Why do we need science?

How come we've become a society getting high on science? Why do we always crave it? Why do we trust it so much? How come we need to wait for science until we try something new? 

I know I'm generalizing now but I find it's interesting that the worst thing sometimes seems to be claiming something to be true without having science to back it up. 

We used to know how to heal. Many indigenous tribes and cultures still do. We used to follow what felt good before what proved true in a science report. We all have all the wisdom we need inside of us. Where did we loose it? 

If it makes you feel good go for it. If it doesn't hurt you or someone else, give it a try. We're not giving ourselves credit for what we already know or maybe for what we just need to remember. What if you would trust your instinct or intuition a little more today? What would change for you? 

With all my love,

The choice is always yours

You always have a choice to decide how you want to react. You can always choose your perception.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. Viktor E. Frankl
 

Do you realize what potential lies in this? You never have to be a victim. I know, as humans, sometimes we do, but we don't need to stay there for long. Choose what you want to do with that space. It's never about the circumstances. There's plenty of people who has it all but still kill themselves because of their misery and more people with nothing who are perfectly happy with their life. 

We live in a society and time that tries to convince us that it's about the external stuff. Don't buy it. It's not true. 

With all my love,

When words are not enough

We live in a society all wrapped up in the left brain thinking. Logical, rational, expressable (not sure that last one is even a word, but never mind). I've always been a person of words. I've always loved writing, talking, singing - expressing myself. But I've come to realize, in this last year of exploring my own high sensitivity, that some things are difficult to put into words. 

I try and try but somehow there's a disconnect. There are some things I just can't explain. I've resisted this and tried again. I'm learning now to accept this. Sometimes I meet people that know exactly what I mean, and that's a relief. We talk with our hearts. 

I think we spend far to much time wrapped up in our logical mind, when we really are spiritual beings with our mind and our words as some of the tools we have to express ourselves. I understand now why yoga is such an important outlet for me, why 5rythms keep drawing me in, why I need more community in silence. My heart wants to talk now. Heart, you're welcome to center stage! 

With all my love,
