that you are your own
healer, hero and leader
Hello wise friend,
I believe the right words, at the right time, always appear. After all, life is always talking to us.
I’m talking about words that seek us out. Have a desire to be seen, pulled in closer. Drunk. Understood.
Words that ask us to stand up straight. Take notice.
Words that seep into our interior. Speak the language of our soul. Awaken dormant corners. Clear the fog. Help us see the bigger picture. Brighten our horizons.
Words that soothe a worried heart, help us feel safe again or offer comfort a weary body
Inward by Yung Peublo has all these qualities. It’s a collection of poems, prose and short essays. You may have come across his book. I’m sure many of you have already read it, but if you haven’t, I highly recommend. It’s a keeper. A companion for life. Medicinal words to read as a tonic. A little pick me up.
Here’s a couple of my favourite verses to give you an idea of his style.
I am at my strongest
when I am calm
fear seeks control
revenge prolongs pain
animosity disrupts peace
compassion ignites healing
honesty releases burden
happiness is letting go
how to lead yourself.
- develop a relationship with your intuition
- have the courage to follow it’s guidance
the body knows what it requires.
I’m hanging out a little bit these days on instagram, sharing rituals, earth remedies and therapeutic practices. Drop by and say hello.
Reminder that I’ve also got a few free guided meditations over on soundcloud. The Evening Ritual of Softening and Slow Rest are the most popular one at the moment.
My next Slow Rest Retreat is in France, this September. I’d love it if you could join me. There’s still a couple of spots available. Can’t quite believe it will be my fifth year facilitating retreats at Tamsin’s French country home. Click here for all the relaxing details.
Okay, that’s it from me at the moment.
Much love to you from Bali. xox Carole
p.s and yes, that’s a picture of me below in France last year eating lunch on our verandah. Not sure who I”m channeling but it was an unusually hot day for September hence the scarf on my head.
