This coronavirus time in which so many of us are in isolation and are self-distancing can be a time of self-discovery, if we are open to ourselves. In the book “Exploring Energy Guidance Complete, My Journey“, there is a section named “Life Uplifted”. In this section, I explored things that are life-uplifting for me. The section explains:
Life-uplifting is a term that has so much meaning, and it can guide us if we let it. Choosing activities by asking “Is this activity life-uplifting?” could help differentiate between wasteful time-wasters and life-uplifters. What is a life-uplifting activity? Each person answers this question differently depending upon soulful likes and abilities…Identifying them can help keep focus when distractions overcome prudent choices.
When I wrote the book, I spent a lot of time figuring out activities that are life-uplifting for me. Now, I get distracted watching the news and waiting to see the latest headlines. I’m writing this blog post to help others explore their own life-uplifting activities and to remind me of mine. Here are some of mine that I listed in the book:
…writing about Spiritual Presence, connecting people to balance and healing…food: buying vegetables and fruit full of freshly harvested vitality at the local farmers market, preparing healthful and delicious meals for myself and for family and friends, appreciating the food, savoring the aroma and appearance of food prepared by others; dancing: with my dance-class women, at live music performances, during Energy Guidance Complete sessions, alone while listening to music that is lively or meaningful; singing with others and alone; walking: walking along lovely plant-filled paths, walking with family and friends, walking with my dog, walking to get somewhere and walking to be energized; hugging family and friends; experiencing intimacy with my husband; watching my children evolve; laughing and talking with loved ones and with non-acquaintances; …participating in community activities and celebrations; experiencing weather and seasons; crocheting blankets for my loved ones; planning family and community gatherings; …volunteering at local and regional events; …reading; participating in religious observances with my family and with my community; smiling; listening; empathizing; caring for my garden, my home, other people; visiting friends and family, the sick and the grieving; creating: crafts, atmospheres, and relationships; caring for my health and safety; cleaning public areas; appreciating everything: family, friends, community, conveniences, natural wonders, challenges, opportunities, and inherited skills and values; keeping myself focused on the activities that balance and uplift me.
I hope that you with take the time to explore your life-uplifting activities!
