RABBITS, TIGERS AND LOVE OH MY!
February 10, 2011. Day 1 of blogging about love for 21 days in 2011. Thank goodness I think to myself I didn't agree to blog for 201 days! I am overwhelmed about where to start. The topic of love is just so enormous, infinite, profound...well even without the adjective overload you know what I mean. Last year was the Year of the Tiger a period of change, turbulence, confrontation of our fears, friction and constant tapping into the courage well of the heart. This now is the Year of the Rabbit. A more gentle earthy year in which to cultivate peaceful contentment. This is a year of calm and quiet to focus on home and family.
And so I find myself engaged fully with the year of the Rabbit because I need it and also at the same time at odds with it because it doesn't come naturally. I loved the year of the Tiger! I was tuned into the warrior energy of creating and promoting and building. I have that energetic vata/pitta thing of the Fire element going on without trying. I sometimes even love with fierceness. But Rabbit? This is going to be a real test of my love skills.
You see I am a doer and survivor! In many ways I loved the year of the Tiger. Even now I sometimes want to scream out BRING BACK THE TIGER! But wait, last year was one of the most difficult of my life, felt like I was in a constant battle...yeah, on second thought i need the rabbit. And that makes more sense to the fact my sign is the Earth Monkey with traits like calm, considerate and honest.
When I feel the most grounded I feel in sync with love both from myself and from others. Even my yoga poses get more stable, sthira and centered. And from the yoga of promoting earth energy I feel more grounded, balanced, and centered with so much more to offer those I love. I have never been more ready to welcome a peaceful love and will do all I can to manifest a drama-free year of my best possibilities! I hope you do the same because you deserve it. Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
