Remember who you are & your purpose

Live Call: Remember Who You Are & Reconnect With Your Purpose

Dearest soul sister,

As I come to the end of my epic Sacred Journey in Australia I am filled with gratitude. This journey has been such a wild roller coaster ride with many ups and downs but mostly it has been deeply magical. I have met and reconnected with some of my dearest old and new soul sisters here. But most of all I have come home.

I have reconnected with an ancient part of my soul that has been longing for this moment forever.

There is so much to share and I will as soon as I have allowed it all to sink in and integrate into every cell of my body. I am so grateful for this journey and every soul who has supported me to say yes to this.

I have been received with so much love and generosity and I wish to especially thank my beautiful friends Amy Taylor-Kabbaz, Belinda Pate-MacDonald, Priscilla Bradshaw and all of your sacred circles of soul sisters (Nina, Karin, Jenny…). My mind and heart have been blown wide open and I feel whole.

Here are some gorgeous photos of the sacred places I visited with Belinda and if you close your eyes you can open up and connect with the Ancestors and the powerful energy that radiates from these magical places. I am so grateful to Mama Earth for holding us and to the ancestors of these sacred places. I am so blessed to have been invited here and I am so honoured.

Remember who you are your purpose

I can feel the deep call now to share what I am meant to share with you, my beautiful tribe, and to dive deeper into my truth and purpose. My whole being is radiating with love and light and I feel more aligned and connected than ever. I would love for you to share my next (virtual) journey with me on February 27 for a live call. 

Together we will reconnect with who we truly are and our purpose. Click here to sign up and join us. I can’t wait.

Hello sweet soul,

The New Moon is here and with all the energies swirling around right now I felt guided to gather with my soul sisters to honour this time and to lean into each other for support. There is so much fear, pain, anger and grief washing over us in waves. How do we stay clear and with open hearts during times like these? 

If you are feeling overwhelmed or feeling so much  that you don’t know how to create a more peaceful world, I’ve created a 7 Day Free Clear + Shine Challenge for you. We start today and each day I share a Facebook Live with you in my private Facebook group The Wise Women Circle here. All you need to do is sign up here and join us on Facebook. 

Each day I’ll share a practice to help you clear your energy, heal anything that’s ready to be healed and call in your deepest desires. Together we share our stories and what is coming up for each one. Together we release and make space for something new.

I am feeling so supported by the energy of the New Moon and as I was gathering with my soul sisters by the river yesterday I could feel how deep this sacred work truly is. When you give yourself permission to release, heal and embrace all of who you are – miracles happen. When you embrace who you are and connect with All That Is you are inspiring others to do so too.

As we drummed and sang together around the fire I could feel how we all relaxed and went deeper inside. Letting go. Releasing what was. Opening our hearts wider to call in our desires. Together we heal. Together we RISE.

Your light is needed. Your unique essence is a part of this world and we long to see you express it fully. So dance, dear sister! Sing, drum and let life light you up from inside and out.

2017 New Year Intuitive Reading + My Favourite Practices

Hello beautiful friend,

Happy New Year, my loves! Thank you for being here and for being a part of my dear tribe. I am SO grateful for you and I am very honoured to share my insights and intuitive guidance with you. You are a blessing in my life. 

2017 is feeling pretty big already! I am so excited to share my very first 2017 New Year Intuitive Reading + My Favourite Practices with you. I hope you’ll love the video above and towards the end I’m channeling a powerful and very loving message from my spirit guides. I hope it feeds your whole being. And please share with your tribe if it resonates.

As I share in the video I started doing an oracle card reading when my guides nudged me to do this video so I’m also shaing the cards and messages that came through here.

2017 New Year Intuitive Reading + My Favourite Practices

2017 New Year Intuitive Reading My Favourite Practices

Overall messages for 2017:

Gemini – Communication is so important. Nurture all your relationships – especially your soul-mate connection with your partner or others – and consider the power of your words. You are a powerful co-creator and leader so connect with your inner guidance and share the messages that come from your soul. Speak from a place of love and in alignment with your highest self.

Thoth/Seshat – Sacred Scripture. Study the ancient learning and wisdom. Dive into the old scriptures or explore magic in order to learn about your own life pathway. This may include past lifetimes that are having an impact on you now. Release everything that isn’t helping you to move forward so you can truly shine this year.

Challenge/Obstacle to overcome in 2017: 

Athena – Peace is always possible. Breaking patterns. It’s time to show up fully and create change. Deep transformation of old patterns and ways of being is possible. Your old patterns will keep leading you to the same place so it’s time to break them and focus on peace and new ways of being. Dare to dream of peace and Athena will send you her wise owl to assist you. You are supported.

