I love to write. But its really scary putting things out into the world. I fear criticism, I've received criticism (not sure why those people still follow me) I've had someone misinterpret what I've written, all this has made me feel very nervous to write, it makes me doubt. And as it is with the duality of life, I've experienced praise, I've been published, I have true well wishers, encouragers ... and then on the inside there's a feeling of true alignment!! Which is a JOY. There's a FLOW, and a feeling of strength & resolve.
But I want to touch specifically on one of the greatest obstacles on the path of Dharma....doubt. What do you do when you feel this doubt? I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. Doubt can work its way into your heart, your mind and can prevent us from being our most fulfilled and truthful self. It can be a tricky feeling, as we can begin to build a story to back up the doubt too! I think us humans are masters at this.
Anyho... back to writing. I feel the pull TO write, there's an attraction for me writing down words, feelings, tips, tools, poems.. I like to express what I'm learning, to offer students way's of engaging with Yoga, I enjoy sharing my love of Yoga and how it informs my days, and how it can help others.
So I've started on this NEW MOON to:
Pull the weeds
Listen to the doubts
Clear the pathway
Unsubscribe // yes THAT joyful button \\
To narrow things down & prioritise
Less is More is my mantra right now
Reviewing my commitments (on line, in real life)
Checking in, does this support my path or not?
All these are necessary steps if your world is feeling cloudy with a sprinkle of doubt (or a chance of meatballs LOL).
Enjoy this NEW MOON and its magical potential!
Much love xx
