Visiting Yourself with poem "You Have Become a Forest", by Nikita Gill

March 14, 2021

Sit into your own space, your imagination, your peace - as Julie Potiker leads you through this relaxing guided meditation. She completes the meditation with a reading of the poem, "You Have Become a Forest", by Nikita Gill.

One day when you wake up, you will find that you have become a forest. You have grown roots and found strength in them that no one thought you had. You have become stronger and more beautiful, full of life giving qualities. You have learned to take all the negativity around you and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing. A host of wild creatures live inside you and you call them stories. A variety of beautiful birds rest inside your mind and you call them memories. You have become an incredible self sustaining thing of epic proportions. And you should be so proud of yourself, of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be.

– Nikita Gill, You Have Become a Forest
