And so, I invite you to catch your breath. There’s been so much trauma around us that we may have forgotten what it is like to fully push all the air out of our lungs with every exhale, lest we dare forebode joy, as Brené Brown would say. Don’t breathe with anticipation. Just breathe.
Remember a time in your life when you breathed a sigh of relief, and imagine that kind of relief already here, and for the duration. Cosmic trends will be much lighter entering 2021. It may feel a bit disorienting at first, and, it is totally OK to breathe again.
Our collective breath and sighs of relief mark the beginning of a healing journey. A longtime client-friend sent me a message the other day saying that, “America needs to do some serious shadow work.” She was right, and the best way to begin healing is to start with our breath.
I personally do not believe that all we have endured – this year in particular – was in vain or for naught. We’ve been in a cycle of unlearning and relearning since we opened the year, and this process will continue; an unraveling continues regardless of the coronavirus or who’s president.
As I always say to my clients, life is a series of choices. We can make one choice or another, and neither choice is good or bad – it’s just a choice.
So please, for your sake and for my sake, for George Floyd and all the people we’ve lost this year, choose your breath. Breathe new life into your body. Push all the air out of your lungs. Inhale. Exhale. Breathe.
