Listen to your Soul Self.

July 1, 2018

As I practised Pranayama breathing I began to cry. My chest was tight with every inhale and with every exhale I felt a sharp pain across my shoulders, chest and throat.
I moved through the class trying to keep it together, comforted by the fact that no one would notice (we sweat ALOT through Bikram Yoga.)

I brought my hand to my heart centre in Tree Pose and I tried to stand tall and proud (something that I always encourage students to do) but I was struggling. I heard the teacher say, ‘Let your breath be you anchor.’

So I did.

I kept my eyes opened. I knew I needed to keep my mind in the room; I needed to face what the universe was sending me. The very thought of doing something that I knew would not make me happy was soul crushing. I finally knew the feeling of fulfilment and I was not willing to take a step backwards.

My Soul Self began to whisper. She reminded me that this is part of a greater purpose.

I couldn’t argue with her because I knew she was right; when you know more it becomes hard to fight back. I had to surrender to the unknown.

Each of us have different priorities, some of us search for a relationship, a job, a religion, etc…

 

I was searching for the feeling of freedom.


The freedom to talk, to be creative, to be who I am. I didn’t want to be couped up, I didn’t want to be held down; I knew what it felt like for my voice to be taken away and one thing I know for sure, is that I will never let that happen again.

 

Listen to the sensations in your body, listen to what your body is telling you; listen to your Soul Self, he/she is honest, your mirror, your comforter, your voice, your thoughts and your voice.

 

Listen…

Peace & love,

Mikaela
