How do you feel about the Festive Period?

How do you feel about the Festive Period?


 

I absolutely LOVE Christmas and almost everything about it.

 

It's the most magical time for me, my girls and my family.


 

There are a few things which bring anxiety and give that burning sensation rising from my tummy up to my heart.


 

As a single mummy, I find the financial side a bit of stretch, especially as the clinic I work at closes over Christmas & New Year.

 

Then the car needs £600 worth of work doing to it and deposits need paying for school trips! Which all comes out of the blue, you know how it goes!


 

Also, as much as my family all love each other, we are human, and we sometimes argue, especially over how to cook the turkey!


 

In reality, I have saved up for Christmas all year and look forward to this time.


 

Here are a few journaling prompts I like to use when I feel my thoughts and anxiety starting to go on a downward spiral.


 

Writing the answers to these questions, I do one per day, really helps me stay positive and grounded.


 

Focusing on all the things I love and the things that made me feel good as a child and more recently lift my spirits.


 

Give them, and a go and I would love to know your thoughts.


 

Here are 10 Christmas journal prompts to get you started:


 

What is your favourite Christmas memory as a child?

What's your favourite Christmas movie and why?

When do you decorate your Christmas tree? Do you have tree-decorating traditions?

Do you have Christmas Eve boxes? What's the best gift you have got in them?

Do you open your Christmas presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? What traditions do you have?

What time do you wake up on Christmas Day? Who wakes up first?

What are your favourite Christmas smells?

How do you spend Christmas day?

Every year we buy a new Christmas Reindeer and give them names such as Ralph the Reindeer, Lorraine Deer, Twiggy... Do you have an ornament collection or tradition?

Do you dress up or dress casually for Christmas lunch/dinner? What do you love to wear?


 

Please comment below with your feel-good journaling prompts and share your answers! Sharing is caring!

Will you go further than the crowd?

Posted on 31 July, 2019 at 9:05 Comments comments (0)

"The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.


I love this quote by Albert Einstein.

As an introvert I have always enjoyed solitude.


People are often amazed when I say I’m an introvert as they say I’m confident or a social butterfly.


I think confidence and introversion are different things.


When I was little I used to get so anxious before going to parties; I used to sit and cry on the couch, clutching the gift.


I still feel painfully anxious when I walk into places on my own nowadays.


Yes, once I get going I can talk to anyone!

 

I struggle in large crowds of people, and I feel the need to “recharge” by being alone for a while afterwards.

 

I think this is why I love getting up early in the morning, it’s so quiet and peaceful and I can meditate and get on with my personal development.


 

Are you an introvert or extrovert or a bit of both?




3 Steps to heal emotional pain with Jeanne Street

Posted on 20 November, 2017 at 14:10 Comments comments (0)

 

This week I am thrilled to have a guest blog from the lovely Jeanne Street. Jeanne has kindly offered to write a blog about Emotions and the Holiday/Festive Season. I hope you enjoy Jeanne's blog :)




Hello loves!

 

My name is Jeanne Street, Penelope and I met through a Female Entrepreneur group that we are both in. I am a Medium, Healer, and Author. I like to say that I am a Catholic girl in an Angel world! My work focuses on embodying the Holy Spirit and Divine compassion, gratitude, and love.

 

My love and pride are my BFF and devoted husband of 33+ years, my 4 children, daughter and son in law and what really melts my heart are my 4 grand-babies! Penelope so lovingly invited me to share some valuable tools for you to use during the upcoming holidays!

 

In the winter months just ahead and the Holiday season just beginning, you may find yourself like myself and many others in a whirlwind of emotions. The common thread of anxiety and depression both begin with fear.

 

These fears are often the triggered aftermaths of the unknown future and/ or your past life experiences, all tied together making for emotional turmoil. Change is one of the most difficult things to manage because of how it challenges your energy.

 

You can become feel emotional with feelings that don’t always make sense. Like many others going through challenging times of great shifts and change can leave you feeling depleted and unsure of how to find your joy.


I have found great comfort in utilizing the following 12 principles from my book The Goddess You during stressful times. You will also find that pairing them with a solid foundation of spirituality, faith, God, and prayer magnify how they miraculously transform your emotional state.

 

The Goddess You principles are:

 

Quieting the mind

 

Self Love

 

Changing Your Reactions

 

Energy Basics

 

Healing the Block

 

Let It Go

 

Chakra Basics


Healthy Wealthy & Wise

 

Help I've Lost My Balance

 

Mind, Body, Soul


Intuitive GiftedYou

 

Sometimes when you experience challenging times, you may feel as if there isn't anything that can help you through and you end up repeating an old pattern that no longer serves you.

 

You can also get stuck in playing the victim role of your life. These are fear-based patterns that end up hurting you far greater than the past event and/or person who caused you the initial pain.

