I have come to trust life completely, trust even the times when I forget how to trust at all, trust that life doesn't always go according to plan, because there is no plan, only life, and even the times of great uncertainty hold supreme intelligence, and sometimes you have to fall to stand more fearlessly, with greater kindness.
And somehow I am always held, in a way I cannot explain and do not want to. I may be crushed yet again before too long, I may experience further seemingly insurmountable challenges and heartbreaks, but somehow I am always held. Somehow I am always held.
- What does trust feel like in in your body? how do you know when you are trusting a situation? another person? yourself?
- How does trust happen? like what is the physiology in your body brain heart soul connection?
- Is trust a choice? or is trust something that just spontaneously happens?
- What happens to your body when you go from a non trusting state to a trusting state and vice-versa
- Does trust happen in your mind or does trust happen in your body in your intuition?
- What happens when you can’t figure out who or what to trust? Can you trust anything? can you trust everything?
- What if ultimately the only thing you can trust is the knowledge that when not if the shit hits the fan you will be able to take care of and save the only life you can which is yours?
- Have you ever fully trusted another? yourself? the universe?
- What is the opposite of trust?
-How do you know that you are trustworthy? and are you? if so when, and with who? who trusts you, and why? Did you have to earn it?
-What happens when you have broken trust? with yourself with another? how do you repair? is that repair more important ultimately than the rupture incurred by the broken ness of trust?
-What it like to say “hey I’m here, I got you” to yourself so that you can learn to repair your relationship with yourself? and if you’ve never done that what would it be like to try that right now?
Notes on SLEEP
Today, I wanted to offer you a potion concoction (tea) for SLEEP
In it, there are a couple of adaptogenic herbs and a couple of nervines
As you may recall, nervines are herbs that support your nervous system and adaptogens stabilize physiological processes, offering balance
Adaptogens and nervines work really well together for sleep
First, Reishi Mushroom. You can use the actual dried mushroom. You can use a sliver or two or you can use powder.
Reishi is like “meditation in mushroom form’ It can help prolong sleep times. She’s both a nervine and adaptogen
Next up, ashwagandha helps balance cortisol levels and help improve sleep quality
Skullcap is a tranquilizer. It helps to relieve muscle tension, teeth grinding, restless leg sydrome, etc…
Last but not least, Rose. Rose helps calm the heart as well as the physical body. It can also be a relaxing mood elevator.
You can put all of these herbs in a jar, pour hot water over them, add milk and or honey, or drink straight-up. Drink as much as you like and store the rest in the fridge.
