From London to LA with Love: Back to reality and the Laws of Love....

Ambi Sitham

Hello lovely souls who read my posts…. please excuse the slight delay but here is the next installment of my 2012 blog which details the beginning of my love affair with LA in 2011.

It really is a trip to be re-reading this blog….AND for those of you who may be wondering about my book, the Laws of Love, yes I wrote it, but it ended up being a slightly different version of what I originally envisioned (focusing more on the spiritual laws of love than the legal)…

So, yes, I am sat on 70,000 plus words of life lessons about love and relationships, but more on that another time…

Until then, I hope you enjoy the latest installment!

I arrived back in London to grey skies and drizzle fairly typical of March in London but the kind of weather that would normally would send me straight into post holiday blues, yet I was quite happy.

No amount of rain could rain on my parade.

I was so beyond excited by my decision to go to LA for a few months and my mind was buzzing with all the practicalities I had to deal with, oh and of course telling my loved ones.

I was dreading telling my Mum. I knew she would think I had lost the plot. The only phone call with news my Mum wanted was that I had settled with a good guy and she could expect marriage and babies imminently.

This news was the antithesis and I could tell would lurch her into the mother of all lectures as well as a complete panic that I would end up being a spinster/would never provide her with any grandchildren.

I thought I would spare myself by telling my best friend Sal and my older brother first. 

 Sal  (far right) and I on our dear friend Sam's ‘hag’ night (he is in the middle).   Sal is po faced as she was pregnant with her second daughter and had to sit and watch us all get plastered. And then drive me home. Ha!

Sal and I have been best buddies since we were 11 years old and are more family than friends. I knew she would be excited for me and her enthusiasm would help me deal with my family or rather, my Mum. I called Sal as soon as I got into my flat. She was excited and ready to hear Oscar news and celeb gossip but was totally unprepared for me to instead go into a million miles an hour speech at how I had been in a rut for the last 18 months and was bored stiff of my life in London and was now going to LA for a three month sabbatical but possibly for longer.

As I finished my speech literally gasping for air, I waited for the congratulations, squealing and excitement and instead there was silence.

And then eventually in a teary, heavy voice she said, "I am happy for you, I think you are doing the right thing following your gut instinct - you have always done it before with big life decisions and it has always paid off - even when we all thought you were crazy....but, well I am gutted for me, I can't bear the thought of you ending up living on the other side of the world".

My heart sank. She was at work and couldn't really talk properly so we decided we would meet up to catch up properly.

More than just a bit perturbed by her reaction I then called my brother.

Thank goodness for my brother.

My clever, witty, kind, generous big brother/part time Dad, permanent piss taker (I think every girl with the potential to be spoiled needs a big brother to take the proverbial and make sure her feet stay on the ground) sometimes my banker (whoops) but always, above everything else, my best friend.

Never judgmental, always practical and as cliched as it sounds the rock in my life without whom I would not be who, or where I am today. 

 My big brother, by my side so I didn't fall as a toddler busy fake  conducting the orchestra to music only I could hear. The rest of the family just had to guess which song by my master conducting. FYI it was Grease, not sure of which track but I was (still am) obsessed with the  movie and entire soundtrack.

FYI it was Grease, not sure of which track but I was (still am) obsessed with the movie and entire soundtrack.

After the predictable questions (and him approving my answers) on practicalities and finances he said the golden words I needed to hear to go forward happily, "Go for it".

I could hear the half smile in his voice even on the telephone and I knew I had his blessing.

Next was Mum.

The phone call went as expected. She was upset and confused. And felt the need to remind me every two minutes that I was not in my twenties and if I ever wanted to have children I had better focus on finding someone and settling down; not gallivanting and taking a sabbatical.

I took it all on the chin but it's never easy to feel like you are upsetting or disappointing a parent.

And as certain as I was of my decision some of the things she said definitely pricked at my LA bubble and let little seeds of doubt seep in. After our call I sat drained, jet lagged and suddenly feeling a bit teary about everything.

My mum's words rang in my ears - what was I going to do in LA? Other than take a sabbatical, have a rest and explore a new city? And then it hit me.

For nearly two years I had been talking about writing a book. After yet another television appearance to talk legalities of the latest celebrity split my good friend Catherine (a best selling author and general cool chick) had said to me, "You should write a book on love and the law". Following her suggestion I had fleshed out the idea and even had a title "The Laws of Love" introduction and contents page, but not much else had happened. There was very little time in the grind of my London life to actually sit down and write. If I did ever have any spare time I was so exhausted and drained I could do little more than sit in front of the television or I would try and fit in a massage or facial. Partly because I worked so hard, partly because I loved to make time for everyone in my life (and there were probably too many people in my life but more on that later).

The end result was that I actually had very little time to myself: let alone time to actually start writing my book. But here was my golden opportunity. Suddenly I began to see that this LA sabbatical was a gift from above. In so many different ways..but more on that later.

Here is the introduction below to the Laws of Love in case you want to know a bit more...

