Lisa Erickson: Coming Home to Your Self

For the month of January, the theme of this site is an exploration of the energy of home.

Home as a sacred container in which we feel comfortable resting, creating, connecting, experimenting, celebrating.

Home as a physical body that transports us throughout our day, host to our heart, mind and soul.

Home as Mother Earth…as Universe...this place where we live.

Home as a heart experience not specific to a physical location….a feeling of comfort, safety, security, bliss.

As we feel into this energy together, you may find yourself quite comfortable with the exploration, you may find yourself at an edge. It is my request that you share from the space that you are in with an understanding that your perspective and experience enriches the quality and feel of this explorationfor all whom read and walk these energetic steps together.

Today, I am delighted to share this Facets space with Lisa Erickson!

Thank you for sharing, Lisa!

As I listen to Lisa’s message, I am struck by the affirmation within it.

(By the way, I love Lisa’s energy and insights – she is someone whom I trust as a teacher and guide.  I read each of her articles, listen to her meditations and have participated in one of her classes.)

This year, the message I am receiving consistently is to ground my energy into my body. To continue to practice energy movement and to tap into flow *and* to bring all of the practices that I love into my physical home and that energy into my physical body.

Yes, to continue to practice “out there” but to make sure I ground it all here *in my home*, first.

As  I guide students through this current session of I Believe in Magic: Home edition, we are exploring the concept of intending each block of time, each physical parameter, as a sacred container.  

When we can feel our selves, and all in our world, as sacred, the energies of respect and care are naturally prevalent. 

I love that Lisa’s meditation invites us to center into exploring *home* in our body, heart and mind.

May you share, dear reader, as you feel into the idea of *home* within your body, heart and mind, what arises within?  Is this familiar and comfortable to you or something that is new and perhaps a bit of a stretch? (when you share, you inspire)

Thank you for your presence!

Much peace and abundant love,


I am so excited to share this new complimentary series with you, beginning February 1, 2014 – 28 Days of Connection: A Celebration of Love.  To register, please click the title link.

  1. Hi Joy, thanks so much for allowing me to share this, and for facilitating all of these thoughts on home this month…

  2. Thank you Lisa and Joy. Good to see you on video. This idea of being at home in my body has been a big theme of my own path. Because of childhood trauma I have never felt safe in my body. I have made great strides in this and I hope in 2014 to move deeper into this. I also really like this idea of the spiritual journey as one of coming home to ourselves.

    • Thank you for sharing, Jean.

      This concept of home in our bodies is one I will be exploring in depth in this space throughout this year. I understand the “not feeling safe” in our bodies – I, too, had childhood trauma and then patterns that continued well into adulthood that made my body feel like the last place I wished to be. The “good news” is there are many practices one may explore that can shift that energy. Lisa specializes in this type of healing – and I trust her wisdom and guidance – which is why I asked her to participate in this series.
