It’s Not Easy Being Sensitive These Days!

For sensitive people, shifts can feel monumental. 

And it’s SO easy to get trapped in a worried, anxious mind.  But I think we’ve spent enough time there, haven’t we? Covid has asked our bodies to slow down, yet our minds keep racing into a fearful future or a non-existent past. 

Wouldn’t it be nice to make a shift to get out of the “shoulds, what-if’s, I can’t, what’s next” mind and return to actually being here? 

Mindfulness is great, but what I’m practicing now is simple and even more powerful. 

Here’s the shift:

Old way                                                                   New Way

Busy                                                                         Present

Values Achievement                                    Feeling good is the priority

Work harder                                                        Quality of relationships

Competition                                                          Collaboration together

Push through                                                            Listening to my body

Doing                                                                         Being

Intelligence                                                                Wisdom

Judging                                                   Openness to seeing everything 

Accumulation of wealth                                 Re-evaluation of priorities

Power                                                             Empathy and inclusiveness

In shifts like this, we often know very well what we don’t want anymore…
 
anxiety
fear
exhaustion
pain
 
And here’s the thing: It hurts on the way out, hence the explosion of ugliness we might see around us.  Things that had been held under the surface in tension for so long have to be released and they look like problems.
 
But what DO you want and can you move towards that?
 
Curiously, when what you DO want gets centre stage,the annoyances, irritations, and pain often take a back seat.
 
What do you value so much that you can make it centre stage of your life and move towards that?
 
As empaths, we get guarded and protective about life and so we should.
 
But the magic happens when we’ve lived there long enough in isolation and yearn for something more open, more connected, more…

I can’t wait to move with you from mind to body,
 
From stress to peace,
From “I should” to “I am”,
From scared to safely saying “YES” to life!
 
It’s time. Hope to see you there!
