Becoming the witness…

Last week, I wrote about how I was a witness of my voice in my head in action

That voice in my head is always in action but more and more I become the observer of that voice. Listening to all the stories and by being in the Seat of the Soul instead of listening to that voice I can laugh about the silliness of my voice.

I can still remember and feel what it’s like to believe that voice, to be that voice. Now I can observe that voice and the effects of me believing that voice in my body.

The more I am the witness, the more I make myself comfortable in the Seat of the Soul, the more I can laugh about the absurdness of my voice in my head.

How your thoughts are just like nettle….

A long, long time ago there was a family. This family lost their mom and wife. The children,1 sister and 7 brothers welcomed their stepmother. But their stepmother was jealous of their fortune and abundance and put a spell on them. The children were sent from home and the boys all turned into swans.

The girl learned from an old wise woman that the only way to free her brothers was to make shirts for them from nettle all the while keeping silent.

So she did. She wasn’t allowed to wear gloves and the nettle burned her skin. But she kept going. This was in a day where women were seen as witches when being different. And the village became suspicious of this young woman plucking nettle and making shirts out of them. She didn’t answer their questions as to why she was doing this.

If you are new to Conscious Living with Carmen, first of all, welcome and thank you so much for joining.  Second, as an intro to this article, I started a day job at the beginning of April this year after respectively a couple of years working for myself and then being on welfare. This new job has turned my world around. I’ve been struggling with lack of sleep since then.

This experience, though, has helped me dive deeper into living consciously.

One practice to keep aligned while busy

When you have a busy day or busy days because of work or children it oftentimes happens that we keep going while disregarding our feelings. We don’t always have time to sit down and feel what we feel. Work needs to be done, children need to be fed, dogs need to be walked or just things need to be done.

That’s why, at the end of almost every day, I sit and feel during which parts of the day I felt confused, insecure, frustrated or whatever.

I used to forget those moments by losing myself in something, like tv, Netflix, chocolate or just common “business”. I didn’t feel the need nor the desire to sit with my “negative” emotions. I’de rather watch other people go through drama (aka Netflix) instead of giving space to my own.

I had a beautiful topic lined up for this week ( What no one tells you about friendships) and I’m so sorry to not be able to write about it. Last Thursday my mom called that my dad was in the hospital. That was a big scare but everything is all right now. But from Thursday onwards my days went differently than planned and I haven’t found the time to write this post.

So I’m going to do it a little bit differently for this week.

I will share with you a Facebook post I wrote and the comments on that post because I believe that information can be very valuable to you if it resonates.

So below you will find the Facebook post, 2 comments on that post and my replies to those comments.
