Over the past while, my partner and I, inspired by a First Nations practice, have taken to asking: “Is your sky open?” before launching into our ‘own thing’ with one another (whether personal, business/creative-related, or anything else).
I love this practice and wanted to share.
Though I haven’t researched it properly, as best I understand, the original practice goes this way: There’s no assumption that a person is open and available for small talk – or any talk.
You see and witness one another. And you respect where you each are – in heart, mind, body, process.
Before anything else, you always ask: “Is your sky open?” (rather than assuming you can jump into another’s thoughts, mind and conversation and command full attention).
This practice resonate with (sound dreamy to) anyone else?
Have another, like practice to share?
I’d love to hear in the comments!
