Three Ways To Cultivate Your Inner G.O.A.T
Happy Winter Solstice! We are officially entering Capricorn season! 

 

Now if you have any Capricorn friends, you already know what this zodiac sign represents. Capricorn and its energy is one of the most resilient of the signs. There's no wonder why they embody the animal spirit of the goat: no matter what, they continue to climb the highest mountains and let everyone else figure out how they did it!
 
We can definitely learn to utilize this persevering energy that Capricorns naturally possess by using it to get our ish together! Because if you've been procrastinating on doing it all year, you can count on this season giving you the extra motivation to pull your own self up by your bootstraps. 
It's all about self-development, self-growth and self-love right now. Yup, you get a pass to be a little more selfish with yourself! 
Combined with the Winter Solstice, this season is an unstoppable one! On the surface, the Winter Solstice is considered the official first day of winter. It is the shortest day of the year, when the energy of light and dark is brought to the forefront simutaneously. When you dig a little deeper, you'll find out that the Winter Solstice may also trigger nostalgia, deeper reflection and the resurfacing of old emotions and feelings. This is because the energy of the Winter Solstice is encouraging us to go within; to withdraw from the outside world in order to tend to our inner world. As I mentioned in a previous post, it's time to take our cue from what nature is portraying to us. 
With the Winter Solstice coinciding with the Mercury Retrograde (a cosmic time when all things seem to get lost in translation, along with many electronic mishaps), we're being asked even more to go within and start the journey of course-correcting our paths so that we can be of better services to others. 
If you want to be the G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time), you have to first start by purging the old ways and things that no longer serve your greatest purpose to make way for your new desires. There are three ways to ensure that that happens! 

 

Take A Breather
When Mercury in Retrograde, you will notice a lot of bizarre breakdowns in technology. So what better time to unplug from social media to tune more into yourself, right? Starting off small by taking 5 minutes out of your day to start a meditation practice instead of scrolling on Facebook can make a significant difference in your day and general well-being. Doing simple breathing techniques as meditation, for example, helps to clear the mind, reduce stress and recirculate energy throughout the body.
Slowly inhale through the nose while counting up to 5 seconds, hold for 1 second, then exhale through the mouth slowly. 
 

 

 Write Away 

Another way to utilize this Winter Solstice energy in order to pour back into yourself during this season is to start journaling. Journaling is something that we all loved to do with ease when we were younger, but somewhere along the way stopped expressing ourselves. Getting back to this practice is a great way to tap into your emotions while also setting intentions for the things you wish to release and receive. 

Here's some journal prompts to get you started: 

"What did this year teach me about myself?"

What lessons did I receive from this year?" 

What old thoughts and feelings do I need to release before stepping into my new year?" 

 

Affirm & Manifest

To take your journaling practice up another notch, try to create daily affirmations that will keep you mind and heart focused on what you want, instead of what you don't want. Whenever you find yourself thinking or writing negatively, reframe it by writing affirmations that not only positively reinforce it, but also helps you stay in the present. 

Here's an example: 

"I'm never going to make enough money..I never have enough money to do what I want to do."

Positive reframing affirmation:

"I always have more than enough money and THEN some! I already have the money I want.. it's making its way to me right now!" 

From here, you can create your own daily ritual that will keep you on the right track. 

*Bonus!*

To add onto these practices, add some crystals into the mix. Some crystals that are perfect for this season include Bloodstone, Garnet, Hematite, Onyx & Galena. 

 

The energy of the Winter Solstice and Capricorn Season wants you to be prepared at all times. Knowing how to feed your desires by pouring into yourself with these three things will add fuel to the motivation you'll need for the upcoming year!
