Meditate.

September 30, 2014

Asana is like a house protecting one from the heat of the sun. – Peg Mulqueen

That’s all asana is – a house protecting you from pain, suffering, and from contrary forces. It’s like the supporting tortoise for those who are constantly devoted to the practice of yoga.  Asana is not yoga. –David Garrigues   From Conference notes with DG.

I’d practiced asana (poses) five years before I began to meditate. I am grateful to asana. For me, it was a doorway to the transformative, healing, and real practice that is yoga. I reached a point where I knew there was something else to the practice other than asana, yet,  I didn’t know what it was.

Once I discovered meditation, I realized we move the body  through asana to prepare it for the stillness of meditation.

Though asana felt good to my physical body, it was when I began a regular sitting meditation practice that I sensed a deeper sense of harmony from within.

For me, 10-20 minutes of meditation a day created  more peace, calm, and space in my mind and body than a 90 minute asana yoga practice did.

Meditation is  THAT powerful.

It’s essential to the yogic practice and path.

Don’t know where to start? Here’s an article that I wrote that outlines a simple way to begin meditating now.

Want the guidance of a teacher? I’m super excited that Meryl Arnett will be teaching and leading meditation every Tuesday at 6:30pm at Atlanta Hot Yoga.

What’s Your Message?

September 29, 2014

We all have a message to bring forth- that no one-

(not our partners, mamas, sisters, brothers, teachers, preachers, homegirls, “enemies”, alternate ego selves) no one can bring the world our personal and purposed message—

but we can
hide
ignore
pretend
conform
fear
hate
reject
worry
“I’m not enough”
IT away-

I could go on (cause I’ve been stuck in all these soul-message sucking tactics +some)

I’m still decoding my message, but know that “live, free, create, divine feminine, love, wild, ahhhh, mmmm”  are all part of my message.

Ha!

And er’day I wake up and remember this: “If you bring forth what is within you, it will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, it will destroy you.”

What’s your message? and how are you bringin’ it?
