Harnessing the Power of the Elements to Rejuvenate Our Soulful Projects

Summer is a wonderful time to return to our goals with a fresh outlook and breathe a zest of inspiration into our projects. As the energetic rays of the sun stay with us longer it helps to fire up our brains and stay on track with the continued commitment to achieving our heart’s desire. We can tap into this by connecting to the core elements of Mother Earth.

Earth

Take a moment to connect up with your goals by taking your shoes off in the backyard and reconnecting to the earth. It feels wonderful to dig your toes into the ground, close your eyes, finding space in mountain pose, and reconnecting with your needs and desires. Take a few moments just to picture the freedom of achieving your goals as your toes welcome the budding rise of fresh greenery. Awakening to the rejuvenation of fresh ideas!

Air

If you feel there is a staleness in your projects or workout routines the first step is to remove the staleness from your home. The easiest way to do this is to open your windows and let the summer air blow through cleansing your space and removing the stagnancy in the air that may be holding you back or feeling more sluggish than usual. It is when we can purge the stagnant in our homes it gives us the freedom and energy to open our spaces for more creativity.

Fire

We all have a fire that burns brightly within us that rises to the challenge of attaining our core desires.  We can tap further into our passions by taking a moment to gaze into the evening fire or candlelight regaining clarity and focus before returning back to work on our soulful projects. The long fire gaze will calm your mind and fire you up to complete that one creative project that speaks to you.

Water

Take a pause in your busy day. Reflect. Are you swimming against the current? How can you change the direction and find more fluidity throughout your day?  It must be noted all challenges and resistances are normal but how can work with those challenges to regain a momentum that brings us the space to move and breathe with ease floating with tide instead of against it.

As we begin to connect more with the four elements we begin to create the much-needed space to venture on our creative path. The freedom of summer offers a fresh start to new and old projects.  The beauty of the summer months is it renews and invigorates us to explore with all of our senses creating a wider expansion of endless possibilities.

Make Your Well Being a Priority for 2017

Almost every year people sit down with their list of New Years Resolutions with high optimism for change and a brighter future. A typical list usually focuses on losing weight, making more money, fostering new relationships, and living the dream of travelling the world.

However, the problem with these lists is they are already set-up for failure because there is no list set-up to focus on how to achieve these specific goals. We creates lists that highlight our achievements but we fail to make the important lists that step us in the right direction to achieving our goals whether it be losing ten pounds or creating a higher stream of wealth.

The number one thing that should be on your list  for 2017 is making your well-being your number one priority. It is by creating a healthy routine for yourself that sets you up to achieve your goals and dreams.  Imagine a  healthier version of  yourself  when you  have more energy, more time, and unwavering tenacity to reach further for your goals. You begin to set yourself up for new possibilities and achievements.

Here are three simple ways to make your well-being the number one priority for 2017.

Take Pause with the 4-7-8 Breath

The 4-7-8 breath is one of my favorite breathing techniques when feeling stressed, frustrated, or over whelmed. I know during  the holiday season we can begin to feel it even more when our to-do lists are longer and we not getting the restorative downtime we need to replenish our spirit.

I am sharing this simple technique with you so you can find that pause and regain that clarity during the busy holiday season.

 

Wishing you a beautiful holiday season!

Call for Submissions

The United States Presidential Election last week moved many of us through a tsunami of emotions – shock, anger, grief, and fear.  As we begin to accept that Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States and that the face of politics will dramatically shift in the next four years. We have to come to terms that their will be factors that come into play that will be out of our control.

What we can control is our voice. We can use it to inspire, engage, and try to make the world better. As much hatred and bigotry in this world there is also kindness, compassion, and love. Good people surround us and they inspire us to be better.

I look at the people that surround me on a daily basis and in my social media feed all I see are kind, caring, smart, talented, and creative individuals. Maybe it’s time for us to collectively raise the voice that reminds us that good still exists in this world.

I want you to share your brilliance, your light, and a story about someone who  created a positive impact in your life or community. As much as the world feels like it is spinning in turmoil we can control what goes on in our lives by inspiring others with our words.

I am in the early stages of putting together an e-book which will be a compilation of essays  that inspires, uplifts, and shows that positive change can happen. I am looking for 750-1500 word well-written essays about people in your life that have impacted and uplifted you, your family, or your community. Submissions will be accepted until December 14th, 2016 and emailed to darcie_cameron@yahoo.ca.

All of the proceeds from this book will be Donated to War Child Canada.

So much is happening that is out of our control but we can still have a small positive impact by focusing on the good in others. It is by focusing on this good that we can restore our spirits, find our voice, and maybe just maybe help a cause that means something to all of us.
