Your Inner and Outer landscapes
Our Soulscape is composed of both Inner and Outer landscapes.
Your Inner landscape is the world of your internal feelings, emotions, and intuition.
Your Outer Landscape is the world around you.
Both of these landscapes have an ordinary reality: what you can see with your eyes, hear with your ears, touch, and smell. And a nonordinary reality: the world you can see with your heart and feel with your senses.
Your access your Inner landscape through your body’s feelings, emotions, and intuition. The ordinary reality of your inner landscape is considered your mind, body functions, pain, stress levels, longing, depression, desire, and the stories- ideas that keep you in a box. The non-ordinary reality of your Inner Landscape is when you look to those stories and symptoms: pain, stress, longing, loneliness, etc. and invite your Body Wisdom: feelings, emotions, and intuition, to guide you towards understanding your self more.
Your Outer Landscape, Nature, is also referred to as The Web of Life, the non-ordinary reality of your Outer Landscape is that Everything is Alive and has Spirit, which means that Star, Crow, Wind, Tree, Bee, Water, and Momma Earth all are part of the Web of Life, just as you are.
Following your heart (intuition) and Seeing with your heart, is how you allow your heart to be the intermediary between you and The Spirit That Lives In All Things.
Seeing with your heart is the way to access your Inner and Outer landscapes.
Creativity is the portal to you access soul, by bringing your focus back to your heart, your body and your intuition. Intuitive creation uses these three guides connect you to your internal strengths and something bigger, your Soul.
