Coming to you live from day 7 of the shop being closed due to the coronavirus, and this has felt like the longest and shortest week of life. Also, maybe the most challenging and yet peaceful. I wanted to share a reflection of the state of things and what I’m doing to stay healthy both physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
I touch on:
How this feels like a shift from individual to collective focus
How to navigate the pressure to do alllll the things right now: meditate, workout, read, start a business. I suggest turning to trusting your own gut to know what you need and when you need it.
The beauty of both giving and receiving support and looking at life through the lens of “how can I serve others / the collective?” and knowing you can do this best when you first are taking care of yourself.
Is this all about healing our heart chakra?
Affirming: “I am safe, I am supported. People want to see me succeed. I am part of something larger than myself. I am taken care of. I am enough. I have enough. All is well. I trust the process. I trust the universe. I trust God. I trust myself. I trust I always know what to do.”
MY constants that have moved me through this week - but find what works for you:
Each night checking in on the blue mind book club. Seeing the ocean is cathartic. Hearing about water feels beautiful. facebook.com/wallacejnichols
Movement - walks, yoga, whatever i feel like vs. having a set routine. THOUGH following a routine if that’s what is right for you.
Daily meditation & prayer
Lots of writing - business and otherwise
Checking in with people - receiving and giving support when I can. Creating strong boundaries around this as well.
Laughing & getting into the feelings of joy. AKA: dolphins in the Venice canals. All the really heroic and kind gestures being shared. UPDATE: Apparently the dolphins AREN'T real.
Cold water swims
Telling myself that i’m safe and healthy, as often as i need to hear it.
I wrote apost on this, so take a look there fore more links. I also surround myself with beautiful things that keep me high vibe: crystals, flowers, cards, etc. I like to let God connect with me through them.
Praying / meditation.
Repeating the affirmations listed above.
Nature / water
Limiting alcohol, sugar, and dairy. Personally not doing great at this!
