I've been laying low, being extra thoughtful about my moves. Each time I try to get back into my routine I feel sluggish. It's driving me crazy.
😫I go through the motions of beating up on myself for not being productive and consistent.
😫I hate on myself for not taking better care of myself and for not being more "perfect."
😫I get to comparing myself to others and start to stress myself out for not being at the same level.
😕How many times have you fallen off your routine only to push yourself harder when you get back to it?
😕Fallen off your diet only to starve yourself to make up for weight gained?
😕Eaten food you enjoy only to regret it out of guilt?
😕Took a day off from working out to work out extra hard the next day?
😕Felt like giving up because you feel like you've gotten too far from where you were?
These are fresh in my mind because that was my recent memory. This mindset comes from the perspective of lack aka scarcity. It comes from the belief that you're not enough.
Truth is, you needed that break from your routine for one reason or another. Whatever it is, it's bigger than one workout/meal/day off! I'll wager its even bigger than 2-3 days off. Your body is an intelligent being. It knows what it needs. Most importantly, stop judging and start embracing yourself!
Your Higher Self is calling you to rest and recharge because you're going to need your full energy. While you're there, feel into why. What does it tell you?
I need to rest and recharge to hold space for myself and others. I know that I got into a routine once and I can do it again. This time it'll be an evolved routine. Knowing I'm resting with a higher purpose helps me lean into it.
The work doesn't end with this election. We have plenty of work to do. If you are done with people telling you right from wrong and ready to reconnect with your native guidance system, use the Book Now button to book a 15 minute consultation to see if we are an energetic match!
Slow the f*ck down.
When I took my month long break from my secure job, the biggest takeaway was how hard I was driving myself. I realized I wasn't giving my best energy to the things most important to me and it pushed me to examine how I was prioritizing my life.
Why am I pushing myself so hard?
Why aren't I savoring the things I treasure?
What is the root cause of these beliefs?
I had Broadway's Hamilton playing over and over in my head.
How do you write like you're running out of time?
Write day and night like you're running out of time?
Everyday you fight like you're running out of time
Like you're running out of time
Are you running out of time?
How do you write like tomorrow won't arrive?
How do you write like you need it to survive?
How do you write every second you're alive?
Every second you're alive? Every second you're alive?
Initially, I thought I needed to burn the energy and that I needed to let the inspiration flow. Damn, I was wrong. If you haven't watched Hamilton happily dozens of times, I will throw you a bone and tell you that there is another song "You'll never be satisfied" that also spoke to me.
It's time to be present. In the moment. Time to realize that everything I love is already in my possession. Stop chasing the dream and allow myself to enjoy the dream I'm living.
Do you relate? What dream are you chasing?
I was editing some of my demonstration videos to make shorter Instagram friendly clips. I noticed that I say "it is not for me to judge" quite a bit.
I say it out loud whenever I'm doubting myself about what I am receiving.
I say it out loud whenever what I am receiving doesn't make sense.
I say it out loud when what I am receiving makes me uncomfortable and I am afraid to share it.
Spirit makes no mistakes. It all happens as perfectly planned.
Saying this little phrase helps me release my attachment to the outcome that makes me feel like holding back.
It pulls me back to trusting and remembering the Universe has a plan.
It reminds me I'm just here for the ride.
Do you have a word or phrase that helps you snap back to alignment?
Q: What do we need to know for this week to align with our highest good?

"We engage with ourselves most deeply when we live another in a committed, strong, free and blessed way." This card reversed calls our attention to how we may be unbalanced in relationships with either too much control, not enough participation, too much love (yes it's possible, it's called overbearing 😬), jealousy, fear, integrating pain from previous relationships, etc and this is not limited to romantic relationships. How can you deepen your understanding of relationships for a balanced co-created experience?
Greenman is an archetype that represents masculine energy, receiving, he represents the human personification of nature/plants. Greenman's natural ability to receive with total alignment allows him to grow strong and lush making way for the beauty of nature and foliage. Foliage that in turn gives to the beings that live off of it. His ability to give lies in his ability to receive; balance, as above so below, mirrors.
The faery bride is Greenman's feminine energy equivalent; a master of giving energy, wild, free, joyful in her independence. It is in her pursuit of joy that she gives her energy to those around her so that she may receive their energy back in rest. Ever been in the presence of someone and feel like it reinvigorates you? That's her presence. Ever kick off your shoes at the end of a hike to soak in the setting and recharge? This faery does the same thing. I see her playing in the forest and laying in the foliage to recharge. Her ability to receive the charging energy of the forest lies in her ability to rain her fae energy where she plays, like magic dust flowing from her being.
Their union represents a deeper, mature understanding of the balance of said energies in a way that creates a new lineage, path, storyline. This card represents the energy and significance/value of such beginnings and rituals to usher in such transitions/transformations.

"The mothering energy of this beautiful faery is echoed in the shape of the moon- she is waxing and is the sign of the mother, and is able to hold, receive, grow and allow in love, fertility, energy and the life- force itself. " When I read "waxing" I looked at my moon app and sure enough, we are in the waxing gibbous phase of the moon. So cool.
This faery bathes in waters charged by feminine moon energy. Her chalice is a representation of taking in energy, being in the position of receiving. How often are you in a position of constantly giving? Of course you feel depleted, fatigued, maybe even resentful. You need to receive as much as you give, it's balance. Plain and simple. You've got to get to give, and vice versa. Drink lots of water to help your energy flow and to expel what no longer serves you. Give yourself a rest to reset and receive energy so that you can feel while and lively again.
