My Time Capsule
My time capsule is a heart-shaped wooden box that I have painted and embellished. I have a number of items that have called to me over the last week, representing in one way or another some aspect of my relationship with wellness. A few things found their way into the capsule. A part of a puzzle… for physical wellness… and my desire to figure out what else is needed to meet the needs of my body. A few things from nature… a broken shell that has both the quality of air and water. And a river rock… for balance and stability. A marble that looks like the Earth… because I desire to get out doors more and to honor the cycles of the Seasons. Worry dolls… to remind me to let stuff go…and because dolls are playful and I understand the value of play when it comes to wellness.
I chose three cards from a Caroline Myss‘s Sacred Contract Cards. They are archetype cards which depict archetypes that want to join me on this journey of healing. The first is the Artist. This is a journey of Healing thru the Expressive Arts and it feels led by this part of myself. Next is the Queen…she is that part of me that can get a bit hoity-toity but which wants to mature into a gracious leader. And lastly, the Hedonist…the tendency to disregard the need for balance in the celebration of life’s fineries.
The most important aspect of my time capsule comes in part of the box’s embellishments. It is a reminder that the most incredible treasure of my life today and in the future is something that doesn’t fit in the box.
I wanted to close by saying thank you to those of you who are taking this journey with me. I know that there are many of you who read and never comment. Or those who want to create but don’t have the time or haven’t made space yet for it in your life. Still, I feel your support and presence. So, come along! Silently…or with loud celebration. Let your Creative Spirit dream on these activities because even if you are not creating in the real world, just imagining your way thru these activities just might have an effect on your wellness. And who knows, maybe you will grow brave enough to type out a few words some day to say….I want some of that too.
