Another great blessing was learning to not believe every thought in my head.
It’s not that I don’t have them. It’s just that I no longer get totally lost trying to follow every lead, every channel, every thread.
We all have the ability to do this, to question our thinking, to change channels, even if it feels like a radio station that fades in and out at times (because it is; static is part of the programming). It requires slowing down and listening deeply, two things that are not given much respect in this world of information overload. High speed, next generation wireless networks keep us always plugged in “out there” but not “in here,” the only place where our unique answers can be found.
The essence of what I offer is learning to listen and respond from new vantage points. It’s about paying mindful attention to body and soul to figure out what truly is needed, moment to moment.
I’ve learned how to feel all of my feelings, and to be gentle and kind with myself when I don’t feel like the strong, clear, connected person I wish I could be in all circumstances, every day (oh so human).
I trust that I can successfully navigate rocky paths, times of feeling lost in the abyss, and periods of being frustrated from banging into too many walls and apparent dead ends.
And, through taking many forward and backward steps, what’s helped me most is learning how to be compassionate, always begin again when I’ve fallen off course, and honor the small steps along the way.
This is what I look forward to helping you embody in your own journey to whatever lies ahead.
