Your body tells you when you’ve moved out of harmony…you need only start listening. There is no hurry, however. Take your time. Learn to pause and listen. Find your own natural rhythm. Slow down, breathe, listen, tune yourself back into gaia’s heart.
I just posted something like this the other day. Tara Brach is always so good it made sense to post yet another on the same theme. Remember fear and anxiety are simply clinical terms for manifestations of fear. … [click on title for the rest of the post]
I’ve been studying The Gene Keys for a couple of years.
