Almost like clockwork, a week or two after the sugar-soaked Halloween stretch, I get an incredible urge to purge and cleanse … does that happen to you, too?
I start going through closets, organizing cabinets, sipping on detox tea, and eating crazy amounts of garlic and greens. For me it’s a regular pattern once the Fall settles in and the hectic winter holiday stretch begins:
This ping-pong between indulging on high sugar foods and over-stuffed schedules… to a bottoming out and frantic attempt at bringing myself back to center by clearing everything off my plate.
This year, I’ve been thinking about that pattern and what’s underneath it all.
Because what I really want to experience in the next couple months is a deeper connection to my family and a deeper connection with my spirit.
And while I know caring for my body and my home and my schedule are important parts of that bigger picture…what often gets left behind is caring for my heart.
And making space in my heart for more meaning, more light, more joy.
So this year, I wanted to create a new offering for this community. I call it the Gratitude Cleanse: 7 Days of Quiet for the Soul.
For 7 days leading up to Thanksgiving (or whenever you choose to join!) … I’ll be sharing a short guided meditation (10 minutes) helping us reflect and open up to deeper levels of gratitude in our hearts.
It’s a no-cost offering, full of love and possibility.
Fall is a natural time of preparation and transition. Intuitively, we are meant to prepare ourselves for the winter months ahead.
I want to experience these coming months in an intentional way — not by the standard default of feeling rushed and stressed.
I’m hoping this time committed to anchored quiet will make way for more presence, meaning and joy to take root, and I’d love for you to join me.
Here’s what you’ll get:
1| Instant Access
When you sign up, you’ll get instant access to the full library of the Gratitude Cleanse meditations – these are for you to use as much as you’d like.
2| Daily Texts (optional)
If you are like me, your inbox is pretty noisy.
Even information and resources I truly want get lost in the mix. And if I’m honest, calm and peaceful is not the feeling I get when wading through emails.
So I’ve decided to offer the option (which is completely optional) to receive a daily text from me for 7 days with a short message and direct link to a new Gratitude Cleanse meditation audio.
If I’m honest, even the littlest barriers can keep me from spending some much needed quiet time in my life.
And the process of opening my email and clicking over to a webpage and then downloading an audio sometimes is enough for me just not to do it.
But getting a text every morning with the direct link to the audio so I can just hit play– that I can do– and most likely WILL do much more often.
So I wanted to give this as an option to those who’d like this kind of support for the week! If you want the texts- include your cell number on the sign up form…if not, just leave it blank! (You’ll still get the Welcome Email with the full library of audios available immediately!)
3| Encouragement and My Favorite Tips
Finally, I have a few additional tips that help me most when I need to re-establish more regular quiet time in my life and open myself up to having gratitude more deeply rooted in my life. Over the next week I’ll be sending those tips and tools along too.
Sending you much love,
p.s. This is a no-cost offering, but I only want to send you the guided meditations if you want them- so please click through here to sign up.
