Hi friends! Welcome to the Aura Awakening Portal ~ so grateful to have you here!!
So, it’s almost the end of June, and for me this is the time when I really assess a lot of my goals and direction for the rest of the year. 2020 has been an unpredictable year for every single one of us, so this may be your chance for a reflective reset.
Vision boards are a trendy, yet effective tool that I love to create at the beginning of the year to attach a group of images, words and overall vibe to help manifest my desires for that specific year.
On my vision board for 2020 I had inspiration for interior design for moving into a home after being in an apartment for years, traveling with my partner of 6 years, putting my health at the forefront with diet & exercise, immersing myself in my yoga & meditation practices, holding space for authentic connections for like-minded women through ceremony, an abundant bridal season with my makeup artistry team and thriving in my online coaching business.
And then Covid-19 happened.
My desire to move into my dream home was put on hold. I realized I was no longer passionate about makeup artistry after 6 years in the industry, along with the extreme post-Covid health standards overwhelming me. The shutdown no longer allowed me to hold women’s events in person. And, my partner kept expressing he was afraid to travel, make our move, and we kept not seeing eye-to-eye with what we want for our futures, and I had enough. I told him I wanted us to work on our relationship and seek counseling for our growth individually and together.
I quit doing makeup all together, I almost left my partner and moved back to my hometown, and I felt so defeated when trying to attract my home I felt I deserved.
So here’s the magic question, what happens when the things on your vision board no longer come true?
Thank you for reading this real & raw post and I hope that it was helpful for you. Wishing you a beautiful second half of 2020!
