To find clarity of what nourishes, we must first decipher what we are choosing to nourish.
We must sift through our priorities and what we really want in this life. What are we comfortable letting go of? What must we let go of to create the time, space and energy to actually tend to our deepest values? We must learn to dance with the present moment and the big picture at the same time.
There are different realms in our lives to be nurtured and it is ultimately up to us to decided what we feed. It takes sifting through and finding balance, to make sure we are not losing our center, our footing, our clarity.
There are our loved ones. Our most cherished relationships. There is the realm of joy, laughter, simplicity and enjoying the physical realm of the earth and our bodies. There is the emotional realm and personal growth, working with our shadows and our deepest wounds and seeing where we are creating suffering and self-sabotage. There are our basic needs of survival - a roof over our head, food and water. Then there are our passions, our gifts, what we feel we have been given to share with the world. Those things we carry deep in our bones, our blood, our souls.
From here we must sift.
We must decided step by step what is most important. And then we can discern what will feed these pillar points in our lives. This is where the integrity emerges. It is one thing to know what we need, and hear the voice of our innate wisdom. It’s a whole other realm to truly honor it. To truly abide by it. It's delicate and voluptuous dance.
