IN THE HEART OF THE LIGHT | POETRY OF AWAKENING by ASHLEY LORD
For most of us, the past year has brought our lives into a complete shift. Some of us lost our routines and in-person connections. Important plans and milestones that we thought would be a part of this season may have been canceled. But as the world around us changes to a new normal, it may sometimes feel that we’re grappling with the uncertainty that can be emotionally draining. It’s easy to lose our sense of self when many of the activities we’ve once enjoyed are becoming more difficult to access or do.
For this reason, recognizing daily simple joys, finding small adventures to embark on, and prioritizing self-care is more important than ever. Think about self-care as one of the tools/energies that can bring back your sense of self. Making time for yourself are both the lock and key. When you find ways to nurture your physical and emotional well-being, you help your body and brain respond in a way that is helpful and healing — giving it permission to go full steam ahead with all the things your mind & body can do to help you cope. Prioritizing ourselves is always important, but it’s particularly so right now when so much in our lives is out of our control. It’s cliche but true– “you really can’t pour from an empty cup.”
Whether you’re struggling to manage to do everything you love, or you’re simply feeling stretched too thin, this month’s Happiness Boosting Activity will give you a dose of love, excitement, and adventure that is much needed right now. A divine, 208-page book of potent poetic medicine for the soul, “In the Heart of the Light; Poetry of Awakening”, takes you on a journey beyond your mind, dives you deep into the heart, and doesn’t quite return you the same. From poet & healer Ashley Lord (@loveashleylord), her soulful collection of poetic medicine will guide you through a soft and graceful lens and into a beautiful, powerful world of healing, spirituality & self-love. It authentically expresses raw, truthful energy — immersing you in the magic of heartache and healing. Serving as pure light to uplift, nourish and guide you towards befriending your own wise heart, it reveals the potency found through the journey of reclaiming your wisdom, peace & dreams. As part of a special collaboration with TheraBox, there are little self-care activities sprinkled throughout the book for you to try. And until the end of May, Ashley is gifting you FREE ACCESS into her Heart Medicine Sanctuary; an inspired virtual space to help you connect to your heart whispers, clear energy blocks, and elevate your light.
