When I first started transitioning into a nomadic lifestyle, I felt displaced and somewhat frantic with all the movement. I knew I needed to have a grounding tool that would serve as my anchor. It would be something I could easily travel with, contain my spiritual tools, and serve as an altar to create an immediate sacred space wherever I went. Right then and there the Connection Kit was born. It is meant to reunite you to the home within yourself.
There are many practices and tools that can be used for bringing in connection to our mind, body, and spirit. When creating these kits, I focus on bringing in the elements and items to help you tune into your senses. Similar to meditation, our senses can bring us immediately into our body and the present moment. I allow my own intuition and Spirit to guide me as to what belongs in each one. The content varies and flows from one to the other. Each one has its own energy and theme. I now create Ritual Kits, Recovery Kits, and Self Love Kits in addition to the original Connection Kit.
They are meant to be a foundational kit that grows and expands with you as you continue to explore your path. Allow the contents to come and go and reflect your journey. You might want to add pictures of people or spirit guides that you look to for guidance, small mementos from mother earth, or a keepsake you have received and holds a special place in your heart. There are no rules! Anything goes when we are talking about connecting with ourselves. You are the only one that truly knows what belongs here and when. I encourage you to set time aside each day (even if it is 5 minutes) to connect with YOU. Simple breathing, creating, journaling, moving your body, meditating, singing, and any nature immersion is a great place to start.
