Good Morning! Stacie - Thank you for a beautiful contemplation this morning capturing BOTH; the things that feel out of reach and the things right in front of me. The Livestream has been uploaded in Alive Practices/Daily Livestream and is called 3-25 AM One - Two Contemplation. As Stacie mentioned we are missing our circles and the one on one connection with people in person. We would love to continue to connect with you guys and have been contemplating several ways ourselves to keep that connection going. Sharing is a big part of how we build a safe container to be who we are and remove our masks. If you are willing we would like to keep the conversation going, it gives ideas for others and builds trust in ourselves. We would love to hear what came up for you in the questions and contemplation below in the comments and also ask any questions as needed.

Oceans of Love,
Stacy and Stacie

Examples that came up for me:
1. Out of Control: Trump
Can Control:
1. Choosing self quarentine
2. Sharing facts when I can
2. Missing about my normal life: Freedom to be mobile in my community, outside of my community.
Can Control:
1. Can drive to get outside.
2. Enhance my home environment
to make it feel safe and comfortable.

3. One thing someone else needs: New puppy needs full time attention, adaptation throughout our home.
Can Control:
1. Take time to meditate
2. Take time to rest.

Interestingly, when I first listened to this, I came up with things easily and thought they would be easy to remember for when I had time to record them. Now that I am finding the time to sit down and write without interruption, I could come up with dozens of things for each category. They will be running through my mind throughout the day for sure!
Blessings to all!

One thing that feels out of control is the world. I know in my heart that I can't control all the big things, but my brain will spin out and attempt to do just that. So I focus on the tiniest of things because those I can control for the most part. I can control my breathing and I can control how much information I am taking in via news and social media. Those tiny things are bringing the most peace now.
one thing I am missing is the illusion of certainty or safety. I always knew it was an illusion that I used to feel safer in this world. Even though I miss it, in a way I am grateful (in good moments) because now I appreciate even more the love I have for my family and friends. I am thankful to have more time with my husband and 2 kids that are still at home. Old normal did not have as much time for quiet moments together and I am soaking each moment up now that we have them in this new normal.
One thing I am doing today is to show up as authentically as I can for my family, so they know it's ok to show up authentically, too. I love that Stacie said that we can have good and bad at the same time. This new normal allows even more time to see this is true. Two needs I have is to take good care of my body and to listen to what it needs.
I am so thankful for all of you and especially to Stacy and Stacie for bringing us together. Love to you all. 💕

@stacyworley I told you this the other day. Sometimes I take you for granted. You’re always so ready to help me thru anything that I forget that you have your own feelings and emotions. Thank you for your honesty and allowing us all to see that you are just like us, human with real emotions, grief, fears, and frailty. 💚

First I’d like to say thank you to both of you, who even when you’re in the midst of your own hurricanes, are still taking care of us. That fact is not lost on me & I’m so grateful for you both!

Second this meditation and exercise really connected me to my heart and brought forward a lot of emotion. The grief of loss is very real. It almost feels like someone I know and love has died.

Examples that came up for me:
1. My sleep patterns feel out of control for right now. Rarely is sleep an issue for me, but now it’s every night.
2. A. I can control what I put into my body... food, news, social media, other outside influences. B. I can control my nighttime routine to prepare me for sleep and to give me the best chance to get a good night’s sleep.

1. One normal thing that I am missing is my yoga studio. It’s the space that, putting my heart forward, I created for myself to express my own dharma or truth. It was a work in progress for me, growing a I grow. Now I feel like that’s all on hold.
2. A. I appreciate that I was able to find an outdoor location to offer yoga classes. While it’s not my studio, it does allow for some personal connection with my yoga people. B. I appreciate that I have more time at home to spend with my family and to commit to some other things that I enjoy like gardening.

1. One thing that I’m doing today to tend to someone else’s need is I’m cooking a healthy dinner for my family.
2. A. This is one of the things that I need as well so by putting thought into the process, it allows me to feel good about providing for them but also helps me feel better both physically and emotionally. B. This is where I got lost in grief. I truly miss human connection. I miss the connection with my family. I miss the connection with my friends. I miss sharing a smile with a stranger at the grocery store. Now, when I do go out, people are so worried that no ones makes eye contact. No one makes that brief energetic connection with each other anymore. This is what I want to tend to today. I want to give my family a big hug. I want to give my friends a big hug. I want to be able to walk into a store without being afraid that some invisible lung eater will leach onto me infecting me and then the people I love. I want to tend this need for connection but can’t. I know this will end at some point but for now it seems eternal. I spent much of my life blocking energy from others trying to stay safe. It’s not a lifestyle that I enjoy revisiting.

Your messages are Golden. I cannot be available for the entirety of a Livestream, but try to catch up to the recorded versions. Paw patrol determines a lot of my availability these days♥️

I wish the world would take time to listen to you, it would gain amazing resources and understanding.

If you ever need to take a break from daily live-streaming, your archives are so rich with guidance, I would still feel supported and resourced.

Alive Therapies is a Blessing in my life!

Examples in my life:

1. In my normal life I miss traveling to see my friend and business partner.
2. We connect for coffee in the morning daily and we continue to create together through facilitating the daily live-streams.

1. My finances feel out of control.
2. Reviewing my accounts, actual dollars I have, and contacting companies for any assistance they can provide at this time.
