A few weeks ago I completely dropped the ball.
I got so caught up in all the things happening in life that I stopped making time for my Yin practices that I usually sprinkle throughout the day.
Day by day my Yin practices began to slip and I began to notice life change.
I heard a quote during the week that really hit me.
When I think of the term 'conscious cocoon' I think about being held in a safe space and brings about feelings of compassion, rest and peace.
I have to be honest and say that today I am eating some of my words from an earlier post.
You may have read that last weeks Cultivating Yin online session was the last live session, and they will be delivered in a different format moving forwards.
Well… this was my plan, until I realized that it’s actually not what I want to do.
After the devastating news during the week in Europe I felt called to share some practices that can support the collative energy and what we can do on an individual level.
I believe we are all connected energetically. We can feel each others happiness and sadness and all the emotions in between. We have all experienced that at one time or another. And we can support each other energetically across the globe too.
I also believe we can support the collective by doing our bit to raise the energy and that every human matters in the mission of peace for humanity.
If you’re after some support processing how you’re feeling about what is currently going on in the world here are some practices that can help.
At a time when there is so much going on in our world, so much uncertainty and so much change gratitude softens my heart.
Last Tuesday I was tired, grumpy, emotional, over it, done. I had a massive headache and could barely sit up to eat dinner.
So I rescheduled my online clients (thank you for your understanding) and deep dived into self care. That looked like having a good cry, sitting with and feeling all of my emotions to allow them to shift through me. I love the practice of having a cry to let all of the emotions come to the surface and leave my energy field. It feels so cathartic.
'Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going'.
I came across this quote a little while ago and I deeply resonated with it.
I'm sure I am not alone when I say that I have had many times when I have started a new practice extremely motivated and with great intentions, only for it to fizzle out in a matter of weeks or days.
The other day in lockdown I decided to mix things up.
The kids were was soooo over home schooling and were resisting it to their best efforts. Instead of trying to convince them to do it, I sympathized with them that home schooling sucks and I get that they'd rather be at school. Then I realized that we needed to shift this funky energy, so I suggested a game on the trampoline.
I have a story to share with you about an unexpected healing experience I had recently at my dentist.
This story reminds me that healing truly is possible anywhere!
