Spark of Desire

As I began to listen…

It only got louder.

Even in dreams…it is speaking.

Desire sparks a fire.

The light from this Fire

has a desire of its own.

It knows where we are going…

It lights the way.

Follow the light…

BE the light.

Tune In & Trust…

Look into the mirror
Into your own eyes…
Push past doubt,
Past fear, past insecurity.
Trust.
Tune into your strengths…
They will carry you.

Losing the Fear of Blogging

I got a notice from WordPress saying “Happy Anniversary” “You registered with WordPress 7 Years ago!”.   What?  7 YEARS AGO??   Years.  I had a few blogs here over that time …published then deleted them…until finally this past year I decided to just stop deleting my words.   I wish I could get back some of my writing from those other blogs now.   Yes, I still have the thoughts that come sometimes when getting ready to hit publish, but I have learned to shift my focus off of the fear and think about who may want to read this and not about who doesn’t.    My intention is for this to be a motivational space and a resource about Yoga….its not all going to be good – its not all going to resonate with everyone.     Sometimes I will want to delete it…or keep something safe in draft mode for months 🙂

So how can you just hit publish and start losing the fear?

Ask yourself:

What do I get creatively out of building this blog up and what do I hope people will get out of reading it??      What do I appreciate from other peoples blogs and what would I miss if they weren’t there?   What do I want to say?   Why am I censoring myself if I am called to write?   What do I bring in my own unique way?

Think about how many blogs or videos and articles you read and don’t comment on OR like…yet you do get inspiration from them.  Just because no one comments or hits ” like”  doesn’t mean you aren’t making a difference to someone.   🙂   So…Write for you and write for the people who are reading your stuff.

Instead of thinking about the worst that could happen – we can start to ask ourselves –  what is the best that could happen?

Namaste – Kerry 🙂

Side note…I plan to upgrade to premium soon and lose these ads!   🙂

2014…New Year – Divine Self Care

This is the time of year when all the “new years resolutions” abound. Most of them are around fixing something about ourselves or our lives. My personal resolution is no different… This year though I have much more awareness about how to use my Yoga practice to fuel me, nourish me and use more compassion and awareness in my self care.
The number one resolution going is probably around weight loss. Again… my resolution isn’t much different 😉 They always say more gym memberships sell and gyms are overcrowded. There is good in this quest to get healthier, but my intention is to come from a Yogic place this year.

So this week my question is where are you personally improving or planning to improve your own self care? How are you going to use Yoga and meditation to help you on this journey?

A lot of times other things are put before our own self care. Lets try to keep ourselves on our own “to do list”

I think true self care should come with a healthy dose of self compassion. Not judging the past, just acknowledging what is and then moving forward. We often beat ourselves up and it has come to my attention how often I do this to myself.
Practice…practice…loving kindness…practice 🙂

I have been thinking of the term self sabotage and recognizing that behavior in myself at times… this upcoming year I am realizing that I can use my Yoga and meditation to care for myself better. Not only in thoughts and words…but actions.
Investing in myself is “Divine Self Care” It honors my body, mind & spirit.
It is up to me… and my conscious awareness – daily – moment to moment – of honoring my true self – that will bring the positive changes I would like. Some days its 2 steps forward 1 step back… that’s ok.
Actually that is called a cha cha ? Right?

A practice –
Try to be aware consciously through the day when you use negative self talk
When you notice this – silently or aloud – offer yourself the mantra – Namaste

Affirmation:
I honor my body
I am making positive changes
I practice self care
and self compassion
I take time each day
in compassionate awareness
I let go of judgement
and step into loving kindness

I wish you well in 2014!
Namaste – Kerry
