Is disconnecting from everything really a good thing? I think not! Hear me out here. For the last several summers I have designed my online coaching business to slow down so I could travel with my family and create great memories. My usual 25-30 hours a week I purposely slow to 2-3 hours a day, 4 days a week. I coach in the morning from wherever I am (this summer it is six weeks in the North Western United States and British Columbia, Canada).
It is a time to soak up all those things that we miss while living full-time in our Mexican Paradise. Like moderate weather, virtual reality gaming, we have been to professional sporting events, hiking, boating on lakes, giant science centers, urban landmarks indulging enjoying some of our favorite restaurant’s and spirits. Lots of rest and down time as well. This list is long and impressive. So why am I fighting anxiety? What I am noticing is, I am struggling to feel grounded and good. I have all this amazing stuff around me, by my creation and choice, I am having a great time with family and friends, so what is the deal? AHA, it is what I haven’t been doing. I have not been maintaining the amazing stuff that is within me. I have disconnected a bit too much from source. From my internal, spiritual daily work. This morning after a very big day of emotional and even physical discomfort yesterday, I started to listen. I really didn’t have a choice. I got THAT uncomfortable, hips hurting, acid reflux, reacting rather than responding to an unexpected, disappointing and stressful situation. It was Yuckville for sure. I jumped in the hot tub this morning and asked the question “what is this? What is this yuck I am feeling?” And right away, loud and clear I got my answer “You have disconnected from source” (we all know, one is always connected) However, I know what this answer meant.
I was not attending to my self care or even sort of maintaining my internal work. My conscience gratitude’s, my listening to great thought leaders, reading the things that constantly remind me of all that I am, all that I have and all that I am capable of. I had stopped my powerful, important, morning practice. I was taking a break from the work. BAD IDEA… On top of all that, as I mentioned earlier, I was indulging in restaurant’s and spirits. Prosecco in excess of course causes the acid reflux. Just a yummy bagel roll at the famous German Restaurant, or the breading on fresh fried West Coast oysters for the gluten sensitive will ruin a day (or week). For us? it is like just a little bit of poison. I know this! But yet, I just turned some things that I know are in my best interest, practices that keep me in an incredible vibration off.
So, is completely disconnecting a good thing? I THINK NOT! Just writing this has bumped my frequency so much, things that were worrying me yesterday have easily been resolved in my head. (That is after all where we do the most damage and the most work) I am still on holiday and a matter of fact I have been writing this going between the steam room, jacuzzi, cold shower and dry sauna (I am in a hotel in Vancouver, BC) Today is a beautiful day, I am so full of gratitude, I have put the stress and BS into perspective. I noticed, I asked, I listened and I got back into a great frequency. All good!
