Sensual Qigong Pause
Updated: Jan 16, 2021
Walking into an uncertain future. Trusting. Accepting. Fearless. Free. Towards endless possibilities. Looking around. Turning back for a moment. Revisiting. Reflecting. In gratitude for all the lessons and growth. Not dwelling there for too long before moving ahead again with courage. Each step closer to what no longer is and what is yet to become. Unfolding. Will you walk with me?
Hello my love, How are you feeling? This is a busy time of the year and the end of a challenging year. We are transitioning from Fall to Winter, slowing down even further. Turning in and on before turning out again in Spring. I hope you are able to pause with me in the midst of it all to take time for self love and self care. To connect, tune in and reflect. To be, feel, create and flow. I am teaching three more classes before we enter 2021 and I am also taking a moment to rest, reflect and recharge.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese energy practice to achieve health and longevity. It is relaxing and invigorating helping to both calm and energize your body tapping into the self-healing medicine that is already inside of you. It is thousands of years old and rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is the predecessor of Acupuncture. I have created Female Sensual Qigong from my many years of qigong practice to inspire women to not only mindfully be in the moment, but also sensually feel in the moment, experiencing your body, mind and soul with all your senses activated. It is such a beautiful mind body practice. Each movement activates energy flow through your body. Your breath powers up your energy, your visualization gives your energy direction and your senses have you feel and experience your energy. Through soft flowing movements paired with carefully curated music, guided meditation, breathing, visualization, vocalization and self-massage, it is my wish for you to come home to your sensual body, your creativity, flow, pleasure, curiosity and intuition. To come home to your wild and open mind with visions of your dreams and desires. And to come home to the powerful energy of passion, joy and unconditional love in your heart. This practise invites you to to feel, welcome and unlock unfelt or unexpressed emotions and stuck energy in your body so that the energy of healing, trust, peace, kindness, ease, passion, pleasure, uplift, creativity and love can rush in and flow through. Leaving you feeling rejuvenated, revitalized, centered, connected, sensual and empowered from the inside out. Sensual Qigong is a practice of self love and self care. A practise of receiving and sharing. Of play and discovery. Each movement is never the same because it never feels the same. There is not one or perfect way to practice. The only way is your way in that very moment in time - making the movement your own, finding your rhythm, exploring different ways to move your body that feel good to you. Many women experience a deeper connection with self, intuition and others, more energy, less worry and stress and a sense of peace and trust. I wish you a love filled holiday season,
I remember seeing this video a long time ago. It moved me then and even more now. I miss the thrill of experiencing live music and being able to share it with people.
"Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” was composed in 1824, in the final movement of his last, and arguably most famous, symphony, Symphony No. 9.
The premiere took place in Vienna on May 7, 1824, and despite its unpracticed and under-rehearsed presentation, the audience was ecstatic. It was the first time Beethoven had appeared on stage in 12 years.
At the end of the performance (though some sources say it could have been after the 2nd movement), it was said that Beethoven continued conducting even though the music had ended. One of the soloists stopped him and turned him around to accept his applause. The audience was well aware of Beethoven’s health and hearing loss, so in addition to clapping, they threw their hats and scarves in the air so that he could see their overwhelming approval.
This symphony is considered by many leading musicologists to be one of the greatest works in western music. What makes it so special is Beethoven’s use of the human voice; he was the first major composer to include it within a symphony.
This is why you’ll often see Symphony No. 9 referred to as the Choral Symphony. Beethoven’s 9th symphony, with an orchestra bigger than any other at the time and a play time of well over an hour (longer than any other symphonic work), was a major turning point for classical music; it was a catapult into the Romantic Period, where composers began breaking the rules of composition and exploring the use of large ensembles, extreme emotion, and unconventional orchestration.
The “Ode to Joy” text that Beethoven employed, and slightly modified, was written by the German poet, Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller, in the summer of 1785. It was a celebratory poem addressing the unity of all mankind.
In 1972, the Council of Europe made Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” it's official anthem. Years later, in 1985, the European Union did the same. Although Schiller’s text isn’t sung in the anthem, the music conveys the same ideas of freedom, peace, and unity."
NEW MOON INSPIRATION

On December 14-15, we have a Total New Moon Solar Eclipse in the sign of Sagittarius.
"Solar Eclipses are like potent New Moons and unlock a door to a new portal of energy.
There is so much fresh energy on offer for us under this Eclipse. It brings the promise of brand new beginnings, fresh starts, and the opportunity to set wheels into motion.
The energy of the Solar Eclipse has the power to amplify these gifts and rewards, so think about where you have felt most challenged and where you have done the most growth, and then stay open to any gifts and rewards that may be illuminated for you under this energy.
Under the light of this Eclipse, we may find ourselves accessing the wisdom of our intuition, spirit guides, and higher self with greater ease, but we have to be in an open state to notice and receive these offerings too.
The fastest way to get into a state of receiving is to shift our mindset, and the easiest way to do that is to focus on abundance, appreciation, and gratitude as often as we can.
When you shift out of complaining, wishing things were different, or self-limiting thinking, and open instead to abundance, you will open the door to not just seeing the offering of the universe, but all that you have to offer too.
Giving from the pureness of your heart is also another way to open to receiving.
This time of year tends to bring out the spirit of giving anyway, but see if you can shift this to come from a more heart-centered place rather than a place of obligation.
The Sagittarius Solar Eclipse is also connected to the Eclipses we experienced back in June 2020.
In fact, this Solar Eclipse is directly linked to the Lunar Eclipse we had on June 5, 2020.
Do you remember what was called to be released from your life under that June Lunar Eclipse?
Whatever empty space you have been working with since that time will blossom flowers under the presence of this December Solar Eclipse.
Under this Eclipse, our powers to create and draw things to us are amplified, so pay attention to what you are choosing to focus on and think about.
What you think about expands, and this is doubly true under the power of this Eclipse.
The Sagittarius Solar Eclipse beckons us to rise up and observe the many blessings that have been hidden in the shadows.
As we bring our blessings into the light, it also shines a spotlight on our relationship with the Universe.
Embrace the season of your life, ground into this Solar Eclipse energy, and keep your heart and mind rooted in the miracle that you are.
Overall, the Sagittarius Solar Eclipse carries some of the brightest energy we have experienced all year.
Stay open to the light even though there may be darkness present too. Listen to your own inner voice and keep your heart pointed in the direction you wish to head."
2021 Magical manifestation mist
Towards the close of the past several years I wait in anticipation for a new magical manifestation mist to come into creation by my dear friend Lisa Kochanik @spiritualbeautycenter.
You may know Lisa and have practiced with her in our Qi-circles.
I am so excited to share with you that her signature annual remedy is complete and for sale on her website and in her studio in Highlands, New Jersey.

Each bottle of 2021 has been lovingly handmade by Lisa to receive your intention and to bring your energy field into vibrational alignment with your heart's desire. This is done through an ancient alchemical process that starts with the pure wisdom of water. Water is a carrier of vibrational information. Water is programmable through intention. In addition to this specially prepared water, each bottle of 2021 also contains the energy of the sun, moon and celestial light from highly auspicious days and from sacred sites throughout our beautiful world. Powerful frequencies are also added from a synergistic blend of flower, gem essences, essential oils, sound and color supports resonance with your heart's desire for 2021. Crystalline intelligence in the form of Pink Tourmaline, Prehnite and Clear Quartz.
