Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
It's one of the biggest selling points for a new home, isn't it? People always talking about "the location". Proximity to water, to nightlife, to "good" schools, to ... (fill in the blank).
I love my home state - and we did lot's of adventuring through the summer. However, travelling is something I like to do. My job (pre-COVID) had me travelling about once a month - to new places and spaces. After a year of COVID-based travel restrictions, I am feeling the pangs of wanderlust.
I am a homebody, and I enjoy being at home. And yet, I have been feeling this strong desire to change my location.
I remember a friend marveling at how "that physical space meant so much to you" after the studio closed it's doors. I hadn't really thought about it that way before. That memory is coming to the fore today and I've been mulling this "location change" and "location attachment" around in my brain, body + felt experience.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Our first physical space, of course, is our body.
I went to do my same old walk this morning, and new things happened. First - no other walkers. No cars in the cemetery where normally the road in and out is packed with cars. Second, I realized I could change my location (body) by moving it differently.
So I ran.
Huh. It worked. I realized I was changing my physical position + temperature, which are elements of location.
What are other elements? Visual of course. Probably why I am drawn to Instagram + Pinterest. I love the images that "take me away".
How can we create the things that we want into our felt experience?
I have a new idea. Stay Tuned.
You gotta feel it to heal it.
