Using Practices to Survive

I recently met with a client who is working her ass off to stay alive. What does the mean? It means she is using all the practices that she knows of, not to thrive, but to keep herself from killing herself.

These are the clients that remind me where i've been. I remember. And I remember the journey of re-membering.

While with her I recalled a time from my darkest days when I did a very simple gratitude practice. It wasn't a rainbows and unicorn gratitude practice like, "be grateful for everything you have!" and then you list a bunch of stuff/things.


Releasing Strategies, Finding Life

’m driving, and all of a sudden it goes dark, and the road becomes enclosed. I know how to work the breaks, the gas, and the steering wheel, but everything is different so I’m completely disoriented. I‘m not sure what **to do**.  I no longer see ahead of me, and I can’t get back to where I was. I’m just here… in the dark, where almost nothing is familiar. All the previous tactics I’ve used to drive effectively are suddenly out of context. It’s scary. I don’t know what to do or where I’m going, and yet I must keep driving.
