♥ Part of the Series 35 Lessons at 35 Years of Life ♥
With a commitment for bite-sized + deliberate action today, tomorrow, and every day, I keep putting one foot in front of the other to create what I believe in—Intentional Justice™
Soul Medicine (v.)
✨ an experience or action to be present with your essence or inner knowing ✨
As I shared in Lesson 11: You are the Mama (Guardian) of Your Soul, the “simple act to try something new led to my first commitment to my own personal dose of soul medicine.”
Acupuncture :: my first dose of soul medicine
A mind, body, and soul connection similar to that of being on the basketball court, my first love and physical soul medicine. Unlike basketball, acupuncture is an opportunity to lie still and simply listen. Listen to the swirling wonder in my thoughts, a curiosity to hone-in on the themes rising up and asking to have a seat at the table. Then a stillness that comes from simply noticing. Scanning the mind and body for what’s asking to be heard.
This is how I experience acupuncture—a tool to my inner knowing. Now let me be clear when I began this journey, this was not what I imagined experiencing. Instead, I had a goal for a specific outcome—”a dream to slowly and methodically decrease my bipolar medication because one thing was for certain–I did not want that medicine in my body when I conceived.” (shared in Lesson 11)
That’s the “quality of consciousness” I brought to this action. As shared in Oprah’s new book, The Wisdom of Sundays,
An intention is a quality of consciousness that you bring to an action. ~Gary Zukav
While I have unconsciously lived this wisdom for years, it wasn’t until I began noticing a theme being reflected back to me—the intentionality I bring to everything I do—that my goals shifted to intentions.
Intentional Justice™ IS…
…Your Personal Soul Medicine
Intention is everything. Goals are attainable.
Only YOU know the quality of your consciousness.
This, the heart of Intentional Justice™—bite-sized + deliberate daily action today, tomorrow, every day!
The ironic thing is that I did not set out intending to embark on my own personal journey of seeking justice. It simply began with love, leadership, and trusting my vision for becoming a mama. In doing so, I found the ideal dose of soul medicine to Love Myself like a Mother! with Intentional Justice™
My Current Soul Medicine
Let me count all the ways I love to feed by heart and soul. Here are just a handful of my favs…
- Walking the dog
- QT with my daughter and wife (together and 1-on-1)
- Scandal or Empire
- The sun
- Organic + whole-as-possible yummy food with libation as a bonus!
- Family adventures
The later, family adventure is what resets me for The Lovelution as I continue to seek Intentional Justice™ (bite-sized + deliberate action) in my daily life when things can feel like a struggle in the juggle.
From our recent November adventures…
Listening to Your Heart
We all need a reason to come home…
A place to be our authentic self or at the very least to put our best foot forward as we take bite-sized + deliberate action to feed our souls.
- What if, all you needed was space to listen to your heart?
- What if, you were your own fuel?
- What if, you committed to improving the quality of your consciousness by investing in YOU?
There’s no need to keep wondering because I’m answering the call I felt nearly 5 years ago when I set a powerful intention to listen to my heart about how I wanted to feel.
I’m thrilled to share that I’m in the process of creating The Soul-Medicine Sisterhood. A virtual collective that feeds your soul for The Lovelution—a journey to self to lead with love + revolution in your life + career + community. This is how we achieve justice in our lives, or better yet Intentional Justice™ Because…
We all need a reason to come home…
A place to love ourselves the way we dream and deserve.
This collective will invite you on a monthly journey to tap into your soul medicine by listening and tapping into your own cycle cypher: an invitation to name your Truth, claim your power through the intersectionality of your identity, and accountability to take action in releasing, living, and relearning.
This activates your inner knowing allowing yourself to G R O W as you…
Listen, Love, and Live your Call to Action.
