Deep peace of the quiet earth to you. 

A change in perspective.

August 16, 2016


Maybe it's the yogi in me, or maybe it's the literalist. (Okay. I think we all know there's no literalist in here--hyperbolist, maybe. Okay. Definitely...). But I think a literal (in this case) change in perspective can only improve any situation in which you might be (literally or figuratively) stuck. 


Physically, getting into some kind of inversion (even if it's just a three minute legs-up-a-wall pose while lying in bed) puts your head below your heart. You know--where your head *should* be. 


Physiologically, inversions switch things up, circulation-wise, nervous-system-wise, and give your organs a little (much-needed) decompression. 


And in your brain part? Well, you kind of stop thinking about the situation of the moment because you're in a totally new arrangement of limbs and space, and that necessitates new thought patterns.


Aha! New thought patterns! Chances are, when you right yourself (literally--or, well, maybe not), something will have shifted. Something small, something vital. And, no. You don't have to put a label on it. Just follow it. Your heart doesn't speak in words, not really. But it has an unmistakable melody you can't help but follow.
