Winter is the time to reflect and dream. Our natural rhythm is to slow down, restock and prepare for spring. One of the best gifts you can give yourself and others, is the time to stop, rest, nurture, nourish and have true deep connections. It’s a magical time to reflect on the year’s moments that filled you and made you feel good, everything just flowed.
What was it that naturally made that happen? Was it that you were so connected to your truth, your undiluted truth? Do you know what your truth is, that pure undiluted part of yourself? It’s also a truth to reflect on those moments that didn’t flow for you, causing you to feel out of sorts, just so irritated, chaotic, feeling down and miserable. What was it that made that happen?
Can you remember how you were feeling and what your thoughts were when this happened? What was it about those moments that caused you to be driven towards or away from your true self? The answer to these questions will help you know what you need to nurture and nourish yourself truthfully.
Here is a simple exercise to do.
Start with drawing two columns. Then head one column chaos and the other column peace. At the bottom of the chaos column put fear. At the bottom of the peace column put love.
Give yourself three minutes for each column, six minutes in total. Think of those moments of fear, chaos, love and peace. Write down what ignited your stresses and fears that drove you towards chaos, disconnecting you from your undiluted truth.
Then write down what ignited your love, connecting you to your pure truth that put you into a natural flow towards peace. This is a beautiful exercise to do not just in the winter season but also throughout the year. It shows you the way to stay on your true path. To be your true undiluted truthful self.
