The Psychosomatics of Peace

Psychosomatics of Peace - Guided Meditation - The Attitude Revolution

Look. You’re busy.

I get it.

And you’re getting cranky at all those peeps on your news feed bragging about meditation (including this one).

Because sometimes you genuinely don’t have time. Sometimes you wonder if it does anything at all.

So I made something for you.

This isn’t some boring rant about the statistics of how important meditation is. You know all that stuff anyway.

This track is poetry.

Designed to remind you of the magic that is your brain. How incredible your central nervous system is.

And poetry?

It cuts through the bullshit.

It brings you back to center, like a hummingbird to nectar.

And beauty is vital for reconnection.

So whilst the track has no meditones, it gives you that 2 min recharge of ‘ahhhh, that’s better’.

No need to lie down on the couch, close your eyes, sit in lotus, or even put on headphones. Just hit play and peace out.

Available in the shop now!

For the next 24 hours, receive a free copy of Ways to Let Go (another peace poem) when you order Psychosomatics of Peace.

Who Do You Think You Are?!

of-infinite-worth

So you struggle with self worth?

How dare you!

How dare you think that you are anything less than a cataclysmic miracle!

Do you know how long it took you to get here?!

Don’t you know that you are the result of the love and strength and resilience of BILLIONS?!

Do you really think that 2.5 million years of human evolution would breed a mistake? You’re here, so you cannot possibly be flawed.

Your existence PROVES your worth. Tweet: Your existence PROVES your worth. ~ @ituderevolution http://ctt.ec/1sceV+

Look at your hands. There are 27 bones in there alone. 2,500 nerve endings just in the tip of your little finger.

Your heart will beat on average 2.5 billion times in your lifetime.

85 billion neurons generate lightning in your brain.

Still struggling because of pain? Congratulations – you’re human just like the rest of us.

Revel in it. Dance with the heartbreak. Soar on the wings of grief because it means you’re alive.

And if you’re alive?

You are full of infinite potential, unlimited in possibility and unimagined genius.

You were born worthy. So start acting like it.

Hello Wagon, My Old Friend…

How To Hop Back On The Wagon ~ The Attitude Revolution

I’ve come to hop on you again…

Ah the proverbial wagon.

Can’t count how many times I’ve fallen off and gotten back on again.

Exercise programs, diets, self help regimes, New Year’s Resolutions, kicking habits or kicking goals… I go gung-ho and then lose my stride. Distracted and discouraged, at some point, it all feels too hard and I quit.

Even the stuff that makes me feel good – like eating well, doing Pilates and meditating… I LOVE that stuff. But some days it just slips through my fingers and after a while I wonder why I feel like shit and where the hell did that time go?!

And back on the wagon I hop.

Because there are two things certain in this life.

1. You’ll fall off the wagon.

2. You’ll get back on it.

You’ll get triggered; bitch slapped by your Inner Critics; taken over by egoistic defiance; or purely, simply rebel. You’re human!

But then you’ll remember why you want to do what you want to do. And you’ll climb aboard the wagon again.

‘Cause it’s never about staying on the wagon all the time. ~ Tweet: It's never about staying on the wagon all the time.  ~ @ituderevolution http://ctt.ec/k01s3+

It’s about how quickly you can realise you’ve fallen off, how gently you can treat yourself while you’re on the ground, and how gracefully you can hop back on.

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was a commitment to my Core Desired Feelings – Zen, Samadhi, Wildly Sensuous.

And there’s one thing that makes me feel ALL of the things. Meditones.

When I fall off the meditation wagon, I’m reminded again of how clearly my energy is influenced by my meditation practice. It has such a magnificent effect.

“I want things to be easy” – becomes my catch cry in the midst of strife. But as soon as I put on the headphones, ahhhh – there’s the ease. And the extra kicker? The more I put on the headphones, the more the ease is there. That’s resilience, baby!  

At the beginning of the year, it was eeeeasy to meditate. The fresh energy of the New Year was upon me. I had just finished an album’s worth of music for Spectrum and was facilitating my first group of brave-hearted, creative trailblazers through the course. Zero trouble.

But those pesky distractions crept in. Househunting; hormonal rollercoasters; packing, decluttering, moving. Normally those are the times a meditation practice is VITAL to ride out the waves of pain and frustration.

Some days I did. Some days I didn’t. (Fell off).

As the dust began to settle, I realised it wasn’t the dust that was blinding me. It was the fact I was face down in it. (Hello ground).

*facepalm* “I haven’t been meditating every day. Oops” (Gentle. Gentle).

“I’m gonna meditate tonight” (Graceful bound).

*relieved and excited to be back on the wagon* “Gee, the view is great from up here!”

If you’ve fallen off the wagon of any kind recently – I humorously, gently and humbly request you to hop back on. No need for gratuitous explanations, absolutely no self flagellation, no fuss, no muss.

______________________________________

There’s No Such Thing As A Transition

No Such Thing As A Transition ~ The Attitude Revolution

Moving house twice in 3 months has left me feeling like I’m in limbo…

Knowing that in 6 months time, it’s happening again doesn’t really help this feeling.

I catch myself thinking all kinds of postponing thoughts. “There’s no point in….” “I’ll fix that when…” “I’ll just wait until…”

It’s unsettling and very anxiety provoking.

Until I remember that home is me. I AM home. When I drop back into the present moment and stop future tripping the EFF out – all is well.

That’s why there’s no such thing as a transition. I’m not in between houses… in between jobs… in between relationships… I’m here now. This is my life. It’s not on hold for some better future life.

Loving what is now, frees us from expectation and opens up a world of appreciation. ~ click to tweet

Years ago, I blogged about how the transition is the hardest part. But it doesn’t have to be.

You can drop the pressure, judgement and expectation of wanting to be anywhere but here. And when you do – you find yourself.

You can let go of the yearning for something better than now, the wish for something more familiar, more certain, less worrisome. You begin to see that the things you desire – when you just pay attention –  are already here.

Tahleevision: Moving In March

Tahleevision: Moving In March ~ The Attitude Revolution

The Life of a Travelling Musician

Things have been a little quiet on the ol’ bloggy-blog as life behind the scenes has been HEC.TIC.

A few of you may remember the moving house sale I had a few weeks ago. Well the move has finally happened. To say it’s been challenging would be an understatement. I’d love to say I handled it all with grace and aplomb, but I’m pretty sure my relatives would laugh out loud if I described myself in that way.

Impatience, frustration and plain ol’ depletion reared their ugly heads. I dropped the ball on my meditation practices quite a few times. I even caught sight of the Inner Critics more than I would have liked.

And that’s ok.

Emotions can be full on but we need the whole spectrum of them to really live life to the full. Emotions that are repressed always come out in other, unhealthier ways.

I’ve been triggered many times over the last few weeks, and as much as possible I try to let the emotions ricochet through me and then centre back in. I’m a work in progress.

Speaking of the emotional spectrum – Spectrum (the anti-work course) will be starting up again in a few weeks. To claim dibs on info as soon as it’s released – head over to the Spectrum page to register your interest on the mailing list.

And without further ado – here are the things that have floated my boat in between packing boxes…

  • Guess which famous designer shaved her head to protest inaction on climate change?
  • Need an answer to one of life’s big questions? Here’s a flowchart to help you find your answer :)

 

So simple, yet so clever. Birds on the Wires from Jarbas Agnelli

 

This absolutely cracked me up!

 

Stunning. Just stunning.
