Episode 10 - Contract To Expand

December 19, 2019

This solstice Saturday we are celebrating Lake Effect Co’s 3 year anniversary, and while I had an idea of what I wanted to do with this podcast episode and this milestone, I'm actually going to talk about something totally different.

In last week’s episode when I shared all the events coming up, both in and out of the store, I knew that I was going to call upon all of my effort to make it through. That wasn't untrue and I've been a bit beat up as a result. It turns out Intentional December taught me that I actually need to be more intentional with my time - that I have a lot to learn about energy dynamics and how stuffing my calendar and mind (and not allowing a true contraction or clearing of what's happening in my headspace) doesn't lend well for expansion.

So, in this episode, I walk through my personal experience with contraction/expansion and my decision not to act until there is enough quiet and downtime to be sure it’s truly what I should be saying and doing. This episode I am sharing my contraction, my hard look within myself, so that I can return and expand with intention.

You know what you need. Expand and contract accordingly.

In this episode, I muse about:

  • How cold water helps us reset our systems when we are stressed and in a low vibrational state
  • Leaving intentional space for ourselves
  • Planning with intention instead of reacting with frantic and stressful energy
  • Allowing yourself to contract and look within yourself so that you can expand with intention 

You know what you need. Expand and contract accordingly.
