Rev Connie Habash
Those things are important, but they're, they're necessary, but probably not sufficient to changing a pattern of anxiety within us, we need to be able to deal with actually what's going on in our consciousness in our thoughts, not just calming, soothing practices. Um, and that we don't, to not judge ourselves, especially as people on the spiritual path who are really committed to like, okay, inner peace and all of that, to not judge ourselves when the anxiety comes up
Rev Connie Habash 13:23
Absolutely, the first thing that I really try to help the clients and my students to see is that thoughts are not real. We tend to believe that they are, in fact, we don't even we're not even aware that we believe that they are, there's just an unconscious assumption that what I think is real, and it's true.
Rev Connie Habash
This is what's real…right here, right now, instead of the mind ruminating over something in the past, or projecting into the future, which a lot of people are doing right now. We're projecting all kinds of fearful things into the future. Right here right now. This is where our calm lies. This is where our awakening lies. Is we're only living in the present moment ever. And our power and our power, absolutely. Our power to change our power to transform our power to choose, right here.

Core purpose/passion: I am passionate about fostering spiritual awakening through the support of nature, the wisdom of the body, and the guidance of the emotions. Everything that we need to become more of our True Selves is already within us and available to us in everything in nature. The practice of Presence is my foundational principle, and everything else builds upon that. I believe that spirituality is personal and immediately accessible, and awakening is simple in essence, even if it isn’t always easy.
