Yup, I'm Guilty. The Lesson of the Week

Yup, you caught me. I am guilty as charged. For the last couple of weeks I have been hyperventilating and stressing so much that I created a serious kink in my back that is taking some serious love to work out..

Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Yoga, Meditation.... all in the hopes of loosening the clenching that was actually caused by, you guessed it, yours truly.

I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the effort of churning out great content and developing a viable business of service. It was not until I entered Yoga class on Monday morninggreeted by a new and ambitious teacher, that I received my wake up call.

I arrived a couple of minutes late, and so the class was already into their flow sequence. I unrolled my mat and began to join in. I instantly became aware that what I was being guided to do was NOT what my body and breath were ready to do.  At first I thought, what the f*ck! Doesn't she know I need a considerable amount of warming up to keep up this pace? And after maybe one or two more attempts from my ego to get pissed and find fault in her style, I got the lesson I needed so badly that day. 

What a gift this young, perky, Lululemon-clad teacher had given me. I was smacked in the face with a choice. I could continue to move further out of my comfort zone and muscle through this hour and a half, OR I could listen to my inner wisdom, breathe, and choose my own rhythm.  

Needless to say, I really needed this lesson. It brought me back to my sense of power. The power we each have to choose how to use our energy and at what pace. That class ended up being one of the fastest classes I can remember.  Not because I kept a fast pace, but because I had to be so conscious of what was right for me and this made time seem irrelevant. 

The gift here I would hope that for you to take away from my own lesson is to stand in your truth and power at all times. Your heartbeat and your breath are the most effective places from which to live. It is our minds that hurry us into stress and out of being. So, the next time you feel yourself becoming overwhelmed and anxious remember the kink in my back, remember the yoga teacher sent from heaven, and breathe. 

Blessings to you my dear one

Love, 

Erika