THE LAWS OF LOVE – A USER’S GUIDE FOR WOMEN IN LOVE


INTRODUCTION

Women are romantics. In our quest for true love we often turn a blind eye to any number of character defects. Nearly every woman over the age of 25 has had her heart broken at some point. It’s part of life. But as I, and my friends, got older I recognised that heart-break became the least of the relationship woes. In this age of internet dating and social networking, many of my friends have found that their privacy has been jeopardised by their potential partners. As relationships became more serious we often moved in with our partners — and found ourselves left with responsibility for his bills and a damaged credit rating when the love affair ended. Modern women who are in happy and loving relationships are faced with a host of issues that were unknown in earlier days. For instance, when a woman earns more money than her partner, it can save untold amounts of stress if they settle upfront the division of household labour and its running costs. When a relationship ends, either through a break-up or death of a loved one, the pain can be made worse by ignorance of the law.  I should know. Being the only lawyer in my circle of girlfriends I have been on the receiving end of more than a few teary phone calls.

When I first conceived the idea for this book I was 31 years old, newly single and nursing the very painful fallout post the break-up of a long term relationship. I decided that women need a book that points out the potential pitfalls of relationships — not just the emotional ones but the legal and financial ones.

Reading this book is not going to land you your knight on a charger, it isn’t a book littered with dating tips on how to date like a French woman, or to use ‘The Rules’ to snare your man etc. Whilst those books are entertaining and contain some valuable nuggets on playing the dating game that’s not what the book is about. What this book will provide you with are the Spiritual Laws and the Legal Laws of love for each stage of a relationship, the kind of wise and practical advice I wish an older me had given the younger me back in the day.

The Spiritual Laws are filled with pearls of wisdom I have extracted through my own experiences of life and love and that of friends and family. It includes advice and information handed down from grandmothers, mothers, aunts and elder siblings as well as relationship counsellors, therapists and religious and spiritual mentors. These may not be legal laws enshrined in statute or case law but they are well established laws of love which many of us wish we had access to many years ago. I have combined this advice to provide spiritual laws of the universe that I believe will equip you emotionally and spiritually to avoid the emotional damage that can occur in a relationship. From choosing a partner, to deciding where to live, whether to get married, or whether to stop working, women would be better off if they could keep these spiritual laws in mind.

The Legal Laws are filled with the information I have unfortunately had to give my girlfriends and clients all too frequently when they find themselves in sticky romantic situations. It’s the nitty-gritty about what you need to know to protect your privacy, your money, your health, your reputation and, by extension, your sense of self-worth.

Because some of the best lessons we learn are from each other, each section is filled with case studies. Some of them are cases that made it to court and set legal precedents and some are the true life stories of me and my friends.  I hope they’ll stick in your head and set off warning bells if a similar situation arises in your own life. I want women to go forth in their love life armed with all the information they’ll need to find fun, happiness, financial and emotional security and most of all, love.


From London to LA with love: London, stuck in a rut with you....

Ambi Sitham

Hello dear souls who find your way to my website and find yourself reading this blog.

Times they are a changing and I am finding myself called to share more about my journey of alchemy and deep transformation which started over a decade ago in January 2008.

In truth I think I am writing and sharing more for myself as a form of self-expression which I have stifled for a long time but I am now unable to ignore.

I hope too that sharing my journey may also help others on their paths of transformation.

As I recently celebrated six years of living in the city of angels I stumbled upon an old blog which I started mid 2012 and documents my move to Los Angeles.

The blog was entitled 'From London to LA with Love' and was inspired by the emails I sent to a select bunch of good friends during my initial three month sabbatical in Los Angeles in the summer of 2011.

And this is the 'bio' of sorts that I wrote to accompany the (now defunct) blog.

A true story in real time. A seemingly sane (yet clearly cuckoo, that's moi!) professional young woman from London who after a random dream, decided to move to LA, uprooting her entire life in the process.

This blog documents the ensuing journey I went on (am still on) emotionally, spiritually, romantically and professionally and the transition from living in London to my new life in La La land.

I felt inspired to share it all with you and wow is reading it again bringing back so many feels...

So here it is...

Part One: London, stuck in a rut with you....

 

January 2011

Life in London was good.

But the truth is that something was missing and it had been for a while.

On the surface I could tick so many of the boxes that people regularly have as their checklist for happiness. I was healthy and financially stable. I had a wonderful flat near to close friends and family whom I saw often. I had a packed and fun social life.

I hadn't yet found that special person but I was having a lot of fun interviewing... and I had total faith that Mr X and that happy ever after ending would come at the right point in my life.

Things were good. Apart from this underlying feeling that something was missing and a restlessness that I couldn't shake off with a fun date or new crush, weekend break or a new course.

And the truth is that I had been feeling slightly off since September 2009 - a mere six months after I had bought my flat.

At a time when I was living the life I had always thought I had wanted I couldn't stop the little voice inside that told me that I wasn't living the life I should be.

I tried to quieten it by looking harder around me for people or things to get passionate about.

But I couldn't find the solution anywhere. So I carried on maintaining the status quo whilst always looking out for whatever it may be that I was missing.

However I couldn't help but feel like a hamster on a wheel and the truth is that deep down inside I was pretty miserable.

And then everything came  to a head in January 2011.

Unlike many people who find January a depressing month I always found the new year an exciting time; the whole year ahead of you, so many adventures and dreams to be discovered - a time to be planting seeds for everything you wanted your year to be.

