turn it all around

Lessons on the yoga mat come in all forms. This one was a light bulb moment  when one of my teachers shared a creative way to experience the chakras. She removed the path of achieving, and created another approach to this subtle energy along our spine, one filled with kindness and love. And so I was moved to write...

 

I understand

I see

I speak

I love

I can

I feel

I am

How will I climb this ladder of subtle energy...to evolve myself to the crown?... starting from the substance of who I am with all of my emotions, determinations and flaws that pass through my heart, and channel through my words, and filter how I see this life in front of me... no wonder I feel this climb of understanding to be a 'not-so-subtle' journey.

But what if I turn that climb into a horizon... laying out each subtle energy as if they were piano keys, as my teacher once said to me?... then, rather than struggle to pass through and reach for the next... I play their subtle lessons together in each moment of my transformation to wholeness.

I am I feel I can I love I speak I see I understand
