Journal Prompt – Trying New Things

Hello again, my friends! I’m scheduling a few more journal prompt posts for the next few months, so I hope you find them helpful! Today’s prompt is one I’ve used a lot lately, because I’ve been trying a lot of new things these days. Normally a self-professed “perfectionist”, I started to realize that naming a trait doesn’t make it healthy. So I decided to bring more conscious awareness to my most recent attempts by journaling about them.

Re-framing my thoughts helped me to think about my recent attempts as growth opportunities. I put together lots of notes about things I could do differently the next time to get a better result, and felt good about the things I recognized as essential preparation. This exercise has totally changed the way I approach the projects in my life!

Since I am now consciously aware of the lessons I am learning when things don’t go how I expected, I have far less anxiety about making mistakes. Not to mention, I am improving very quickly! Let me know in the comments if you used these prompts, and what you were able to learn for next time!

Super Full Moon June 24, 2021

Hi friends, Happy Super Full Moon! If you’ve felt a heavy energy lately, whether chaotic or just HEAVY, this is likely the combination of the summer solstice and this super full moon ushering us into the emotional Cancer season. While it might feel insurmountable, it’s definitely time to take stock of our blessings and look for ways that we can shift the things that make us uncomfortable. The full moon is the perfect time to release and let go of the heavy energies we carry with us, so without further ado, let’s get into this!

Intentions are going to be the most important part of this month’s work for me personally, and perhaps for you, too. Where our focus goes, so goes our energy… which means that energy spent on things that don’t further our objectives is effectively wasted. Look for ways that you can shift the responsibility for your time so that you feel more in control during all hours of the day, but especially those that aren’t earmarked for something else. There is nothing worse than reflexively snapping at someone you love because you’re stressed about all the stuff you have on your plate, is there?

“You are being called to find a balance between what you give and what you get.”

I decided to pull the cards a little differently this time… mostly because the first pair jumped out while I was shuffling. In total there were 4 sets of cards, each pointing toward the same general theme… use the past as a tool to change your future. The first group of cards brings up the way we express our satisfaction (or lack thereof) in our efforts. The second group of cards asks us to ponder the way we hold onto control instead of delegating, when trusting another person to help can benefit both of us. (Control freaks of the world, I’m talking to us!) The third set gets a little darker and asks us to look for ways we might be lying to ourselves (or other people), in order to avoid discomfort. The last set kind of ties it all together and asks us to look for ways that bringing our energy into balance can improve our lives.

“Use the past as a tool to change your future.”

Much like last month, balancing our lives and energetic expenditures is a big theme. This month tied the balance to our abundance, which hits pretty close to home for me. I recently started a creative endeavor that has challenged me in every area of my life! Overall I’m really proud of myself, but I’ll admit that it hasn’t been without its ups and downs. Sometimes it feels like, “Why am I even trying this?!” But for every incredulous doubt, there have been moments of clarity that feel like I was born to do this. As far as I can tell, the right paths are SUPPOSED to feel this way. They challenge us and in turn, we challenge the limits we once believed in… and then we grow in ability and in faith.

Over the course of the next few days, take a moment to think about what you are hoping to call into your life. Are you able to receive it just as you are, or do you need to accept yourself before you are comfortable accepting the abundance you want? What wisdom can you gather from the significant events of the last month? Sometimes even just changing the language you use to speak about yourself can create the space you need to let go of the things that hold you back.

I hope you found this helpful in developing the insights you need to move forward in grace! Wishing you all the best during this full moon!