But this year was different. I felt apathetic and jaded - almost unheard of for me.

As I stood on the tube sweltering in my winter coat I looked at the man in front of me who had taken his coat off and wore a t-shirt on with writing on the back that said, 'Been there, seen it, done it'.

At this exact moment the Stereophonics song 'Stuck in a Rut' came on my ipod. 

 

 Excuse the grainy picture....taken by my then blackberry, or crackberry as I used to like to call it! Remember those?!

Excuse the grainy picture....taken by my then blackberry, or crackberry as I used to like to call it! Remember those?!

As I stared at the words on the man's t-shirt and with the words of the song in my ears I felt my face flush as my eyes pricked with tears and before I knew it I was 'that girl'.

You know that girl you see with tears streaming down her face on the tube with her earphones in and you presume is crying over some guy.

Well that was me.

Apart from the fact that I was crying, and dare I say mourning, for myself.

Here are the lyrics of the Stereophonics song: -

 

You make do with your lot,
You got a choice to make,
You gotta follow your gut,
Your heads in a state,
You're stuck in a rut,
You're wasting days,
Time don't wait so..

Make your choice either go or stay
What you got in your heart is dying every day
You're scared to let go though your mind is made
Just pack your soul and don't stay

You're feeling down and low
You're dreaming of how it should feel,
Staying will set your soul on fire,
You're stuck in a rut and your life is forgotten.

It's only a house don't make it a home
Are you a man or a mouse?
You gotta walk it alone
It's time to let go, get on with the show
The clock is ticking

What you've got is long gone
Draw a line in the sand
Your poker face is shot
I can see through your hand
Stop lying to yourself
Gotta make new plans
Time don't wait for no man

You're feeling down and low
You're dreaming of how it should feel
Staying will set your soul on fire

 

As I got off the tube, trying to hide my face in shame from the sympathetic glances of onlookers, I resolved that somehow I would shake my life up.

My mind raced from all range of possibilities from moving out to the suburbs and getting a bigger place, to going to Thailand for a month's working holiday with a charity, to a yoga retreat in Ibiza.

I was soon home (the joys of living a stone's throw from the tube station) and I sat down with a cup of tea and stared out at the Anthony Gormley statue which stood firmly on top of the building opposite my apartment complex and was my constant companion.

 Gormley’s dark figure is entitled  You  and some commentators have said that he gives the impression to onlookers of being squeezed into a tight urban surrounding, perhaps a comment on London life....

Gormley’s dark figure is entitled You and some commentators have said that he gives the impression to onlookers of being squeezed into a tight urban surrounding, perhaps a comment on London life....

And then my phone buzzed. With a message from a good friend.

Would I like to join him and a bunch of our lovely friends for a fun long weekend in LA for Oscars weekend?

My flights were taken care of and all I needed to bring was my wardrobe of choice and my party mojo...

For the first time in ages I felt quite excited. This trip clearly wasn't the solution to my lost soul but maybe a fun, glamorous weekend away with this gang would give my mojo a much needed boost.

Little did I know what that trip would spark.

But you know what they say about things happening when you least expect it...

Part two is coming next week.....so stay tuned if you'd like :)

September 2018: Seasons change and so do we

Ambi Sitham

IMG_7511.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy September!

Here we are in the ninth month of the year preparing to say goodbye to Summer and readying ourselves to embrace the new season of Fall.

September 2018 brings an end to eclipse season.

Whilst the last eclipse of 2018 was on August 11th (a partial solar eclipse in Leo) the lunation (lunar cycle following an eclipse) takes us through to the next New Moon.

Eclipses often take a few weeks to be activated and therefore felt in our lives and sometimes it can take a good month for them to be fully actualized.

September will fully wrap up eclipse season and in doing so should offer a more grounded, stable energy as we prepare to embrace Fall and a new season of life.

The Soulstrology theme for this month is to embrace a new season of ourselves.

Just as the seasons are changing in the physical world, so too there is a season that is shifting within us.

Some of you may be well aware of this.

You may be able to feel it quite viscerally and know that you are embarking not only upon a new season of life, but also a new season of you.

Perhaps for others it is less obvious.

Yes the seasons are changing around you, but perhaps you are unsure of what this means for you.

We must all know that just as the seasons change, so do we.

Our personalities change, our preferences - likes, dislikes, our quirks, our dreams.

Almost everything changes over time and as things change, so do we.

And as we change, we adjust the sails and so our lives change.

Change is the only constant and although it makes people very uncomfortable (including yours truly) if we can embrace impermanence and learn to dance with the winds of change, we will experience fulfillment.

It may not look like what we expected, it may take us way off our 'life plan', but ultimately it will serve the evolution of our soul and what we are supposed to experience in this lifetime.

So this month as the seasons change, let us give ourselves the gift of allowing ourselves to change.

And as we change internally, so too, like a mirror, our lives will begin to shift on the external plane.

Mantra of the month:

I know that change begins with me, and that if I want to change my life, I need to change myself first

I allow myself to change, even if it feels uncomfortable, scary, or raises eyebrows

I accept the emerging next version of myself

I embrace this new season of me, for all that it is and all it will bring me

May we each have the courage to allow ourselves to continually evolve, to accept impermanence and to embrace changing ourselves, to change our lives.

