At least, that is what my wise-woman self tells me.
Trust the process.
The process is not linear.
The process will not be understood by your monkey mind (which undoubtedly will want to dictate the process and will fail miserably).
The process may be met with all your defenses. The sudden need to sleep. The sudden need to hide into a book. The sudden need to shove mouthfuls of popcorn into your mouth while reading said book.
If your body says rest, rest. If you body says dig in, dig in. If your body says, “you are putting up your defenses” then stay curious.
Allow your partner to call you out (they always will). Allow your dreams to speak to you (make sure you’re listening).
Move. Shake. Walk. Dance. Tickle. Flail. Kick. Conga. [really wise self? Conga?]
Walk, relax, meditate in savasana.
Self-care, self-care, self-care. And then some more.
The sun will rise again. It didn’t disappear, it was just out of view. Relax into the orbit of your life.
