Self-Dates: Taking Time for Yourself
A visual meditation and Virtual outinG for you. Plus First Podcast!
Journey with me as I go out on a self-date. In this video vlog, which doubles as a visual meditation and virtual outing, I spend nourishing alone and explorative time at The Getty Museum in sunny Los Angeles. Taking time for ourselves is essential. It’s how we continually learn ourselves. It’s a great way to cultivate our inner-lives, inner-peace, and greater self-awareness and worth. And, it’s how we take our power back. Solitude is sacred!
Drop a comment below to let us know if you like this new style of vlogging. Your feedback helps us create more of what you’re loving. And, it helps us mix things up around here too! Yay!
Love you, so much! Relax, rest, and enjoy!
“Sometimes, you have to go off alone, to come back and be better. Solitude is sacred.”

Self-Dates: Taking time for Yourself
There are many reasons and times when being alone with yourself is cathartic, essential, necessary, and cleansing. Such as:
To process emotions, you're experiencing
To discharge heavy energy/s
To release emotional stress
To release what isn't yours vibrationally
To clear your mind
To seek and gain clarity
To listen to your inner voice
To connect to Higher Power
Refresh and reset your spirit, soul, mind, and vibrational field
Where are at least three places you can take yourself out on a self-date this summer ?
Things To Do Solo:
1. Volunteer time: go alone and spend a day away from your life and impact someone else's. What causes are you passionate about? Where/who can use your gifts. Volunteering is also a great way to learn new skills. A new craft in particular for me (although I wasn't alone) was learning to build a picket fence while volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. A whole picket fence, ya'll! The thing that stood out to me was that the process of building a fence felt like a meditation. It was the most relaxing deep physical labor! Who knew!?
2. Mother Nature: Let mother nature be your guide and companion. Nature is one of the most powerful, potent, and effective conduits available to us. Time spent in nature is soul medicine, it's cleansing, and most of the time it's free! Unless you're at a National Park or State Beach, whereas there 's a small fee to enter or park. These fees are contributions. They help with the upkeep of preserving these local and national natural spaces and treasures.
Go out and explore nature. Happy adventures to you! Don't litter.
3. Go to a sacred site or space: Spending time in sacred spaces alone is so very freeing. Without the company of someone else in your life present, you can allow your spirit and heart open up in profound ways that only alone and solitude time births. The good news is that The Most High and your divine guides are always with you.
Some of the other ways are:
Going to a garden
A favorite restaurant
Go check out a movie
Dropping in a new class
Hitting the road. Take a road trip
Other forms of travel
Use discernment and wisdom wherever you go. Stay mindful of your surroundings. Plan ahead. Leave a note with someone. Go have fun!
What are your intentions for taking time for yourself?
Go within. Listen. Where is your life and soul asking you to go?
Can you feel and sense with clarity where you’re being called to expand and vibrate higher through solitude?
Are there healthy boundaries in place to support your ‘me-time’?
If not, how will you set them and honor them?
What is your soul’s medicine this season? What’s nourishing you? What’s currently feeding your soul? Do more of that! Alone!
Where in your life are you feeling lead to be alone more often?
How will you honor the process?
