As we embrace this new month of March it's time to review how we feel, right here, right now. Three months have passed already and it's time to offer yourself a little reflection on how things are progressing... do you feel that your feet are firmly planted on the ground and you're super motivated, full of energy and being incredibly productive? Or do you still feel like you have a few little ties holding you back? Or are you putting yourself down because you've lost motivation and your new year's intentions are no longer in sight? I'm here to tell you that either way you're feeling, are okay!
Within classes the past week & continuing into this week I have given guidance on reflection, acceptance, letting go and focus. All great things that will give you a little boost from day to day, even if you only remember one small thing from class whether it's how you felt in a certain posture, you noticed a new challenge or my words resonated with you. I have said so many times and will always continue to say, every time you come and practice, you're showing up for yourself and moving forward in your life. Whether you lay on the mat for an hour and forgot where you were or you pushed yourself for the whole practice. You came with an open heart and no expectations.
The heart chakra is the centre of love and connection. The heart chakra is associated with the colour green and the element of air, it's all about space within yourself and your life, feeling freedom. It's the door to our inner temple, our soul, the infinite part of ourselves.
This chakra is responsible for regulating the energy associated with self-acceptance, self-love, compassion, openness, and unconditional love of others. This may seem quite an overwhelming concept in a busy world with rules, boundaries and deadlines. Even day to day tasks can become a burden on our self expression and heart chakra.
So how do we work with opening the heart? I want you to read through this list and make note of if they resonate with you now, or have in the past. Answer them truthfully as this self care and healing is all about you and only you.
