Seattle is a changing city. We are experiencing the comings and goings of the milestones that keep us visually orientated in our landscape. It can be very distressing, all this shifting!
I am experiencing the surfacing of anxieties in my body/mind that seem a part of the collective or hive mind. It is a time to put peace as a priority.
Here are two tips for dealing with change anxiety:
1) Develop a practice, and practice. Go to that dance class, sit on that cushion, yoga your balls off! Rinse and repeat. Your daily practice keeps you freshly connected to the NOW.
2) Make a home inside your body. Remember how to sit, stand, breathe. Just burrow into your regal body and claim it as your home. Or, think of yourself as a turtle, who wears her home on her back. Your smile in the mirror is your personal welcome mat. Yay!
