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?
I invite you to Serve from your saucer. NOT YOUR CUP.
This is why i’ve been so quiet on social media these last couple of months.
My cup has not been filled enough to offer my services or shine my light outside of my home and family.
And sometimes I question myself:
“Am I being a perfectionist? Waiting for the “perfect” moment to write the “perfect email?”
“Am I hiding? Waiting till all the obstacles are over… THEN I will share happy content and inspire my community?”
“Or am I just exhausted and sleep deprived? Focusing my energy on sick kids, emotional teenagers, my own emotional and spiritual healing as I tried facing these last 8 weeks head on without sticking my head in the sand?”
YUP. This is the one. This feels like the truth.
The first 2 statements may or may not be true but it doesn’t matter.
Things are far from “perfect”, the challenges and obstacles are NOT OVER and I am making a CHOICE right now to finally reach out and share some of the self care practices I need to start in order to fill my cup.
~I’m exhausted- but empowered.
