What is the Circle Of Life Exercise?
Often when we have a dis-ease or health challenge we tunnel vision on only one sort of input; whether that’s medicine, food, mindset, or something else. In reality, our healing will come to us fastest when we balance all the inputs that come into our being from all sources. If you’re looking to restore your body, this Circle Of Life Exercise will help you see where you may need some balance.
If you do discover that you are low in some of these other areas, considering my Life More Abundantly course which explore how to grow in each of these areas.
The Circle Of Life Exercise
This exercise will highlight the areas you could use some abundance and healing in. Follow the steps below in order to complete the exercise.
- Print the image above or draw the circle and 12 axes on a paper.
- For each of the 12 axes, ask yourself “how abundant am I in this area?” (Read the axis descriptions below the Circle of Life image for more information on what each axis means)
- Circle the number related to how abundant you feel, where (1) is not very abundant and (5) is very abundant! Feel free to go higher or lower as well, the numbers are just a guideline.
- Connect all your circled dots from each axis to create a shape which represents your abundance.
- Reflect on your circle of life results and take note of areas that strike your attention. Have gratitude for your high-abundance areas and set intentions of abundance for all the rest.
