Speak Only Words of Kindness

Speak Only Words Of KindnessIf you didn’t mean it, why did you say it?

In yoga, we refer to your word as a “seed” or “bija.” 

Once you’ve planted that seed it will grow. What you said is out there forever and it can never be taken back.

When you’re about to blurt something out that you know you shouldn’t…Inhale, hold, exhale fully and hold. Your breathing practices aren’t solely for  yoga class. Your rate of breathing and state of mind are inseparable. Calm your breath to calm your mind and life.

What you say lives forever. Speak only words of kindness.

Peace, It’s An Inside Job

How peaceful does it feel inside your heart, and inside your own mind?

It’s not always pretty in there- this is why we fill our lives with noise and distractions.

Yoga and meditation is an inward journey. It brings us home to our true selves.

It is a full body prayer for peace inside. If you can create peace within you, it will radiate out into your life.

It’s an inside job.

Give Us Your Presence, Not Your Presents

While you’re  rushing around buying gifts, your friends and family are hungry for  your presence.

Self-inquiry is a key part of any yoga practice. Stop and think about what is important to you.

If the people in your life are important to you then be fully present for them. Give them your time and give them your attention.

Allow them to be fully seen, heard, and  loved by you.

Choose to do things differently.

Winter Solstice

We move from darkness towards the light. We move from frustration, disappointment, anger or resentment to forgiveness of ourselves and others.

We begin again. Prepare now for 2015.

Consider:

1. Who do I need to forgive?

2. What do I need to forgive myself for?

3. What are the things that really matter to me?

4. What are the things that REALLY, really matter to me?

5. What do I want 2015 to be for me?

Forgive, and prioritize what is important to you. Find ways to celebrate life more.

If you need a little help in the forgiveness department, practice this meditation and commit to it for a full 40 Days. There is freedom in forgiveness.

Happy Holidays!

It’s Dark For a Reason

Nature fully supports you on your journey. Stay connected to what is going on. The shorter, darker days are an invitation to go inward and assess what kind of internal environment your external actions have created. Have you created peace for yourself? Are you living with grace?

If everything still feels like an interminable struggle, I encourage you to stop blaming and start owning your part in your story.

If you want to be happy, it really is up to you.

If you want peace, again it’s up to you.

It’s your body, it’s your mind, it’s your journey, it’s your life.

Try to love it all!
