During my full moon ritual yesterday, on of my intentions was to be able to fully expose my core and trust it to support me. That was both a physical core (you can see the plank video on both my personal Instagram and Facebook pages) and a spiritual core.
You know how you reach your true core, it's the place where your soul feels a little shaky like my side plank foot quiver (I don't think you need to see the video to grasp what I"m talking about, but it's in my FB somewhere).
When you get to your true core, it's the place where you're like can I really be that or share that? Where you feel all warm and fuzzy and like maybe it's a little too real or raw for the world outside of you.
The scariest part of my true core is outing my unique spirituality. I am a Jesus follower who also believes in the healing power of crystals, blessing oil and who learned that Jesus is her spirit guide during a distance Reiki session (and also my friend said she had never seen that before, so high five me!). I'm half Sanskrit mantra, half Christian music. I'm down for most kinds of rituals (which I sort of attribute to my Catholic upbringing....they love a good ritual.) And it feels scary to admit that. Because in the real world, it doesn't fit neatly and without ruffling any feathers.
And also I'm the girl who after she learned that Jesus was her spirit guide thought "Jesus is my spirit animal. OOOOHHHH I should make a shirt that says that."
P.S. In the spirit of true authenticity, my intention about my core was to release my bloated stomach. My affirmation was to feel confident exposing my core. I can woo woo any body part. It's the magic of working with me. You have a weak muscle or ailment, if you dig deep enough, there's probably a spiritual answer. Don't even get me started on squats.
p.s. If you are feeling the call to work with me, let's chat. I currently have spots open for 1:1 and group coaching and would love to help you love your core more :) You can find out more about group coaching here. And individual coaching here.