January-March 2017: 

Wolf – New pathways. It’s time to follow a new pathway or take  a new direction. It may be time to look for a new teacher or new teachings. Or maybe you need to go within and take some time to listen to your own inner guidance and wisdom. It’s time to let go of the old and create a new path. It’s time for you to lead your tribe!

April-June 2017: 

Serapis Bay – Ascension and Sacred Sound. Pay attention to where you are losing energy and where you are wandering off your true path. Refocus on your truth and your purpose in this life. Don’t let the outer world pull you off course or distract you. Reconnect with Source and your true self and you will be guided.

July-September 2017: 

Capricorn – This is a practical and grounded sign. You will receive all the support you need to move through all the obstacles and challenges on your path to fullfill your dreams in life or business. This IS the work you are here to do. Through this journey you will grow into the person you are here to BE.

October-December 2017: 

Siddhartha – Balance, the middle way. If you find yourself living in one extreme or another, now is a great time to come back into balance. Find your own middle way and trust what feels right to you. Seek inner balance and trust that when you ask, you will be guided. Only love is real and eternal so come back into the vibration of love and you will feel whole again.

I am using the beautiful Sacred Journey Oracle Cards by the Australian author and artist Lesley Ann Crossingham.

Workbook2017

I am super happy to share some of my favourite practices and tools to dream a new year into being. As an intuitive I always feel challenged to find the right balance between getting clear on my goals, mapping them out in my calendar and being in the flow and listening to my inner guidance. Maybe you feel this way too?

I think that for many intuitives it’s easier to receive the guidance than it is to set practical, down to earth goals and stick to them. For me it’s been a challenge to embrace both aspects as I tend to either be completely filled with the guidance and bliss out OR plan and then push to make it all happen (type A personality, hello!).

This post is a mix of my favourite tools and ways to dream my new year into being and I hope it inspires you. As usual I hope you use what resonates and find your own ways of working and being that sing to your heart. Your gifts are so needed. Find a way to move through the resistance and shine your beautiful light.

My favourite tools

Leonie Dawson’s Workbooks, Diary Planner, Wall Calendar and To Do List (50% off right now!)

I’ve been using Leonie’s workbooks since 2011 and absolutely LOVE them. They are both very practical/strategic AND creative/intuitive. I start by doing the closing ceremony and go through the past year (not always fun but SO important and powerful).

When the past year feels complete I start filling out my new year’s goals, wishes and dreams. Some years I’ve finished at the end of January and other years many months later. What matters is that you do this at your own pace and embrace your own rhythm and timing.

I listen to my inner voice when I do this work but when the resistance comes up I work through it.

Don’t let the resistance be a reason to stop and go into hiding.

2017 New Year Intuitive Reading My Favourite Practices

When I have filled out my workbooks I start mapping out my year and fill my diary planner with goals for each month and tasks to do so I reach these goals. This is a great way to see if the dreams that are in my head are actually possible when it comes to the time/energy balance. I check my planner regularly (at least once a week) and re-ajust when needed.

I use my wall calendar to map out my bigger goals like creation and launch of my services (like the Shine Your Light in 2017 and Clear Your Path & Shine) and events (No Limits Live Event in Brussels on March 24-26).

This big calendar really helps me to see my whole year and I quickly notice if I’m trying to do too much at the same time (hrm…). It’s also a great way to make sure I have enough support to move through the busier times in my business with more ease and flow (instead of suddenly feeling overwhelmed and having to push through).

Some of my favourite things in Leonie’s bundle is the word of the year. This year my word came to me and wouldn’t leave me until I said yes. EXPAND. 

It’s such a big word and it is already stretching me in so many ways. I have set the intention to allow myself to expand with EASE this year . Every time I’m being asked to grow and open up to more I ask for the easiest way to do this. Of course it’s not always super easy but I give myself the time and loving support I need and it feels very different from before.

Every year I create a painting with my word and keep it in my living room/work space so I remember the message. If you haven’t chosen a word for this year yet, my dear friend Jackie Stewart created this beautiful guided meditation here. It’s a free gift and you are in for a treat. Jackie has the most amazing voice!

My favourite rituals

I’m such a big fan of rituals and ceremonies! I love connecting deeper and tapping into the powerful energy network that surrounds us all.

