A new year, a new intention

Happy 2021! I love the feeling of beginning again. A freshness, a clean slate. A new year. Another chance. Have you set your intention for the year yet? If not, do it! Take a moment to sit in silence right now and allow a word or phrase to arise and go with that. Trust it. Last year my intention was to "create, like an artist" and as I look back on it, that's exactly what I did all year long. I implemented so many of my little soul projects and had so much fun doing it and plan on continuing to do it.

This year my intention is to shine. I mean, my business mantra is to tell you all to keep shining so I better be shining too, right? This means I need to focus more on nourishing myself while I also continue to follow what lights me up. Originally two and a half years ago when I created Inner Light Botanicals, I wanted to create products and just hide behind them, it felt comfortable there. You'll notice even from my
Instagram feed you were able to see my face last year a good bit more than other years and I learned that vulnerability can put a lot of extra weight on my shoulders and tension in my body and sometimes my practices fall off as I deal with those feelings. My goal this year is to actually get comfortable with it. And break out of some of those things that hold me back. I just started a 300-hour Kundalini yoga teacher training to help me with that. 

 

"Aligning your life is a never-ending process. It is a day-by-day, moment-to-moment practice. Not a one-off overhaul. Living a life of alignment is a daily practice. Checking in, staying on course, redirecting as you travel. Noticing what feels good, free, spacious, and what feels restrictive, stagnant, stuck. What is falling away and what is ready to rise." - Rebecca Campbell
