Grounding Myself in Life Again…

Mother and Calf in my top paddock

“Go to foreign countries and you will get to know the good things one possesses at home.”
~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

 

I’ve spent the past five days running a meditation retreat. It was a fabulous course, and I was totally absorbed in a world of ritual, magic and spiritual connection.

The Crystal Grid in the middle of our meditation circle at the retreat.

But today I want both feet on the ground.  Today I want to feel warm arms around me, and sunshine on my face, the ocean between my toes, and a coffee in my hands.

Today I’m going to connect with the things that are most precious to me about being human. My loved ones, and my sense of home.

My camera-shy husband, Ben ♥

I’m going to hold Ben’s hand all day, and keep him close, because I missed him so.

Charlie Dog ♥

I’m going to hug my old Charlie Boy and whisper in his ear over and over how much I love him, and shower him in cuddles and pats.

Bert, waiting for me to take him on an adventure outside…

I’m going to run through the paddocks with Bert, chasing the birds, watching the cows, paddling through the cold creeks and then sunning ourselves in the deep, warm grass in sunlit fields.

Lattes and words on the page

I’m going to sip lattes and write, because I have missed writing with a physical ache, and in all my own personal meditations, it was at the back of my mind.

My beautiful Nana ♥

And I’m going up to the hospital to hold my Nana’s hand and whisper “I love you”‘s in her ear as well.

This is what matters to me. Family, farm, animals, writing, and that sense of being home in my heart that living in the Byron Shire gives me.

No work for me today.  I shall not open an email, nor look at my phone. Today is my day for reconnection to the things that make my life precious.

I’m wishing for you a day of heart reconnection and grounding yourself in love as well.  Much love from my heart to yours ♥ xx

  1. That is so beautiful Nicole, family is so precious. You have a wonderful day just to be you, and have a georgous birthday tomorrow. Much love Helena xxx

  2. I so love reading your posts everyday. This one is very apt for me.
    I am off to Saudi Arabia with my Husband for 2 years leaving everything and everyone behind me. Feel very sad and a great sense of loss, but at the same time an excitement of meeting beautiful people who will further enrich my life. Thank you for sharing the love.

  3. Good for you, just what you were needing, I’m quite sure. I like the picture of Ben in, that’s how I feel when someone points a camera at me. Having a day doing all these things and ignoring emails and phone calls sounds like bliss.
