Whenever you're down, whenever you are sad or scared, lonely or lost, unsure or uninspired, whenever you're stuck in your head creating (or tapping through IG) stories that are not real or your own, pause. Just stop.
.
Look up from whatever you're doing (namely looking down), take a deep breath in--and then a little more, and slowly, completely exhale. For an extra moment dwell on this empty space. Soften into it. And then come back in to remembering--recognize you're grace.
.
You have been blessed with a human life. You've been given at least a couple limbs to move around, a few senses to take in your environment. You've been given food and water and some sort of shelter for many years. You're on this incredible and diverse rock that contains multitudes. You've got this amazing brain that thinks that we're beginning to sort of understand, and a consciousness that is mostly a giant mystery. You are breathing and heart beating among billions of other human beings, and trillions of other creatures on a journey through the universe! You've been given all these wondrous things to help you survive and widen your aperture of awareness a little more. Watch a branch rustle in the wind, or a child squeal with glee, or the sun dance on a crystal, or a puppy just looking so immensely cute. You're IT. You don't need to do or be anything more. You are plenty.
.
Now, if you'd like, return to those previous sticky emotions and mental swirl. Return to what was holding you back and felt so yuck and wrong and painful and distracting. I hope it doesn't feel quite as strong. That you've remembered, even for a breath, that you are absolutely Divine and part of a magic beyond anyone's comprehension. You can always come back into remembering.
