Enrichment as a Guiding Internal Principle

Why the 56th Gene Key Became My Word-of-the-Year

“True enjoyment is rooted inside your being rather than in the external.”

Richard Rudd, The Gene Keys

Setting a gentle intention

My current word of the year is enrichment.

The intent behind that word is…

  1. To give attention to those things that refill my well on every level.
  2. To listen closely to that inner discernment as a guide to know what to release and what to keep.
  3. To be open to experiences outside of my regular routine.

So far so good!

Enrichment is more than entertainment

I wholeheartedly agree with the quote above. Rather than a mere distraction, activities that truly enrich my life make me aware of my connection to the world. Rather than feeding a blind external consumption, or trying to get a fix, I am drawn to those things that build unity and help me realize how connected we really are.

What I’ve seen is that in order to feel centered & not swept up in a whirlwind of input, we do our best to stay awake to the call of our inner resources, and to stay in touch with our enriching communities.

Recognizing these unifying principles with the people I’ve spoken with in sessions and in my monthly class; I appreciate our commonness; our not-aloneness.

And that unity medicine is powerful.

Exploring the Gene Keys

I’m exploring these connections further to include work from The Gene Keys and Spiritual Counseling. This goes one step deeper into practices and treatments that raise us up and build resilience.

And that’s what enrichment is to me; feeding that holy curiosity. Discovering what’s out there that I didn’t really see, and how recognizing our common unity is so healing.
