It’s been a wild time here in Beverly lately, lots of thunderstorms, with beautiful lightening shows over the ocean out my back windows.
(This is a NASA picture, not one I took but you get the idea.)
I haven’t been able to go on my weekly hike because the weather hasn’t been cooperating.
Last night’s tremendous storm rolled in the kind of warm air we haven’t seen yet this spring. We’re having a heat wave in the low 90’s for the next couple of days.
It seems like the weather and life has been asking me to stretch in new ways. Finding new ways to connect with nature, new ways to ground and center, new ways to be physically active, and new things to learn in the new classes I start every six weeks at Endicott College.
Sometimes life asks us to stretch a lot, and it’s challenging. At the same time it’s an opportunity to grow and develop character. I’ve found that when life requires me to stretch a lot, I need more quiet, contemplative time so that I can recharge and not snap under all the strain.
As you know, I’ve been spending more time in meditation, in nature, and disconnecting from technology in order to make breathing space during this stretchy growth and change period in my life.
How do you make breathing space for yourself when life is stretching you?
If you need help creating space where you can nourish your spirit when life is challenging, here are a few ways I can help you.
I’m also offering Nourish your Heart & Soul Reiki sessions right now where you can slow down, relax deeply, release stress and anxiety, open your heart and reconnect with joy and lightness. It’s a special fundraiser I’m doing for One Fund Boston. For each session, I’m donating $10 to the fund. We have just a few weeks left to make donations. Nourish yourself in sacred space, while you help others, it’s a win-win situation. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 978-338-4326 to schedule a session.
