The Journey Within: A Meditation Practice Day 8

The Journey Within: A Meditation Practice Day 8

Prior to moving to the countryside in the mountains, I recall the mindset I had adopted in regards to the weather. I would look up at the storm clouds hovering above the mountaintops from my home in the valley and say, “it can snow in the mountains and only rain down here”. 

Now that I’m living up here it’s a whole new world and I’m so grateful to have a closer look! So grateful to have a deeper appreciation for the beauty within the seasons as well! Including that of snow flurries!

As you may have guessed, I woke up this morning to the sight of snow gently and gracefully floating down to the Earth. I took the opportunity to watch out my window for a little while prior to moving through my daily morning routine. 

And I’m so grateful that I did!

All was still in the neighborhood outside as the snowflakes dusted the grass like powdered sugar. A dove glided through the bundles of snowflakes, making her way to her nest in the nearby tree.

I was entranced by the gentle and steady motion as the snow crystals fell to the Earth. So incredibly calming.

After a while of observing the natural and simple beauty outside, I brought the calmness I felt with me into the rest of my day as well as in my meditation.

It was in stillness of sweet surrender that I saw in my mind’s eye a little girl dancing through what felt like a field of thigh-high grass. She was looking up at the sky with a wide smile, her arms wide in glee as she twirled with each step forward – it looked to me like a variation of what one may see in a polka dance.

The atmosphere felt so good, fun and silly as well as what I could only describe as freedom! As she danced closer to where I stood, I noticed that the little girl was myself as a child!

Stopping in front of me, she reached out her hand with a smile painted on her face that reached her eyes – twinkling and full of hope. 

I, of course, gleefully took her hand to join her in celebration and dance! It felt amazing! My heart glowed as bright as the sun with so much love and joy as we frolicked through the field! Giggling as we embraced our silliness!  

Which was actually what brought me out of meditation. I literally giggled myself back into the present moment! What a hoot!

I’m so grateful that I carved out some time for myself to tune-in as well as experience connecting with my inner child! Such an essential space to be in which I also feel helps strengthen our creative flow! 

As kids innately create and imagine with ease, so may we. May we take the time to be in the space of infinite creation! To be in flow as we co-create the most amazing experiences in our lives with the law of attraction!

In gratitude, dear friends, I bid you adieu.

Until next time, peace be with you.
