I don’t know about you, but the current crisis has me feeling like I have cobwebs in my brain. Can you relate to that brain-fog experience?
You can’t clear away what you don’t seeI’m reminded of the story I tell about cobwebs in my mother’s house. She was always a meticulous housekeeper – no dust or spiders allowed! Unfortunately, as she got older her vision became impaired by an undiagnosed brain tumor. One day I saw the tell-tale silken threads of a cobweb in the window. Horrors of horrors. She would have been mortified had she known.
Clearing away the cobwebs in my headRecognizing “cobwebs” in my head, I decided to join some friends in a “fun” 10-day Challenge. To try clearing the brain fog, I’ve committed to taking a daily walk, meditating before going to sleep, and not drink alcohol or coffee. For.10.whole.days. On Friday morning I awoke feeling foggy, groggy, and leaden-headed. So… I completed 5 minutes of the Revised Cleansing breath (you know it by now) …
Breathe in through your nose – feel the temperature of the air
Breathe out through your nose – feel the temperature of the air
(Use an awakening essential oil like eucalyptus, lavender, or lemon)Ugh! I STILL felt foggy. But I did not cheat and make a cup of coffee. Instead, I listened to this 4-minute grounding and centering process called “Letting Go of the Getting Here”. (Special thanks to Rev. Sahnnon O’Hurley for permission to use the title) Finally! Like cleaning the cobweb from my mother’s window, this exercise cleared the cobwebs from my brain. Now it’s your turn. Click here to listen: What did you experience after listening? I’m curious about your experience. Hit reply and let me know. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being very foggy and 1 being crystal clear:
- What number were you before you listened?
- What number were you 4 + minutes later after listening?
