Do you feel it? The frenetic energy in the air. As the holidays loom in the not so distant future.
- For some of us it is the anticipation of all we need to do.
- For some of us it is the anticipation of spending time with family.
- For others it is the anticipation of spending the holidays without loved ones.
Wherever it comes from, it is sometimes difficult to discern what is ours and what we are feeling from the world around us. And, it is during these times, that it is especially important to create sacred space for ourselves. Creating space inside ourselves first and then extending outside into our environment.
A great daily practice is to create a protective bubble around yourself.
Be Still. Focus on your breath. Try this:
Bubble of Peace
Place your hands at your side
Imagine that with each inhale you are filling your lungs with love
Imagine that with each exhale you are blowing up a bubble and filling it with peace
On each exhale, raise your arms a little at a time until your bubble extends from finger tip to finger tip
Imagine that you are completely surrounded and protected in your own little bubble of peace.
Wash. Rinse. Repeat as needed.
Fun. Flow. Freedom.
