We have a little over 3 months left before 2018 comes to a close. And as always, time seems to move faster every year, especially when you're living La Dolce Vita. But even here in Italy, life is presenting me opportunities for growth and transformation at every turn! I don't know about you but this past summer felt like a doozy with all those eclipses and retrogrades! Thank goodness we are on the other side of all that and we should be embodying a much more forward moving energy and perhaps even a shift in consciousness towards taking action or being inspired to begin a new part of your life or a new project. It's possible something pretty big has changed for you in the recent past on the external or internal, even if it's in the way you think. Perhaps a new theme is emerging in that precious life of yours and you're feeling a burgeoning inspiration from deep within calling you into action.
As we head into autumn and with the power of the Autumn Equinox tomorrow (September 22), take advantage of this opportune moment to shed light on and embrace that which has shifted inside you. Then you can begin to re-align your intentions and goals accordingly, helping to keep you focused and on purpose for the rest of the year. Making conscious choices that stem from awareness of what is most meaningful to us is essential to activating our creative power. True empowerment happens one aligned choice at a time.
To work with your creative power at this moment, use your journal and take some time to thoughtfully answer these questions. Ideally you'll want to center yourself through meditation or prayer first.
1) Think back to the beginning of the year and what was important to you at that time, do you still feel the same way or has something else emerged for you as growing in importance in your life? Is there a theme in your life that has emerged over the past couple months?
2) What in your life is trying to find completion? Given the cyclical nature of our lives, can you recognize an opportunity to let go of something that is holding you back from moving forward (relationship, job, pattern, fear, old belief, material items, etc)? Are you ready to accept what change it may bring?
3) Given your answers from above, write down 5 new intentions for the remainder of the year. What goals can support your intentions?
Sending Love to your process and to the rest of your year!!
