You're polishing your skills!
We honor your sacred connection to yourself and the natural world. Having loving and trusting relationships with yourself and others is a way to be well.
When your mind, body, emotion, and spirit are in harmony, you experience wellness. Wellness is supported by healthy relationships between yourself, you and others, and you and all living things including plants, animals and the land.
Interconnectedness is the knowing that we are all connected and that our actions can impact the world and those around us. Understanding this truth helps us make responsible decisions for the joy of all. You are a star at respecting all living things!
Innerself is your connection with yourself, including how you understand and care for yourself. This is a strong skill of yours. Continue showing yourself love by caring for your body and listening to your inner voice. Remember that your innerself skills can be a building block to blooming beautiful relationships.

Interpersonal skills help you build friendships and work as part of a team. To become a teamplayer, practice respecting the boundaries set by others. Respecting boundaries shows others that you care about their wellness. This is a great way to build lasting relationships and find groups of people that you can share your love with.
Journal: Think about your favorite plants or trees in your neighborhood. These plants and trees guide you, even if you don’t always know it! Take a few minutes to notice their beauty. What kind of vibe does it give off? Does it feel protective? Calm? Joyful? Draw or journal about what you learn from them, and share your gratitude for cleaning the air and bringing beauty to your ecosystem.
Meditate: Pick a song that brings you a sense of inspiration. Close your eyes as you listen to this song. In your mind, picture your favorite place in nature that brings you calm and peace. Notice details that you see. What colors are in the plants, animals, sky, or water? Notice any smells or weather you feel. Thank the land for protecting you and caring for you.
Connect: Write a letter to an ancestor. This ancestor can be a blood ancestor or one that you choose. This can be someone who inspires you to be your best self! Write a letter to them: give them an update on your life. Tell them about your strengths and challenges–what kind of guidance would you seek from them? Ask questions! Share your gratitude for continuing to inspire and guide you from afar.
