Feel better now! Discover secrets to connecting with your inner alchemist with this love letter:
Hello My Love, do you want to feel better? This is for you!
It’s been a challenging week around here…maybe for you as well?
I’ve had to throw dearly held plans right out the window in order to make wise decisions. I know I’m not the only one.
Maybe you have a situation right now (or two…or three…) which requires some uncomfortable piloting.
I’ll tell you straight up – adjustments on the fly are NOT my idea of a good time. I’m a huge fan of having a darn good idea about what’s going to happen. Especially when it’s something I’ve worked for. Delightful surprises are most welcome, of course, but not the sucky variety!
Thankfully, I know there are gifts hidden within the…well…sucky parts.
I also know paying attention to a few keys will unlock magic within your life and help you feel better fast.
Here’s the deal.
You have within you an inner alchemist.
It’s true. We all do!
And your inner alchemist is able to help you transform even your most perplexing conundrums.
All that’s required is communication.
Want to know how?
Here’s exactly what I do when a challenge arises.
1. First, I exclaim some version of “Oh Shit” in
side my head. (Ok, sometimes it pops out where people can hear it. Being an alchemist isn’t about getting things perfect, it’s about living from a space of intentional transformation.)
2. I recognize that I’m triggered and remember it’s tough to be responsible (Read: response-able….able to respond…) when I’m reactive.
3. I notice what feelings are flying around in my mind and body. There is power in naming.
4. I thank my mind and body for communicating and ask: “What do I want?”
I give myself permission to be honest about whatever comes to mind first – but I dive deeper. Instead of getting stuck with “I wish this crappy incident hadn’t happened…,” I encourage myself to discover what FEELING state I want to experience BEYOND my desired outer form.
Here’s a useful question: “If I have what it is that I think I want on the outside, what would that give me on the inside?”
5. With gratitude and compassion, I honor my heart’s desire and begin to seek small action steps to move me in the direction of what I want. For an extra boost, I utilize these tried and true Secrets from the Alchemist: 10 Easy Ways to Nourish Your Spirit!
And this, Dearheart, is how YOU can set about alchemizing your life and feel better now.
It’s simple, but not easy.
Therefore, to assist you on your path, I’m offering a July alchemical drawing to gift TWO of my readers with an intimate, 75-minute Alchemy Session.
Entering is simple!
Comment on this email right now – before you chicken out – OR write me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Tell me where you are in the world and the single biggest area of your life you are ready to alchemize.
Here’s what will happen as soon as I receive your request:
I’ll hand-write your name, location and heart’s desire with my purple fountain pen. I’ll place your entry into a beautifully carved maple bowl which I will hold in a space of alchemical prayer until our next full moon on Tuesday, July 19th. I will close my eyes, place the bowl high above my head and choose two names to partner up with.
I’d love for you to be one of them!
With Love and Alchemy,
I feel I have come a long way in the last five years but I still live in too much fear…fear of knowing who I am, why I am, and what do I want. I want to like myself, be confident in who I am, and be a witness to healing to others.
Where I am right now:
I have been plopped into a whole new geographical land and in doing so a new mental and spiritual land as well. I am discovering the “new normal”
Single biggest area to alchemize:
My roadmap for the new normal needs some honing. I am very aware of how helpful it would be for me to tap into the feelings I want for this new roadmap. Being aware of the usefulness of that tool, however, seems to have heightened my attention to every little thing that is not tapping into that! My mind is being super squirrelly when I try to sit down and do this exercise.
