Have you ever listened to a recording of your voice and thought… whoa that’s me? Notice if you judge yourself for that beautiful voice of yours. I felt the exaccttt same way. This got me pretty curious about why.
In July 2018 I started recording myself, videos and voice memos … just me talking to me. Exactly how I would speak to a friend about the emotional issues and mental health issues that I would want to share with others in an accepting, completely non-judgemental space. Those times where I felt I just needed to ramble, to sort through, to sift through, excess stuff. It was and continues to be a HUGE lesson in offering compassion and love to mySELF first.
We are all just a bunch of little humans trying to the do the best we can, and trying to figure it out.
And ya know what? Sometimes we just need to be told that we don’t HAVE TO figure it all out.
The mind loves to process, to spin stories, and my mind loves to overwork… it’s a distraction technique, it makes me *think* I am busy finding solutions when really I am keeping myself locked in patterns that have me feeling confused and stuck. I’m tired just thinking about it!
SOOOO - yes I started recording myself. And it was amazing how quickly I began to see WOW there I am overthinking and getting lost in the mind pathways. And then WOW there I am really SHOWING up for myself with such big love, way to go little human Karina.
It became one of the greatest tools for developing self-compassion, noticing & releasing old mind pathways, and learning to breathe love into spaces of fear.
From there Karina Creating Podcasts was born… raw, tender, little tid bits of love, meditation, musings on life and healing from my heart to yours. Sometimes I listen, and re-listen to these. Sometimes I judge myself, and sometimes I’m brought into the present moment, to that big reminder that being here in the present moment, breathing and noticing all that there is to appreciate about this beautiful, mysterious life is really all that matters.
Truly my intention is that we can all share a bit more Love together, uplift each other, encourage one another, and celebrate just how beautifully unique and yet completely connected we each are.
What a gift to be here, with you. Breathin’ in Love.
