“Life is an unfoldment, and the further we travel the more truth we comprehend. To understand the things that are at our door is the best preparation for understanding those that lie beyond.”
I invite you to take a deep, cleansing breath
all the way down to your toes.
Then take another one,
Let peace settle onto your shoulders.
Let your heart expand.
Let your breaths be easy, easy.
And, then, let your thoughts drift and soar...
What is unfolding for you?
What is right outside your door?
What is your next step?
This week, I offer a brief audio with a deeper exploration of what I mean by "witnessing without fixing." I wanted to include this before I move on to other topics for the rest of September.
Questions from this audio:
Remember, if witnessing without fixing doesn't work for you/doesn't apply in your own life, that is totally fine. It is not a promise or a "must do." If it doesn't resonate, consider other options of what might work for you in sitting with, processing, and/or working through or with your difficult or "unwanted" feelings.
- How might you apply Jen Louden's three step process for breaking the fear cycle?
- How do you discern when to witness and when to act? Is there a way to bring the two together?
- What happens when you let an unwanted/negative feeling fully land in your body, let it wash through you? Do you find it loses impact and drifts away or does it nestle in to roost?
May you exhale your weariness
and let it softly drift away.
May you cup your hands together
around the gentle whispers
of your deepest dreams.
May you allow your wildest prayers
to drift into your heart
and may you breathe in
the necessary courage
to spin them into being.
