Last week I started a series of posts that walk you through the stages of Self-Care, and we looked at Emotional Self-Care for when you’re going through change.
I shared how this related to Waning energy of The Moon, and The Transformation stage of Your SHEro’s Journey.
Today we look at how the energy of the New Moon moon relates to the energy of Physical Self-Care and the energy of The Return on Your SHEro’s Journey.
During The Return stage of the Journey, is where you will need to be at your best physically, emotionally and spiritually.
This is your defining moment of your journey. Despite any final obstacles, you’re determined to complete the journey and return home.
Yes, you could wait to be rescued. But some part of you knows that NOW is the time to invoke your inner SHEro and save yourself. It’s time to feel empowered like never before.
Physical Self-Care is more than just bubble baths and spa days.
Physical Self-Care is to bring you back to centre, to connect you to your grounded, physical presence.
To connect you with the sacred container that is your body, so that you learn to recognise and trust the signals she sends you.
Physical Self-Care is essential so that you can re-establish your boundaries – physical and energetic.
When your boundaries are strong(er) it’s easier for you to recognise where you end and other people begin, so that you don’t pick up their emotional and psychic ‘smog’, which leaves you vulnerable to betraying your own needs, and succumbing to the judgements and expectations of others.
Your body is incredible!
No matter what we do to them they keep showing up and doing the best they can.
Your body allows you to experience the world, to give and receive love, it has the ability to fill you with pleasure and delight through your senses.
It’s in our bodies that we hold the wisdom of the mysteries; our intuition, our inner-knowing, our meaning and purpose.
This week is dedicated to this sacred container as we focus on reconnecting to your incredible body and allowing yourself to celebrate, nourish and replenish her.
To help you do this, I’ve created another Self-Care Bingo card for you to have fun playing.
