How does Yoga, meditation, journaling and reflection affect you and help you to move forward?
Every day we are faced with life’s challenges. Fear, anxiety and turbulence are never far away. So often our hearts are getting heavy when we watch the news or hear from far away tragedies. How do you handle those emotions when they are taking over your every day life? How do you turn your wounds to love and wisdom?
Self-love is vital for health and happiness. Love is a powerful, positive energy that is necessary for a healthy balance between mind, body and spirit. We cannot recognize love in others unless we have it for ourselves. It allows us something genuine to share with the world, and when you believe you are worthy your life will reflect it.
Yoga and journaling are powerful tools to guide you to life changing experiences. Writing helps you to get clear about yourselves and your true being, your compassion and love towards yourself and others.
By learning how to tap into your intuition, you’re able to make decisions with clarity to ensure that you follow the path that’s right for you.
About 12 years ago I started journaling together with Julia Cameron’s book “The Artists Way”. Every day I wrote for 10-20 minutes. I do not consider myself as a writer and criticized myself a lot. In her book she encouraged me though to keep going and just write. It slowly helped me to figure out my life and the path I should take. It opened my heart and eyes to see the truth. The spiritual value of routine is nowhere more evident than in your own heart.
Changes and tragedies happened and I lost my daily routine for a little while. About 5 years ago I started again with Valley Haggard here in Richmond. Then about a year ago I lost my daily practice again.
Often people talk about serendipity and I just found another book from Cameron on my shelf which I have not paid any attention to at all!
“It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again”.
Why do I write all this to you?
I would like to inspire you to create a new routine and write every morning 2-3 pages in your journal. As we write each morning about whatever is current for us, feelings of loss, confusion, excitement, wonder, regrets we may find feelings of peace and guidance as we write. Those pages give us a path throughout our day, a place to set your own goals. Journaling provides us with healing as we communicate through our pen. Often I find myself guided when I write and are amazed what is revealed on those pages.
So lets start together and find a new routine! Who is in? Let me know and send me an email or let me know on FB.
We can also meet once a month at the studio with our journals and a class of wine!
