Goin' Surfin'

Shauna Teaken - Wednesday, January 04, 2017


 ..

Do you have down days where you just feel like chucking it all in and going surfing? Even if you don’t surf, have never surfed and you live a million miles from the surf? I do! You’re riding high, feeing great and then boom! It feels like you’ve gone five steps back and been totally ..

The Gentle Art of Beach Combing

Shauna Teaken - Sunday, February 07, 2016

 


Ever taken a 'Passion Test'?

You know those questionnaires designed to help you find out what job or career you're best suited for?

You start by listing all the things you adore doing and go from there.

Trouble is, Beachcombing was always top of my list. Wandering along a (preferably) deserted beach at low tide, picking up shells, beach glass and whatever treasures the tide has washed up is my ideal space/place. I've found coins, seahorses, a lobster (below!) even giant sea turtles (dead, sadly) washed up.

I always think "What treasures will the sea gift me today that nobody else will find?"

This activity gives me the connectedness with the earth, the sea, the sky and the space to be me that I crave.


Two things about it, though -

How the heck do you make a career out of that? How much actual time can you spend walking on the beach - I mean, seriously?


Shauna Sells Sea Shells by the Seashore?

I could cover little boxes with shells, make wind-chimes out of driftwood, or maybe learn to paint seascapes. Gorgeous, but do-able?

I have a confession to make - I have actually made the sea change twice in my life. Sold up. Once to quite a remote place where I could go beach combing and never see another person at all. I got horribly bored. I found amazing stuff, though.

And now I don't get to the beach so often. But I have become a beachcomber in a different way. The earth gifts to you in a city, on a bus, anywhere!

So now, not just when I can get away to the beach and not specifically as a business, but as part of the business of enjoying living.

I ask everyday - what amazing treasures does today have for me?

And, what would it take to be the energy of sky, sea and spaciousness in any moment?

What interesting flotsam and jetsam can wash up on my shore today?

For me, a 'ruined' shell, even a dead sea creature has beauty. A broken piece of a lemonade bottle becomes green sea glass, worn by the sea to a smooth loveliness.

Here's a bowl of some more of my finds. Nothing perfect here!

And life is constantly throwing us imperfect treasures - people, trees, events, animals, things. Noticing them is a gift, both to you and them!

I can pick and choose what I put in my collection! I can have gratitude for that iridescent lobster, so freshly sparkling at my feet, and my day and my being expands. Thank you, beautiful!

So what thing do you adore doing, that maybe you've judged as impractical, time wasting or not a contribution to your life, body and money flows, that if you indulged the feel of it, might change everything?

Where do you see the beauty and magnificence that other people miss?
What would it take to have the energy of that special activity in any moment?

I recorded this quick Energy Exercise Class especially for you - 'The Space Of Sky & Sea' - (kind of a guided meditation) that might do the trick! (7 minutes)

What would it take to begin asking: What amazing treasures can I find today?

Would an Infinite Being Get a Hangover?

Shauna Teaken - Monday, December 21, 2015

No!!!!! so why should we?

Christmas should be about having a great time enjoying the pleasures of life – food, drink, friends , family, parties, dinners and holidays. It often isn’t!! It can be super stressful and busy and not happy for our bodies at all.

So how to enjoy the pleasures without the pains?

I love Gary Douglas’ of Access Consciousness take on enjoying living – and it’s become my target – what if the point of having a body was to enjoy all this wonderful earth has to offer – and that includes the silly season?

If you are willing to be in tune with your body and the earth, a different possibility for peace and happiness is created for everybody.

So here’s some simple steps that could make your Xmas season not only more enjoyable, but also contribute to ‘peace on earth’.

  • Take time to be outdoors, and connect with the earth, the trees, the sky. This could be having your morning cuppa outside on the patio. Expand out and breathe!
  • Do some movement your body loves – it doesn’t have to be huge – walking, dancing in your lounge room, swimming. Bodies are perpetual motion machines and thrive on movement!
  • Make a choice “I’m not eating any food that’s not orgasmic!” I said ORGASMIC not ORGANIC! This means asking your body before eating what it would like!
  • Enjoy ‘hunger’ – sometimes bodies don’t require food at all! What we call hunger is often times energy moving – bodies like that spaciousness. You have to ask your body, because “hungry’ doesn’t always mean food is required. Many times your body may prefer a drink – a juice, smoothie or water. ASK!
  • When you eat, take a bite and savour it – allow those conscious molecules of the food to delight and tantalise your mouth. Have three mouthfuls of each food on your plate, and be aware of each one. You may be surprised to find that 9 or 12 mouthfuls are all you require! If the food you’re eating is truly orgasmic for your body – it satisfies!
  • With wine or beer or other alcohol, enjoy the taste until it changes, and then stop. The minute it tastes not good, stop drinking. It’s your body letting you know that’s enough.

If you do over indulge, thank your body for putting up with you, and then become aware of the edges of your energy and expand out. Allow your energy to go beyond the room you’re in, way, way out. The more you expand, the more oneness and communion with the earth you’ll be and the more ease your body can have.

What would it take to have more fun this Xmas than any so far?
