Firstly I should apologise that I have been a little bit AWOL recently, and had completely abandoned my blog. Part of what I enjoy is writing and I haven't been doing an awful lot recently, instead I've been in a very contemplative headspace and honestly, I've been online a lot less overall too...
This hasn't been a planned thing, nor deliberate, it's just felt 'right'. I guess in some ways, there's been some anxiety around being online, sometimes this happens, it could be down to pressure of needing to show up constantly and then this pressure causes mental + emotional overwhelm. It makes my head feel a little bit too full, noisy.
As a natural creative, I have a lot of ideas come to me a lot throughout the day, and when I say a lot, I mean a lot.
Naturally I want to take action on all these things, because it feels exciting and I want to be able to share my ideas with you, but trying to sift through them all can sometimes feel like trying to find a needle in a hay stack, and so, I can't do any of them.
This also brings me onto being 'neurodivergent' a term I have only recently come across, but something I relate to a lot.
And though all my life I've fought to try and do everything that's in my head, but it is impossible. However, reading up on neurodivergency has helped me realise that actually, some peoples brains are just wired differently. And that's okay.
I don't like labels, but sometimes they can allow us to feel better about something, especially if we believe there is something 'wrong' with us, when actually, there isn't.
So that's how I've felt recently, a little bit mixed, I don't know if this is something you have felt too?
Then, out of nowhere, BOOM! The supreme courts in the US take away women's rights, choices and freedom of their body and what they want to do with it. I honestly can not comprehend it, shouldn't we be going forwards, not back?
I'm quite lost for words in all honesty, how, in 2022 such a decision can be made?
It's frightening, but we can't stand still or stay quiet. Now more than ever we need to use our voices to help overturn this malicious decision.
...On a positive note, I held my Summer Solstice Sister Circle last night, which was just UNREAL!! 🔥
I decided to hold it nestled between the summer solstice and new moon for extra spicy energy!
There was a lot of high, super charged, potent emotion and energy rife in the air amongst all the women present last night, and partly to do with the decision in America.
Some of these emotions included:
I too, felt a heaviness over me.
The intention of these circles (or at least at mine) is to be able to release and let go of the things that are weighing us down and no longer serve us.
It's a space where us women are able to come together, connect in a safe space and openly share, without judgement, about what is going on for us.
Having trust in yourself, but also each other.
I guided them through a very powerful meditation and hypnosis, which delved down deep into their subconscious mind, where change and transformation can take place in order for you to heal what has been going on inside of you. And boy was it powerful, tears where falling from cheeks as I witnessed transformation taking place amongst the women before me 💛
From here, with having released through our subconscious mind, I took it into the body as we stood to shake it all off and out!
Whilst they shook it off and changed their state, I prepared the cacao for each of the ladies, which was silky, smooth and bittersweet, but an incredible heart opener and was definitely enjoyed by all.
Whilst hearts where open we set positive intentions for going forwards into the next (last) 6 months of the year.
This is when the energy lifted and everyone began to feel much lighter 🙏🏻
Ending the circle by expressing gratitude and sharing a beautiful group hug.
If you haven't been to a sister circle and are reading this thinking "omg I need to go to one of these" do it, because it will be an experience to remember and it's life changing.
I tend to hold them monthly, so keep your eyes peeled for my next and I hope to see you there 💖
