Monday Intentions Twenty Eight | Cultivating Worth and Being in Relationship with Myself
Happy Monday and October! The past week was beautiful, I felt such a deepening of community. I am feeling so blessed to be surrounded by SO many amazing people, and always meeting more. The weather really shifted in the last week, I totally feel Fall in my bones, the cold is coming, and I think I'm okay with it. I have been LOVING the shorter days as I find it aligns much more with the way I like to go about my days (early bed, early wake up), which I find so hard to do in Summer. It's so interesting to have been observing myself throughout each season and being reassured how deeply I am (and we are all) connected to the seasons. I have made some big decisions that I am feeling so so so good about, but am aware of how different my life is going to be soon. Change is good, change is necessary. With that, here are the intentions for the week:
Cultivating Worth and Being in Relationship with Myself: This morning in meditation I realized that there were parts of myself that didn't feel as if I deserved my SELF, that I didn't deserve the beauty within, and the light I have to share. I realized that this part of me that didn't feel like it was worthy of myself is one of the major blocks that keeps me held back, and playing small. It's kind of flabbergasting, but it's the truth. I am not sad about it at all, I am so happy I realized it, and am now able to get to the root of why I believe this. Knowing that I have this deeply limiting belief about myself is a gateway into fuller embodiment, and healing.
Another thing I decided this week is that I am going to be in a sacred and intimate relationship with MYSELF. I am going to honour, love, and treat myself in the ways I crave outwardly. I am feeling so excited about this because I see it as another form of empowerment and radical self love, truly. I am excited because I believe everything is a reflection of the relationship we have with ourself. Realizing this made me want to deepen my relationship with myself to a whole new level. We show people how to treat us by how we treat ourself. We show people how to love us, by how we love ourself. It always begins with ourself. I am so happy to have the opportunity, space, and time to develop this kind of relationship with myself, and know that it will just deepen and deepen as I unfold. Here is the video that inspired me:
Love and Heart: Continuing with the above theme is just setting the intention of Love in general. I love loving, and am finding it easier and easier to just be in a state of love.. Cacao and music really help me come to this place. When I give myself the space to be in a place of love everything else makes more sense. I have more patience, I can be more present with myself and therefore really BE there for people. I find to be in heart is to dramatically slow down. Love is presence, and I find presence is one of the best gifts we can offer to someone else, and ourself. When we open our hearts, we open ourself up the magic that is around us constantly, we welcome it. Slowing down is the key to opening ourselves up to love and BEing in the heart.
Strength: Change is happening for me, cycles completing, new ones beginning. I feel momentum, surrender, excitement, readiness, and I am calling in strength to help keep me centred while my life goes through yet another drastic change.
Meditation: I find meditative states fairly easily. My meditation practice doesn't always look like a typical mediation practice, but these days it actually does and I have been LOVING it. Meditation has been feeding me so much, and i've been finding beautiful clarity and insights in my quiet time. Intending to keep this practice going strong.
Simplicity: Simplify, simplify, simplify. I could go on, but that would seem against the point.
I have so many words to share. My heart is pounding with so much love and gratitude. 2017 has been the most amazing year of my entire life. I just want you to know that I love you, that you are worthy, and that you are not alone. We all have each other, and learning how to open ourselves up to the endless support is one of the biggest things we can do for ourself. Enjoy your week!
