As I let go, trust the process and stay in the flow, the great possibilities that I dreamed for my life begin to manifest. And the truth is rather unbelievable. Suddenly I’m presented with opportunities that I had only previously dared to journal or list in the wild recesses of my mind. It’s exciting and scary and could be easily sabotaged by my ego, yet instead, I exhale.

In my yoga classes I talk about the exhale as an opportunity to release negative emotion. Sometimes I say, “Let go of that which no longer serves you.” Usually this opportunity to disengage takes place after a rather rigorous or challenging sequence of asana poses. On one level, there is relief, and it should feel good. I know as a yoga teacher though that it is not an opportunity to relax. The practice is still active, and muscular energy, maintaining the integrity of the foundation of the pose is necessary, in order for the exhale to have its maximum effect.

And the same is true off of the mat: I am exhaling, yet I am strong. Such a different way to live life. And it creates, for me, an unwavering commitment to my heart and its connection to the universe that is abundant, without limits and dimensionless. Flying must feel like this, I think to myself. And I inhale, of course, bringing in new, positive creative energy, inviting me further towards an unbounded shimmering grace.

I perceive the choices in my life so differently now as a result of my daily practice of my 12 steps to personal transformation.  My choices are big because I believe myself to be big, wide open and fully awake to the gentle undulating opportunities that reveal themselves to me in such lovely serendipitous vibrating energy. And as  this new big being, the very essence of me opens up to the graceful expansive generous universe, a God of my understanding that was always there for me, that I am now able to bear witness to as my perspective has so radically shifted.

I’m up for it: ready, willing and way beyond able……Watch out world, here I come!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
