Dear Awesome Woman,
What are you wanting to welcome into your life? A new relationship, a new home, a new business, a new way of being or seeing yourself? Weave your own Welcoming Nest to honor and energize that desire.
A nest is a sacred place to give birth to your dreams, hopes and yearnings. With loving intention you can nurture that inspiration by using your creative gifts to craft a nest – a vessel shaped and weaved by your own hands. You are welcoming something precious from your soul; something vulnerable from deep within your core.
Each client who has weaved and crafted feels a similar feeling of peace and meditative grace in this process. And each woman’s experience is individual as well:
The weaving was very much a meditative process for me as well as fun, and was very much a nice balance of both.
… I take time each day to visit my nest. Some days I simply run my finger around the outside of the nest, feeling its soft strings, raffia and ropes entwined in a contradiction of chaotic order. Other times I stand over the nest and set an intention for the day as I rearrange its contents in an attempt to stimulate its chi. Every so often I add something to my nest from nature like a forsythia branch or a chive leaf fresh from the garden. But on special occasions or a nice sunny day, I take my nest with me outdoors and explore creative places for it to bathe in the light. And in doing so, I nourish mySelf in nature’s lap and all troubles slip quietly away. Sitting in the sun beside my nest, anything seems possible, almost easy, Sitting in the sun beside my nest, I welcome the possibilities in.
I’m very grateful that Meryl’s artful and gentle facilitation style allowed me the space for my nest, and reconnection with nature, to emerge. Thank you Meryl!
