Dear Courageous Choosers,
Once upon a time.....
Now you fill in the rest.
Qoya is based on the idea that through movement, we remember. Sometimes what we remember is the future. There is a new future calling us all forward that we may not know yet, but we can feel. Do you agree?
When working with women to help them trust their intuition more as they embark on their path of creation - whether that be themselves, their lifestyle, business, social justice impact, or creative projects - I encourage them to let go of the idea that they need to know the five year plan.
Instead, I stand for the belief that all you really need is clarity about the next step to take right now. Rather than thinking your way through, you can feel your way through. Rather than analyzing your options, you can dance with them!
Our resident astrologer, Virginia Rosenberg, shares:
The New Moon in Gemini on June 13, 2018 (3:43pm EST) is opening the way. It is a clearing of the air. A change in atmosphere. Open yourself to the invitations before you. Soften the mind. Make yourself curious. Circle through the body. Become supple and dexterous. Go forth lightly into good news unfurling. Emerging from complexity and mystery, we enter the realm of simple story. What was an uncomfortably blank slate loaded with backstory now displays the first line of a new chapter. The rest yet unwritten, but we can read the first line. How satisfying it is to see the beginning! Welcome grace and magic to inform the words that will tumble forth from here. Here, we play. We dance. We create characters and dialogue. We learn through exchange. We spin tales and narratives of fancy. We ride on the buoyant, bubbling voices of birdsong rising in our midst. Twirl on the currents of air. Still in a window of choices, the next full moon will anchor firm commitments. Before we know, we feel - and we dance.
Do you know the first sentence of your next chapter?
Can you feel its essence?
Are you willing to take the time to explore it, dance with it this week, and offer it up to the Summer Solstice (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere) next week?
To support you in dancing into this opening, I offer the first module of my course A Call to Create on the theme "Begin." By dancing with the theme of beginning, brainstorming by circling ideas through your body, doing a Three Card Story ritual to check in with your soul's voice today, completing worksheets to make an inventory of the support you'd like to call in, and gathering your community to connect, even taking a pilgrimage (maybe on the solstice?) to return to or honor your birthplace, you can dance into that first sentence on this New Moon and the days that follow.

If you're short on time, I recommend you begin with Circling!
Engage with the exercises you're attracted to and go where you're led. I hope it's supportive to you as you take the next step in creating your life.
