The word ENOUGH can have many meanings for us…
…When your mind is spinning…and you’ve had ENOUGH
…When your belly feels satisfied or full…you’ve had ENOUGH
…When holding a blessing in your life…the sensation of ENOUGH

Enough of this
Enough of that
Evoking the word ENOUGH can feel
Positive 🥰
Negative 😖

Enough in the mind, the endless mental chatter
Enough in the belly, feelings of overfull or fully satisfied
Enough…just the right amount of
smiles, joy, summer vacation
laughter, snuggles, hope, gifts
Juice of life
Flow of creation
ENOUGH lives effortlessly in the natural world
All creatures intuitively know…ENOUGH

Consider how you feel when you sense you have ENOUGH?

When was the last time you said…ENOUGH 😖!!?

Or…enough 🥰, with a fullness, happiness, satisfied smile?

For me, shouting to myself in my mind when I hear an overabundance of sounds or noises…AND when I sit, pool-side, smiling, heart full, watching my little Pisces swimming like the fish she was born to be.

Your turn!

When was the last time you felt the negative and positive sensations of ENOUGH?

Word Associations…

Satiated…Dreamy…at Peace…

Use the p.r.a.c.t.i.c.e. below to assist your exploration of…the contentment that breeds when we feel enough…

the contentment of enough…
invite yourself to
sit quietly, comfortably
hands on heart or belly

quietly breathe
allow the lungs, chest, belly
to feel an abundance of
oxygen, blood, spirit
flowing into this beautiful body
feeling sensations of satisfaction…
