It’s been one of those weeks where my attempt to keep up with all that's going on in my world has left me overstimulated and disconnected by day's end. It's not a mystery how I got here. I’m good at pushing myself past my natural limits and letting the momentum that accumulates in that mode move me along. How I cut through the pattern is what I want I want to share. Somatic meditation brought me back to my body in a big way. It’s what I used this week to slow down and cut through the lie my over-driven ego kept whispering ( "just one more thing, and then I’ll stop…"). If you find yourself a bit depleting at times, spending more energy than you actually have, try this 30-minute somatic meditation-- it will support your reconnection with your body and the earth (many of you who have taken yoga classes with me will recognize this practice and enjoy this longer session). This is a perfect late afternoon or just-home-from-work practice, but truly good anytime you can get to it.
The good news is, you don’t have to wait until you’re feeling fragmented or de-vitalized to try a meditation break. If you’re already feeling pretty good, this practice may make you feel even better. Let me know how you like it in the comments below. Love to you, Shannon
