Last Tuesday I was tired, grumpy, emotional, over it, done. I had a massive headache and could barely sit up to eat dinner.
So I rescheduled my online clients (thank you for your understanding) and deep dived into self care. That looked like having a good cry, sitting with and feeling all of my emotions to allow them to shift through me. I love the practice of having a cry to let all of the emotions come to the surface and leave my energy field. It feels so cathartic.
'Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going'.
I came across this quote a little while ago and I deeply resonated with it.
I'm sure I am not alone when I say that I have had many times when I have started a new practice extremely motivated and with great intentions, only for it to fizzle out in a matter of weeks or days.
The other day in lockdown I decided to mix things up.
The kids were was soooo over home schooling and were resisting it to their best efforts. Instead of trying to convince them to do it, I sympathized with them that home schooling sucks and I get that they'd rather be at school. Then I realized that we needed to shift this funky energy, so I suggested a game on the trampoline.
I have a story to share with you about an unexpected healing experience I had recently at my dentist.
This story reminds me that healing truly is possible anywhere!
I'm here today to share a few updates at SD HQ with you...
Being back in lockdown here in Victoria, Australia, and that lockdown being extended meant that I needed to up my self care game. I feel that we could all use a dose of this at the moment.
So, I want to share with you a few things that I have been doing to take care of myself so I can be the best version of me for myself, my family, my friends and the world.
“When nothing in certain, anything is possible”.
These words stuck in my mind after reading them in an Instagram post last week.
The full quote is:
“Trust the wait, embrace the uncertainty, enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible” by Mandy Hale.
I felt like the timing couldn’t have been more perfect to read this quote after (like many of us) feeling a little lost after our last lockdown here in Victoria.
Many a conversation over the past few weeks have included shared experiences over the last lockdown here in Melbourne. And I wanted to share a bit about my experience with you.
After our last lockdown here in Melbourne I began to feel far from my usual self.
I was feeling lost, sad, overwhelmed, confused, vulnerable and so many other different emotions.
So much changes literally overnight with a lockdown in place:
This past week I fell of my daily rituals wagon.
And I really felt it to. In so many ways.
Feeling grumpy and overwhelmed, not having the best sleep and buying into the stories of my ego to name a few. Basically riding the waves of being human! But I do find that I cope with the waves SO much better when I have my regular rituals in place.
This is a practice or more of a perspective that I often return to in my own intuitive journey and in sessions with my clients wanting to deepen their own intuitive connection.
