In my last post I told you guys about how I was going through a tough time the past two weeks. Spending countless minutes battling with my ego and self esteem in one mix of a small melt down. It was like walking through the Swamps of Sadness (Never ending story reference). Fighting my way through the muck to find a direction and sign to move forward. That is how I describe getting through a depression spell. Working through the muck, sticks, and sadness. I did it, and with some help I was able to get back to the basics.
I woke up last Friday morning with a fire ignited in my gut and my heart filled with light and passion.
I decided to try out my old morning routine which got me started a few years ago. It was how I stayed happy and began my journey to where I am now. My routine; Wake up and before I put my feet on the ground, I say three things that I am grateful for. I follow this by saying good morning to my cats, plants and the sun, while boiling water for my tea. This is followed by 45-90min of hula hooping, dance and/or yoga. Once I get my energy up and mood lifted, I write in my journal and then prepare for my day. Let me just say, it was exactly what I needed. I felt free, alive and filled with purpose. The ideas started to flow and my mind was set at ease. By getting back on the proverbial horse I was able to get back to me. Go figure right? Let's be honest, if I talk the talk I must walk the walk, right? Well it was high time I started doing it again.
In the past few days I have paid closer attention to my heart. Listening to it, acknowledging what it wanted and nurturing what it really needed.
Your heart is a direct link to your spirit, true self, and your connection to the Divine, (The universe, God, or which ever you prefer). It wants you to go for what you love, crave and desire. My heart was practically screaming at me, yelling from the dark. I have tried to cover up my true desires and needs by pretending that they weren't "appropriate", or I would tell my self that I didn't have the time. It suddenly hit me that in the past few weeks I had been living contradictory to not only my beliefs but also my way of life.
I wasn't speaking my truth.
Another aspect of my life I was not focusing on was my spiritual practices. I have fallen off that train as well. But I am learning that life is a process, a journey, and I shouldn't get to hard on myself. I just had to get back up and pick back up. Read my books and blogs, practice yoga, and get back into my meditation. A couple of days ago I was scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed and came across a blog that read monthly horoscopes. Pretty cool, never really read a horoscope for more than a day before. So I scrolled down, searching for Aquarius and when I read the description I was baffled.
It was exactly what I was going through, even better it was mostly about finding my voice and my heart!
When we live, listening to our spirits and our hearts we are living like stars. Shining brightly for all to see. When you shine from within you are radiating confidence, happiness and empowerment. So let your light shine, listen to your heart and speak your truth.
