How is your Self-Care Practice? Energies are intense and self-care is so important these days. Everyone is feeling it and we need to make sure that we are taking care of ourselves. Sometimes turning inward is the cure for the stress of what is happening in the world. The more you are connected to your own Inner Light, the less you will be affected by outside influences.
Find what brings you joy, what fuels you, what you are passionate about, and what brings you purpose, and do more of those things. No matter what you are doing make sure you are aligning with your truest self and doing it from your heart.
Let go of what you can’t control. This does not mean remain complacent or apathetic, but just accept what you can’t change in the moment and remain as neutral as possible. Have fun, play and get out into nature. This will raise your vibration and you will experience more joy, which may inspire others to do the same.
When you start to feel tired, or overwhelmed by life events, take a step back and pause a moment. Take a few deep breaths and try to put your feet on the earth. When you are grounded, you feel stronger in every way. Do what your heart calls you to do. Always follow your own truth and do what YOU feel is right. Align with your most authentic self. Be yourself and SHINE YOUR LIGHT!!!
