One of the main shifts I saw for myself in 2015 was staying consistent on keeping monthly new moon intentions and full moon releasing. As we have all been settling into the new year, we have been setting intentions for the year. Creating a tone for what we would like for ourselves over the next year. Most of us have also been feeling back into our daily wellness routines that we may have strayed from in the midst of holiday events. I want to share some of my intentions, some examples of new moon intention setting rituals, how I create sacred space to mindfully practice a daily routine and curate energy for the day, month and year. This new moon is tomorrow Janurary 9th. Which ps is also registration for Spirit Weavers Gathering! You know I will be there. So get ready to create your sacred space and set your intentions for this moon cycles growth. Read more
“Your external reality is a reflection of your internal vibration.”
I spent the last few weeks enjoying the holidays, but really felt the need for some deep reflection on the year while beginning to set some mindful intentions going into 2016. I spent Christmas night under the full moon cleansing and letting go of the anger that had seemed to inch its way into my heart. The last few months were filled with heavy emotions surrounded by sick loved ones, my own health, issues from the past arising, car issues and relationships.

This year has continued to be such a transition from living in Colorado to coming back to California and spending quality time with family. Being home with the family allowed me to really have fun with homemade gift ideas and enjoy using my creativity to make gifts for friends and family that are made with love, healthy and delicious.

The holidays are filled with busy schedules more so than usual, so please don’t forget with all the sharing, celebrating and gift giving how important it is to spend time with yourself. Give yourself permission to create your own bath time sanctuary away from the world. You need it, you deserve it and really everyone else will feel the effects of your self care rituals.
Start by cleaning your bathroom with non-toxic ingredients. Include some essential oils and some grounding incense such as palo santo, vetiver or cedar wood. Gather your favorite music playlist or create a new station to enhance your relaxation, meditation or creativity. Pick some soothing organic products to pamper yourself from head to toe. Hang your favorite robe, pjs and fluffy organic cotton towel nearby so you may finish your bath feeling warm and snuggle up. Make some organic soothing peppermint or calming chamomile tea. Create whatever your space needs to allow you to relax, feel at peace and be all about you. Yes you!

It is important during these times to really set time aside for yourself with a self care practice. This month I will be writing a lot about holiday ideas and incorporating self care to your busy schedule.
