Step One: Create your space
Whether you simply grab your headphones or your favorite pillow, you are already taking a step to prepare your space. So while you gather your things, indulge a little extra and grab a candle, blanket, or special drink to keep you company.
In my early practice, I would find myself rushing into spiritual practices, feeling anxious, and fighting to relax my nervous system. But when I took the time to settle myself first and create space to feel pampered, safe, and relaxed, I was able to offer myself a deeper experience.
I'd like to challenge you to draw out this step for as long as you can. Put on some calming music and choose something to engage each of your senses. Essential oils, incense, crystals, and snacks make excellent additions. Lastly, get your favorite journal and writing tool. Truly take your take before moving on to the next step.
Step Two: Journal
Once you feel like you've relaxed into your space, grab your journal and get ready to write. I recommend the philosophy of stream of consciousness writing: don't edit, second guess, or judge - just write. Let out everything that comes to mind and write until each answer feels complete.
I want you to think back to the moment you realized a boundary had potentially been crossed. How did you feel in your body? What was going through your mind?
If you could boil down all the emotions you felt in this moment to one, what would it be?
Now send loving energy back to yourself by imagining you or a trusted friend watching over this memory with loving support.
What could this emotion be trying to communicate?
How can you honor the way you feel right now? Even if it doesn't make logical sense, write everything that comes to mind.
If your most trusted friend was here, what would they tell you?
What boundary would feel the best for what you feel and need today?
Bonus: Pull some cards ✨
You can use divination or many other tools for extra support. The following questions pair well with tarot & oracle cards, but you may also feel called to ask your own specific questions or use other forms of divination. Take the path that feels best to you.
Take a moment to thank yourself for truly nurturing your own emotions and growth. You chose to honor yourself, invest time in yourself, and prioritize your wellbeing. That's not your average put-put strategy. That takes bravery and heart and that's not something to brush over. Thank you for being here. Thank you for being comitted to yourself.
Go little rockstar! Don't stop here, let these take you deeper 🌙
