We all crave deeper connection – but how do we get it right now?
This past weekend I found myself feeling a bit out of sorts, in spite of engaging in my usual self- care practices. So I took a beat and I thought…what would feel nourishing to me right now?
Here is what I identified.
Like a lot of you, I've been working from home a long side my family. I've been pretty disciplined and focused as I work on my projects, while that feels good to get things accomplished - I am craving a sense of fulfillment that comes from deep connection.
Connection that truly nourishes comes in many forms, so I'm sharing my FAVE FOUR!
FOUR WAYS FOR NOURISHING CONNECTION
I love to be creative! It feels so good to be in that space of flow and trust. For me it's about connecting with my heart and expressing whatever desires want to come forward. My go to joyful expressions are through music & song, baking, wool crafts like needle felting, sewing and writing.
WHAT ABOUT YOU..........WHAT PUTS YOU IN JOY AND FLOW?
I really miss my soulful girlfriend time!!! I think this is about being seen and deeply heard. Having trials and joys be received by another is everything! Holding space for each other is such a gift! Getting heart to heart feels so nourishing….plus lots of laughter and crying! My two favorite emotional experiences – offering up the best releases from our burdens!
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO DEEPLY CONNECT WITH RIGHT NOW.....?
A HIGHER SOURCE
A higher source is personal - so however you define it. For me it's about connecting with God and my soul aka my true self. When I connect deeply with source - I feel calm, often inspired, definitely renewed and nourished! I do this through 10 – 20 minutes of stillness through meditation. When you really need to let it all go; the worries, fears and especially our 'to do' lists – surrender is the way! Take some deep breaths and let each troublesome thought go on your exhale! Repeat as much as you need and often! Feel the peace!
TRUST YOUR HIGHER SOURCE TO DO THE HEAVY LIFTING!
You know - loving yourself is a thing! I am not saying it's easy, but it's really necessary to learn and practice in order to live your life feeling whole and to the fullest expression of you. It’s hard to love your life when you don’t love you. I would bet you’ve found it easy to love the good stuff about yourself – but what about the messy ''work in process" stuff? This is who you are too. And in order for it to heal – you got to love it too!
