It’s a Powerful Time
This is a powerful time of year in the Jewish tradition. It’s a time of introspection, reflection and renewal. On Monday, I will be honoring Yom Kippur by fasting and spending the day alone to reflect and renew. I use this milestone to acknowledge how much I’ve grown, deepen my self-awareness, and strengthen trust in myself and the universe.
This is a time to think about what we want to let go of and what we want to create in our future. It’s a time to release the disempowering thoughts and stories from our past to free up space to live into an inspiring future.
If you know me, worked with me or read my weekly inspirations, you know I always advocate this type of transformational work. Despite the holiday and no matter what religious or spiritual background you connect with (or none at all), transformation is available for you anytime of the year and at any.single.moment.
I know it takes something to release the past. I don’t think we ever can completely be freed from it. But what we can do, is bring awareness to when our past is showing up, release it and create something new.
How do you know when your past is showing up?
Here are some clues: when you are angry at someone, when you are jealous, when you are complaining, when you procrastinate, when you are stopped from reaching your goals.
Because underneath that, is all the “I’m not enough” stories we have about ourselves. It’s all the ways we make ourselves wrong. It’s all the same, hurt and pain. Even if we had beautiful and happy childhoods, we still made up some “not enough” story about ourselves.
What is yours? Bring awareness to it. Notice it. Release attachment to it.
Allow it to float into the wind, river, ocean and sky. Allow yourself to connect to your light, your power, the most loving part of yourself. Allow yourself to create your life, connect to the possibility of your vision, and engage with the energy of your life.
As you read this at this powerful time, I am fasting, I am seeking, I am opening and am sending you so much love and light✨♥️✨
