This past week has been the most physically and emotionally draining week I’ve possibly ever had. On Thursday it all became too much and I closed the shutters on the window, sat on the floor of my office and just cried and cried. I think I cried for about 20 minutes uninterrupted. It ended up being somewhat cathartic as I ended up walking barefoot in the park and chanting the Adi Shakti mantra for 20 minutes. I grounded and connected to the Divine Feminine in a B I G way.
So over the last three days I have been getting back to my spiritual roots. I’ve stripped away the labels, the “bells and whistles” and just gotten back to the bare basics. It’s been very profound and has strengthened my resolve to follow the Noble Eightfold Path and keep mindfulness at the forefront of my day. We’ll see how we go.
