Tonight I had a customer who arrived at her session completely angry. She didn’t want to talk about it. I told her: “Great, let’s begin….” And she did, even though she didn’t really want to.

I admire that kind of tenacity. It takes practice, trust and an ability to embrace those first two qualities and let your heart go; leaning in to present moment awareness. She knew that to do anything but would only manifest greater pain. Honest to God as she practiced she began to feel better.

I focused on the shoulders, the hips and the heart; incorporating asana, pranayama and a meditation on santosha (contentment) that confronted, and subsequently invited a release of all of the pent up negative emotion. She worked hard, using a lot of Ha release breaths on the exhale, and never ever said a word about the initial reason for her anger. She just began to feel better and better; staying with the breath, focusing on the pose, leaning in to the light of the heart, in the present moment.

Loving Big is that simple.

Big Namaste!

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
