Is there something in your life that’s a bit intense, overwhelming or challenging right now?
Stress often creates a feeling of being “boxed in” and having nowhere to move. But no matter what is happening in the external world, third space is always available to us. Metaphoric images are portals to another realm that is abundantly loving and nurturing. Its transformative energies will shift you.
Close your eyes and imagine a vast, very peaceful desert terrain, so expansive that you can’t see the edges of it. Then imagine yourself being the desert terrain. You’re not looking at it anymore more—you are the desert plain. Stay with it for a few moments, until your body is quite comfortable in this expansive place. As you hold this place of expansiveness within your body, what happens to the overwhelm? It disappears, doesn’t it? We can’t hold peaceful expansiveness and overwhelm together in our bodies at the same time.
