Knowing Your Five


So…sometimes our energy is “in the shitter.” We are low vibe, feeling sup sluggish, bleh, and blah.  You know when these moments are.  Everything feels a bit off- from your internal energy to your responses.  You don’t feel like yourself.

When I end up feeling this way, I take a look at “My Five” and see if I’ve been practicing them. These are the 5 things that bring me back to me.  My true light within.  “My Five” can change in different seasons and shift around, but it’s basically asking yourself, “What do I need right now in this moment?” It really helps to have this list already on-hand,  knowing what really brings you back to yourself.  It’s an element of self care and recharge.  Adding in the joy, since humans need to recharge just as much, if not more than our phones.  When we take the time to rest, we can show up from a more aligned place.

This is My Five:

  1. Snuggling watching TV/Movie
  2. Play of some kind (Video games, pulling cards)
  3. Reiki Healing
  4. Meditation
  5. Music, Sound Healing

Here are some more Examples to help you find “Your Five”: 

  • Breathwork/Meditation/Holistic Healing
    • Breath moments – taking just 30 seconds to do 5 seconds in 5 seconds out – helps in traffic especially [great with essential oils]
    • Reiki, Sound Healing, guided meditation, mindful breath techniques
  • Grounding/Movement – walking, getting into the physical, nature connection
    • Knowing if your happy place is the beach, forest, your bed, a bath [with essential oils/cbd/epsom salt] going for a walk
    • Dancing
    • Exercise
  • Spending time alone/spending time with other people [friends, family] 
    • Going out for a nice Dinner
  • Play, Hobbies 
    • Reading, Journaling 
  • Beauty: Massage, Manicure
  • Usually consists of less Social Media and more time being present. Adding in more rest time or Simply. Doing. Nothing.

Manifesting Your Dreams

We don’t get a “runner’s high” from just thinking about running.
So how would we manifest our dreams just by thinking about them and setting intentions?
We achieve our dreams by taking the inspired actions.
We achieve this by celebrating each of these action steps along the way.  And by celebrating the process, similar to celebrating each run and feeling that amazing joy in each step of the journey.

One of My Favorite Prayers

Prayers and Intentions

Here is a prayer that I enjoy listening to in my mornings frequently.  It’s such a beautiful intention to start my day. It’s starting the day knowing that God, the Universe, the Holy Spirit is with me in this day.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.   If you’d like to listen to it instead of read it, here is the link to the one that I listen to here. I believe God is always with us, and it’s so nice to start off the day feeling that in every way.
