One Grain of Sand

Check out this post with Connie Habash and her book Awakening From Anxiety

It only takes one grain of sand to initiate the creation of a pearl. The oyster detects that tiny irritation and forms a precious, luminous orb around it.
 
The grain of sand is Spirit’s nudge, bringing your attention to something within you or in your life. It may just be a tiny annoyance or a bit of irritability. Spirit sometimes taps us on the shoulder this way.

If you find something getting under your skin, or you’re a bit on edge, look deeper within. Pause and pay attention to it. Listen and feel. It could be waking you up to a message from your Higher Self, or pointing toward an important change that reveals your inner pearls. Registration Open – Summer 1-Day Retreat!

Awaking from Anxiety by Connie Habash

Awakening From Anxiety

A Spiritual Guide to Living a More Calm, Confident, and Courageous Life

Competent, spiritual people suffer from anxiety and depression too: Spiritual people often find that their own expectations of living a life dedicated to a higher power makes them more susceptible to high-functioning anxiety. Sometimes, traditional relaxation techniques either do not work, don’t last, or, in some cases, actually increase their anxiety.

The missing keys to managing anxiety: Psychotherapist, yoga teacher, and interfaith minister Rev. Connie L. Habash shows us a way to transform our perceptions using mindful awareness, in order that we may live divinely inspired lives. In over 25 years as a counselor helping spiritual people overcome anxiety, Rev. Connie has taught that it takes more than chanting mantras, stretching, or relaxation techniques to calm anxiety. It requires a transformation in perception, moment-to-moment body awareness, and a conscious response to thoughts and emotions.
