End of Year Rituals

End of Year Rituals

How are the last few days of 2016 for you? What did you learn about yourself? How did it challenge you? What did you gain? And what did you give? Its time for a little reflection some end of year rituals!

Upon reflection, 2016 has been an amazing year of change. Whether it was something I had never done before or whether it was something that my soul had been pulling me towards for such a long time, 2016 was an incredibly energetic year - so much momentum and so much creativity was birthed this year and for that I am truly grateful.

I have some end of year rituals that you can try. I have also created a few Journal Sheets for you today to do some reflecting and create a ritual to complete the year and move into 2017. You can download the Journal Sheets by signing up for the Free Resource Library - The Intuition Collection. Or you can also simply put pen to paper and write out your thoughts to the Journal Prompts below in your journals too!

How Do You Bookend Your Day?

How Do You Bookend Your Day?

The other day I was having a beautiful soul-chat with one of my dearest friends, Sarah. We talked about all the things that moved our hearts and the practices that we loved that lifted us to greater states of awareness.

Our conversation explored the concept of conscious living - the desire to simplify and declutter aspects of our lives and ourselves to give breathing space for where we wanted our energy to flow. In the midst of all our wide-eyed intentions and dreams, we were limited by time and the ability to somehow do all that we wanted.

Of course, it would be absolutely amazing to have 3 hours dedicated to morning rituals, but in reality, the majority of us don't always have the time to fit it all in before we need to scoot out the door. And what about all those days when we are honestly scrapping by in survival mode and are running on almost empty? How can we begin and end even the busiest of days as mindfully as possible?

Sarah and I talked about how we could strip everything back to its most essential - a concept we referred to as "bookending" our day. In other words, how do we begin the day and how do we complete our day consciously?

Allowing Change & An Update From Me (+Giveaway)

Allowing Change & An Update From Me (+Giveaway)

I have been writing on this for a little over 2.5 years. I started writing it when I joined Rachael McDonald's Bright Eyed Blog Hearted e-course. At the time I was definitely bright eyed, blog hearted. I was taking small steps, gently tracing the edges of my comfort zone. And gradually, I began to explore what lay outside these boundaries. 

Little did I know back then, that the humble beginnings of a little blog centred around mindful mornings, was going to be a catalyst for so many things. In the last 6 months, since moving to Japan, I have felt big energetic shifts. Everything is constantly in flux no matter how big or small. I am in a sense of deep gratitude for simply allowing myself to be in these spaces of constant change, free-form creation and intuition. 

And so, today, I have a few updates that I would love to share. Some of you may have received the initial updates in my latest Intuition Notes newsletter a month ago, but I am finally ready to share it now that the finishing touches have been completed! Yay!!

Japan, A Place To Call Home

Japan, A Place To Call Home

In April this year, I packed my bags and moved to the other side of the world - to Japan, a place that speaks effortlessly to my heart.

For many years, my holidays would always include trips to a quiet shrine tucked away in the forest, letting my worries melt away in an onsen, getting lost in the nature and mountains of Shikoku, or being carried away by the craze of neon Tokyo. This, coupled with years studying the language in Melbourne, it seemed like I had been paving this path to move here for many years.

Looking back, I can now see how all the dots have connected. 

Intuition beckoned me - I knew that upon returning from my final trip to Japan (read about it here) that my life in Melbourne was to come to a beautiful close. I remembered receiving the image of puzzle pieces being tossed up in the air - a big sign that everything was about to change and that a bold new beginning was on the horizon. 

I knew that if I chose to back away from taking action on it, i would be turning my back on my truth. In a way, intuition was calling me out to explore my fear - fear of what this big life change would mean for me. My intuition was gently asking me to play in the uncertainty of it all.
