STop It JUst Stop it

I'm taking a break from Technology. I'm going to honor that I'm a mystic. Mystics need space. they need beauty. air. I'm going to to find it and trust that its all coming together. resisting doesn't help the process.

Gasping for air

When my soul tells me to go to the beach, I gotta listen. I'm sitting in a Starbucks right now doing some catching up on emails. GUESS WHAT! its not FLOWING! its creating more frustration. its time to get away from the screen and connect with the Mother, the EARTH and reach out and touch someone's life in a deep and profound way.  I so often think I don't have a space in this world
wanted to share some support from Madaline Avon:

A way to make up for the lack of security we feel so deeply: 'I am not safe in this world', 'I don't have a space in this world', 'this world cannot contain me'.

First, feel into this insecurity and experience it fully. Feel where in your body the emotion is strongest. Put a hand over this place on your body and simply breath into that area.
 
Then, when you feel ready, begin to change your old belief with a mantra such as this one: 'My presence on this Earth is Divinely orchestrated. Simply because of my Being, my presence and contribution give profound and exceptional blessings to this world and the people in it. I am home.'

Practicing patience

I am grateful for smooth bus connections to get me to the 534 bus that got me to Malibu. I had $9.75 in cash. A day pass is $7, its 75 cents extra to ride on the freeway.  I was definitely living on the edge. Its worth it to get to the coast. Debit cards don't take you places. Its good to get out of the thick of the city.

Resurfacing

There are days, weeks I haven't posted. Do my ideas matter? are they important? can I humbly trust in what I have to share is worthwhile, much needed, and please do share. People want to hear. Salivating to hear, maybe not. As I wrote out my gratitude list, I said I AM GRATEFUL for Abundant time to meditate, be of service and choose what I WANT to do. DO I do what brings me joy? not always. I'm grateful for my momentary friendships. Lets live in the romance of the moment!

Laughter at LACMA

It an overcast day in LA and I've got my laughter sign with me. I've taken 5 buses today, thats enough to drive a person to detox. Bleccch! Today I got back into the laughter groove sharing a session with 3 women in Malibu-HELLO-I'm not in Kansas anymore. Bottom line, we ALL have daily stress, and laughter is a tool to shift it.

All powerful, now to share MORE!

Its always great to be in that space where I feel clear and I can share from a place of strength and be affirmed YES! this is my gift.  The sun is shining, its clear and so too is my path as I have faith in putting my experience towards the future of mental health. Today I
I led a Laughter session at Safe Haven in Arroyo Grande. 
Safe Haven gives support to people with mental health issues ranging from depression, trauma, and anxiety.
 I led a small group with gentle stretches, breathing techniques and laughing for no reason. Its great to see people‚Äôs faces relax and arms uncrossed. A mother and son were in the group and I enjoyed watching their smiles and hearing laughter. One of my favorite exercises is speaking gibberish; allowing us to speak nonsense.  

I have been practicing Laughter Yoga since 2009 and find it a powerful technique to stimulate my nervous system and create positive neural pathway.
At the end of the session, I brought out essential oils to share. Scent can balance our moods and levels of serotonin. I highly recommend a Laughing session to open up areas where you may feel stuck or come together.
