Respond, Balance & Communication: Allow HOME to be a feeling you carry inside yourself, wherever you are.

The word “home” has a wide variety of connotations. To some, home is merely a place where basic needs are addressed. To others, home is the foundation from which they draw their strength & tranquility. Still, others view home as a place inexorably linked to family. Yet all these definitions of home imply somewhere we can be ourselves &  are totally accepted. AT home, we feel safe enough to let down our guard, peaceful enough to really relax, and loved enough to want to return day after day. However, these qualities needn’t be linked to a single space, or any space at all. Home is where the heart is and can be in the locale you live, in a community you once lived, or in the country where you plan to live someday. Or, home can be a feeling you carry inside yourself, wherever you may be.

The process of evolution can require you to undergo transformations that uproot you. Moving from place to place can seem to literally divide you from the foundations upon which you’ve come to depend. Since your home is so intimately tied to the memories that define you, you may feel you’re losing a vital part of yourself when you leave behind your previous home, city, state, or even country. And, as it may take some time before you fashion new memories, you may feel “homeless” even after settling into your new abode. To carry your home with you, you need only become your own foundation. Doing so is merely a matter of staying grounded & centered, and recognizing the pleasures you enjoyed in one place will still touch your heart in another – if you allow them.

Your home can be any space or state of being that fulfills you, provided you’re at peace with yourself & your surroundings. A person can feel like home to you, as can seasons & activities. If you feel disconnected from what you once thought of as home, your detachment may be a signal you’re ready to move on. Simply put, you’ll know you’ve found your home when both your physical environment & energetic surroundings are in harmony with the individual you are within.
