Caring for our body, mind, and spirit is our greatest and grandest responsibility. It’s about listening to the needs of our soul and then honoring them.” – Kristi Ling
When we have a to do list that never ends or have a busy mind that consumes our life, we can forget to nurture our feminine energy. Doing is easy, practising nurturing and listening requires an effort.
This week I was reminded again, to go within to nurture and listen.
How often do we take time to listen, breathe and tune into how our physical body feels? How often do we recognize and feel the feelings that arise within us throughout the day? Taking time to nurture, re-connect and feel, is vital in balancing our energy.
Sit in a quiet place, close your eyes
Take some deep breaths in and slowly out
Feel you chest rise up with your inhale and exhale deeply, feel your body relax
Now tune in to your physical body. Are you holding any stress? what feels contracted or tight? Breathe into those areas until you feel them relax and soften
Now tune into your heart chakra. How does this feel? Do you feel heavy or light in this area? Are there any emotions you are holding for yourself or someone else? Allow any feelings to be felt. Breathe them out deeply into the earth until you feel they are released or it feels lighter in this area
Hold your right hand on your heart. Breathe in deeply and allow gratitude into your heart. Be thankful for this time to be still, listen and nurture your body and spirit.
