What happens when you only focus on getting something right...like trying to do Downdog perfectly?
You miss the whole point of the practice, which is to WAKE UP!
Self-care practices whether they are yoga, meditation, art, journaling or taking a hot bath encourage you to wake up to yourself....to what your heart longs for, to the gifts that you bring to the world, and to the knowing that you possess.
When you move your body, breathe deeply or do some other form of self-care you remember your potential and that you already have everything you need to navigate this life. The outer world has nothing on your own capacity to sustain who you are and what you want.
If at any point you feel lost, uninspired, confused, broken, or disconnected from yourself, unroll your mat and move your body, take out your journal and write, pull out some paper and draw or paint, or put on your walking shoes and head out for a walk.
Everything you need is inside of you. You can return home to your body and heart, simply through a few minutes of caring deeply for yourself....through whatever means lights your fire.
The result will be magic. Your intuition and creativity will be reignited and you will know the way forward.
Lots of love,