Wishing you all a month of sweet, soulful shifts.

Love,

Ambi x

HIGH FIVES! August 2018 five faves

Ambi Sitham

IMG_7243.PNG

Hello lovely people! 

Wowie what a month it has been…..I literally feel as though it has been six months since my last (and first ever!) HIGH FIVES blog post.

That mid-July eclipse…woah! 

It’s been a month of twists and turns and ultimately GINORMOUS (I think that is a word, right, like a mix between giant and enormous?!) shifts. 

It has been a rollercoaster (and it continues, let's just say this next lunar cycle is going to be FULL!), but I couldn’t be happier and I am looking forward to sharing more in time to come…

In the meantime I am honoring the whispering of my soul to take some time out, to be truly present and engaged in this process of alchemy.

So I am taking a little time offline (I am actually aiming for no more than two hours per week on the internet/computer full stop during the next two weeks!) and a full Instagram break between the lunar cycles.

I will be back on the 'gram' on Friday August 24th :)

Onward, here are five of my highlights from the last lunar cycle.

1. Oh hi, Ojai…

On the day of the July solar eclipse we decamped to Ojai where we spent a few days eating the best food, drinking my favorite local red wine, cycling around the quaint little town, playing tennis (him) and bathing in the natural hot springs (me). It was EXACTLY what the doctor ordered and on point for the Cancer solar eclipse. I will be writing all about the trip some other time with all of my Ojai recommendations. Until then I leave you with this photo of me in utter bliss in the best hot tub nestled in the garden of Mother Nature.

IMG_0925.jpg

 

2. Get your (V) steam on!

I used to have regular v steams for a while and found them deeply relaxing (with a kinda regal element to them!) and they helped regulate my hormones and my cycle. As per so many other things that are good for me, I somehow got out of the habit of going regularly but in the last month I have been twice and my body seems happier as a result. 

Yep, I know Gwynny gets a bashing for this and so may I, but who cares, this is my truth and it works for me and who knows, maybe it will work for you?! I go to Tikkun Spa in Santa Monica and make the most of their wonderful salt, clay, sauna and steam rooms to get my sweat on, detox and chill - pre and post V steam.

3. Honey, sweet honey

With all the crazy twists and turns I have been expending a lot of energy and have been fighting off fatigue. I am not a big caffeine drinker (literally only have two cups of black tea a day) so I couldn't rely on caffeine as a pick me up. So in true retro style I REverted to my old tried and trusted pick me up which is this delicious honey. This isn’t your average honey. It is created for the development of the Queen Bee (Bee not Bey, but I guess Bey’s equal in the bee world!) and is power packed full of B vitamins, antibacterial properties, enzymes  and is said to treat everything from asthma to hormonal issues, PMS, insomnia, fatigue and a whole heap of other ailments. I take a quarter to half a teaspoon one hour after waking before sipping on my first caffeinated tea of the day. I don’t put it in my tea because the heat is said to reduce the potency of the royal jelly plus I like how it tastes and have gotten into the habit of that little taster of honey before my tea. It’s helped me so much during this busy month and I swear my skin is looking better too….(apparently it helps produce collagen naturally - win win!)

4. Creating space

We are having a serious declutter. Putting things into storage. Donating. Recycling.

You get the picture.

This is not easy when you are married to a Cancerian hoarder but I am cracking my Virgo rising whip because I want our home (and our energy fields!) to be clutter free.

Clear, calm space = clear, calm mind - in my world.

As part of this decluttering process I am rereading this feng shui tidying up book. I read it a couple of years ago but I really needed to re-read it (in true REtrograde style!)

I know the author gets a bashing for some of her musings and approaches, but I say, take what resonates and works for you and leave the rest!

As we navigate the last eclipse, mass retrogrades and approach the last month of Summer I highly recommend a clean out/purge and this book really helps! 

5. Writing is therapy

I love writing. I find it so therapeutic and have done since I was a little girl. Although my grammar and punctuation is often way off, I feel I can truly express my heart through my words, even if it isn’t always as polished as I would like it to be. I have so many journals it is insane! I love buying them as gifts for people and I am always gifting myself new journals. I bought this journal for my fellow Sagittarian father in law and he loves it. I love the entire range of journals from this designer which are high quality, yet reasonably priced. Who knows, maybe one of these days I will actually dive back into the journal I dedicated to working through this classic by Julia Cameron. One day I will finish... I am a work in progress, as always....

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed my high fives and I would love to hear any of your highlights from the last lunar month - from the deep and meaningful to the simple and seemingly superficial - it's all alchemy!

Wishing you all a terrific Thursday and a peaceful couple of pre-eclipse days! 

Love,

August 2018: A time to reflect....

Ambi Sitham

august2018.PNG

Hello lovely ones and happy August!

Phew these eclipses....I hope you are all surviving it ok...

For those of you in LA or visiting, please come join me (and my gongs) this Friday for a Soulstrology Soundbath at Wanderlust in Hollywood.

In a nod to current celestial craziness I will be bringing Mercury, Pluto and Earth gongs as well as a ton of quartz crystal bowls and my beautiful chimes!

It's gonna be a healing and relaxing evening so if you are feeling the feels come join me for a cosmic reiki infused chill fest.

