It is a beautiful winter afternoon here with snow falling, changing the dreary grey landscape to white magic in front of my eyes. We had an unexpected school "snow day" that has everyone in my family cuddled up in our own zones for a few hours, relishing the extra time to pause our regular routines!
In true snow day form, I decided to skip the Healing Our Souls video that I was going to make (Setting an Intention Grid for 2017 - it's okay, I'll do it next week!) and instead go take a bath. Yes, excellent choice! And with the deepest of gratitude for my ALL TIME FAVORITE BATH SALTS EVER, by the gifted Andrea's Alchemy.
Defined as "to dwell or linger; to take a break or rest to emphasize meaning."
It's been an interesting week as I can feel an internal push to jump into the new year, make plans, set a bunch of deadlines, take action... and yet my body has been tired, wanting to move slowly and rest more than usual. I can feel myself sitting on the threshold of change - transitioning from one year to the next. Lingering in the sweetness of all that I created in 2016 and allowing this pause first to emphasize all of the meaning.
Perhaps you are in a similar space?
Or maybe your body is forcing a slow down through illness? If so, lean in. Rest. Take a bath! Journal. Allow space to see what wants reflection or integration. We explored this threshold together on last week's Viben call, and I can feel the pieces still resonating with me days later. Sometimes the community meditation energy feels more comforting than going it solo yet again!
And so I pause. Reflect. Meditate. Chat with my husband. Play with my puppy!
2017 is stretching out in front of me, wide open with the possibilities of all that is yet to be created and experienced. I'm beginning by just sitting in this Now moment. It's good! :)
