When you finally start to step into your true self it can be very scary. You are trying to make sense of what is happening in your life. Your relationships start to change and you are left trying to figure out where to go next. In this episode, I share my own journey with this and my tips on how to navigate stepping into your true self.
Tomorrow is my birthday and it has me doing some serious self reflecting. I like to take time each year and think about what I have acholmpished over the past year of my life. This year the 10 year photo challenge is fresh in my head and it make me think what was my life like 10 years ago. 10 years ago I was just starting my Saturn Returns and was 28 years old. I was feeling like I was behind in life and trying to play catch up. When I think back on this time there was a 3 year blur between 25-28. Everything just runs together because I was so busy trying to make shit happen. In this podcast episode I decided to share advice I would give to my 25 and 28 year old self.
n this episode, I sit down and chat with Sofia Lawrence (a yoga instructor and motivational mentor) and Leslie Woods (entrepreneur and boss base) and discuss their upcoming workshop on;
1. Situational Awareness: Jumpstart your journey to a rewarding inner narrative by understanding when, how, and why you are speaking to yourself.
2. Build Inner Dialogue: Refine your awareness with tools and takeaways that you can use in your day-to-day life.
3. Create Your Ideal 2019: Envision and design your year ahead in a tactile way with your own vision board.
We talk in depth about how self-talk can impact your life and how to attract everything you want into your life.
In this episode, I explore the second week of my book Light it Up! I take you on a journey a little deeper into the sacral chakra. I explain how the planets and zodiac have an effect on the sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune and the zodiacs Sagittarius and Pisces. Each having a yin/yang effect on the chakra. The sacral chakra is home to our emotions, creativity, and feminine energy. The planet Jupiter helps us to expand and grow. It is difficult to do this when our energy is blocked preventing us from growing. The planet Neptune rules illusions and creativity. It is easy to see why we are able to create illusions about ourselves so easily. When the sacral chakra is blocked we often have illusions about what we think we are or what we look like. We create barriers and walls that prevent us from growing creatively as well.
In this podcast, I explain that right now both Jupiter and Neptune are stationed in their ruling zodiacs of Sagittarius and Pisces. This means that 2019 is a great year to dig deep into the sacral chakra and heal the trauma that is there. This year is primed for creative expansion and healing. It is also a good time to explore your own natal birth chart and see what you are bringing into this life astrologically.
The activities for this week are to give yourself a massage. The activity of giving yourself a massage is a step towards getting comfortable in your own body. It allows you to start feeling your body and making yourself feel good. This can be uncomfortable at first but it’s an activity you will hopefully grow to love.
The journal assignment for this week is to journal about your emotions. As soon as you wake up in the morning note how you feel. Write down any strong emotions that come about during the day. Notice if you have control over your emotions or if you have trouble showing your emotions. You can even take this a step further and track your emotions with the moon cycle.
There will be a solar and lunar eclipse this month with I will be talking about later this week.
