We weren’t designed to be merely linear beings. We are a blend of body, mind, and spirit and were born to be connected to all living things. Unfortunately, our lives today don’t always support this union. Consequently many people spend much of their lives disconnected from their spirits and walk through life as distant and isolated observers. This is very sad, for when you disconnect in this manner you can lose touch with your authentic nature and what is really important.
I know no greater feeling than the bliss of knowing who you are and that you truly belong. A union and connection of this magnitude can give you the energy and confidence you need to pursue your dreams. But without this connection to your spirit it is difficult to be fully alive and make your dreams a reality.
So how can you know when you are disconnected from your spirit? If you have lost your hope or your direction, then you probably have lost your connection with your spirit. If you have lost your ability to love and be loved, or just being alive doesn’t make you happy, then you most likely have lost connection to your spirit.
When this happens I think it is time to go inward and reconnect with your authentic nature. You can accomplish this many ways. When my children were young and I had very little time for myself, I would use my daily chores and breathing techniques to slow myself down so I could reconnect with myself and remember what was important to me. As my children got older I was able to return to my pen and pencil and also model for them how to use scribbling and drawing to reconnect with themselves in a deeper way.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
