The one reason I choose to practice physically is that it teaches me that things can change.
Yoga being the pilar of my life but now days I also challange myself with other physicall movments.
In yoga after a while you see your body change and then you realize the same will happen in the mind. Mind stuff and emotions move.
I´m sitting looking thru texts and pictures from my life for my book project and it´s both happy times but also so much pain.
This is also an important aspect of me.
To get to know me, you need a wider view or all that beauty would be a lie. Also nothing is unique with pain. That´s not the stuff your made of.
I wouldn´t want anyone of you followers and readers to feel that I´m this super person.
I´m just like you very very human.
Yes most of the time I bubble with life and live it. The food I create is filled with color, my movments are catlike.
I want to share that just a little bit of change can make a huge diffrence in your life.
If I could change into a different version of me than so can anyone. Belive it.
In order to do so you will need to get to know the darker parts of you as well.
Lets look at it thru the physical perspective. If you have a sore back, knee or neck it´s better to get to know those parts a little before you treat it.
Like open your hips and soften your feet to get that lotus fot up. Root your hands and use your core to stand upside down.
Before you can do certain postures the fight or flight mode will have to be challanged.
Your heart will race, you will get ice cold, turn all hot, blank out, become short of breath or just hold it.
Panic and stress will control you. Emotions of all sorts will surface and thinking will become uncontrolable.
On your mat you practice for the rest of your life. You learn that the breath is THE guide and the foremost movment in its subtleness.
That´s all there is to it, wink….. Breath thru what holds you down.
Some days it will work and that fake smile will become real, the clouds will lift and you will feel a change in your heart.
Some days it won´t but at least you tried and trying is also winning over that sadness or panic you feel.
There´s a bad ring to the phrase nothing is permanent because then what you have to hold to day might not be tomorrow.
But if what you hold on to is a big chunk of blackness then that to will go away and change.
If I can so can anyone, even you.
Live, life and love.
