Growtherapy: Child & Adolescent Mental Health & Wellbeing

It's okay to make mistakes.

It's something we say a lot to kids and young people, especially in schools, but saying it and living it or showing it through our actions are two very different things.

What could we change or improve in how we respond to children and young people to action the words "mistakes are okay"? What could we change or improve in our systems and practices to deeply embed the sense that mistakes are okay? That mistakes are opportunities for growth and learning? Can we be brave enough to model this by acknowledging our own mistakes and our own struggles with making mistakes?

I'm putting my hand up here as a perfectionist who still struggles with making mistakes - I'm getting there though. These days I can mess up without crying, although it still takes a lot of self-talk and reframing to feel okay. How about you? Is it something you struggle with? What helps you to remember that it's okay to make mistakes?

The awesome illustration is from Elise Gravel who has lots of other awesome goodies like this at http://elisegravel.combe

There's nothing wrong with asking for help when you need it. It's definitely not a sign of weakness, but bravery. If you can't do it alone, ask for help and there will always be people to help you.

Ask for help and offer help and support to the ones who need it. This will help you connect with people on a much deeper level, more than you realize.

Winter Solstice ❄️ Altar Tutorial ❄

Good Morning Witches and Blessed Be!!

Saturday's magic is for sowing seeds for our future. A great way to help these seeds grow or manifest is to create a focal point for your intentions.

Check out my new YouTube video that walks you through some winter crafts and Winter Altar.

It's best to make our winter altar as close to the Solstice as possible to harness the energy of the shifting season. Going from the hustle and bustle of the Autumn season to a slow and steady pace of winter.

Don't forget Monday kicks off the 12 days of Yule Instagram series. I'll have a few special guests and share stories/ fables and rituals to help you through the longest nights of the year. I'll be live every day at 11 am EDT until Jan 1st! I hope you'll grab your coziest blanket, favorite cuppa and join me for the 12 days of Yule.

Sit and Sip a while as Karena from The Witch's Inn teaches you how to build a winters altar and makes some holiday crafts. About Karena Let me introduce myse...

Compassionate Alternatives to New Year's Resolutions

“I believe in setting ourselves up for success and recognizing that we are enough now while striving for growth and joy. I’m also all for saying goodbye to old school resolutions that don’t serve us and can negatively impact our mental health. Instead of the standard New Year’s resolutions try one of these ideas.”

This year let's ring in 2021 with self-acceptance by using one of these compassionate alternatives to New Year's Resolutions.

You still have time to make your New Moon Intentions.

What are you calling in this lunar cycle?

Have you made your new moon intentions yet?

As you cast out your intentions for the new moon, throw anything and everything that's no longer serving you into the fire.

Close your eyes, taking a moment to think about the stories, experiences, and patterns that are keeping you from connecting with your higher self and destiny.

As you release these narratives into the fire offer them gratitude and forgiveness. Feel yourself breaking free. When you open your eyes, notice the fire dancing. This is your soul, ready to dance with the cycles of life. You are transformed. Know this in your bones.

