I have spoken about completing a 4 day mediation intensive training a bit here and there, but today I really want to dive deeper into this because it has been such a beautiful incredible experience and I want to share this.
I first penned this post just after completing my meditation course and now am coming back to this 2 months prior (almost to the day) and have been meditating daily for 20 minutes or 40 minutes each day! Crazy for me to even fathom, now I am not saying this will be for your, but by sharing my experience I hope to help you with your own meditation practice if that looks even more hardcore than mine, or by simply taken a few mindful breaths before you get out of bed.
I spoke about falling out of love with my business post my Manifest My Desires workshop the other week here. In person events, which I love have a natural tendency of a low post, due to such a high of the creation and getting to the event, not to mention all the adrenaline of rocking it.
Now I know I am definitely not the first person to fall out of love with their online business and I know that I will not be the last too. Which is why I believe it is so important to firstly talk about it and secondly talk you through what I did to help me fall back in love with it.
So let me paint the picture, I just generally couldn’t be bothered post event, a big couple of months putting on this workshop mixed with huge life lessons left me feeling totally zapped! My head was swirling with all these thoughts and that is always a tell tale sign I need to slow down!
Almost one month ago I hosted a sacred in person event for women who wanted to learn to trust in themselves more than their fear. This night was focused on sacred connection, soul-filled clarity and heart-centred action.
I want to share with you about my own creative experience of bringing this into the world and provide you with all my insight and learnings too.
First things first, let me just say this, it was hard. So super, really hard. Both professionally and due to tragic personal reasons in the lead up to this event. There were a number of times I thought I could have or should have cancelled it. I didn’t have the amount of guests at the workshop as I had originally hoped for, and I really had to work at reframing this lack thinking to one of gratitude. I had to get over myself and love and enjoy the workshop – which I so did. So let’s dive in …
Have you ever been in the situation where you are working towards a big goal, and have lots on your plate? You might even think that you are too busy to take care of yourself.
So your self-care starts to drop, because that voice in your head says “you don’t have time to do yoga today” and so you listen to it. You skip yoga, end up messing and fluffing around for a couple of hours, feeling guilty that you didn’t go to yoga, feel guilty that you have SO much work to do and you haven’t touched anything.
Finally in a couple of hours you are stressed because you didn’t relax with yoga, stressed because you didn’t get all the work you wanted to done and feeling pretty yuk. In today’s post I am going to be sharing with you how you can work on getting unbusy, how keeping your self-care is imperative.
Life is feeling chaotic right now, sitting here too hot from my freshly cooked minestrone soup with cramps pretty much sums up life right now. This morning I journaled like I do most mornings and felt that this mish-mash collection and ramblings of everything in my head would be of use to somebody out there.
This is a collection of thoughts penned from the inside of my journal.
Just trying to make sense of this little world I live in, and perhaps it might help you make sense of something you have going on right now too.
