At the end of my practice I've noticed lately I have been asking on a higher level for help with my goals. Like as of now I would like to manifest more patience. Patience with my family, my dogs, my practice, even little things like traffic, and the list goes on and on. True, true we can all use a little patience in all parts of our lives.
I would love to manifest many great qualities in life but patience is the one that keeps coming to me. Maybe because I am with a 19 month old everyday and want to be the best mama ever by getting down on his level. Have you ever tried getting on an 19 month old level? Well yeah it's really fun at times but as a 28 year old woman eventually you are calling for that good old patience:)
That is just one example of where patience is needed in my life, there are many more areas I can use it. I guess I share that because my son is the most important part of my life.
Anyways getting back to taking it off the mat.........
As we step on our yoga mats we become mindful of our bodies, how we feel and how we think. As we take that first ujjayi breath, feel the feet ground to the earth, open our hearts and still our minds we are now living in the moment and healing from the inside-out.
As we manifest patience on the mat, it is now a gentle flower blossoming with in ourselves. Gently opening to other areas within our lives that we can take with us as we step off our mats.
Whether your goals are to manifest other qualities like, happiness, love, compassion, eating healthier, quitting an addiction, or patience etc. etc. Step off your mat and as you feel and listen let your breath take over clearing your mind and embrace life with your new outlook. Open your eyes and look around, take in every color, listen to every sound and feel the sensation inside and out with each deep breath. Be mindful of what you want and go and get it, it's waiting for you. Like the old saying goes the sky is the limit. Let your soul shine!
