I wake up to a spectrum of mauve every morning. The iridescent rays stretch and encompass my floor to ceiling windows and I feel instant warmth. This morning hug of mine is so lovely and transmits bolts of energy even longer lasting than a shot of espresso. And every morning even with an occasional overcast sky, the birds wake up to the same aura. The flock start its daily commute from the majestic Laguna Canyons and after some frolicking along the way I watch the birds fly and eventually disappear into the radiant horizon of the Silverado and Modjeska Canyons.
What a wonderful way to commute. Since anatomically as a species we are not able to enjoy the marvel of natural flight, why not bring nature’s wonders into your nest. Even if you do not have floor to ceiling windows, brighten up your life with art especially works you created yourself. Take advantage of any natural light that draws into your nest. Natural light uplifts and nourishes your soul but on an overcast day a cuddly couch can do the trick. Open the window and invite in the breeze even if it’s a crack. You’ll be amazed what a breeze even a cool crisp one can do for your inner balance and peace of mind. Bring home a shell from a visit to the beach. A shell is a perfect unique product of nature–exactly how I feel about my little ones (most of the time). Our favorite pastime is foraging for rocks especially prehistoric ones. My little paleontologists have quite the collection in our nest. Rocks are engraved with beautiful layered hues of time so why not show off the evolution of the Earth in your space. Discover and incorporate your connection to the outdoors and enjoy a better connection with everyone in your nest. And if your nest is anything like mine, tiny, well then everyone is always within a hug’s reach.
