When connected to the cosmic force of the universe, anything is possible. God is not a judge and jury but rather a sacred force that wants to co-create with us in our evolution.
There are times in our lives when the plug is pulled out of the outlet and we loose our conscious connection to the Divine. This is more than likely an unintentional act but life has the tendency to throw us sideways or we forget our daily work. No matter the case, getting back to that powerful connection is key.
From The Diary of A Spiritual Warrior-
My life over the past 3 years has been an emotional rollercoaster. I haven’t experienced such unstable footing since I was a teenager. And, on top of it, the raging anger that once plagued me was back in full force.
I needed something to help support me through this dark uncertain time. In so many ways, I felt like a failure in life. All of the work I had put into myself seemed fruitless. I asked myself, “Did all the self exploration and tools of empowerment that I had collected just fail me in the end? Was all the work a huge waste of time?”
Through my current struggle, I didn’t really trust the tools I had used in the past. Here I was, 40 years later with the same issues that I had started with. Ugh!!
At my lowest points, I always call on divine assistance. I’m a bit stubborn and it usually takes me a little while to surrender but, eventually I do. Always, without fail, the assistance comes.
Of course, Divine assistance came through yoga for me. My sister was in town and I wanted her to get healing from a practice that brought so much to me. But it was me who received healing—From the movement, from the Dharma, from the practice of letting go.
I was reminded in class to open my heart and listen to its calling. The asana practice, the movements and postures, open our bodies and move our energy. We bring mindfulness to our practice and it can give us guidance in our day to day lives.
When I walk into a yoga class, my prayer is that it gives me whatever I truly need and the practice always delivers.
I have, and probably will again, become unplugged from the Universe and from the practices that ground me. Since writing and reflecting on this very blog, I have experienced struggle in my life. In fact, I went searching for something to support me and the chaotic emotions that afflicted my being. I found it, once again, in a yoga practice. The teacher, a yoga therapist, reminded me that I had all the tools that were needed-I just needed to use them.
You too have what is needed to walk empowered in the world. All the guidance and wisdom you may be seeking is inside of you. It can be accessed through committed daily practices of silence and turning inward, of letting go and getting grounded. Tools such as yoga and meditation are methods to help you with the process.
Go, get plugged in. Find peace and happiness to uplift both yourself and this planet.
