It's All About the Simple Things....
Today a beautiful client asked me what my day looks like? How do I stay grounded? My first thought was “Am I grounded”? So many spiritually influential people speak of how they start their day with meditation, end with yoga or healing rituals at night. Workshops, healings, teachings, group work? How do you stay grounded?
It made me think about it, really think about it. What do I do? Well let’s see, I wake up, I try to spend a few minutes in quiet as the morning greets me, but more often than not I have a little boy who wakes up within moments of my eyes opening, so he joins me in a morning snuggle. It may not be a structured meditation, but when his little arms wrap around me, and he stares deep into my eyes, and tells me how much he loves me, I gotta say – that’s a pretty good way to set my intention for the day.
Breakfast is usually filled with questions from my oldest inquisitive child – he must ask at least 1 million questions per day, but those questions wake up my brain, and spur me on to think of answers. Not just yes or no answers, but true life, spiritual answers so that his mind will stay open and thirsty for more knowledge.
School drop off is filled with “I believe you can have a great day”, “I send you off wrapped in love and light”, “I love you, I will be here when you are done”, “share your light with your friends at school today”. Then off to the gym I go to challenge my body, which gives my brain some quiet time.
My afternoons include working with clients who come to me for help. They come to me with bad knees, bad hips, pain, inflammation, congested livers, headaches, fatigue, sadness, infertility, and so much more. They come to me with the hope that they can feel better. I do what I can, helping some, giving information on where to go next for those that are beyond my help, and we talk. They share the most vulnerable parts of who they are physically, and beyond with me. They trust me enough to know that I will do my very best to help in any way I can. They lie down on a table in front of me, close their eyes, and give their bodies over to my hands. That level of trust blows me away. Each client at one point was a stranger, but something in them connected to who I am, and they put their faith in me.
Sometimes I fill my evenings with more clients, sometimes it consists of running around to activities with my boys, a few more “I love yous”, prayers and night time songs. My days always end with me wrapped in the arms of my soul mate. A man, who completes me and fills up my heart.
There are no extraordinary “grounding” methods in my day. When I can, I add Shamanic journeying, yoga, reading, girl’s nights, wellness workshops and meditation groups to the list above. But it isn’t the extraordinary events that keep life in perspective. It is the simple, every day things that remind me how blessed I am, and that I have everything I need to live a beautiful life.
