Energy ebbs and flows - that's why it's nice to observe moon days 🌙 🌖🌗🌘🌓🌑
These are traditionally non practice days, opportunities to retreat. And yet, rebel as I may be, I strongly desired to practice this morning anyway - my own modification or version of the primary series. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's something I've struggled with. For about two years I've really grappled with my ashtanga Asana practice, made very little "progress" - and I had all sorts of judgment both of the practice and of myself wrapped up in that. Meanwhile, I was working on the other limbs and I let that be enough.
Today, I wondered if this is the day I let go of my aversion to my ashtanga practice.
I saw that just by holding on to this massive judgment of myself and of the practice, I impeded my own progress. I'd got stuck - for years - and today I felt I could see why.
These full moons are a great time to let go of those things that hold us back. They can be a powerful time to overcome bad habits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My initial intention was to let go of this aversion to my practice, so that I can actually build a daily practice that I so desire. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But more than that, I let go of judging myself, which was actually the thing that held me back in the first place.
What is it that you could do with letting go of today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is with great honour to find myself collaborating with @erfandaliri (amongst all the other amazing organisers) on this change provoking heart-child that is @newkindfestival 🙏🏾
Day one is finally HERE and I just feel so blessed to be surrounded by such inspiring, light loving and deeply accepting and connected conscious humans around me! I am curious and excited to sense what the following days will unfold both within and with out! I also feel truly blessed and whole having my family here by my side 🐶👫
