- Wake up tomorrow and spend at least two minutes setting your intentions and gratitude for the day

- Sit in meditation and allow yourself to feel out your feelings
- Write in your journal
- Jump around in the leaves
- Walk and take in all that is the fall. Take note or photos of the colors, sights, sounds and even smells

- Know that it is ok to take breaks, it is ok to take some time for yourself and rest
- Remember it is also good to get back on the horse
- Reflect, release and restart!
Awhile back I had mentioned about doing a new moon ceremony. The new moon was in her maiden stage and in-between Scorpio and Sagittarius. I did a lot of spiritual work on reflection upon myself, releasing negative energy and unwanted behaviors, as well as attracting the positive attributes that I so long to work on. I knew it was time to take my practice to the next level so I set my intentions, gather my supplies and set up sacred space. With the moon in transition between Scorpio and Sagittarius, I was thrusted into energy of getting shit done and doing things I want, both qualities brought on by each sign. Since I have a lot of Scorpio in my chart I got hit pretty hard with, where is your life going, and it really packed a punch. I admire both of these signs a lot, Scorpio's for their determination and give no f*<ks attitude, and Sagittarius's for their I do what I want and sense of adventure attitudes. It's so intoxicating.
I prayed, honored my Goddess, lit candles, smudged, and burned intentions. Burning stuff is one of the highlights of intention and energy works. I love getting things out on paper, burning them in my tiny cauldron and releasing them into the universe. Sometimes, forgetting that energy and intention work is extremely powerful. That old saying, "Be careful what you wish for.." is very true.While I did want to do some release and reflection work, I did not intend for the powerful blow that the universe (my higher power) handed me. Within the next couple of days I got a cold, boo! Not that anyone likes a cold but this one was definitely one of an energetic nature and I was not as prepared as I thought. I can not lie at first I had no idea as to why I got a cold, I am pretty healthy and rarely get a cold. I'm talking about maybe twice a year if that and not for very long either. But this is the second one in almost two months and both of which have lasted almost two weeks. What in the sam hill!
I have gone through so many emotions, feelings and emotional release the past two weeks I honestly thought I was fighting a depression spiral. I finally talked to a good friend of mine who helped me trace back my steps and realize what was going on. After about an hour of talking through some of my actions and what was going on she pointed out to me that my body was reflecting all of what was going on inside. Think Elsa from Frozen, minus the fun whirlwind of snow and ice. I was battling with my internal wants and needs, releasing the old to make way for the new. almost everything I asked to release energetically is what I went through emotionally the past couple of weeks. Despite the runny nose, coughing and other side effects of a cold, I really love when these types of moments happen. It's like a reassurance that our spirituality is working. Now while I don't pressure others to follow the same path as me, i do encourage them to find one that is appealing and attractive to them. One of our gifts as humans is spirituality, no matter what you believe, it's powerful.
I've worked through relationships, friendships, fear of failure, life decisions, my path and even my confidence. Most of what I have gone through in recognition is my self love and personal care. By being so wrapped up in trying to get a business going, blogging, products, coaching and all of the other things I have going on I have forgotten how to practice what I preach. So yesterday, I finally felt better and as the sun rose into our windows I knew it was going to be a good day. Before I spun around and put my feet on the floor I mentally said, "Today is going to be a great day, today I am open to receive blessings." As I placed my feet on the floor I knew my intentions were in place and I was ready for the day. I made sure to pull on the positive energy that was coming in and not only do some personal development work but also have some fun for myself. I wanted to remember the primary foods that are important to me. I also wanted to move, move my body, move my spirit and move what was left over and release it out of me. I did just that. I put on some music, danced, hooped, and I even brought out my belly skirt and light sabers. To say I had fun would be an understatement. Rusty, out of breath and smiling, I was brought back to the things that brought me to happiness before.
It is amazing how easy it is to forget ourselves, we are so busy trying to reach certain goals we forget how to play, how to rest, how to work, and how to live. Less than two months till the new year and we are reminded how fast time goes by. Now is the time to do some reflection work. What do you really want out of life? What to you need to be happy? When was the last time you worked on you? What are you grateful for? These are all good things we need to ask ourselves as the autumn winds carry our intentions away. With all that is going on in the world we can not afford to live our lives for someone else. Spend time with those you love, laugh often and do you. The full moon is coming up and with that sets certain things into motion and into place. So take some time and write down things you want, things you want to release, things you want to attract, your dreams, goals and wishes. Really think about them and get ready to do the work, cause it comes at you from the left field.
