As we enter autumn, the day closes earlier, and the cold weather seeps into our pores. Remember to move with the flow of life and take some time to reconnect with yourself. This is a time to elevate your self-care routine and indulge in the fall aesthetic as well as balancing productivity. Immerse yourself in creative projects and open your perspective to abundance. If you can see a better life for yourself, know that you have what it takes to create it. Take manageable steps and stay aligned with your discernment. On a metaphysical note, the veil is now thinning, therefore protect your energy and mental health. Do the work required to manifest and stay aligned with the best version of yourself. Whether it’s meditation, yoga, deep breathing or journaling, make time for your practice. Remember, the fiercest character most times evolves from chaos and uncertainty. I wish everyone the very best in doing what is best for you.
Let’s go back to our childhood and remember the ‘Dear Diary’ moments. As much as some of you may cringe at such memories, the art of journaling may have helped us to connect with ourselves. In the privacy of blank pages, journaling allows us to open the heart’s vault of our deepest desires or help us to release emotional trauma without judgement. Today, journaling can be just as soothing and cathartic.
In today’s hustle and bustle of our daily responsibilities, it may become easier to hoard an abundance of stress that could hinder your mental health. You can pen your positive daily habits and break down your responsibilities in a fun to-do list to lighten the load off your plate.
Manifest your desires with journaling
You can use journals to understand what you desire and work with this tool to manifest your goals into your reality. There are plenty of strategies for this, such as practising the Law of Attraction. In addition, a Journal can be utilised for your vision board, mood board, affirmations, expressing gratitude and intention setting, etc.
Sketch your way to good moods
A journal doesn’t always have to be for expressing yourself in the form of written words. For example, you can use a journal to sketch your thoughts or your environment.
Journaling is also a way to enter a meditative state which can aid a more peaceful approach to life. At the least, it can help you process your thoughts, which could turn into a book or an art portfolio. I began journaling when I started my spiritual awakening. It started with a few lines a day which eventually turned into a few poems a week. It was then that I realised that I could become a published author. The spiritual journey was arduous, but I found solace in creative writing. There is no right or wrong way to utilising a journal for your personal growth. The journey is yours to be experienced.
Just a reminder to reinforce the knowledge that you are strong. Much stronger than you think you are and much braver than you thought you were. Life is full of twists and turns. Even when you feel alone, believe in yourself. Yes, friends and family can support and nurture you; however, you are the key to making your success happen. Don’t put blind faith in people when you don’t believe in yourself first. Use your discernment and trust in divine timing. The weather has been horrendous, reflective of some of our internal struggles, but the more we choose to stay in alignment with our highest and divine self, the more we can push past obstacles and make our mark on this world. People will come and go but keep learning the lessons and remain aware to manifest your dreams better. Life is not over until we choose to give up.
Yes, I am a Virgo lady turning 29 this month, and I am not impressed in the slightest. My peers are having fun going here, there and everywhere. Dinners, a steady 9 to 5 and what seems to be a solid social circle. I am here and not going everywhere, fighting sleep at midnight, mustering inspiration and motivation to finish my manuscripts, blog posts and creating avenues for entrepreneurial income. Contrary to popular beliefs, my birthdays are usually the last priority on my mind since I entered adulthood. I used to judge myself for being indifferent towards my ‘big day,’ but the more I elevate my mindset and expand my consciousness, the more I realise that it is indeed just a day. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones and creating memories; however, it’s not the end all be all. Besides, I don’t need to celebrate that I am literally one year older and wiser. I mean, wiser, really? Perhaps. I have indeed learned a lot about myself, and I am proud of my growth and ability to adhere to healthy boundaries. I am proud that I have managed to weed out the rotten branches and habits that no longer serve my highest purpose, and as much as I may want to shrug off responsibilities to navigate slightly off course, I know that the lesson will be tougher to learn when I do.
Ignorance is no longer bliss during self-expansion, and I am okay with putting in the work now to enjoy the fruits of my labour in the future. Some will label me a hermit, and that is true. Virgos are the ultimate hermits because we just cannot be bothered with drama and disappointments. Surely one should know that only a Virgo can meet and exceed a Virgo’s expectations. (Yes, I am trying to be funny with a pinch of truth.) On a serious note, if you find yourself going through similar emotions and experiencing a bit of turbulence, note that you are not alone, and you have every right to want to preserve your energy. Take some time and go inside yourself to understand yourself. We are human, and it’s okay to break down, mould and rebuild. At the time of my birthday I will be taking some time to reflect and make plans for my solar year’s manifestation. To me, this is just as important as eating cake and being merry. It’s my personal year and I absolutely want to meet my highest achievements. On a lighter note, I send ever-ending gratitude to all who continue to support me and my work.
Today’s post is a quick reminder for you to remember to tune out outside noise and remain focused on your endeavours. Whether it’s self-development or establishing your businesses, you mustn’t let outside influences knock you off your game. The world will not stop moving, and life gets tough however, understand that you have everything you need from within to succeed. So listen to your inner self and pay attention to your needs.
