Soul Comfort

Comfort

What comforts your soul?

It’s a damp foggy Monday morning here in the middle of Ireland, and I feel like my soul needs some comfort.


It’s usually much easier to figure out what the body, the emotions and the personality need for comfort, and more often than not it is something external. Spending time with loved ones, listening to music, enjoying your favourite nature walk, the list is endless, it is also dependent on your personal preferences.


What comforts the soul, however, is different because it is internal, and it doesn’t depend on the desires of the individual. What comforts the soul is connection, stillness, consciousness.
Today, my soul and I are having a ‘duvet day’ beginning with meditation, as few distractions as possible, and a lot of love.

Be Gentle First With Yourself

Looking Heavenward

 

Too often we find it much easier to be kind and gentle with others, when in fact we should begin by being kind and gentle with ourselves. What could you do today which would be gentle to YOU?

mindfullness isnt hard

Be Kind


Be Kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle

The death of Robin Williams has really touched me deeply. How sad is it that a man who brought so much laughter to so many, was so tormented himself. If one good thing can come out of it, it is that so many people are talking about depression today. All over Facebook people are saying, if you feel depressed talk about it, don’t bottle it up, there is no shame in it, and if someone you know is depressed, be there for them and just listen. However, there are many forms of depression. Hormone imbalances, including post natal or menopausal, changes in brain chemicals, brain injuries, many things can bring about depression, and sometimes that type of depression needs more than just a heart-to-heart. I had post natal depression after my son was born, and for a long time I tried to deal with it myself. It wasn’t until my GP prescribed anti-depressants that the fog started to lift. I wasn’t on them for very long, and in fact if I had my hormones checked I would have been on medication for an even shorter time. My point is, it is not always just a matter of thinking positively, or talking about it, or changing your situation. Sometimes you need help to get back to balance, and there is certainly no shame in that.

That’s OK fear, I got this!

Thats ok fear I got this

 

Can you feel it? Can you feel the shift?

The shift out of fear and into love. I certainly can. As a sensitive, one of my biggest fears is being SEEN, being noticed. Ironic really that I am finding myself guided to a life purpose of working in an area where to get my message across, I have no choice but be seen, be heard, and be noticed.

At the Mind Body Spirit festival in March, I gave my first presentation.

In front of people.

In public! :-)

I was so scared! I couldn’t sleep at all the night before my talk was scheduled, and couldn’t eat for the entire day. Now, I am not a nervous type of person and may even come across as confident, but the thought of  standing up in front of a large (60+) group of people left me a quivering wreck. But you know what? I did it, and I plan to do it again. Why? Why would I knowingly and willingly put myself into a position where I feel fear?

That’s where the shift comes in, the shift out of fear and into love. Fear is shrinking and love is expanding. Don’t get me wrong, the fear is still there, but it is no longer in charge. Love is now in charge, my love of my work, my love of my purpose, and my love for every person who sees me, hears me, notices me. Suddenly, fear is taking a back seat, because the people I speak to, the clients I do readings for, they are bigger than the fear, they are more important than the fear.

So that’s OK fear, I got this now, you can go! ;-)
