Fall is here!

And, I am here…finally!

I am grateful to be writing again True Yoga Blog friends.

Just a few thoughts for you on this day.

First of all, can you feel the energy of change in the air like I can? Change is SO EXCITING…I love it! It never ceases to amaze me how perfectly coordinated the changes in our life are with the changes of the season.

Have you ever heard that saying people come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime?

Most recently,  in miraculous timing, a relationship with someone I was getting to know came to a peaceful completion and closure just as the season was changing from Summer to Fall and it felt so right to let it go without any sorrow or remorse. When we surrender ourselves to the seasonal changes of our soul we realize there really isn’t anything to ‘hold onto.’ We can let go with gratefulness and serenity knowing whatever changes are unfolding are for the best, always.

Also, I really liked this article about the Fall Equinox that I found: http://belsebuub.com/articles/the-spiritual-meaning-of-the-autumn-equinox

I was really feeling that inner shift of energy in myself that the article talks about. As we transition into Winter it can often feel as though a ‘death’ of sorts is taking place in ourselves with the diminishing amount of sunlight around us. However, this is the contrary. This contracting we are experiencing is actually preparation for the great rebirth that is happening with the dawn of the Winter Solstice in December. The Winter Solstice is the BIRTH of the new solar year. I love that there really is no ‘death’ only an emergence into greater and greater experiences of light when we really think about it, spiritually speaking… Read More »

Hello Faithful True Yoga Blog friends,

I’m sure some of you wonder if I really will be back to post on the True Yoga Blog.  The answer is, yes, I always will, even if some amount of time goes by.

So, thank you again for being so faithful and continuing to reach out to me to share your positive projects and inspirations because I love hearing from you and being able to share your positive work with others.

Life doesn’t ever cease to amaze me.  Just when we think some sort of path is certain, like Forrest said, ‘life is like a box of chocolates’ and it gives us something we wouldn’t have ever really imagined we would get or be given. Read More »

I’m Here NOW :)

Hello True Yoga Blog friends,

Thank you for being such faithful readers.

I know I’ve been saying that life has been so busy, for the last year since my baby was born, but it has been and continues to be…  However, I’m learning more and more how to carve out time for myself in my new reality of motherhood.  Speaking of motherhood, it is the greatest blessing.  Motherhood is all that Yoga epitomizes and so much more.  It is a tremendous lesson in being present, being patient, and selfless love.  Yogananda says the only love that is real is selfless love.  That is the truth.

I know you are such faithful readers because I still receive emails all the time with requests to post events on the True Yoga Blog, and, I receive emails from fellow writers who are hoping to share their writings with all of us.

I just received an email today from a fellow Yogi who sounds like he has a wonderful topic he would like to write about.  I am looking forward to reading what he has to say…it’s about cultivating a home practice in all seasons of our life, especially, during the very busy time of the holidays.

Do you know I’ve practiced Yoga almost everyday in the past two years?

I realized just how committed I am to my Yoga practice when I experienced being pregnant and being a new mom.  Finding time to practice Yoga as a new mom is not easy.  But, there is a commitment that drives me because I know how incredible I feel when I give that time to myself.  There have been times that my son has been crawling on me in the middle of a headstand, splits, etc.  I’m sure my fellow Yogi parents out there know exactly what I’m talking about.  Yet, we find the time to practice because we know how worth it is to move, to breathe, to center ourselves, ESPECIALLY, as a parent and all of the responsibility and challenges that involves.  What a blessing to have that sacred time of Yoga practice that we can carve out just for ourselves in the, often, hectic flow of day to day life.

So, that is what one of the upcoming True Yoga Blog posts is going to be about…finding time to practice Yoga in the midst of the busyness of life.

Oh, I’m not sure I mentioned but I’m also working full time now, too.  Life is busy but so rewarding to get to rise to the responsibility of all that God has blessed me with in being a mother.  So, while there’s times I feel challenged, above all, I am so humbled and grateful for the blessings He has given me… Read More »
