What energy do you want to bring into this year + other Sanctuary Tips and Tricks

Sanctuary Tips and Tricks with Helen Joy Butler

Each week on FACEBOOK I share #TipTuesday. In these posts I share practical advice on everything Sanctuary – including practical, emotional and spiritual advice, to help you move forward with Sanctuary in your home, body and life.

These posts are often quite long and I thought they’d be great to share here with you in case you missed them. And let’s face it, things move rather quickly on social media and you may not have seen them fly by!

So let’s jump in!

Tip 1 – Step away from technology!

There is *so* much going on in your world that could bring you JOY – what are you waiting for?

By disconnecting with technology and what the marketers tell you you need, you will reconnect with who you truly are and live a much happier life.

Tip 2 – What energy do you want to bring into next year?

I know most people are busy with Christmas shopping, planning, organising right about now, but I’d like to invite you to look past that into next year and ask yourself what you want it to look like.
No I’m not asking you what your New Year’s Resolutions are (I’m not a fan of them).
I’m asking you – What energy do you want to show up as in the world? and What energy do you want to come back to you throughout the year?
I wrote a blog post early this year saying that I wasn’t going to choose a word for the year – instead I chose three traits / energies that I wanted to gift to others and receive myself throughout 2018.
The idea was that by showing up with the traits / energies I wanted I would attract those energies to me. And I have to admit that from what I’ve observed that’s been the case!
So I’m already thinking about the traits / energies I want to gift and receive in 2019. I haven’t quite landed on them yet – but in 2018 I chose being kind, generous and thoughtful. They’re a good start for any intention I’d say!
I’m thinking of creating an online course on this early next year, to help you move through your 2019 with grace, focus and clarity – with traits / energies you WANT to gift and receive, not those you don’t. What do you think? YES or NO?

Tip 3 – Who can you hang out with this week that will make your life a little easier?

Work Picnic - The Photo Forest - Helen Joy Butler
On Sunday Mr nearly-13 decided he wanted to go to the large shopping centre near us. He had been given some money the day before for Christmas and I think it was burning a hole in his pocket! He had his eyes set on a particular thing at a certain store and he wanted it NOW!
Normally I’d say no. Going to a large shopping centre is NOT what I call fun at the best of times, let alone the second last Sunday before Christmas!
But off we went – with Hubby in tow as well – managing to get a park within the first few minutes of arriving.
{I took this as a sign that we WERE meant to be there!}
When we arrived Mr nearly-13 went one way and Hubby and I went the other. After about half an hour we met up, went to a few shops together and drove home.
And that’s when it hit me.
There were STACKS of people in the shopping centre BUT I felt like we had floated through the entire driving / parking / shopping / coming home experience unfazed.
We even had time to look at the gorgeous puppies in the pet store (and of course, wanted to bring them all home!).
So – what does this story have to do with today’s tip?
By hanging out with people you WANT to hang out with, life feels so much easier – EVEN IF it is shopping in one of the largest shopping centres in your city the second last Sunday before Christmas!
So my Q today is – Who’s on your list? Who makes your life feel a little easier, simply by being in it?
