Reflection offerings and practices for the day - Shelley Ostroff

  1. Intentional invitation:  There are many ways to connect with Climate.  Sense into the way in which you would like to deepen your relationship with Climate today.  How can you best create the conditions for this to manifest? 

  2. Breathing Climate:  Sense into your breath and how you with each breath, you are breathing in the local and global climate,  and with each outbreath, breathing out your internal climate. Experience that sense of the boundaryless of Climate – the space of no separation between the climate within and the climate without - the Climate that you inhale and exhale through every breath.

  3. Sensing Climate: Imagine the climate as the loving coming together of the elements – the loving of the Earth, Water, Fire and Air in dynamic relationship with each other, creating the precise conditions for you to replenish yourself and flourish – creating the perfect conditions for all Life to flourish. How are these elements coming together within you right now?  Sense into each separately and then sense into the relationship among them. What do you notice? What elements are in need of greater balance? What elements are in need of more attention from you? What elements need a more precise flow of communication between them?

  4. Reflecting Climate:What are you noticing about the climate within you? What is the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual climate that you area cultivating within you right now and what is the relationship between these aspects within yourself as they meet each other and work together within you? How does this internal climate that you cultivate within you impact the climate of your close environment?  How does that impact ripple far into the distant reaches of the planetary ecosystem? What is the message to climate that you are conveying in your lifestyle and ways of engaging with it?  How does climate feel to experience your contribution to it?

  5. Climate and Culture: The climate can be seen as the general culture that is more than the sum of all the parts. It is the dynamic sum of the relationship among the parts. Sense into the relationship of climate and culture. How do the thought patterns, emotions, physical structures and spiritual worldviews of your culture impact each other and how do they manifest in the cultural climate in which you live? How is the environmental climate a reflection of your culture? In what ways does your culture impact the global cultural climate – and the environmental climate of the biosphere?

  6. Embodying Climate: Imagine yourself as Climate. Become the different seasons in your body. What does it feel like to be summer, autumn, winter, spring? What does it feel like to be a desert climate, a temperate climate, a tropical climate. What is the unique movement and expression of these different climates and seasons as you embody them? What is their unique dance? Allow yourself to embody and dance the seasons and the climate zones, noticing how your body feels as you move through the different seasons and zones with the winds and the rotation of the Earth.

  7. Climate and consciousness: Sense into the code of consciousness that regulates the dance of the elements within you. What is that code of relationship that enables the whole to work together with such precision to enable the pure conditions for your body and soul to flourish and regenerate?  Sense into this master intelligence that regulates temperature and moisture of the entire planetary body - sense into its ancientness and its evolutionary path. Sense into what it must need in order to process such vast dynamic and evolving information simultaneously. What conditions does the climate need in order to be able to function as nature intended. What does it need from you? What does it need from Humanity?

  8. Messages from Climate: Imagine yourself in the presence of the climate code and that it has a message to offer you for your own personal benefit.. What is the climate showing you? What can you learn from the climate by becoming more like the Climate? What is the message the climate wants you to offer to humanity?

  9. Messages for Climate: Sensing deeper and deeper into your ever-present relationship with Climate, what is the message that you would like to offer this incredible code of Life?  What would you like to tell Climate if it could speak your language?

  10. Art from the Heart of Climate:  Sense into the way in which this dialogue with Climate wants to express itself through the Heartist in you in any art form you wish. Offer your own Heartful offering to the Heart of Climate.

