Ordinary Sacred Moments 

I’ve been reflecting on the ordinary… all those little moments in life.

The stuff that life is really made of.

So how do I feel about ordinary?

When I was young I used to run away from it. I wanted big experiences, huge feelings, cathartic releases.

I wanted to achieve great things…

I wanted to be an enlightened yogini, a great writer, an amazing healer, a powerful witch.

But that was over 30 years ago…

And over the years as I learned more about life and psychology and slowly started embody my own body and being, getting grounded and mindfully within the moment – something shifted.

My relationship to ordinary changed.

 

I realised that those ordinary moments have become a real refuge for me – a moment to pause and check within what I’m really feeling and give myself space to honour it; a warm big hug with a person I love; a cup of my favourite earl grey tea early in the morning as I’m sitting in our little conservatory looking into the garden and listening to birds; a smile on a client’s face as they reconnect within and we sit in silence soaking up the moment; a walk by the sea with all those soothing sounds around.

Ordinary moments.
Fully experienced within my body.
Moments of powerful connection inside out.
Powerfully healing for me.

So…

How do you feel about ordinary?
Do you embrace it and make room for it or do you avoid it as much as you can?

I’d love to know.
