Gotta love the releasing power of a full moon. The revelations that come with them and the epiphanies they bring. Today is no different for me.
When I first started my journey on this woo-woo walk, I discovered the power of meditation. I was invited to meditate for 5 minutes daily. I’m not sure where I got the impression that I needed to increase that time, but I put pressure on myself to meditate at least 15 minutes a day.
If there’s pressure involved in anything for me, eventually I just won’t do it. Such is a day in the life of a rebel, I suppose.
But I felt Spirit nudging me to meditate, but I misunderstood the message that it must be for an extended period of time.
*thunk* “Nah girl! Just DO IT”
I have sassy spirit guides. Probably because I can be pretty spirited myself. 🤣
I eventually realized that a daily meditation can be just a few minutes… mine is roughly 6:30 and it puts me in a glorious mindset for the rest of the day.
This leads me to this dream… this vision I’ve had for years(?) now of moving beyond just 1 on 1 work and including 1 to many so I can increase my impact. Sound familiar to you? Many coaches and service providers have a similar vision… we can only reach so many people and cloning ourselves just isn’t possible yet.
Spirit has put the vision on my heart but for a while but I had the intuitive nudge that it wasn’t quite the right time. That I would know when it was. I would try super hard to make time but it never would quite fit in.
Then Spirit opened up a path AND put forth an amazing collaboration partner. And I felt NOW was the time. And try as I might, somehow the time still kept slipping away.
I’m blessed with a steady stream of clients and collaboration partners that keep me active and productive. Time is a fleeting thing. I have to be very intentional and gentle with her.
During this morning’s meditation, it hit me.
I was graced with a glorious Divine Download, a thunk on the noggin by Spirit. Perhaps it’s obvious to most, I’ve probably read it a gazillion times somewhere but this thick skull needs to experience things on her own.
Spirit showed me my typical daily routine and reminded me that I am responsible for making the time to implement that 1 to many model in my business. And I can start with just a couple of hours a day a few days a week in the morning after my usual morning routine. Just be intentional about it.
Well smackity-jackity, Barb. 🤦♀️
Baby steps. But you have to take those initial steps.
The very thing I tell my clients when they have their prep work to complete for their brand and website / business evolution.
Sometimes the teacher becomes the student, do we not?
And since tonight is the super moon of all super moons for 2022, and I’m feeling especially magical, I decided to perform a releasing ceremony. I wrote down a few things I want to release, tore them into individual pieces of paper, and placed them individually into my abalone shell bowl and lit them on fire until they became ash.
Here’s what I have released this super moon of July 2022:
1: immobility in my body.
2: immobility and stagnancy toward making moves to accomplish those dreams I have in my business.
3: the fears that have kept me from taking those steps forward. (I was also told not to give voice to those fears. Just to let them go.
4: being so critical of myself.
I’m curious… in what ways do you get in your own way? And what will you be releasing this full moon?
