There has been a theme with my coaching clients in the last couple weeks that has had my mind focusing on what fulfillment is?
Not just defining the actual word and how it relates to life, but channelling the tactile sense of what being fulfilled feels like.
The common descriptors I heard was:
- the feeling of satisfaction
- connection to
- giving and receiving
What would it feel like to be able to describe your life using those words? That list not only sounds good but feels good!
Fulfillment to me is akin to my All In Energy; different words but same essence. However it also led me to ask these questions:
What would it feel like to be fulfilled in all areas? or more fulfilled in my connection to:
- Gratitude or Wealth and Prosperity
- Community or Fame and Reputation
- Love or Love and Relationships (with self & others)
- Nurture or Health (Body, Mind and Spirit)
- Joy or Children and Creativity
- Reflection or Knowledge & Self Cultivation
- Career or Flow
- Spirit or Helpful People and Travel
If I had to quantify my personal level of fulfillment in the corresponding life areas of my bagua; where would it hash out?
What I learnt through this personal excavation and observation of my present, was that my focus on my fulfillment and/or All In Energy was growing and was being met in some areas but needed attention in others.
What a gift this exercise was.
I learned that when I checked in on my level of fulfillment around Love and specifically my relationship to Self, it was easy to rate it as “meh”. When I’m not consciously taking care of me then all my relationships are affected.
I’m an advocate for Self Love…and I can not pinpoint nor is it important to figure out when exactly I stopped my own practise. Recognizing that I needed to amp up the Love Energy and resume my own practise for myself was paramount.
Same goes for Nurture: Body, Mind, and Emotional. I had become disconnected and have been feeding my body rather than nourishing it, I have not been moving my body as I so love to do, and throughout this not choosing to nurture myself, has me seeking repair.
I miss doing bodywork, I miss teaching it, I miss being a student of the body. However much I miss that doesn’t compensate for stopping.
As synchronicity would have it, a friend and past client of mine, shared with me an email about an upcoming workshop. It didn’t take any contemplation for me to respond, “Yes I’m IN!”. I chose not to research what we were doing, I chose to come in cold, I just knew it would be good. And oh boy it was!
Not only did I get to reconnect with a former teacher of mine, but others I had trained with in the past! Plus had a lovely weekend with the friend who came to the workshop as well.
WIN WIN WIN
I was absolutely MELTed by the work, but also got back into what my body was telling me, and how best I can serve it. I invite you to MELT too!
Reflection also scored a “meh”, as I observed how I have some unmet intentions, unrealized goals, and unresolved issues that need forgiveness, peace, love and my attention.
Loose ends have a way of lingering, and I have begun the process of asking how best to tie those up. Having a resurgence of energy in the other two areas fuels me to bring closure and peace to that which has been left feeling undone.
No matter what, fulfillment comes from within.
Recognizing and accepting that, through that simple inquiry, that I can feel more fulfilled, especially in those three life areas and therefore I can attract more fulfillment into my life overall, and moreover want to. And I’ve also been more conscious about acknowledging the times and experiences in my day which make me feel fulfilled. That feels good!
I invite you to inquire:
