Rising above the chaos
We have just experienced a powerful full moon with strong energies contributing to lots going on.
It can be a challenge to stay grounded while all these changes are taking place.
We are all being tested in different ways.
The question is, how can we bring a settledness to ourselves when life’s events feel chaotic.
How can we rise above the confusion, worry, anger, and divisiveness?
For me, one of my mainstays is my Yoga practice.
My practice helps me stay steady even in the midst of all the chaos.
My struggles have much less drama, intensity, and duration.
I can often maintain a broader view, see things for what they are, and smile to my troubles.
Yoga means wholeness: oneness with all things: coming into an integrated state of being.
A yoga practice helps us to experience the feeling of being connected to each other and to all that is.
It helps to open our heart space and expand our awareness so we can see things more clearly.
Awareness is essential to awakening: awakening to the truth of who we really are and to what matters the most in life.
A well rounded, integrated yoga practice helps us experience a more settled feeling in our minds, bodies, and emotions.
We feel healthier, happier, more vibrant and hopeful.
Consistency is key. We need to practice daily so that the vitality we are creating is stronger than the stressors of life.
Without consistency, our new elevated state will not be stabilized in our being and then we will slide back into the old grooves and lose our grounding.
Having a sangha – a spiritual community is important to help us stay consistent and connected.
In some ways, this past year has made it easier for folks to connect and partake of yogic offerings online.
For this, I am grateful.
Here are a few suggestions for today to help you remain settled and uplifted:
-Let the breath be long, slow, and deep. As is the breath, so is the mind. When the breath slows down, the mind will follow.
-Tune inside – Take a pause, take a breath, come into this moment, and place awareness on our heart space. Feel the relief.
-Accept everything: resist nothing. What we resist, persists. Allow all things to be as they are. Trust that all will be alright.
-Find something you are grateful for. Gratitude, like love, peace, compassion and faith are high vibration words that provoke a positive feeling in the body.
