I was feeling kinda down today, I think it has mostly to do with the vibration of the mercury retrograde in libra, which will go on until the 9th of October.
Now, for those of us who are highly sensitive, this means that we might feel the need to take a retreat or a stay-cation ( staying at home, withdraw and not putting yourself out there that much during this period ) which is exactly what your soul and body needs.
So during these days, it is best to start your mornings with positive affirmations which will help to uplift the mind and in order to create a good day.
So, today I woke up did my affirmations and went straight to my mat, as this is my way of creating energy and power back into my body. I was working today on this transition, from bakasana to a tripod stand. I’ve been working on this for the past two weeks, but today I over-exceeded my body’s limit. I did this transition more than 10 times in a row and between 11-12, I hurt my schoulder blade. So I’m in pain right now, I never felt pain after yoga.
But what I’ve learned today is that I was practicing this transition more with my ego mind, as I wanted to do it flawlessly instead of practicing through my heart.
And than I realized that I sometimes do the same in my life, instead of accepting the situation as it and be there to feel it and to learn to grow from it, I sometimes tend to fight or control the situation, which creates a feeling of loss and disappointment. Instead of choosing to live in this now, with acceptance and trust in the your path and the universe.
And this is why yoga has changed my life, as I continually learn and grow through my own practice. And how all that you experience on the mat is similar to what you experience in life.
So this is my video and here I am so far, maybe still not exactly where i want to be, but exactly where I need to be💚
