Finding Your Walking Meditation
“When your world moves too fast and you lose yourself in the chaos, introduce yourself to each color of the sunset. Reacquaint yourself with the earth beneath your feet. Thank the air that surrounds you with every breath you take. Find yourself in the appreciation of life.” -ChristyAnnMartine
When was the last time you noticed the color of the sky above you? Or the last time you took a sacred moment to feel the pulse of the ground beneath your feet?
Do you remember what it feels like to feel the wind on your face? Or to hear the sound of your own heart beating in the gentle quiet of nature, the rhythm of your breath beginning to match the rhythm of the swaying brush? This is what it feels like to remember that you are alive. Sometimes, the simple reminder of how very alive we truly are allows us to let go of all of the things that we once were, no longer are, or may never be. In this moment, you are here, living and breathing in perfect imperfection. And in this very moment, that is more than enough.
Even the flowers who have not yet fully blossomed possess an invaluable presence and breathtaking beauty. A sunflower isn’t born with petals, yet every important moment of being alive is spent, with a quietly rooted stance and humble pride, turning its face toward the sun.
So take a moment this weekend. Take many moments. Paint your soul with the color of a sunset, awaken your being with the scent of fresh grass, set your heart free in the unpredictable magic of the wind. Breathe in the true essence of what it means to be here, grounded in this moment, and to be alive.
Wishing you vibrant moments of full of love and life,
