Do you hear the whispers?

Listen to my body? Are you kidding me?! How can I not hear the screams of my body's chronic pain or that sand-in-my-veins fatigue or the dizzying haze of the brain fog?! Don't tell me that I don't listen to my body. I can't NOT listen!

That's what I said when someone tried to tell me that I needed to listen to my body 7 years ago. I was doing all the right things--eating well, exercising, raising a healthy family, working a fulfilling part-time job--and feeling great until... I wasn't. This vibrant health was seemingly there one day and completely snatched from me the next.

Old Program - New Program

I attended a talk by a spiritual teacher several years ago that was largely beyond my grasp. My soul or spiritual awareness was in its infancy at that time (who knows, maybe it still is!). What I certainly didn’t realize is how much wisdom is stored within our physical bodies just waiting for us to acknowledge.

Are you wasting your energy?

I like to know people. And I don't mean know about people, but really know them.

But I think there's a bit more to it. Maybe you can relate.

Screen Fatigue

I'm tired. Not physically tired. Not even mentally tired. But more spiritually tired. And this fatigue seems to have its roots in the digital world. I'm not referring to EMF exposure (though, that's possibly another good reason to take a break from our devices every once in a while). No, this depletion of the spirit has more to do with the disconnect from reality that has been nudging me back to stillness more and more recently.

Today.

Today we celebrate. We celebrate the first harvest with friends and family. We gobble turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. We maybe engage in a well-informed political spat with those we love. 😳 We talk with others (possibly more than we would like).

On any other day, if I were to ask you who you talk to the most, how would you respond?
