November was meant to be a month of tests and pressures and I don’t know about you but I feel like I’ve been stretched, pinched, squashed and bounced around…beginning to wish I was made of rubber! I’m pretty sure we can say that what we were warned about was true.
In my Kundalini Yoga teacher training last weekend our wise teacher asked how many of us have gone up against challenges recently. It seemed most of us had. She then said that when you say yes to something and commit to changing, or growing spiritually or letting something die, the universe hears you and begins to speed up the process. It’s because of this that we can feel the intensity of things cracking, shifting and falling away.
I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, you are a women who is committed to her best self, and I’m thinking you’ve said yes recently; yes to you and your life. So you might be feeling this pressure. If you are, I want you to be very gentle with yourself right now, being sure you take care of you, being conscious of your thoughts and actions and not falling into low energy traps or getting stuck into old habits you know no longer serve you.
So here’s a little journaling exercise for you to do to help keep you on track and show you how you can best support yourself…
- What is the transformation (in my self, my life, my work, my thoughts, my relationship…) I am committed to?
- What are the top 3 things (habits, circumstances, people, thoughts) that support me and help me to stay on track with this transformation?
- What are the top 3 things that don’t support me in my success? The things I will consciously avoid and ask for support around.
- Free write (just let the pen flow and don’t judge the process) about the purpose behind your desire to change. What is the vision for your transformation? What will become possible? How will you feel? What will shift?
- Write yourself an empowering love letter. Take time to tell yourself what it is that is so fabulous about you, why you are so unique and so strong. Keep this letter next to your bed and read it every morning and night for the next 2 weeks.
- In 2 weeks email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your experience. We want to know how you are and that this work is serving you.
Remember to take time to be quiet and still in times that test you. Take a walk outside, sip a cup of tea in silence and do your best to get some screen-free time to be with you. Oh and do not forget the power of your breath. Lots and lots of long, deep breathing!
Have a beautiful week sister!
