All I had to do was open my heart. Every time I try this I wobble, loose my balance and most times just fall over and laugh that this pose seems to throw me off. Today though, I figured it out. All I had to do was open my heart. When you are ready, you are ready and TODAY I was ready. As I lifted my right fingers tips to the sky, breathed deeply with one foot planted on the ground, strength through my left leg, I turned my chest to the sky and opened my heart!
What a day, my favorite moment of the day was just that little moment. When you connect your mind with your body it is deeper than just a twist to the left or right and turning your head towards the ceiling. I connected with myself. My mind wasn’t on yesterday or tomorrow but it was right there in the room on my mat that I connected with a higher power that lifted me up and helped me move past my fears, not my fears of falling over but the fear to open my heart!

It is exactly one month until my Life Training with the Yoga Shelter. At first I did not know what to think, I mean..Life Training? Who needs training for life right? I’m centered, balanced and happy and a optimist most of the time but after my 2 week transformation training back in November I found out I didn’t know me as well as I thought I did.
For most of you who probably know me, you are thinking that I am a self realized person so I guess that says that many of us need Life Training. During my Transformation training, it was just one week after my boyfriend and I broke up after our loving 2 year relationship. I had signed up prior to knowing that anything was even wrong in my relationship so needless to say, a lot of shit came to the surface. Not only did I cry, in the dark while we sang “Om Shanti” I also spoke up and shared what I had discovered deep within me. The sadness that I was burying to keep my relationship alive, my dreams that I had forgotten about, changing the world, being somebody one day, and making a difference. I unleashed my fears and discovered the invincible summer that lived inside me, it always has there and it had been hidden in the clouds and again it is ready to shine!
My Life Training is one month away and I want to share my journey until i get there and the transformation I will take afterwards.
