Hey y’all

I’ve been off and on with my writing on this page. I got caught up trying to things the right way or whatever I thought the right way was in my mind. In actually, I was confused. Who do I want to be in this space? Inspiring. Exhausted. Polished. Certain and sure or confused. Cause honestly, I’m all those things in one day.

I’ve spent the past few years in a metamorphosis. Loosing, forgetting and shedding the me I thought I’d be. Now I’m somebody but still figuring out who. I’d like this blog to be a space to define myself. To figure out what my new boundaries are, to name them and be in the work on living by them.

This blog will be my thinking space as I sort out how this woman in me wants to live her life. Keep checking in cause I’ve got some thangs to say.

Thanks for listening y’all.

Full Moon in Gemini: At The Crossroads

This full moon everyone is trying to decide which way to go and Gemini is coming in fast with just enough faces to both overwhelm you and also help you see all the possibilities. 

This full moon is giving you the gifts of the labor that you committed to in the last 6 months. If you’ve been slacking, then you may feel a sense of urgency to get it all together right now. We are all thinking about the direction we will go. We are all looking back on what we created, what it taught us and how we will move forward. Past. Present and Future are being felt right now. 

Remember to be present in these moments. You’ve probably been holding your breath. Take a moment to breathe.

Inhale.

Exhale.

Trust yourself. Trust that your intentions have been true. Trust that your effort has been shown. Trust that what you’ve given will be returned. You are looking out on to the horizon, watching for the band of horses to come roaring into the skyline. You doubt that they heard your call. Unsure if you hear them galloping, hooves beating the ground as they rush to greet you. Are they are coming to lead you to victory?

Yes.  Have no doubt. 

Gemini and the horses she’s riding in on will help you see things from multiple perspectives. That way, when you’re done sorting through the lessons from the past, you can communicate clearly about what you desire for your future. Take some time this week reflect on how much you’ve grown and from it start to envision of the next chapter of your life.

New Moon in Libra: Reflections on Gratitude

This past new moon in Libra I learned that in order to give fuel to new intentions, you must begin with gratitude. That sounds really simple so let’s get deep…
 
Our assumption is that gratitude means we are thankful for all that we have before we can ask for something or wish for more goodness in our life. And, if we aren’t thankful, nothing good will come to us. That’s not true! You’re praying like a sinner when you’re actually a saint. Gratitude is the felt sensation that all you desire is already available, already possible and already on it’s way to you. Giving thanks is part of showing gratitude but not all of it.
 
🔥 Gratitude is not a mindset you have to get into but you can certainly practice affirmations of gratitude.
 
🔥 Gratitude is not a thought you think but you can certainly ponder the ways you feel gratuitous.
 
Gratitude is a belief with an energetic presence that encapsulates your body. Gratitude is a forcefield that takes every inch of your realized self to produce. Why? Because you are an essential part of producing the outcome of your intentions. You are an active participant in inviting what is possible, available and already on its way. But, remember, gratitude takes belief!
 
So how does one have gratitude if they are struggling with belief?
 
It begins by seeing that you are not the conditions you are placed in and your environment influences your self-perception. Change of environment, change of self-perception. Society may be in flux but your sense of self isn’t. You may be in environments or placed in conditions have taught you to believe you were born with no self-concept and everything you know about yourself was created after birth. Wrong! The roots of your being sink deep into the earth and stretch out into the cosmos. You are timeless and no century, generation, decade, or year can define you.
 
The question is, are you ready to find and define yourself?
 
There is a difference between how you are socialized to perceive yourself and how you actually relate to yourself. We all have the option to take this journey into deeper self-awareness. Prayer, meditation, the arts, and nature are ways to begin connecting with yourself. Cultivating belief comes from learning to trust the voice of who you know yourself as. Not who you see or who you believe because that’s temporary and you are not. As you grow in relationship with you, you grow in the belief of you. That very self-belief is an ingredient of gratitude.
 
You are the you, you’ve been waiting for.
 
Any intention you set moving forward, stems from the belief that you know why you are here and are thankful for why you exist. And because you know why you matter, you know why your intentions need to be manifested into reality. You are magnificent and important and therefore your desires are magnificent and important. Once you commit to yourself that you will shape your reality to bring in the results you desire, you can then send your intentions outwards. This may be to your angels, to god, to trees, the ocean, to ancestors, to spirits or any higher being that you feel drawn to.
 
Your intentions create a contract that says your belief is just as great as the higher powers that belief in you. This is the level of power you can operate from.

Total Solar Eclipse: Goodbye Shadows 

On Monday, while watching the solar eclipse, I wrote a quick note while the eclipse was in totality. Here is the quick jot:

Letting go of the shadows of my inner child. The fear of being seen, heard and fully loved. I am letting go of fear. Asking for what I need. 

I am preparing for courageous vulnerability and a return the land, the water, the earth. I am ready to navigate the oceans of my healing journey and return home to myself. 

I am willing to seek out, find and join those whose journeys are like mine. I ask for fearlessness and discernment when I make a request to the world and it is returned to me. I need honesty and integrity to make the right choices for myself. 

My physical and emotional reaction during the eclipse was surprising to me. I felt very nervous and jittery for all of the totality and it slowly faded away as the sun and moon moved out of alignment. I felt the building up of tension and a slow release that brought in a new feeling of excitement and expectation.

I put my note under the water bowl on my altar to set a reminder to myself and the spirits of what I’ve committed myself to. I’m excited to see how life responds to me and tracking the unfolding.

Thanks for reading and let’s stay connected.
