Ritual to Refill the Reserves
Sometimes the magic is right “there,” at the tips of my fingers, swirling around in my heart and head and then sometimes - it’s gone. Right now I am at a loss for words. I keep trying to gather my awareness, to push something forward only to have it slip away. I am missing my own writing deadlines and when I MAKE myself sit to write, nothing comes out. I know it’s there but I can’t reach it.
I sense that I need a break from trying to be creative on a schedule. I feel so far from magic and love energy right now that I want to pause everything to keep from sinking deeper into this obstruction. My feeling is that I can’t keep pushing myself towards my job, towards action, towards fighting. I have to slow down and try to find some calm in my immediate world.
If we are going to use our creative energy towards change, towards building our dreams, towards making the world a better place, we need to know what to do when the reserve of strength has run dry. I need to admit that I need a break from deadlines. I need to self-care and know that it is acceptable if some weeks my only message from the Universe is to eat healthy dinners and plan a Saturday adventure for a week or more out. I need to be ok with the fact that some weeks my big dream is going to feel far away and that if I bring my focus down to my immediate world, I can allow the Universe to handle the bigger stuff.
So this week, the week of love, I am giving myself a break. I am giving myself the ultimate self-love break.
This week I will only do things that are necessary and only do them when I feel I can. I am giving myself permission to step back from the battles. This week I accept that I am nearly empty and need to refill my reserves of energy, of love and of magic. It’s healthy to know when you need to take a break, apply some self-love, self-care, and restorative calm.
Ritual for the Week
Spend one day, one afternoon or one hour doing something that will help you to re-connect with whatever it is that fills your emotional reservoir. Give yourself the time and space that your heart and soul need to feel excited again, to feel creative. Take this time to really give yourself the opportunity to refill your reservoir and reclaim your creative energy. Spend this time resting and refueling.
And love. LOVE. LOVE as much as you can.
