From Darkness Comes the Light

On this new moon, I write to you.

Of new beginnings

Of dreams shared

Of wishes granted

Of feelings layered

The seeking within

The soul shining bright

The movement of magic

The breath of delight

A simple message

A way to take care

A moment to be

A pause gets you there

Sit and be silent

Sit and be still

Sit and be present

Sit and re-fill

As we drift closer to the darkest day of the year, I encourage you to find ways to invite light into your life, filling yourself with joy and anticipation, releasing the darkness inside to create space for the light, the re-birth of yourself.

Peace, Love, and Wellness,

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

      Thanks for asking! One of the most helpful things that I’ve added to my writing rituals is morning pages. Writing without specific focus or intent gets the ideas flowing and often some of my best ideas surface in those pages written in the early hours. I also use Evernote, and have it on my phone so I can capture ideas whenever they come and I’m easily able to return to them later to flesh them out a bit more. I believe, as with most things, that it is just a matter of starting. Start writing and release expectations and judgement. Lean into it and trust that the ideas will find shape through your words. I hope that was helpful!