Inviting In The New Year

One of my favourite rituals is to gather with my soul sisters in a sacred place in nature. We take the time to connect with the land, drum, sing, dance and do anything we feel guided to do. We all share what we are letting go of from the past year and show gratitude for all the challenges and the blessings. We also say what we long for in the new year. When this feels complete we all turn around and stand hand in hand in our circle. It’s now time to connect with the elements, our support team and each other. When we feel ready we let go of each others hands and take one step forward.

This is such a simple yet very powerful ritual. When you are present and show up fully, surrounded by people you love, it feels amazing. You can do this ritual even if the new year has already started. It’s never too late to clear out and release the past so you can embrace the now.

Make A Dreamboard

This is one of the ideas suggested in Leonie’s workbooks and I’ve been creating dreambords for 5 years now. It’s such a powerful – and fun – way to get out of our heads and into our hearts. When you ask Spirit to guide you to find the right images and words for your dreamboard you tap into something much vaster than yourself. Let your intuition guide you, have fun and see where this journey takes you!

Create A Daily Practice

This is probably the most important and powerful ritual for me. I’ve created a daily practice that I do every.single.day. Sometimes it takes me 5 minutes and at other times I do it for hours. Although it’s amazing to do big, elaborate rituals I find that my daily ones help me stay on track and keep my energy clear and sparkly. The more I grow – and my business expands – the more important it is to take exquisite care of ourselves.

When you have a daily practice that supports you and helps you stay connected to Source you will spend less time feeling overwhelmed and lost. Find something that works for you and commit to it.

My daily practice is to release, ground myself and create loving boundaries (I created a guided meditation here so you can do this too!). Sometimes I do this while I take my shower and visualize the water clearing my body, mind, soul and then filling me up with golden light. Others times I stand barefoot in my garden and connect with Mother Earth and All That Is.

The next step is to set an intention for my day. I get clear on where I wish to direct my energy and how I want to feel. If I feel guided I also connect with my Spirit Guides (you can learn how to do this here) and ask them what I need to hear or transmit that day. Voilà! I’m ready to greet my day and embrace whatever comes up. I regularly check in to make sure I’m relaxed, focused and in alignment.

2017 New Year Intuitive Reading My Favourite Practices

Tune In To The Energy Of The New Year

It’s so exciting to tune in to the energy of each new year and there are many ways you can do this. If you are an intuitive/healer/channel just use the way you normally connect with Spirit and ask what the new year is here to teach you. Connect with the energy of this year and ask what you can do to embrace it. What are the big lessons, challenges and gifts that the new year bring you?

I’m loving this year so far and the energy is SO loving, soft and yet very powerful and focused. I feel in complete alignment with who I am and my Life’s Path. 

I’ve been offering Intuitive Readings for many years now and love supporting others to tap into the energy of the new year. If you wish to receive loving support and guidance find out more and book your space here.

My favourite support to stay on track

A Mastermind/Sacred Business Circle

No matter how great or on track you feel right now, having your own business and/or being on a spiritual path can be lonely and at times very challenging. My number one support is my mastermind/sacred circle. Being surrounded by creative, highly intuitive wise women inspires me to expand into my own highest potential.

Many of us are so used to supporting others but don’t allow ourselves to receive this kind of powerful and loving support for us. If this is you, I invite you to get in touch with what you truly need and ask for it. Reach out to the right people and when they say yes – allow yourself to receive their love.

This year I will offer two group programs – Clear Your Path & Shine that starts in April (registrations will open soon!) and Embrace Your Purpose in September. Both groups are for women who are ready to embrace this level of support but don’t feel like creating it. You are so welcome to join us and make sure you are on my Love Letter list to be the first to know when the doors open (+ receive extra gifts!).

If you don’t want to invest in support, just create your own mastermind. Reach out to people you feel would be a great fit, get together and set a structure and house rules that work for you. Tweak as you go. That’s how I started my first mastermind a few years ago and it was so awesome. I’ve been refining the structure and energy over time and now know exactly what I need to create the most powerful and loving space and community.

clear-your-path-and-shine

Energy Work

Most of my amazing clients come to me because they need support to stay focused and aligned on their path in their lives and/or businesses so I know how important this is. Although I’ve got lots of tools and techniques that I use for myself I also love receiving support from my incredibly gifted soul sisters.

My go to wise women for energy work are Lara Waldman (she is gentle, graceful and offers very deep healing around money and abundance), Lysa Black (super powerful and she knows exactly how to access the deep wounds so they can heal), Ruby Toad (I always get my yearly Oracle Card Reading from her and she’s down to earth and awesome), Belinda Pate-MacDonald (such a gifted healer, channel and her connection to the earth is amazing) and Jackie Stewart (shamanic wild woman, essence practitioner and so great at holding space for all the emotions to flow).

