How has your self care September been going?
I hope you have been able to add some extra space for yourself as we bring the month to a close.
Were you able to do a little “time in” for yourself? Everyday?
What did you notice?
If you didn’t do it that’s ok, no shame or blame.
I have been there! I get it.
For me it was and sometimes still is a challenge, but what I have realized over the years is that it isn’t a manicure or a weekend getaway, although you may enjoy those things and, heck yes, if you can do them and you want to, then do it.
However, what I noticed for myself is that it is taking a moment, even the smallest moment, daily, to just let myself be.
It gives me a little boost and a little ease and takes the pressure off.
Little actions add up to make big shifts.
Make today and tomorrow, the last two days of September count!!! Pump up that self care.
It is a worthy habit.
Really, you matter most.
As a friend of mine said, “you are the center of your universe” and from there we give and do and our cup will run over with love, light, kindness and joy.
Next month . . . can you believe it is almost October?
On the 1st, I will be sending out a Gratitude Challenge.
I know, in Oct? Heck YES. I am feeling it now. Haha.
We are flipping this 2020!!!
If you know anyone who may enjoy this please invite them to join in. (Just have them join our Newsletter here.)
Happy end of September and may the Fall begin, cue leaves. :)
Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends!!!
Since it was my birthday last week (the 18th) I am including this video I shot with a meditation for you all.
In my tradition we give goodies (bake a treat or my grandmas carob balls yum) but since I can’t share treats with you, I wanted to give this meditation to you.
It is what I wish for my birthday; prosperity, everyone successfully thriving.
I was so grateful that on my birthday walk I saw one little dandelion and so I got to make my wish by blowing the beautiful seeds everywhere and planting that throughout the universe.
If you have questions about the meditation reach out.
And please join us for the Circle of Hope on Wednesday (click here to get the link).
Now is the time to deeply dig into yourself and step into all that is, so that thriving is the only option. It will be contagious and will spread and will help change the world.
Let it begin with you.
Love you all
Today I made you a little video a pep talk!!!
Because it feels like we could all use one right now.
I have officially deemed September as, “Self Care September”! It is such a challenging month under normal circumstances and there is nothing “normal” about this September. Everyone is under even more pressure, tension, stress and friction!
As a mom September, December and May have always delivered an extra scoop of crazy.
September brings the transition of schedules, new schools and new teachers and moving from summer freedom into structure. December, of course, delivers the holiday slam and May is back to transitions.
So going into this last quarter of the year please do a daily dose of self care.
I can’t say this enough. It doesn’t have to be some big tadoooo. It could simply be closing your eyes and deeply breathing five long, deep breaths. Seriously this can feel like a vacation hahaha.
Some moments to yourself will make all the difference. For your own stress levels and the result will ripple out to those around you.
Move through your day with a greater awareness of when you need to take a break and then take It.
As I said before it could be five breaths or:
We have the Circle of Hope meditation on Wednesday.
Kundalini Yoga Club
Private coaching: if you need support reach out for a free chat to see if coaching could help you move through these challenging times.
Coaching isn’t just me being a cheerleader for you, although I am thrilled watching my clients break through and crush their limiting beliefs. I use tools and strategies to guide you through when you are feeling stuck, stagnant, uninspired and trapped by your same ole same ole thinking!
Sending love and ease to everyone!!!! Let’s flip this September and make it the most ease filled, relaxed month of the year!!!! It’s up to us. We can do it.
Let’s clear our stress so we can then take action with clarity and ease. Sounds good right?!!!!
The plan is to join together for the next 18 Wednesdays in 2020. WHAT? Is that even possible? 18 Wednesdays left of this year?
This will be a quick meditation to bring us to the clarity and knowing that all is well. Then we can see for ourselves what we need to do as we move forward into the school year, the election, anti-racism, the holidays and dealing with covid.
It is imperative to keep our stress levels down so our health remains high. No doubt there will be some external challenges ahead just further emphasizing the importance of being calm within!
I hope you will join us.
Sending love to all of you
Can you feel it?
Are you there with me?
Let’s bust through it.
This time of Covid is here for us to break through our fears.
Each and everyone of us has a different Achilles heel, a weak spot, that we can crack open with the light of awareness, exposing us to something that has been hidden or is ready to be released, that had been buried or even denied.
If you sit with that can you “see” what it is?
Is it a surprise? Is it hard to look at?
Are you ready to look at it?
As the old saying goes, “there is no time like the present”.
Can you imagine if that wasn’t a fear or an “issue” for you? What would that mean to you?
What would be different for you? How would you feel?
I have a lot of questions today hahaha.
I am seeing this a lot.
Take time today to just ponder this.
Walk with it. Sit with it. Sleep on it. Meditate on it. Write about it. Answer these questions.
See what bubbles up.
Let’s do the work.
This is a time of transformation for each and every one of us. As a whole we need to transform and yet this transformation begins with each of us, individually.
If we want to help heal the world, let's start today and look deeply at ourselves.
Let’s ALL move through to the other side. Let it begin with you.
