The Laments of a Highly Sensitive Person

Happy Sunday morning my doves, A part of me feels like I want to apologize for my post on Thursday. I know that is also a silly thing to do but work with me. That was the type of thing I would usually write in my personal journal. That day, a bit of a straw broke. I was exhausted from shoveling stress onto myself – totally self perpetuated, yet seemingly impossible to stop.  This exhaustion though…

Week In Review: Baking, Writing, Meditating and Pushing Through

Last week was bloody hard.  Everything right now feels pretty hard. I finally beat down my anxiety which took a lot of work, and then took a lot of tears and discomfort and will power to not revert back to the numbing-ness of anxiety when I let myself feel what was underneath it all. Sigh. Life is just hard you guys.  But I’m not alone in this. I know we all share it. Feelings are…

Week In Review: A Week of Rehearsal, Quiche and Calming

Happy Monday, friends! No deep, soul searching talk today. Just a good ol’ list-lovers-link-up with Meg.  Last week was a big rehearsal week as I open my show this coming Wednesday. The run is completely sold out, and our dress rehearsal went well… so fairy power is in full gear.  Since this was a week of five 10 hour rehearsal days, this also meant a lot of leftovers, a lot of…

Anxiety. Could It Really Be Mind Over Matter?

On Monday I mentioned how last week I was really struggling with anxiety. This perpetual, chronic sense of body tightness and  chest discomfort just wouldn’t go away, no matter how much I tried to stretch or focus on my breathing.  When I have a lot of anxious thoughts, I feel almost as if I’ve pulled muscles in my chest. And my solar plexus turns to rock. My mind was steadily racing to…

Week In Review: Pushing Through Lethargy

Last week wasn’t that fun guys.  I’m just feeling so. bloody. tired. Physically, like crud. My body doesn’t want to move. All week I felt heavy and could barely keep my eyes open – even at work standing up. And with that, my mood has been pretty low. Motivation and care is nearly zilch. I don’t know if it was more the weather (rainy and cloudy all week), &nbsp…

Breathe and Chakra Release PART FIVE: The Heart Chakra

It’s been a while since I’ve added to my Breathe and Chakra Release Series. I by no means forgot about the last of what I wanted to share with you, and am excited as ever to share what I have for you today. I did, however, make a little fib.  I initially said this would be a five part series, but I cannot simply end it with today’s post. I will be…

Breathe and Chakra Release Part THREE: The Root Chakra

Today I am sharing my experience with the Root Chakra and offering some simple breathing exercises to help gain a sense of security, awareness and grounding. Whether or not you “believe” in the chakra system does not matter.  It can be fascinating to explore the relationship between the mind and physical body. If needing an introduction or review to this series, please see Part 1 and Part 2. Muladhara The Root Chakra, also known as Muladhara…

Breathe and Chakra Release Part TWO: Exhale, Jaw Tension and Release

For an introduction and explanation of this series, see Part one: Introduction. The exercises I will be sharing with you over the next month will focus on 3 areas of the body: 3 areas that correlate with 3 of the 7 Chakras. In East Indian philosophy, the chakras are known as the 7 centers in our bodies to which energy flows through.  It is believed that each of these chakras – like valves – can become…
