Nurturing Your Soul
There’s this pie shaped corner in our backyard.
Behind the gazebo.
And on the tiny purple flowers growing underneath, we see a bumblebee gliding from one flower to another.
To just be.
To make art.
To read and journal.
And to have a quick mindfulness break.
Sitting here I instantly feel connected to everything.
To nature. To the Universe. To my own Soul.
It feels at ease.
It feels at peace.
It feels at home. At ease.
And at peace. Our Souls long for such space because in this ease and peace, it can easily expand and merge into the vastness of the Spirit.
Like a drop merges into vastness of the ocean.
Our Soul Space can come in different shapes, sizes and characteristics.
Sometimes this Soul Space is a little nook in our living room.
With a dark brown recliner and a hand-knitted throw gently resting on it’s arm.
A tiny succulent sitting on the window sill, basking in the sunlight that filters through.
And an old side table, with just enough space to keep a salt lamp, a journal and our tea cup.
A nook where we come back after a long day to sit, sip a cup of chamomile and take a breather.
Sometimes this Soul Space is a corner in our home-office.
With a small rug, a meditation cushion and an altar full of sacred trinkets.
An incense tray. A book. A journal. And a crystal or two.
A corner where we sit every morning, light up an incense, listen to Om chants, read and sit in silence.
And sometimes this Soul Space has transformed itself through many stages of life. Just like us.
It’s been a dining room, an office, a play area, and now…it’s our Soul Space.
With a wood ledge next to the windows, full of plants and pots of all sorts.
A Buddha statue resting in-between these plants and holding our favorite candle.
And a rug on the floor, full of colorful cushions and a antique tray to keep our pot of tea.
A space where we meditate. Do our daily reading. Talk to the plants. Twirl like a ballerina. And connect with the Universe.
A Soul Space is as unique as we all are.
And no matter what it looks like, one thing is common for sure.
A Soul Space is ALWAYS filled with the consciousness of expansion and connection.
This is what is nurturing – where the nurturing comes from – consciousness of expansion…
It expands our heart, our mind and our Soul.
It helps us introspect, dig deep, ask questions and listen to our innate wisdom.
It makes it effortless for us to connect with the Source, the Spirit and the Infinite.
And we LOVE spending time here.
We look forward to sitting on that recliner, meditating on that cushion and lying on that rug reading away.
Because whenever we spend time there, even if it’s just a couple of minutes a day, it does wonders for our body, mind, and the entire being.
It’s a space our Soul longs for…
To feel nurtured.
To feel at peace.
To feel at ease.
And to gently nudge us back in-tune with our Path & Purpose.
