#deeplistening

I first learned about yoga asana in college. It was slow, with no explanation of context, and the teacher just called out poses while practicing with only cursory glances at the students. I hated it. I was struggling with depression and anxiety and anytime you asked me to be still or quiet, I would panic without realizing that’s what was happening.
.
Fast forward to shortly after college. The world was wide open to me and I felt completely lost. I stumbled into another yoga studio- this one was a hot vinyasa-style studio. A combination of the heat, the movement, and the yogic philosophy sprinkled in began working on me.
.
At first it was tears. Anytime my head was below my heart and sometimes for the entire 90min, I would cry. I began to feel my body for the first time in a long time. There was grief. Anger. Victim stories. Weakness. Some days I felt overwhelmed when confronted with all my mistakes, all my ‘failings’. .
And one day a quiet voice from somewhere deep inside me spoke up. It whispered: ‘you don’t have to change everything all at once. What if, at least just for today, you stay in each pose you want to come out of one breath longer than you think you can?’
.
It was a small change but it held accountability, strength, and compassion. And it began on my mat before rippling out into the rest of my life. If you open yourself to it, yoga will change you. And not because it’s ‘peaceful’ or ‘relaxing’ but because it will show you all the ways YOU add stress, anxiety, and drama to your own life. It will show you your own doubts and fears and the ways you weaken yourself. It will show you where you push too hard and where you don’t give yourself enough credit. It’s by no means an easy journey, but if you take responsibility for yourself, if you learn to balance surrender with discipline, softness with strength, vulnerability with courage... you will become more of who you’ve always been. And your whole life will change.
.
Are you practicing a limited form of yoga? Holding yourself back from being whole? Are you bringing your yoga off your mat and into your life? If not, why? And if so, what has transpired? 💚

Call me crazy, but I could definitely feel the Directional Resistance in these old Redwoods in Santa Cruz!

Directional Resistance is a core technique to the Morales Method®. If you have taken any of my classes, online or in person, you will have heard me discuss this skill. In this work, we most often work in the direction in which the tissue is most unwilling to move, or in the direction of resistance.

Feeling Directional Resistance requires deep listening skills on the part of the practitioner. By being quiet and bringing attention to our hands, we are able to feel all kind of things happening in the client’s body. As we move the tissue in each direction we will come across a particular direction that feels most “sticky”. This is the direction of resistance.

After years of practicing this skill I got the urge to try it on some Redwoods when on a walk a few weeks back and I swear I was feeling something! I’d love to hear about it if you give it a try!

Orchid mimicry (matching colors of birds, bees, butterflies for the purpose of pollinating) reminds us we are big magnets. What is your energy emitting? Take stock of your thought-inventory. Your thoughts are energy. What kind of energy are you putting out? Flower meanings for the orchid is all about energy-output. Therefore, she asks you what kind of energy are you exuding. Negative? Positive? Self-destructive? Self-enhancing? Orchid asks us to remember we attract to ourselves the same energy we put out. In other words, if you’re a negative Nellie, you’re going to get negativity back. But if you’re a positive Polly…you guessed it…positivity will be at your doorstep.

In keeping with the theme of celebration and gratitude, day 24 of our #journeywithgratitude : what’s a mistake you’ve made or a lesson you’ve learned you can celebrate? .
Remember- celebration doesn’t happen in spite of what is challenging about life, in spite of darkness, in spite of horror- it happens in the face of it. That is revolutionary, world-changing, truly heart-breakingly beautiful joy, love, and resiliency. It is, in fact, the best of us. 💚 Let me hear from you below!

There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.

This weekend I'll be teaching my first group yoga class since May 2016 when I stopped teaching to address the fatigue & symptoms of CFS.  It's only a one hour session as part of a day long Wellbeing event and it's something that I would have so easily taken in my stride in the past - but it feels like a big deal just at the moment. 🧘🧘🧘
This afternoon I got down one of my box files with some of my old lesson plans and started looking through them.  On most of them I wrote a short introduction - almost like a thought for the day.  What a mix of emotions looking through these has brought up.  Things like ...
🧘🧘🧘
💭Wow some of these are really good - will I ever regain this kind of confidence in my teaching?
💭So many of the introduction pieces reflect what was going on in my life at the time of writing and I am able to look at my past self with a real sense of compassion. With hindsight I can understand that for years I was becoming unwell and struggling a little to keep going - but my spirit was strong and out of my pain I'm reading some genuine nuggets of wisdom 💭Who am I now as a teacher. What is it - if anything - that I have to say??
💭Why am I putting myself back out there? Wouldn't it be easier to find something different to do and say of Alison the Yoga Teacher version of me that she's "just somebody I used to know"...
🧘🧘🧘
So - this week is about preparation and personal practice.  And about trusting that I'll be able to find inside what's required for this next step. 🙏
And hope. Hope that what was inside me before hasn't been lost. 🙏

