Life’s gotta Sparkle!!
I love those times when a light pops on in my mind ~ usually a fun new way to understand something about life!
Today my insight is about feeling that inner Spark that is in us all. We help it sparkle with more megawatts when we go with the inner yes’s that it speaks to us, when we enjoy a really great yoga class, when we ski some perfect turns, or create our own masterpieces – out of wood, food, guitar strings, pen, paint or you name it – you know how you invite your own creative juices to flow.
My insight to day is how much of life is about that inner spark – I realize I do yoga and meditate to connect to it. Hakomi therapy is about being guided by it. My mindful meditation programs are based on a trust that we all need to connect to that spark. I love to de-clutter extra thoughts from my brain, and its really to give my spark more space and vitality. My spark is a sense of myself, and it feels soooo right to heed its genuine wishes. Clutter is really an accumulation of thoughts that arise from other people’s values and expectations, really old habits and convictions, social trends, and of course our negative self talk!
Going beyond ourselves, if we relate to others in a way that invites their spark to come out and play, to shine more brightly, then we are connecting in a way people will love and that will bring out the best in them.
May 2015 be the year to let our sparks shine in everything we do, and let go of all the dark clouds that hide it.
