You have no power over me
Sometimes we want to go down with the ship.
Sometimes the spiral is so compelling that a part of us wants to give in and be dragged down and broken into pieces, be dammed the consequences.
But if you look very closely you’ll see a small ember that always burns, and if you catch yourself and remember to breathe, in time this ember will be the only focus while the chaos turns to just noise and static.
The ember becomes the anchor and snaps you out of the spiral, allowing you to see the chaos for what it really is.
Sometimes when we spiral or are triggered we believe this chaos is stronger than we are but in all honesty it has no power over us, it only feels like it does, and it takes a small interruption or shift in perspective to see it ~ and then move through it while holding the parts of us that are shaking.
