Every year at about this time – with the Summer Solstice taking place and the mid-year point approaching – I like to do a little check-in with myself. This is the perfect time to gauge your progress and see what needs to be adjusted. Mid-year check-in: Three important questions to ask yourself:
How am I doing on this year’s goals?
I grab my yearly goal list and give it a good once over. It’s time to prioritize and re-evaluate.
- What have I accomplished that I can check off?
- What are my top three, and what can I start doing NOW to continue the momentum?
- What are my bottom three?
- What am I wasting time on, that could be better spent on priority goals?
One BIG thing to remember here is to be kind and gentle with yourself! Give yourself some slack and don’t get discouraged if you’re not as far along as you think you should be. 2020 has thrown us some major curve balls! But even if the past six months had been “normal”, things happen! Holding yourself accountable to a deadline so you can get a goal accomplished is important, yes. But it’s also important to be realistic and remember that these are your deadlines – you can freely change them if you need to. So is it maybe time to update any deadlines?
What do I need to let go of right now?
It’s time to take inventory of what you’re holding on to, and see what you really need to let go of. What’s no longer serving you? What’s holding you back? What could you release, in order to make room for the new things you really want?
I look at this step from a holistic perspective
- What can I release physically? What items around the house could you sell, donate, give away, or trash?
- What can I release emotionally? Are you holding on to guilt, resentment, anger, or any other damaging emotions?
- What can I release mentally? What is your mind holding you back from?
- What can I release spiritually? What negative energies have you picked up over time?
A complete chakra clearing and activation will help rid your self of any blocks to your success – emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I do online group chakra clearings in June and December, so check my Events and Workshops page for upcoming sessions you can join. I’m also happy to do a private session by appointment.
No matter what you’re letting go of or which “category” it’s in, once it’s gone you will have a new sense of lightness and freedom. Such an amazing feeling!
What do I want to bring into my life right now?
I like to save the fun one for last! Now that I’ve cleared out all the stuff I don’t need anymore, this is the perfect time to think about what I want to manifest, and then set it into motion. I have two favorite ways to manifest.
My manifesting box is a small, pretty box I got at the dollar store. In it, I put pictures of the things I want to attract, as I visualize them. It’s similar to a “vision board”, another great manifesting tool. Some of the pictures I have are photos from magazines, but most of them were just printed out from a Google image search. And you don’t need to use a picture – sometimes I just write something on a piece of paper and tuck it in the box. On top of these photos and notes, I’ve placed a crystal that I’ve charged with the intention to manifest these things.
Mid-year (and year-end) is the time when I go through the box and remove pictures of the things that I have successfully manifested (yay!) and also add any new things I want to attract. If there’s anything I’ve changed my mind about manifesting, I remove that item from the box. Then I clear and charge the crystal, or perhaps replace it with a different one, and put the box back on my altar where it goes to work for me!
Affirmations work for literally anything you want to attract or change! Saying them out loud and daily is important – when your voice is saying them day after day, your subconscious and the Universe conspire to make these things happen for you. The affirmations you say will become real – I’ve seen it happen with myself and with lots of my clients. I personally have successfully manifested money, new jobs, clients, event tickets, relationships, business opportunities, and even a new home. There is literally no limit!
At the solstice/mid-year and equinox/year-end, I like to take a good look at my current affirmations and see if there is anything I need to tweak. I have a LOT of affirmations but here are a few of them:
- I am a light, I am full of energy!
- I am at peace
- I am protected by Divine Love
- I attract people who need my help and value the services I provide
- Thank you, Archangel Michael, for your protection today and always
- Thank you, Spirit Team, for your help today with…