There are so many amazing energy workers out there so let yourself be guided. Trust in your own inner voice and only receive support from someone who feels right to you. It’s so important to connect with practitioners who resonate with you on a soul level and that you feel safe and comfortable with.

Exquisite Self Care

The better I take care of myself the more I can enjoy life and business. It all starts on the inside. After years of not taking great care of my body I now get regular massages, go to yoga, sweat in the sauna, take long walks in the woods and take more time off to rest than ever before in my life. It’s so worth it!

Self care is what you long for. It can be anything from lying in bed for hours and reading a great book to going for a run. Working (even if you love what you do) is not self care so if you have a hard time finding something you enjoy I invite you to explore this more. Connect with your body and ask it what I needs. Listen. And act on the guidance you receive.

Trust that your body knows exactly what it needs. When you pay attention and allow yourself to receive what you truly long for, you will receive more guidance and it will flow.

Time Off To Play

I can get so stuck in my head and completely immersed in my to do list. That’s why play time is so important! Step away from your computer, forget your cell phone and go outside. Take a day/week/month off and have fun. Explore a part of the woods you’ve never been to, go on a road trip with your soul sisters, go to a great concert with your man or go to the movies in the middle of the day.

What did you enjoy doing as a child? What brings you joy? What new thing would be fun to try?

13621581_10154228372085242_1379956280_o

I  love going to creative dance workshops, paint, take the train and hike up my favourite mountains. If you think you don’t have time to play and have fun you definitely have to do it :). I often resist stepping away from my work (because I love it so much!) but my best ideas and divine downloads come to me when I’m doing something else.

I hope you enjoyed this post and would love to know what resonated the most with you. And please share your favourite ways to dream your new year into being.

Let’s create more magic together!

Sending you waves of love from a cold but cosy south of France,

2016 Challenges & Blessings

2016challengesblessings

Hello dear soul sister,

How are you feeling, sweet soul? I am loving the energy of 2017 and last year seems so far behind me. I’ve done a lot of releasing – both for myself and for my clients so I feel like I’m truly at the beginning of a new year. If you feel like 2016 is still clinging on or you are floating in between spaces, I’m doing a free live call/sacred ceremony this week to release and call in the energy of the new year. It’ll be so wonderful to connect and spend this sacred time together. There is nothing like clear and focused group energy to amplify the support around and inside us. Gathering in groups like this is one of the biggest blessings for me – both in my life and in business.

You are welcome to join us by signing up here. If you can’t attend live, everyone on this list will receive the recording afterwards. And if you long for sacred 1:1 guidance and energy work, there are still spaces left for my Shine Your Light in 2017 packages here (only until January 31) and my single sessions here.

livecallin2017

Let’s come back to my review of 2016! Here we go:

My Word Of The Year:

img_3405-instaRECEIVE. What an interesting word this has been to integrate. This year I realized just how much I still resist receiving. I’ve been doing deep inner work on money and abundance with my dear soul sister Lara Waldman and this has been a HUGE one. 

I’ve paid attention to every part of my body and heart that has resisted to open up and gently, lovingly started to come back to my true self. It’s been a beautiful, challenging and at times very magical journey. I’ve fully opened up and accepted even more love, gifts, money and support this year.

I am SO grateful for my amazing soul sisters and family for allowing me to feel so safe and loved that I’ve been able to welcome in more of all the good things I’ve been asking for.

This word will continue to guide me for a long time and I am now very aware of what’s going on inside me. I have great tools to release the resistance and blocks and I am deeply committed to receiving even more in the new year.

My Dreams That Came True:

2016 was a challenging year in many ways and some of the things that happened globally at times broke my heart and spirit. My life and business on the other hand were really exciting and some of my big dreams came true. I loved going back and reviewing my year in Leonie Dawson’s workbook and I couldn’t believe how much actually happened in only one year.

I started to move away from 1:1 sessions to group circles and programs in a way that felt really powerful and authentic. I love intimate soul connections and realized that this is possible with the right groups of people and a clear, aligned intention. This big leap was a big challenge and triggered all my buttons but wow, what a powerful, sacred shift it was!

