I have come to believe that when you find yourself searching for something to make you feel whole—be it a relationship or a new toy—what you may be looking for or trying to reclaim is your soul. The loss or disconnect from your soul can feel like an overwhelming emptiness, a disorientation, or even depression.
In all cases, I feel it is important to become still and quiet, go inward, and figure out what you need in that moment and what is missing in your life. The fast-paced life of today can make it difficult for us to maintain a deep connection with our authentic nature or soul, and being disconnected from our soul can also make dealing with life’s challenges even harder.
So what do I do when I find myself feeling empty, lost, overwhelmed, disoriented, or depressed? I usually do one of three things: I either go for a long walk with the intent of doing a walking meditation, draw, or do one of the ICWIB! activities. They all have a movement component, the ability to quiet my mind, draw me inward, and help me reconnect my body, mind, and spirit. As soon as that is accomplished a solution normally arises to the surface.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE because they are also a wonderful way to quiet your mind, go inward, and reconnect with your true nature or soul.
