Kirsty Gallagher: “Pursue your dreams”

Kirsty Gallagher joined Happiful at Wellbeing by the Lakes Festival to talk about the moon, the autumn equinox and why now is the time to follow your dreams...

At the beginning of September, Moon Mentor Kirsty Gallagher joined
Happiful on the Riverside Stage at Wellbeing by the Lakes Festival to share her love of lunar living and how to harness the magic of the moon.

Here, Happiful shares the live recording from this amazing event and some wonderful words of wisdom from Kirsty herself.

Kirsty Gallagher on

Autumn equinox

  • The pisces full moon is coming on 21 September this year, which is incredibly powerful because it's one day before the autumn equinox. This full moon is about a big deep release of anything we don't want to take into autumn with us, anything that we don't want to carry over and carry through.

  • This pisces full moon and the autumn equinox are going to be an incredible time for 'shedding' and releasing, before we start to go inwards in the autumn phase.

Living by the moon

  • Lunar energy can be really empowering because first, we recognise what is happening for us. We might discover that we accept less than we deserve, repeat behaviours of self-sabotage. Then we take accountability for our lives, our actions, our words and how we're putting ourselves in the world.

  • Lunar living gives us a beautiful blueprint to discover who you actually are, then you can know what YOU want, what your values are, what you're saying yes and no to - and that's the journey to authenticity for me.

Pursuing your dreams

  • Speaking at events like Wellbeing by the Lakes, I appreciate it so much because in my head I'm still that little yoga teacher who teaches in a village hall somewhere. I do this to say, if I can do it, you can do it.

  • For anyone who has a dream alive in their heart, do something today; one thing to move you closer to that becoming a reality.

If you have a dream inside you, it's because it's needed in the world right now. I promise you.

A new episode of Happiful's podcast I am. I have is released every Tuesday and, for the coming weeks, bonus tracks recorded live on the Riverside Stage at Wellbeing by the Lakes will be shared too. Please subscribe to have them ready and waiting for you to listen to.
