Allow: A poem by Danna Faulds
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
