These past few weeks have been full of instances of coming full circle. For myself, clients, and friends.
One question I often get that relates to coming full circle is "What does wholeness look like? or feel like?"
It's such a metaphorical word to use in describing humans, human nature, and being in touch with all of yourself: body, mind, and spirit. (Which I talked about in a previous blog post)
I am not able to tell you what wholeness means to you specifically, as you have a unique perspective on your life, but I can share how it feels for me to in a place of full wholeness, connected to my most authentic self.
There are actual, discernible feelings (sensations I experience) when I am in a coherent, right relationship with all of myself. Here are a few:
*I feel more energized, have more energy that flows throughout me. Not adrenaline (the fight or flight mode). This energy is more grounded and feels akin to excitement.
*Life flows easier - there is no concept of linear time such as trying to do too much, because it all just works out somehow.
*I trust more.
*I feel safe.
* I exude joy and curiosity about life.
*There is a calmness and clarity around me and others can actually feel I am more balanced.
*I feel less segmented and revitalized: secure, centered, and at peace with myself here and now.
* I am less affected by external circumstances and news. The external world is still there, but is no longer pushing and pulling against me - it's just there! I am aware it's there, but it doesn't bother me.
So, when I am in a state of wholeness, I see it as having come back full circle to my truest self. The core/spirit of my being. It's very Zen :)
I hope this helps you discern how you feel when you are seeking wholeness.
