Thoughts to Ponder
The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.
Gratitude is an emotion usually found in the heart Chakra that radiates through the throat Chakra resulting in spoken words or gestures of, Thank you.” If you are responsible for every decision and choice you make, you create gratitude for yourself; a sense of satisfaction and acceptance of value. What a wonderful, perpetuating system of self love. Being in love with yourself is loving your higher power and all created by your higher power. Think about that. Blessings for a heart felt Thanksgiving weekend.
As we prepare for the holidays we are often stressed about the time, money and work that requires yet more of our energy. I offer the wisdom of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, “It is not ‘what’ we do, ‘how much’ we do or ‘how much we give’ that matters. It is how much LOVE we have put in!!” May I suggest a tool using your breath and thoughts to create a happy holiday: In those exhausting thoughts recall your best holiday memory and allow the resulting positive emotion to fill your heart. Then take five deep breaths with a long sighing exhale while saying, “I am love.” Adding a smile actually reduces cortisol ( a stress hormone in the brain) that calms the negative thoughts and your body. Throw in some gratitude and see how much better you feel. So, take a breathe and enjoy your blessings for a joyous holiday! Namaste’
