I spent some time this morning meditating in my studio. Even though I meditate every day, today's Meditation somehow felt different; I approached it with a hightened feeling of excitement. Usually when I come to my meditation cushion it's with a feeling of calm and sometimes relief. Perhaps it's the excitement of starting a new challenge for myself that is making the difference.... in the end I guess it doesn't really matter what the reason is, what matters is that I'm here.
I'm planning on a juicy Yin practice later this afternoon...lots & lots of Dragons are in my future. I'm sensing that I have some stuff to let go of & what better way then to get down onto the floor in some long held Dragon Flying Low & Winged Dragons! I'm using this week's Yin practices as my planning sessions for my upcoming Wild Dragon Yin/Yoga Nidra workshop...
I'm also going to dip my toe into the not too hot, but warm Yoga classes offered by a new boutique-style studio that is just opening close to my town...in the past I've shied away from any class held in a room that wasn't room temperature (seriously, I can break a sweat lifting my water bottle to my mouth! Do I really need to be moving through a bunch of poses in a warmer than warm room?) but I'm feeling renewed & "motivated to start fresh" (I knew that statement would come back to bite me in the ass!), so why not try something new?
I haven't taken pen to paper just yet, but will be visiting my personal journal after my Yin practice...I wonder what revelations will be shared!
Namaste my friends
Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really
becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can
do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at
