INTERMISSION™: Making a Different Choice

INTERMISSION™: Making a Different Choice

INTERMISSION™:

He made me so angry. 😡
She hurt my feelings. 😞
They don't get it or me. 😩

Have you ever thought or said these statements?

At one time or another, I'd guess they've crossed your mind.

How many times have you fired off a retort from that place of pain only to realize that you overreacted and later ended up apologizing? 🖐️ Raising my hand.

It's easy to feel hurt and look to place the cause of that feeling on someone else but we are the ones responsible for how we feel.

If you feel pain, it's coming from a wound inside of you that needs attention, healing and nurturing.

You heal it by becoming aware that it's there, asking yourself some tough questions to gain a better understanding and when faced with a similar situation, you're then able to pause and make a different choice in the moment. (For a deeper dive on questions to ask yourself for a better understanding of what the pain is all about pop on over to my post... Compassionate Expression from May 19, 2020 on social or my blog at 
KarmicKindness.com.) It's important to realize this is a practice so don't beat yourself up if you remain on the same patterns of behavior for a bit before shifting out. It's taken many years to create so its gonna take a little time to unwind.

The beauty lies in the journey and what you learn along the way. 🦋

Remember, we learn from one another. I'd love to hear from you. Xo

INTERMISSION™: The Beauty & Magic of a Single Flower

INTERMISSION™: The Beauty & Magic of a Single Flower

 I posted a picture this morning of a single flower.
A flower that sits on a table in my home.
It was a gift from someone special so it holds even more meaning.

This single flower holds the magic and majesty of nature.🏵️ If you think about it, what did it take for that flower to grow?
Who planted the seed?
Who fed and watered it?
How many hours of sunlight were required for it to sprout, to grow, to bloom? 🌱
How many hands touched it before it made its way to me?

It's pretty profound to think of all the flowers that grow and do their thing without worry or anxiety or fear they're doing something wrong.

They know to grow and bloom.

We have the same ability. To surrender into who we're meant to be.
As Eckhart Tolle says in his book The Power of Now, "to relinquish inner resistance to what is."
And in The New Earth, to "appreciate something simple - a sight, a sound, a touch - when you see beauty, when you feel loving kindness toward another, sense the inner spaciousness that is the source and the background to that experience." then being is bliss.

Doesn't that feel easier?
Isn't that simpler?
We make it harder than it needs to be.

Look at a flower and take in its beauty, complexity and magic while feeling how easy it is to be exactly what you're meant to be when you surrender to what it, to who you are and allow life to unfold as it's meant to be.
(if even for a few minutes a day 😊)! Let me know what you think about the nature of flowers... We learn from one another. Xo

INTERMISSION™: Find Your Tribe & New Journal Bundles

INTERMISSION™: Find Your Tribe & New Journal Bundles

🔥 Hot off the presses...new & improved INTERMISSION Journal Bundles with new prompts that will change how you approach your day/week!



And the card for the week is
THE TRIBE
from Wisdom of the Oracle deck by Colette Baron-Reid

My interpretation of The Tribe is about finding "your people" if you haven't already. People who are like minded but not necessarily the same.
There's beauty in having similar values and interests but there's equal value in learning from our differences too.

Finding your tribe gives you a sense of community and togetherness...of belonging.
As humans, we are wired for connection and belonging. We long for it.

If you've already found your tribe, can you reconnect or contribute in a different way?

Remember we learn from one another so get out out there and share with your tribe!
