Mantras For The Rest Of Us


I don’t know about you but for me sometimes all I can do is- talk myself forward. In my body, in my mind, in my soul, and in my spirit. And these days it is definitely only one of those at a time. I am all discombobulated.

There have been many times in my life that I feel very present with all of me at the same time- centered is probably a good word for it. It’s not that I’m not centered these days or doing the things that help me be centered...

meditation

body work

getting in nature

payer

mindfulness

And for the most part these things are still working to a degree, but not in the same way they have worked in the past. The difference is I am tired and all the things I do to mitigate the anxiety, stress, and trauma are working more like walking through thick sludge. Yes, they are working and I hate to think how I would feel without these tools, but the way their working is different.

I realized on a run today that I had to say one of my mantras over and over to feel connected in my body.

I am in my body

of my body

with my body

This helped me be in my body.

I then realized that my presence with myself is more compartmentalized than I like or am typically comfortable with and I just need to be okay with that. For right now I just have to do what I can do!

Call myself forward

One step at a time

And try to love myself in and through this uncomfortable time.

I hope you can do that to.

Talk yourself forward

one step at a time

body

mind

soul

spirit

one step at a time


Love,
