    New Moon, New Beginnings

    Whew! Well Loves, this has been an interesting month, hey? We’re entering the New Moon phase, which is all about rest, introspection, and new beginnings. It has me wondering: •What does Rest look like for you right now? •What have you been learning about yourself in the past month? •What new beginnings are you preparing for? I’ll start:REST for me has been very much about allowing my body to recover from the first round of chemo. It’s looked like saying “No” or “Not Now” to everything that I can, instead of my usual recovering Type A habit of pushing myself…

    Summertime Self-Care Tips

    Michelle Lewis – The Blessings Butterfly   Do you have a more relaxed work schedule during the summer months? It’s a great time to look at your Self-Care routine and treat yourself to something beautiful. I was so grateful today for the flexibility to go enjoy some “beauty maintenance” (lash fill & mani-pedi!) before joining my sweetheart’s office dinner party tonight. Self-care is so much deeper than a spa day; it’s really about taking the time to restore what’s on your inside. So, what if you can’t take a day off or even a few hours? Give yourself 5, 10,…

    Rainy Day Morning Meditation

    On this rare rainy day, I thought I’d share a little stream of consciousness from my meditation this morning, edited to include punctuation. Rainfall is so rare here. I love the way it sounds and the way it smells. When it falls at night, I sleep so deeply and peacefully. In the quiet of morning, I love to open the window a bit and just… listen, pausing in gratitude for even just a few moments. Grateful that I have warmth, and shelter, and a hot cuppa in my hand. Recognizing the incredible privilege in these simple things. Remembering when I…

    A Samhain Blessing and A Meditation

    Michelle Lewis, The Blessings Butterfly A Samhain Blessing Samhain is an ancient, pre-Christian Celtic festival to celebrate the end of the summer, the final harvest before winter sets in. It is traditionally marked by bonfires, and corresponds with a time of honoring the spirits of the dead. Rituals may include a dancing, feasting, nature walks, ancestral altars, and/or a silent supper to remember loved ones who have passed beyond the veil of the living. For those in the Northern Hemisphere, October 31 marks the start of Samhain (which can be tricky to pronounce- “Sow [like cow] In” or “Soh Een”…

    New Moon Blessing

    A meditation for your New Moon rituals, to be a blessing on the Dark Moon. Breathe Deeply, slowly exhale. Relax your shoulders and your jaw, release your grasping hold on it all: the words unspoken, the painful rejections, the deafening screams, the critical eyes, the shaking fists, the white hot tears. Let all of the accusations and pointed words fall to the ground beside you. Release the need to be Right, the need to be Wrong. Just… Be. Feel yourself releasing the pain, the anger, the hurt, the sorrow, the guilt, the shame, the agony, the disbelief, the weight, the…

    I absolutely love this time of year! It’s a little bit slow, it’s a little more quiet and calm. There’s an energy of perfectly balanced gratitude & expectation that makes for an ideal meditation climate. Here’s my super simple Year End Meditation practice that I am happy to share with you.
