It is NEVER quiet between your ears. You feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, not being able to think in peace just adds to the feeling of burden, stress and achy shoulders. Frankly, you feel lost and alone.
Everything feels like it has spiraled out of your control. You feel lost, like an island and no one else understands how you are feeling.
But you are tired, matter of fact, you are past tired…AND you have something that needs your attention, you always have something that needs your attention, but you are fried. Your thoughts have given birth to thoughts.
It is doing anything and everything to get your attention, but the voice in your head is looouud. It has all of your attention and your energy. The voice is so cunning and convincing, it has you believing that its voice is the actual YOU.
Creativity, grace, beauty and the mystique of the Universe lives inside of your body. Everybody. Your feelings allow you to pay attention. To actually, know which way to go and not feel like an island. But you have habitually ignored the slight nudges, the feelings of maybe this isn’t quite right for me until your body has to manifest a cold or feelings of sadness or depression. Everyone has been there, you are not alone.
What are you supposed to do?
(Insert objections of justification and rationalization of why you can’t)
Soothe yourself. Distract yourself. Back away from ‘it’ just for a little while. It seems counter-intuitive, but in fact: creativity and problem-solving skills only show up when there is flow. And the space to receive the messages.
I advise my clients to use their smartphones. Download an app that has meditation music, use headphones and for 15 minutes, close your eyes and breathe. In as little as 10-15 minutes at least once a day will do a myriad of things.
Give it a go: you deserve to have access to ALL of you.
