(A little reminder from the archives today.)
Asking myself what I need and then creating enough space to listen to the answer is one of the practices I return to almost daily.
Sometimes this space is a few seconds, other times a minute or two.
I don't obsess about the answer or "if it's right." I just listen and learn. So often the answer is about a basic need of rest, connection, nourishment. And using this practice has become a simple daily handhold.
Try it today.
Close your eyes.
Take a deep breath.
And ask yourself: What do you need in this moment?
And then take five more deep breaths and really listen to your answer.
(You might even want to leave your answer in the comments so that you can really claim this truth today.
