7 Tips For a Great Sunday

Hola Honey!

I’m back on the mainland and ready to get home to do my Sunday routine to prep for the week. I love using this day to really get clear about how I want my week to go, what I’d like to complete.

Do you have a Sunday routine?

I have decided to list a few of my non-negotiables for Sunday and perhaps you may be inspired by them (or nah, and that’s cool too lol).

  1. LAUNDRY – I know this may be a tough one, it used to be painstaking for me.. I had no issues with washing and drying but putting away was my nemesis. Now, I simply fold things as SOON as they come out of the dryer. I noticed that my mood and overall energetic vibration is a lot higher when I don’t have piles of clothes around my home and all my things are neatly put away and available when I need them. Don’t forget to wash your bedding!
  2. REFRIGERATOR – Admittedly I am a recovering OCD neat freak (my children would say I never recovered) but I cannot stand to have clutter in my fridge. That leftover dish from Tuesday? Yep! Time to let it go. I like to go through my fridge on Sundays and get rid of any old produce that wasn’t used, empty out the tupperware and throw out any expired food. It just FEELS better and it creates more space for more yummy and nourishing foods to replace the old.
  3. JOURNALING – Setting 1-3 primary goals for the upcoming week is a great way to actually accomplish them. They may not be things that can be done in one sitting, and thats ok! If you’re anything like me, START WITH ONE! I often sit down to make a “little list” of things to do and wind up with 3 pages that overwhelm me and then cause me to procrastinate. A full brain dump is helpful sometimes, but for this Sunday let’s focus on 1 (3 maximum).
  4. TAKE A BATH and/or STEAM – Sunday is really a day for resting, although the things I’ve listed up until this point may feel like “work”, it’s important to keep in mind that they are adding to your PEACE of mind and can also be considered meditative. I like to tidy up with some really great music that makes me feel good blasting from my bluetooth speakers. Baths are my GO TO for relaxation. There’s something about being submerged in hot water and herbs that allows stress to melt away.
  5. CLOTHES – I have two young children who don’t love waking up in the morning. Anything I can do to lighten the load for them and me in the morning is well worth it. I lay their outfits out for Monday morning as well as my own.
  6. FOOD – Having meals planned for at least Monday and Tuesday is a good way to cut down on stress and also to save money by not swinging by for crap on the way home.
  7. PRAYER – I love praying everyday but Sunday is a day that I can really take my time to get into contemplating all the people and circumstances and dynamics I want to send love to.

Welp! I hope this was helpful.

Peace Is Right Here, Right Now

know that sometimes peace can feel like a distant fantasy with mounting task lists and scattered obligations between career, family, school, business etc.

As parents, friends, daughters, sons, lovers and professionals we wear many hats and like most human beings, we want to be “successful” at our many relationships, endeavors and pursuits.

What I’ve learned is that success is an inside job. Success is being at peace, regardless of life’s circumstances. It’s being content and grateful with your CURRENT physique, your current income, your current position, status and family dynamic.

I used to be caught up in the exterior appearance of things. I put a lot of stock in the way (I thought) I was perceived by others. I realized that my own judgment of myself was what I assumed others were thinking of me. The truth is that no one really cares that much about you and what you are or aren’t doing. Using other people’s feelings, reactions or responses to the ways in which we choose to live our lives is actually an excuse and excuses are based in fear.

I chose to BELIEVE that a different experience was possible. It didn’t happen overnight, but I slowly began to be intentional about living in MY OWN authentic truth. I realized that when I did that, it inspired others. The very people I thought I would hurt, I was actually helping. The fear of offending became a love of empowering.

Steaming was one of those things that seemed weird to others.. yet I knew that it was going to heal me. I didn’t realize that it went beyond the physical when I discovered and began incorporating it into my self care routine.

I know better now.

Steaming allowed me to connect deeply with my own heart. I realized that my womb and my heart are in fact connected, intricately.

We have created the “I Love My Womb” Bundle which is designed to provide plant based products which care for your womb and your heart. This Gift Box includes access to the Time Is On Our Side course which assists in getting clear about our visions, desires and goals and how to move towards accomplishing them in the least amount of time possible.

Sending much love, peace and bliss to you.

Enjoying My Manifestations

Nipsey Reminds Me…

Wow.

This week has been emotional for me. Typically I do not comment on any social happenings but this has rocked me. The death of Ermias Ashghedom (better known as Nipsey Hussle) has shaken the world. If you didn’t know who he was before, you likely know who he is now. If you don’t, I’ll allow you the opportunity of doing your own research.

I want to take a moment to share the inspiration that this loss has revitalized within me. I too, have suffered great personal loss through death. On November 11, 2006, my eldest son’s father, Michael Adams, was brutally murdered at the age of 27, when our son was just 8 years old. Immediately following these losses I questioned GOD. Admittedly, I was angry, hurt, sad, shocked. I even felt that I was with God. I didn’t get it yet. I didn’t understand. I didn’t realize that I was being called to appreciate and cherish the times I had with my loved ones. I was focused on the fact that I no longer had them.

12 years later (a relatively short timeframe)  I lost my older brother (best friend and confidante) Michael Porter to terminal pancreatic cancer on January 8, 2015. I was a bit further into my spiritual evolution so I was able to grasp the gratitude in even being able to know and experience him, but, I was still sad and hurt that this person whom I had grown used to communicating with on a daily basis was no longer here with me on the physical plane.

In retrospect, it took me several years and experiences later to really understand and realize the great blessing and gift I had been given in the actual experience of being able to love so deeply. The magnitude of my pain matched the magnitude of love that I had been capable of feeling. What a blessing! What an incredible and wonderful experience to have been able to have.

The celebration ceremony that was held in Nipsey’s honor was humbling, breath-taking and so wonderful. His mother was such a beacon of perspective alchemy for the world to witness. I was so overjoyed to watch and listen to the very intentional and whole perspective she expressed. We are divine, we are whole. YES GOD!!!!! The energetic shift that Nipsey’s ascension has created is so beautiful to watch. It also now holds humanity to a higher standard. Although I felt triggered initially about my loss, it has fostered a much greater appreciation and calling to truly walk unapologetically in my purpose.

Hoping it’s had similar effects on you.

With So Much Love,

Megan Mac
