A Time for Rewiring Body, Heart and Mind
A message from Rhonda Uretzky, Author and Teacher
We all feel influenced by the comments and criticisms of other people in the world around us. In person, on social media, in our work and in our personal lives.
It is radical to listen to your own inner guidance. It is radical to believe that you can source your own wisdom. It is radical to honor your inner genius.
Yet radical is what we need right now.
We are on the cusp of redefining ourselves: our health, work, politics, social culture and relationships. It began when Covid-19 reshuffled everything on our dance cards, suddenly giving us pause to reflect on our lives – our social constructs, our mental and physical health, our economy, our leadership, and on where we want to go from here.
There is no going back to the way things were. There is, however, an opening; an opportunity to recreate the way we want to live, individually and collectively.
We have two aspects of ourselves: one is the part that is always doing, BECOMING, navigating daily choices. This part we know well; it’s how we live in the world. Our minds, our moods, our bodies, our backgrounds – these all influence what we do.
The other aspect is our Inner BEING: an innate sense of knowing, a stable core of wisdom that remains constant despite changing conditions. We often glimpse this sporadically, through a connection to art, hearing music, writing, creating something, pausing from our daily routine.
If we can bridge these seemingly separate aspects of ourselves and link inner wisdom with action, we can contribute to the world of ‘doing’ in rhythm with our own need for Being who we truly are in body, mind and heart.
We could sidestep overwhelm, distress and despair if we could be mindful of the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that generated unconscious patterns keeping us in a loop of fear, self doubt and self-limiting behaviors.
We might create a life where physical health and mental clarity are part of our daily schedule, integrating skillful self-care to renew our energy and entusiasm.
It’s been my experience that pausing – to breathe, stretch, engage in rich discussion, reflective thinking and community support – can develop within us a kind of Radical Resilience to stand and embrace possibilities amidst the challenges of an uncertain future. Yoga, mindfulness and Blissciplines – unique processes to dissolve habitual patterns and create fresh insights for managing daily challenges in new ways – can re-engage you in your work, your surroundings, and all your relationships.
Radical resilience is a shift from struggle to ease, from worry to calm, from chaotic thinking to certainty of action; and in that shift there lies an experience of life filled with wonder, wherever you look.
It’s time. Welcome to Blissful Warrior Radical Resilience.
