As we enter into the new year a few things are moving through me that I wanted to drop in and share with you.
My hope is that these tips can help you navigate the waves and stay connected to your TRUTH and your PROCESS.
#1. If you haven't already make sure you check out my Transition Ceremony -- you can access it here.
#2. As you take time to reflect on 2019 - the ups, the downs, your accomplishments, your challenges... remember that GRIEF is also a form of PRAISE. I have been seeing SO MANY POSTS and EMAILS all about how awesome 2019 has been and how grateful everyone is for all the lessons, challenges, and magic it brought...
Seeing these posts has activated - somewhat of mixed feelings for me.
Don't get me wrong, I am a believer in gratitude and I think it's so important to find the gem in each situation... And at the same time, I also think its SUPER IMPORTANT to allow yourself to grieve and to mourn what has been lost and what you have let go of.
The past couple of days I have found myself secretly grieving...
Dreams that didn't manifest. James loosing his job. Loosing our pup. Moving homes... and that looking much different than we imagined. Old versions of myself and versions of my business.
What I notice is, the more space I give myself to feel the layers -- the more space I create for TRUE COMPASSION and DEEP GRATITUDE.
Grief IS a form of PRAISE.
And if you are having a hard time finding the JOY or APPRECIATION for 2019 -- I just want to let you know -- it is OK. Allow yourself to be where you are. Feel all the layers. Allow your GRIEF to be YOUR PRAISE.
#3. Navigate the VOID by DAY DREAMING.
If you are like me, you are still a bit in the void. You have a feel for or an idea of what your next creation will be... and where you are desiring to go... but, it isn't fully formed just yet. It is still in creation mode.
The VOID isn't always the most fun part of the process. It takes a lot of patience. Waiting. Listening. Allowing. And trusting.
When I am in a void - I often notice my mind trying to speed things up. Hurry up the process. Typically this doesn't work out all that great. It usually creates some tangled wires or puts me in a place of doing things that don't really work out or aren't really what I wanted -- so I end up redoing them :P
The past couple weeks, I have been really staying present to and with the part of me that wants to hurry my process along and BIRTH my next creation already. I've also been getting really curious about how I can support my process rather than LEAK energy from it.
One of the things that has come forward (it was inspired by my RISE TOGETHER convo with Kate - you can tune into it here! ) is creating space to DAY DREAM. Not the type of DAY DREAM where you are setting intentions or trying to manifest. Just good old fashion Day Dreaming. Letting the mind play. Explore. Wonder. And try things on :)
As we ring in 2020 -- I am going to be giving myself lots of space to Day Dream. About the clients I will be serving in 2020. About what I desire for the next few years of my life. Plus so much more.
If you notice your mind is feeling restless -- I invite you to join me :)
#4. As we close out the year, I want you to know how much I deeply appreciate and value YOU. Thank you for being part of my community and even more importantly THANK YOU for doing YOUR WORK.
The world needs YOU. And we need each other.
I am sending you so much love and magic as we continue to wrap up 2019 and welcome 2020.
P.S. I will be sending out the *first* RISE TOGETHER sacred conversation later this week. I'm giving myself lot's of GRACE around the schedule and allowing myself to go with the FLOW and FLOW with the energy. Stay tuned ;)
