Happy New Year Friends!!!
Wow what a year it has been right? Have you guys all landed in 2020 yet?
My feet are just started to hit the ground... like just my tippy-toes I think lol, because all of the January plans I set for myself in December went out the window on the first week of January!
But hey, its ok... this is just another opportunity to reach into my spiritual toolbox and make sure that my action steps for the rest of 2020 are aligned with my spirit.
What I thought I wanted for this year has completely changed!
And I am totally at peace now because my circumstances "forced" me to slow down and REFLECT 😊
BEFORE YOU SET YOUR 2020 YEARLY INTENTIONS💫
I just love setting goals for myself, breaking down those big tasks into small chunks I can tackle in 20- 30 minute increments so that little by little, by the end of the month I can see my progress!
...however, before I start on those "should do's" or "to-do's" I like getting clear on my deep desires, things that truly matter to me, my INTENTIONS.
And even before I do THAT, I take time for solitude and REFLECTION.
✨Have you taken time to reflect on the last 12 months, the last 3 months or even how you feel about this week that just passed?
✨If so, how do you do that? Write it down on paper?
Talk to a friend? Express yourself on social media or groups?
During the Winter months and this Dark Moon phase, some of us may experience low energy, a need for solitude, a need for lots of rest, heightened intuition and a need to recharge and regenerate.
And I encourage you to embrace this “shadow" time.
I know this may be easier said than done but if you have a need to start setting goals and new year intentions for yourself, but have not started, thats ok!
This is probably because your soul is asking you to take time and reflect first.
And maybe start a self care practice of Journaling???
Winter Dark Moon Reflection Questions:
✨1. What do I need to let go of?
✨2. What am I making room in my life for?
✨3. What area of my life needs the most attention?
✨4. What emotions, thoughts or feelings need to be released?
WHAT ARE YOUR NEW MOON INTENTIONS?
We are still in the New Moon window, its not too late to set your intentions!
I have been using the 4 phases of the Moon (and essential oils of course!) to manifest my goals and set intentions for the life I want to live over the last 6 years maybe longer...
and I have been writing Poetry to turn my challenges into Beauty for even longer ..for over 20 years!
I wrote a poetry book called "Phases of the Moon" in my 20's when I had no idea how the Phases of the Moon would influence my life today.
I honestly feel that safely moving my family to Ukiah from Los Angeles 2 yrs ago and successfully finding a home in a place that is considered to have a "housing crisis" could not have happened without having daily self care rituals, following my intuition, Spirituality, and connecting with Earth's natural rhythms & cycles including the Sun & Moon.
I've learned that our environment & the natural world around us has many lessons to teach us.
These practices did not "magically" make my home appear out of thin air- but it definitely raised my confidence and gave me the courage to BELIEVE that it was even possible!
I created New Moon body spray for creating inspiration in our life to follow our goals and dreams.
Each blend is made with rose water, organic essential oils and a little quartz crystal inside each bottle.
Violetta and I hold the little quartz crystals in our hands and we say a little prayer together to send love & happiness to each person that will receive the bottle <3
Use the organic essential oil blend to raise your vibration and activate your New Moon intentions!
This is how I use it
