12 Sacred Self-Care Rituals to get through the holiday or any day…
Self-care is a priority. Period. These 12 sacred self-care rituals from the Goddess Provisions Sacred Self-Care Rituals Oracle deck are among some of my favorite for detoxing, recharging and taking some time everyday to make myself a priority.
We have the time to slow down when we make the time to slow down. Let go of the glorification of “busy”, put down your phone (it isn’t helping, unless you’re currently reading this post on it) and pick up something that is going to better help you take care of you.
Speak words of kindness to yourself! Write down positive affirmations on small pieces of paper. Fold them up and put them in a pretty jar or dish to pluck one (or a few) from daily. With the holiday season upon us (whether you celebrate or not) it's easy to get our own energy in a funk dealing with others. To get started try positive affirmations like - I am...; I can... ; I am love; I feed my spirit; I am allowed... Pick one, take a deep breath and let it resonate with your energy. Hold on to that and revisit as often as needed or wanted.
You have plenty to be grateful for. Write it down. It sounds simple enough but to see all that your grateful for (big and small) is a great mood motivator and can help put your mind at ease when you have moments of doubt.
Time to yourself may not be easy to come by but it is essential to rest and recharge. Though tempting avoid using this time to make to-do lists and check your phone. Take a total break in the quietest place you can come across. If you must do something try light stretching or daydreaming (yes, I said daydreaming).
I created my first vision board a couple of years ago and it had quite the positive effect on my family. Spend some time creating a vision board that represents what you want to see [more of] in your life. The guide for this deck suggests even putting some of those images on your computer of phone screen background.