Onwards to this month of August...and the Soulstrology theme of reflection.

The celestial currents are still strong in August with Mercury already in retrograde motion and Uranus set to join the gang of retrograde planets, making a sum total of six planets in retrograde!

We are also still very much in the midst of eclipse season with the the rumblings from July's Cancer solar eclipse and total lunar eclipse in Aquarius still reverberating in our lives.

However due to all the retrogrades (and another eclipse mid month) we may not be able to see things clearly for a while to come, probably until September.

September has always felt to me a time of fresh starts and new beginnings.

I don't know whether it is because I am a Virgo rising (think you guys know I very much resonate with Virgo traits!) and it is Virgo season for a large part of September, or because it is a time when I used to go back to school or university (oh so many moons ago!)

Either way September is always a notable month for me.

It's always the turning point for me in any calendar year as though it sets me up for the final season of that year and what it was supposed to bring me.

It always feels a time for fresh starts and new beginnings.

As a result August has always been a more reflective, restful month for me.

A time of retreat and reflection before I embark on a new chapter.

This month my reflective approach to Augusts seem to be in tune with the cosmos.

Despite what the eclipses may have thrown up for us (perhaps we may feel as though we are in the throes of sudden change sparked by the eclipses) this is a very important month of reflection, rest and renewal before we embark on a new chapter in September.

With all those planets in retrograde we need to learn the power of stillness and reflection before we can truly move forward.

But perhaps you are fearful as you think that your world has been turned upside down by the eclipses. Or maybe you just feel discombobulated, or a sense of uncertainty and unease with so much up in the air.

Either way, try ride out any discomfort trusting that things will settle, as will life, come the Fall.

I encourage you all to take time to yourselves this month, to do everything RE a la mercury retrograde - REflect, REset, REconsider, REview, REconcile, REstart...you get the picture!

Make sure REst is in there too ;)

Mantra of the month:

I trust that stillness and reflection are tools of alchemy and manifesting.

I embrace the opportunity to slow down.

To take a breath, to rest and reflect.

I welcome the unknown and embrace uncertainty knowing that when nothing is certain, anything is possible

May we all have the courage to stand still and reflect and allow our reflections to guide us to the next season.

Wishing you all a restful, reflective and regenerative month.

Love,

Ambi x

Hint - everything rose is giving me life!

Hello lovely ones and happy Wednesday!

Now, I am embracing a different season of life and way of sharing alchemy so I have a new monthly blog which will will come out just before the New Moon each month, in which I will be sharing five of my highlights from the previous lunar month.

I hope that by sharing new things I am doing, or new products I have discovered, I am living out some of my alchemy journey with you in real time and it may inspire you on your journey.

So here are my HIGH FIVES of the last month!

1) Healing, receiving, and letting that shit go - literally

As many of you will know I am a Reiki master and energy healer but I formally stopped these sessions Fall. I have been embracing a new chapter of life since getting married a year ago and have felt as though my energy needed to be directed more inwards to myself, or to my immediate loved ones,  than externally.

This month I also realized that it was time for me to receive some healing too. So I went for it! In this space of three days I had a reiki session with the powerful reiki master and special soul Ali Werner, a mayan abdominal massage and v-steam with the incredible Marcia Lopez of Women's True Healing, and a 'closed' colon hydrotheraphy session with the amazing Nina (who did 15 minutes of reiki and crystal healing on me before the actual colonic) of Iyasu Colonics.

I literally feel like a different person. It's kind of insane! I have realized how much I also need to heal, receive and be energetically, physically and spiritually cleansed regularly. I cannot recommend the above ladies more highly. I am promoting them out of pure love, respect and gratitude - they are amazing and if you need to let some shit go (literally), some reproductive wellness and healing, or just to be energetically cleansed, aligned and filled back up - these are your ladies in LA! And if you don't live in LA maybe reach out to these ladies to ask for their recommendations where you live and/or let this inspire you to seek out your own healing and aligning journey.

2) Summertime reading

I guess a kind of polar opposite to the healing and cleansing is that I have recently felt quite turned off by self-help books. This is VERY unusual for me. Since my spiritual journey started 10 years ago, I have barely read anything but self-help, spiritual, religious, mystical, metaphysical books. But in the last month or so I have just not been feeling it. So in line with Cancer season I have been following my feels and the truth is that I have been craving some light fluffy entertainment which is also well written. Enter Kevin Kwan. I devoured this book of his - the first of a trilogy - which is a light but oh so fun and captivating read. The second part of the trilogy is on its way to me and I already can't wait to read it and then the final installment. My goal is to read them all before the movie of the first book comes out in August!

3) The heart wants what it wants

And my heart has been craving all things rose....so I have been honoring that and these are the products which have been helping me.

  • I am obsessed with this healing rose balm which works amazingly well anywhere on your body - lips, cuticles, dry patches - and is small enough to fit in your purse.

  • These rose incense sticks give me life. I used to use them in healing sessions all the time. I would light them before a client arrived to infuse the aroma of rose into my space and to set the tone for a heart centered healing session. Now I am using them for myself, when I wake up and write my morning pages.

  • I found these rose sandalwood incense cubes which also contain frankincense, Siam balsam, sandalwood, myrrh, iris roots, as well as rose oil. They smell heavenly and are a lovely alternative to traditional incense sticks.

