Tonight, EST time beginning at 10:32pm, a New, Super Moon begins. This is a time to really dig deep down and set intentions for yourself. According to: “The New Moon represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.”
This New Moon will be in Cancer which is ruled by the Moon and is a water sign therefore it is the perfect time to look inward at your own desires and wants AND to most importantly shower yourself with love. Make sure to really take care of yourself and reprieve into yourself all the while setting intentions that reflect that.
There is a ritual that I will be doing which consists of writing a list of what I want, in the present tense, and focusing on already having it in my hands and life; among other things. Through this list I will manifest so much self love and will visualize that I have already accomplished everything. I will keep my heart open during this time and throughout this coming month to any opportunities I come across. This time, in my opinion, is a time to shed all of the old, negativity that still clings to my soul and cleansing it with new, positivity, protection, femininity, focus, roots, nurturing, connections, sanctuary, self love….plus so many other themes. I hope you all have a blessed Friday night.
I am from what they call “generation Y”, where we did not grow up with using our smartphones as a means of all communications, from videoing to constant texting. There was no Facebook or Instagram. We actually had to speak in person or on our landline phone. To me it is truly sad how our society has made human interaction actually very difficult. I completely understand how people have anxiety and it’s easier for them to use their phone at times. However when issues arise in our lives, when we have interpersonal problems, text messaging should never be used as a means of communication nor should social media. Words actually can hurt a person immensely, I’ve seen it happen and I’ve lived through that pain too. Now, do I have an active social media account, yes I do: Instagram which is used mostly for my healthy living journey and accountability, it is never used to resolve serious issues.
So, I will leave you with this article I found which pretty much sums up how I feel! 😀 But warning….there are obscenities and some might be offended 😉 : Stop Texting
Change in my life of any kind, no matter how small, used to be terribly scary for me. I would resist it, fight it as much as possible but inevitably that change happened. However the hardest part of any change was myself, my resistance to it. I have finally learned to embrace change and now know that only when we change can we actually grow as human beings. “The secret to change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates
The last blog I had I dwelled on the past more than anything. It dragged me down and put a heavy weight on my shoulders that I wasn’t even aware of until I got rid of it. Yes our past does have an influence on who we are today but it absolutely does not define us. We have a choice as to who we want to be deep within our souls. And yes, my past will be tied into my blogs here and there, however what really matters is the present and manifesting a bright, happy, fulfilling future.
In life there are just things that are meant to happen. There is a back story to how I got into personal training and the personal trainer I chose, however that is for another time. 😉 This post is for all of you out there, especially my ladies, who think you just “can’t”. Today I really pushed myself. The above pictures are screenshots of a video I did just after my workout. I have NEVER done weights with front and back squats as well as lifting a free weight from below my hips, to my chest, and up over my head. Did I need help?! Yes! Hells yes I did towards the end, but that’s what my trainer is there for! I’m absolutely not perfect, never will be, and never want to be. I guess my message out there to all of you reading this is: never give up on yourself, don’t put yourself down when you need help, and always remember-YOU GOT THIS!
This blog is going to be about many ups, downs, and inbetweens….it’s going to be raw, the real deal, and most importantly from the heart. There’s also going to be many laughs along this journey. In the past 5 years I have learned so much and in the past 3 years I’ve grown up immensely. Since I was a little girl I always wanted to be older, I always thought to myself: “When I turned 30 I’m going to be married, have traveled the world, have had a kid (or two), a career, and be so happy and content with my life.” Welp, I sure was damn wrong! It’s been a roller coaster of awesomeness and chaos-a perfect storm at times. However, I wouldn’t change a thing because it’s made me the woman I am today. My dreams are beginning to take shape before my eyes and I am in no rush. I’m going to sit back and enjoy this wonderful journey. I sure hope you join me on this adventure of love, laughter, tears, fear, heartache, anger, hard work, spirituality, peace, honesty, and positivity. Photo credit: intothelight313
