One of the 5 aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing is Movement. I prefer the word ‘movement’ to the word ‘exercise’ for numerous reasons, not least of all because the word ‘exercise’ seems to polarise people into 2 groups - Those who love it and can’t live without it, and Those who hate it and see it one of life’s many evils that they try to ignore as much as possible. Also the fact is that the human body is designed to move. It’s not necessarily designed to do 5 HIIT classes a week but it’s definitely not designed to sit at a desk 8 hours a day and sit in a car or on a train for 1 hour either side of that. One of the many problems with the modern western lifestyle is that it involves very little movement and as a result the population is becoming more and more unhealthy, with lifestyle factors a major contributor to increasing chronic disease levels. As I write this, we are in the midst (well really just the beginning according to the experts) of the COVID-19 Pandemic and this is having a huge impact on human movement. Many, many people are being asked or required to #stayhome. Gyms, sports clubs and even playgrounds have been closed. From what I observe in my local area I see MANY more people than

For many people in the modern Western world there is a great big disconnect in their ability to see themselves as spiritual beings as well as physical bodies. This really means that most of us are walking around with imbalance in the energy centre that is associated with soulfulness and connection - the 7th Chakra, or Crown Chakra. Some common physical or emotional signs and symptoms of 7th Chakra imbalance are: acute or dulled sense of pain neurological issues numbness having the looks and energy of someone much older or younger than you are sensitivity to surroundings abnormal day/ night patterns headache or migraine pineal gland issues If these are things that you are regularly dealing with in your physical life then you might like to consider bringing back some more balance into the Crown of your energy. This video will give you further insight into how to tell if you do have an imbalanced 7th Chakra and also what to do about it if you do!

I much prefer to talk about intentions for the new year, rather than resolutions! The word 'intention' to me has a much deeper, internal, more feminine energy than 'resolution', which sounds so external and hard! The best time for writing intentions for the new year is arguably with the first new moon of the year - as this energy always supports us to the sow the seeds of what we want to reap in the future. I recommend a 3 list approach to writing your intentions for the new year, I discuss this approach in this video and also the full Blog, which was published by Sivana East. I also suggest taking a very holistic approach of looking at your life with regards to what intentions you want to set. To make this easier you might like to consider the Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing aspects of Food, Movement, Sleep, Surroundings and Being. Our first Yin Yoga, Meditation and Reiki Circle of 2019 will give you the opportunity to truly release what is no longer serving you, providing the space to bring in what you want to bring in for the year. May 2019 bring you Peace & Freedom, Love & Happiness and Health & Wellbeing!
