A renewable force.

Energy and Existence…United

Daily…minute by minute.

Breath by breath.

I AM renewed.

I AM living.

Morning Pages – Day 5

Hello Day 5…

Todays practice was a call to action. The words “practice what you preach” showed up.

Ok… message heard loud and clear. I don’t hear that message as clear when my pen isn’t hitting the paper.

Sorta like feet hitting pavement. Do the work. Walk the talk.

Otherwise…I can just find an easy way out…or maybe a detour to avoid the truth completely.

Or worse – miss the gifts that right in front of me…

I have received already what I intended from the 7 day challenge in 5 days. So…yeah I guess Julia Cameron is “onto something” 🙂

As I said in a previous post, I have done the morning pages before – for a day or two – but dedicated practice to it is powerful. Maybe it is because I have so much in my head and heart these days…

The process of putting pen to paper is key… its a moving meditation.

Release yourself.
Free yourself.
Clear your mind.

Just write…

Namaste – Kerry 🙂

What does OM mean??

Brief Introduction to the meaning of OM. A-U-M. What is it? Brief breakdown of the symbol. OM is the sound for all that can’t be put into words – I wish I said that in the video 🙂 Whatever your personal source of higher power is – is OM .

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

Savasana is Power Yoga

Savasana…one of the best parts of a Yoga class! Whether used as a centering time at the beginning of a class or meditative relaxation time at the end of a class it is powerful. You may hear some Yogi’s jokingly say, “I only came for Savasana”. It is what hooked my husband into coming back to his second class and now he has been practicing for almost 1 year! We come to Yoga for many individual reasons, but we often stay with our Yoga practice for the same reason. That time to just be in our own space is so valuable in this fast paced world. We are blitzed with information overload and non-stop activity leaving our nervous system affected by the chronic stress of it all. Savasana is about integrating your Yoga practice and being transformed by it. It may be the only time spent in a meditative space for some people all week so it is such an important part of a Yoga class. My biggest tip for you – If you practice at home – don’t skip it just because you aren’t in the studio. Take time to allow your body and mind to reap the benefits this pose holds. A deceptively simple pose such as Savasana is where the real power yoga is found.
