Life can feel very scary when fear overshadows our perspective. Fear is our ego, and when left unattended wreaks havoc on our lives. We may be able to dodge life’s intensity when there are no glaring challenges, but when life ramps up, and crisis appears, our reflective practices become our lifeline. In challenging times, we may feel like there is no way out, but there always is! Reach for tools that soothe you and watch what happens. Go to these practices, trust and dedicate yourself to them. Trust that every time you choose practices that soothe you, instead of jumping into fear’s black hole, you train the brain to understand that there is always a way out of every difficulty.
5 of My Favorite Healing Practices:
  1. Meditate Learn how to meditate, breath and flow with life. Do yoga and walk in nature. Feel these experiences inside your life and do more of what makes you feel whole and happy.
  2. Create practices and rituals for real lifeStart a journal and write down your dreams, create delicious healing recipes, celebrate the full moon and other astrological events, breathe consciously.
  3. Get close to natureTake note of what you see on walks in the forest, beaches, mountains, rivers and streams. Let animals be your teacher and guide.
  4. Express YourselfWrite, draw, make music, dance, learn a new language. Notice how you feel when you engage in a creative expression of you.
  5. Understand what makes you most happy Not in a quick fix kind of way, but in a way that moves you to tears because you are doing exactly what you have come here to do in this lifetime.

Get to know yourself, make it a priority. Listen to your body, mind, heart and spirit, remember which tools make you feel most comforted. Turn these tools into rituals and do them often. Repetition and consistent practice will give you a connection and a feeling of safety. Your commitment to the practice will hold your heart when it feels like life is falling out from under you. Take faith in your power, dedication, and ability to heal your life.