So Mote It Be

Good morning! Don't forget to spend a few minutes with yourself today, Amelia.
Hey Loves Karena from The Witch's Inn here. I thought I'd post today's episode of SIt&Sip Awhiles. It's on the Solar Plexus and focuses on our self worth. Gently asking ourself where we can be open more. It's pretty groovy. Take a listen if you feel called 👯
In like a lion, out like a lamb. I don't know about how your March is starting but here its clear skies and bright sunshine. Blessed March everyone. I had forgotten my sister (@23210erica) gifted me affirmation cards made by @thirtyone. "The Next Chapter of Your Life has Yet to Be Written". @cindymmonroe. Such an appropriate card for the beginning of the month. As well as an amazing reminder that every day we have an opportunity to write another chapter of our lives. March brings the turning of the wheel back to its birthing stage, Spring. Soon we will be able to see tiny buds starting to poke their way out to soak up the Sun and say Hello!. This month to honour that blooming I am offering Magickal Mentoring at a special price of $125 (reg. 175). During this three hour session, we will work with tarot, energy clearing techniques as well as get personal with how you want to expand your magick. Sessions committed to will be entered to win a Moonology Oracle deck and Moonology book. Winner will be announced April 1st, no fooling hehe. Click the FB link to connect and book your session or you can DM me. Have an amazing Sunday and an even better March. Blessed Be #inlikealion #outlikealamb #moonology #wheeloftheyear #nextchapter #springiscoming #magickalmentoring #intention #thewitchinn #hamont @ Hamilton, Ontario
Chakra Week. When talking about the chakra system we often hear how it's out of balance but not how to work with it on a daily basis to activate the system and individual chakras to utilize their intent for lifes magickal moments. During this week learn practical ways to work with and connect to your Chakra system. Join me Sunday March 8th to kick off the week with a Live Chakra meditation and distance Reiki healing at 8pm est. over on The Witch's Inn page. Sign up to receive daily emails for Chakra Week through The Witch's Inn mailing list "What's Brewing". https://m.facebook.com/events/188418252466777?sfnsn=mo Blessed Be #chakra #chakrasystem #whatsbrewing #practicalmagic #magickalmoments #intent #intention #manifesting #align #thewitchinn #hamont
This Saturday February 8/9th we have our Full Moon! The full moon in fire sign of Leo. Leo is represented by the Lion! This moon is asking you to be like the huntress of the lion pride. Take your time to put yourself in the right position to take control of your goals or pray. Take this weekend to work your personal growth and development. Sowing The Seeds Of Change Typically this spell should be done on the new moon, however, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use this spell in such a magical month (to be). Head to your local Seedy Saturday or green house to grab some seeds you'd like to see in your garden this year. On Feb 8 2020, the night of the Full Moon in Leo, draw a square in your yard, or dirt (window box or planter) that will hold the seeds. To do this find a "wand" or stick found in nature during a walk. Each corner will need a candle and special stone ( Small Crystal chips work best geared towards your intention). If you are using many small planters arrange them in a square and place the candles and crystals in the 4 corners. Green Candles / Crystals for Prosperity & Growth Yellow Candles/ Crystals for Happiness White Candles/ Crystals for Clear Thinking & Inspiration *Experiment with different Coloured Candles and Crystals that feel right for you Write down your intentions. Light The Candles while your reading your intentions. Push the seeds in the dirt with your finger and tap the seed with your wand while saying; "With loving intention I see my intentions grow. I am grateful to Mother Earth for nourishing me, while I nourish her. Thank You ( Angels, Universe, Higher Power) for helping me renew. " So Mote it Be Repeat with each seed as you push it in and tap with your wand. As you care and water your garden think of these little seedlings as yourself growing and being nurtured. When the time is right, plant your intentions outside. DM or use the Booking Link to set up your #fullmoon reading/ritual work. Message The Witch's Inn to book an appointment. Each 1♡1 Ritual Work booked and committed to are entered into a draw for a chance to win the Moonology Deck and Book by Yasmin Boland. *Spell structured and based on New Moon Spell from "The Book of Kitchen Witchery", By Cerridwen Greenleaf. AMAZING BOOK!!!

Hello Beauties!!! I swear I'm a head of the game or connecting with the flow of this practice because yesterday I did a post about manifesting and today he talks about it lol anyways... This one is great. Anyone else finding working in your solar pelux is bringing up some raw feelings? I'm not used to living in my joy. I don't get the sense my fire is burning me though. I get the sense my firenis burning away old habits that kept me there. And that can be tiring. The winter blues (or SAD) are setting in a bit, and with my chronic depression I need to becareful not to change too much at once or I can trigger it a relapse in my recovery. So this lesson today was a great reminder. Here's how I prevent burning out (or up); ❤ I am gentle with myself. I ask if this is an outside pressure or a pressure I'm putting on myself. From that I... ❤I evaluate if I have put to much on my plate, and get honest with my inner feeling around situations, are my boundries being stretched. ❤I sleep, rest or take part in self care. I have a nap most days to rest, and I'm aware I sleep later in the winter, adjusting my schedule accordingly. ❤I continue to incorporate a Daily Spiritual Practice. It fills my cup and also gives me the room to ask those hard questions. ❤ I get outside. The sun still shines even through the clouds. So I sit outside for 5 mins everyday to ground myself and help my (inner) flowers bloom. On very cold days I sit by a window and work. I'll be watching this a few times today as I feel there is a lot if great info that can be heard. Ihope you enjoy 🧡🕯
You are not Alone! Even when you are "alone" you have a community of Angels standing behind you waiting to assist you . All you need to do is ask. I am in constant communication with my Angels and past loved ones these days. I feel more supported and grounded when I communicate with them and allow them to guide my day. I also have a greater sense of where I am meant to put my energy. If you struggle in this area, I can assist through one on one ritual work. We dig deep into whats holding you back and create a loving space in which for you to explore that energy. Individual ritual work takes 2 to 3 hours of one on one time. Normally the cost is $150, this month I'm offering PWYC. Booking link in Bio or DM me for more info. The Witch's Inn 🧡🕯 #hamont #reiki #tarot #ritual #ritualwork @ Hamilton, Ontario
