Lindsay LalBeing overwhelmed & anxious is a warning sign that we have split from our natural way of being. We are not comfortable within our own skin & there is a reason for it.
Living in concrete jungles, abiding by manmade agendas of how life “should” be, surrounded with manufactured things designed to create a more “perfect” life & manipulated to the point that we are robotic, mechanized to all march through life exactly the same way, has complicated our minds. We are confused because we have forgotten where we come from!
When was the last time you spent time totally immersed in nature? Just scrutinizing the intricate details of a leaf or listening to the whimsical sound of water? Sitting at a park, climbing a mountain, putting your toes in the sea or just looking into the sky at the magnificence of the horizon.
Have you ever had a moment where your breath has been taken away by the beauty of something you witnessed in nature? A magnificent sunset, the stars, a rainbow or the sea in perfect rhythm?
Did you think “if only the waves were coming to shore faster or the sunset had a brighter hue of magenta then this would be perfect!” No. Because nature is perfect just the way it is, without any need to manipulate it in any way, and so are we.
Human beings are not meant to be doing so much. We are animals, mammals in fact, who’s natural way is being threatened on a daily basis & our reptilian brain has been activated as a means of survival. This contributes to the feelings of anxiety because we are constantly trying to get away from things that don’t feel right to us. We have lost touch with the part of us that is authentic & aligned, & something must change.
If you or your child are one of the highly sensitive ones who absorb all this chaos & responds accordingly, (& totally naturally by the way) I want to offer you this, there is nothing wrong with YOU! This way of living is NOT normal!
It is the few brave ones saying “Hey, this doesn’t feel right to me” that society tells are “wrong”. We need to learn from the ones who are guiding us, instead of trying to fix them. They’re not broken, they are attuned to their feelings in a way that many of us have abandoned & they’re courageous enough to share what is going on inside of them.
If you want to feel more inner peace, take a few minutes every day to just “be” in nature & realign with your natural way of being.
