Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little sensory exercise. This practice is a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing, what we are experiencing, and what we are grateful for while more acutely tuning into our senses. It’s a whole heart exercise with plenty of bodily input, if you will. Because this practice has been so good for me, I want to encourage you to do it, too. Building some gentle reflection into our weeks is a nice way to stay grounded while maintaining some big picture perspective. So please join me in this week’s Friday Reflections (with each sense as your inspiration, consider how experiencing it impacted your week).
Here is my sensory round-up for the last week:
tasting :: lemony lentil soup, sweet potato, squash and black bean enchiladas, roasted chickpea and broccoli burritos. We are working our way through the Thug Kitchen cookbook. The flavors are incredible!
hearing :: thoughtful women grabbing hold of what they want for themselves at visionSPARK, brain blowing ideas in my own little skull.
smelling :: a new blood orange candle. Gosh, I love the warmth and scent of candles, especially in the winter. Also, all the fabulous scents from the Thug Kitchen recipes.
seeing :: gorgeous works of synergistic art at visionSPARK.
feeling :: bright-eyed, wide-eyed, and open-hearted. This new year has already been a great big eye opener for me.
wishing :: for a lovely start to the semester, to kindle the world with warmth, lush happiness.
What about you? What were your sensational experiences this week? Please share!
