Practice and let go!
"The appearance of things changes according to the emotions and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves."
Thank you for opening this message. I love that you're still participating in this 30-day program. Please, please, please do not worry if you're not doing it perfectly. If you miss a day, just continue as soon as you can. You many have heard me say, "just do your practice and let go of the results." In the Yoga Sutras, this is called "Abhyasa and Vairagya" Yoga is all about finding balance. We find balance in our physical bodies on the mat as we move through postures. We balance as we link our breath with our movement. We find the balance while generating heat in the body and then cooling it down. We must also remember to balance the mind by letting go of how we think things "should" be or what we think we should be able to achieve on our mats or in our lives. Just do your best. Don't you dare give up on yourself! Let the mysteries of yoga and life unfold as they will. Here is today's Louise Hay affirmation...it goes really well with Abhyasa and Vairagya:
"There is time and space for everything I need to do. I am at peace."
Additional "homework:" Get your journal out and write about something you were worried about recently and then how it resolved. Next, write about what your yoga practice was like when you first began and how it has evolved over time. What postures did you used to struggle with that have gotten easier? What are some things that you're struggling with now? How can you let go of the struggle? Finally, write down 10 things that you're grateful for.
