My challenge this week is to better discern when I’m not moving from my essential self. Any emotion outside of joy or love is an indicator that I am not rooted into my essential self. So, when I do have feelings like anger, frustration, or fatigue, my challenge is to receive their wisdom and use said wisdom to return to my essential self. Or so the trees say 🙂 It feels important to grant myself grace and patience through out this process. However I am reminded that the more I practice, the easier it will be.
In order to support myself, I’ve been asked to drink more water. Water will show me discernment by modeling what it’s like to never lose my essential self, no matter what gets thrown into or at me. By remaining in my essential self, I’ll never be confused about who I am.
When I initially channeled this post it didn’t seem possible. This week it actually feels like a fun challenge. Now that I feel more strongly rooted into the core of myself; I look forward to better learning from my feelings and emotions.
Let’s see what comes up <3
Why again? Because last week kicked my ass. Honestly, the past few weeks have kicked my ass.
I would love to say my essence bubbled up easily and I was able to focus on it every morning until it oozed out my pores. What actually happed is that the trees gave me some qualities I had fun playing with in the shower. The rest of the day usually went to shit from there.
This week I’m going to try again. It feels good to know who I am at the core of my being. I need to focus on it more by making decisions that better align with and support it. I am learning that intention and energy is beautiful, but action is necessary. Feelings are nice, but I’d like concrete experiences to go along with all my feelings.
I’m not quite out the woods with my drama, but I am exploring concrete actions that align with my essential self (core frequency). Things are starting to ease up and feel better. Let’s see what unfolds from here.
So, here I am in the lovely St. Maur des fosses reconnecting with Nature.
Challenge 1: Eat better.
Since moving, my diet has been crap. I mean, my American diet was crap. Sadly, I’ve not shown too much improvement since arriving here 🙂
Here are my dietary goals for the week:
- Cut out the whiskey. I love whiskey. It makes me feel good, but if I’m hitting it every night I need to honor whatever I’m stifling rather than continuing to drink every night. It’s not good for me. It’s tasty though 😉
- Cut out the cheese. It feels so cruel to be in France and not indulge in cheese, but it’s messing me up.
For bonus points, I’ll cut my bread in take back to 1 serving a day.
Why am I messing with my diet?
I’m eating better because too much cheese fucks me up; all the way up. Not to mention, my intuition is much sharper when my diet is mainly fruits, veggies, rice and eggs. If I can’t hear Nature, I cannot build a harmonious connection with Her.
We’ll see how this comes together and what the trees have to say next week <3
