Time for a Paradigm Shift
I am on the edge teetering between two paradigms right now: my former paradigm of stress/struggle/grinding/pushing/I come last/worry about future/fret about the past/make shit happen and the one I’m moving towards of ease/flow/trust/I come first/allow my experience to unfold. Through consistent attention it’s becoming increasingly natural to orient myself toward the latter and away from the former. I can even laugh at myself about it.
Let’s just get this out of the way so you know what you are dealing with here: I am a superhero. No I don’t jump tall buildings in a single bound or burn holes in walls with my heat vision (but I do have a certain look when angry that I’ve been told burns on contact). One of my superpowers is the incredibly high level I can perform at when needed. The trouble is that level of energy expenditure is meant for sprints of time… not marathons. I burned myself out with a marathon that started in 2012 and lasted until the summer of 2016 when I went on medical leave from my job because I could no longer function. What followed was a harsh couple of years where I broke down completely and rebuilt myself from the cellular level. Think about the way a butterfly comes to be: one form enters the chrysalis, breaks down to goo, and emerges in a whole new form. That’s what I did; but that is not what I want to write about now. I’m more interested in exploring how I am going to come through the next few months without breaking down again.
In this video, I share how my practice of checking in with my body is going to help me shift away from the stressful paradigm and routine, and into one with more ease and flow.
