This is the daily post for Monday, which I send out to everyone on Sunday because some people have more time to check in with us on Sundays. The daily posts are on our private blog - so this is the place to leave comments, thoughts, questions, ideas - where no one outside of this group can see them.
Catch the latest replays:

Slow the fuck down! BE as powerful, creative + magnetic as you are Zoom call/community spell.
Feb 28. Get the details here.
You are a creative supernova.
You’re also a sensitive living creature and you need your needs met in order to unfurl the full magnificence of who you are.
The world is very loud about telling you to live at it’s pace. You have got to slow WAY the fuck down first, then find your own pace, then find your deeper magic.
What would slowing down look like for you?
Slow down can meant a lot of different things. What comes to mind for you? What part of your life do you want to slow down in?
We recognize that slowing down is not always possible! There are external factors that can make this impossible. And then there are internal voices that can tell us it’s impossible when it’s actually not. Notice all of your external obstacles and internal reactions as you explore these questions.
Journal about this, follow your thoughts wherever they go and feel the feelings that come up in the process.
Next prompt: Where is it SCARY for you to slow down?
I talk a lot about the the oppressive systems we live in, like capitalism, colonialism and white supremacy (which includes ableism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia).
I talk about them because these are external forces that make it harder for all of us to BE our authentic selves and pursue our dreams. NOT talking about them leaves them as these invisible forces which means we are powerless against them.
Talking about them makes them visible. Once you can see them you can stop them from stopping you, you are no longer powerless.
A lot of approaches to healing focus on “Don’t be negative!” and “Don’t blame anyone or anything, take responsibility for your life!!”
But by not being able to “blame” whatever was responsible for terrible things that happened to you, you take the blame yourself for the way those things impacted you. THIS CREATES SHAME, THIS DOES NOT CREATE HEALING. It means the impacts of those things will continue to impact you.
The word “blame” feels so loaded, but there is nothing wrong with assigning responsibility to the responsible parties.
I don’t blame the government or my parents for the state of my life.
But my eyes are open on my healing journey.
Which means: I don't blame MYSELF for all the times I failed. By acknowledging that certain things made certain things hard for me, I acknowledge the truth, I make space to process my feelings, and I free myself of the ways that these things impacted me and I empower myself to make a different choice.
This is healing. And you’ve got to SLOW WAY THE FUCK DOWN before you can access it.
So - let's not avoid the places where slowing down is scary.
If the thought of slowing down feels appealing but scary, if you have a lot of stories about why you CAN'T slow down - let's acknowledge all of that so that it doesn't turn into an invisible internal obstacle.
What's happening for you this week? What are you working on with your dreams?
