In my part of the world, snow is gently falling. The ground is covered in a light dusting of powdered sugar snow. Even as I'm enjoying this rare sight, I'm planning for spring and what herbs I'll be growing to create my own blend of tisanes. One of my goals this year is to give you more tips on incorporating tea into you spiritual and self care practice with videos that give you the feeling of sitting with me, enjoying a cup of tea and chatting. And so I present Tea Date Tuesday.
There comes a time when you must decided to stop looking at what others are doing and listen to your own inner guidance on what needs to be created next. Inspiration from others is important but greater still is the inspiration that comes from you getting down to the business of doing the work to make your goals and dreams happen. That in itself will sustain you longer than looking outside of yourself ever will.
I wrote these words during my morning journaling time as I pondered on where to find inspiration for the next project I'm working on (coming in February) and I thought perhaps you needed to hear this too. For more nuggets of insight and encouragement sign up for my newsletter.
And so that's Christmas and New Years celebrations gone for another year. It was humble and quiet here with loads of pajama days, digital downtime (enforced by an internet outage that required a tech support appointment), hot tea and time for reflection while gazing into the fire and listening for messages as the wood crackled and transformed to ash some of which will be used in our garden come spring.
And just like fire, I'm breaking down what I've learned from 2013 and using it to grow my life garden over the next year. One of the practices I'll be continuing is choosing a word of the year and added an extra layer of support by working with a Goddess for this year...one different than whom I'm aligned with which I'll be sharing more about in the days to come. For now I'm giving myself permission to feel into the spaciousness of this new year and I invite you to do the same. Ease into those new goals and dreams in a way that supports you rather than leading to the dreaded February burnout. Connect with the power of Earth and align with it's ability to create grounded step by step plans. And most importantly of all, trust your inner guidance on what changes are right for you each step of the way. Here's to you. May we all shine brightly in this new year and beyond.
If you would like additional support on your journey through the beginning of 2014 the Amazing Life and Biz Pajama Jam was created with you in mind. The live event has already happened but you can still tune into the energy and watch the replay. It will be available through Feb. 2nd.
