Is there such a thing as being too introspective? For me, I think yes. When I shift into thinking, thinking, thinking and away from the intuitive feeling part of who I am, I start to get annoyed quickly with myself. This reminds me of a time when I was at the bookstore, searching for some kind of an answer in the self-help section of the bookstore. A friend happened to call at that moment and gave me some good-witch Glinda advice: “just click your heels together three times” AKA you already have the answer.
But I digress. Instead of self help, try a little shell help. You can get lost in searching for shells on the beach. It can be a meditative experience. Or, you can sort through a box of shells, lining them up by shape and color, looking for patterns and finding your own.
Journal if you wish: What do you think about shell help? If you don’t live by the beach, maybe it’s not shell help. Maybe it’s shelf help. Organizing a shelf could be helpful. There could be answers between the cumin and the cayenne. Or, journal about words that sound similiar but are not.
