“There’s never been a time such as this.”
I have heard this over and over throughout this year. Close your eyes and take a deep breath, hold it and say this phrase, “there’s never been a time such as this” to yourself. Keeping your eyes closed, take a few more deep breaths, place your hands on your heart, and one more deep breath…. 💭
What comes up for you? Maybe a twinge of excitement within your chest, a feeling of connectedness and groundedness in your soul? Or it could be one of those days and you’re allowing your mind to wander into the future of your never-ending to-do list. There’s no right or wrong here, I just encourage you to try this practice.
It’s been very revealing for me this year. A few ideas that came through after working with this quick practice: 👇
1. What if the retreat is no longer “intimate”? 🔍 What if true intimacy is not with others but a practice within us that can be cultivated, and the collective energy of a more expansive group is capable of being the catalyst for bigger, bolder transformation.
2. Your book is meant to be channeled through you, not written by you. 📚 Create the space for it to come through. Although you are writing about letting go of the notion that we must do everything to condense time (AKA save time AKA rush daily), there is an opportunity here to create an environment of creativity, play, and focus to condense the writing process and allow ease and flow.
By the way, these are things that I am sitting with. Not yet taking action on, but I have written them down and I am sitting in contemplation with them. I encourage you to do the same.
I hope you enjoyed this beautiful practice this week and I’d love to hear what comes up for you! 👂 Hit reply and let me know! ✉️