Let’s dive into the challenges and gifts 2016 brought me and my sacred biz…

// Amazing support: I let go of everything and everyone who wasn’t supporting me or my business and opened up to an even deeper level of support from the right people for me. I became much firmer about my boundaries and honoured my desires. I let go of my local mastermind and am now open to a new one emerging. My online mastermind is even more powerful and one of the most important parts of my support team. Human relationships can be so challenging but I am willing to show up fully and experience the true magic that happens when the right people gather in sacred circle.

// Self care became a non negotiable: I scheduled in regular massages, energy sessions, creative play time, movement and rest. I don’t have to justify this time or expense to myself anymore and it has become a daily/weekly habit. The better I take care of myself the more I can enjoy life and business. It all starts on the inside.

// I only worked with amazing soul clients: I’ve been very clear and honest both with myself and potential clients about who I wish to work with and also if I believe they will benefit from a certain program. This has been really scary but I have really honoured my intuition on this one. My deepest desire is to be the best guide for my dear clients. If I truly believe they are a great fit for one of my offers I will let them know. And if I don’t, I trust that they will find exactly what they need from someone else. There is a time for everything and we can’t rush healing, growth and expansion. By honouring this I honour YOU.

// I finally created an Intuitive Business Program AND ran my Clear Your Path & Shine Program again: I’ve been called to create a Business Program for Intuitives for a long time and in 2016 it finally happened. Thank you to all my clients and soul sisters who have insisted! I launched Embrace Your Purpose – An Intuitive Business Program for Conscious Entrepreneurs last summer and we started in September. The group of women in this program are absolutely amazing. They are so incredibly gifted, open-hearted and willing to go as deeply as they need in order to create their sacred work and share it with the world. I love every moment creating content and connecting with them and can’t wait to offer this program again (we’ll start in September and the registrations will open in July). I also ran my Clear Your Path & Shine Program and it was so powerful. An amazing group of women, so much depth and powerful shifts in their lives and business. Can’t wait to start this one again in April. 

// I co-created the No Limits Event live in Brussels: My friend Joanna Hennon and I had the crazy, inspired idea to create a live business with heart event here in Europe and we did it. This event helped us expand and embrace our leadership skills in so many ways and it was an incredibly powerful event! Due to demand and because we loved it so much, we are doing another event on March 24-26 –  find out more and join us here. 

2016challengesblessings

// I created my first Intuitive Business talk/workshop/sacred circle: I’ve been nudged to do this for a looong time and after a series of miraculous synchronicities it all fell into place. All I had to do was say yes and show up. The group of wise women who showed up were SO incredible and the space (the beautiful yoga studio Mamita in Stockholm, Sweden) a dream come true. I am so grateful for this gathering and can’t wait to create more.

// Lots of travel to stay alive: This longing seems to grow stronger than ever. and I was so happy and grateful for my incredible long weekend in London to attend my god son’s christening (with my daughter), the No Limits Event weekend in Brussels and two trips to Sweden. More of this please!

// I was invited to speak at Leonie Dawson’s live event in Australia: I’ve been wanting to do more public speaking and I’ve felt the call to go back to Australia again so this was a dream come true. I can’t wait to meet so many of the amazing women in her Shining Academy as well as the others speakers and Leonie! If you’re a member, I’d love to see you at the event – and if not, I’m hoping Leonie will open up for new members in time for the event.

My Dreams That Didn’t Come True:

After counting all my blessings from last year I am totally OK with not reaching all my goals. I feel very much at peace with last year and ready to embrace 2016 with open arms. But here we go:

// I didn’t double my income: I love setting big goals for myself and often I reach them in pretty miraculous ways (including lots of inspired action 😉 ). As I looked back on my numbers I realized that I’ve been in business full time for 5 years and each year my income increases. I work less and my business feels more and more focused and aligned with my purpose. I ACCEPT where I am right now. I am grateful for all the blessings and challenges. I open up to RECEIVE everything that is in alignement with my highest good.

// I didn’t find a bigger house or an office for me: It’s been a pretty wild ride trying to find a new house! First we found one that seemed great but both my husband and I shifted some big stuff and the house was no longer in alignment with us. Although we were all really disappointed I have to trust the process. I’m at a point where I feel like my sense of power, stability and flow has to come from the inside and every time I try to attach it to something outside myself, it slips away. I’d still love to find a bigger house so we can all have some more space but I am open to moving to a different area if this is what is truly right for us. So I surrender and let it all go. And I stay open to receive what is in alignment with my soul.

 

I am so grateful for my life and business and I’m excited to map out the new year and create more magic.

