Over the past couple of years, I’ve come to value home more than ever. The other day, a friend asked me what I like to do on the weekends. As much as I love people and places and exploration, the past few years that spirit of exploration and adventure has been turned inward. I responded, “Weekends are my time to come home to me.”
When we are out in the world, there are all kinds of external factors influencing who we THINK we need to be. Our physical home is our safe haven, where we can kick up our feet and give ourselves permission to just “be.”
But beyond that, what I’ve come to realize (with help from some key astrological transits to my fourth house) is that home is something deeper. It’s that place of ultimate comfort and relaxation.
The more I immerse myself in that space — the comfort I’m finding within myself — the more I can bring my authentic energy out into the world.
Meditation, journaling, reflective reading, music, astrology, Reiki, Tarot, time to be still and think. This is how I strip away the complex layers of protection I build to fit in with the world around me — and come home to my authentic center, my core and my heart.
There’s no place like the home, the home within.
