Welcome to the second half of the year!
Let's start the next half with a clean slate, okay? Just doing that will empower the next six months in a way that nothing else will. So grab your actual journal or your inner journal and cup of tea and let's reflect a bit...
The Inner Journal Review
What came to mind for you?
I will be letting go of several things, myself....
(1) I hoped to lose 5 pounds each month and call it done by summer. Instead, I haven't lost any!
(2) After a difficult hysterectomy last year, I am in menopause & I think I thought I would magically figure the whole thing out and sail through it all this year. LOL! Instead, I am still grappling with the changes and experimenting to see what works better and what not so well.
(3) And I have a master plan of writing a series of books that will all be on Kindle attracting the attention of my peeps and spreading my message. Though I have written 2-almost-3, only one is on Amazon, and it is under a sneaky pen name.
(4) And let's not even mention the income goal!
So if your year, so far, has not quite materialized in the way you imagined, I totally understand. Let's carry on, shall we?
The stories you told yourself as the year began that didn't come true, the plans you made, that you hoped would already have happened, all the disappointments, the "lessens" that felt like failure or bad fortune. All of it.
See it, feel it, hold it close. If it broke your heart a little, feel the break. Then, feel the love and comfort of the mother goddess & the moon goddess surrounding you. Really let your heart hear the message that it's going to be okay.
Then, offer yourself up to the moon for healing and let it all go, into the fire...
Not too Late to Dream
It can be hard to try again (believe me, I know). But the truth is that 6 more months means you can still dream & create. So have a cup of tea with your journal nearby, and while you sip with delight, meditate on all the possibilities you might want to create, manifest or experience in the second half of the year.
What does your heart feel pulled toward? Right now. Is there a zing of excitement? Hold out for that and then, choose 2 or 3 of the possibilities that charm, delight or excite you to set as intentions. Write them down and place them on the windowsill so the full moon can bless the heck out of them.
May all your solstice wishes come true!
