Raise The Vibration Goddess Prayer:

Body Goodness: This week I read Moon Time: Harness the ever-changing energy of your menstrual cycle. As I’ve said in other posts, I am really diggin’ this idea of cyclical living. I realized I bought a few books years ago but never read them. Now, I feeling called to explore and experiment. I always learn what I need when I’m ready to learn it. 🙂

There are 4 phases for a menstruating women every month. The idea is to become aware of what we feel like in our mind, body, emotional life so that we can create our lives around our cycle and ensure we are optimized throughout the month. The week we are menstruating is called the analysis phase, then the initiation phase, then the communication/collaboration phase, then completion phase. (Got these phases from Alisa Vitti)

I am currently in the communication and collaboration phase (day 16). I can totally feel an increase in my energy and a desire for more connection and collaboration with other women. This tends to be a really goooood space for me. I feel pretty light, free and passionate and have an abundance of creativity and joy. #WootWoot

Mind/Heart/Spirit Goodness: I feel a strong inspiration and enthusiasm to optimize. It seems like I’ve always had this inner desire to grow and expand. I also have to be aware of the Superwoman Persona, she likes to creep in the back door and outshine the joy. If I feel the pushing to prove rather than the pulling of something greater than myself I check in with the stories I’m telling and tune back into the frequency of intuition. Today, was all about resting in that blissful place and giving those “not good enough” voices time off. They’ve had their day (years). It’s time to shift! To quote Michale Bernard Beckwith from his song, One Day in Heaven:

Notice and release your acquisitive nature
That part of you that wants to get something to be happy
Instead shift your awareness and ask the question
“How can I bring value to these individuals that are
coming into my life?
And, reminding myself that I bring value by doing the work and having infinite patience in whatever areas I’m playing with. I will always be changing, everything is dynamic. There is no getting there, it’s all right here, change happens now, today. Karen Maezen Miller brings this one home:

You can change in an instant. You can change your mind. You can change your timing. You can change your approach. You can change your words. You can laugh instead of scream. You can hop on one foot. You can step away from the fray instead of stepping in. You can give up, give in, and go in a completely different direction than you’d like to. You can do the dishes later. What then? What next? The Zen master has told you, “You embody the golden breeze.” You are change. You have infinite power to relax, to release, to change, and thus to change everything. If you find that you don’t have the energy or the good humor to do so this time, I will understand. There will be many opportunities afforded you.

Yes, we always have the choice to do something differently. What would our lives feel like if we moved from opportunity to opportunity knowing it is all unfolding with divine perfection? We either show up authentically or not. If not, we get back in the game and give it another go. Who I choose to be today will impact my tomorrows. There is no need to strive for perfection, as we all know that doesn’t exist. Yet, living in integrity with my soul is paramount. Am I living in integrity with my Highest Self? I’m the only one that can know. When the limiting voices are silenced, I believe we all know. Remember, you embody the golden breeze. Let the breeze guide you.

Gratitude & Appreciation: I am grateful for my yummy muffins. I am grateful for the fun hike we did. It was a perfect day. So much love and laughter. I’m continually in awe watching my son grow and learn. I am grateful for Beckwith (love that guy!).  I am grateful for all the women who’ve commented and shared love about this blog. I am grateful for the Oasis peeps, such an amazing community. I am grateful that I’m a mother and a wife. Wow. It’s a totally different stage of my life and I am so blessed to be living the life that I do. #infinitegratitude

  1. Checking in with ourselves. When I read that I realized I rarely do that. I love how you wrote that only we will know if we are living into our highest self. I once asked my spiritual mom, how you have time to read and study your scriptures , and she told me her grandmother had 16 children, and she would rock in her rocking chair with a blanket over her head, and read her bible. Pictured another way, I can see tribal woman sitting around a fire with there children in laps and dancing while woman are clapping hands, singing, holding hands. Pictured another way mom is up at 4 am getting her spiritual food through reading, praying. crying. Pictured another way, mom is up after family is asleep enjoying the quiet while living out her creativity. Tears. We have so many opportunities to check in, if only we were valuable enough to take them. Thank you Alexandra😘

  2. Big Smile. I appreciate you sharing all of these pictures of what it might look like. Yes! Yes! Yes!
    We do have so many opportunities to check in but I think most of us haven’t had an abundance of role models on what that might look.

    I find that it’s a deep commitment…a diligence that keeps me coming back to myself again and again. It can be easy to lose our footing in the world today. But, taking the space (even if for a few minutes) to check in is indespensible. And, I agree it does start with valuing ourselves and finding creative ways to whatever calls to our heart. I believe the world is a better place when more women rise up and be the creators of their lives. We must believe we matter. This a big part of my personal and professional life’s work!!
