When we feel, we heal.
When we slow down, we create space to notice the beauty, grow our appreciation for life, ourselves, and the people. We also notice what is not feeling great in our lives. And we start asking ourselves important questions like WHY AM I HERE? WHO AM I? WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH MY LIFE? WHO IS MY COMMUNITY AND IS MY INNER CIRCLE REPRESENTING MY INNER DESIRE FOR GROWTH, CREATION, DEPTH, AND CURIOSITY FOR LIFE?
We become Yin Explorers.
We dive deep inside us. And from the inside out we change our lives.
Yin Yoga is a tool that I’ve experienced a transformation with. It’s not the one and only tool BUT it is a powerful tool and reminds us of the medicine of slowing down, spaciousness, and that radical honesty and vulnerability we can meet ourselves in that space.
Maybe you’ll join me and some other amazing humans for 12 days of deep transformation in Montenegro next summer, maybe you’ll *just* have a very relaxing class, maybe you feel inspired to make a change in your life.
It sounds cheesy - the FOLLOW YOUR HEART - but it’s not.
To follow your heart and intuition is extremely brave. To do what you need to do and manage all your systems and different bodies (physical, mental, emotional energetic) so that you actually know when you act out of fear or your highest Self.
That part inside you that is never changing - call it soul, consciousness, awareness, light, …It doesn’t matter how you call it, as long as it resonates with you and allows you to deepen your trust in yourSelf and life.
Is this the path of fluffy unicorns, riding on dragonflies, and dancing with fairies? A part of it. :))
We experience the YIN BLISS and we experience the YIN TRUTH.
Both are important but there is no true yin bliss without yin truth because you can’t relax into your own being and fully let go without meeting the parts of you and life that feel dark, heavy, uncomfortable, and challenging to look at, shift, digest and let go, so that you can create space for the bliss, for the joy, for the fulfilling.
I’ve been following my heart for a few years now, if not my whole life :)
And I must say, it’s a wild, amazing, heart-breaking, and heart-bursting-open adventure.
A journey where you embrace the unknown and see change as an old wise friend that will show you what matters to you, where you’re attached, and where you fear change. It will show you your deepest heart desires and expand your capacity to sit in the unknown, do what you can (and sometimes this means to give your heavy feelings and thoughts space and then MOVE ON and manage your thoughts in a direction that serves your life).
Yin Yoga is powerful to release old baggage. And also to embrace new possibilities from the depth of your heart. Listening to those heart desires and going after them. Feeling excited and scary at the same time...and doing it anyway because there is a deep, deep trust you start noticing as you hold space for yourself during the yin journeys.
When I did my first month of yin, I’ve cried for a month every day. My heart was breaking open. I could FINALLY feel myself again.
It was a relief and grief at the same time.
Grief because I knew I have to let go. Grief because I knew that this change will be a one-way ticket without a return flight. Grief because I had to say goodbye to someone I love or leave places dear to my heart.Grief because I was growing and stepping into my bigger potential instead of keeping myself small and. miserable.
You can’t feel joyful if you are denying grief.
Sadness is part of the whole spectrum of emotions that we experience as humans.
All you experience can be teaching, something that makes you create space and create art of mess as my dear friend Deborah says.
Instead of getting stuck with the messenger, why don’t we embrace what the message does with us? Our hearts?
