Ways to connect- Friday 5

Hey Lovely Soul,

Connecting is something that really matters to me. However, as with many of us, it’s easy to get caught up in the gotta do and should do and lose sight of what we need or what matters right now.

Here are 5 ways to connect (this weekend or anytime)

  1. Connect with Beauty. Buy some flowers, go outside and seek out something beautiful(tip, start looking at details instead of the overwhelm of everything in your view!)
  2. Connect with yourself. Allow yourself to just be still for even 5 minutes ( I know this can feel like hours if you’re not used to it. I love to find stillness in child’s pose) Journal, put your hand on your heart and one on y our bell and ask yourself what you need, sit and listen to a song with your eyes closed and feel it.
  3. Connect with others. Spend time with loved ones or friends, look people in the eyes (this includes people who are ringing you up at a store or the like) Reach out in person or via text, phone or some other way!
  4. Connect with your creativity. Take a photo (or 20!), Get a journal, magazines and a glue stick and glue down some images and words that you love, feel drawn to, doodle, color, knit.
  5. Connect with your body. How are your shoulders feeling, are they up to your ears? What is your body craving, take deep belly breaths, what food or beverage would really nourish you today?

Ask- Self and Soul Care Saturday

Hey Beautiful Soul,

Self- Care is really multi layered and individual, what it looks and feels like will fluctuate as your life shifts and goes through various seasons. And while I just love lists and I love ideas of what self-care looks like in various areas for all sorts of life circumstances. (and I will continue to share those ideas) I am learning more and more that this question is the key to right fit self-care.

Ask yourself what you most need right now (mind, body, spirit/Soul or any one or combination of those) and then do your best to honor that/those answers.

What is it to you- Self and Soul Care Saturday

Heya, Beautiful Souls!

It’s easy to get stuck in a self-care rut, either avoiding it or just going through the motions but not really engaging in things that really feed us.

So this week, let’s look at what self and soul care you are craving, what your desires are around it and what are your absolute basics.

  1. My very basics of self and soul care are…
  2. What my body, mind, soul are needing right now are…
  3. Self and soul care that I would love to do but can’t…. (now what are one or two feelings or bits you can take from those and break it down, simplify it) can those be added into your self an soul care inspiration -go to list?
  4. Is the self and soul care I am engaging in now are really nourishing and supporting me?

Now take at least one tiny thing insight, action etc from this exploration and schedule it in or better yet dive into it today!

Sometimes- Thursday Thoughts

Hey Inspiring Souls!

Sometimes what feels safe (familiar) is not the path that is leading us towards, into the deeper truth that we seek. (in fact it could be said that it is never the path that is leading us where we seek to be)

Sometimes what feels right, even peaceful is really painful and difficult.

Sometimes your Soul needs you to show up ready or not.

Sometimes the support you need the most is your own.

Sometimes what we resist the most is what we seek/need/crave the most.

Sometimes we need to start from where we are.

Sometimes we need a fresh start.

Sometimes we need to just be.

Sometimes we need to stop thinking and take action and trust.

Remember- (Found) Journal Prompt

image3

Hey Beautiful Souls,

I have been doing Journal Prompts for years on this blog. I am a huge advocate of journaling and I wanted to keep doing so, but to mix it up a bit. So I decided to start sharing found journal prompts (words, maybe even images) from magazines, junk mail, etc…

So this week’s is: Remember this..

This could be a moment, a message, an interaction that you want to remember.
