When I began to write this post the working title was Retreating. I hadn't fully realised the magnitude of the huge shifts in personal growth that I've experienced in the 3 weeks since I had kinesiology with Nicole. Following that up with another enlightening and embodied coaching session with Susana amped things up a whole lot. Talk about raising my vibration! When I came back to finish writing this post, a few thoughts had come at me from the inside, rapid fire style. This follows the story I shared over on Facebook on 18 September. My clair senses are heightened and I intend to hit publish on a follow up post on Empath traits and experiences soon.
I considered it again. Retreating sounded like defeat, not moving towards a less full on daily life with intention and purpose. Going back into the shell I stayed in for so long. Detachment. This theme came up during my session with Nicole. Only it was described as disconnected. I'd gotten so lost in being busy I wasn't reinforcing my extended boundaries. Pesky (but necessary) second layer! I'm surrendering more and more to myself, my intuition and how I feel. With this comes the lesson of self-trust.
It feels silly to write this because I wonder, "shouldn't I have learned this earlier?". It is never too late to learn how to be gentle on ourselves or to drop the guilt and trust that if our intuition tells us we need a break, we take a break.
This post is just a brain detox of a few things that I’ve had in my mind lately.
For the last 2 weeks I’ve taken steps back from the online world little by little. I’ve been so involved in online groups, online courses and researching in general for the perfect answer to whatever questions I have. It has drained me somewhat so I’ve taken some time here and there to re-group and focus on where this path is taking me. I love the communication and vibes in online groups, but it can be really overwhelming when faced with so much information and being the person that I am, I am compelled to read, support and learn. So I’m taking a semi brain break as I like to call it. I’ll reduce the number of tabs open on my laptop. I’ll spend less time online wasting time. I’ll reduce the number of email subscription lists I’m on. I’ll spend (not waste) quality time online with a purpose i.e. real connection, writing, watching course videos and taking notes.
A few weeks ago I had my first kinesiology session followed by coaching from my coach. Since that time I’ve been more open to noticing what I allow into my mind and what not to allow.
I’m also sick of my self-sabotage tactics and inner critic calling me out on why I’m doing what I’m doing and comparing it with what everyone else is doing. And really, what am I doing? First thing is, I plan on including more content. I want to share more of my creative work with you. I want to make more art. I want to share my processes. I want to make art accessible for everyone. I want to share the benefits I have gained from art journaling. I want to create an e-book, a mini art e-course and a soul identity e-course. I want to include all facets of my interests from handcrafting jewellery to moon gazing to shamanic practice to slow cooking to eco beauty & fashion. The ideas are simmering away and calling for attention. I want to support other creatives and feature their stories and work here. I want to bring more good stuff into the world.
As a mega multi-passionate artist, you can imagine that me honing in and trying to focus on just one thing, or even two is pretty difficult. I go to an art shop, enter into a deep meditative state of eye boggling awe as my eyes devour every paint brush, paper and paint colour. I go into a time warp where I am “just buying a few things” only to discover I’ve been in there for an hour or longer (sorry husband!).
It is my intention to bring you richer content and you answering these few questions will really help me out. I value your input! Thank you!
Why do you read my blog? What content do you enjoy? What would you like to see here? How frequently would you visit my blog ie. 3 days a week, once a week, weekday or weekend? Would you want to receive email newsletters fortnightly or more or less frequently? Are you interested in free art zines and printables? I’d really like to know.
