April 2021 – CHANNELING THE ENERGY
The Full Moon in Libra last Sunday was something else again and was also bringing in the equinox, the start of the Spring season and the sign of Aries.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and represents a rebirthing time, a new beginning!
There is a palpable shift in energy during this time and it can bring forth ambition, power, and confidence to see things through in action.
It can, at times, feel so heavy that it can give you headhaches, in that case you need some grounding with gentle yin or hatha yoga, meditation and walks in nature.
Or you may feel that your body needs to get active and strong with more physical exercices like a run first thing in the morning or at the end of the day or some vinyasa yoga or even dancing!
With so much energy encouraging you to pursue your goals, you might find your head racing at times as you attempt to focus on what’s most important.
Also finding a bit of time to try and put your ideas on paper to get some clarity and direction over your thoughts but also some creativity. Use rosemary oil to help you focus.
To keep that energy pumping, it is time to cleanse the body and particularly the liver with plenty of fluids, green juices with lemon and parsley, lots of greens on your plate.
The Asparagus, spring cabbages and purple broccolis can bring a huge diversity to your dish, not forgetting the almighty wild garlic that can be used in salads but also pesto and will give you an immunity boost!!
Here is a little recipe for you:
30g wild garlic 100g nuts, such as pine, almonds, hazelnuts 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 50g hard cheese, such as Parmesan, pecorino, Cheddar or vegan cheese ½ a lemon
Wizz it all in a blender and use it in your favourite pasta but I love a little layer on my sourdough sandwich or even on slices of raw courgettes! Yum!!
Reducing fats and taking a course of milk thistle is a great way to support the detoxing phase and the liver.
My new Water Kefir for spring is now infused with Lemongrass, Lime, Nettle and Spirulina and will help through that phase.
My motto for this month is:
I AM STRONG AND HEALTHY
I AM LOVED AND NEEDED
I GROW AND PROSPER FOR THE GOOD OF ALL
Have a great energetic Easter!
