"Life is equally inspiring as it is painful. Equally full of truths as it is deceit. Equally as loving as it is brutal.....Pain can be prohibitive to our education at times. Biology tells us to recoil when an open wound is touched, and our psychology often follows this formula. However, we must learn to push past the survival brain’s signals sometimes so that we can get to the deeper meaning that a situation holds. " - Channi Nicholas .
I have decided to share the (surface) story of my growth with the world. Living with Lyme Disease and PTSD has not been picture perfect, but has shown me some of the most beautiful transformation. If you'd like to find out more, there is a link in my bio, that has a link to the story. There is also room for donation if you'd like to support my further education, medical expenses for the summer. I am so grateful for all of the guidance and support I've received since day 1, validation and unconditional love are the most powerful medicine. 🌱🌿🌚💪🏻🕉 #summeroflife#traumainformedyoga#thebreathenetwork#natureheals
When things get complicated. When desire and lack rule your thought constructs. When distraction reigns and your identity is based on the accumulation of your history, your reactions, your habits, and your emotions. When you feel muddled amongst all this and more.
Return to what is real. What can you directly experience--with total concentration? What can you know for sure?
You are luminous and real underneath and with it all. You are none of these things. And yet you perceive what is real through the same mind that gets distracted by these thought constructs. What activities brings you closer to what is real and sacred? 🙏🏼
I like to squish my toes in the mud. To walk barefoot on the earth and feel her healing touch. I like to journal about what I see, inside and out...and see what thoughts pour out.
I like to light some candles and practice yoga.
I like to crank up the tunes and slow dance with my honey, or jam out on aerials
How do you connect with what is real? How do you let all of your constructs slowly fall away?
Breath deep, my friends, you are exactly where you are supposed to be. ❤️
