Excuse me, my love.
Excuse me, while I interrupt your regular programming.
So much of my personal practice and my professional practice involves finding these pockets of space to interrupt the unconscious programming we mindlessly allow to run our lives.
For my anxious ones-- When the spiral of anxiety tries to take over and that hamster wheel in your mind is spinning wildly. Interrupt, by looking for everything blue around you, and see if you can imagine breathing through your heart space and lifting the heavy weight on your chest.
For my codependent, people pleasing folks-- Next time you feel the pressure or responsibility for other's experiences and emotions, take two seconds for this visualization. Imagine you are in a big bubble, and reach down and zip that bubble closed from the bottom to the top, creating an energetic boundary to help you gain clarity on what is yours to hold and what belongs to others.
For those who feel depressed and heavy with shame and sadness-- Can you take a moment to interrupt the program and find something in that moment you are grateful for? Even if it the air that is readily available for you to breathe each moment, or the kind thing that person said to you 17 years ago.
When we find these little windows to interrupt the programs that are running, we can begin to mindfully interject different perspectives and break down the unconscious aspect of suffering.
