So if you want to practice this, it is best to make time to sit and breathe. First work with starting to name the feelings, hear the thoughts and words. Say I see you. Create some breathing room and welcome the inflow to fill you with more loving awareness as you explore the sensations that are tethered to what is being shown. Ask yourself what does my heart long for? What is this pain asking me to accept? How can I take care of myself? Then start nurturing what is exposed with kind words and feel the meaning of the words like ‘I care’ ‘I am not leaving’ ‘you matter to me’ ‘I hear you’ ‘this belongs’ ‘you are enough’ ‘I love you’. Find your own way in self-soothing as you rest in the vast loving awareness, healing in the light of presence and learning to trust and let go into the embrace of it. Moment by moment, breath by breath.
How do you personally find positivity during challenging times?
Laughter. I seek the funny things in my life that bring me joy. Memes are a guilty pleasure and sharing them to laugh with others brings me joy.
Are you reading anything at the moment?
Glennon Doyle “Untammed” amazing book. Just finished and it is one of those books that is like breathing fresh air, freeing oneself from the limiting belief systems of our conditioned cultural training. It is a force, but a force of good.
How do you relax and practice self care?
Regular Yoga Nidras (yoga naps), homemade food from my husband, walks and bike rides in nature and best of all, salt water baths with Susie Mermaid bath oils have been delightful!
