Greetings Moonbow Friends!
Here’s what I have been musing about lately….
During the Autumn season the Air Element is increasing. We may find that some experiences during the day get us caught up in a swirl of emotions, like a pile of fallen leaves picked up by the wind. You may notice this while listening to the news, scrolling on social media, interacting with others, or focusing on negative mind-chatter. You may observe how some events spark old memories that you “thought” were packed up and tucked away in the vault - similar to an autumn leaf hidden up on a high branch. Yet, with a gust of wind, the leaf is released into the breeze and lands at your feet, now offering you an opportunity to really see THAT leaf. Old memories - like the leaf- are brought to light in the present moment and may prompt a positive, negative, or indifferent response. When I feel tested by old memories or I am triggered by an interaction with someone else, I lean strongly into the heart of my yoga practice. This doesn’t mean I instantly bust into some strong arm balance or 108 sun salutations (although moving my body always makes me feel better!) - rather I lean into the motivating introspective practices that remind me how best to treat others and myself in times of challenge and suffering.Read More
