Each lesson life offers us can lead us further down the road to richer self-awareness and better living if we choose to listen, integrate the learning and accept the journey as an essential part of reaching our final destination. But do most of us take the time to see the ariel view- the full picture of what is really unfolding? Many say there is no time for that: it is hard enough keeping up with the day to day. Having set up The Essential Feminine ® Company over the past 2 years I recently felt the need to slow down and have a sabbatical – a regrouping. I took time over the past 8 months to journey to Boulder Colorado – at the foothills of the great Rocky Mountains. Nature has always been a great teacher for me and during this break it has been the most amazing gift. It taught me so much. I learned that I need to take time to reflect- daily on what is most important to me and where on each day- I need to place my precious life force and attention. I learned that I hear more when I am still and I learned that the richness of family and close friends is something I cannot live without.
The biggest lesson of all has been around the daily practices and care that I allow myself- when I am going slow enough to listen I can hear what I really need. For me it is essential to have a daily rhythm and balance or I spin out. I guess you could say that sometimes when we create our dreams we experience a birth and after birth even though we adore our baby – we still need to come home to ourselves. So what does all this mean to you and your life? I think you have to answer this question for yourself .Here are a few questions I had to ask myself to put many of the pieces back together in my own life.
- Where are things working for me now?
- What needs to change or be different?
- How well am I taking care of my self- body mind and spirit?
- Does the work I do satisfy me and align with my values?
- What is next for me?
- What is most important to me right now- is it in my life?
The time I took in nature and contemplation – gave me the reflection time I need to write a course that reflects an amazing journey- the one I have just completed myself- I call it the Elixir Course. If it resonates with you let me know- I would like to take you on this journey with a small group of women.
