POTENTIALITY: CREATE YOUR BEST LIFE
MAY 8th, 2009: On this beautiful Mother's Day weekend, where we honor the power of creation itself, I feel deeply inspired by all of the Mom's that practice yoga with us at TBY. I see their strength and quiet courage in making time for their own nourishment on the yoga mat so that they have more to give their children and partners. You are all amazing in that you are modeling such healthy choices for your families! Keep shining out for you are making the world better not only for your kids but for the children of your children. This ripple of self-love lasts forever!
And I'd like to especially recognize all the current pregnant goddesses practicing with us in almost every single class. What a humbling expression of love to be in the practice with such a powerful being growing inside.
Finally I bow in gratitude to one of the most powerful women I know, my mentor Shiva Rea, who inspires me with such infinite goddess energy to be a better person and teacher each and every day. Yesterday she wrote these words that I totally embrace and want to share with you, "All praises to the men who love women and the women who love men...Ah Shiva-Shakti!"
You see this practice is one of finding the balance and honoring the power of creation and the action required to direct that energy into new realms. We are Shiva Shakti, we are sun, moon, Zeus and Athena, Sita and Ram. Through spiritual practice we can find that perfect harmony within ourselves. We discover our potential for more and greater things! Even if the way we are doing life now is good, it can evolve more as our nature is one of expansion and creativity. So today letís harness our own creative power to give birth to the next stage of our lives, to our best self ever! Listen to your heart, Silvia
