You and Your Shadow

Hello, dreamy babes!

Today I’m talking about an often overlooked and somewhat taboo part of self development – shadow work. Often associated with magickal people, it’s the key for anyone on the path to a more developed self awareness. No matter how you define it, we all aim to live an abundant life. Shadow work might just be the secret to creating the life you desire. Alright, let’s get co-creating!

As I took the dive (head first) into embracing my true calling, my passions, my abundance – I cordially introduced myself to my shadow. It’s not that cute, lanky, black silhouette that follows me around all day. It’s the other me that dwells inside. It’s the unconscious me. Now, I know we’re all aware that there are darker parts of our being that we aren’t all too keen on, but have you ever considered that you might as well embrace those parts of you, too? I’d like to lovingly suggest that you add this to your bag of tricks. Knowing and loving your shadow is the missing piece.

Nurture Your Power

 

Alright, it’s autumn!! Like many Midwestern women, it is my favorite time of year.

Bring on the layers, bring on the cider, bring on the smell of leaves, bring on the creepy stories. This time of harvest is a perfect time to not only fly your freak flag proudly, but also to tune into what makes you feel good and warm.

Lately, what’s keeping me warm and holding my focus is nurturing my power. The key and the result are the same; let it go.

“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

Let the bullshit that doesn’t serve your goal go. Let the haters go. The cloud of laziness, the fear of failure and/or missing out, the insecurity; let ’em go. I’ve found, and I’ve said it before, that with this mindset, even the jerks that cross my path and test my capacity to ‘let it go’ can’t shake my strong hold on this. This is the key to my successes, big or small. Babylove, it’s the key to your success, too.

Embrace Your Truth & Trust the Universe

Hello, friends – new and old. I have got to tell you something!

I don’t believe in coincidence anymore.

I walk around wearing a 50 year old dress and a sleeve of sailor tattoos like it’s no big deal, but I’m afraid to talk about magickal moments?

The other morning, fate walked up and said hello to me. I mean to say, it was louder than ever – like, “HEY! Hey you. ELYN! Look and listen already, damn it!” I’ve always believed certain things were meant to be, I’ve seen the ‘signs’ as they were presented (whether I chose to listen or not), I’m very spiritual but had no real ground to stand on in that area. You might even say I’m very superstitious.

Now, when I say ‘the other morning’ I don’t mean yesterday; this happened a week ago. I sat with this magickal occurrence for an entire week!! I’ve decided, like I said already, it’s time to come out with it.
