  • Yes how simple and yet profound. I try saying “oh that is interesting…”. Thank you Anjelika for the reminder of this simple helpful tip. You asked why something so simple is Sometimes so hard? I think just that we forget The tip , and Then we forget that It takes regular practice to get real good at anything. And regular practice takes a commitment, and a commitment takes self discipline. And self discipline hinges on self Love and compassion. Thanks for the reminder Anjelika. ❤️

  • Hi Anjelika. I feel a sense of suspense…, a breath in, and a holding as I await to see if it is safe to relax more… I know the feeling well…. walking on egg shells a bit…, maybe I did something wrong conjures up… I breath in, and now I breath out after checking in … after checking in For inquiry i see I have fine nothing wrong, and I am safe. I am safe and I am strong. I can inquire. I love your writing Angelika. It is so creative and alive. I am blessed to be here with you for sure…! Thanks for sharing. ❤️

        Hi Muffy, thanks for sharing. This is kind of hard bringing this up, I fear people won’t like me, and I will be called “ Miss Goody Two Shoes” as I was called growing up…! I feel anxiety all over, I stop and breath… I come to my truth, which is it is upsetting to me that people will agree to something, and then not honor their commitment. I just really value keeping my word. I remember Bruce saying in I think the second class, something like, that he doesn’t always feel like writing here everyday either. It crossed my mind that maybe he then relinquished his request of writing every day…? Maybe it was interpreted that way…? I don’t always feel like it either, but I see the value in the discipline of the practice, and having done so, I notice the benefits, which has then reinforced my desire to write everyday regardless if anyone else does. So I am good with that. I also partly have wanted to advocate for this to help the larger picture of supportIng Bruce’s request and strengthening our heart fluency community. I feel complete with voicing this, and I feel I can now move past this. Thank you again Muffy for your feedback! ❤️

                Hi Mitzie. This is an interesting time of reflection in our lives and in the world. I am touched by your experience. It seems you were awakened to something in you ready to come out, and be released. That is I think is beautiful that you are noticing and allowing this to come to your attention. Although sad, I was touched by how you called on your stronger healthy caring nurturing part of your adult self to hold you then. I am sitting with this now, breathing, in and out, at first I feel Contraction in my throat and chest area… I continue to breath… I allow myself to be held. I feel an immediate relaxation release of the tension in my throat and chest. I feel a softening into my heart space. For me what I get is the message that this was not mine, it was put on me by another, and was not then able to stand up for myself. I am able now. Completely able. I am grateful for this reminder. Thank you. ❤️

                  As I sit with your post, I think of all the times I have reacted rather than pausing, and all the times I actually did pause and i still didn’t quite get it right…
                  But as I reflect on this, I realize that I am not also responsible for the other persons reaction….
                  I breath into this, and what comes to mind is there us another breath, a second chance, or respite in time left to settle…. I feel a sense of expansion in the Huns ness of this…. after all, who’s perfect? Who isn’t human…? I find comfort in this. There us always a second breath. We can make amends. Thank you. ❤️

                • Hi Angelika. And Verenice! Well the snake would have had me on edge…, so good for you in experiencing its beauty in calm. I like your experience Verenice with the beetle…. it seems always good advice to stop and pause…. I breath into this, and visualize all the natural wonders and beauty out there fir us to behold…., what a rich luscious experience… especially when stopping to pause. Thank you both.❤️
