Carpe Momentum

Can you believe that we are more than halfway through February?!? Is it just me or has time sped up? Of course, there are also some days that drag a little bit, here and there.

Have you ever found yourself doing something that makes you feel so good and you get a sense that you could bust through or conquer anything?! Time can speed by, in a good way, when that happens. Sometimes, when I'm driving cross-country, if I have just the right music mix on and I'm singing at the top of my lungs, I feel like the luckiest, most care-free person on earth. I want to just keep driving and when I stop for a break or gas, I practically dance out of the car. When I feel like this I get some of my best ideas (I even have notebooks in the car so I can write things down when I stop) and take on the world.

Let me remind you of this week's Seed:

"If you can raise your vibration, that's the time to create some momentum. If you're feeling like your vibration is low, it's time for a nap."

I think we've all had those days or had some part of a day when we just can't seem to stir up the energy or enthusiasm for something. If it's something we must do, well, we find a way to muster through. What I'm saying is if there's any way to postpone something when we feel low, we are much better off allowing ourselves to rest, regroup, and recharge. Sometimes that might mean going to bed early. I've had the experience of knowing I needed to put on my pj's, turn on a solfeggio frequency, that is "a specific tone or sound that helps with and promotes various aspects of body and mind health" (you can find them on YouTube), and go to sleep. When I wake up, I jump out of bed and shout, "It's a great day!". I can't think of one time when I fell back into the low vibration of the evening before, unless I chose to dwell on it. I recommend that you look for things that light you up and raise your spirits and make a note of them as they are happening. If you're tackling a project and you feel your get-up-and-go has gone, think about what might get you back in the swing of things. Do you need to put on some music and start singing or dancing? What about heading outside and getting some fresh air either on foot or go for a drive? Maybe you just need a drink of water and 10 minutes of stretching and deep breathing or even meditating. You can sit on your own or find a guided meditation online. You might even need to sit down and devour an episode (or two) of The Great British Baking Show! Once you've got your mojo back, take full advantage of it. Scribble ideas on paper or have a large white board handy where you can jot down ideas as they come to you. Go with it; let yourself soar; the sky is the limit; share it with friends who will appreciate it and lift you higher - express your gratitude. Don't take on anything really important from a sense of depletion. We all have our ebbs and flows -- that's how life is. It's how we roll with them that's going to help us or get in the way. Celebrate your high vibrations and honor the lower ones. This is what I wish for you.

Sparkles and Love,
