It’s too easy to be swept into the busyness of technology and to get caught up being all things to everybody, that we can forgot who we are, why we’re here and what our heart yearns for.
The truth is if you don’t stop and pause, life will do it for you.
Life likes to give us warning signs when we’re not on track. Initially the signs are subtle – it could be a gut feeling or sometimes things just don’t turn out the way we want them to. Other times, it feels like we are riding a wave of uncertainty, numbness and anxiety that hits us in the stomach so hard it hurts.
I call these moments enforced pauses.
They feel deeply painful and I know because I’ve had quite a few in my life. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
The act of slowing down and reconnecting to what our heart wants is a transforming experience – if we have the courage to stop, breathe and reflect inwards.
My retreats aren’t about finding quick answers, but they are about slowing down enough so you can start asking the right questions.
The answers are usually simple. It’s the questions that are hard to hear.
Listen to the wind, it talks
Listen to the silence, it speaks
Listen to your heart, it knows
