We’re halfway through 2020 and WOW!!! What a year this has been so far. Like a lot of us, I’ve been caught up in a roller-coaster of emotions and looking back, I see that it has drained me of my energy, of creativity, of inspiration, of being able to function in every day activities. It’s drained me of my inner power and I didn’t realize it until now.
But, for the first time, July is here, and I feel hope and an opening for new beginnings, I’m feeling a shift in the energies, and an invitation to celebration and joy.
I feel July is bringing me back to myself, here’s what I’m doing:
1 – I need to celebrate ME. Celebrate my accomplishments so far. How I’ve held myself up, how through it all I’m still OK. By making conscious choices, and even though at times it wasn’t easy, I’ve been taking care of my health. I’m exercising, and I haven’t broken my rule of no eating at night since the middle of February. Yeah!!! I’m celebrating that through it all I still wrote articles every month for The Inspired Guide magazine (here) no matter how hard it was to be creative and write. I’m celebrating me for being resilient, strong, and determined. Yes, I’m celebrating.
2 – I forgot that my word for this year is – EMPOWERED – and I’m bringing it back into the forefront every day, leaning on it, embracing it, and it’s already making me feel empowered. Yeah!!!
3 – Our energy can be zapped out of us, especially when we’re with people that have negative energy or, places and situations that are full with negative energy, even through TV or cell phone, our energy can be zapped leaving us, drained. A practice that I used to do, and I don’t know why I ever stopped, is something I learned from the wonderful Danielle LaPorte (here). She said that at the end of the day when she gets home before she gets out of her car she calls her power back into her. She declares – I call all of my power back to me now. I am whole and complete –
And the wonderful Sarah Jensen (here) just recently shared this, – For my highest good may all parts of me left in other people, places, dimensions, times and events return to me to energize, revitalize, and make me whole –
I’m loving this, so along with smudging myself to remove negative energies every morning, I am also returning to doing this ritual of taking my power back into me.
I hope this serves you, love to hear from you.
