January is the month of renewed will. Imagine yourself stepping out from behind a gold, shimmering curtain and into your life for the very first time. Imagine finally arriving into your Body-Earth vessel and see the infinite universe, the infinite possibilities, and the infinite time that you have to make your dreams come true. Take every breath with gratitude and take everyday as your first day on Earth. Use this excitement, adventure, energy, and will. Channel it into everything and anything you do, from taking a sip of water and being in awe of its taste and texture, to starting a new project or taking care of yourself. Bring your sense of AWE into every aspect of your life. See yourself as the walking miracle that you are. See yourself as pure magic. See the wonder in being YOU. This perspective will allow you to carry this new found sense of will and excitement throughout the year. Perspective is everything and you get to decide how you want to experience your life from this moment on.
March is here and we are beginning to clear out the old, stagnant energy from the winter months and let in the bright energy of the Spring Equinox. The energies this month are pulling everything to the surface and making us look at what we can no longer put off looking at in order to make room for what we want to embody from now on. That is why the overwhelming theme of March is clarity. Clarity brings us perspective, and the way we can achieve it is through the questions we ask ourselves and the amount of self-care and love we answer those questions with.
The questions to ask yourself are: Who am I? What am I doing? What do I want? Do I actually feel the way I do or am I empathing my emotions from the collective?
The way to refresh, step back, and gain clarity is through sitting in stillness and checking in with yourself. Find a quiet space, take a few deep, belly breaths, and just sit. Be completely still and feel the space between you.
Ask yourself: Am I feeling all right? What’s bothering me? What’s triggering me? What are the emotions that keep coming back for my love and attention? What are these emotions trying to tell me?
The next step is to go deeper into your self-awareness. Ask yourself: How do I treat others? How do I treat myself in front of others? Do my actions come from self-love? Do they even come from me?
Once you emerge from your self-inquiry, greet your newfound awareness and clearer view of self with unconditional love. Learn to recognize the soul who has now emerged via mirror work. Look in the mirror and give yourself direct eye contact. Say hello to yourself! I see you! I love you! There’s no better way to start off your day then with greeting yourself with an excited “Good morning beautiful one!”
This is the time to really tune in and listen to your needs. We need to take the time to love and respect that we have a physical body and an Earth Mother who wants us to plug in and charge ourselves. We need to give ourselves the same attention we give our cell phones. Are we overheating? Is it time to upgrade our software? Low energy or battery life indicates that we need to plug into Gaia via grounding, going outside and walking in nature, and breathing. We also don’t want to overcharge and kill our battery with apathy, laziness, or self-medicating and numbing.
March is the month to embrace self-care and being okay with keeping it to yourself. You can share your self-care journey when you’re ready. You don’t have to throw yourself out into the open and keep people in the loop either. Take this time to go inside your cocoon and rest, reflect, and recalibrate so that you can emerge into this reality with a sturdy foundation built from clarity, perspective, and unconditional love. All is well.
