It’s one of the reasons I recommend to my clients to take Respite and Retreat time. Respite time is an afternoon to oneself. Retreat time is longer, a weekend, a week. In this sacred space of being alone, you can shut down to that world which drives you. You step into self. Listening, looking, hearing your soul’s whisper. In this place of sacred dialogue you discover that which you are meant to do…to be. There’s no angst, no need for confusion. Just you listening, hearing and understanding.

Respite time is easy to create to discover this flowing home to self. Having support in place so that once a week or every other week you can go and just be. Sitting in a park, Walking through a museum, or having sacred tea in a corner of your home allows for you to reconnect. It’s creating space wherever you are . Closing your eyes, calming your mind and your emotions, remembering and imagining, the sight, the sound, the smells of when you felt safe and supported. and opening up to the wisdom within. You will soon discover, it has never been far away. It’s always there for access anytime, anywhere.
Retreating is a great way for you to be able to connect to self. This requires creating the support in place so that you when you retreat you know all is handled. It’s about letting go, not controlling every move and trusting that ‘life’ will be fine while you reflect and listen to your own best friend ~ yourself. Taking a weekend or longer allows one to center on their own truth. It’s in this space and time that you can take a deep breath and allow peaceful and easy flowing home to self.
While holistic care and classes and working with mentors and coaches is a vital component to understanding one’s inner truth, This is soul-itude time. Connection to self that is best served by yourself. A time to take the teachings you’ve done and process that which serves you, disregard the rest and use the skills to access your best self and bring that forward.

This is an interesting article to me as a person. I am one of those people who need “alone time” to regenerate and re-energize. I’ve found over the years that respite time is enough to do the job most of the time. And, every once in a great while, a retreat works very well for me.
