This afternoon while I was teaching a fairly intrepid group of loyal yogis through what seemed like a monsoon, I noticed how much the rain pounding on the roof was distracting me from really paying attention .  I was instructing from my head and not from my heart, practically yelling over the rain, lamenting the newbie who early on refused to relinquish her socks. At one point I barked, “come on, this is not your grandma’s yoga.”

I’m kind of laughing about it now, but it got me to reflecting on how I focus in my life and how my present moment awareness, although earnestly applied, can be so appallingly f*cked up. What is it that really matters? And if I know, how can I apply this awareness to a vibrancy and integrity that definitely marks who I really am.

Honestly, I think it begins and ends with love; a deep inner connection to the prana vayu or subtle body energy emanating out of the heart chakra that infuses me with love. When I’m connected to this energy center, I’m able to live and love in a fashion that reflects the shimmeriness of me, the spirit of me, the true essence of who I am, wholeheartedly; opening up to the invitation of connecting in love with everyone that I encounter. Every single day.

I’m grateful for noticing and also extremely happy to realize that I’ve grown up enough to notice when I’m not noticing. And I take a breath, and adjust my inner compass in the direction of my heart, allowing love to emanate out and flow freely.

Big Loving 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
