It's super sunny today, I taught my first Zoom yoga class, my mom attended, it was super sweet! It's going on Day 10 today and I am really feeling the sense of others anxiety, friends and family affected. I worked on sending Reiki to all this afternoon, blanketing the fears of those I love with love and light. I am brought to the thought that our only control is our ability to measure our reactions and responses to things. Last night I couldn't sleep, I wasn't tired, was restless and so I turned to my phone which ended up filling my head with salacious words to really sell the story of what is happening. I watched and noticed the visceral effect this had on my body of feeling ungrounded, and fearful and I closed my phone and consciously took myself outside my thoughts, wrapped all those I love and myself in giant bubbles of white light. I used this visual from an animated movie I saw years ago depicting emotions as people called Inside Out. I made these emotions in me like little people, I know it sounds funny, this is a great visualization for kids so even if it doesn't work for you try a meditation like this for them. You ask them to imagine, embody their fear, happy, envy, anger and sad into actual people, what would they look like: One by one you ask them to let go of them and just be with who they are without each of these emotions taking up residence. So I did, just that and then surrounded myself in white light. I choose to have slow reactions, measured responses. My mom used to say to me, the dramatic child and young adult that I was, "not too high with the highs, not to low with the lows." I think about this simple statement now as the middle way.
Loving the new playlist I found, enjoy!
