It must be love, love, love
Love is the best!
A snippet of the words from the Madness hit back in the 90’s came to me after our meditative walk through the forest as we had watched the sun rise on the Solstice.
It was magical as we all chanted ‘Om So Hum’ while practising yoga, the forest listened as we all connected. ‘So Hum’ is derived from Sanskrit and literally means ‘I am That’ meaning we identify ourselves with the universe, as we chant or meditate on this, we realise that we are all one, we all come from one infinite source that’s present in all of us.
Summer is my high energy time; sunshine brings me the yellow of joy to celebrate and use up every ounce of daylight! Last week was full of sounds with a gong bath, walking mindfully and teaching yoga in nature. Guiding a meditation class of loving kindness, hiking in the Wicklow Mountains and more..why?
It’s my season I know I come alive when the sun shines, I love the long summer days, the smell of cut grass, and the brightness in the mornings. The beautiful sunsets illuminating the skyline, lying about in the sun soaking up the warm breeze, catching up with friends and family eating outdoors.
How do you feel during the summer? Do you take time to soak up and fill your heart with gratitude as you enjoy the summer holidays? Maybe autumn is your season when the leaves are changing colours and falling. Whatever your season notice how you mind and body feels and do what’s good for you.
