Reclaiming Relaxation and Ease

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 15-09-2020

Thich Nhat Hanh thinks, “We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal.”

But how, in the middle of a world focused on so many unsettling events and situations, do you heed this call to relax? Isn’t that selfish given all that is afoot? Won’t havoc reign for sure if you stop now?

Our culture compels us to keep moving, keep pushing, keep “progressing.” But our bodies and our hearts hear a different song…

 

 It’s okay to stop…

 

And if you need some assistance, call on the Mocha Power of Relaxation, the part of your nature that:

  • knows what is most essential
  • gently lets the distractions of complexity recede into the distance, if only for a while
  • allows more room for spaciousness and ease to calm your jangled nerves and sooth your thirsty soul
  • knows there is no true “progress” or “growth” or wise steps made without it

It’s okay to rest.

 

This week, keep these affirmations in mind as you move through your day. Let them seep into your consciousness. Let them help you reclaim a sense of ease and peace inside. Let them permeate into the world:

I unwind easily.

I relax and take it easy.

I keep life simple.

I create elegant simplicity.

 

Stop, breathe and relax…

 
 

Finding Balance in Challenging Times

Think about this for a minute:

How does contemplating this image and these words change how you see the world…and how you see yourself?

You might have noticed that there are a lot of very physical, earthly, human issues happening right now. Important. Urgent. Heartbreaking. Scary.

With all this chaos, confusion, and stress, it can be so easy to think that you must DO something. There are many physical, everyday, worldly things you are probably doing to mitigate circumstances, help others, and create safety.

You might also be experiencing a lot of emotional reactivity to what’s going on in the world. And mentally, perhaps you are very busy, too, wondering what’s coming next.

So, with all of that…

How’s your spiritual life going?

It’s so easy to get busy with the worldly stuff! Physically, emotionally, mentally – there is just so much to focus on!

Ok, this might be a good time for a deep breath.

How about a little help from the Power of Balance? 

This White Gold energy helps you take the time to nourish your inner life as the true underpinning of all that you are and do. It builds your faith, and refreshes your spirit.

With the Power of Balance strong and healthy:

  • You will more easily navigate all the changes going on in the world.
  • You will feel guided to put your focus on what is (truly) most important.
  • It will be easier to keep your priorities straight.
  • You’ll find that your actions are more infused with compassion and appreciation for the sacred.

Let this week be one of bringing

more balance into this dance between

your spiritual life and your daily life.

  • Ask yourself: how does Spirit move in you? speak to you? How do you connect with and hear Spirit most clearly?
  • Commit to taking time each day this week to connect with Spirit in this way. Whether through prayer, meditation, art, dance or any of the myriad of ways that people connect with their spiritual core, choose the path that speaks to you the most, and devote time each day to do that. Make it your #1 priority just for this week.
  • Watch how these regular daily “retreats” impact the other areas of your life. Notice any changes in your emotional state, your overall sense of well being, your ability to meet and handle your responsibilities, and your capacity for sensitivity, joy and appreciation for life. Earmark these moments in your mind. They are indeed sacred.

“We can want peace, but unless we are spiritually at peace ourselves, we don’t mean it. It is our thoughts which keep that part of the universe where each of us stand, out of or in balance.”

~ Little Crow

Finding Your Rhythm in Challenging Times

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 04-08-2020

We’ve all had to learn a lot of new “dance moves” these past few months ~ new steps in how we work, how we socialize and how we take care of ourselves. 

Do you feel a bit dizzy, a little awkward, or a lot overwhelmed by it all? These are very normal outcomes of trying to suddenly follow a different rhythm than what you’ve been used to for so long.

It’s time to follow the lead of the

 

Turquoise Power of Coordination

 

because…

You see, it takes a lot of creativity and finesse to navigate so many new ways of doing things that used to be second nature. Heck, simple grocery shopping is now like an advanced tango…

“Only one direction down this aisle,” “No -don’t go there!” “Turn that way,” “Ok, lean in to get the celery…NOW!” “And remember to stay 6 feet apart!”

Not to mention you’re being asked to do it all while in costume (at least for your face).

It’s no wonder so many of us are feeling clumsy and awkward.

So call in some Turquoise energy. It’s not an answer to the big crises we’re facing, but it will help you flow with what’s happening more gracefully, keep track of the steps, and move with rhythm. With the Power of Coordination strong and healthy, you’ll find your own unique groove no matter what music is playing.

This week, ask yourself:

  • How might seeing my life as more of a dance than a struggle help me?
  • What would I need to do or not do to flow more easily with how things are? Which steps are best to take and which not?
  • Where am I spinning, and what balls do I want to put down, so that I can better juggle the others?
  • What can I do to coordinate my brain, hands and feet in working together on my own behalf?