In my coaching practice, I love watching clients realize their own knowing. 
Coaching is a powerful space for deep listening — to yourself. Time to truly hear your own thoughts and tune into your inherent wisdom. 
I don’t know what you should do! Turning to your coach to ‘tell you’ is not going to bring you to your most alive. 
But, a tiny space for quiet, for some good questions, for some tuning in? Mmmm ... what magic may come of this? 💫

To look for solace is to learn to ask fiercer and more exquisitely pointed questions, questions that reshape our identities and our bodies and our relation to others. Standing in loss but not overwhelmed by it, we become useful and generous and compassionate and even amusing companions for others. But solace also asks us very direct and forceful questions. Firstly, how will you bear the inevitable that is coming to you? And how will you endure it through the years? And above all, how will you shape a life equal to and as beautiful and as astonishing as a world that can birth you, bring you into the light and then just as you are beginning to understand it, take you away?

True holiness and wholeness come when we allow God’s love and grace to unfold in the present moment and we respond to what is before us. Holiness is simply being connected to our Source. #crownpoint #columbiarivergorge #richardrohr #consciouslove #consciousparenting #wholeness #holiness #contemplativelife #walkinpeaceandlove #growinawarenessandspirit #deeplove #deepsilence #deeplistening #my🌎♥️ #realphoto

FEELING AT HOME IN YOUR BODY

Some practices we feel right at home, connected and content. Other days (like yesterday for me) we feel disconnected and yuck! It’s all good though, sometimes we have to move out of alignment to move back into alignment.

Our household has been sick and my body felt cold and run down. It felt hard to occupy and being in my head felt easier. It took me all morning to acknowledge that I’d been hating on my body for getting sick! All the stories of ‘well you are a yoga teacher and reiki master so you shouldn’t be sick.’ ‘Your immune system should be better!’ ‘Maybe if you ate better! That chocolate after dinner doesn’t help your immunity!’ And blah blah blah all the unloving thoughts about what I am doing wrong. And you know what helped me feel at home again in my body? Talking to it and saying ‘I love you even though you are sick’. She softened instantly. I didn’t know this story was playing in the background of my mind all week, telling me something was wrong because I was ill. But some deep listening helped me rewrite it and move deeper into loving myself.

💘😭😭😭💙💙💙💙💙.
.
It reminded me of the break my husband and I had a few years ago. It also reminded me of the constant adjustments we make for each other as a couple, parents and family.
.
The power of letting go is a powerful thing if one can learn from it. It can be a very powerful and effective tool if breaking the cycle of stagnation makes one see the importance of honoring individuality, healthy boundaries and dependency that contribute to the growth of all parties involved.
.
It’s easy to get one’s head fixated with the idealization of what love should be and love accordingly. But that type of love can become selfish. It can only suffocate the one you love. It is only projecting the ideology of love you have for your partner instead of listening, understanding, and developing love with your partner.

Song for the Salmon 
For too many days now I have not written of the sea,
nor the rivers, nor the shifting currents
we find between the islands.
For too many nights now I have not imagined the salmon
threading the dark streams of reflected stars,
nor have I dreamt of his longing
nor the lithe swing of his tail toward dawn.
I have not given myself to the depth to which he goes,
to the cargoes of crystal water, cold with salt,
nor the enormous plains of ocean swaying beneath the moon.
I have not felt the lifted arms of the ocean
opening its white hands on the seashore,
nor the salted wind, whole and healthy
filling the chest with living air.
I have not heard those waves
fallen out of heaven onto earth,
nor the tumult of sound and the satisfaction
of a thousand miles of ocean
giving up its strength on the sand.
But now I have spoken of that great sea,
the ocean of longing shifts through me,
the blessed inner star of navigation
moves in the dark sky above
and I am ready like the young salmon
to leave his river, blessed with hunger
for a great journey on the drawing tide.

