Life is flow.
Life is movement.
To be comfortable, we must be flexible and move with it.
Was feeling very anxious for last few days.
Overwhelmed by rapidly changing emotions.
And I think, there is not even a full moon to blame, this time.
Saged and palo santo my room. Did my practice. Sat still with crystals in my hands. Did reiki on myself.
And let myself to cry.
This is something I'm learning to do. Allowing tears to come.
In the evening, at the gym, doing the bridge rotations- movement that I have done hundreds of times, I hurt my left knee.
It's quite symbolic for today. Metaphyscly knee represents how flexible and open minded we are to life's situations. How willing or fearful we are to move forward. Stubbornness, ego and pride makes us inflexible, and often joint pain manifests.
Knees are seen as weight carriers and when weight becomes too heavy -emotional or physical, knees may speak up.
I truly believe in body and mind connections.
As much as I believe in muscle imbalances.
I hope its nothing big and it will heal with ice and rest. And maybe a quad release. And with the shift of my stubbornness to let go, as I'm becoming aware of it.
On the more happy note - tomorrow we have a girly roadtrip planned to nearby temple which I'm looking forward to.😍
Second best day of my life😍. P.S - First is yet to come. Let’s be honest, I was damn scared for it. First of all it made me nervous but then when you stand at the tip of the aircraft and you see there’s no land ahead - that moment hit the shit outta me😂. Then the jump. The golden moments of the dive were the free fall when I was just falling and enjoying the effin scenery and it was sooo beautiful😍. Felt in love with NZ. And yeah I am scared of heights😂. Everyone should add it to the “must do” list. Amazing Experience 🤯
Chinese settlement in Arrowtown: Back in the late 1800s, several Chinese came to Otago during the “gold rush” and stayed in this part of QT. Some of their homes have been preserved to give us a glimpse into their lives so far away from their loved ones, creating a family and clan of their own here, toiling everyday. Walking into these empty homes where people made a home away from home made me feel a certain something in my stomach. Because deep within, I relate to it, this pursuit away from home.
Other deets: this is in the heart of Arrowtown, has a lovely cafe, so close to Chop Shop (our favourite, already shared in an earlier post) and a great place to start the trails.
So I've just seen that I've been featured on @best_hand_made_embroidery 's page, thanks for the love guys! Working on some new stuff while balancing travelling/working/living abroad in the worst accomodation I've ever seen 😐 😂 life isn't all fun and rainbows but I will get back to my usual arty self soon
