OM.2 - Day 14 & 15

Day 14
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?? Would you know how to answer this question immediately or would you have to think about it?

Yesterday in astrology class, we discussed the planet Saturn. Saturn is the planet of limitations, tests, obstables, lessons learned and all that good stuff. Saturn often suggests an area where we may have fear or LIMITATION. At the same time, what Saturn offers is the ability to break through that limitation and fear and reach amazing and explosive breakthroughs in these areas.

We continued to speak about limitation and how sometimes we even feel safe in limiting ourselves. We begin to feel safe in the everyday limits we know.

This summer one of my 11 year old students said she was "bad" at visualizing becuase she doesn't have a "good imagination". I challenged this viewpoint and asked her to look beyond what she thinks is a good imagination.

I tie this all back to the initial question - if you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? What do you want to dream about but I have felt limited in? What are you stopping yourself from dreaming/visualizing/imagining about?

Today I encourage you to dare to dream. Dream about where you will travel! Today take the steps to think about what you want. If you want to think about travelling, begin to perhaps research this place and look online or through magazines for images, and let yourself daydream and visualize the possibilities!

Day 15
“If you nurture your mind, body, and spirit, your time will expand. You will gain a new perspective that will allow you to accomplish much more.”
- Brian Koslow quotes

Today's word of the day in OM is: EXPAND.
Expand means many things but one of the definitions i like are:
-To open (something) up or out; spread out

What do you need to open up about or where do you want to spread out? Today challenge yourself to expand in an area that you usually do not.

Maybe begin a new book you have wanted to read, or perhaps have no TV for the day and do other things you think/daydream about. Expand yourself!!