Launch into Action

Is this you these days? A bit flattened by life, with not much juice to launch back into projects and goals you’d most like to sink your teeth into?

Don’t despair!

 

The Power of Energizing is here!

 

This power is what fires up your internal engines and gets you back on track. When this energy is flowing, it says:

 

I have lots of energy!

 

I’m focused and initiate movement!

 

I handle intensity easily!

 

I energize others to launch into action!

 

 

 

This week, ponder what most launches you into action…the things that you find are worth getting fired up for. Are they getting overlooked? Are they things you can make more room for in your life?

If you’re passionate about it, chances are they are the key to your energy level. Make a commitment to doing one thing that you really love and that stimulates the energy you crave.

 

 

Laugh Out Loud, It’s Good for You!

Now is such a great time to connect deeply with the Indigo Gold Power of Trust. With likely many new obstacles to what used to be your “normal” life, do you feel like you’re continually swimming upstream? Trying to make things happen that won’t, struggling to navigate tough situtations without much success? Guess what! You can:

Stop

Just stop. Press “pause” on the latest thought, fear, or activity that is leaving you feeling out of synch, befuddled or irritated. The Power of Trust says you don’t have to push against any more rivers.

Ask

Then ask what is missing. What is interrupting your flow? What is needed of you (small or large) to more easily negotiate your circumstances? Listen for those inner nudges…sometimes hard to hear, but full of bright unexpected ideas about ways to get more in the flow.

Align

Align with your inner guidance and trust it, letting go of any resistance, pushing against, or the trying to figure it out. Go with those wordless hunches and see where they carry you!

Stop…Ask…Align…and Trust.

The Bliss of Storage Boxes

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 28-01-2020

It’s no coincidence that the box stores bring out huge pallets of organizing boxes and storage totes to put on display as soon as the holidays are over. They know you might be primed to spend your winter indoor hours finding places for all of your “stuff.” And now that it’s tax season, all the more reason to put your file boxes to work and get your affairs in order so you know where to find what.

Are you in the mood, but don’t know where to start? Then call on the Orange Power of Organizing to help you dispense of your clutter. Here’s an exercise to get you going:

1)   Choose an organizing or tidying project you’d like to tackle – one that feels do-able and will take you less than 30 minutes. Put it on your calendar.

2)   When the time comes to do your project, get yourself into vibrational alignment with the Power of Organization first.

Place your right hand (with thumb and first two fingers together) on the Orange spot, right at the hairline on the center front of your head. First say, and then sing the affirmations below 7 times:

3)   Do an exhale blowing breath a few times to clear the stuck energy you just stirred up. Then, if you have it, take 7 – 21 drops of the Organize Vibrancy Essence.

4)   And, if you want to dive a bit deeper, watch Jamie’s video below to help you make great strides forward in creating Orange order!

5)   Now, with your head in the game, and your Power of Organization accessed, tackle your project!

6)   Stand back and enjoy the results! Congratulations!

Happy Organizing!

May the Truth Be Told

Posted by Sallie Justice | Posted in Newsletter | Posted on 30-07-2019

is the best policy…still.

 

Why? Because it is the foundation of good relationships, a functional work life, and a clear conscience. If you build a house on a weak foundation, it will fall before it’s time. The same applies to your life.

If you hedge a little on truth here and deceive people there, eventually trust breaks down, life circumstances destabilize, and true meaning slowly seeps out of your system. It’s hard to count on anything, once the facts start twisting, and fairness and sincerity are no longer deemed important.

This week we want to shine light on the Power of Honesty. Red. Strong and honest Red. It takes strength to “call a spade a spade.” It takes strength to not be swayed or detracted from the obvious by self-serving agendas. It takes a great deal of strength to hold the line on what is really so and what isn’t.

Do you need to buff up your Red muscles a little more? Here’s a short process you can easily fit into your day to help you do that:

1) Notice every time you’re dishonest, slant the truth, or flat out lie.

2) Notice how you feel inside. Let your body tell you, honestly, how it feels before, during and after each incident. Really listen and take it in.

3) Watch for any changes in your future interactions with regard to truth telling.

 

That’s it.

 

This simple exercise alone,

 

if done honestly,

 

can have profound effects.

 

And if you want to take it up a notch, add in these two extra steps between Step 2 and 3 above:

2a) Ask yourself why you needed to not tell the truth for each one.

  • To stay safe by hiding what really matters to you?
  • To get what you feel would otherwise be denied you?
  • Something else?

2b) Are there other ways you can stay safe, be yourself or otherwise fulfill the need that prompted you to be dishonest a little or a lot?
