Making Time for Remembering

The practices of yoga are tools for remembering. For connecting to body, breath, mind and heart. To spirit. They help us uncover the inner light that is dimmed by the daily grind. By our conditioning that tells us to judge our worth by what we achieve, how much we own, what we look like or what we weigh. By our external focus and denial of our inherent divinity. Unless we set aside time to begin to look inward, to be with what is arising within us without trying to numb it or cover it over or push it away then we will never have the space we crave nor the true-sightedness and clarity that comes with inner listening. Here’s my thoughts….I’d love to hear what you could do to cultivate inner connection.

Stop and reflect when you hear yourself saying "I don't have time"!!

“I don’t have time” is a phrase I’ve been hearing quite regularly (myself included). At certain times when I’ve heard myself thinking this I’ve had to pause and be really honest with myself. We all have the same time available and for me it’s all about how you are prioritising the things you value. I’d love to hear your thoughts!!

Openness Requires No Effort

I’ve just started exploring the teachings of Pema Chodron - who is a Western Buddhist Nun, author and teacher - and they are so beautiful and very much linked to the teachings of Yoga. In this VLOG I share a quote from her about self existing openness. I’d love to hear your thoughts and how you might uncover this openness for yourself in your daily life - comment below.

Designing your Life Garden

I have an audio practice for you today that supports you to take a look at your life as a garden. What plants would be in it? How much water (your energy) is needed to make each flourish? What weeds have crept in that are sucking the life out of other more important plants?

This reflection is based on Pedram Shojai’s practice in his book ‘The Art of Stopping Time’ - I’ve added a couple of ideas and recorded for you to take some time out to reflect whether your life is a default garden or one you’ve consciously designed.

Grab a pen and journal and a hot cuppa. Sit in the sun and reflect. I’d love to hear so let me know - What made it into your life garden? What weeds are you going to pull out?
