Last night I had no makeup on and my hair up in a bun when I decided to go on a quick run to my local Whole Foods in Sebastopol to pick up some Dr. Bronner’s pure rose liquid soap.
It was the first time I’d been out in the world (in a store) since the elections last week.
And I noticed something quite extraordinary.
There was a genuine feeling of love and compassion among the shoppers and cashiers. It was palpable the second I walked in.
Have you been experiencing this?
The cashier made sure to ask me how I was doing in such a way that made my heart melt.
It wasn’t that usual, “Hi, did you find everything you needed?” kind of look. It was more of a deep, delicious and open facial expression, her eyes set deep in their sockets, and lovingly gazing into mine as if we had known each other for years.
For a second I thought, “Is she looking at that big zit on my face?” Nope. She was simply a pure heart, broken open by a collective trauma millions of people are experiencing right now. A heart radiating love and light.
This, I thought, is one BIG blessing of last week’s shock that has sent so many of us into a downward spiral.
There is an ENORMOUS feeling of connection.
That got me thinking…
How are you connecting with your clients, patients, team members and students this week?
Is there anything in your health or wellness space that is particularly comforting to everyone right now?
Is it the tea and water offerings table in your waiting room that greets your peeps the second they walk into the door?
Or is it the beautiful nature art you have on the walls of your treatment room that helps your clients settle in to receiving a much needed acupuncture or massage treatment, knowing they are safe in your space?
Maybe it’s that delicious blue color spread over the walls of your clinic like vegan butter on a warm piece of toast.
Here are a few things you might not know about the color blue:
- Blue slows the metabolism and encourages our muscles to relax.
- Blue is calming and restful and invites both physical and mental relaxation.
- Blue, the color of the sky and sea, is an uplifting, trustworthy color and is a constant calming influence in our lives.
If you haven’t already started thinking about creating a safe and nurturing space at your clinic, office, treatment room or studio, now is the perfect time.
