Things to teach:
Feeling into heart energy and listening to our hearts instead of going with SHOULDs. Should creates guilt so guilt is a symptom that we’re being pushed from expectations rather than following our heart as IT leads.
Metaphor: kid with icecream loves eating it but if she’s being yelled at to eat it then the joy gets sucked out of it.
Depression comes from not following our heart but being whipped by shoulds.
Flowing with the Universe.. being creative and dancing with everything means we’re constantly in motion.. things that come up for us are part of the dance rather than something that has to be started or stopped. There is no right or wrong.. just the dance.. you can’t get the dance right.. it’s about listening to our heart and dancing with it.. throwing out the yin yang or right wrong and swirling our energy into a d through the world. It IS a gift that everyone around you will enjoy more too so don’t feel you’ll out others out.
Water wears away stone. To stop is to gradually be worn away.
The Zen of Stone
Arriving home to this moment. There is no past, future - just one giant NOW. We don’t put down roots. Our roots are already there - it’s about coming back to the realisation that we’re already grounded.
Growth, leaves and allowing those leaves to fall.
