Recently I decided to embark on an exciting adventure. In all honesty, I’m not quite sure where this adventure is going to take me but I have a hunch that by being present and open to whatever comes my way- I will come out of this experience having gained some amazing insight.
You’re probably wondering what this so called “exciting adventure” is. Well, recently I decided to immerse myself in a yoga teacher training program. I’ll admit with my schedule and all the responsibilities I have on my plate, committing to a yoga teaching program is consuming a lot of valuable time. I say valuable because over the last three weeks it has become a challenge to manage my time between my family, writing, growing my practice, and coaching. One might ask with all of these responsibilities, why add yoga teacher training to the mix?…
Over the last couple years much like Reiki, yoga has become an integral part of my life. Yoga is one of many practices which help me maintain harmony between my mind, body, and Spirit. Having recognized these benefits, over time I have developed a genuine interest to deepen my practice and study the science of yoga. That being said, when the opportunity presented itself, I felt like I had to take advantage of it.
I will say not everyone is as brazen as I am when it comes to taking risks. However, I will also admit my natural tendency to jump into things is not always beneficial but I do think it’s important to pay attention to the signs the Universe offers us. When it seemed as if the sun, the moon, and the stars aligned for me to take advantage of this unique opportunity to outstretch myself, I responded. The best part is I have no idea where this adventure is going to take me but needless to say, I’m open to the possibilities.
When I contemplated what I wanted to write about today, I couldn’t help but wonder what signs the Universe is sending each of you; what opportunities are presenting themselves for you to learn and grow from. I also wonder what the apprehension is on your part to take a risk on behalf of your dreams, especially when you know deep down in your heart it would serve your highest good. Well, guess what my friend? YOU ARE NOT ALONE! While I consider myself to be a risk taker, there are still areas in my life which I consciously cut myself off from exploring possibilities. However, the truth is when we do this we also cut ourselves off from growing.
My question to you is where can you see an opportunity for growth in your life? What signs are you receiving from the Universe that are nudging you in the direction of your dream and why are you afraid to take a risk on behalf of it? Finally, can you recognize your fears as mere thoughts which have nothing to do with the outcome or success of your opportunity for growth? I’d love to hear what you think?
