to stand taller
Full moon in Venus-ruled Taurus + Venus retrograde. Relationships in all forms, in all their lengths, breadths and depths, are illuminated intensely. The morning I woke and realized some connections have long moved past their relevance, some people, though very much treasured, are seldom available. A few are even toxic.
Why do we hold on to the things we hold on to, allowing the cobwebs to weave large and larger. Their tensile strength so steel-like, their roots claw deep into the chambers of the heart. Clinging to them is akin to self-flagellation.
The epiphany is heartbreaking. Waking up to realize there’s nothing left to hold on to. Even when the decision to let go is yours, emptiness cuts into the bones. The sense of loss is deafening.
So we spend more time on the mat, knowing the stillness that follows can be translated off the mat.
This and next week, we harness breath, mudra and mantra to root deeper so we can stand tall in gale-force winds.
This trio, in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan, taps into the natural intelligence of the body to quickly direct energy inherent in us. So our crystal clear energy channels can be reflected in our external world. Our ability to self-heal is incredible. Everything is inside of you – all you have to do is to show up for yourself.
