When you don't know what to do
Tonight I'm hosting a free 30-minute meditation session via zoom.
I'm planning to teach you two kundalini yoga meditations. They're both pretty simple:
* Meditation for When You Don't Know What To Do — I did this one yesterday morning and immediately afterwards felt a wave of courage to have a conversation I'd been hiding from for a while. Through that conversation, I got some amazing mind-blowing clarity.
* Moon Kriya — this is a moving meditation with a very simple mantra. It is said to remove fatigue and bring clarity. If you've never done a chanting meditation before, here's a chance to give it a try. It probably seems weird but it feels good!
These meditations are meant to give you insight and clarity as we go into the first new moon of 2018. This is a very powerful time to set intentions for the year and get your wheels in motion.
I hope you can join!
I also want to share with you this amazing quote I discovered yesterday, in my trip down mind-blowing clarity lane, written by Pearl S. Buck. I'm changing the pronouns because it's not 1934 anymore:
“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To her... a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, her very breath is cut off from her. She must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency she is not really alive unless she is creating.”
― Pearl S. Buck
THAT is where I live my life, so exquisitely caught between the pain of intensely feeling everything, just wanting to numb myself or retreat into my cocoon, but feeling compelled to create, to share, to contribute in my own tiny way.
When I failed to recognize this and allowed myself to be numb or to hide for too long, I became chronically ill.
P.S. Mark your calendar and join the video call tonight at 6pm PST! https://zoom.us/j/472985169
