Something for the weekend: cosmic bodies!
So things were kicking off in London – riots, looting, anger, destruction, which hit everyone who has any connection with the UK hard, and left everyone wondering why…
Part of it is social, part economic, part cultural and part is cosmic… check out this great post on why criminality begins in the womb, from a yoga teacher’ perspective …
Cosmic? Yup… If you’re into astrology and 2012 at all, then you might appreciate this explanation for why everything feels so at sea at the moment, why old patterns are coming up, along with lots of mental sludge. Hey Allie gives an insight into the cosmic overview

We can get extra magical benefits of our moon circle connection–healing and love light. I propose today and tomorrow we make a list of all the things we are grateful for, either written down or across your heart. The moon energy combined with our presence and awareness will infuse our bodies, minds and spirits–like a thankful tea, steeped full of love, moonlight, and thankfulness that we can drink for the next month.
Want to play together? To join us, list your town, state, country in this post and I will honor you and your location during my Circle.
Thanks to Becky for spreading the word and co ordinating this.
And finally – love your body as it is. According to a new website, My Body Gallery which has pictures of real women’s real bodies, * 95% of non-eating disordered women overestimate the size of their hips by 16% and their waists by 25%, yet the same women were able to correctly estimate the width of a box.. Type in your stats and see how you REALLY look.
Happy weekend. Cheers to us! That’s a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc in my hand! And a triple chocolate brownie for later. What’ll you have?
