When we sit on the ground, we remember that the earth has weathered many storms and through change and often destruction, there is not only survival, but the growth and beauty that we see every spring.
SLOWING DOWN also helps us to connect in with what is truly bothering us underneath the surface. Yes, there are countless things that are disturbing these days though you may notice that certain things feel more challenging to you than others or elicit more of a reaction than something else. This is information. Anytime we experience a reactive thought or a feeling of wanting to push something away — it gives us information about what we may need to take some time to feel and process underneath. It may help to reveal a feeling that we have been carrying for decades and have never fully acknowledged. As we heal these unprocessed emotions by feeling them, we have more space to breathe and more bandwidth to take in what is going on around us. From this place, we can respond in a way that helps us to remember that our thoughts and actions are powerful and we can choose not to be swept up by the chaos.
