I’ve had a lovely and long day and am just now getting into bed after a bath. My laptop is here in bed with me as I write; I am committed to blog each day this November and I have exactly one hour and six minutes to finish this post before a new day arrives. Let’s hope I can accomplish this in such a relaxed state — and now a 16-pound cat on my belly.
I’ve decided that Thursdays will be about inspiration. Now inspiration is about being stimulated by something, resonating with it deeply, perhaps even spiritually. Inspiration is also the act of bringing air into your lungs. I love the overlap of these meanings. To inspire is to literally fill yourself up with life-giving energy.
There are so many things, people, ideas, and places that inspire me, but tonight I am called to share how inspired I am by my clients. Today I gave four powerful sessions where I was witness to another person’s transformation. I am inspired by those who come see me for bodywork, energywork, and personal growth work who are so open to listening to themselves deeply, to connecting their minds and bodies, to literally inspiring themselves when a part of the body needs release, filling their lungs with air to create room for the opportunity of change.
I am thankful for all of you who come to me and share your stories, your worries, your images, your sensations, your spirits. I am inspired by your willingness to tune in (not out) and to follow your body’s wisdom, your heart’s yearnings, and your mind’s musings.
When you breathe, I breathe. When you listen, I listen. When you feel a moment of transformation, I am there to be your witness. When you get an insight, I remind you that your body will remember it. When you release tension in a muscle or release tears, I say to you, “yes, good, there” to affirm the change you feel.
Your inspiration is your pathway to transformation. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your process.
With gratitude and deep breaths,
