Tools to Create Inner Sanctuary on Your Path to A Nurtured Life
'Safety is not the absence of threat, but the presence of connection'
~ Stephen Porges
Expand your most cherished personal vision of what's possible into the world now..
Our dreams are nurtured from pure inspiration into shared vision & into full form. In much the same way, I think of our spirit as that inspiration and as we express whats exciting us, the spirit more fully inhabits the body. Think of the moment of anyones big win - watch those victory arms happen without time for thought - this particular expression, among so many others happens across cultures & through the ages. Letting our lives be infused with this natural expression of who we are inside is what we invite when we nurture spirit!
Whether you've taken the Nurture Wheel for a spin & landed in the Spirit element or simply chosen Spirit as a focal point for inviting TLC in, the body-mind practice below dips into the nurture available now.
1 How tuned into your own higher guidance do you feel right now? Imagine a light violet dial in front of you labeled 'SPIRIT'.
2 Literally reach out & imagine turning the dial until your hand stops. Did it turn 1/3 of the way around, 2/3rds or full circle?
3 If your dial turned to the first 1/3 consider it 'rest & root'; 2/3rds of a turn is more like growth; Full circle? it's bloom & harvest time.
4 Read step 5 to get clear on what you're going to do next, then soften & close your eyes, take a breath or two & complete step 5.
5 Draw to mind a time [perhaps recent or maybe an imagined event] when you felt connected to a part of you that really supports your best interests. Stay with this image & continue to notice as much detail about it as possible, include any scents or sounds to anchor the experience in your body. Slowly scan your body for any sensations. If there are any, lay your hand there for a moment.
6 Repeat steps 1 and 2 to recheck your dial. Notice what seems different now both on your dial & in the body to take measure of what happens when you feed your sense of purpose in the world for even just a moment.
