    Not be limited by fear, complacency, or walls I’ve erected to keep others out or in. Take risks and explore. Not settle for smallness

    Life is like a video game if you really think of it. You got to take care of yourself to not lose XP but think about all the fun moments that you get in the game, it’s the same in life

    I feel alive when I go out in nature. I really enjoy hiking and kayaking and get a sense of peace from it. I also enjoy spending time in worship, singing on Sundays really helps me feel connected. Finally, exercise exhausts me in the moment, but I often feel more charged and energized aferwards. So those are some things that just me feel more physically present and connected to the world.

    I am holding three keys in my hand, each to a door I find sacred.

    The problem is never the freedom, time to unlock those doors.

    To experience a greater sense of aliveness, I can dig deeper into the teachings of the ancient and modern mystery schools, as these can help me to understand the secrets of the universe and to have wonder about great knowledge that few people have been historically privy to.

    I can experience a greater sense of aliveness by spending more time in nature, quiet and alone, and absorbing the feeling that I am a part of it.

    Be in the now. Be aware of all I have to be grateful for. Eat healthy. Get enough sleep.
    Go on a adventure.

    I take a deep breath, let it out in a long slow sigh and centre myself in my body.

    Mixing it up helps me sometimes… just simple things like sitting in a different room, doing a different task, listening more carefully to someone without judging that I think I know what they are going to say or mean, going out when I can (but now we are being careful), preparing different foods, learning about something we thought we had no interest in, and being present and relishing the moments with gratitude.

    Hopefully we’ll soon get more snow so that I can get into my cross country skiing. I find that the stillness, solitude of nature and feeling my heart pound as I glide brings a feeling of being alive and appreciating life

    A change in our environment helped this summer. We took one day a week and just went somewhere like a state park, a county park, and sometimes we took the dog, sometimes not…..I felt so alive walking on the trails, looking down on the lake, even driving there gave me a sense of aliveness.
    It’s winter here, so I need to find somewhere else that will give me that same respite.

    Pause, Look, Listen, breath deeply often. Taking your focus off of the goal and being present to and enjoying the journey.

    Sometimes just breaking out and away from certain routines, daily habits that serve no real purpose is enough. A change in scenery, even locally, is enough to help me see, hear, and feel things differently. It’s not rocket science, nor expensive, the hardest part is just doing it with purpose. Another thing is just looking up, up at the sky to take in the expansiveness of it, and look into the clouds and watch how they change gradually. And while looking up, look to see if you’re able to see the horizon, that place where the earth and the sky seem to come together. We know also that some indigenous peoples experience the horizon as a spiritual experience and place, and give it its own name and recite specific prayers and chants while observing where earth and sky come together. How can that not make anyone feel more alive?

    What I’m already doing now… wake up grateful, expect miracles, pause to take in a great view (the sky, the ocean, sunrises/sunsets, birds chasing each other, etc), laugh, hold hands, enjoy each bite of food, and love with all of my heart.

    My work ing in a Tissue Bank is a daily reminder of my aliveness. Riding a rollercoaster does it too😉
