little howls

the moon went big, went all out for her first appearance of the year. that’s her path, doesn’t mean it’s yours. 

it could be your time to be the lone wolf. that doesn’t mean lonely, to me it means doing more of the behind the scenes magic. it means checking in with where you’re at. it means going deep into your intentions, dreams, the things you’ve always wanted to have time to do. it’s a time for deep breaths, long stretches and more tea. 

if it’s not time for a full howl, where are your little howls? the small moments only for you to show yourself some gratitude? i’m thinking flowers on the kitchen table. scheduling a doctors or dentist appointment that you’ve been putting off to show yourself you got yourself. i’m thinking reading that book instead of the instagram scroll. bold lipstick on a sunday when you’re staying in.

take the next moment you find yourself alone, maybe it’s in the car. or the second you step into your apartment. it may have to be the bathroom and i get that. 

/////

when you’re in that space, that moment for yourself, take a deep breath in. let it go. take as many of those as you need to. 

/////

ask yourself: what can i celebrate this week that’s just for me and no one will ever have to know? if you’ve got an idea hold that in your heart for a moment. put your hands over your heart to keep that idea safe. breath deeply as you please. 

/////

what would it feel like after you complete your intention? would you feel lighter? would you feel warm? would you have butterflies in your stomach? whatever it is, wherever you feel it, let this be your guide. know this gift is coming and you’re going to make it happen. 

/////

now throw your head back and give a little howl! it can be silent but you better do this part. this is how you put your intention out into your universe. 

/////

the moon has showed you what it can look like, now it’s your turn to find your ritual, your moment. your little howl. 


when we practice little howls, we won’t be afraid when the time comes to go all out, full form, the most beautiful wolf song we have ever heard.
