Turning in our checking in each day is a reflection practice. It is a great practice to help you understand where your energy is and then build a practice around where you are really not where you think you are. This practice teaches you how to learn more about yourself and give you permission to just breath, or move, or chant, or cry. Allowing whatever to move up to move out.

  1. Find at least 10 minutes where you can be alone
  2. Sit our lye down and start by feeling your inhale and your exhale in your body for a few minutes. It may help to put your hand on your belly and chest to actually physically feel your breath movements.
  3. Invite a body scan and notice where you are holding or carrying tension.
  4.  Ask yourself what do I need?
  5. Wait and listen to the body.

Stillness when you feel a low coming on is a great way to tap into your flow. In stillness you can ask your body what it needs? Allowing and giving yourself permission to rest is an honour. Turning inward everyday to check in.

Low’s and highs are part of the game of life. The flow is being able to ride the fluctuations as they come.  These are our waves. The waves can also be linked to our thoughts. If are thoughts are all over the place, scattered, unorganized and reactive then our waves will be much faster and reactive think of a storm in the ocean. If we are to find our flow we need to move in between these thoughts or waves. This is called the gap, this space between our thoughts…the present moment. If we are to find our flow in our low the key is to begin to control the mind, even out the waves. When we can observe our thoughts without reaction or the story we begin to release the attachment to that thought. Our mind, thoughts the waves begin to settle and we can think, move, and act in a much clearer fluid way. This is our flow.

Often times in our low we allow the thoughts to take over and the stories we have played out and heard our whole life take over the narrative. We move back into resistance, reactions, fear and pain. To say in your flow means to stay away from the story. Move into the gap in between your thoughts. Be present.

In spiritual growth and learning mentorship plays a key role. A mentor helps us reach the rich soil in which we have planted our seed. The guidance of someone already living and practicing helps us find our depth and keeps us from stagnation.

Setting up the energy for 2020 means reflecting on 2019 then looking at what you would like to cultivate more of for 2020. For me personally 2020 will be about shining more light. My mantra to work with for 2020 is I am Light. To spread light everywhere I move. To help people feel this light. To give hope to others that we can do this. We can heal and sustain our planet.

My vision will be this creation of  a self study program svadhyaya. Each month will give teachings and tools around the energy of source (the earth) built up from a platform of yoga.

Inner Revolution Program which works around 12 Spheres of awareness which will create balance and inspire wellness in the persons whole system.
The lessons are as follows:
These are what I call the 12 spheres of awareness. This will be the foundation of a great year long teaching through inner guidance or your own inner guru.

I am light

I am already doing it

Universal flow carries my light

I AM Light

This calling is brining in more light to spread around this earth. My body feels open and ready to receive more light. My mantra work everyday is I AM LIGHT. This mantra will drive all my thoughts, movements and me the foundation for my work. Connecting and drawing in other light workers on the same path. The more light we become the more we can shift others.

Courses & workshops  that will help open the body up are good for bringing in more light. Yoga postures, Soundbaths and breath work can help us make room for more light. Each month at Inner Revolution we have active and passive healing circles. These are great places to start teaching the body how to receive more light.

I AM ALREADY DOING IT

This pattern of thinking that we are not enough really ties up our energy. I am enough and I am already doing the work. Reflecting on this daily helps me stay focused on the path of light.

Breathwork Healing Circle is a great place to help shed the layers of shame, guild, anger that keep us in these energetic tie ups.

UNIVERSAL FLOW CARRIES MY LIGHT

This is the gift. Once the work is done we can begin to navigate soely from a soul level. Feeling our soul is a beautiful thing which we all have felt. Singing, Dancing, Nature, Sex, Sports. Navigating from our soul takes transformation. It takes a devotion and a commitment to oneself. A daily mantra to work on ME. As the transformation continues we find the more our soul takes over. The less we suffer. The more we begin to understand. The more connected we become. Our soul feels light, free. The way you know you are being guided by your soul is when there is ZERO resistance. The pace is ease, light and free.

 

Starting the introduction offer is a great place to learn how to navigate your journey. This offer gives you 21 days to try out different styles and practices of yoga but also offers you a one on one journey to really help you build a foundation to work from. Yoga is about where we start. When we start in a more present connected space we will create a more present connected space.

The month of January we take a deep dive into the topic of Intention
What is an Intention?

In Yoga setting an intention is called a Sankalpa. (Sanskrit: सङ्कल्प) means an intention formed by the heart and mind — a solemn vow, determination, or will. In practical terms a Sankalpa means a one-pointed resolve to focus both psychologically and philosophically on a specific goal.

How do we set an intention?
1. We think about what it is we would like to create.
2. We begin to feel the energy of this creation.
3. We form a word, phrase or sentence around this energy.

When we set a resolution it is proven that very little of us stick with it. Why is this so? Well when we set a resolution we are looking at the negative. We are looking to change something about us, fix our body for example by loosing weight. Then once we loose that weight we will be happy. The problem is we are already perfect. We need to recognize what is great and amazing about ourself and then create more of that. This way we focus on things that we are already doing. When we shift our energy in this way we are 99% more likely to follow through. In yoga we call this a Sankulpa. We look at our intentions the way we want to feel and then we focus on what we are already doing to achieve this feeling and do more of that. So this year do not set a New Years resolution. Set an intention on creating more of the wonderful things you are already doing!

Mantra: I TRUST

Healing: Trust that I am already doing what I need to be doing, Guiding others into deeper layers of themselves, Awakening

Tools: Breathwork, Soundbaths, Meditation, Yoga, Bodytalk

Support: My husband, My children, My Yoga community

 

Reflecting on 2019 I feel deep gratitude for everyone who has supported me and this path of yoga. 2019 allowed me to shine my brightest. I felt the support and connected deeply to my own authentic vibrations. I was true to who I am. I allowed others to support me when I needed it. I maintained a high level of self care and was able to hold space for all those who needed it. I learned how to respond and not react. I got deeper into my practice but also embodied it and integrated all the work on deep cellular layers. 2019 was my year of integration.
