Last week at the Elemental Asana event at Yoga Six - we had the opportunity to deep dive into fear, love, intuition and thought. The power behind listening to our inner voice, trusting that we know what is best for our bodies, our mind and soul is great. We were reminded that NO ONE knows US the way we do and that our strength, our ability to pull our selves up and out of pain is massive. Jess and Beth took us on a journey - one that led from true heartache from death and literally having the rug pulled from under you. To one of realizing that true happiness, better health and finding peace and purpose are possible if you're just willing to take a leap of faith.
When you're living in pain and never really confronting where it stems from, and living in fear of the unknown you're guaranteed to get a mixture of anxiety and stress - your body will begin to take that on in a physical form either in illness, disease or deformity. This is your bodies last resort to get you to make a change.
Such a small yet powerful word. Change can be as simple as changing your mind, moving, leaving, saying no, saying yes - you are literally ONE decision a way from a different life. Do you believe that? So how do we move in the direction of change? We build our confidence, we meditate, we practice self-care and love ourselves more than we fear the unknown.
What is fear, really?
Is this really what you want to build your life around. Fear doesn't have to be a bad thing - if you know how to channel it. Turning fear into excitement - anxiety into anticipation of something great - these are all just a shift in your mindset and your belief of what could happen.
What's the best that can happen?
When you think of all the things that hold you back, that are currently keeping you from living the life of your dreams - more than likely they're just thoughts. Not your reality - you are so much stronger, braver, bigger than you can see yourself right now. The sooner you start living from that space and honoring all that you have accomplished and looking forward to all that you will, your life will begin to mimic your deepest desires.
Think about your ideal day, week, month - what are you doing? Where are you going? Who are you helping? Start creating a picture in your mind of the way you want things to be. Begin making decisions more on how you feel and less on what you think. Operate from a place of heart and mind - love and logic. Trust your gut - think of your intuition as your superpower. You have the ability to tell the future just by following what feels right, what is calling you, where you're being guided.
It's all Yours.
This world is all yours for the taking, but first you have to believe it. The most beautiful people come from the hardest, roughest of places. They've had to endure more than should be allowed but they weren't defeated and neither will you.
