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:

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 it goes through that cause it to heal. 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!
What I learned from cleaning out my closet.
Today I decided to sort out my closet. I, like many people, have many clothes that I hardly wear. This creates lots of clutter that I deal with daily. I’ve wanted to clean out my closet for a while now, but it has always been too overwhelming.
I have told myself in the past that cleaning out the closet is hard. Throwing things out is rough. I want to hold onto clothes that “I might need one day” or clothes that are “practically new” but never worn.
I was telling myself a story about organizing my closet– That it’s too difficult for me to do. What if I’m wrong about this story I created? Continue reading “What if I’m Wrong?”
On the last day of my yoga teacher training, we gave our final presentations. In the first half, we presented a yoga sequence. For the second half, we talked about our experiences through the teacher training. I was the last one to present– I was so anxious about presenting, everyone before me had gone and done a fabulous job. After I had started presenting, I was crying and way too nervous, I couldn’t follow my notes. It was embarrassing! I couldn’t believe I couldn’t even get through my presentation without having a hard time. I was never good at speaking in front of people, and I was living in my fear with everyone watching me– Crying in front of a group of people. Continue reading “Emotional Healing Through Yoga”
Take a moment to think about the thought you were just thinking. Whatever you were just thinking about is creating your future. We tend to believe what our mind thinks about the most. What are the quality of your thoughts in this moment? What we tell ourselves reflect our emotional and mental state. One way to help shift your emotions and your future is to use positive affirmations. Affirmations are a fun way to retrain how you think about yourself.
Affirmations are one tool I recommend for anyone looking to shift their life in a simple way. Using them daily provides the best results. There are many different ways to use affirmations. Here are three ways I like to use them: Continue reading “Affirmations: 3 Ways to Use Them”
How to be Present
More than anything, I have found that meditation is the best in bringing me to the present moment. Meditation has been proven to decrease physical pain and anxiety. But, what exactly is meditation? It’s a technique used to attain a state of consciousness that’s different from the waking state.
Meditation is focused attention on something. Many people use the breath as their “anchor” for meditation. The joy that comes from meditation is everlasting in our lives. Meditation also leads to being non-reactive to our emotions and thoughts. How do we get to this place of non-reactivity in our lives? Continue reading “Meditation and You”
Conditional Love = From the Mind
Unconditional Love = From the Heart center
The center that you’re living from is the quality of love you experience. Settle into your heart-space to experience unconditional love towards yourself and others.
