Welcome to episode 8 of Roll With Peace, In Mind. In this episode, I riff on CHANGE! Makes You Wanna Holla! How To Navigate Through Change With More Grace. Say what???
The state of Change is not a place we like to end up in. It can feel like we drove off the road, lost our way or fell asleep at the wheel. And transitions can feel the worst especially if there is some type of loss involved–loss of a parent or life partner, relationship or friend, a job, a career or a way of being–there can be gaps of a clear direction and what felt normal becomes anything but. We often ask ourselves who are we without _______ because at times, what is lost is how we defined ourselves. And depending on how extreme the Change is, we get scared, freak out or sit in a depressed stupor. Or all the above. I remember when I was in what felt like a horrendous transition during a shift away from the showbiz industry–I was a basket case and felt so lost–what was my life without being an entertainer? What the heck was I going to do with myself next? That was the only passion I had (so I thought). And who was I really??? Who was I without being on stage?????? (Happily I found answers, LOTS of them! But that’s for another episode!!)
In “The Talk” segment, I muse on how uncomfortable and off-setting Change is and give you some tips and tools to navigate it with more Grace. Hint: it begins with Mindfulness.
in the second segment I take you through a brief sample of my StressBusters Guided Meditation (of which I am the creator and practitioner) to help you Center, Ground and Connect. It’s kinda like a cellphone to your Inner Self, your inner Guidance. In this guided meditation you have an opportunity to meditate on the tips I share with you that helped and continue to help me get through Change when it comes a’knockin’
The sound healing music you hear for my StressBusters Guided Meditation is of my creation and the tracks in this episode are available separately for purchase at Jacquie Bird, Spiritual Wellness for direct and easy access for listening.