  • These edible organic, non GMO rose petals and buds are going in everything from my smoothies, to my baths, I am making rose water and buckets of rose tea. I am basically soon to be a rose!

  • Finally, in this insane LA heatwave this cooling rosewater and aloe face spray is helping me stay fresh and calm. As soon as I smell the rose aroma I feel instantly calmer about my lack of air conditioning (yes really, we have no air con!) and it's a great toner. I am keeping it in the fridge so it is nice and refreshing when I spray it.

4) Bloom Yellow

I don't know if many of you know about the Yellow Conference but I discovered it in 2014  - after my annus horribilis of 2013 - and attended their inaugural conference in August of that year which was exactly what the doctor ordered. Think three days of inspiration from creative, conscious entrepreneurs - meeting the kindest souls, the best goodie bag and walking away feeling enthused and inspired about the solopreneur life and creative projects (many of which were ideas of mine back in 2014 but have taken until now to come to fruition!). I attended again in 2015 but skipped 2016 and 2017 - because - life. But the two times I attended I have felt like I have bloomed afterwards. I like the Yellow Co's tagline/hashtag which is #bloomyellow as it is on point.

This year I felt called to go but then talked myself out of it and then was still umming and ahhing but somewhat torn. I have no idea why, I think it's a bit like the receiving healing where I feel a bit indulgent and almost a bit guilty. My husband basically told me I was crazy and I should go. Not that I needed his approval, but his encouragement helped me stop faffing and get my ticket. So I will be going (it's in August) and I am so excited! Three days of empowerment, education and inspiration - for and by creative, entrepreneurial women to become agents of good. Yes please! It's so nice to have something to look forward to and I am so excited as to what inspiration I will receive not only for further creative projects but also for how I can give back even more (a huge theme of the Yellow Co).

5) Capturing moments forever

When we went to our friends wedding last Fall they had a mini polaroid camera and lots of film, the idea being guests could take pictures as momentos and stick some in a guest book with a little note for the happy couple. It was such a fun and sweet idea and we got loads of lovely pics of us from the day which we have put in the teeniest little frames and are dotted around our apartment. We borrowed their camera for our wedding and and it was SO fun for us and our guests. So we decided to get our own because as much as snapping photos on our phones are great there is something so fun about having a physical print as an immediate (and permanent) record of a beautiful memory. I realized how much I get out of looking at these little pictures of us and our family and friends and how much happiness it brings to me, it's just different than staring at images on a phone. There is something timeless and exquisite about a film picture, plus polaroids are just uber flattering without being filtered or edited. And who doesn't want that?! This is the camera we bought along with the cutest vintage style case. I am looking forward to capturing many sweet moments this summer and beyond. I will no doubt share many of them and have a feeling both my Instagram and future blogs will be peppered with polaroids going forwards :)

I hope you enjoyed reading about my high fives from this last lunar cycle and that perhaps it inspires you in some way to create some high fives in your life.

Maybe it's healing, maybe it's booking a course or workshop or trip, maybe it's reading something new or consuming a different product which your body needs, maybe it's working out how to document your life journey more permanently...

Maybe it's something completely different!

The most important thing is that you embrace the new lunar cycle and the opportunity to create some alchemy in your life over the next lunation.

From the deep and meaningful to the simple - it's all alchemy!

I look forward to hearing your high fives :)

Wishing you all an early happy New Moon - may your solar eclipse experience be sizzling in the best possible way!

Love,

Ambi x

 

 

SOULSTROLOGY MEMBERS PODCAST ECLIPSE SEASON JULY 2018

Ambi Sitham

 Eclipse season is here.....tune into the Soulstrology Members podcast to hear how best to navigate it

Eclipse season is here.....tune into the Soulstrology Members podcast to hear how best to navigate it

Hello my lovely Soulstrology Members and happy Sunday!

I hope you are all faring well with July so far.

I don't think I need to tell you that eclipse season is upon us!

The solar eclipse in Cancer is just days away (on the 12/13th July depending on where you live in the world) and two weeks later will be followed up by a total lunar eclipse in Aquarius.

I recorded a little mini members podcast for you all to guide you through eclipse season with the idea being that it helps prepare you for the cosmic currents and helps you to navigate them more consciously and calmly.

Will be back soon with lots more updates as this week we have Venus moving into Virgo, Jupiter turning direct (I am trying to record a video for you all, let's see how that works - ha!) and of course the Cancer solar eclipse.

And PS I set out below the podcast the Soulstrology zodiac guides for both the Cancer solar eclipse and the Aquarius lunar eclipse just so you can familiarize yourselves with the life areas which will be coming under the cosmic spotlight in July's set of eclipses.

Wishing you a happy Sunday.

Love,

Ambi x

July 2018: Turning point

Ambi Sitham

 Welcome to eclipse season....

Welcome to eclipse season....

Hello lovely ones and happy July!

We are officially halfway through the year and about to hit eclipse season.

*And on that note - Los Angelenos and those visiting, please come hang with me at Wanderlust in Hollywood on Friday July 6th for an eclipse season Soulstrology Soundbath to help navigate the month ahead!*

Onwards... it is safe to say that despite the mass planetary retrograde, July 2018 will serve us a turning point for each of us...

