August 4 Gratitudes, Intentions, and Affirmations
Thank you to those who sent me energy yesterday. I really appreciate it. Even so, yesterday was not easy. Because of how tired and spent I was I found it very difficult to focus and be efficient. I started off the day attempting to get there early to catch up on paperwork. I ended up getting a pep talk from Barry Cooper for an hour practically while sitting in my car in the parking lot. I am still behind on paperwork but I wouldn't trade that talk for anything. It reinforced for both of us how we do not want to be dependent on "real jobs" that rob us of time and energy for important things. We talked about our desire to need less, live simply, and invite our practices to thrive. Yes! Yes! Yes!
Right now I am missing time to sit and be, read the paper, meander down to Lisa's to sit on the porch, write, have a leisurely lunch, finish things. I also miss a good night's sleep, going to the gym three times a week, doing yoga all day, calm patience that is born out of enough sleep and meditation time. These are the things I truly miss about my old life. I think I am mourning these things big time. I am also concerned that I will not have enough creative juice – or juice period – to prepare my pain course for the upcoming dates beginning in September. Clearly something needs to change and I may see that change as I am in one place next week.
Ironically, as I have been absorbed in my day job, things at the studio are picking up. Even though I am so tired sometimes I can barely keep my eyes open I find that I drop into a zone as soon as I start teaching. With my conscious mind asleep (almost literally) I find my intuition is alive and well. I am so grateful for this! I now understand why people come to Living Room Yoga – NEED Living Room Yoga. It is an oasis of peace where people have a prayer of releasing the painful stress in the mind and body. It is this for me as well. Thank you UNIVERSE for Living Room Yoga.
Even though I am mourning some things, I am also grateful for many things, such as: Money accumulating in my bank account, continued support from my tribe of friends, Barry Cooper, all the beautiful teachers and staff who are doing their thing with love and enthusiasm at Living Room Yoga, my beautiful car (I actually had two guys at a drive through come hang out the pick-up window to admire my sweet little ride), very cool co-workers, patients, clients, and students, feeling loved, having more confidence now than I have ever had, being comfortable in my own skin, choices.
Today I intend to fully enjoy the teacher trainees, be fully present and alive, enjoy my work, drop into intuitive connection with my morning students and the scoliosis students, finish the day strong with energy to spare, have a safe drive to Orlando, be fully present with Barry and Jeevan, sleep well ….
Karen's mom recovers well from her injuries and surgery.
Karen finds restoration this weekend.
Karen finds joy in the new baby.
All falls into place for balance to be restored in my life.
I continue to align myself with the energy of abundance on all levels – in time, money, students and clients, resources, energy, health, and well-being.
Barry experiences this same alignment.
I am focused, articulate, and energized for my teaching.
I allow the ENERGY THAT UNITES US ALL to flow through me today to bring healing to all I touch.
