Allow: A poem by Danna Faulds

Posted by melissadivaris in Anger, Anxiety, Fear and Courage, Inner Reflection, Mindfullness, Resilience 26 Nov 2011

In my psychotherapy practice, I encourage my clients to bring more awareness and mindfulness into their daily lives.

We can so oftentimes feel rushed, scattered and onto the next thing, that we rarely enjoy what this moment has to offer. In being present, it allows us to calm down, lose some of the anxiety, and fully take in what is happening around us.

Conversations start to be more fulfilling, our lives feel less rushed, and our nervous system settles. The art of mindfulness is a practice-one that has to be remembered throughout the day. The more we practice, the easier it becomes.

Allow-by Danna Faulds

There is no controlling life.

Try corralling a lightening bolt,

containing a tornado. Dam a stream, and it will create a new

channel. Resist, and the tide will sweep you off your feet.

Allow, and grace will carry

you to higher ground. The only

safety lies in letting is all in-

the wild with the weak; fear,

fantasies, failures and success.

when loss rips off the doors of

the heart, or sadness veils your

vision with despair, practice

becomes simply bearing the truth.

In the choice to let go of your

known way of being, the whole

world is revealed to your new eyes
