Spirit Storehouse

As you probably noticed, I haven't been posting much lately. I feel a little like a seed buried in the dirt, waiting for the right moment to poke my head out.

I have a few drawings in the works, but when I picked up my journal tonight, it opened to this page with my spirit storehouse on it. I drew this last fall after a visit to my acupuncturist when he treated what he called my "spirit storehouse". I really liked that concept. The point for it on your body is just above your heart. Your spirit storehouse should be attended to when your spirit requires nourishment. And, by extension, your spirit should always be attended to, so you always have plenty of nourishment in stock.

I meant to fill in my storehouse, but eventually moved on to other things. I made it through the whole winter with barely anything in my storehouse! I think it's a good time to get back to it.

What is nourishing to your spirit? What could you stock up on so you'll have it on hand when you need it? I can testify, an empty storehouse is not what you want.
