A playlist for calling in ease 🌱
Rhythms made for honey and meeting all that is vast.
As we portal through Fall and into Winter, I created a new playlist for calling in ease. You can listen here.
This playlist was created from a reminder I scribbled onto a sheet of paper this week and smacked into the middle of my mirror:
TAKE A BREATH BABY. SLOW DOWN OR YOU’LL MISS WHAT IT IS YOU’RE LOOKING FOR.
I’m constantly reminding myself to breathe deeply. While making toast: breathe. Getting out of the shower: breathe. Opening my email inbox: breathe. I’ve been becoming aware of how much tension I unconsciously hold in my body. Deep breathing helps me actually feel what’s happening internally. To not intellectualize the feelings, but to notice them, and attune.
“oh, there’s some tension here, let’s soften it.”
Deeply breathing helps me soften, and softening as of late is deeply needed. To see the tension as a guide to what needs to be held.
I HOPE YOU ARE ABLE TO TAKE MANY DEEP BREATHS TODAY.
I HOPE YOU ARE ABLE TO SLOW DOWN WHERE YOU CAN.
I HOPE YOU TREAT YOURSELF AS GENTLY AS POSSIBLE.
Sending much, much love your way.
Sending you much love 🕊.Drink a glass of water after reading this email
Thank you so much for being here.
This newsletter is free to make it accessible to those that can’t monetarily support. But if you are able to afford it and find value in my work - I’d love if you’d consider becoming a paid subscriber for the price of a latte or sending a tip through Paypal. If you are already a paid subscriber, thank you. 💌 Your investment makes it possible for me to keep this newsletter free for marginalized folks, and allows me to keep writing.
15% of all monthly support is also donated to an organization I love and that y’all should love up on too. This month’s investment is going to Freedom Community Clinic.
