What would my Highest Imaginative Self be doing at this present moment?Would she still be sleeping? Meditating? Going for a run? Doing dishes? Or laundry? Or performing a Reiki session? Driving to the mountains? Drinking water? Eating a luxurious breakfast in bed? Swimming? Wandering in nature? Sitting in the dimming light of the sunset? Sitting … Continue reading What I Am Doing.
I am feeling restrained by mindfulness this morning. My desire to do *everything* is flared. But this nagging feeling comes in: ‘remember mindfulness, remember this body, embody a regulated nervous system.’ I rebel. I feel this desperate urge to MOVE, to DO, to PRODUCE, to ACHIEVE, and even at this moment, to WRITE. It is … Continue reading To Do or To Untangle.
