May at VIRAYOGA:
As we’ve established over the past few months,
most thoughts literally block access to your heart.
Recently we’ve established that
your HEART = CONFIDENCE + INTUITION.
We’ve also established that these qualities are always present;
we’re just being distracted by too much thinking.
So, in order to gain access to your heart,
put attention on a distracting thought.
inhale that thought down into the space of your heart
and finally, just for a moment,
listen to the silence there.
[note: particularly effective to do this when
blame is being tossed around, by you or someone else]
As you practice this, you will notice
unprecedented access to your confidence and intuition
in your yoga, your work and your relationships.
As a student observed last month,
“this silent space [of the heart]… is so potent.
glimpses of its constancy are the greatest embrace I’ve ever known.”
This month, practice glimpsing, for moments at a time,
via your breathing,
that silent constancy in the space of your heart.
