Your Inner Garden
Everyone has an inner life, an awareness that goes beyond the physical experience. There is a sense of infinity, of safety, of love. It’s a place of retreat; a haven where you can revel in your authentic self. It’s a a secret garden of self-love, creativity, imagination, and connection to a higher consciousness.
If events surrounding your estrangement spin out of control, when you just can’t understand what happened and how to heal the rift, it’s a good idea to mentally retreat. Build an inner temple, a place within you that understands you are more than your personality, your ego, your joys, and sorrows. You benefit by taking a birds-eye view of your life as a whole and from that, you gain clarity and a comprehensive perspective by merging the past and present.
Welcome the time alone as an opportunity to attune to your true self, dream your dreams, and reflect on what nourishes your spirit. This may stretch you, which may feel uncomfortable at first but, if you work at it, you will achieve a new mind-set – one of inspiration, delight, and connection to your own inner power.
