Our Calls.

In life, sometimes we only want to respond to our big, romantic, glamourous life calls, but fail to realize that in order to reach those, we must first respond to the unromantic, sometimes hard daily calls.

For example, maybe you are craving to be called into a life where you are excited about your job and the people around you. Maybe you have this “ideal” in your head that sounds lovely that you become easily excited by. But, every morning when your alarm goes off, you groan and dread it. Wake up! You are being called to be apart of today. You are being called to put in work for right now, for your future self.

You may find these conflicting calls in several areas of your life- whether it be from work, diet, romance, etc. So I urge you to not just focus on the pretty finished picture, but the smaller, everyday calls you are receiving. What are you pretending not to know?

Until next time,

The important message I learned being sick.

I was planning on uploading a favorites for spring post…but yesterday I came down with a head-cold and have spent a lot of today home, being silent with myself. I’ve spent a lot of today listening to my body, and not crowding it with unnecessary thoughts that were being brought up questioning going away from the “routine” I know. I took this time to slow down my mind, which I thought I was already doing, but something about being ill MAKES you slowwww down. I realized these things: my body wanted a lot of fruit and water, closing my eyes felt so good, I didn’t feel compelled to talk all that much-I really preferred being silent, breathing slowly felt right, and that everything we feel throughout the day really matters.

I went to my usual Tuesday yoga class and something really struck me. I heard my instructors words at the beginning of class with an incredibly powerful force, everything she said clicked without effort. It really became clear to me that for most of the day information and facts are being spat at me, and my by the time I get to yoga my brain is over receiving all this “stuff”. But today, I was open and I was so prepared for receiving. After my yoga class, I realized that today I was listening to my heart and my body much more than my mind, which is usually buzzing and my main source for intuition. Being sick makes me remember that the body really is the wisest source of intuition, and it reminds me that every inch of our being is connected, and that this body really is our only home.

Until next time,

Claire
