THURSDAY JUNE 28TH
42 Valentine Rd
To the world around you; you're slaying life.
There've been some distractions that have knocked you out of orbit.
You've finally made it to the finish line and you're wondering what's next?
I see you; scrolling, scrolling, scrolling....
Looking for the missing piece to your puzzle.
I hate to break it to you but the answer isn't going to pounce on you through your phone screen.
The epiphany that you're waiting for isn't on Instagram or in a How-To blog post.
Your intuition is patiently waiting for you to listen up.
We've got a full moon in Capricorn incoming and it's all about pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE on the whirlwind of comparison that's had you in a spin.
It's time to catch your breath.
Are you ready to put some fresh coordinates in to sat-nav?
Just because you've got what you've asked for doesn't mean that you can't change your mind or tweak a few things.
It's never too late to refine your cosmic order.
You arrive at She's Lost Control; you almost walked past it because it's tucked away from the hustle of Hackney. As soon as you walk through the door; the heady smell of incense alerts your senses that you're in the right place. You take a deep breath and feel your shoulders begin to release the tension that you've been carrying all day.
Wolf Sister welcomes you and you're shown where to put your belongings. Without hesitation your phone's set to flight-mode and it's buried in your bag. This is your time; you do not want to be disturbed. The room is set in a circle with comfy cushions and blankets; you're already thinking of how you can bring some of these mystical vibes into your home. Once you're seated and the rest of the group has arrived Wolf Sister introduces herself and talks about the Capricorn full moon and how it can affect us. She's right. You've been feeling some intense feelings lately. She invites the rest of the group to introduce themselves; it's totally informal and relaxed. There's zero pressure to share too much and you feel a sense of relief once you've had your turn. It actually felt good to speak; nothing like the cringey introductions when you've had to do in team trainings with work. Maybe you've found your tribe?
Over the course of the evening there are three sections: a simple meditation where you clear your energy and start to feel more grounded. There's a practice where you reflect on the last six months and how you want to move forward. You're surprised at the clarity of what's coming through for you. The pieces of the puzzle are coming together. After that, Wolf Sister introduces you to the Despacho ceremony, it's a shamanic ritual - an offering of gratitude to Mother Earth. You're guided through the ceremony and you take your time choosing from a selection of flowers, herbs, and other offerings, to craft your own despacho. In your hands you hold a small bundle of magic that contains all of your wishes for the next six months; you're already feeling excited about the things that you want to put into action. Before the ceremony closes, you're invited to pull an oracle card; you smile to yourself because it's as if the card has just read your mind.
There's magic in the air. You can feel it.
By 9pm you can't believe that the night's gone so quickly. You'd forgotten that it was possible to feel this calm and clear. You float home and fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow. It's been a full moon to remember.
