Take A Journey Into the Trees Today!
Julia Cameron in her book The Artist's Way, encourages us to take a weekly "Artist Date" with our Self. I invite you to visit an outdoor space with plenty of trees where you can sit, watch the course video, and listen for the wisdom that is sure to come. Make that your Artist Date for this week, then return home with a small branch that you have recovered from the tree-lined space you visited and create your Mother Tree Spirit Doll.
This accomplishes two things:
- Sacred Self-Care - Dedicated time where you focus on you and only you.
- Your Artist Date for the week.
It is imperative that we take time for self-care -- that's the only way to heal! Without spending focused time on You, healing cannot begin. As Zen Shin tells us: "A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms." Let us not think about the next task that doesn't focus solely on our Self unless and until we have spent dedicated time focusing on our Self. In other words, do not compete with other things; take time for your Self and bloom.
