Welcome to the final practise of this moving meditation series (wow!)! This series uses powerful tools suchy as movement, music, breath, meditation, poetry and journaling to fuel an intention. Our intention for this practise is to give. There is a reason this practise is the last in this series.
Together we spent so much energy inward on ourselves, an incredibly important fondation if we want to share ourselves outward to others.
It is challenging to give something you don’t already have. Although giving is seen as a positive action, it can have negative consequences if we are depleting ourselves or harbouring unhealthy expectations. This is where all the intentions we worked through come together - if we listen, let go, heal and can receive, we are primed to give from a wholesome and abundant place. When done from this place, giving is a beautiful act that can really come back to us full
circle. By giving, does one truly receive.
I recommend you do the series practises in sequential order for maximum benefit, but these practices do all stand alone. You can use all the tools or only some. You know what works best for you - you always have. Way to go and congratulations for coming this far!
A poem by rupi kaur to ponder as you explore the intention to listen.
the universe took its time on you
crafted you to offer the world
something different from everyone else
when you doubt
how you were created
you doubt an energy greater than us both
rupi kaur (p.197 - the sun and her flowers)
Take 30 - 60 minutes to complete the journal prompts below. I recommend doing this either right after or the same day as your practise. Happy writing and be brave with your pen.
1 - Describe a day of abundance (maybe write in third person if easier). How do you feel? What do you look like? Who are you with? What are you doing?
2 - What do you really love about your life?
