In "The four - Fold Way," Angeles Arrien suggests that each of us ask the following questions and answer those that apply to us. "Where in my life did I stop dancing? Where in my life did I stop singing? Where in my life did I stop being enchanted with stories? Where in my life did I become uncomfortable with the sweet territory of silence?"
The logical next step would be to consider how you might regain what you've lost touch with. There are countless gifts that accompany dancing with abandon, singing your heart out, allowing yourself to be completely absorbed in a story while fully open to its lessons, and able to embrace silence as a trusted companion.
So how about if each time you have some time alone you do at least one of the following:
Dance around the house
Spend some time outdoors listening to the wind
Sing your heart out
Write in your journal
Draw in your journal
Create a collage
Close your eyes and spend 5 minutes quietly following your breath
Work on your memoir
Close your eyes and listen to meditative or soul expanding music
Read a short story someone recommended
Get in touch with the one who still lives inside of you who used to burst into song and dance spontaneously and who unreservedly believed in magic...
