The sound of the ocean is so restorative, and the element of water is certainly a healing gift.
But whatever season you are in right now, or whatever is taking up of your time, you don’t have to wait to renew yourself and create a fresh start.
It’s a choice, right now.
It’s a decision you can make each day.
It’s an action you can take in each moment.
Whether it’s improving your nutrition, committing to more physical activity, resting when your body needs it, or establishing healthy boundaries to name several examples, you uplevel all of these intentions when you add in one very important piece:
: highly valued and important : deserving great respect
As women, we are to live in relationship with the sacred feminine- a relationship with our bodies, cycles, inner wisdom and intuition, purpose, passions, nature, community, intimacy and love.
And yet a relationship with the sacred feminine is not a relationship of light convenience.
It’s deep and profound.
It’s vast and heart centered.
It’s about ease, connection and flow…
It’s about maximizing the creative bursts and resting in between.
Too much expansive energy burns out.
Too much recoiled energy grows stagnant.

There is probably no greater combined physical, emotional and spiritual effort a woman can make than birth another life into this world. It is a rite of passage.

But the key to getting through this labor of love is to take advantage of the restful down times in between each burst and to ride the waves…
I offer you this practice today to connect with what is sacred to you.
As mothers, the more we cultivate this relationship, the better we can teach it to our children.
Your Sacred Practice:
Take a moment to consider areas of your life where you would benefit from infusing more sacredness, more reverence.
Where can you honor yourself and life more?
Is it becoming aware of negative thought patterns?
Is it in what you’ve been feeding your body?
Is it where your vital energy gets leaked?
As you become more aware and focus your attention, you open up your channel for a life of greater ease and flow…