Eclipses bring change, regardless of planetary retrogrades.

Even if we don't see the changes immediately, they will be activated this month by the mid month solar eclipse and the end of month lunar eclipse (which is said to be the longest lasting eclipse of the century!)

As a reminder eclipses act as cosmic activators in relation to the life areas ruled by the parts of our charts that they fall in.

This month we will see the beginning of the eclipses in the Cancer/Capricorn family which will see a series of eclipses in the Cancer and Capricorn ruled parts of the zodiac (and our charts) through to 2020.

Cancer in the natural zodiac rules our family, home, domestic life and everything that comes with that - patriotism, childhood memories, loved ones, our domestic/private selves, our homes, extended family and our 'people'.

Regardless of where Cancer rules in our charts, we are all asked to think about these areas of life over the next couple of weeks and leading up to the mid month solar eclipse.

The Aquarius Full Moon at the end of July is a total lunar eclipse and is somewhat ominously referred to as the blood moon (it looks as though the moon turns red) and is said to be the longest lasting eclipse of the century...it will be intense...

In addition to this we have Mars (ruling war, action, leadership, energy, manifesting, sex, desire and more) in retrograde motion dancing right by the South node (past life karma/baggage) of the Moon for most of the month.

Just as the recent Capricorn Full Moon illuminated may have illuminated some old karma to deal with, so too this month brings more of the same...

I don't blame you if you are scrunching your face whilst reading this.

Many of the aspects of the month ahead are fierce, there is no doubt about that.

As a result it is likely to be a disruptive, and even turbulent month for many.

However Soulstrology teaches us that we are not to fear these aspects.

Yes these aspects are intense and can create tension in our lives but they also serve as the catalyst for much needed change.

Ultimately it is up to us as to how we work with the energies of the month ahead to channel them for our highest good.

But either way, whether we are passive, reactive or proactive - whatever we do, or don't do - this month will serve as a significant turning point for 2018.

I like this quote by Pierre Trudeau which is a lovely lens through which to view change and turning points in our lives.

'My life is one long curve, full of turning points'

It is a good quote to keep in mind this month as life may bend bringing turning points which squeeze our senses but ultimately serve us..

Mantra of the month:

I embrace the concept that life is always at some turning point

I trust that whatever changes life brings this month are ultimately the turning points I need to help me to move forward to the next season of life

I choose to be grounded, level headed and peaceful and to nurture myself mind, body and soul so that I can maintain this state of being even in times of flux

I am wishing you all a magical month ahead.

May the turning point this month be just what you need to help you enter the next season of life.

Love,

Ambi x

Our first year of marriage....

Ambi Sitham

Happy one year anniversary to us!

One year ago, we eloped in Las Vegas...

In the oldest chapel in Vegas, we made our vows to love each other for the rest of our lives and formally became husband and wife.

And what a year it has been since...

Four weddings (two of them ours!), a funeral (my beloved Dad), a move (we only moved in together after getting married and I let go of my apartment), professional changes (me letting go of half my practice and starting a podcast and another new venture - him getting a new job), lots of trips, adventures, lessons and shifts...

It hasn't all been easy, by any means.

But the miracle and joy is that our love has deepened with each day and that with all the ups and downs we have not only gotten closer (which I didn't think was possible), but we've also managed to laugh and find comfort in each other on all of the ride...even the white knuckled, grit your teeth, stomach churning parts...

I will be writing more about the deeply transformative journey I have been on because even from the little snippets I share above, I am sure you can understand when I say that on a personal level this last year has been truly life changing...and hey, maybe me sharing my alchemy journey can help someone else reading...

Until then I wanted to share this little video reel from our two weddings and Hawaii honeymoon as well as the below quote (found on Pinterest)  which to me sums up the real love of a soulmate union.

 

They say love is blind. I disagree. Infatuation is blind. Love is all-seeing and accepting. Love is seeing the flaws and blemishes and accepting them. Love is accepting the bad habits and mannerisms, and working around them. Love is recognizing all the fears and insecurities, and knowing your role it to comfort. Love is working through all the challenges and painful times. Infatuation is fragile and will shatter when life is not perfect. Love is strong and it strengthens because it is real.

Cheers to this journey of real love...

Love,

Ambi x

June 2018: Let there be light....

Ambi Sitham

JUNE2018.png

Hello lovely ones and happy June 2018!

For those of you in Los Angeles or visiting, please come join me and my new homie Pluto (plus Jupiter and Earth) this evening at a Soulstrology Soundbath at Wanderlust Hollywood!

Pukka tea are sponsoring this event and everyone gets a nice cuppa to sip on after the soundbath when they are nicely sound stoned (it's a thing, truly!)

It's going to be magical and transformative seeing as it is Pluto's debut so I hope to see you there!

Onwards now to the month of June which sees the longest day of the year for those of us in the northern hemisphere with the Summer Solstice and the official start of Summer.

This month kicks off with some very harmonious celestial aspects, but as always is peppered with challenging ones and ends on a tough note with Mars going retrograde, a Full Moon in Capricorn and the annual Sun/Saturn opposition - think - reality bites...

