Authentic Self meditation by: kuwa jasiri
Moment to Pause to honour your relationship to Self
After teaching a Elemental Meditation as part of metaDen’s Reparations Clinic participants asked How do I grow my mindful practice?
I am going to share my journey with you all. First I had to learn this journey is within myself for myself and will take all my life and perhaps lifelines after. My self work will affect generations past, present and future. As well as my younger, present and older Self.
Once I got that came the discipline to be kind, gentle and soft with myself along the way.
ASPECTS OF MY JOURNEY
Self Reflection: being able to notice/track aspects, emotions, thoughts and behaviours of Self
Connection to Nature: being outside, learning about plants and wild animals, growing plants, foraging plants, learning the cycles of life, finding comfort in Nature, connecting with plants/animals/elements while inside
Meditation: slowing down, going inward and being with just Self, visualizing for the future
Spirituality: learning about my ethnic based spiritual practices and integrating them into my life
Cultural Exploration: learning what I can, feeling into, honouring and asking for support from my Ancestry and the Higher Selves of my parents
Majick Practice: finding the majickal, whimsical, imaginative spaces inside Self and using them to better my world
Exercise: working out the body, mind and spirit.
Self Care: learning about my mind, body and spirit and how to nourish Self
Social Intimacy: sharing emotions and care. connection with friends, family, community, and neighbours
Boundaries: knowing what and how I need and expressing that to others
Therapy: many different types of therapy aide with connecting deeper with my body, releasing stored trauma and activating potential. harm reduction.
Rest: learning how to slow down, unplug, and listen to my body when to rejuvenate
Play: engaging my imagination, making up games, crafting and laughing to regain my sense of wonder and awe
I use a series of journals to document, track and reflect on my mindfulness journey. I also formed a community full of majikal Nature lovers who value mindfulness.
