For The Constant Bracing Shock Of Now
there's a song by kevin devine called another bag of bones that came out more than a decade ago and has always made me feel some type of way. as the title implies, it's not uplifting and it's pretty uncomfortable, but a line in it has always stuck with me -- "it's the constant bracing shock of now, it's the whole damn world turned inside out."
this formula had been working itself out in my head for months before it came through to me clearly. it's to support you dealing with the constant bracing shock of now. these are undeniably triggering times and i know i'm not the only one struggling. this blend has been helping me lately and i want to offer it to you as well.
this is supportive for your nervous system. stressing yourself out reading every single person's opinion? wonder why everyone believes they are an expert? yeah, i did that too.
does your heart hurt because of any of the following: live in a different state than your parents, your partner, your friends? live in the same neighborhood as any of the above but can't see them, touch them, cook and eat with them? stuck in the same house as any of them and having a hard time? yeah - i feel you, friend.
it took me a minute to realize one of the things i was feeling was grief - almost everything is different than it was 2 months ago and it feels fucking crazy and it feels like a loss because it is. a loss of normalcy, a loss of certainty, a loss of the illusion of certainty or normalcy.
nobody knows what's coming but what i do know for sure is that plants can help us deal. this is my offering.
tinctures of: milky oats (avena sativa), motherwort (leonurus cardiaca), hawthorn berry (crataegus sp), mimosa bark and flower (albizia julibrissin), borage (borago officinalis)
