affirmation for today - I AM ONE WITH THE EARTH. I AM ONE WITH MY BODY.
earth week has arrived and focuses on our physical environment, nurturing ourselves and connecting to the earth.
today, in my morning meditation, i visualised that i was a tree with my roots firmly planted in the ground, at the same time, being fully present and aware of the air and water elements needed for my existence......and also the fire element which brings renewal and change in my life. the interaction between the elements emphasises to me that we are ALL connected.
we were asked to assess our body by answering 'yes or no' to a list of questions. am i comfortable and happy with my body? hmmmmmm....yes and no. for one, i live with a back injury i sustained in a fall five years ago and i have to be careful not to overdo things or i can suffer in pain for days. that said, i do try to live a healthy lifestyle. i am enjoying my morning meditations as i feel they help to centre me for the rest of the day.
my art today revolved around nature. aaron and i walked down to the creek and we picked a few leaves to use as stamps for my canvas. i thoroughly enjoyed putting it all together in a messy fashion with earthy tones.
update on michelle - the pain has subsided for now though she is still quite tender in the region. she is staying here for a couple of days so, at least, she won't be home alone if the pains return. thank you all so much for your prayers and words of concern. it was so appreciated.
love, light and peace
