It is an essential life-cycle exchange generating, from generation to generation
Have you ever felt that solid, that rooted inside your own skin?
When you work with the structure of your internal foundation, you establish the deepest connections inside the root of your being. You cultivate a sense of safety and stability. You feel safe and secure because you trust yourself intensely, remaining ever present in the moment of now--the moment of your truth.
- The Body Never Lies -
There is a vast storage of knowledge and wisdom inside the body's communications-
Do you listen... deeply...? Do you act purely of your body's communication and reach for intimacy and alliance..? How much do you actually trust yourself..?
In order to grow and expand in a strong and sustainable way, we must develop a solid foundation and root inside our structure. It is the most essential first part of self-care and it requires a focused presence with the deepest parts of yourself, the base of your being-- your roots.
Where do your roots come from?
This Month's Meditation Focus:
Building Foundation and Rooting inside our Structure
I saw the sweetest video this week of a mama otter snuggling her newborn baby otter pup while floating down stream together. When I watched this video the first time, I was just filled with sweetness and absolute joy! It was one of the cutest things I had ever seen. I posted it on my Facebook page and it turned out, many other people thought it was just as darling as well.
As I watched the video a few more times, I found myself slowly moving away from the obvious cuteness connection of these two beautiful otter's and suddenly, I felt myself focusing a little deeper on how the mother otter was holding her baby so close. I honed in on how mama’s arms wrapped around her baby gently and surrounded baby with affectionate snuggles and kisses to complete their journey down stream together.
I dropped my awareness down, even deeper inside myself and I began to see very clearly the depth of love mama was giving her baby pup. There was a great care and complete nurturing connection they shared together in "otter" purity and sweetness. My attention was no longer on the surface but now, my focus and understanding deepened. I was in fascination of how mama became her baby's foundation, as baby rested on mama's belly in the water. Even softer now, I connected to how securely yet mama held baby close yet, without restraint and repeatedly offered reassurance of love and affection every step of their way. I realized mama was building a solid foundation and intimate bond with her baby. Why, of course baby felt safe and secure. Of course, baby trusted her mama as they aimlessly floated down stream with no other protection but only that of her mama's arms and affection.
I sunk deeper inside and I realized that the basic needs of feeling safe and secure establishes our foundation and strengthens our ability to root in our structure. Our structure is developed and sustained from the level of deep care, nurture, and reassurance of the intimate bond created between parent and child.
From here, I fell...
Deep down, into the roots of my being and I saw the need. I saw the basic need in feeling safe and secure within myself. It was a glimmer, a chance witness to begin to build a solid foundation and intimate bond within myself.
The body never lies - you only need to listen.
Come into your own arms and explore the root of your being so you can re-build your foundation. Ask yourself these questions:
- Where do my roots come from and how are they repeating themselves in my current experience?
- How can I give myself more loving care, sweet nurture and sustainable reassurance to create a sense of deep internal safety and security?
Write it down. Have fun with it!
