SelfLove365: Day 199
For some reason, I’m unable to use the word “generous” to describe myself. Giving, maybe, at times.
Today a friend told me he really liked my painting that I made yesterday. In that moment, I knew I would give it to him. He then asked me if it was still available, and I knew it was the perfect gift.
SelfLove365: Day 195
During a healing session with Roxanne, she asked me to go into the well in my heart. This visualization was very clear for me: the well was deep, dark, damp, and scary. I entered it from a vast library, and as I went down into the well, with Roxanne at my side, I was scared, but she encouraged me to go to the bottom (I didn’t think there was a bottom, but she assured me there was one). Once I was there, I found a book on the ground: “Peter Pan”. This seemed odd to me, at first, until I remembered that I used to listen to the soundtrack often, when I was a child. I opened it, and turned to two parts in the story. One was the scene where Wendy and her brothers are first leaping from the window, into the sky. The other was the image of Wendy sewing Peter’s shadow to him. Both of these had meaning for me, which Roxanne explained, but I already knew the meanings intuitively, too. The image of sewing on the shadow was particularly important to me – I can claim my shadow side, and know that it also helps others create a clearer view of themselves, and in this way, it is a gift.
SelfLove365: Day 194
This morning, I brought my three children to Griffith Woods. My 8-year old son insisted he wasn’t coming, that I am not the boss of him, and as usual, I calmly replied that I am the boss of where he goes, but he is the boss of how he feels about it. I mentioned to him that the last time I was there, I brought my special rock, and set it in front of “my tree“, to gather some energy from the sun and the Earth. This piqued his interest, and he ran to his room to gather his special rocks.
What was supposed to be a 10-minute walk turned into over an hour, with all the children talking eagerly about whether their rocks wanted to be placed in the water, if they wanted to go gather more sun energy, which trees were calling to them, and the best part.. my son insisted that we come back in two days to visit the rock he left behind in the stream, and also, that this was so much fun, Mom!!
SelfLove365: Day 193
I want to remember to remember this, because it seems like I forget a LOT. When I ask myself, “How am I going to deal with this?”, the answer invariably lies in my body. Today I was thinking about rejection, and how I can confront rejection when it comes up for me again. I got really caught up in my head, thinking, thinking, thinking, until I remembered… ah yes! The body. What does rejection feel like in my body, and can I feel it?
During meditation, I noticed the in-breath felt like acceptance and validation, while the out-breath was like rejection. But really, the both felt similar, and equally pleasant. Can I do this in reality? Accept validation and rejection as pleasant? Also, the breath was coming and going, but I wasn’t attached to any one of the breaths that entered or exited my body. Letting go of situations and attachments this easily will come…
