Internal Drishti

I have been thinking of my own internal drishti and where I am feeling attention drawn to during practice. Drishti – our focus – gaze point. Usually we think of drishti points with eyes open. We also have internal drishti as we close our eyes and attune to our third eye. We also practice internal drishti when we focus our attention to a certain body part or chakra center – we draw our attention to these areas. In my practice my eyes are closed in many poses and it allows me to connect much deeper.

Journal / Reflection questions : How does internal drishti affect your practice? Where is your attention drawn to in your practice? Does it need redirecting? For me there are practices where I am more present than others and my drishti has a lot to do with that.

Internal Drishti

With closed eyes…I practice.
My attention is drawn to my core, my chest, my center.
Looking inward

I am guided to my inner strength.

With closed eyes…I practice.
I long to get to a quieter space.
Looking inward

I slow the pace of thoughts and actions. I find my breath.

With closed eyes…I practice.
I find a world beyond my physical eyes.
Looking inward

I meet a genuine presence. My True Self.

Namaste – Kerry
