This week's Finding Water challenge asks how we stay grounded and connected.
Sometimes I find this easier said than done. I have a job which often leaves me feeling anxious and stressed out -- drained of all creativity.
Last year, after a health scare, I realised I needed to find my centre once again. I started by blogging on 12 April 2006. This was the reawakening of my spiritual journey.
From here I started spiritual counselling, with a wise soul, who guided me to look deep within myself. After working with my inner-child and some 'rude' awakenings, I started to reconnect with the Goddess. She'd always been with me, laying dormant in my belly waiting for the right time to emerge.
After attending a Goddess Workshop held by Deb and Lucy, I found the Goddess soaring within my being. I felt like a butterfly finding freedom from its cocoon. I was thirsty for knowledge -- wanting to become more creative and to explore my full potential.
My journey of discovery took me too www.goddess.com.au, where I met the beautiful Anita Ryan-Revel, and I became a Goddess Playshop facilitator, learning about the goddesses and the chakras. By this time I knew I was on the right path.
Then I discovered ChakraDance, it was the next natural progression for me ~ I am now on the path to become an ChakraDance instructor.
So what do I do to stay grounded and calm? That's easy ... I meditate every day to restore my energy levels and reinvigorate my spirit. I know it works, because when I don't my life turns topsy-turvey.
Because I find it difficult to 'still' my mind, I used guided meditations to help me achieve my state of bliss. I focus on each chakra and evoke the goddess. I also use aromatherapy to aid me in my journey. I often use my chakra base spray to help me refocus when faced with a challenging situation.
I also try to walk around the lake every day -- it helps clear my head and gives both Trinity and me some much needed exercise!
So there you have it, I stay grounded by:
- daily meditation
- working with the goddess and the chakras
- walking in nature
