It feels like, Groundhog Day

As the long weekend comes to a close, I notice a post from the same time last year … and there are so many similiarities.

Its rained all weekend, and its been cold and windy.

I’ve been reflecting again, about the same things as last year.

The sad thing is, is that I let myself become overwhelmed by everything going on in my life, and I forgot to take care of me.

While I’ve learnt to speak with authority and not to be afraid of my power, I made a commitment to myself, and I’m sorry to say that I didn’t keep it. That commitment was:

  1. Only healthy food will enter my body.
  2. I will exercise every day.
  3. I will lose 12 kg by Christmas.
  4. I will meditate every day.
  5. I will have a massage, at a minimum, of once a month.

So I’m making that commitment once again …

The funny thing is, is that I published an article in my newsletter recently about making and keeping commitments to yourself:

Most of us are pretty good at keeping our commitments to others — as best we can of course, given the long to-do lists and crowded schedules so often dictated by modern life.

 We usually have bood intentions, so when we’re late for an appointment, or forget a promise we’ve made, we notice.

 Have you ever considered, however, how well you keep your commitments to yourself?

 As a Soul Coach, I encourage my clients to commit to doing something for themselves — something they really want to do — and make it stick.

I ask them to choose what I call a commitment to their soul — something that really matters to them personally.

A commitment to one’s soul is often aligned with a person’s higher path, a journey their soul is calling them to follow. For example one of my clients said: “Each time I get an intuitive hit, I’m going to honour it.” A soul commitment is also very specific, for example my client Kate chose to commit to meditating for 15 minutes every day.

Regardless of what you choose, making and keeping commitments to yourself can:

  • Increase your self-esteem: When we respect ourselves enough to do somethingn we really want to do, we are giving ourselves the all-important message that we matter.
  • Boost your energy: All the undone things in our lives have a tendency to drain us. When we accomplish something we promised ourselves we would, it frees up energy so we cann do more!
  • Awaken your sense of purpose: Clients often come to me looking for help discovering what they’re “here to do.” The more we honour our inner-truth in seemingly small, tangible ways, the more easily we discover what else our souls want us to do!

Now the fun starts — what commitment do you want to make?

As I often tell my clients, “Start small and take it from there … then watch the magic in your life unfold”.
