I enter the month of December feeling lighter in a lot of ways. I sense that a new season has begun for me. My attempts at my typical meditation practice didn’t sit well with me this morning. It left me feeling — unfulfilled. I felt compelled to go back to a simple guided meditation that began my meditation practice way back when. It left me feeling invigorated, rejuvenated, and with a sense of clarity that I haven’t felt in quite some time. I also walked away with the knowledge that this is a time for me to reassess what I am doing and why I am doing it in all areas of my life so that I can move forward in alignment and flow with what this new season brings.
As we move through life and gather new knowledge, new ways of being, new ways of thinking, things can get a little murky and muddled when the methods that worked for us previously no longer resonate. It’s important to recognize that sometimes, even good things need to be released or at least packed away for the time being when they are not needed in the next season.
Like my mediation practice, my focus also needs to shift along with the season. Now, while I am waiting to see where the flow of life is about to take me, I feel a need to dial back a bit and go back to basics while mindfully knowing that going back to basics is very different than going back to where I started. Everything looks different, feels different, and works differently than it did the first time around, because I am now looking at it from the vantage point of a new place in my journey.
I feel the same way about my practice, Wheelwork Integrative Wellness. Over time, I gather new knowledge, offer new services and implement new methodologies, but in this new season, I feel a need to go back to basics. That means going back to the foundation of why I built this practice and seeing it from a new vantage point — with the knowledge, skills, and lessons I have learned since first beginning.
It feels good. It feels fresh. It feels like progress. I am looking forward to what is to come and working with more people as they discover and explore their own identities from their own unique perspectives. This season is going to be a great one, and I am very happy to be able to share it with all of you!
