Sometimes the most expedient and potent way back to our own hearts is through expressing our gratitude for others. This holiday season (or anytime) is a wonderful opportunity to nourish your own heart and those of the people you love…this is often especially true if you are feeling disconnected or challenged this holiday season. Here is an unexpected gratitude practice that might just lift your heart…
"Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind- even if your voice shakes." Maggie Kuhn.
When I first saw this quote a few months ago, it made me tremble. Since then it has been been a traveling companion to my own heart when I have needed its strength and clarity and I have shared it often with beloved friends and clients who have needed to have the courage to speak their truths to people they feared.
Is the velocity of life feeling too fast for you? Like a train speeding toward a destination, there is so much to get accomplished within a small window of time. While this time of year can be particularly busy, if you were to take a moment to pause and take stock you might realize that the pace of your life in general is such that it can contribute to a sense of disconnection. Disconnection from yourself, loved ones, your children, spiritual connection, etc.
The uplifting news is that alongside all the ways in which you may feel disconnected that there are just as many anecdotes available to you right now that will assist you to feel a deeper sense of connection. Over the course of many sessions with my Intuitive Counseling and Feng Shui clients and my own experience, I have distilled a number of practices that can assist you to feel more connected. This in turn can create a ripple effect in your life of opening up your heart and life to even more joy, peace, and possibilities. In conjunction with the inspiring wellness website Happiness Series, I created a video that offers you two very effective and accessible ways to feel a deeper sense of connection in your life.
I would love to hear from you on which tip resonates with you the most. Do you have any suggestions on how you create more connection in your life? Leave them in the comments area below and share the love!
