When I look at each experience
through the lens of natures kaleidoscope,
I see the beauty of perfect symmetry.
In all of my years of living, I had yet to purposely, with intent, roll down a hill.
So, I was sitting on the side of the hill, watching my children play down below, when it hit me that this was a perfectly wonderful time to roll down the hill.
(And, yes, this was yesterday!).
First, I went by myself–a bee flew in my ear, and I got pricky things in my shorts…but…it was fun :)
Then, we took turns going solo, all together, and in different sets of pairs. Each roll was completely different, yet all of them ended with lots of laughter!
When we were done, we stayed at the bottom of the hill, flat on our backs, looking at the park from this perspective. In a heap, just laughing.
If I apply this to life, I can turn any experience around (roll it) in my head, feel it in my heart and see with great clarity how it was meant to be exactly as it was in that moment. The pain turns to joy, the joy turns to gratitude, the gratitude invites exploration. Symmetry in life.
My “rollin’ down the hill” prompted me to share: 10 Insights to Invite You to Experience Nature’s Kaleidoscope.
1. It’s never “too late” for an experience. Once you hear the whisper, honor it by allowing it to become your reality.
2. Even if it’s not “in the plan”, it is absolutely do-able. When you release the plan and allow for unfolding, you are giving Universe the permission to delight you in unexpected ways.
3. Allow ample time and space for “nothing” so that *everything* may be experienced.
4. Sometimes when we open to an experience, we feel discomfort and even pain. If we open through those feelings, there is often abundant wonder and joy to be experienced.
5. Solitude is essential *and* community connections amplify the magic.
6. Laughter is the sound of the happiness of your heart, the inner peace of your soul. The most beautiful sound in the world.
7. Every experience may be a reflection to contemplate, if we allow the lesson to rise.
8. Learning may be delightful. Nature models for us the ease of honoring cycles. When we resist these cycles, we invite frustration, exhaustion, and discontent.
9. When we allow ourselves to “roll”; turn the day upside down, look at something from a different perspective, release our inhibitions and tap into flow…answers effortlessly rise.
10. Gratitude grows everything.
May you share a time “you rolled” and what is one “takeaway” that we might learn from your experience?
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Experiment. Explore. Experience.
