ch ch ch changes…

Good morning yogis!!! 

Change is afoot. Change is inevitable. Change is the one thing we can count on for sure….or can we? Yeah, totally we can.

Change comes. Sometimes we go to it, sometimes we run from it, sometimes we embrace it and sometimes we fear it. But change always comes.

Do you know the experience of your full life filling up your full days and not leaving time for much else? Do you also know the experience of getting INSPIRED, and SOMEHOW you seem to CREATE space in your life to ADD something that is IMPORTANT and you WANT to do…? Notice how you WORK REALLY HARD to put in all your time and effort, and you are run off your feet doing all the things you HAVE to do on a regular day to day basis, PLUS WHATEVER IT TAKES to accomplish the CHANGE your are NOW CREATING. Notice how inspired you are and how you don’t care about sleep, and how much you actually look forward to your lunch break spent working on the project, whatever it is…buying a new car, remodeling your house, getting your kids into college, building a business, preparing for a dinner party…you get the drift. We have all sorts of things in our lives that are obligatory, the things we HAVE to do like clean the toilet and get gas in the car…these things are not often inspiring or derivative of our passions, but we do them and make them happen and accept that they are part of daily living.

Change happens in our lives whether we are looking for it or not. Transition. Evolution. Doesn’t matter what you call it, there is no way you can keep everything the same in your life because that is not the nature of the world. 

I read an article the other day talking about mental attitude and how our thoughts dictate our emotions, physical sensations, etc. When you work out and your muscles are sore the next day, you feel excited that you did something, right? You take a “killer” yoga class and the next afternoon you are having trouble sitting down to pee or walking up and down stairs…but you love it!! Ha! You love it because you worked hard at it, you pushed yourself to create change and now you feel the results of your hard work. Reap the rewards. Now, imagine yourself waking up in the morning and rolling over and suddenly feeling a twang of muscle soreness in your back because you slipped and had to torque yourself suddenly so as not to crack your head on the ground…you slipped, not a big deal, you are fine…but the next day you feel it. You have to slowly sit up, slowly stand up, and it hurts to sit down and stand up too much. 

The emotional difference is that one is something that you created and one is something that was just handed to you. Same kind of physical sensations, right? Same kind of result in the physical body, but the emotional and mental difference is what makes all the difference…the sensations and results of doing full camel for the first time and slipping on the ice are almost identical, but one has you get out of bed, chuckle, bend, stretch, chuckle some more, grab your foam roller and tennis ball and get excited to go out and use your body!! The other, makes you not want to move, not want to get out of bed, feel sorry that it happened and reach for the Advil.

All change is the same, I think. Have you ever moved? Like a big move….how about a break-up? A big one. A new job? If you are the INSTIGATOR of change in your life, you move into it with excitement and forward energy, generally. If you are being “forced” to do something, like you got “dumped” or “fired” (such horrible meaning attached to these words!), then the resulting emotions, and physical sensations are laced with doubt, worry, anxiety, fear and overall blech energy…which is only forward moving because you can’t stay where you are anymore, they don’t want you!! Lol, we are such funny humans. If a relationship ends, it wasn’t the right fit anymore. If you lose your job, it’s not the right fit. If you choose that you want to lower your cost of living so as to have more money to raise your family, you choose to move to a different city where you can pay less rent and walk to work…it’s tough and difficult to make a move, to leave your home, to leave your friends and family and familiarity…but what is on the other side is so awesome too!! Thing is, with change, we never really know what is on the other side, so there isn’t that reward of knowing how the change is going to impact you…sometimes only an unknown, to which we can attach any kind of feeling or emotion. 

One of my mentors in my early adulthood used to say, “the only relationship you’ll ever have that ‘worked’ is the one that you’re in when you die”.

Be aware when you let your emotions dictate how you should feel…physically, mentally and spiritually…especially spiritually.

I love you, yogis!! I have been having a love affair with podcasts of a woman named Brene Brown…she has been studying shame (and other things), and is very inspiring!! More to come…

Have a great Saturday xox

Ask and thou shall receive…

You know the saying, “ask and thou shall receive”…same as “when the student is ready, the teacher appears”…it’s a combination between willingness and faith, don’t you think? One more for ya, “whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, either way you’re right”…don’t you just love those sayings? The thing about sayings is that they EXIST…which means that enough people have had the same experience with something that they needed to make a saying about it! Isn’t that great? That way you know you’re not alone, and you know it must be true 😉

Today is Good Friday. I’m not a religious person, so Good Friday doesn’t really mean anything to me, other than it’s like the Universe telling me that today is going to be a Good day. And, by george, it WAS a good day! Fancy that. I woke up knowing that it was Good Friday, so already it was in my head that there was no other option other than having a Good day. Imagine what would happen if I called every day by “Good” before the name of the day…imagine the possibilities then.

A couple years ago I listened to a bunch of cd’s while I was driving down to San Diego. I listened to a variety of different people, all on the same topic; wealth. The person who stuck out the most for me, though, is T. Harv Eker. (Who I just looked up for the first time to get the url for the link and saw what he looks like ,and he looks tooooootally different than I had imagined him looking from just listening to him speak!). He’s written several books (Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, SpeedWealth) and leads highly acclaimed courses such as The Millionaire Mind Intensive, Wizard Training and Enlightened Warrior Training. He’s very charismatic and charming and eloquent. I really enjoyed listening to him and felt like I really gained a lot from what he was saying. Anyhow, the point of what I’m writing about is his NAME. T. Harv Eker. Do you want to know what the “T” stands for?…It stands for “THE”! Yup, THE Harv Eker. How amazing and interesting is that?!

Just ruminate about that for a while…I know I sure have.

You are the only one of you there ever will be. Just you, just one. T. Only One.

So, because I know the Universe is always providing exactly what we need at any given time, I was reminded that if I just listen, and pay attention, then all the things I’m wondering about and the gaps that need filling…well, all those things get figured out if I just let them, and listen and ASK.

Nighty night, y’all. I’m teaching tomorrow, best get my beauty sleep so I’m ready for all my yogis.