 

For the Highly Sensitive Person who is acutely aware of energy, you must also become awaken to how fragile your body can be during times of emotional turmoil. These times are available to you for healing and for soul transformation.

 

Having valuable tools that will help you to take precautions in how you stay in a balanced emotional state will aide not only your physical body but also your mental clarity.

 

It is important to understand that you are here on earth to do the Soul work you are experiencing.The truth is my Goddess friend while no-one likes doing this work it is far more rewarding than you may realize in the moment.

 

Going it alone never feels good, and to be honest with you the fact is everyone wants to be loved and valued. The emotional damage that occurs in your life is what causes the separation from loves healing.

 

The Angels have shared with me that you and I, and all humans are all on the same playing field, with each having pains and sufferings and life lessons to learn. And, while it sounds so easy not to blame or look back at past events that Shmego (AKA fear) guy sneaks in the second your body feels low.

 

He awakens when the energy of the moment signals your body where the memory is being stored. This is known as an emotional trigger.


Here are 3 simple steps can put into practice when you experience emotional pain:

 

1.Stop, drop and pray.Pray for what you need in the moment.

 

2.Open your heart and connect to Divine source and compassion.

 

3. Surrender your feelings and emotions you are experiencing to the Divine without following them back in time.

 

The Angels say that even though you may not believe it, you ARE indeed strong enough to look your pain in the eye and learn the valuable lesson/ lessons that are being presented to you.

 

Your pain when healed, will open the path for you to stand in your authentic soul truths.

 

Be the brave Goddess you want to be!

 

Many Blessings and Happy Holidays

 

xx Jeanne Street

How Important is Your Spiritual Health?

Posted on 9 January, 2017 at 10:35 Comments comments (0)

A great amount of emphasis is put upon emotional and physical wellbeing and although they are important, neglecting your spiritual wellbeing can be just as damaging. The journey of improving you spiritual health is something that will vary from person to person.


What is spiritual wellbeing?

Each person’s view of spiritualism will be different and everyone will have different ideas on what spiritual health is and how to nurture it. Generally speaking, it can be agreed upon that spiritualism is the search for a purpose in life and the act of achieving harmony with oneself.


Why is spiritual health important?

There has been a lot of research into the importance of spiritual health and how it can impact your day to day life. When looking at the broader picture, research indicates that those who feel spiritually fulfilled make healthier life choices and are able to better live a fuller and happier life.


How do you become spiritually healthy?

There are three main lessons for spiritual health:

1. Forgive

Forgiveness is a strong part of spiritual wellbeing. Being free of hate allows you to let go of troublesome things that can feel like they’re eating away at you. It’s not always easy but the ability to forgive allows you to regain control and frees you of that burden.

2. Be thankful

Gratitude is the affirmation of countering negative emotions or thoughts with positive ones. It shifts your focus from what is wrong to what is right. This alteration in your outlook will have a big impact on your spiritual health including your relationships with others.

3. Find inner peace

Being at peace with yourself can help you with all sorts of challenges of life. It can help you overcome the frustrations of everyday life and also give you the strength to conquer the more serious hardships of life.

Top tips for improving your spiritual health

Spiritual health doesn’t happen overnight but is an ongoing process. In order to help with this, there are some simple activities that can be undertaken on a daily or weekly basis to help you improve your spiritual wellbeing:

1. Take time to meditate.

Use this time to be quiet and allow your mind and body to relax. You can listen to free guided meditations on YouTube or at The Chopra Centre.

2. Keep a journal.

Journaling is a great way to become more in touch with your emotions and can help you to feel more connected with the world around you. I love the SoulFull 90 Day Diary & Journal by the very lovely Jill Waters (£10) and is available from Glow. Because you purchase the books in 90 day sections, it makes it less daunting to complete and you are more likely to stick with it. It is packed with inspiring affirmations and tips to keep you on track.

3. Learn Yoga.

Similar to meditation, yoga will help you to become one with your body. It’s also a great exercise for decreasing stress, managing anxiety and overcoming depression. I practise yoga daily and I absolutely love hot yoga at Yoga Life Wilmsow you leave feeling cleansed and energised.

4. Seek out a Holistic Therapist.

Having complimentary therapy treatments such as Reiki may help you achieve energy balance as it promotes relaxation, makes you feel at peace, and reduces your stress. If you would like to book a relaxing appointment please contact me or email me at [email protected] I personally practise yoga, meditation, EFT and Reiki on a daily basis for optimum inner balance.


The results I have achieved have led me to start my own holistic business, to help and share this knowledge with others. For those looking for a happier and more fulfilling life, spiritual happiness is a fundamental part of this and something we should all strive to achieve. By improving our spiritual wellbeing, the emotional and physical parts of our lives will also improve, creating a more enriching life all round.
