We all get stuffed up. Congested. Clogged. Held captive by the unexpressed desires and needs of our souls longing. We use our ego to strive for external social ideals, when deep inside we want more. We crave. We want. We yearn for connection. We get bogged down by ideas of what is right and wrong, and constantly measure ourselves against an invisible barometer of arbitrary acceptance.
This can show up in our relationships and in our communication with others. It can show up in our bodies, physical manifestation of fogginess in the head, nose, throat area. We can feel weighed down, uncertain and unclear, in both thought and action. We are in a season of transition, where parts of ourselves are dying off, and we have a chance to go into hibernation with specifics intentions for transformation.
Now is a perfect time of year to begin to consciously clear the air of your own experience.
What do you want to breathe new life into?
What is ready to be cleared and released from this past year?
Let us ferociously move into a new version of ourselves as we enter into the darkness of incubation. It is a good time to express what needs to be said. Share the very thing you think you could never let anyone know. I did this the other day, and my heart exploded open into joyous wonder of delightful vulnerability.
It is a powerful thing to open ourselves to the process of radical self acceptance. To lean into the place we have been led to believe is unacceptable. By doing this, we rewire ourselves, and actively participate in the self-examination process and re-coding of ourselves into a new way of being in the world. A way of showing up that is in full alignment with our soul’s calling.
What if you accepted yourself today and did the thing you think is not allowed?
What would that look like? What would that feel like?
Who would you be if you did something you are scared of today? Share with me!
Today’s breath practice will support you through a deeper self-inquiry by activating the glandular system and expanding the lungs. The vagus nerve is stimulated, and the ears, nose, throat and entire upper half will be stimulated. Do this practice and then spend a few minutes writing and reflecting on today’s questions. Are you willing to push your edges with me? Stretch yourself. Have an experience with yourself today! Let me know how it goes!
