Ciao Amica Mia,
This week my friend Clarissa Burt invited me on her show, In The Limelight, to lead a livestream guided meditation for the Equinox. I’m happy to be able to share it with you today – you’ll find the audio link at the bottom.
Now more than ever it’s time to double down on our spiritual practices. It’s so easy to get caught up in the external noise that feeds our fears, when what we need is to hear the voice of our own inner wisdom.
As an introvert, I find it fairly easy to snuggle in and be with my little family. Yet, I also miss my students and community. So, I understand if you’re feeling untethered and uncertain.
Years ago, when I was mired in a very scary place, my teacher at the time counseled me, “Paulette, it’s important that you insulate, not isolate.”
I share those words with you as they were an anchor for me then and now. Over the last few weeks I recommended a number of ideas of how you might insulate.
And, I will continue to remind you as we are mirrors for one another, and it helps to serve as a reminder to myself.
Nourish yourself with healthy foods and teas
Read and listen to uplifting music
Watch movies that inspire
Get on your mat, dance, go for a walk – in other words please move
Develop a spiritual practice and a ritual
Light candles and incense
Reach out to a friend who lives alone
Be informed without over-indulging
This is a perfect time to commit to doing your inner work. If not now, then when?
Stay well my friend.
Please reach out to me if you’re feeling anxious or in need of support. We’re in this together and together we’ll make it through.
