Starting Yoga

Leave a comment Standard

The first time I tried yoga was in college. I think I did it maybe one more time after and that was it. It just wasn’t really my thing. I did, however, get into meditation. I really enjoyed it and it seemed to come natural for me. Eventually I started teaching meditation and one of the places I taught a series at was a yoga studio. The owner was trying to get me to take a class and I just wasn’t having it. I already tried it and it just wasn’t for me.

Aside from the not feeling yoga the first time around, I’ve always had a strong resistance to it. If I was going to do something physical I preferred going for a run or throwing some gloves on and hitting a bag. Now that my wife is teaching yoga, I have seen how it has impacted her, not just physically, but her energy as well. I see a stronger woman, all around. Lately, she has been teaching me yoga and yesterday was the first day I felt strong. It felt good, but that is not how I was feeling the first few times she taught me. My body felt very uncomfortable and oddly enough I was getting really angry. Most of the time it would subside and I would feel more at peace at the end.

Aside from flexibility, strength and balance, I see yoga as a way of moving out pain and foreign energy to bring your own energy in to replace it. Essentially you are going deeper into your body. As I am getting more accustom to yoga I am able to use my clairvoyance with it. It will be interesting to see what chakras are impacted by certain poses that we do.

Starting yoga was not something I expected, but that seems to be a theme in my life as of lately. It’s nice to be able to not only surprise others, but surprise yourself. I just want to continue to become more healthy and to get better at being present.

Standing in your Truth

Leave a comment Standard

Sometimes standing in your truth takes courage. People may not understand or accept what you are doing, but that is okay. Standing in your truth takes strength. The judgment and invalidation will always be there, but will you? 

“You talk too much,” “You are weird,” “You create too much,” “Sorry pal, big dreams aren’t real.” The list goes on and on. Whatever you handle, will you let it bring you down, or will you laugh it all away? You might not think you are, but you’re stronger than it. What if you stood your ground and continued on your journey? Where would you end up? Would your vision come to life? 

Standing in your truth takes commitment. The way you take care of your body with a good diet and exercise, you have to do the same with living your truth. You have to be loyal to your cause. Remaining loyal will provide a payout better than winning the lottery. Huh? How could anything be better than winning the lottery? Well, in my opinion, experiencing your dreams is worth more than any lottery payout. The peace, the fulfillment and happiness that comes with a dream are priceless. 

I often read about people giving themselves only a certain amount of time to pursue their dream and if it doesn’t work they close up shop. That doesn’t resonate with me. I’m willing to spend my entire life fulfilling my dreams. So, all the invalidation that comes my way, it doesn’t matter. What matters is my courage, my strength and my commitment. A silly judgment from the sideline doesn’t stand a chance with that kind of defense. 

I’m an unusual person, I know, but I’m willing to let things fall apart in order for my truth to sprout. I’m willing to be patient. I’m willing to be criticized. I willing to endure all the growing pains. I’m willing to fail. I’m willing to succeed. I’m willing…

Strength

Leave a comment Standard

War torn and forlorn, does the battle inside bring you down?

Or does it inevitably lift you up?

Does your eye see beyond the immediate pain?

Are you able to visualize the gain?

Do you feel the weakness burning away, oh noble soul?

Or does the cold harsh night swallow you whole?

What love is left for your to pull from?

Don’t quit now, I know you aren’t done

To hell and deeper and there you are

Standing there without a care

And life may not be fair, but

To climb a mountain…

To be so close to the peak…

How could you do such a disservice to yourself?

Raise your hands, pound on your chest

Beckon your personal power and nothing less

You are strong, but you could be stronger

What will your seventy year old voice say…

about your STRENGTH?