I am getting ready to fly to Australia on a solo adventure in less than 1 month and I am so excited and a little nervous too. I’ll meet some amazing soul sisters that I have never met (or only briefly) IRL and attend two live events. After Leonie’s big Academy Retreat in Canberra I’m going to Danielle Laporte’s event in Sydney, the day before I fly home. Meant to be. I am so grateful for this journey and hope to meet many of you!

How about you, beautiful soul? How was your year and how do you feel about it?

If you haven’t reviewed your year yet, I invite you to take the time to do it now. Listen to your intuition and do it in a way that feels good to you. If you need some support I wholeheartedly recommend using my dear friend Leonie Dawson’s beautifully illustrated and very powerful workbooks and planners.

2016 Challenges Blessings

Releasing This Year Making Space

releasingthisyearmakingspace

It’s been a Big Year and I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels relieved to let this year go. As we approach the end of the year we find ourselves in this in between space. I used to really struggle with this time of the year and was so eager to leave it behind me and jump head first into the New, shiny year.

After a few years exploring different practices I have now started to really appreciate and embrace this space before the end but not quite at the beginning of The New. It’s such an interesting space and this week I took some time to sit down and go through this year. I can’t believe how much has happened! Pretty crazy and quite magical, actually.

As the year is slowly coming to an end I am taking the time I need to feel into it. I’m revisiting the wonderful things, people and projects and acknowledging the joy, love and wisdom they offered me. I also go back to the things that didn’t go as I wanted or that left me feeling angry, disappointed or in pain. I allow for all these experiences to just be and release them as much as I can.

As I stop to let go of the old I make space for the new year to emerge. I start receiving images and visions for 2017 and although I sometimes get really impatient I give them enough space to breathe and take shape in their own time.

I notice that each year I am able to let go more and allow for everything to just be, without having to speed up the process or fix anything that feels broken.

If you are struggling to release this year and are looking for some great practices and tools I’d love to share my favourites.

My favourite tools and practices to release the year:

  • I prepare myself for a really cosy time by cleaning out my bedroom and setting up a sacred space filled with candles, crystals, my favourite coloured pens and notebooks. I make hot tea (chai with almond milk and honey) and bring a plate filled with fresh fruit and chocolate.
    x
  • I allow myself to experience my year once again and make sure I do it on as many levels as possible. I feel everything I need to feel again in my body, I dream it, I paint, draw or collage it to access my creative parts and I write in order to understand both with my mind and my heart (my writing is part information, part channeling).

  • Leonie Dawson’s gorgeous workbooks: I’ve been using these workbooks for 6 years now and LOVE the big section at the beginning where we are invited to rant and rave about our year and get it all out on paper. Often such a relief and there is always powerful medicine even underneath the biggest challenges. This practice helps me get crystal clear on what I’m ready to let go of and what I’m calling in for the New Year. I always feels so clear, focused and deeply grateful after I complete this part. If this resonates, get your copy here.

  • Hiro Boga’s self-paced online retreat, Dreaming In The Dark: This is a loving invitation to dive deeply into the past year and call in the New One by using Hiro’s powerful energy processes that go SO deep. If you love energy work and deep soul explorations this is AMAZING. I signed up for the live online retreat in 2013 and I’ve been using this practice every year to release on all levels of my being and open up to receive the blessings of the new year.

  • Connecting with Nature: I love going outside on the winter solstice to do some shamanic drumming and connect with the energy of the land, the elements and the old year coming to and end. I listen and open up all my senses to receive the guidance coming through.

  • Often when I do big inner work my body feels tense or I feel the need to move (yoga, stretching, dance) so I love receiving a massage to release and integrate all the wisdom.

  • Anything that feels right in the moment and expands my mind, body and soul!

When this first phase feels complete and I feel done with the year I start making space for the new year. This process is slower and I usually let it emerge over a few weeks and until I feel complete.

There are so many ways to dive into this potent time of the year. Our feelings are often raw and tender as the holidays season can bring up family and ancestral wounds and pain. Take your time. Sit with your feelings. Listen to your own guidance and feel into what you need right now.

There is no right or wrong way to do this. Choose your own path, always. TRUST that you know exactly what you need to move through this transition time. Give yourself space to breathe. Say no to invitations that don’t feel right in your heart. Say YES to you and your own desires.

Start right here and take one step forward, inward. Listen. TRUST.

I wish you a sweet end of the year and can’t wait to meet you on the other side. I’ll share more about my new year’s rituals in January so check back in then. I’m doing my very first Instagram challenge to call in the magical new year so join me here and let’s play!
