Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
I got stuck in a snowbank today.
In my driveway.
I had just popped into the house for a second to grab my phone charger; I was to be off teaching a class at noon. And I was stuck. So stuck that I wasn't going to make it to class.
I texted potential substitutes.
I shoveled under my wheels.
I called my husband.
I cursed the snow, my tires, my slippery driveway, and all of the motorists who didn't stop (no one stopped).
I was so. freakin'. mad.
And then I started to cry. So I left my car in the driveway and came inside. There, on my counter, were my "Shift Anger" Cards.
The Anger Deck, as I affectionately call it, is a 15 card deck that includes movement, meditation, and mantras for working with Anger.
So I did this quick flow (about six times...)
And after, I realized what my anger was really telling me.
I was embarrassed, not being able to shovel myself out.
I felt like I can't do anything right. Like I'm worthless.
I had to move my body and drop out of my thinking to get to that realization. And then? Then I worked on self-love and worthiness (next blog post!).
You gotta feel it to heal it.
