One of the things I am working on in 2020 is language and how I use it. It is important how you speak to yourself and to the world. There’s been loads of self talk work in the past years, so the focus is the world. The other thing that I am doing work on is Ableism.
Partly because I have a lame problem. Lame is a world that’s been part of vocabulary since my teens. It gets used all the time. Lame is Ablest. I am in the process of breaking this habit started sometime in the 1980’s. It is slow going but improving.
The other part of this is thinking about how people who do not have the physicality that I have in my life can do the practices suggested. How can I come up with ideas for them to use what I do in their own manner that works for them.
If anyone has a suggestion to replace Lame, let me know.
So far it is Loser and it isn’t the feeling the same.
New Moon in Libra
There’s a feel here of trying to get some form of balance back in place. It may or may not be working for you. Look at how you define balance and create a definition that fits what 2020 has dumped in your lap.
It will not be perfect but it should feel good for you. Don’t force it but let it open softly to be what you need. Soft is good. The more gentleness you can foster the better right now.
Now the Reveal!
This week is not really a deck but from the Moon Collage Project. Each month I make a collage for the full and new moon.
Take a good look at the opportunities that are there. If you feel a lack of them where can you start to foster them and create the choice you want. It is your choice to go through the door and pick which door you want. Keep you mind focused on what you want and not the sparkly new thing glittering in the corner. Where are you distracted and by what? What door is calling to you?
Touch is a difficult one in 2020 with the Rona and being stuck inside and socially distanced. There peeps out there who have not touched another person in over 200 days. That’s tough! Look at how you can receive touch even if it is your pet. Touch is important don’t take it for granted if you have this Where can connection be made via spirit and voice when touch is not possible? How do you celebrate being able to touch another human?
This is a call to get your body moving, this collage focused on yoga but it can be anything. Dance to some music, do some jumping jacks, or simply shake your arms out. The Movement you decide upon needs to fit where you are right now. It needs to be doable. Make sure it is happening on at least the small scale get up from your computer and move around. How are you getting your movement? Do you need more of it?
