Good morning – new day

I am grateful, I am blessed. I am worthy and I am good enough. I am comfortable feeling emotions, and every moment is an opportunity to play. I am abundant and attract the opportunities. I am safe, I am strong and I am committed.

These are just a few mantras that have filled my days, and which have motivated me to see life with a renewed love and appreciation. The RA still gets me on my knees on any given day, but the scale has tipped and and the tolerable, better days have outweighed the miserable, crippling ones.

While the Pluto retrograde, could be a time to bring feelings of angst and major life transitions, it has been a time of spiritual growth for me. A time to put into perspective where I really want to go in life, and it’s been long overdue. So for me it is also a time most appreciated to make changes and to tap into the support and powers of changing my stars.

Along the way I had to learn that it’s ok to not have all the answers, and not to have it all planned out safely. It is work in progress and definitely takes getting used to. I had to trust that some of the mysteries are found in not knowing it all. I learned to let go of control, to surrender and believe that the universe has a plan for me. Not always by choice, but by being forced to it at times. It’s a beautiful thing if you can see it as a positive and don’t feel like life is just giving you the short end of the stick. Not fighting resistance is actually the biggest lesson and the best you can do for yourself because life will always happen, whether you want it to or not, whether you are ready or not. It has been a humbling, freeing and amazing experience. Not without the occasional scare, but one that brought further awareness and the ability to be led.

Through it all I have found a new appreciation, a new love for every day. For all the big and little things that happen and fill my heart. I know there is another reason for it which I will discuss in a separate post. For today, I leave you and want to share a few morning rituals that might help you welcome the day with love and appreciation. Just give it a try…

  • Start your day dancing as if no one is watching for five minutes
  • Cleanse and refresh – drink a glass of lemon water, take a shower or bath
  • Attract abundance – write down at least three things you are grateful for
  • Connect mindfully – inhale and exhale seven deep breaths
  • Ignite clarity and creativity – burn candles, incense, or oils
  • Self heal – meditate for 10-30 minutes
  • Open to change – engage your body with yoga, dance, or exercise
  • Manifestation – write down your goals and intentions for the day
  • Nurture self love – walk in nature or write down a brief letter to yourself

Just start small and pick one or two things that fit into your schedule. Commit to doing it every day until a habit is formed. Once this has happened and becomes second nature, you can pick another thing and build on your foundation already in place.

Don’t forget to slow down enough to feel the difference and notice the changes. Keep a journal and write it down.

Wishing you the best, and would love to hear your results or if you already have your own mourning rituals.

Namaste 🙏🏼

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. my morning meditation ritual is so important to me! There have been times when I have strayed from it, and I know for sure the difference it makes in my daily life. Without connecting to that energy, I feel lost and depleted. When I stay with it, the moments of peace grow longer each day. I subscribe wholeheartedly to your sentiment! Thanks for sharing it with the world. 🙂

    1. I know exactly what you mean and staying from it never helps, but it’s life isn’t it. The point is you have found this outlet and have realized it’s powers. It’s more than most have. Best wishes for you. Hugs
