As we finish the first quarter of 2019, it is important to reflect on our goals. Have you been accomplishing the small steps to reach your dreams? This is a great time for some self reflection. Deciding what to work harder on as well as celebrating the small victories you've already had so far this year.
April Color of the Month - Lavender
This month we are focusing on spiritual growth. For me, I have been dedicating time this month for both a closer connection with God as Easter approaches as well as a connection with the universe through yoga and meditation. This is why the color for April is Lavender. Lavender reminds us of spring flowers blooming while creating a tranquil and spiritual energy. Purple in general is a color that embodies the balance of energy from red and calmness from blue, making it an all-inclusive color.
Lavender encourages spiritual thinking, creativity and has calming and soothing influences. What ways are you able to connect spiritually?
How does this help us achieve our goals?
There are many ways that you can use the power of positive thoughts and actions to help you achieve your goals. Here are just a few tips to try yourself!
Meditation to Visualize Your Goals - Choose an area in your life that you would like to transform. Imagine the best outcome and how it will change your life. Envision your small to-do lists being checked off all to reach that final dream. Do not think of any limitations or negativity, but instead focus and connect. Take a deep breath - inhale and as you exhale, use your breath to keep focusing of your goal and creating positive energy. Continue your meditation practice opening your heart and mind.
Yoga - Heals the body mentally & physically - Try a yoga routine that you can find online or go to a class and really listen and follow the instructors technique. Yoga is one of the best ways to connect spiritually and feel strong and grounded. The poses give you confidence and help you access your true feelings and intuition so that you can really step into your full potential.
Writing - The power of SMART. S- Specific. M- Measurable. A - Achievable. R- Relevant. T - Time Limited. I read this on a blog and I absolutely loved the idea. Sometimes our goals seem so huge that we just get overwhelmed. But this is a simple method that if we take the time, can really focus on both the GOAL and HOW to achieve it.
Daily Affirmations - The first time I heard about this idea was listening to a podcast. Each morning, give yourself some extra time, practice gratitude, and begin your daily affirmations with a nice cup of coffee! Just by telling yourself "I am enough." "I have the power to create change." "I am loved." "I let go of all that no longer serves me." And add your own, add anything that will make you feel closer to achieving everything you want in life!
Lavender is a beautiful color found in nature, considered the most delicate and precious. Give yourself time because we as humans are also delicate and precious, but so amazing. We can accomplish everything we set out to do. This month and really this whole year, try to get in a practice of positive thoughts and actions.
2019 - The Year Of The Best You!
Color can influence our lives in such a positive way. Come back each month & join the journey of your best version of you! I am looking forward to helping you throughout 2019 to ensure a happy, positive & sparkling year!
