Life Lessons from Liza Minnelli

FULL MOON IN SCORPIO.  GROUNDING INTENSITY.

Things have been intense recently.  And I know I’m not the only who feels this way.  Maybe you have also been feeling a little out of control, a little anxious, a little manic or moody.  There’s good reason for that.  With big planets like Jupiter and Saturn in Scorpio we are being invited into intensity and transformation (because that’s what the sign of Scorpio is all about).  This is a sign that loves nothing more than digging deep into sex and death and shadow.  And the full moon last night, which you can still work with, was a giant period at the end of a cycle of transformation for all us.  At this moment we are halfway through Spring and time feels like it’s really speeding up.  This full moon asks us to notice where have we reached the end of a story, and how can we bring all this energy in for a landing.

Here’s the deal, Scorpio can go from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye.  It is addicted to feeling things in the most powerful way– but our job is learning how to translate that intensity into something we can use.  For example, I’ve been traveling almost non-stop for the past few weeks.  And it’s been beautiful and exciting, lots of revelations coming in left and right.  But at the end of the day these transformational experiences are only as valuable as my ability to integrate them into my daily life.  And that is what this full moon is paving the way for– a chance to bring all your spiritual and emotional adventures back down to Earth.

Often times when we are going through a rough situation we just want to get to the other side as quickly as possible.  And that is completely understandable.  But consider that whatever you have been going through is now coming to an end.  What has this moment taught you?  What new aspects of yourself has it revealed?  Sometimes the most painful and intense experiences in our lives are the catalyst for the personal upgrade we’ve been waiting for.  Learning how to channel the energy of pain and disappointment into personal power is what making magic is all about.  You are the magician of your life and everything is happening for you.  But it requires the discipline and discernment to harness all that energy and apply it to your every day life.  Simply put, it’s not enough to have the breakdown– you have to work with the wound until it becomes your breakthrough.

 

Whenever I’m feeling depressed as fuck I watch this hilarious video of Liza Minnelli on the Home Shopping Network.  Not only is it just out of control funny, because Liza (goddess bless her) is high as a kite, but there’s some wisdom in here too.  She talks about how she broke her knee and that forced her to spend weeks in bed.  She didn’t know what to do with herself, so she started working with clay– and she realized she loved it.  Then she started making jewelry molds out of the clay and now she’s selling her shit on HSN.  I don’t know about you but THAT is some major witchcraft right there.  That’s how you work with a wound and let it lead you forwards to your bigger, better life.  You see, you have to work with your wounds like clay, feel them in your hands, mold them around, meditate on them.  Ask them what they want to become.  And then have the courage to listen.  Like Liza you can turn your psychological and emotional sufferings into real world gold– but you have to get real and keep it simple.  This full moon is building us a bridge where we can take our intense experiences and spin them into something we can actually use.  But the full moon wont walk you across, you have to take the steps yourself, placing one foot in front of the other.

Above all the most important thing you can do in these next two weeks is to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF ON A PHYSICAL LEVEL.  This means eating well, long baths, massages, facials, hiking and exercise– you want your self care to be on fleek!  Let your inner Earth Goddess emerge and start to treat yourself to sensual pleasures.  Cook an extravagant meal and let yourself really taste it.  Buy an expensive candle and luxuriate in its smell.  When things get crazy and out of control, real world  pleasures can ground us back in our body.  Your body is the wisest teacher you have.  So don’t be afraid to really root into the physical world.  Because at the end of the day, the only place we can manifest our dreams is in the present moment.  And your body will expose you to the present moment and all of its possibilities.   Good luck grounding your intensity, plant it deep in the soil of your heart and notice what starts to bloom.

I want to help you make magic out of your pain and suffering.  I want to show you how to turn your trauma into triumph.  So for the next two weeks, while the moon slowly wanes, I’m offering a SPECIAL ON ENERGY HEALING AND BREATHWORK.  Instead of the regular rate of $150, you can work one-on-one with me for only $100.  This seventy minute session will take you into the root of your wounds so you can start to transform them into something valuable.  I am confident that if you are ready to change your life, your habits or your responses, we can truly take some big steps together.  If you are one of those people who have trouble letting go, feeling your emotions or releasing the negative mental chatter, THIS IS FOR YOU!

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  It’s a joy for me to have this new platform to share some thoughts and stay connected.  For those of you who reached out regarding SOUL CENTERED PILATES, please know it’s currently on hold while I find a new suitable location.  But I will reach out as soon as it’s back on track.

Lots of love,
Brandon
