Re-member

Cassandra Stuart

Re-member (my definition): the practice of integrating all parts of myself (members of my body) that feel fragmented or overstimulated so that I can feel whole again. .
.
The simplest way I know how to bring myself back to my best self is to do a sensory check in and remember that I can make necessary adjustments. .
.
🤚 notice my coverings, am I hot/cold/restricted or free to move? What kind of fabrics are covering me? Can I loosen/take off/ adjust clothing? I feel best when I’m naked, in a dress or in a nightgown (no seams, fasteners or waist bands) .
.
👁 what kind of colours/images surround me? Are they artificial? Are they moving? Where is my primary point of focus (often it’s down if I’m on my phone or computer)? Can I find something natural to look at? Can I practice looking into my peripherals #eyeyoga? .
.
👂 what sounds do I hear, near or far? What are the quality of the sounds, natural/artificial, soothing/harsh? Can I put in ear plugs or listen to something soothing (#dangibsonssolitudes are 👏).
.
👄 what do I taste, sweet/sour/salty/bitter/spicy? Is my mouth dry/wet? Am I hungry/thirsty/satisfied? Can I take a sip of water or eat something?.
.
👃 what do I smell? This one’s tricky because scent (natural and artificial) are all around us and we may not even be aware of the toxic burdens they’re playing on our bodies. Pollution, detergents, perfumes and even natural essential oils can be overwhelming. If I have essential oils, plants or herbs near by I’ll take a sniff that help bring me back. Smelling citrus is also refreshing and familiar 🍊.
