with Lynn O’Brien
Lynn began by singing a song written by her Aunt Margaret, Going Home. It set the tone for our conversation about creating a sense of home. She spoke of creating a sense of home in our house and in our sense of skin. She said this sense of home is a crucial manifestation to gift ourselves. The Universal Law of Attraction strongly comes into play.
Lynn asked us to notice your environment, inside and out. List what you notice. Then ask yourself, “How do you feel in your home?” Now, what two words describe your home? We engaged in an activity to help us reflect upon various characteristics, desirable and possibly undesirable, one might find in a home. We considered, “a sense of home comes when…where…(focusing on our five senses: seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, feeling). Lynn asked, “What is the first sound a guest hears when entering your home?” We reflected on this.
Lynn encouraged us. “If you want to make a change in your life, often a change in your environment will help. Look at your space, shift or change something to promote and reinforce what you envision. What traits or behaviors do you desire? What can you add or shift in your environment to promote the desired trait?” She recommended a book, SoulSpace: Transform Your Home, Transform Your Life — Creating a Home That Is Free of Clutter, Full of Beauty, and Inspired by You by Xorin Balbes and Marianne Williamson.