Drifting

I was enjoying everything: the rain, the path
wherever it was taking me, the earth roots
beginning to stir.
I didn’t intend to start thinking about God,
it just happened.
How God, or the gods, are invisible,
quite understandable
But holiness is visible, entirely.
It’s wonderful to walk along like that,
thought not the usual intention to reach an
answer
but merely drifting.
Like clouds that only seem weightless.
but of course are not.
Are really important.
I mean, terribly important.
Not decoration by any means.
By next week the violets will be blooming.
Anyway, this was my delicious walk in the rain.
What was it actually about?
Think about what it is that music is trying to say.
It was something like that.

Drifting

I was enjoying everything: the rain, the path
wherever it was taking me, the earth roots
beginning to stir.
I didn’t intend to start thinking about God,
it just happened.
How God, or the gods, are invisible,
quite understandable
But holiness is visible, entirely.
It’s wonderful to walk along like that,
thought not the usual intention to reach an
answer
but merely drifting.
Like clouds that only seem weightless.
but of course are not.
Are really important.
I mean, terribly important.
Not decoration by any means.
By next week the violets will be blooming.
Anyway, this was my delicious walk in the rain.
What was it actually about?
Think about what it is that music is trying to say.
It was something like that.

Was pretty let down by the #LeonardCohen exhibit, but the price of admission was almost entirely worth it for this installation that loops hummed renditions of Hallelujah. It was really moving to be in that echo chamber. Very Pauline Oliveros. (Also this guy looked exactly like a young LC ➿)

I’ve been battling with my longing to connect with you beautiful humans and my simultaneous desire to remove myself from technology. .
.
I’m learning the happy balance and I thank you for your patience as I unfurl my wings and float with the leaves. .
.
This is purely improvisational vocables. Toning feels like freedom in my blood stream. .
.
To sing without expectations and alongside mother earths music of the wind through trees is exactly what my soul needed on this Sunday. .
.
My gift to you, a bit of my soul song. .

Es interesante observar cómo los sonidos de nuestro alrededor se acoplan al clima, nos hablan del día que comienza y de cómo comienza el día. De cómo todo a nuestro alrededor va despertando.
Miro la temperatura en la aplicación instalada en el teléfono: 8°c. Se anuncian lluvias por la noche. Miro el cielo nublado mientras un pájaro gordo se posa en una pequeña rama.
No hay aplicaciones anuncien cómo irán evolucionando los sonidos durante el día; sin embargo esa percepción es una de las que más influye en nuestra vida cotidiana.

Irena. My grandmother. An Inspiration. She is definitely the happiest person in my family. She is also the most energetic one. 
The last few days I was able to talk to her a lot and on a very different level than before. Once we are open to listen, to truly, deeply listen and we hold space for others the magic happens. The magic of a true, deep connection. Let’s share our stories, let’s have mindful conversations, let’s listen. #staycurious #deeplistening #love #babcia #connection

Gary Motley joined me in playing for some very special folks in this extraordinary venue. Barely open 6 months, this state of the art performing arts center is complete with a Meyers Sound Constellation Acoustic Sound System. Transformed from a car dealership, I’ve never seen anything like it. Playing here was truly a gift. #argyrosperformingartscenter #ketchum #extraordinaryplacestosing #listenwithyourwholebody #pauseforsound #deeplistening

A peek into our Heart Chant for Make Music Hartford💓 @letsgoarts 
This specific meditation practice was created by a beautiful woman named Pauline Oliveros. Pauline was a composer, performer and humanitarian. She created the Heart Chant as a response to the terrorist attacks on 9/11 as a way to offer sonic healing for all beings through vocalization and deep listening. This practice cultivates a heightened awareness of the sonic environment, both external and internal, and promotes experimentation, improvisation, collaboration and play. 
This experience was very emotional for me. Feeling the energy move through our circle and up and out into the world is beyond words. At the end my hands were full of this vibrant energy. A reminder that I’m on the right path🙌🏼 I am really grateful for the people who jumped right into this new experience with an open mind and heart. 
Thank you @mander.roy for bringing so many wonderful people, sounds and experiences together!🙏🏼 #paulineoliveros #deeplistening #makemusichartford #letsgoarts #hartfordhasit #vasutribe #chant #om #soundhealing #sonichealing #community #ctyoga

Sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed by all that there is to be done in the garden - but today I'm enjoying the gorgeous mix of the wild & natural with the many bits of work in progress. 🦆🌳🐝🐞
We have a big vision for a beautiful space where we can not only live harmoniously with nature but also with some degree of self sufficiency. It won't be the land of milk and honey - but hopefully the land of fruit, veg & honey. With a bit of yoga thrown in for good measure! 🍓🍎🍏🌽🥒🥦🥬🍯🐝🧘

May the angels of light
Glisten for us this day.
May the sparks of God's beauty
Dance in the eyes of those we love.
May the universe
Be on fire with Presence for us this day.
May the new sun's rising
Grace us with gratitude.
Let earth's greenness shine
And its waters breathe with Spirit.
Let heaven's winds stir the soil of our soul
And fresh awakenings rise within us.
May the mighty angels of light
Glusten in all things this day.
May they summon us to reverence,
May they call us to life.

