I have been adding to the other connecting to oneness list this morning before going on to lesson 7. After finding all this beautiful sharing here, I would like to copy my offering here too (apologies for the repetition of post for those who are dotting back and forth between lessons like I am).
I have a few things that I would like to share that bring me back into line and connect me.
Full submersion in sea, lake or river. This is one of the most effective methods I have found for re-fragging myself. I find I don’t need to stay in long, especially if it is really cold, but head under is a great way to get me out of my head.
Early morning walks. When there is no-one about and the day is really young, I find this is a time of real connection. Especially at this time of year when it is light and sunny, there is something really golden about this space.
After work run/walk. With the good weather, I have found going out almost immediately after getting back from work is a good way to ditch the shenanigans of the day and create a bit more spaciousness.
Doing something for someone else. I know this has been mentioned before but I thought I’d put it again as it is one of the main things that works for me, no matter what state of disconnection I find myself in. Sending a home-made card or writing a letter, making a cake, cooking someone a meal and delivering it without staying…I find I don’t even really need to see the person or stay for very long with them. It is as much about the preparation and thought that can lift me back into a state of connectedness.
Singing. It doesn’t matter if there is no tune or words, I find making any kind of sound is a good way to open my heart.
