Today I was practising #yoga on a rooftop terrace overlooking the Mediterranean. A light breeze cooled my skin as the shade protected me and my classmates from the beaming sun’s rays. This class was like an oasis I hadn’t expected and the hosts welcomed me with open arms. Watermelon, lime and ginger juice awaited me. But as I lay there, at class end, in savanasa pose, letting the calm energy seep into my nervous system, a creeping thought tried to interrupt this bliss. “This is too much! You don’t deserve this luxury! You’re being greedy! Who do you think you are?!” the nagging voice said on repeat. Soon my nervous system was agitated and my tranquil energy was scattered.
Was this voice right?
That’s when I remembered the words of my teachers; the guidance of my friends.
The world is abundant with riches and opportunities, but not all of us have the choice to seize them. 🧘🏼♀️But I do, and many of you do. And with this abundance we can help support and educate others, and share the abundance among more people, more hands and mouths.
Also, I am not my thoughts, and my thoughts are often not my friends.🧘🏻♂️ So, I stopped that creeper thought and let it go. Let it go. Watched it fly like a dandelion seed in the wind.
I’ve started to notice how my mind tries to drive me crazy with insecurities, doubts and fears. If I don’t feed the psyche, it has no fuel to run on … And then it disappears. And as a result my heart remains open, open to beauty, creativity, and others.
As #MichaelSinger writes in The Untethered Soul, which I’m re-reading here in #Barcelona:
This path of letting go allows you to free your energies so that you can free yourself. ✨✨✨Right in the midst of your daily life, by untethering yourself from the bondage of your psyche, you actually have the ability to steal freedom for your soul. This freedom is so great it has been given a special name—liberation.
Will you stop your creeper thoughts today? Will you choose an open heart and freedom instead of the easily-triggered psyche?✨🧘🏿♂️✨🧘🏼♀️✨🧘🏻♂️✨🧘🏿♀️✨ 📸: @elliealiceellie