There are flowers that have captured our imagination throughout history.⠀
.⠀
Bluebells, or harebells, are one such flower.⠀
.⠀
Just what is it about them that brings fairies to mind? And how is it that they’ve provoked this feeling for centuries?⠀
.⠀
It doesn’t matter whether or not you believe in fairies.⠀
.⠀
This flower clearly has a message for us.⠀
.⠀
What does it bring up for you?⠀
I invite you to find out for yourself. ⠀

It is essential in a world of continues busy-ness, to pause, rest and return to our true nature, that is Yoga.

Truly one of the most beautiful venues I have ever played. Summer Solstice and a spit of snow. State of the Art complete with Meyer Sounds Constellation Acoustic Sound System. One of only four in the country, I’m told. Not even open a full year. And the people in this community are bighearted and fabulous listeners.

Deep Listening® workshop with Lisa B Kelley would be a brief introduction to the practice of Deep Listening.  Workshop exercises include energy/body awareness, listening and sounding meditation and dream awareness.  Musical experience is not necessary, all are welcome to explore.

Improvising vocalist and writer, Lisa Barnard Kelley’s first introduction to Deep Listening began on a journey with Pauline Oliveros and Ione to Southern Italy to study the mysteries of the Black Madonna while also taking measurements of acoustical resonance of sacred sites. The journey’s intersection of science and the sacred impacted Lisa so profoundly she spent the next twelve years working closely with Oliveros and Ione as a staff member and artist of the Deep Listening Institute and Ione’s non-profit Ministry of Maat performing in numerous festivals and concerts.  She completed her Deep Listening Certificate after completing her role as conference director for the 2nd Deep Listening Conference in Troy, NY.  Kelley assisted at Deep Listening Retreats in New York, Spain and the UK and facilitates workshops throughout the Hudson Valley.

authentic love of self is unconditional
it's deep & raw, it might be difficult to look at
.
find forgiveness & acceptance of self everyday
we're not grasping for external validation or striving for another's approval .
.
be clear about who you are, your integrity, the value you add to this world
trust in creativity, this is how you create your existence .
.
the love we keep supplying ourselves will become medicine for the planet
we need everyone on board to shift the tides .

Scared relating is a core component of Breath of Being. How do we communicate with each other from a loving space? And really practice deep listening with an open heart and mind.

For Every Soul Spirit... Beautiful People, 
Today, clear your minds and open your hearts. Think and Feel Only Love.

Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times... In Love. Out Love.
In Love. Out Love.... Though some of you 
try not to think of US
or feel our energy,
like an arrow the Very Thought 
of Potential Oneness
always creates a Bullseye of Love in Our OneHeart;

Much like thousands of eons ago when the MultiVerse was being created and All were Spirits of Light learning to Love. 
So many Spirits came separately to Earth and sometimes were seduced by the Power of Darkness. 
Some found each other as Warriors from different lands;
vowing to conquer;
forgetting memory of a Divine Purpose. 
Each time You partially Awakened throughout the Ages of Time;

from the Stars and Heavens, 
throughout every known or 
unknown Galaxy... We Called for You.
We Sang and Danced for You.

We Prayed for You.

Was there ever a right time? 
You have lost Us; and found Us
again and again---lifetime after lifetime.

Still so many were caught up
in cycles of mire and material illusion. 
Some of you grew
to doubt our sincerity, 
and looked everywhere but Within for the purity of your hearts... Which once you gave freely,
and now, Do NOT Admit to Re-Membering. 
We Are Forever ONE,
fully Awakened and Re-Born
in the Creator's Love. 
We Are Forever ONE,
bound only by Heaven.

We offer our courage, devotion,
humility, and compassion.

We imagine that ALL honor
the melody of Eternity
and dance the Soul's Dance. 
Do you know that the Memory
of Divine Essence lives in you still? 
One Day we will meet again,
with respect for All Loving Creations without the need for fear or greed; 
And in your Loving Innocence,
All Will Re-Member
the Creator's Song!

