Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.
For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.
To be truthful, I've had some 'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose. I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
So, here I am...typing one-handed, trying to find a comfortable position; yet I remain eternally optimistic for my own healing journey. This time has forced me to be even more introspective than usual.
This is what I affectionately refer to as the void. (cue the music).
Here are some things I've learned while being in the Void:
~ You can't control everything; but you can control how you respond
~ It's OK to ask for help
~ You get to re-assess what's truly important
~ There's always a way forward
~ Things are always working out
~ Self love and Self care are TOP priority
~ A good sense of humor will take you far
~ Taking deep belly breaths feels wonderful
~ Focus on the Healthy body parts
~ Music Music Music
~ The Void is a chance to re-set and replenish (don't fight it)
~ Learn to appreciate everything and everyone
~ Count Your Blessings...even when it's tough
When you come out on the other side (and you will); you'll be wiser and stronger.
So much LOVE! ~cathie

How's your energy been lately? Are you feeling like something is ready to burst forward in your life?
Here's the skinny: If you are a sensitive soul (and I KNOW you are)...then, you've been feeling the energy of the larger collective and it might have been presenting you with some challenges. With all that is happening in the outer world, we can sometimes feel helpless or overwhelmed.
You know there's something more happening here in the larger perspective; yet it feels that in all the intensity...there is an undercurrent of love.
Can you feel it?
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~
Since the word "meditation" causes more anxiety in people (oh...the irony); I prefer to call it "sitting."
At the close of my classes, meditations and workshops; I always end with this salutation~
"Take Your Peace With YOU, fill yourself first and share it with the rest of the world...because we need it out there"
