I have so missed connecting with you on the blog, and it feels wonderful to be writing to you today. The past few months have been a time of intense growth, celebration, and new beginnings. It never ceases to amaze me the intricate, endless layers of the human experience once we bring awareness to it.
Last month, I achieved a dream of mine for the past six years and completed a 9-month Kundalini Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training. The gratitude I feel to have had the opportunity to study with the incredible Hari Kaur Khalsa at The Treehouse and to be strong enough physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually to move through such a rigorous training is an accomplishment I hold close to my heart. These teachings are empowering, confronting and transformational, and I am dedicated to continuing to share them with all who are ready.
I know as a teacher that I can only ask my students to take their healing as far as I have been willing to go, and I know I came to this life to do the inner work it takes to uplevel in every way. To walk towards the fire, the fear, the insecurities, and discomfort and say “what do you have to teach me?”.
Meditation has taught me some of the greatest lessons in this life, but none more powerful than we are each our own healer. When you stop looking to others, whether within your relationships or even a professional doctor/healer/coach to give you the answers you are searching for and instead trust they are within, the results are nothing short of miraculous.
That is not to say you don’t seek the support you need, it means that you ask for support from those that you trust and have your best interest at heart. The right support will remind you of the power you hold within and will never try to take that away from you or promise they can “fix you”. This is because you are not broken, you are whole and complete exactly as you are.
The biggest breakthroughs in my healing haven’t come from a doctor telling me an exact formula but by creating the trust within myself, this journey and the lessons held within each experience.
As Yogi Bhajan said, “I don’t believe in miracles, I rely on them.”
At the end of the day, this is a journey of awareness. Cultivating inner awareness in every aspect of life through stillness, trust, and surrender. How can you meet yourself where you are at today and grow from this place?
A few questions to journal on:
What stories are you hanging on to because they are comfortable even if they are no longer serving you?
What is a pattern or perspective you notice in yourself that you would like to change?
What is one action you can take immediately to shift that pattern or perspective?
In what ways could you be owning who you are more completely?
Be gentle with yourself. Give yourself time. This is the journey that makes you human. Ask for support and trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
It is through the difficult times that you understand the strength you are made of, stay present for the lessons that are asking you to pay attention.
