I’ve had such a wonderful start to my day, I felt the need to share it with the world. In a word, this morning I’ve felt completely ‘connected’. This mornings practice, which ended up going for just over 2 hours (I could have kept going), was quite possibly one of my deepest practices since returning home to Australia. My attention was almost (I say almost as I would be lying if I said I had complete mastery of my mind) 100% on my practice; on journeying that little bit deeper into the body to really notice what’s going on in there. I was focused on listening to every cell of my body and taking the time to ‘feel’.
Since moving to Melbourne, a lot has happened and I don’t feel I’ve really taken the time to truly connect with myself. Because of this I’ve realised my eating habits haven’t been great, my energy levels are lower than normal and my overall mood has been quite inconsistent. But today was something different. I found ‘me’ again. I allowed myself to be vulnerable and throw away all the barriers I can create for myself, to actually listen deeply to what’s going on. I think another part of this is realising I’m truly following my bliss. I’ve been planning some outdoor yoga events and the response has been phenomenal. With no financial gain, but purely an opportunity to share the gift of yoga with the world, brings me ‘home’. This is what I’m meant to be doing with my life. It’s just incredible how everything about our being changes when we do what makes our hearts sing.
So, sitting on my mat with tea, candles, incense and beautiful relaxing music in the background, I’m going to continue to enjoy these moments of pure bliss. I can only hope you too are taking time to do what makes your heart sing also. Stop, breathe, listen and then do what ‘feels’ blissful for you.
Enjoy this gorgeous Monday.
