Having the abundance of information ready for consumption in each and every moment of our day, on whichever topic we feel drawn to is a blessing. And a curse.
More often than not we got lost in consuming, consuming, consuming all the books, articles, podcasts, documentaries, driven by this insatiable thirst for knowledge and always on a look for that missing piece that will help us ‘figure it out’ and heal ourselves/ manifest the life we want/ change how we feel etc.
I’ve been there, too, my friends. And let me tell you something: accumulating knowledge and theories may be good in some initial phase of your journey, but it doesn’t really change anything, it doesn’t bring any palpable results and shifts. It is 5% of the thing. Other 95% is how we are going to put it into practice, not once, but repeatedly. Over and over again, until it becomes our second nature.
Now, I know that many of us rush through spiritual and self-help books without doing the exercises and practices that usually come along, thinking that ‘we’re gonna do them sometimes later’, ‘ok, I got the point, I understood how it works’ (but then never doing it and EXPERIENCING how it works) or ‘I don’t need that now, I’ll use it if I find myself in a X situation that requires that practice’.
Intellectual knowing that happens on the mind level is not emotional integration and will not bring energetic shifts that you want into your reality. And, usually, when shit really hit the fan, we cannot remember a thing of all that information and advice we devoured from 100 different spiritual resources.
So, my idea with this ‘Embodied’ section is to put together a toolbox with simple and effective tools that I used (and still use) on my journey and that helped me deal with all kinds of more and less fucked-up stuff. It will be no fluff, straight-forward applicable exercises and practices that you can run to whenever needed and (only!) if they resonate with you - whatever doesn’t ring your bell, just leave it. There are so many tools out there and it is important we find those that feel in alignment with our soul, because otherwise - we will feel resistant to actually putting them into practice!
Theory and intellectual-masturbation are all well and good, but of no purpose if we don’t anchor and embody them in practical ways in order for them to show their true colors and potential.
