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

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.

How are you treating yourself? -Checking in with yourself…

img_9611

Hey Beautiful Soul!

I have a question for you, it seems pretty simple at first. However, I invite you to stop for a moment, take a deep breath and allow yourself to really check in with this question.

How are you treating yourself lately? Are you treating yourself as an afterthought, with guilt, judgment, frustration? How we treat ourselves sets the tone for how others treat us.  How we talk to ourselves is part of how we treat ourselves, the way we eat, the way we nourish our mind, body and soul are all part of how we are treating ourselves.  For some of us, we may feel we are doing really well in one area but have pretty  much ignored the other areas or have just never really thought about it or thought it mattered much. It does matter, because YOU matter.

If I didn’t , I would- Journal Prompt

20150206-100300.jpg

Hey Inspiring Souls,

We all have things we feel are blocking us from being, doing, buying, feeling what we seek.  One way to help uncover what some of those things (or perception of those things stopping us) is to ask yourself this:

If I didn’t____ I would______ 

There are so many ways to go with this prompt for all different areas of our lives. I encourage you to set a time for say 5-10 minutes and just let it flow out (try not to overthink it, go with your gut)

5 Questions to ask yourself when you are overwhelmed- Friday 5

img_7620

Hey Beautiful Souls!

5 Questions to ask yourself when you are overwhelmed:

Each of us has gone through a time where we felt overwhelmed in life. Maybe it’s the clutter around you, maybe it’s the amount of things on your to do list and so on. It’s not a fun place to be, and the good thing is we don’t have to stay there. We can ( all be it slowly sometimes) shift our way out of it. The best way I think is to start by asking yourself some questions and allow yourself to answer truly honestly, not what you think you should be responding to.

1)      What am I overwhelmed about? Ok this seems obvious but so often we can’t mindfully  name the cause(s) of the overwhelm.

2)      Is this mine to carry, truly? We can get overwhelmed and stressed out by things that are not even ours. I am great at this 😀

3)      Is this an obligation or an opportunity?

4)      What do I need?

5)      What can I release or put aside to create some space for a deep breath and some clarity?

Deep breath, you’ve got this! It doesn’t all have to be figured out right now!