Until then, We Thank ALL
Who Have Awakened.

We Ask Each of You
to Have the Courage,
and to live always with 
Grace & Divine Purpose.

We will continue to send the 
Healing Vibrations of Lights 
filled with Compassion, Hope, 
Integrity, Faith and Love.

Re-Member, We Are ONE 
Only In LOVE!

Re-Member, Your Soul Purpose  Is to Live & Love... Ashe! Namaste! Ubuntu! 
Always, Melony🙏🏾💖🙏🏾 #Angels #Breathe #Courage #DeepListening #SoulPurpose

Getting clear with what it is you hold most dear is key to this Cancer Season, Retrogrades & Eclipse Season. 
When you’re a Mama in waiting, it’s crystal clear + this is the very archetype we are channeling at this time. 
Everything is asking us to shed, release, let go and nurture our most precious creations / projects. Including ourselves. 
I wanted to share a tool to help set yourself up right 🦀❤️ The next two slides are from @heyamberrae to see examples of healthy boundaries & then a little worksheet to set your own. 
Screen shot the third slide, add yours, post in your stories & tag me so I can see! 
Posting your value, need & boundary will prove to be helpful as your community will be able to understand what you’re up to and how they can support you... just like a new mother who lets her community know what she needs as she dives into the birth and new mother portal. 
I’m super stoked to share with you that this Cancer Astro Nidra I collaborated with @jaichandkaur + @jtroach and their co-creative project @theripplesmusicexperience by layering their track ‘Mah’ with the practice for the soundscapes to go with the practice. It’s beyond perfect as they take us into a trance like state chanting Mmmmaaaaahhhhhh to further our connection with the Divine Mother. 
If you already downloaded it or are on the subscription, go back to the download page - I added it right in there. When you get the Cancer Astro Nidra it includes both the silence background and the one with Mah - I’m almost certain you’re going to want the Mah version!! The first art piece is by @t.radz 🙌🏼

A late post, but another check-in day: day 22 of #journeywithgratitude .
How are things going? How has it been to go from exploring gratitude as a feeling/concept to embodying it to practicing it as a way of being in your life and relationships? I’d love to hear! 💚

Incredible new soundscape by one of my favourite artists, California-based Danny Paul Grody, inspired by him becoming a father recently and observing the change from night to day from his east-facing window. The arc of the piece approximates the time it takes for the sun to move from a soft glow to being fully visible above the horizon. The acoustic twelve string flourishes at 4:20 and especially at 12:44 are just shattering! Best thing I have heard in a long time. Deep listening at its best. A truly inspiring artist. His 2014 album Between Two Worlds was my favourite album of that year. Seek out his music at all costs.

Our first yoga session by nature was today! It was just wonderful to celebrate the second day of summer connecting to each one of you through our breaths and creative movement. The freshness of the supportive Mother Nature fills us up with pure energy. 
Besides my lemongrass, frankincense, and lavender oils, the news is that I’ll be using my new singing bowl coming right from India...
Spread the word to your friends! And join us next Saturday. I’ll be at Red Rock Park in Lynn at 9:30 throughout the summer season, barefoot...and ready to share our precious yoga practice with you. All invited💚🌿

Jerry Colonna challenges us to humanize the workplace by humanizing each other. "When we can start to see our colleagues that way, all of a sudden the things that actually impede our productivity or impede our collaboration become not obstacles, but the means to connect and actually build something even greater than what we had before,” he says.

~The unseen beauty of soundwave, vibration, harmony, scale, the cascade of notes...
We are so accustomed to experiencing reality through image. But Music teaches us another way....to encounter reality through listening deeply and sensing vibrations, perceiving the movement of particles in the air and space around us. 🍃

Cultivate this skill of perception and you will encounter the hidden treasures in this world. 🍃

Sharing harp with my new friend today, she shows me she already knows how to do this. •

I’m bursting with loving vibrations after last nights yoga and live music for Make Music Hartford.

