Here Comes the Sun

Mindfulness & Self-Compassion

Good morning beautiful people,

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

A few weeks ago, I talked about being in the grey zone, which can be interpreted as if there is something cooking within, about to be alchemised into something worth being patient for.

Often, the grey zone is about letting go of thought patterns that are no longer aligned with what’s about to emerge, keeping in mind that everything does change constantly, and that eventually, even the grey will change colour too.

So why do we hold on to the old so dearly and feel uncomfortable being with what’s about to emerge?

Why do we not listen to the wisdom within, and instead give away our knowing to others?

On this note, I would like to invite you to uncross your legs, feel your feet on the ground, and take a deep inhale, feeling the air moving through your nostrils. As you breath out, feel your sit bones sinking into the chair you might be sitting on, and imagine the little girl or boy within you, needing an strong deep hug.

Yes, being human is complex, we will navigate from white, to grey, to black and vice versa, often giving away our power to others, instead of being patient with what’s about to emerge and staying in that grey zone.

But what if there were golden nuggets to be picked up from every zone even the least colourful ones?

This is my wish for us all today, that we feel our feet on the ground, take that deep inhale and welcome what is.

May we be safe,
May we be healthy,
May we be patient

Dont hesitate to message me if you have any questions,

With love and deep respect

Vanessa
