Question for you- do you have any habits you are trying to create this year? Or maybe some you would rather not have by the end of the year? (Eating an entire jar of almond butter because you forgot to eat lunch or just…because? ….raises hand)
For years and years I would grit my teeth and try and be different- healthier, stronger, more powerful, more feminine, more hygienic, less procrastinatory (woah that’s actually a word?! NICE)– you name it. It would work– for awhile. Some things would stick, some wouldn’t. I tried to systematize my business for everrrrrr with basically no luck.
Like the good straight-A student I was, my first line of defense has always been RESEARCH! Can’t make habits stick? Better google, read books, watch videos, sign up for programs to help- RIGHT?
What that resulted in was I now understand a LOT about the psychology of habits, why we resist new ones, how to create them, etc. And you know what? It still came down to if it didn’t feel fun or I didn’t get an immediate benefit, I just didn’t end up sticking with it. Some may call that lazy, or worthless (I know I’ve called myself that a few times in the past), but I really felt like if it didn’t feel good and was such a chore, why do it?
Obviously things need to get done. Dishes, responding to emails, paying bills, sending invoices- we can’t just choose to stop doing all the stuff that isn’t super fun.
What we CAN do is change the way we experience those things. We can choose the approach we want, and we can create support in our bodies, in our environment, and in our thoughts around what we are doing. That’s why I created this video for you about The Power of Ritual.
Once you’ve watched, I would love to know- what can you ritualize in your life? Where can you create space for sacredness and intentionality?
Decide this and 2015 will be yours. <3
Psst: Creating Rituals is barely scratching the surface of living fully in magic and tapping in to your power.