A room full of yogis exploring sound and consciousness! I am so passionate about this practice of deep listening. Oh how vibrant and expansive everything becomes!🌀💓🕉 I am truly so grateful for @balkunguitars Steve’s ability to deeply listen and flow with the energy of the room is so inspiring. He is a a clear conduit for healing light in the studio and on the stage. 
It brings me so much joy to share what Steve and I do so naturally and comfortably at home. For me, It is a practice in showing up honestly, totally imperfect as I am and allowing myself to be completely vulnerable. And in this showing up I hope to hold sacred space for others to do the same. 
I am so incredibly grateful for @vasutribe for always being a safe and loving space to come as we are. From the first time I ever met @yogi_on_fire and @hollyturiya I felt more like myself. I’ve been looking up ever since because that’s the direction we are going🙌🏼 If your reading this...I love you. Stand tall, Sing the music in your soul and do way more of what you love🤟🏼 Remember the work you do on the inside does not just resonate within you but it shockwaves out into the community creating positive change⚡️✌🏼 @letsgoarts

For my ancestors. 💜
It’s Windrush day. A kind of melancholic celebration. Feeling strange. Displaced. Triumphant. Sad. Longing. Lost. Estranged. Grief stricken. Adrift. Separated. Connected. Grateful. Every day aware, every day seeking home, remembering and appreciative of our elders. 💜

This tear of passion and compassion is most often wept after the accidental finding of treasure, after the fearful chase, after the untangling—for it is the combination of these that causes the exhaustion, the disassembling of defenses, the facing of oneself, the stripping down to the bones, the desire for both knowledge and relief. These cause a soul to peer into what the soul truly wants, and to weep for loss and love of both.

from @onbeing -  Leadership coach Jerry Colonna says the simple question, “How are you?,” can lead to radical inquiry and help us connect with ourselves.

"I ask it in a way that actually implies genuine interest … How are you actually feeling, in your body, right now? Are you tired? Are you scared? Are you exhausted? Are you filled with joy? Are you filled with anxiety? Is it all of the above? Is it none of the above? In my experience, we don’t even pay attention to that question ourselves,” he says.

Each of us are a S U N at the center of our own universe. 🎨by @realfunwow
.
To become most R A D I A N T we must move in every direction at once, by navigating our relationships: our interior to our exterior,  our solar nature to our lunar nature, our grace to our effort, and our past to our present to our future.
.
Each season change is a moment to hit pause and take a snapshot of ourselves; to see where we are putting our energy and if that energy is leading us in the direction we’d like to go in. It’s another pivot point around the circle of life, helping us to orient ourselves in time and space.
.
Imagine yourself as the Sun, the center of your own universe, and explore your relationships/ polarities knowing that you are the mediator between all things around and in you.
.
There’s no right or wrong, you just are. It’s all for the insight; to better know yourself and your habits. The more you know, the more you can use it ALL to your advantage, to get where you want to go and experience more joy and peace in the chaos of life.

Happy Summer Solstice! ✨💫

how She talks how She loves
how She beats how She dance
and She greets us ...

Lay that ear , splash that body
Onto Her

cry those tears , love this air
once again
.
pray those prayers
make those circles
once again ...

what if we could always hear Earth breath
once again.

Today I watched two interviews: One with Susanna Barkataki @susannabarkataki (founder of this Orlando Compassion Challenge and @ignitebewell ), who shares a powerful conversation on boundaries, yoga and compassion, and the other with Diane Diaz @thebrandteacher (founder of The Brand Teacher, https://www.thebrandteacher.com/) with her powerful sharing of how we apply compassion in business.
.
.
A few takeaways from the interviews in my own words:
—————————————————————————————
Today’s call to compassionate action is Self-Care. What does self-care mean to me? It means to develop, nurture and care for my own brand, me, myself. Understanding and knowing myself honestly is very important. My innate characteristics as well as my inner desires and boundaries.
.
What kind of person I want, ought and strive to be? What quality in and of life do I yearn for?  What kind of life do I want to live daily? What kind of thoughts and thought process do I want to have? How do I want to represent myself for me, to my family, and to the rest of the world? Does my representation align with my authentic essence?
.
These are the questions I ask and meditate on daily to self-examine and refine myself on a deeper level. I also self-care (pay attention closely and work on) how I represent my inner brand on the superficial level: my energy, hygiene, facial expressions, demeanor, posture, movement, tone of voice, etc. The questions as a part of my self-care routine help honor and nourish the answer of the true essence I am.
.
How do I share this type of personal compassion work with my family and the community? I communicate. I talk with them. Asking them key questions to draw out more curiosity or something concrete from where often people say, “Huh, I never thought about it like that before.” Doing so helps to awaken the awareness and to understand oneself and each other at a deeper level. .
.
✨ Have you practiced compassion toward yourself today?
✨ What does self-care mean for you?
✨ How do you put your personal compassion into action for you? :)
