If can be difficult to know what to do for others when faced with a tragedy. Especially when we are just removed from the difficult time and yet are still impacted by the loss. And, when we are so in it, we forget to take a breath ourselves. Our community is grieving. And, many are grieving beyond our sweet town and for different reasons.
When faced with various feelings, I turn to stillness and love. So, I offer you one way to support yourself and others. I will be holding a guided Loving Kindness Meditation for anyone who wishes to join. We will spend 15-30 minutes in meditation, raising the vibration for ourselves and others that we may know love and kindness in our hearts as well as share love and kindness with others.
Logistics: Following is a link to a Zoom call in which you may tune into via audio only and hear me guide you through this meditation from the comfort of your home. You will need to download Zoom, for free, on your phone, tablet or computer in order to listen in. I encourage people to come together and listen on speaker as a family and/or group of friends. Or you may pop on some headphones, curl up and relax into the mediation. Please feel free to share with others.
Sara Nelson is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

My 2020 word is COURAGE.
My 2020 statement is COURAGE IN CREATIVITY AND CONNECTION.
WhaI always find it funny how we expect to wake up in a new year and feel different. As my daughter and I chatted this morning about her fun with friends last night, she said, "It's a new year and I don't feel any different.". We were chatting about "planned fun" also called "forced family fun" around here. Expectations are high that this will be the.best.new.year.celebration.ever. Then we wake up on the 1st and not much has changed.
For me, I am still carrying loads that I just don't need to carry. However, I started my new path yesterday with some changes in my routine. I am making choices to move forward on my path. I sat down to take stock of where I am in my life. Seems heavy? It's not when you realize that you have a choice to move the needle. I use the Wheel of Life to take note. Now those stepping into work with me this year will also use it. I have attached it here to download for free, just requires an email to grab it. Share it with your fam and friends. I then make sure my goals are reflecting my focus. For me, health is number one.
I don't know how the year will unfold in our journey together at Sara Bird Nelson Healing Arts. I have some ideas around cultivating connection - stay tuned. As I mentioned in my monthly email, I made a plan in September and scratched in December as it simply did not reflect courage and creativity. If you want a first look at what's happening around here, email me get on the list at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is what I do know. 2020 will include the following:
All with courage, a spark of creativity and most importantly, connection. Connection to each of you. Connection to heart. Connection to home. Pure, vital connection.
Take some time to go over The Wheel of Life. Where do you want to focus your heart this year? What's your word or statement for 2020? Let's make it feel different. Let's make it ours. Let's create our life. I am here to support you on this journey. Let's journey together.
Blessings for an amazing 2020.
