The last year and a half has been A LOT.
But even before that, a lot of things were A LOT
And personally, I am also finding peri-menopause to be A LOT.
It's so easy to get stuck in this kind of overwhelm.
Kind of frozen and unable to move forward and too tired to really even think about it.
This is partly because when we're overwhelmed, we stop doing soothing forms of self care and start doing numbing/distracting/avoiding forms of self care.
Of course, it's totally natural to turn to the things that help us avoid our feelings, or distract us from what's happening.
At some point, if you want to go BEYOND the overwhelm, you need to shift away from numbing and towards soothing.
Last week I did Goodbye Pandemic Overwhelm, Hello Dreams class: Sooth Pandemic Overwhelm, Restore Joy + Magic, Grow into your brightest dreams for 2021 class.
(You can get the whole thing right here)
SOOTHE was the first part of the class, because that part has to happen before you can shift into restoring your magic and growing your dreams.
It's how you fill your tank back up.
How are YOU going to do this?
The meditation + journaling class gives you space to do some alchemy work with the quality of soothing, to experience being soothed, and use that experience to spark some ideas of what you need to be doing - the practical changes you need to make in your life, in order to be more SOOTHED so you can begin to move BEYOND the overwhelm.
Later in the class you also connect with your dreams, because dreams help GROW and HEAL us, which can help pull us out of overwhelm too. But it begins with the soothing part.
What came to you during the class about what YOU can do differently, to give yourself more nourishing and soothing?
How are you going to make space to DO these things this week?
Join me live for Creative Genius Planning: live meditation + journaling for working on your genius plan for this week!
It’s happening on Instagram live this morning at 10 am (Central, North America). Join me here, or catch the replay at that same link after we’re done.
We’ll do an alchemy meditation to connect with your intuition and get more clear on what YOU need this week to help move you towards where you want to be.
Then I’ll pick journal prompt cards, for some questions to help figure out HOW to move closer to your dreams this week.
These sessions are MAGIC. Every week I get more emails from people telling me how helpful they are.
