There is a gentle voice inside of me that is whispering, "Come home, Come home!” This voice is reminding me that it is my birthright to feel at home here on this planet - at home within my body, my relationships, my environment and within the service that I'm offering to the world.
We usually associate "feeling at home" with being physically in a space where we can be ourselves, where we're allowed to lay down our masks, our bras, put on jogging pants and be real.
But "feeling at home" is not confined to the space within the four walls that you own. Home can be anywhere - a place and a moment in time where you feel completely relaxed and accepted.
I'm sure you can relate to this. Sometimes you meet a stranger and instantly "feel at home" with this person. Or it happens that you travel to a foreign country or city and you feel like you’re arriving at home although you’ve never been there before. Something feels familiar: the smells, the colours, the sounds. Somehow you’re at ease but your mind can’t make sense of it.
It’s usually when we follow our intuition and go with the flow that we meet people and find places that feel natural to us.
Try to tap into this energy of "feeling at home" for a moment. If it’s possible close your eyes and try to recreate this feeling in your body. Imagine how you're coming home after a long day out and think about the things you usually do after you enter your home. Maybe you stretch out on the couch, maybe you brew a cup of tea, maybe you change your clothes or put on your favorite music. Imagine how it feels to be at home and let this feeling of relaxation sink deep into every cell of your body.
Now think about your every day life and see if you can find other places, situations and people that create this sensation of feeling at home within you. These are the moments where you can be natural without having to pretend to be someone that you’re not.
Think about your relationship with your partner, your friends and your kids. Can you be 100% yourself there?
Think about your job. Does your job and the environment you’re working in feel natural to you?
What about your body? Do you feel at home within your body?
And what about your lifestyle? Does your lifestyle reflect who you are?
Imagine your every day life in front of your inner eye and pay attention to the areas where you don’t feel completely at ease. Now there are two reasons why you don’t feel at home in these areas. It’s either because you don’t belong there and you’re holding on to something that you’re not, or it's because you don’t allow yourself to be who you are with other people or in certain environments.
I want you to go to the place that you’re struggling with the most and I want you to ask yourself: What change needs to happen so I can feel at home there? Allow yourself to imagine the best possible outcome for you and dwell in this feeling a little bit longer.
What action can you take to feel at home within the area that you’re struggling with?
If it’s your body, connect with it more often and ask it: What do you need right now?
If it’s your job, pay attention to the tasks that feel the most natural to you and ask yourself: Am I working in the right field? Can I concentrate more on the things that feel easy and exciting to me?
Maybe it’s possible to delegate tasks that don’t feel natural to you or you could use your skills in a different environment.
If it’s a relationship, remember that you can’t change anybody, you can only change yourself, so ask yourself: What can I do to create a feeling of relaxation in this relationship? Or what shouldn’t I do to create a feeling of home?
Listen to your intuition and trust your feelings. Surrender to the people and places that make you feel at home and spend time there as much as possible. Your mind will give you a lot of arguments why you shouldn’t follow the pull, because your mind doesn’t care about feelings. It cares about facts and disagrees with everything that doesn’t make logical sense.
Pay attention to what triggers a feeling of relaxation and happiness deep within you and don’t feel guilty for turning away from the things and people that don’t allow you to be yourself.
