Uninspired

As you may have noticed, there hasn’t been much happening on the blog this month.

It’s been an intense month. The energy has been wild. The astrology has been wild. My schedule has been wild.

You combine it all together and what you get is one very uninspired me.

So, what do I do when I am feeling uninspired?

I hibernate.

I do only what needs to be done, and no extras. And, in my business the things that need to be done are exceptional client care. Anything aside from that is an “extra.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love writing these blogs, I love using my voice, I love connecting and sharing with you. But, it’s one of the things that I can do only when I have my cup full to over-floweth. When my cup is not full to over-floweth (and by that I mean when I am feeling good, resourced, and with enough energy to share), it is time to cancel everything and take care of my body’s needs.

For a long time I believed that turning inward and listening to my body was not allowed. I believed that it was a “luxury” that I could not afford.

Thank goodness I woke up from that illusion, because the reality is, not turning inward is something that I cannot afford.

We have to remember that we are human BEINGS, not human doings. So often we get caught up in believing that we must Do-Do-Do, and when we are not DOING, we are not enough—not trying hard enough, not producing enough, not connected enough, enough, enough, enough. (You get the idea.)

When I remember that I am a human being and not a human doing, I give myself permission to cancel anything that is not directly client related so that I can make sure that I have my reserve full for my clients. My clients are my number one priority in my business. For them I have much gratitude and without them I would not be where I am today. Thankfully today I know that is a reciprocal relationship.

When I keep my reserves for my clients I can be present with them, I can hold the space for them in the way that they need held, I can be my kick ass healer self.

When I deplete my reserves, I have nothing to give. I have nothing for myself and I have nothing for my clients. I cannot hold the space for them, I cannot be present for them, and I cannot be my kick ass healer self. And well, that just isn’t my style.

So, there is a part of me that misses being connected with my community (all of you, of course!) but on the other hand, I also know that if I can be a good example of practicing what I encourage each of you to do, I can then demonstrate that it is possible to do.

I was just listening to the energy and astrology forecasts for April and it looks like it’s going to be another wild ride. I hope to be able to connect with you more regularly (I still so want to shoot the 2nd part of the Belly Breathing How To video), but if I am not able to, please know that I am simply hibernating to refill my reserves.

With that said, I am going to invite you to reflect on where you are operating from an empty cup and trying to do things when you are feeling uninspired? Where are you running on empty and need to take some time to hibernate? What on your To Do list can wait...?

Sending you all so much peace, light and love!
