“Not taking things personally” can be a tough job being a human with emotions and a body! When criticism, harshness, judgment, lashing out, gaslighting, and other reactions from another person can hit us where it hurts, here are some tools to support healing and resolving where it hurts so it’s not just a forced “tough skin” but an organic neutrality or wholeness that leaves us able to be present to what is.

Work with ways to heal the shadow and allow harmony where others push their shadow parts your way. A deep love for yourself, which is loving for all.

At the very least, to digest the emotions we feel when triggered and to experience separation and boundary that gives us room to breathe, feel safer, and more loved from the inside.

Two experientials follow this episode next week where I guide you through a shift through distance and space, boundary, forgiveness, and separation from dependency, as well as to look towards and heal the part of us that gets wounded.

Following the feelings behind worthlessness, I wanted to disappear and dissolve.

In a good way!

How could that be?

Find out in this unexpected experience of dissolution and getting lost what I recovered for myself in terms of my own right to my life.

Also in this episode, thoughts on how our existences can be in harmony, how polarity and opposition are part of a dynamic that emerges from the same underlying energies and finding the neutral, eventually.

Destruction, dismantling, burning things up. A quiet clearing, despair, grieving, integration, dust settling. Looking. When it’s time to create anew and there’s space for sweet tendrils and sprouts, what do you align, anchor, or calibrate to? For me it’s pleasure in a deep and whole way, yet sweet and joyful.

In this episode, I talk about the ripening of difficult feelings in uncomfortable situations, respecting yourself and seeing the spiritual agenda, and some recent experiences that triggered some Chinese American ancestral dynamics. And that I’m home in Michigan and what I’m doing here now!

Tentative and tender — quivery and sweet.

Get lost into love, get lost from the roadmap.

Everything is a nudge, back to home, to yourself.

Life exists as you. Play. Whales, the pulse of the Ocean.

This [reverie] episode is a channeled message from from the Ocean — While it is spoken through me, they may be your words too.

You exist here and inherently belong. It’s a given.

Do I let myself change? Do I really let the guards come down?

I want to be simply and naturally who I am.

Your most important shape is the shape of now.

Being in Delight.

The way of true being.

Get swept away by Life. The Sweetness.

That which we already are.

I invite you to journey and to take it in as an energetic download — to reveal pieces of yourself, to stir, shake, heal or hug you into yourSelf, into Love. A spiritual succulent like a yummy probiotic: a bit of Candy for the soul.

Your being knows how to be.

Trust in your own being to guide you.

Your Aliveness knows its way…

I invite you to journey and to take it in as an energetic download — to reveal pieces of yourself, to stir, shake, heal or hug you into yourSelf, into Love. A spiritual succulent like a yummy probiotic: a bit of Candy for the soul.

About [reverie] on The Embody Podcast: Spiritual Succulents

The sweetness, agony, delight, joy, freshness, and fullness of what is — This is Beauty. Here is my ongoing attempt to embrace the All — all that is — including the depths of the unseen yet known, in a Life of Beauty.

[Reverie] emerges as a creative outlet for pieces of me, experiments, parts of process, artistry, in any form that honors or interacts with Being. Conversations with the pulse of Life itself… with Beauty. They are gifts from Life to me and to you if it is for you to hear.

As a play with the dimensions of Being, I invite you to listen as if you are speaking and all the same, as I am speaking. Without pressure to make sense but to let what wants to flow into any part of your being do so freely — to get LOST.

Enjoy in your own way.

Inner freedom supports freedom for ALL.

In this episode: a Conversation about the Amy Cooper and Christian Cooper video, the way my body expressed reactions and perceptions towards Black people, and an experiential here for you to open your own body-based exploration around people who are different from you.

It is your body that holds reactions and unconscious sentiments towards others that contribute to racism.

No matter who you are, black, brown, white, yellow, and every person in between — going deeper means looking at your body’s reactions. Along with any actions that your heart feels called to, if you want freedom for those you love and care about — for Black people, for all people — hold space for what is held in your own body and digest it.

If you don’t involve your own body in healing racism or in anti-racism, or in supporting BLM or another race movement, it has a risk to be only be performative, not go deep enough, or to perpetuate the underlying dynamics.

This experiential is an invitation to use systemic constellations and embodied witnessing to look at what may be living in your body that contributes (probably unknowingly) to systemic racism.

I invite you to be gentle and honest with yourself and open to what your body’s experience is of the “other” or someone you perceive as different. This is where racism can be healed.

When you heal your body’s experience and the unconscious lived experience, the world around changes.

Build your ability to respond to your own reactions and to respond in the world instead of react — your Response-ability.

This is inner freedom. Inner freedom supports freedom for ALL.

I stand with Black people and see you. I stand with all the people who desire that Black people have the right to live and breathe.

Witnessing the protests from Mexico that are happening as a result of systemic violence on Black folks (re-ignited by George Floyd and many that have died at the hands of the police) has inspired me to talk vulnerably and candidly about some experiences where I noticed my own racism coming to the surface — fears that have been held through my ancestry.

I speak to how I can have the best of intentions, and still find something that its racist — and what I did about it.

Racism is held in the body.

No matter how well intentioned it is to say, “I believe in equality,” — there are likely some unconscious ways that your body experiences something else, likely rooting in trauma — a wound of your own, your ancestry’s, your culture’s, or your past lives/dimensional experiences’.

This is also an invitation, whoever you are and for all that are interested, to have some gentleness in being with whatever you feel — no matter what it is.

That’s the most essential part of healing our systemic race issues — is acknowledging what is there — what you feel and the beliefs and attitudes that reveal through your body.

This is an invitation to look at your own lived wounds and beliefs — the ones you hide from yourself — that give way to a collective experiences of racism.
