THE BENEFITS OF ENTERING INTO THE SILENCE ZONE

I have been on such an emotional trip lately. And during one of my dark days, my partner and I were driving somewhere, with me in the passenger seat. I was feeling so anxious, and for a moment, I just closed my eyes. Breathing silently, I began focusing on the blackness behind my eyelids. And after only a few seconds, I started to feel instant relief for the first time in days and days. I go in and out of my meditation practice (I am currently so out right now). But in this moment, it was impossible to ignore the benefits of silence. What’s crazy is how easily I forget, and how long I let myself go without stepping into silence. So, for your information, but also to remind myself, I want to dive deep into exploring the benefits of entering into the silence zone.

ADULTING IS HARD AND I’M STRUGGLING WITH IT RIGHT NOW

I don’t know if it’s because Mercury is in Retrograde, or what. This planet retrogrades from May 29th to June 22nd 2021, and with this galactic chaos comes implicit problems with communication and technology, among other things. I openly admit that I do not do well when things are out of my control. And a lot of adulting often consists of dealing with shit that I don’t have much control over. I can typically handle this kind of thing in small doses. But as this retrograde unfolds, and more and more shit becomes uncontrollable, I’m finding that adulting is hard, and I’m super struggling with it right now.

IMPROVE YOUR LIFE BY LEARNING TO LISTEN

I am a decent listener in some aspects. In other areas, not so much. First off, I love to talk. I love to express and I love to share. You would think that would make me a terrible listener. However, I ultimately enjoy making authentic connections with others, and I know enough to know that you can’t connect with people unless you REALLY listen to them and take a genuine interest in what they have to say. It’s called “being a good conversationalist” and I think I have that on lockdown. However, there is always room for improvement. Continue reading IMPROVE YOUR LIFE BY LEARNING TO LISTEN

THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION FOR CONTROL FREAKS

I am a controlling person, an anal-retentive Virgo, and a watered-down hypochondriac. Fearful of many things, I like when everything is in its place. I like when people do what I want them to do. And I don’t like when people do what I don’t want them to do (or don’t do what I want … Continue reading THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION FOR CONTROL FREAKS

MANAGE FEAR LIKE A GODDESS

I’m frenemies with fear, and have been for my entire life. Every part of this definition incisively describes my lifelong relationship with fear, with the exception of describing fear as a person. Also, I would replace the word “friendly” with “familiar,” but other than that, razor sharp accuracy. Although I suppose everyone feels this way … Continue reading MANAGE FEAR LIKE A GODDESS

THE GODDESS ATTAINABLE COMMITS TO MEDITATION

I have attempted meditation many times in my adult life, and I have never quite taken to it. I think I’m pretty good at not beating myself up about “doing it wrong,” and I understand there are so many different ways to meditate. As long as the meditator attempts to achieve some kind of mental … Continue reading THE GODDESS ATTAINABLE COMMITS TO MEDITATION

HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL

I feel so much gratitude this week, coming off of a rich and inspirational weekend with my tribe. Last year, for the first time, we decided to rent a house in the woods of Pennsylvania for a weekend, and the trip was cathartic and beautiful and amazing. We decided to do the same thing again … Continue reading HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL
