Here is an excerpt from Pause; New Year Vision Daybook…
“When I started dating my now husband, he asked me,”Do you know how often you hold your breath?”He also asked my Mum at a dinner party the same question. She laughed, “Oh she used to do that all the time as a child, sometimes she would hold her breath so long, that she would pass out.”This family intervention became a defining moment.
When life got a little too hard or I was stressed or even enjoying myself I would hold my breath as a form of control and security.
How are you going in the in-between breathy moments of life?
Are you able to breathe deeply right now?
In the cafe where you are sitting, the dining table, the bedroom floor or holiday house. Wherever you find yourself today, I created this little retreating tool to help you catch your breath and reimagined a new beginning.”
The sacred time between Christmas and New Year is a powerful time of transition. Over the last 15 years, I have created space to reflect. Each year I am surprised at the treasures that I reclaim from my year.
No matter what time of year it is for you today. Take a creative retreat to surrender to these questions. The word “Selah”, means to pause and quietly reflect on what has just been said. We need to be honest with ourselves for this to work.
Here to have a creative retreat:
*Print off these pages, find a favourite pen.
*Get a drink and set your atmosphere to a quiet and reflective space.
*Turn off your phone.
*Start by saying thank you for the year that was and open your heart up for new inspiration for the year coming.
*Then dive in.
You inspire me already.
