Sacred Space

You

In the last blog, we learned the origin of the word “spirit” is Latin and means “breath”.  Would you travel down a thought path with me for a moment?

Your breath is the essence of who you are.  Without breath, there is no life.  Without your spirit, there is no life.

Do you know your essence, what makes up you?  Rachelle Williams from the Chopra Center wrote the following:

“A spiritual self-care practice is any ritual that connects you to your true self, the real you.”1  

If time is not taken to care for your spirit, you - the beautiful you who you are - will suffer.  

Again, take a little thought journey with me.  Recall a time you followed the path of the masses, despite knowing you did not agree with that path.  How did your spirit feel?  In that discord of you following that with which you did not agree, your spirit was being stifled.     

I boldly encourage you to not stifle your spirit; instead, develop and feed your spirit!  Taking care of your spirit is not selfish.  In fact, it is necessary.  In that care, you will learn what is sacred to you and how to honor the sacred.  

Please join me in the next blog as we walk through ways to not only care for your spirit, but to explore your spirit.  There may just be things in there that surprise you!

Until next time,

Bethany and Jordan
