Navigating Seasonal Emotions...
As we approach the festive season, I wanted to take a moment to share some reflections and insights from my personal journey of wellness and self-discovery. Life's constant hustle often pulls us in various directions, but this time of the year serves as a poignant reminder to prioritize our well-being and embrace the spirit of the season.
Heading into the Holidays: A Personal Reflection
In the hustle and bustle of life, it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of responsibilities, often neglecting our own well-being and the spiritual aspect of our existence. For decades, my life was a testament to the belief that the busier, the better – a constant cycle of work and striving for external validation. However, as the years passed, I found myself on a transformative journey, breaking free from generational patterns and embracing a more intentional approach to life.
Navigating Work and Spirit: A Delicate Balance
Acknowledging the connection between wellness and spirit work, I realized the importance of being a steward of my own life. The revelation that being constantly on the go left little room for genuine connections prompted a shift in perspective.
From Overextension to Self-Care: A Personal Evolution
In my earlier years, acts of love towards others often took precedence, while self-neglect prevailed. Breaking free from generational curses, I discovered the power of Human Design and the significance of unpacking and experiencing my own emotions.
Honoring Human Design: A Blueprint for Balance
Learning to lean into my Human Design strategy became crucial for maintaining balance and groundedness. Taking intentional pauses and refraining from action until I am centered has become a non-negotiable part of my wellness routine.
Embracing Emotional Complexity: A Journey Within
With an emotional solar plexus, navigating the myriad of feelings that can arise became a conscious effort. Thanksgiving brought both joy and a deep emotional reflection, leading to intentional connections and self-care practices.
Family Dynamics and Unspoken Lines: Navigating Change
Acknowledging the changing dynamics within the family, I grappled with unspoken shifts and budding familial branches. Coping mechanisms included self-reflection, conversations with loved ones, and engaging in soul-nourishing activities.
Maintaining Balance as a Role Model: An Imperative
Recognizing that to be a role model, maintaining a balanced state of being is imperative. Embracing the hermit aspect of my design while staying connected to the divine allows me to show up authentically in all aspects of life.
Navigating Seasonal Emotions with Intentionality: A Commitment
As I navigate the remaining holiday season, I commit to daily wellness practices, applying the principles of The Four Agreements, and centering on the 5-Reiki Principles. Bold and radical intentionality will guide me through the seasonal emotions, maintaining Wellness as a LifeStyle.
