About the Episode

In this episode, Rachel reflects on the patterns and relationships that haven’t been serving her throughout her life. There is one common thread between them all: she played a role in the decision making. The pace of her life, the people she invited into it, and the work she focused on was ultimately decided by her. What if this is true for all of us? Are we are all actively playing a part in the things that don’t serve us in life?

As society slowly starts moving again, there is a lot for us to make sense of – but ultimately, we are in control. The truth is, we don’t have to continue being the same person we were pre-corona virus. We have the chance to implement changes around infrastructure, relationships, self-care, and mental health, and we can water the areas of our lives that we want to nourish and grow.

What changes do you want to make to align with everything that you truly desire? Have you noticed anything come up that is keeping you separated from your heart’s purpose? Are there areas of your life that you feel you are neglecting, or not having the hard conversation, or looking the other way?

This episode will remind you that if you want a different kind of life, now is the time. If you want to make a difference, start with caring for yourself, setting clear intentions and goals, and aligning with your deepest desires. You may notice that once you come into alignment, everything around you begins to flourish, too.

Key Takeaways

  • Sometimes we neglect the areas of our lives we want to have flourish. Contemplate on why this is! Are you avoiding a challenging conversation? Or is fear holding you back?
  • What do you need for your life to actually come into alignment with what you really want? Keep doing the practices that bring you to a place of knowing.
  • Define your intentions and goals for reintegrating into society as it opens back up. The rest of the year can reflect who you want to become.
  • Look to see what areas in your life that you have been tending to, and what areas you have been neglecting. See if you can redirect your focus so that your life is better aligned with your clear intentions and set boundaries when necessary.
