March Comes In Like A Lion, And Goes Out Like A Lamb…
March 30, 2017
You may have heard this saying in reference to the changeable weather in March.
In my playing around with setting my March intentions I decided right now I was more a baby lamb and I was growing towards being a lioness!
So I am reversing the order of the animals and thinking about how much growth can I allow this month!
How bold and fierce can I become?
Could I ACTUALLY allow myself to become a full-fledged roaring lion?
How can I use the cuddly, loving, gentle energy that comes to mind with the lamb to support my growth?
Where can I be nicer and gentler with myself?
Where do I need to step up and bring more fierceness and protection?
I love working with dichotomies as it really helps with integration.
So which process are you in? Growing from lamb to lion, releasing from lion to lamb? So many ways to allow ourselves to process!
For March I have chosen the theme of EMPOWERMENT!
So becoming a Lioness feels right!
I recently had a conversation with a sister where she threw her hands up and said, ‘everybody’s talking about empowerment but no one explains what that means!’
So I began to explain my thoughts and teachings around empowerment.
It was a beautiful conversation and we both gained from it.
I realized that many of us would benefit from this conversation.
My definition of empowerment is multifaceted and goes a bit beyond where my friend Webster leaves it.
The first facet of this I will touch on here, is part of how I plan to do all that I am going to do this month to embrace my lioness emerging without going into drain mode. It my secret sauce!
Empowerment is keeping IN-MY POWER, keeping my energy inside.
It is tending energy leaks and releasing my energy, focus, attention, even conversation from things that are either not mine to deal with, or are drains on me.
By unplugging from places I do not need to be feeding with my power, like family dramas, gossip, unnecessary FB scrolling, negative media, or toxic relationships, I have more energy ie: power for myself!
It’s amazing when we start unplugging and calling our energy back how much more support we have for ourselves.
So where can you unplug?
What can you release for March to see how it effects you?
