The quick and dirty: I spent the last 8 days pushing the envelope. Really stretching what I'm comfortable with and what I can pull off. Now, time to pull it back, begin the pulse inward, create that vacuum and be prepared to fill it with conscious choices and positive movement on the next expansion.
The coming 8 days will be an exercise in focus, an energetic cleanse of sorts, to get myself back on track and find my middle ground. I'm so grateful that I've taken the time to build a practice that absorbs the ups and downs of life and gives me a place of stability to work from when the pendulum swings wide.
