April 2019 New Moon Invitation:
Re-discover what delights you
Mimosa kisses. Daisy dukes. Live luxuriously.
The first quarter of this year has been a beautiful transformation process for me. After putting in the work to stack cash, I’ve created a rock solid financial foundation and mental space to explore and experiment with different ideas for projects I want to pursue.
This allowed me to take a step back, observe and ask myself, “How do I define success in this chapter of my journey?”
Do I want more private clients? Hmmmm, not really. Unless they are an amazing match.
Do I want to teach dance again? Maybe! Not as a studio instructor, but I’d love to put on more Rich, Sexy, & Confident masterclasses.
Do I want create more digital programs? Yes, absolutely!
Do I want to pursue my contracts as a lifestyle and fitness ambassador? Yes, for sure!
Do I love the direction that the Socialites are going in? 1000% yes!
Do I want more publicity? Yes, yes, yes! I feel ready for all that those opportunities would bring.
How do I want to feel throughout this process? Easeful, joyful, inspired, challenged, nourished.
After March’s full moon invitation for inspired cre-action, I gave myself full permission to dream and start creating all the things that I desire. As the Money & Mimosas brand continues to grow, my vision for its potential continues to expand and the possibilities for it as a lifestyle/financial education brand are LIMITLESS.
So, I started taking inspired cre-action to make more of these possibilities a reality. As I was doing this, my inner guidance showed me a vision of my 21-year old self. A very ambitious young woman who had a lot going for her, and found herself at a cross-roads of opportunities. A woman who was happy, but didn’t have the self-care tools that her future self would hold in her treasure chest.
Attaining true financial agency and financial wellbeing, requires a high degree of self-awareness, self-love, self-trust, self-acceptance and self-compassion. And similar to fitness, it requires on-going maintenance of taking care of self in order to maintain your financial wellbeing (which is a combination of material wealth AND a healthy relationship with money).
The vision showed me that there is an element of self-MIStrust that I am holding on to from my younger years. This mistrust arose from not tending to my needs. I would work myself to the bone to achieve a goal and not take time to recover.
The vision showed me that I needed to re-integrate my 21-year old’s self into my being. Honor her desires and her definition of success. AND - this part is key- give her the tools that she didn’t have before that would bring her dreams into reality.
The vision asked me:
Therefore, this new moon’s money invitation is to RE-discover what delights you.
Here is an exercise to help you reconnect with the woman you once were and the dreams you once had.
Your favorite tea. My recommendation is Yogi’s Cinnamon Vanilla tea for healthy skin.
Your favorite body oil. My recommendation is the coconut nourishing dry oil by body shop.
Your favorite smooth stone. My recommendation is a jade stone.
Your favorite face cleanser and toner
An open. clear, relaxed mind
Set the mood by treating yourself like a Queen. Light candles and pour yourself a hot cup of tea. Tonight I’m drinking Yogi’s Cinnamon Vanilla tea for healthy skin.
Grab your coconut oil. I use the Coconut Nourishing Dry Oil by Body Shop. And lather it over your entire body and face. Rub it into your body until it soaks in. For your face, leave a little slip for your lymphatic drainage.
For my drainage, I use one of the smooth stones I bought from a hippy dippy crystal store in Oakland. The stone I’m using is a jade stone which brings forth happiness, health and prosperity. Lightly rub the stone over face working out towards your ears and down towards your neck. Be careful to not rub under your eye area because this is a sensitive area. Then, move towards your neck and rub down your neck. This drains out blockages/congestion in your skin that causes puffiness and blocks abundance from your life.
Then, give yourself a steam facial. First boil water. Once it is boiling, I remove it from the stove. For this steam facial, I am adding epsom salt and lavender essential oil. With a towel to keep the steam flowing towards my face, I place my face over the pot for 15 minutes.
After I steam my skin, then I’m doing an egg yolk facial. Once the facial is dried, I rinse it off and use my Luminance skincare products to cleanse and tone my skin.
Next, grab your journal and do a journey back to your younger self. What’s the first image that pops up for you? For me, my 21-year old self appeared. Your image may be younger or older. Write down what you remember you enjoyed doing at the age. What were her dreams for her future?
Then ask her, “what do you need from me to feel loved, to feel safe and feel supported?” Write down everything that she shares with you and promise her that you will keep your word.
Sending you lots of love. I can’t wait to witness the money magic coming to you.
Want to silence your inner critic and boost your self-love?
