Living as your wise and wild self may just be the answer to a more authentic, connected and fulfilling life. (Listen to part 1 of the series here.)
If you want to uncouple from feeling disconnected, overwhelmed and caught in the cycle of self-sacrifice it is time to start doing things differently.
We need to be the changemakers – and the change starts on the inside.
Whether it’s taking charge of our own narratives or breaking away from societal norms, it’s a call to rewrite the rule book, redefine our values, and envision success, love, and fulfilment on our terms.
Living in a way that makes us feel more resourced and nourished has to be a non-negotiable in today’s world.
Living as Your Wild and Wise Self
In this episode, I offer more practices to dive into the untamed realms of your wise and wild self for a deeply fulfilling and satisfying life.
- The role of embodiment practices in releasing tension, increasing capacity, and navigating challenges with resilience.
- The impact of modern life on keeping our nervous system in survival mode
- The importance of dispersing energy throughout the body to experience background pleasure and a more balanced, fulfilling life.
- Attending to different ways of being in areas like well-being, relationships, sacred work, prosperity, and creativity.
Unlock the secrets of living boldly as your wise and wild self
Thriving requires a balance between ancient wisdom practices and somatic experiences, both interwoven into our exploration of living and leading from our wise selves.
Principle Five: There is nothing about you that needs fixing
Let go of the notion that there is something wrong with you. By coming into the right relationship with yourself (principle #1) it helps you to disconnect your worth from external achievements. It helps you discover your inherent value. The pressure is perfection is a killer. No matter how hard we try, through the lens of perfectionism, nothing is ever good enough.
Principle Six: Pleasure as Birthright
Our nervous system has a simple job: help us survive and thrive. Nowadays, though, it’s stuck in survival mode due to modern stressors like deadlines and bills and the world around us that is burning. Living in our heads makes us ignore the quieter signals from our bodies. Embodiment practices break this pattern, spreading energy throughout our bodies and helping us feel subtle, ongoing pleasure.
Principle Seven: Devotion as a Pathway
A new way of being asks for devotion. We need to attend to moving through the world differently, because clearly our old ways have stopped serving us. The need to cultivate practices that allow us to come back to our bodies, to ourselves and to our truth has never been more necessary than now. Devotion means adopting a new approach to navigating life, and it opens the door to the unfolding mystery and wisdom of the Divine.
