Yesterday I taught a Yoga class and mostly I like to have a theme, a little quote, a nugget, something for folks to take home and chew on. Why? Hmmm, because I love to have something to think about, feel into and or ponder. I think thats why philosophy, modern psychology is so popular, we mostly all want to do better, to be uplifted, to make good choices, to feel we are moving forward and upward.
So yesterday we talked and felt into what its like to trust yourself.
Now, I know this sounds simple. Yes. Trust yourself. But from my own experience, I feel like we are encouraged and directed to trust others, to outsource our problems, our feelings, and our confidence (just to name a few). I think that modern culture, likes it that way! And don't get me wrong, I'm also a part of this. I do like new shiny pretty Mala beads, I do love a great set of pants for Yoga and I do love my Mini!
When it comes to making decisions, we sadly often don't trust ourselves. It took me years and its still going on, to trust myself. My BIG Self, not my egoic, small self that is limited. I'm talking about the Self with a capital S. Because my Self, knows. My body holds this knowledge in the form of special powers. Aha, do I have your attention now.
Special powers are these, which we have been given since our birth on this beautiful planet.
Are you ready for the unveiling?
Okay lets go, in no particular order.
1. Intuition Diving // 1st Super Power - No coincidence that this sounds like Inner-Tuition. Do you make time for listening to your Inner-Tuition? Do you heed its messages?
2. Heart Listening // 2nd Super Power - What uplifts you? What makes your heart pound? What makes it expand? What moves you?
3. Conscience Feeling // 3rd Super Power - Linked to the first two, our conscience I feel is linked to our Intuition. Our conscience lets us know whats the right move, if we don't make that higher and best choice our conscience certainly lets us know. Just think of: a lost nights sleep, a niggle, a knowing that you/I didn't choose the best. We know it in our bones, we feel it.
These are just 3. I'm sure we have more super powers, but at the moment its sunny outside and my intuition, heart and conscience tell me to go and enjoy it.
Let me know what you think?
