The Self Care Challenge Day 5: Be Your Own Medicine

50 min
What You'll Need:
Mat, Strap, Block (2)
Welcome to Day 5! Inspired by Aparigraha, or non-grasping, lets draw our senses inwards for nourishment by developing a taste and appreciation for our own medicine. Building on the previous days, these practices are designed to help cultivate our inner resources and hone the skills of self-trust. Together, we become aware of when we turn outside ourselves for sustenance, and learn tools to soften our grip on life. You will feel more centered, empowered, and at ease with yourself and others.

Your journaling assignment for today is attached below, as well as a copy of the Chant Call and Response.

AAAHHH what a de-light-full experience to ungrip , loose the grasp and feel so soft...,as I opened my eyes after the meditation and my sight met the vast yard covered in snow with the morning sun glistening over and the many birds eating at the bird feeder,I experienced a much deeper connection (and still am as I write this) with the magic beauty of nature and just BEING in the experience. Thank you again Kelly for your gentle profound and sincere guidance!!
Already yesterday I let go of entertaining and distracting myself with Netflix shows as I cook and eat and do various chores. I'm committed to being mindful about this . I will abstain from checking facebook till next Monday and then I will make a new decision based on the feedback I got from the experience.
Hasta mañana :)

Yesssssss! What beautiful reflections, Astrid. It's amazing what opens up when we do let go of our preferred distractions for just a moment or two! Cannot wait to hear about what comes up after your facebook hiatus! xo!

Oh Kelly, THIS spoke to me. Yes, to being more aware and intentional about what I let in; books, podcasts, emails, courses, mailings, conversations, TV shows (except Grace and Frankie!!). Thank you again, for inviting such great self-study into our lives.
Big love to you.
