In recent years I have been trying to reduce my plastic and chemical footprint. Somethings have worked better than I imagined, this is one of them!
So unbelievably easy. This is quite simply powdered arrowroot from my local health food shop.
Yes, it comes in a little plastic bag, but compared to the compressed spray cans this is vastly better. I am going to try and grow some myself as well to try and get this down to zero waste.
I had this lovely pink icing sugar shaker in my kitchen which has proved perfect for the job.
It was a gift from my mum and came from a charity shop; you can probably pick them up on eBay as well.
Earlier this year I explained to a friend how I was relinquishing the need to do anything anymore. There needed to be more flow in my life. More buoyancy. Somewhere among my grandmother, who I have been very close too, getting dementia, her ever increasing care needs, my son and the work I love so much more of my life had had to be parked or sheded entirely in a bid to keep up with what I had to do.
Before the summer holidays we made the difficult decision to find her the right residential care, knowing it was now the only way to keep her safe and meet her needs. Hoping it would give her some relief as well.
Giving nature a home in our homes!
As pollinators and insects face extinction it is essential for us to step up and offer them space and food free of pesticides.
We can all look abroad at how other countries are chopping down rain forests and poison earth and water…. but what are we doing right here? Literally in our own back gardens? We chop down natures home and poison it!
Here are my thoughts on re-wilding our homes and garden and how easy it really is.
Thank you for watching.
Hello Dear Heart
Last Sunday we gathered for our New Moon Circle, celebrating the archetype of Taurus with the Wild Woman Project.
Our focus was “Receiving Our Wealth” and this continues over this moon cycle to be a point of consideration, reflection and intention creation.
Today is day 38 of my 40 day mantra meditation practice Har Har Har Har Har Har Har Hari.
This mantra is translating roughly as the creative aspect of infinity, it’s used to help break through blocks we might have to manifesting success, prosperity, wealth and abundance in our life, and world.
As I reflected this morning, I realised I am experiencing more gratitude for my existing wealth, my success is steadily increasing in some areas. I am seeing more positive wealth around me in environmental projects with soil rejuvenation, less polluting farming methods gaining increasing fashion, alternative plastic products being used at international events….more and more and more companies in line with supporting natural abundance coming to the forefront.
When is surviving not enough? NOW!
The way we live has to change. We KNOW this.
We know our human activity is having a huge negative impact on the environment. And also US!!!
We know change has to happen. Most of us want it to happen. So, to see the energy and momentum behind Extinction Rebellion has really got me thinking.
There are lots of changes a foot here both in my life and in my business. In last months Wild Woman Project Circle we explored ‘responsibility’. I shared how hostile and resistant I was to this theme, and as often happens when we explore what we resist the most, a breakthrough has unraveled…because in my heart I knew that I had handed responsibility for various aspects of my life and work to others.
I had already had a sense of it, but being honest about it, saying it out loud and exploring it has proved very interesting.It is easily done. We are tired, overworked, in need of something
One thing being a mother has taught me is that my resilience does not lie in my physical body, which I had always relied on before.
When my world became tiny and every part of my life was taken over by Henry my physical asana practice was not a priority.
When my physical strength was compromised by post birth pelvic and back problems I spent months unsure if I would ever even be able to practice asana again, let alone teach. It has been a slow road back to the basics, some things are still just “No noes” for me and probably always will be.
I haven’t spoken about this for a while but losing the weight and being healthy since I had Henry has been a huge challenge.
Last week he started school, we also bought a house again in August (5th home in 4 years) and it’s changed everything!
A stable home and a shift in routine and I am given the chance to really focus on my own health again. Both my physical and subtle body, as well as my monkey mind.
