Do you distract yourself and procrastinate?

Do you use distractions or solutions in your life? 


This question hit me squarely in my chest!

Such profound teaching from a Yoga training that I’m currently doing. 

It made me sit back and realise once again how important it is to stay conscious of coping mechanisms and where and how we distract ourself, to avoid the pain or emotions we are feeling at the time. 

One of the biggest challenges that people face when wanting things to change in their life, is blaming their external experience. (Not realising that they are the solution to their own problem.)

If only my boss were different, if only my partner were different, if only this or that were different, then I would feel better. 

Instead of having the conversations, or confronting the situation, or doing what we truly need to do to free ourselves from that particular situation by taking full personal responsibility for it, we end up avoiding, dismissing or distracting ourselves. 

A major factor for why we may deny or avoid our emotions can be to ultimately avoid feeling shame for our feelings, needs or desires about the situation.


So we diminish them.

We squish them down.

We hide them.

We don’t allow ourselves to even be aware of them. 

We pretend they don’t exist.

We put the smiley happy face on.

And say that we are fine….. 


Except that, we are not.


Because your mind will still be looping.

You will still be filled with internalised anxiety around the situation or feel apathetic towards ever being able to change it. 

You may think nobody else knows. 

But they can see it. 

They can feel it.


And so does your body. 

Inner conflicts, stress, and living out of integrity with yourself have dire consequences.

Not only does it diminish your sense of happiness, joy and autonomy in the world, it massively impacts your physical energy.

Not being fully authentic is a huge cause of burnout.

It is a huge cause of physical fatigue and exhaustion. Because it takes so much energy to keep pushing your real feelings down.

It takes so much energy to continually mask your real self. 

Stepping back into full alignment, does take courage. 

Taking full responsibility for your life, and not blaming external circumstances, situations or people is challenging, but in truth, it’s the only way you truly get to set yourself free.

Hoping, wishing, and praying that other people or situations will change, is a sure way to live in resentment, guilt and anger. 

Internalised anger is a major metaphysical cause of cancer. 

Your body is always letting you know, first through your feelings, then through bodily sensations such as tightness, tension, or pain, then through physical dis-ease such as chronic states of illness. 

Your body loves you so much, it will not allow you to continue living out of integrity with yourself. 

It’s time to take care of yourself.

It’s time to acknowledge your own needs.

It’s time to get clear on what you need to let go of, what is no longer ok for you.

It’s time for you to step into your true power as a divine creator.


I love you.
