A Sample Email: Day 3  I am. May You Be

Re-collecting
Re-collecting is more than remembering. It is bringing yourself into a full sense of who you are, just as you are. Take a moment to look in a mirror before you leave. Look with gentleness. Receive the image of your-self with humour, grace and acceptance.

Practice
Beatrice Bruteau died in 1984, but her scholarly work is being re-discovered because of her insights into science, math and spirituality. She is a modern mystic and interspritual pioneer.

Her words: “I am. May you be” say something about her inclusive vision and the value of each person (including self)

As you stroll today, recall her mantra. “I am. May you be.” Allow a sense of self-love and mutual respect rise in you, and in all you meet.  Bring to mind someone who is a struggle for you to accept or be with. Simply offer the prayer: I am. May you be.

Dedication
Continue the “I am. May you be” mantra during the day. Is there a cue you can set to remind yourself? It acknowledges the gift of you in the world and it is a prayer of respect for others.

Book: God’s Ecstasy: The Creation of a Self-Creating World by Beatrice Bruteau.

    I have done several “Stroll for Your Soul” and also have gifted a friend to stroll with me. Janice provides a beautiful and practical way to be present to the book of life and gives a great resource to help create sacred space in nature.
