Sitting in Joy
Sitting in Joy

So I ask you now, what are some patterns that you see happening in your life? Anything? Anything at all? Do you LIKE those patterns? Maybe they are okay but maybe not.

So let’s try something really simple that personally, I have been experiencing some amazing results with.

Ready…. Sit in joy.

Yes, that’s right. Sit in joy. Every single day, preferably in the morning before your day starts, close your eyes and think about one thing that makes you feel joyful. Maybe it is a past experience, maybe it’s someone you love, maybe it’s something you are visualizing for your future.

How does that feel? You may feel your heart beat, or you may get goose bumps on your arms, maybe your stomach flip flops. Either way, FEEL joy and THEN after you roll around in THAT for awhile, say thank you.

We are exposed to so much during our day, and other peoples’ moods and energy can have a profound effect on our energy. It’s astonishing how one person or circumstance can either really catapult you into an energetic high or knock you down into an all time low. It’s inevitable.

Unless … you manage your energy and sit in joy as often as you can.

What happens when you sit in joy?

Your world becomes your own. You manifest quicker. You radiate joy. Things don’t bother you. You actually can FEEL yourself repelling (compassionately of course) those energies that do not vibrate in your field.

What happens then? You ONLY manifest that which vibrates at your heart level. Which is … LOVE.

Easy right? Now go do it.

Last bit: pass this on to someone you love AND then pass it on to someone you don’t love so much. Why? Because it creates joy and that is what this world is all about.

    Variety is the Spice of Yoga
    We have a confession. Sometimes we get into a monotonous rut with our yoga practice. Sometimes, with our daily habits. Heck, sometimes we eat the same breakfast every day for, well, forever. That’s all well and good to establish healthy habits, but sometimes repeating the same routines day after ...
