In the quiet, in the right container, you will find yourselfNov 15, 2023
Have you ever felt lost in the chaos of life? The constant demands of work, family, and responsibilities can drown out our inner voice. We get so caught up in the noise of the world that we forget to listen to ourselves. But deep down, we know there is more to life than just going through the motions. We long for a sense of purpose, fulfillment, and alignment.
As women wearing multiple hats - moms, entrepreneurs, professionals - it's easy to lose sight of our own needs amidst the hustle and bustle. We prioritize everyone else's well-being before our own and end up feeling burnt out and disconnected from ourselves. But what if I told you that within the quiet moments lies a profound opportunity for self-discovery and growth?
Quieting the Mind: Finding Stillness Amidst Chaos
In this fast-paced world, finding stillness may seem like an impossible task. But let me share with you my recent experience on a wellness retreat in Costa Rica. I went there seeking relaxation and peace of mind but ended up discovering something far more powerful - a safe container for self-exploration.
Led by Ashleigh and Lynne, this retreat provided a sanctuary where women came together to create space for each other's true selves to emerge. It was not about being who we thought we should be or who others expected us to be; it was about embracing our authentic selves (all of her).
The Power of Safe Containers
A safe container is like a cocoon that allows us to shed old layers and transform into our most genuine selves. Within this supportive environment, I was able to delve deeper into my own being and uncover new aspects of myself that had yet to be explored.
In this safe container:
- We were encouraged to silence our inner critic and embrace self-love.
- We shared our vulnerabilities without fear of judgment.
- We engaged in introspective practices like meditation, breath work and journalling
- We let go of societal expectations and embraced our unique paths.
- We celebrated each other's growth and authenticity (through many tears).
Discovering the Authentic You
In those moments of quiet reflection, I discovered a piece of myself that I had never fully met. It was a powerful feeling, to connect with my true essence without the distractions of everyday life. The more I allowed myself to be still, the more I understood what truly makes me, well, me.
But it wasn't just about my own journey. Witnessing others on their path towards self-discovery was equally inspiring. We cheered each other on as we shed beliefs that no longer served us, stepped into our power and vulnerabilities, and embraced our authenticity. It was a reminder that we are not alone in this journey - that we are all searching for our true selves.
Embracing Alignment: Your Path to Fulfillment
In the hustle and bustle of life, it's easy to lose sight of what truly matters to us. But when we create space for stillness and self-reflection, we open ourselves up to a world of possibilities. Aligning our actions with our core values allows us to live a life of purpose and fulfillment.
So, my dear friend, I invite you to embrace the quiet within you. Find your own safe container - whether it's through meditation, therapy, or joining our Propeller Experience community. Take the time to listen to your heart's whispers and honour you.
Remember: The journey inward is not always easy, but it is where you will discover your truest self – a woman empowered by her own inner light!
In this chaotic world, finding yourself may seem like an elusive quest. But within the quiet moments lies an opportunity for self-discovery and growth that can lead you towards alignment and fulfillment.
Take that leap – quiet the noise, find the right container, and embark on a journey of inner work and self-love. Your truest self is waiting to be discovered! She is there and she is FREAKING amazing. You will love her.
