This is going to be the most uncomfortable week yet in the HW Spring Reset. True transformation is uncomfortable.
Let go of habits, beliefs, doctrines, stories, myths, and the parts of religion and spirituality that no longer serve you. Don't search for the good or what you believe to be right - these may be informed by human knowledge that is lacking, biased, patriarchal, politics, and or trauma. Instead, let's be guided and search for the truth. Look for truth within your body, cultivate a deep knowingness of the limitless, connections to the divine that no words in a text could ever capture, and breath in the spirit of nature.
Find your deep personal truths by being curious, investigating, and exploring. Set aside quiet time (at least 10 minutes a day) to get back to yourself; to listen to your wants, needs, and passions. If it feels too uncomfortable just to sit there, engage in "busy work/multi-task" (something that does not require thought) in the silence like walking, knitting, folding laundry, etc.
If you are anything like me, I constantly fill my personal time with music, podcasts, TV, radio, etc. Instead, this week (with you), I am going to get comfortable with the silence so I can hear my spirit in the chaos of the world and listen to subtle cues of the universe I often miss.
Here are some journal prompts for this week:
Answer them all, a combination, select a few or come up with your own.
