GROUNDING - HOW TO STAY CALM DURING THANKSGIVING
So we devoted today’s practice grounding. Grounding serves us as a simplifying force one which helps us plug back into ourselves and allows us to be fully present. This empowers us to find clarity through stability whereby forming a strong foundation for our lives. We feel in the flow of grace. We used standing poses and props to help us achieve the security that comes from connecting our nervous system to the earth and we all left the practice with our inner stillness intact once more. Ready to be the rooted influence in our families and friends. May you stay grounded and at home in your heart. This week of gratitude through our grounding may we bring harmony to the earth, where we are all in this together. Love and light, Silvia (PS see cool utube clip on my person facebook page)
A STRONG FOUNDATION: BEING AUTHENTIC
FEBRUARY 21, 2009: Our foundation both physical and spiritual provides us the opportunity to be ourselves. The stronger our foundation then less inclined we are to be pulled away from our center when we face obstacles. The objective of yoga as is written in the Yoga Sutras is to remove the divisions within yourself so that you can immerse yourself in the beauty and goodness that is you. This is the spirit of sutra chapter 2, verse 46. In the Bhagavad Ghita chapter 3 it is is said, "it is better to fail at yourself that it is to succeed at being someone else."
Thing is, it is a whole lot easier to be ourselves than it is to be who everyone else wants us to be.
So ask yourself, how do you see yourself right now? How can you be more you today?
I truly intend that this practice helps you build such a strong self-esteem and sense of self that you will be able to make all future decisions independently. That you will do what is most right for you in the face of life's obstacles. Sending you your best courage and wishing you your own best strength! Peace out, Silvia
