Moving with the Breath

I still see myself as a beginner at some things when it comes to my yoga practice.

 

I started to practice yoga a little differently than I usually do this week.

It’s been just over a year since I have completed my teacher training. During my regular personal yoga practice, I’ve discovered that my focus is on what poses I should do.

What pose comes after this one? What is my apex pose going to be? What poses am I going to do before Savasana? For this practice, I decided to move my focus from what pose I’m going to do, and instead I decided to focus on my breath. Continue reading “Moving with the Breath”

Number Meanings

This is how I view the numbers and their meanings. I did not check this against numerology, astrology or any other system– just simply what I am guided to know according to the various synchronistic numbers I see daily.

One- wholeness, unity, individual thoughts, desires, wants, basis for things to build off of, basic consciousness, first level, beginning, returning, symbol of cycles, basic awareness, returns to truth, “yes”, forward motion, safety, base, transformation, start, where we begin and end stillness, thought before action, heaven Continue reading “Number Meanings”

New Years Every Day

Most people at some point in their life have made a New Year’s Resolution. We have such high hopes to change with the New year. To become a better version of ourselves. Many of us use these Resolutions to spark that fire of change.

Then, many of us give up or forget our Resolutions by week three of January. Or maybe even sooner than that. I have personally made the choice to not make any New Year’s Resolutions this year. This is not because I am not committed to being the best version of me, but it’s because the idea of Resolutions is unrealistic for me. They may be unrealistic for you too, and if you feel overwhelmed or uninspired to make any New Years Resolutions, let me offer this instead:

You Can Heal Yourself

It’s not yoga that heals you. It’s not essential oils that heal you. It’s not medicine or any other thing. It’s the experiences that heals. It’s not the mind that takes a drug and then it’s healed, it’s healed from exposure to new perspectives. As we choose these new, healthy, more balanced things in our lives– we become that.

It’s your body that heals itself when it’s awakening. It’s your mind that heals itself when it’s changing perception. Magic happens when we open ourselves up to possibilities and experiences. Even if those experiences hurt– it’s still healing. It’s still growing.

Change is always constant– how about we choose what we change into, instead of going with the default.

I am committed to change for the better!

Sacral Chakra: Swadistana

Swadistana translates to “one’s own dwelling place.” This energy center is the storehouse of samskaras, which are the past mental impressions stored in the form of archetypes–the stories we habitually tell ourselves. The quality of this energy is Feminine, needs to be gentle, receptive, non-forceful. Sensitivity and surrender are key. Water flows, moves, and changes, so does a healthy Sacral Chakra.

I Am Worthy

When you start believing this, your world will change.

Many of us have high aspirations in life. We want to go places, try new things, go for our dreams. Many people have these dreams for their life– the experiences their soul longs for. Still, these dreams remain on the shelf, many times to be thought of from a distance, never fully in our grasp.

I have found that there is one core belief that keeps many of us from going after our dreams. Continue reading “I Am Worthy”
