Being Self-Full Is The Most Difficult Choice

Last week was a week of firsts for many people I’m regularly in contact with, launching themselves way beyond the outer limits of their comfort zones into undiscovered country. I was no different. It got me thinking about when being Self-Full is the most difficult choice.

To others bravery, beforehand, can look like stupidity, absurdity and even recklessness, but on the otherside of the leap, once you launch yourself from the safety of the nest and realise you are flying, that’s when the world looks up and acknowledges how brave you were.

Self-Full Living is about managing your well-being and it could easily be mistaken for taking the gentle option by playing safe. But there is no safety in stagnancy and definitely no self-care in playing small. Sometimes it is the most difficult choices, requiring the most courageous acts, that rescue us from our patterns and set us free from the prisons that have slowly been sapping our vital force.

Self-Full Living is about realising you have a problem that is detrimental to your spiritual, mental, or physical health. It is identifying a habit, behaviour, relationship or environment that is dismantling the life you’ve built around you or crushing you at soul level. But it is more importantly about what you choose to do when you recognise it… do you say “that’s too hard” and do nothing, or do you make the difficult choice and be brave?

Being Self-Full is the most difficult choice because it often requires sacrifice and it often requires you to move away from what feels familiar or what feels comfortable.

Self-Full Living is about embracing self-care, but you may find that long-term well-being requires short-term pain.

My question to you is this: are you willing to launch yourself out of the nest and be the bravest version of you, so that your well-being can recover and your soul can once again shine?

What firsts are you bravely stepping into this week?

Let me know in the comments.

Fuelling Intention – Don’t Waste The Magic

I’m not usually one to be lost for words but there’s a reason I didn’t post a blog yesterday. Have you ever heard the idea that the more you talk about what’s happening the more you give away the power for it to happen? The power fuelling intention – don’t waste the magic… The Faerie Magic!

Today is Lammas, or Lughnasadh if you prefer… it’s summer harvest and therefore a day to reap the fruit. (If you’ve been reading for a while then you’ll understand why I’m hoping for a pear harvest).

More importantly for me it would have been my dad’s birthday today had he made it this far, so I’m very aware that his energy is around today, mainly because my thoughts are with him and because during this time of harvest, when my own faerie magic is finding a form to take, manifesting my own hopes, dreams and wishes, my ancestral line are adding their magic into the mix to provide weight to Destiny’s endeavour.

We were always going in this direction and every one of our ancestors that dared to tread the path before us did so to lead to this point, everything they did, including my pop’s early departure… it was part of my preparation for this dance…and the dance will pave the way for whatever or whoever comes next.

Take today to honour those that came before. I know there are national and international holidays to do that but today being the first harvest, it’s a day where we reap the abundance that they created, that they stepped aside to leave behind for us. It’s a day where gratitude should be our guide and sharing our only goal.

Whatever your intentions turn into, know that they are paving the way for future generations and that one day in the distant future a harvest will be born of your sacrifice too. Don’t waste the magic.

More later… x
