What changes when we fill our cup & give from the overflow rather than from our reserves?
My 28 years as a helping professional means I've had to be nurtured back from burnout more times than I care to admit! My truth is that putting self-nurture at the top of my list means I can show up more fully - both personally & professionally.
5 years ago I left a much cherished & long-tenured role as a group facilitator, yoga & meditation instructor after a bad injury. I realized that because I hadn't paid attention to the signs & nudges my body gave me to slow down & take better care, my vitality wasn't there & I fell.
Over the last 7 years of Body-Centered Coaching & Hakomi therapy training, I've formed a friendship with my body by listening more & more to what it has to say. Turning toward this long-neglected friend felt overwhelming at first, so I found playful ways to stay in tune with it. With the support of right-brain business genius Jennifer Lee of Artizen Coaching, I crafted tactile self-coaching tools from materials I had at hand and these TLC tools helped me slow things down to a more natural pace & made it easier for me to tune in, move forward or rest up with the good grace & perfect timing of Mother Nature herself :]
Through this process, the 'lens' I saw my own life through became less critical. I began to see myself with the awe & curiousity with which I generally experience the natural world - where each stage of growth, like seasons in the garden & forest - is valued, enjoyed & appreciated! This important principle of organicity helps me reframe my old care-taking ways each day, as it means I can trust that the difficulties we all experience are a natural part of each of our growth process. The supportive TLC pocket, desktop or group room coaching tools I use in my practice support individuals & groups through times of overwhelm or compassion fatigue, when we feel the most challenged.
If like me, you'd like to be able to ease back in the saddle a bit, reflect on [& give yourself a nod for] all that you've lived & use a more forgiving lens to feel kinder towards yourself - sign up to a cost-free online Fill Your Cup Video Series here.
Body-mind self-caoching methods are brilliant at liberating us from the grip of old, outdated stories to give us more free reign in our day-to-day. Rather than feeling stiff & stuck in knee-jerk reaction to challenges, we become wonderfully adaptable in the face of change. If better understanding your body tension patterns so they stop costing you precious time, energy or relationships makes sense - A Nurtured Life Focus session clears what's blocking your natural energy flow to replenish your reserves.
A Nurtured Life's TLC events & sessions offer tactile, self-coaching tools to contact a felt sense of the earth's support; improve energy flow in the body; orient to the inspiration of your space; move from heart center; find a delicate balance in connection, stay present to your purpose & rest in the comfort of spirit.
Each of these 7 elements serve as a valuable starting point towards a kinder relationship with ourselves. Each step in this direction widens the path toward a more nurtured world.
