Complacency and Change


Last year during the solar eclipse in August, I set some intentions around my healing practice and career choices.  Now that the year is almost complete and we have another August eclipse (and new moon!) on Saturday the 11th, I can feel that there's some change in the air for me. 

I've been doing some of the same things for a long time, in terms of my healing practice but also with some of my daily routines and habits.  It's time to mix things up and put some of the creative things out front and center that have been on the back burner for a long time out.  If you've been around with me for awhile, you know that I believe it's important to have regular check-ins and time for contemplation about what's working and what isn't.  As I've started to tune in to see where there's been growth and where I feel stagnant, I realized I have the habit of putting my own projects last, if I can squeeze in the time.  The creativity muse has been giving me great ideas, but I haven't fully honored that muse and taken the next steps.  So it's time to make some changes! 

With change though comes a little bit of fear and doubt.  Complacency can be a really comfortable place!  Why leave what feels familiar?  I know I've allowed myself to stay in a number of different places and spaces out of complacency even though I was well past the "overdue date" and well aware of it!

Thankfully there are a multitude of tools you can use to help you through those growing pains and transitions.  For me, breathwork is one of those tools that helps me the most because it gets me out of my thinking, worrying mind and into the truth of my body and spirit. 


In honor of the coming new moon, I encourage you to take time over the next couple of days and ask yourself some questions:  
What is working for you right now?
How are your boundaries, routines, self-care rituals?
Where do you feel stuck or stagnant or burdened?
Is there an area you are ready to make some changes and how can you support yourself through those? 

And let's acknowledge that we don't have to make a huge overhaul of our lives all at once.  It's just one step at a time, one small aligned action at a time.  But the key is action.  Giving yourself that little push into momentum. What can you do right now today that tells yourself and the universe that you are making waves and space for something different? 

Sending you lots of love and support as we travel through this new moon solar eclipse! Blaze on beauties!