Daily Quote and Meditation

Offered by

Clare Dubois

'May we rest in awareness and gratitude for the forests that are our primary partners in the moderation and stabilzation of the climate. May we recognize the vital role that trees play in the hyrdological cycle of our world as balancers and creators. May we honour how they guard against extremes of flood and drought, in healing our soils and sequestering carbon. May we rest in gratitude for the breathtaking gift of our trees and make a choice to restore the forests of our world as a crucial way of providing for our children. May we restore our forests consciously, deliberately, carefully and respectfully."​

What an honor it is to be a part of this global event! I am grateful for those of you joining us! I share a part of our day with you and as we all honor our Climate today, let us be grateful for the changes that we experience. Most people have a hard time with change but our climate is the perfect teacher. As the seasons change and sometimes become more challenging it is our cue to work with what we are given. We have the ability to make the needed differences for all and to keep our Mother Earth in mind to how we make those differences. Finding ways to benefit ALL not just the few will be the way to harmonizing our lives and those around us.

Offered by Shelley Ostroff​​




DAY FIVE: Rest in Loving Communication – Reflections and practices


1. Embodied Communication: Your entire body is always communicating. At different times of the day and in different situations, pause and pay attention to what your body is saying in the way that you are sitting or standing or walking. If you were to look at yourself from the outside, what would you imagine yourself to be communicating through your body language to the world around you?  Offer yourself some gentle attention, transform the way you are holding yourself and experience the impact of this shift.

2. Communicating with your body: Notice the internal sensations of your body, what is it saying to you, what is it feeling, what is it needing? Notice how you communicate with your body, both in the way you think about it and the way you treat it. How can you listen and communicate more lovingly with your body.

3. Smile: Even if you are not happy, just for a moment, smile, and notice how the shift in your face impacts the rest of the body. Notice the communication of the smile within you and beyond you.

4. Loving inner messages: What words of support, love or acknowledgement would you like to receive right now? What words would soothe you and inspire you? Offer those words lovingly to yourself. Notice how receptive you may or may not be and soften into even greater receptivity.

5. Witnessing communication: As you communicate through the day, watch the communication and reflect on it. Notice how you are communicating, the tone and pace of the words you choose, the content of the words, the essence and energy of the words. Notice the body language you use as you speak. And as you notice imagine what this communication would look like if it these communications were more heartful, more loving to yourself and others? Practice bringing heartfulness into these communications.

6. Deep listening: Notice the way in which you listen to others.  What is your body language as you listen? What are the voices in your own head as you listen? What are the interpretations and judgments about what is being said?  How can you perhaps hear what is said by the other from a different vantage point or from a more open and empathic perspective?

7. Practicing empathy with others:  Put yourself in the position of those you are communicating with. Imagine what it is to be them. What is the story that has led them to this moment – and to the communication they are offering. 

8. Practicing empathy with yourself: We are constantly communicating with ourselves through our thoughts, judgments and interpretations. What is the quality of the way in which you communicate with yourself? Practice being kinder, gentler and more understanding of yourself as a bridge to transformation

9. Honest communication: Honesty and integrity involves practicing self-awareness. Honesty often gets confused with judgment – but honesty is generally less about ideas and more about emotions, and personal experience. Honest communication entails developing a vocabulary of emotions and experiences and spending time listening to and acknowledging what one is experiencing. Practice noticing the difference of energy when you speak with judgment and interpretation of yourself or another and when you are speak from personal experience, taking responsibility for whatever you are feeling.

10. Sifting messages: Discern the messages that are nourishing to your soul and those that are not. Practice listening to those that are nourishing and letting go of those that are not.  In the same way practice nourishing others with your communication.

11. Interspecies communication: Spend time with an animal, either physically or in your imagination.  Watch its behavior, sense its breath and its energy – what is it feeling? What is its experience? From a very calm and unexpecting place, send it a loving message.  Spend some time with the animal communication webinars offered through 7 Days of Rest.

12. Journaling:  Spend some time writing your thoughts and feelings. Optimally spending at least 15 minutes a day writing whatever comes to mind without censorship offers a powerful journey of self-awareness. Start today with taking 15 minutes to talk to talk to yourself and listen to yourself through this process.


13. Intention: Set an intention to grow more and more into loving and honest communication with yourself and others and cultivate practices and processes for doing so.
