MOMENTS FROM MEDITATION: Consciously creating my best life

MOMENTS FROM MEDITATION: Consciously creating my best life

Shortly after my meditation this morning, as I was sipping my coffee and writing in my journal, this affirmation drifted into my mind: I am constantly and consciously creating my best life. I reflected on this, and I thought I’d share what I took from it, what it means to me, and maybe my words will also land with you.

NEVER QUIT YOUR DAY DREAM

NEVER QUIT YOUR DAY DREAM

Take a look into our week spent surfing and exploring life in the jungle of G-Land. A place I grew up reading about and watching on movies. A place I never though I'd get the opportunity to experience.

THE CONDITIONS ARE ALWAYS CHANGING...

THE CONDITIONS ARE ALWAYS CHANGING...

The conditions are always changing... Out in the waves. Here on dry land. While we breathe and sweat on the yoga mat. The world around us is constantly moving through seasons and cycles and transformation. And we are much the same. So while we can't always control the conditions, the question becomes, "How can we respond?"

As I take another sip of air, I allow myself to settle right back into right now. Because right now feels good. And right now is exactly where I need to be.

The fountain of youth. The blood that runs through my veins. The substance that gets me high on life... And also brings me right back into balance.

LIVING MY YOGA

LIVING MY YOGA

Yoga is: stretching, breathing, meditating, union of the body,mind and soul… And while these answers are not necessarily wrong, through my own practice I’ve come to learn that yoga is so much more.

FOLLOW YOUR BREATH

FOLLOW YOUR BREATH

Follow your breath. Watch it as it enters your body and fills up your lung with sweet, fresh, pure air. With each inhale you’re breathing in new energy. And with each exhale you are letting go of all the things that no longer serve you.

But I kept coming back. I kept showing up on my mat time and time again. I was addicted to the practice and addicted to the feeling that I left my mat with. 

TRUSTING YOUR PROCESS

TRUSTING YOUR PROCESS

Compassion reminds us that we must place our trust in the process and allow our journey to unfold exactly as it should. Not how we think it should. Because really, in yoga or surfing or life, what is the final destination? 

FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY

FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY

Forgiveness allows us to move through life with ease. Forgiveness removes the burdens of the past.
The heavy, arduous bag full of all that was – all that stuff that keeps us from moving forward towards the light and towards growth. Forgiveness is freedom.
