I’m on a nutritional detox/cleanse until almost the end of the month, so I won’t actually be
drinking anything this weekend, but in my mind, oh in my mind, I will be turning up! 😂 More
importantly, I’m celebrating that I recognized some unhealthy patterns had creeped into my
behavior this week.
Since the eclipse, energetically I’ve been all over the emotional map. If you are in any way
sensitive to planetary movement & cycles, I’m sure it’s been that way for you also. My body and
spirit needed lots of rest, and limited interaction, yet I constantly found myself trying to “push
through“ because... adulting. The more I tried to force myself into completing certain
activities, the more drained I felt. Although spiritually I know to surrender to BEing, sometimes I
still battle with forcing myself to keep DOing.
As an athlete & former personal trainer, the idea of “no pain, no gain“ is ingrained into my
existence. I know that doing as many reps/sets to “failure“ is a fantastic strategy to build muscle
and strength. But what about when you’re not in the gym? What happens when you continue to
aggressively lift and press physical, earthly tasks in your spiritual life, when you are fatigued and
in need of divine restoration? ➡ You prolong your healing, stretch out your lessons, block your
ability to receive intuition and restrict your own creativity.💡� No bueños. To that end, here’s 7
valuable concepts I became present to this week:
🔑The same strategy that works wonderfully in one area, can lead to your demise in another.
Know which tactic to use and when to use it, because if the only tool you have is a hammer,
you’ll see everything as a nail.
🔑 Avoidance, self-sabotage and irresponsibility can often mirror self-care. Be deeply honest
with yourself about WHY you’re doing what you’re doing... or not doing. Laziness can lay on
the same pillow with relaxation.
🔑We are human beings, not human doings. My highest value in humanity and service comes
from who I AM, not from what I do. Who I am, informs what I do, not the other way around.
🔑Silence enhances discernment and clarity; without them, you’ll never find your way towards
anything important to you.
🔑 Comparison is truly the thief of joy. Comparing your journey, progress, accomplishments &
advancements to anyone else’s will lead you into a pit of despair. Don’t go there.
🔑Life is not a sprint, it’s a marathon… and your only competitor is yourself.
🔑We never get it all “done” and we never get it all “right”, keep being the best you can be anyway.
🔑When you need solitude, let the people who love you know that you are okay, you need some
space and that you’ll be in communication soon. We’re all in this together and it takes a village
to stay grounded in the chaotic world. Community is necessary.
If you drink, lift a glass for me this weekend, as I down wheatgrass shots. Ayyy! If you need
support in learning to unplug from the noise and tune into what’s calling you, hit

and taking steps to being healthier every day! 🍷 Salud, Audrey
