Into the Tangled Garden | A Self Discovery Studio in Mt. Pleasant, SC

When you tune out of your mind for a moment, you can begin to listen to your body. Your body will tell you where you need to focus your energy to create health. Additionally, if you can sit in silence, you can hear the voice within you that has the answers to all your questions.

What is the symbolic meaning of theTangled Garden? A garden is a perfect metaphor for the life cycles of birth, death, and re-birth that takes place throughout our lifetime. We usually go kicking and screaming from one transition to another, never wanting to let go, making life harder for ourselves. We often follow the mind without consulting the heart.

Letting go, and living in the present is the best gift we can give ourselves, and each other. Go ahead. Let go of what you think you are doing this very moment, and focus on what’s going on within. While letting go, you open your heart, you feel, you touch, hear, see, and intuit. You become aware of life and treasure the experience.

As you become awake, aware, alive, and discerning you are able to make conscious choices that benefit your best interests, and that of others.

Let’s metaphor.

We are nature, connected to the cosmos. We are the garden. We have roots – our family. The soil is the culture we’re born into. The way we perceive all of our life experiences are through the imprint of our family, our culture, our country, and advertising. It’s easy to get tangled in other people’s roots, and it takes us at least a half a lifetime to get untangled and find our unique gifts ~ and to realize our purpose in the world.

Into the Tangled Garden is the path to self discovery, a way to see the significance of your life experiences. In this garden, you come to accept that the things you get tangled in ~ are the very things that make you who you are. Your relationships, events, the challenges and obstacles you face create opportunities to learn, grow and discover your inner wisdom. This process is integral; it adds joy to life and creates wholeness of body, mind, emotion, and spirit. If any of these are out of balance, it will have consequences that affect the whole.

Whether we are aware of it or not, we create our own environment and biosphere.

It’s amazing what a little shift in consciousness can do for you, your relationships, your health, your career, your spirit, and the energy you give back into the world.

Go on now, take your life to the next level and step…into the tangled garden.
