The moment I can sense the 'aha' from someone when they see a situation, themselves, or someone else with 'new eyes'... that's a moment I live for. When that person tells me later how that new way of seeing has helped them heal, love, or believe in themselves or someone else in a way they hadn't before... it fuels me to keep going.
It's the essence of what drives me... the idea that through some connection of dots and feelings, our minds and hearts can expand in ways that open up new worlds, and move us away from feeling depleted, small, protective, vindictive, and into new dimensions that make us feel more alive, generous and strong. We've all had those experiences, sometimes without realizing it. It's those new ways of seeing ourselves and others that I believe will break the cycles of transmitting trauma, dysfunction and unfulfilled potential from generation to generation.
A few days ago, I had a vision that sparked a deeper connection for me with the book I am writing: That we are capable of continuously knowing ourselves on deeper and more breath-taking levels. That we haven't even begun to understand how powerful our minds and hearts are. That we, as humans, are only on the precipice of understanding what an incredible species we are - that we can take life to a level we haven't even imagined yet.
And that, incredibly.... a new, higher level might be something we are not expecting. It may be about less. Less stuff. Less noise. Less distraction. It may be about going to back to our mammalian roots first, and honoring what our nervous systems, our hearts, our skin, our organs, our eyes, our muscles, our neurochemicals... how they function at their absolute best. The irony is that although our mammalian roots are more 'primitive', they are at the heart (literally - in terms of the myelinated vagal pathways!) of our most connected, loving, nurturing, and powerful communities and families. If we can honor that more intentionally, we can use our more complex types of intelligence to build a better way of life for all of us, and especially the next generations.
I encourage you to seek out organizations that foster this sense of community, and connection.
That's the vision and energy that fuels me to keep writing, podcasting, to keep dreaming of new ways to share my voice, and building towards a way of living that integrates technology in fewer, but more intentional ways, and into a space of beautiful community and kinship, healing and connection - where I can use my experiences of becoming more aware of how we connect these dots to help others do the same.
With Love from Me to You
