We are living in transformational times. For many of us, the normal way of engaging is met with resistance. Old systems are falling apart and confusion is pulling us in many directions. Stress and trauma have become all too common.
When we lose our rhythm or take things personally, our responses can often become reactive rather than proactive, and cause more suffering. We may look outside for the cause of pain and blame others, or attack ourselves with negative self-talk and weaken our confidence.
When we do this, we often forget our intuitive wisdom and inner guidance and lose the joy of creating from our wholesome, interconnected nature.
In my consulting practice here in Minneapolis, I (Julie Delene) teach people to move as one in 5 Mindful Moves™.
Moving as one is a balanced, whole approach to listen more mindfully and move forward in a new way. Those I work with declare it works well for them, now I am sharing it more broadly. I introduce this process through game playing experiences.
What does Move As One mean?
Moving as one means we include, ignite and co-create with all the elements for our greater good. It guides us to be nimble, flexible, responsive and authentic.
Each of us is a living, breathing and walking ecosystem, a movement of nature. When we move as one, we are in rhythm with our natural ecosystem. This changes from reacting to engaging and pollinating healthy ecosystems within ourselves, work, family, environment and community.
Many of us have experienced healthy ecosystems where all people, entities and elements are nourished and are working for the whole system. It feels natural, harmonious and in-tune with our innate rhythm. It is easy to be in these healthy ecosystems that work well and help all participants prosper. I call this active, aware, co-creative field an “ecoCreative culture“.
What can you do?
Turn to nature as a resource for balanced wisdom and ecoCreate from within. When you nourish your inner ecosystem, you strengthen intimacy with your body, brain and breath. This intimacy provides you with the wisdom to care for yourself and the whole. You can consciously rise up to meet what is next, clear your way forward and respond in ways that transforms confusion.
EcoCreate simply means you ignite all the elements for whole system change.
Next, become a pollinator and play a bigger game. Pollinators are fertilizers, inoculating life force to nourish, enrich and cultivate thriving ecosystems. We all have a part to play. Draw upon your unique gifts to inoculate life force where needed.
Connect with Julie Delene if you are ready to “ecoCreate” or host a game playing experience to:
- increase creative energy and renew purpose,
- hear each other and build bridges,
- release barriers and move through conflict,
- engage collaboration and empower actions, and
- awaken greater potential for all to thrive.
