival ☺, Vegan, Holistic Festival…Everything that makes me ‘Happy’, makes me ‘Good’. Releasing myself from my ‘Happi-Mess’, that is unfulfilled.
I explored delicious Vegan food, walked, slept under the stars adoring the Moon, in its crescent 🌙form.
I watched the Sun rise…
And watched the Sunset.
I danced until nearly midnight, invited my body to return to Yoga, find my ‘Yoke’ to be open, stretching with no clocks, no alarms.
Sat by a lake, stepped into the lake, wade in the water…sending my ‘Happi-Mess’ away, for me to become Happy and Good.
I chose to live in the moment, using balance…I felt I didn’t have to ‘Paddle Board’
And just like that…I made a single choice….I Am Happy, I Am Good, I Am Happy, I Am Good….
Sat Kriya is one of the most powerful and complete kriyas. It is an “entire Yoga session in one posture”. Sat Kriya is fundamental to Kundalini yoga, giving your Chakras a spring clean. This can be practiced on its own every day for at least 3 minutes. TAKING A long, deep relaxation immediately afterward, suggested, minimum 15 minutes.

- Stretch the arms over the head with elbows straight, until the arms hug the sides of the head.

Benefits of Sat Kriya strengthens the entire sexual system and stimulates its natural flow of energy. It can also relax phobias, negativity about sexuality. It allows you to control the insistent sexual impulse by re-channelizing sexual energy to creative and healing activities in the body.

Did you know, April is ‘Stress Awareness’ Month?
Have you been feeling, stretched and challenged, over whelmed, unable to cope?
Fact: Stress Awareness Month has been held every April Since 1992 to increase public awareness of the causes, signs and coping strategies for stress. http://www.stress.org.uk
Buds started to bloom, all over colours began to come from grey. April has been a hard, long and stressful month…
Feeling a strong shift that brighter days are coming…Most of all a recognition to release and let go what no longer serves me.
I have let go of relationships work and personal, I have let go of trauma…and see the light in letting go of sickness and ill health.
I welcome, quite, peace and change to welcome a new life, a brighter life.
The journey will be long and fruitful, without frustration and barriers….Staring deep into the flame…inviting hope, clarity and freedom to be lighter, brighter.
