As we approach the cooler seasons, many of us force and push our way through to keep the momentum of our growth but as things cool down, as do we. Growing doesn't always mean moving upward or outward. Growth is also an internal process but we must slow down at times, to make space for reflection and nourishment. Think about it, plants are still alive and well although it seems like they are dying and lifeless through fall and winter. But really they are drawing in nourishment from the earth and turning inward for reflection until spring returns.
These times of year can sometimes make people feel stuck, or that they are not doing enough and become closed off. But each of us is still moving, there is just a bit of a slow down. Stop hurrying! Take this time to step back and reflect on yourself and your life. Look back.... waaaay back. See how far you have come? Look where you are... WOW, eh? It's time to turn inward, it's time to acknowledge yourself. You are amazing. Remember that! Release of your out-dated perceptions and LET GO!
There are several classes coming to Yogadown this fall that are perfect opportunity for slowing down and beginning the growth of self from the inside. The seasons teach us to follow the flow. Because life doesn't have to be hard, all you have to do is listen to the whispers of your life.
There is nothing to be afraid of. You will be fine. Trust yourself. Trust your body. Trust your process.
