Dormant in a sentence: When you are dormant to your inner self you can not see what is true to you and your heart.


Dormant in action: Stopping a physical activity or being asleep from an awareness standpoint of your inner self is dormant.


Dormant and inner growth: Exploring if there are areas within you that render you dormant to certain traits, feelings, and inner self characteristics is what can bring about inner growth as you identify these areas, address them and remove the state of dormancy.


Dormant and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What inner self traits are dormant? How have dormant situations affected my life?  When did I notice a dormant area within?  How do I notice what is dormant and what is not?  Why is it important for me to know my dormant areas?  Who has helped me identify dormant situations that I’ve been through?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with dormant at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. From this list think of two things you recently found were dormant and write about them using the words from your list.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about dormant situations and life experiences and notice what emotions arise, where they arise and where they go. As you do this visualize the transformation of going from dormant to awake and take note of how your feelings change throughout the process.
