Here are some ways to help bring awareness back into the present moment. Having taught these tips to many clients, we find them to be very helpful to relieve stress, worry, anxiety. By focusing your awareness back into yourself in a loving and compassionate way; it helps to re-direct your thoughts with gentleness. From that point, you can move forward and take action, and make decisions from a more loving space.

TOGETHER WE'LL MAKE IT THROUGH:
Days turned inside out
The inner world calls us
The outer world scares us
Nights are really quiet
Our thoughts betray us
Our peace allays us
There's only one thing to do
Things are changing and we're being asked (or dragged) along for the ride. The opening and awakening that is happening now is not to be taken lightly. It's all for a higher purpose (even though we might not know it).
This current challenge is uniting the world in so many ways- and let's face it; it's time! We've been divided for too long and this is a time where we must stand together.
Many people have been asking me for some tools and strategies to help them stay calm amid all the storm that is surrounding us....
Lately I've been speaking with people about how to manage stress or anxiety. Things seem to have been amped up in the Universe and it's been causing us to look deep within.
For myself, I find it necessary to take a few minutes in the morning to sit quietly~
