In a household with two busy boys, life can get very hectic and overwhelming with endless ‘to do’ lists. The saying, “The days are long but the years are short” certainly rings true for us. On the days when life gets a bit too crazy, we have a few ‘go to’ solutions under our belts, including spending extra time outdoors, going to bed early, and focusing on the best moments of the day.
Our new Source Connection pendant, which Katia is wearing in the photo above, was inspired by this experience. There are many practices that help us to become centred, which in turn provides us with clarity and an opportunity to reconnect to who we truly are within.
The water element, in particular, can help us tune in, become centred, and remember our connection to everything and everyone that surrounds us. In Ontario, the summer season will start to wrap up soon enough, so this is the perfect time to enjoy being near the lake, basking in the tranquility.
In the words of Xavier Rudd:
“When you feel life coming down on you like a heavy weight
When you feel this crazy society adding to the strain
Take a stroll to the nearest water’s edge, remember your place
Many moons have risen and fallen long, long before you came
So which way is the wind blowing
What does your heart say”
This beautiful item is handcrafted using Narra wood, native to southeastern Asia and parts of Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, and Vietnam, among others. The centre circles are made of crushed seashell inlay.
We would love to hear from you! How do you stay centred when life gets a bit hectic?
