RAGE

voices rising

one audible sound climbing on top of the other

egos screaming, “What about me?!”

no one is listening

Love has left the building

darkness looms like a ghost-shadow

silence.

hearts pounding loudly in the night

hurt children in adult bodies

a solitary tear at eyelid’s edge

the heart is choking itself

IT’S ABOUT YOU:

  1. During extreme dark feelings, how do you locate the witness, the One or higher self inside of you who’s watching?
  2. If you’re right where you need to be, even during a difficult time, what’s the lesson in that moment?
  3. How quickly can you welcome Love back home?

Household Chaos

I’ve hit household bottom. I can’t remember the last time I dusted, the plants are wilting, and I had to wear my yoga shorts and top as undergarments today. In other words, time to start at least one load of laundry.

Yet it has been a great week. We’ve enjoyed delicious home cooked meals, we’ve shared quality family time, and I was happy about publishing a fun Wellspring Guideposts. How can these contradictory experiences coexist?

When I feel overloaded, I turn to a CalmUp® Journey. The tendency, of course, is to want to push and get started with the tasks right away: water plants, clean up dishes, give the dogs a bath, etc. Instead, by slowing down and completing the 7 Levels of the CalmUp® Journey, I rise above household chaos.


IT’S ABOUT YOU:

  1. How do you cope when you feel overwhelmed? Do you talk to a friend, go around feeling stressed out, etc.?
  2. In what area(s) of your life do you experience chaos? And in what area(s) of your life are you excelling?
  3. By the end of my day, my home was clean, my laundry was done, and I wrote this blog. What do you do to rise above your own chaos?

How do you weather a storm? Annoyed/bored/dreary OR enthusiastic/lively/playful? Knowing what you know now, how do you think you’ll approach the next one?

Remaining on the yoga mat for a selected amount of time is a terrific analogy for being present and appreciating whatever you’re doing right now. Take a moment for gratitude. The to-do list will still be there when you’re finished.