The Soulstrology theme for June 2018 is 'Let there be Light'.

Just as there will be much physical light this month through the form of sunlight as we embrace Summer, we must also embrace energetic light - love, compassion, optimism and fecundity (my word for 2018!)

There are many situations I am sure in each of our lives, or those of our loved ones and certainly for the world at large which may feel as though they need 'fixing'.

Of course there are certain practical things which we may need to do in order to manage certain situations or to help be part of the solution for our world.

However Soulstrology tells us that this month, alongside taking the necessary practical action, we need to adopt the consciousness,

"I let this be. And I let there be light".

Rather than letting go, let things be.

Trust that letting things be, is letting there be light.

Trust that letting there be light means allowing something bigger than you, or I, to take charge.

Letting there be light, means letting what is for your highest good and the greater good happen knowing that ultimately the outcome will serve all of us.

Letting things be requires surrender of sorts but is not giving up.

Letting things be requires trust, optimism and patience.

This allows the light to be and to infuse the situation at hand and to transform it for the highest good of all.

This can require great faith in the process, which at times can be challenging and not what we desire but does not necessarily reflect the ultimate outcome.

Let it be and let there be light.

Mantra of the month:

I let things be, knowing that this is not giving up, but embracing the process of life

I trust that letting things be,  lets there be light, and that light will prevail to bring the highest good for all involved

I choose to be patient, to have faith and remain optimistic knowing such qualities will help me navigate this month ahead and indeed months to come

I am wishing you all a joyous month.

May each of us let things be, so there may be light, and may each of our lives be infused with that light which also trickles into our beloved world.

So may it be.

Love,

Ambi x

May 2018: Revolution of freedom and abundance. And so it begins...

Ambi Sitham

 YASSSSSSSSS!

YASSSSSSSSS!

 

Hello lovely ones and happy May!

Hopefully this finds you all well and having navigated the Scorpio Full Moon...if you're feeling all the feels and need some inspiration on how to harness the transformative Scorpio energies which affect each of us until November, check out my latest podcast episode on Soundcloud or iTunes.

Onwards now to May 2018 - a very important month which sees cosmic change agent Uranus move out of Aries where he has been since March 2011 and move into Taurus where he will be until 2026.

Uranus rules freedom, progression, change and the future.

In the natural zodiac (which applies to each of us) Taurus rules money and possessions - our personal finances and income, our 'things' which hold value to us and so too our values and self-esteem.

On a more macro level Taurus also rules the banks, financial institutions, currency - indeed the very notes and coins we use to purchase things.

As we have already seen from the cryptocurrency phenomenon, whether everyone is accepting or realizing it or not, money and the form of currency we use, is undergoing a huge revolution.

Now, this month, with Uranus moving into Taurus the seeds are being sown for huge changes to global financial systems, our currencies, how we do business and our economies.

Expect the unexpected over the next nine years.

And in the same way, that we and the world at large will experience sudden changes in all the life areas identified above ruled by Taurus so too we must expect these changes in the life areas ruled by Taurus in our unique charts.

Recording more on this for my Members soon...

In the meantime, the Soulstrology theme for May 2018 is that of a revolution.

A revolution of freedom and abundance.

This month we need to think yes about money, but also about abundance and whether we are living free and liberated and enjoying a rich life. Or not.

But Soulstrology tells us that is the aim of our existence, to enjoy a rich life in all areas.

An abundance of health, love, joy, family, creativity, rest, play as well as material abundance...

So much more to say on this that it has inspired my next podcast episode so stay tuned...

Mantra of the month:

I know that living abundantly is my birthright

I embrace true wealth as living abundantly in all areas of life

I am liberated knowing that I can live abundantly without compromising my values

I open myself up to creating a revolution in how I live and work, knowing I can live and work in a way which means I live a truly rich life

I am wishing you all a marvelous start to May. May we each sow the seeds of freedom and abundance in order to live a truly rich life.

Love,

Ambi x

Pluto Retrograde April 23rd - September 30 2018: Power comes from within

Ambi Sitham

plutopowerwithin.jpg

Hello lovely ones and happy Tuesday!

Yesterday, cosmic powerhouse Pluto began his annual retrograde.

His retrograde lasts approximately five months and starts at 21 degrees Capricorn and ends at 18 degrees Capricorn.

Check where you have these degrees of Capricorn in your chart and also any planets in Capricorn at these degrees.

Pluto retrograde is not to be feared. As with the other bigger, outer planets such as Jupiter and Saturn who recently began their annual retrogrades, the retrograde motion of Pluto does not have so much of a visceral effect on our lives.

Chiron in Aries April 18th - September 26th 2018: Identity crisis? Fear not, it's just a taste of the alchemy to come..

Ambi Sitham

ChironinAries.jpg

Hello lovely ones and happy Monday (or, depending on where you live perhaps happy Tuesday by the time you read this!).

Last week, the day after Saturn turned retrograde, Chiron moved out of Pisces after an eight year stay (he entered Pisces in April 2010) and into Aries.

This is part of his almost nine year transit of the Aries ruled part of the zodiac and therefore our charts but due to his annual retrograde motion he will also dip back into Pisces in September and only return to Aries next February 9 2019.

Chiron as I am sure you know by now, is the wounded healer.
