Beyond Control

I recently saw the extent to which I’d been controlling both physical pain and the possible limitations that my body could offer me. I saw how every day I was protecting myself from the past.

Helped my a couple myofascial release sessions, I felt safe enough to let go of the protections that OTC pain meds offered. A week later it feels wonderful to be living in a different reality- physically, energetically and spiritually.

It’s not pain free. But it’s my reality, not dulled or masked.

And here I am, picking my nose.

Wiring Yourself Peaceful

Good morning, friends. I had a truly wonderful and peace-filled day so far, and just wanted to share something that was a big part of that.

Below is a You Tube video. Two Sanskirt mantras set to a soft guitar melody. To me it feels quietly hopeful in it’s gratitude. What a wonderful energy to get stuck in my head all day.

My suggestion is this. In choosing a more magical start to your day tomorrow, go to bed just a little earlier than usual. Maybe 30 minutes earlier. Then get up 30 min before you usually do. Turn this music on while your mind is still a bit foggy.

If at all possible, get outside. Look out the window if you can’t. Take at least 5 deep breaths. Couple of air squats. And walk slowly wherever your heart takes you, as you listen to this music.

Do yourself a favor and don’t google what the words mean. Just let it be. Let your heart rest in this new moment. It’s a new day. You are here. Keep breathing. If you find yourself humming the melody or softly singing along- let it flow.

Namaste.

Answering My Questions

My follow up to the last video, 3 Questions, 3 Minutes. You may enjoy feeling into the questions before watching this.

What is the one thing you most want to express to a loved one?

What is the one thing you’d like to do for them?

Who do you want to be for them?

There are no right answers. We are all here for different reasons, it seems to me.
