Elevation - Plamena SertevaElevation, Silviya Nedelcheva



Higher, ever higher everyone aspire.
Never think to stop until you have reached
The most exalted mountain top.
(Repeat from the beginning)

Elevation is a process of growing, moving forward and upward. Some examples of processes and states in nature, in the person (thoughts, feelings, deeds) and relations:

  • plants and animals grow up, an apple ripens;
  • a person matures physically, intellectually, emotionally: thoughts, feelings, ideas, understanding, knowledge, experience, skills grow and develop; a child becomes adult;
  • a person develops professionally, grows socially, a student goes to a higher grade;
  • technical achievements improve, sport records become higher;
  • relationships grow and strengthen with time;

“The lifting of the arms is the receiving of the new, the inspiration… while the bringing of the arms down and back signifies that as we receive the new we put the old behind us. This movement of the arms expresses the great power that moves people onwards along the path of life: just as the boat is moved forward by lifting and bringing down the oars”. [Beinsa Douno, Paneurhythmy, p.48]


Elevation - Ufuk AtillaElevation - Martin Ivanov

2.Drawing: Draw a picture of a tree growing from seed to fruit-giving stages. Draw a process picture of constant growing: with images or colours or shapes. Draw an illustration to the exercise.

3.Questions: Mountains can be found in nature; what “mountain tops” do you climb in your  life?

4.Experience:Tell us of situations and experiences when your understanding has grown. What is the feeling?

5.Imagination: Imagine while you play the exercise that you drive a boat and your arms are the oars taking you further. 

6.Affirmation:  Write your own positive affirmation for elevation. For example: I grow up every day. I become better.

7.Quote: Abraham Lincoln “You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.” Find your favourite quote.


Elevation, Marieta Stoycheva


Marieta Stoycheva "Elevation": One can focus on the little things and see only them or to elevate over the situations and circumstances to the point where his/her consciousness begins to perceive from a broader perspective..starting with the insect, passing through the path, going beyond the city and encompassing the whole planet..Elevation is the shift of perspective.
