I never notice the birds. 🦅 🐦
Squirrels don't even register. 🐿️
Even dogs are invisible to me. 🐩 🐕
Am I an a-hole? 😈
But mostly, it's because my eyes are down and my head is completely full.
Do you feel like that? Your mind just won't rest.
You are inundated with to-do's, ruminating over previous conversations and second-guessing every word you said, how do you handle your son who is struggling, that problem at work that requires real focus and analysis, endless pings and notifications from Slack/text/email/FB/TT/Polo/GroupMe and the list goes on and on.
If you had a visual, it would look like your brain was overflowing like a broken toilet. 🚽
Um, MAKE IT STOP! How do you get the busy brain to a more manageable level.
Where you can see clearly again.
And I found a secret. So freaking simple and you are going to roll your eyes 🙄 when I tell you.
But stay with me for a second.
There's a way to heal this overloaded mind and do it almost instantly.
Mirrors in the Earth by Asia Suler is a life-changing book. I HIGHLY recommend it.
Since I have the attention span of a flea, sitting down to read it was a hell no. But listening? Wow. It's a visceral experience.
Asia's lilting voice and her purely poetic writing will instinctively slooooow you down and illuminate EVERYTHING around you 🌳 🌺 🦅 🍂 🍃 in the most beautiful and healing way.
What if you had the power to tune out the noise that rattles you, drags you down, and disregulates you - and amplify your place in the world in the most beautiful, natural way?
INVITATION: Next time you are agitated or stressed, go outside for 3 minutes. Aim your focus on hearing the birds and noticing how it makes you feel in your body. Take note of how your body responds when you feel the sun on your face or the air on your skin. That's it! Only 3 minutes. Rinse. Repeat.
There is NOTHING wrong with you. You are not broken. And you CAN be connected in the most profound way again.
And I got to interview the great author, herbalist, Vassar alum, reiki master, and earth intuitive, Asia Suler on the podcast today!
You will never NOT notice the beauty around you after learning this in this way.
What a gift! I can't wait for you to hear all about it.
