In Celebration of Change

January 10, 2011

In my yoga classes the last couple of weeks we have been discussing setting our intentions for the new year. Change is definitely something that sends fear througout every crevice of our body. But without it we never grow.  If there is one thing I believe in, it is that you can NEVER lose something that is right for you. If you let it go for one reason or another, you give it space to BE and to find its natural place amongst the backdrop of your life.

This year has taught me in particular that sometimes there are situations in our lives that are so deeply and profoundly broken that it is best to let them go, bless them and allow them to heal without the ego-need to control the outcome. Deep peace comes from surrendering the ego to the wisdom of the heart. It is through surrender that one frees themselves from the very mental constructs that they themselves both create and inflict upon themselves.

Make this a new year. Set your intention that this year things will be different. Leave the past behind and open up to a new future. You owe it to yourself.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
