Paris Climate Agreement Signing Ceremony

Coinciding with the Earth Day, the Paris Agreement has been signed on April 22 at the UN Headquarters, in New York City. Among other goals, it will fight against global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.

The Paris Agreement was adopted by all 196 Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris on 12 December 2015. In the Agreement, all countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius, and to strive for 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The agreement will enter into force 30 days after at least 55 countries, accounting for at least 55 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, deposit their instruments of ratification or acceptance with the Secretary-General.

The implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are key tools for promoting prosperity, improving people’s wellbeing, and protecting the environment.

What do Climate Change and the Protection of the Environment have to do with us? Is it entirely the responsibility of political leaders? – Being a “citizen” means as well to take on responsibilities, at the community level, in our neighborhoods, workplace…  UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made it clear that each of us has a role to play emphasizing that “small actions, multiplied by millions, will bring about dramatic change, bolstering the Paris Agreement”.

Personally, at home I recycle garbage, am concerned of the use of energy -heating, electricity-, am careful with noise, try to purchase products environment-friendly, use public transportation as much as possible, and stay up to date -follow news and read-.

A Woman´s Moon Centers

In a recent workshop, I have known about moon centers, which are exclusive to women. According to Jivan Joti Kaur, moon centers are: “Sensitive physical areas located on the woman’s body that are responsive to lunar energies and affect how we deal with our everyday life. “

We have 11 Moon Centers in our body, and we dwell in each one for 2 1/2 days. Every woman’s rotation pattern is unique, and stays the same her entire life. However, a sudden event -emotional shock- can change the natural rhythm or rotation pattern. The Moon Centers do not coincide with the menstrual cycle or zodiacal mood cycle.

Our 11 moon centers:

  1. Clitoris: very social, likes to network and connect
  2. Vagina: also social, but deep cavity — tendency to be inward and pensive.
  3. Thighs (inner organs also): most organized, to the point of obsession, you make your lists, clean, organize. Best time to do the things on your lists.
  4. Navel: most insecure, which creates a lot of pain. Do: breath of fire, navel power sets, meditate, silence, go inward, write, be creative, dance. Don’t: chocolate fest.
  5. Breasts/Nipples: most compassionate and heart-centered. Dangerous: might have a hard time setting your boundaries. Most likely to be sensual/sexual – affects whether you want to be touched.
  6. Back of the neck – very romantic and erotic. flirtatious, takes risks and not very logical. Not a good time to make a decision but a good time to brainstorm. Not good for planning, meetings, or detailed work.
  7. Lips: speech, communication. Words can be uplifting/effective. But if you’re not balanced, words can be harsh and alienating. Be careful or be still! May be most into kissing and erotic expression.
  8. Cheeks: most dangerous! We’re crazy. Most emotional, illogical, and delusional. Emotions run away with themselves, say things we don’t mean, pick fights.
  9. Earlobes: Self-righteous, connected to our values, more prone to activism and judgmental.
  10. Eyebrows: most subtle part of our parasympathetic nervous system. illusionary/imaginary. Be creative or brainstorm and play! Don’t make decisions or go shopping, but dream.
  11. Hairline (archline): Our halo. Wisdom, focused. Time you’re most connected to your essence. Great for decisions!

Charting the Moon Centers

Jivan Joti Kaur Khalsa  advices that if we watch our diet, practice yoga and meditation, and maintain a positive attitude, we can observe our emotional tendencies at each Moon Center and not be a victim to them. We can study them to better understand our personality and then use them for our benefit. An added benefit is that stimulating our active Moon Center can be very sensually erotic in love-making.

A transformational experience this weekend: Kundalini Dance

This Saturday I practiced for the very first time Kundalini Dance and I got fascinated. We were a group about 10 women together with the instructor.

We introduced ourselves and prayed before starting. The instructor guided us. The workshop consisted basically of letting our body move and dance while focusing our mind in the points of meditation given by the instructor.

The theme was “personal empowerment” and the sensuous music enlightened us in the transformational path, which covered these areas:

1.- Follow your own values;

2.- Take on responsibility in your life;

3.- Don´t compare to other people;

4.- Set Limits;

5.- Conviction (in goals, actions);

6.- Take Action: pursue your dreams;

7.- Show your self, who you are;

8.- Reward yourself, be kind to yourself (envision a crown of light over your head);

We were dancing through these 8 stages of personal empowerment and all women felt highly connected to each other and shared the love. We finished praying again. Each of us picked a card of guidance from Doreen Virtue angel tarot cards. Mine was White Tara!

Love After Love, Romancing the Self

I have have the great chance of meeting Laura Halt and of attending a couple of her amazing talks.

Together with Jennifer Grace, both of them have designed a “magical journey” to free ourselves from being stuck based on some tools and daily practice -awareness, journaling and meditation-.

I am following this path and will write more about it in coming posts!

  • The poem above served as meditation in one of her sessions.
