What are you longing for?
For the last week or so, I’ve been hearing the Mourning Dove coo each morning. Having sighted a pair on our nearby telephone wire, I suspect they may be building a nest. I love their low, sweet sound. It reminds me of the purr of a relaxed cat, and at the same time has a lilt that feels like a sense of longing. It made me ask myself, “What are you longing for?”
This felt like a beautiful question at this time in which we let go into the energy of the New Moon, a phase that supports a reflective and restful period. What do we want to continue doing and what do we want to let go of? How does it feel to make a choice to pause, to “not do” and to listen to the language of our soul reflected back to us in all things around us?
The messages we hear from the spiritual realm are not usually loud and obvious but, instead, require the development of a more subtle perception, and trust. If you listen to the Mourning Dove’s call, you may find you also hear a reply from a nearby Dove. It is quieter but just as gentle and peaceful. This is like the energy of your Soul as you listen for its response.
In the spirit of “What do we want to continue doing and what do we want to let go of”, I offer you a Yoga Philosophy video (click on the photo below to watch) to inspire you to create a daily spiritual practice in order to listen to and support your sacredness. A wonderful side effect is that it is one of the most important things you can do to support your immune system and navigate the ongoing challenges of our times.
With Great Love,
