“The woman I’m becoming gives me chills. I have to move differently. I have work to do.” // I saw this from @spiritdaughter while aimlessly scrolling and journeying through the depths of IG today #guilty. It stopped me in my tracks. It gave me the feels (strawberry full moon coming on STRONG) and then I sat my butt down, got quiet, and did a full moon ritual and recorded a new meditation. I wrote down all the heart centered work I hope to do in this lifetime. . . . @ninaendrstyoga asked me to do this earlier today. She said let everything I write down bask in the light of the moon tonight. Literally stick the paper outside. She told me to write down my wildest dreams and visions, even those that feel out of reach. . . When I looked at the paper and what I had written, I saw purpose more than “goals”. I guess I’m starting to trust what I’m here to do. How I’m made to move. . . Now, I’m passing the ritual on. I encourage you to grab a paper and a pen, free write, free FEEL, and let this be your soulwork. ✨
