Starting the next chapter in my book of Life

Good morning readers!

This month is packed full of powerful energy shifts, which started with the Virgo New Moon on September 1st, followed by the Pisces Harvest Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse September 16th last night (and I am really feeling the effects today), followed by the upcoming New Moon on September 30th.

I love this Zodiac Guide for 2016 – it has been so true for me so far!

This morning was strange for me, it was emotionally charged and after a restful sleep in and lounging in bed, I just felt like I wanted to cry. Do you ever have those moments where emotion seems to grab hold of you and you feel a bit lost? It’s easy to let irrational emotional thoughts take hold of us at this point. I messaged a friend of mine this morning while this was happening, and she helped me ground myself and step back from the emotion by reminding me that the irrationality is not from the present moment, it is from the past and other circumstances. After this, I sat quietly for a while to examine the emotions I was experiencing, and I also journaled to understand what I was going through.

What I learned was that the shift I have been experiencing has been a lot more powerful than I realized. This month I have been experiencing a shift to focus more on myself – self-love, health, wellness, building my career, excelling at my career and restarting my Wellness Project to achieve harmony with my Mind, Body and Soul.

I have been experiencing confirmation after confirmation that I am on the right path, with all of the subtle and not so subtle signs I have been receiving. One very important thing I should point out is that being open to receiving, seeing, acknowledging and learning from these signs has been a very important part of my transformation.  It was my birthday on Thursday September 15th, and I received 2 gifts which were both signs I loved. One was a beautiful Blue Agate stone which is helpful for balancing energies of the mind, body and soul. The other was the book The 52 Lists Project – A Year of Weekly Journaling Inspiration by Moorea Seal. Both gifts were signs of healing, letting go and embracing positive change by focusing on the things that bring me joy, peace, and happiness.

I had planned for today to be a celebration with friends as well, but very few people were free, so this was a sign to me that I needed to embrace this quiet time for myself to reflect and here I am writing to you. 🙂 I am glad to have some quiet time to be honest. It’s during this time that I am able to rejuvenate myself and focus on my goals while learning from my recent experiences…..so I am grateful for the time to do this today. I was able to turn my emotionally charged morning into a day of reflection and growth, which is exactly what I should have done. Rather than get upset by the emotions, I allowed myself to experience them, and understand them, which has lead to some personal growth and understanding today. I hope that my experience has inspired you to understand your emotions more fully!

I am now going to go work on my Healthy Habit Challenge project that helps YOU (and me 😉 ) create a Lifestyle of Healthy Habits while living Mindfully and Positively. Check it out HERE.

 

 

 

How learning to say “NO” changed my life and helped me learn self-care

I’m sure at some point most people want to say “NO” to certain people and situations. Haven’t we all? Saying no to the partner who doesn’t treat us right, or the boss who asks us to do something we don’t agree with, or the friend who lies to us and we still are friends with them.

I used to be that person who put up with these kinds of situations. The unhealthy relationships, the jerk bosses and the friends who don’t deserve to be in my life. It drained me. It sucked the life out of me, and I gave up on being happy about my future. It was depressing.

One day earlier this year I put my foot down, and started saying “NO” to these situations….and things started to turn around for me in a positive way.

How much of your personal journey do you share?

Good morning readers!

It is a beautiful and Introspective morning here. I look outside my window at a slightly overcast sky as I write to you. I am going through what I consider to be stressful thoughts, but I’m sure most of us go through them. I am on a journey of personal understanding and growth, and the further I go into this, I feel like it pulls me further away and isolates me from those I thought were my friends. Why? Let me explain.
