repost @theyogacouple 1 year ago vs today. This is not a workout transformation. This is my mental and spiritual transformation. In the yoga tradition the body can be examined to understand what’s going on in the unseen, consciousness. And likewise consciousness can be examined to understand what’s happening in the body. It’s all connected, the seen and unseen. For example stomach and digestion issues are correlated to the third chakra, the solar plexus. Which is the energy of personal power, self esteem, and confidence. In the yoga tradition, the experiences we have in our lives and how we identify with them internally have the power to affect the body’s functionality. So we can’t look at the external without acknowledging the internal. For years I was suffering with digestion issues, irritable bowl syndrome, binge eating, etc. I tried many things to correct the discomfort and to heal my belly. Cutting out gluten, cutting out sugar, even eating a strict PH balanced diet. No matter what drastic changes I would make to my diet or exercise, I was still was dealing with lots of anxiety and fear. The interesting thing is, I could change my diet over night but I could not rush my internal healing. I was doing the inner work and I was doing the outer work simultaneously. I was taking healthy steps externally and I was working on myself internally to free myself from own bondage and pain. When I would see progress in my body, I would correlate the progress to my dieting. But sure enough eventually I would have an anxiety episode resurface and all physical results would start to unravel again. And I’d be right back to square one. It was like the work I was doing on my body could only go so far. There was a letting go point when I truly understood I needed to stop looking for external results and focus on “feeling” good within. I redirected most of my attention into the mental and spiritual. I dove into my practices like I did when I discovered them for the first time almost a decade ago. With just as much enthusiasm as I first had when I initially learned about yoga, devotion, meditation, and consciousness. I immersed myself into processing my past.continued in comments

Say it with me: I am grateful for everyone and everything in my life. I am grateful for the gift of life. I take nothing for granted. I see the miracles all around me. Every challenge is actually an opportunity. Everyone I meet is my teacher. I always find the silver lining. I am grateful for every breath I take. I am grateful to live another day.
