Are we overriding our body’s natural pace in order to meet external conditions or expectations? For example, when we’re having a difficult conversation we may need time to let the energy get assimilated, but may feel the other person’s urgency in wanting to finish the discussion right then and there.
Often when people close to us get triggered they try to cord us as a way to keep us in the same place. Cleansing our space and releasing cords will allow us to honor our pace and theirs. There is nothing wrong with allowing our nervous system to adjust at a pace that feels right for us. Understanding that taking a pause is not about avoiding accountability, but honoring space for our mind and body to process the information.
What is a pause agreement and how can we apply this in a way that feels comfortable for everyone involved? Sabriya Simon is a Creator & Curator of healing spaces, a writer and spiritual herbalism apprentice. She will be joining us in our 2.0 class to further discuss honoring our pace as well as others. What comes up for us when we’re asked to pause during a difficult conversation? Are there feelings of abandonment or avoidance, and how can we distinguish the two?
