My girlfriends, family and I have had a little bug this week. Lots of soup has been sipped. Fevers fed. Deliciously. We are learning to in(habit) Stillness. To stay cosy and warm. To create space. To nourish ourselves. Allowing ourselves to heal. In thriving Autoimmune I’m learning that imbalance in BODY. MIND. SPIRIT. LOVE. HOME. WORK. and PLAY. manifests so I Awaken. In experiencing suffering, illnesss or sniffling I learn to be Mindful. To Flow. To see Interdependance and Impermanence. To release attachments. In this Luxurious Simplicity I Connect. Subtly. My Sensuality. Instinct. Intuition. I Dream.Design.Delight. Gently. In this breath, I in(habit) Myself. I awoke on New Years Eve feeling stronger, more beautiful, more present than ever.
My immediate reACTION was to jump into life. To run, swim, say Yes to a whirlwind of New Years Eve parties. But instead I in(habited) Delight. Gently. Softly. With Stillness. And when I felt the energy ebbing, I drew in. Meditated. Napped. Replenished. At midnight I lost myself in the sparkle of fireworks & music. Breathing IN my 2012 Intention. ‘Mindfully in(Habit) Delight & Grace’. Breathing OUT 2011. When I remember this. I radiate vibrant health. When I do not, my Body ‘whispers’.
So I’m learning to Listen. My face is beginning to Glow again. I’m gently shifting from clinging to the Glow. Health. Sparkle. Vitality. Beauty. Me. I’m recognising that Glow it is simply the manifestation of discovering my light and allowing it to flow through me. I feel like Me, yet remember that this cute little body is impermanent. When the suffering is deeper than sniffles. Illness. Pain. Fear. Anxiety. Aching to discover Truth. Meaning. Aching to Solve the Universe. We awaken further. We are Fireflies. Bodhisattvas. Sensitives.
We are here to Heal. To Create. To Love with our Everything. But we do not need to smooth and soften the entire world, or the entire path before us. We can wear Shoes. Beautiful Sparkly Shoes. And walk alongside other Luminaries. Our energy flowing out to Illuminate our World. I’m a passionate Sustainable Designer, studying Holistic Health, so that I can be an Accomplice in Dream.Design.Delight. So that might create Sanctuaries with other Luminaries, in which we feel feel safe to heal ourselves. Together.
I would be delighted to Tweet you!
How are you in(habiting) Stillness? Pleasure? Every sniffly Breath?
