Use all of your potential

Only 5% of our awareness is conscious, working in the logic and rational left brain. 95% is unconscious - 95%! Logic thinking, rationalizing and analyzing are not always the smartest thing to do, honestly it's rarely the smartest thing to do. When we unleash our full potential, our intuition, our emotional intelligence, our silent experience and knowledge - that's where the magic happens. 

This is something I need to remind myself of often. I'm so caught up in my left brain all the time. Sure, I meditate and do yoga daily, and in those instances I leave the left brain out. I spend time in nature and I go on silent retreats where I dwell in the unspoken wisdom of my soul. But still, in my daily life, when going about my day, I'm so entangled. 

I practice letting go. I practice surrendering. I practice being more than doing. Feeling more than thinking. I practice. I'm far from there. But practice makes perfect, right?

How much time are you spending in your limited 5%? 

With all my love,
Helena

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,

Helena
