The Art Of Living

art of living

“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.” ~Havelock Ellis

I had an amazing yoga therapy session today.  So many unexpected happenings presented themselves as my therapist dug deeper into my emotions, spirit & body.  I went in with an injured frozen shoulder and came out with a warm heart.  We do carry our feminine energy on our left side which happens to be the side of my body that is aching…the ache is much more than physical pain, however, it carries a boatload of emotion too.  My boat is empty.  Tapped.  Giving out so much nurturing energy that I haven’t taken the time to receive.  My shoulder is the messenger, it is up to me to receive that message and make change.

So many emotions naturally steamed up from my heart and out of my mouth.  Anger, resentments, internal control issues, leading to tears, release and laughter.  I was pleasantly surprised to feel the laughter as it was quite unexpected.  All the other emotions I had been feeling but when I really looked at the situations on a deeper level I realized just how funny life and people are.  Including me!

So What did I get out of this soul search?  An amazing cleansing for starters.  A whole new look at situations, people and life.  And…a new found understanding of forgiveness.  We all have a part in chaos in our lives, it’s up to us to own it and observe the drama from the sidelines. It really is quite funny to watch yourself!  No one is to blame for the situations we are in.  All actors in the play are merely reflections of your own mirror.  A glimpse into the light, dark and gray areas of your life.  Our desires and experiences complete with pains, sorrows, joys and thrills are all available to us to discover self.  Don’t waste it, accept it and run with the path you’re on.  It’s all yours to travel.

The time has come for me to receive again.  Open myself up enough to trust the process and allow the comforts in.  Allowing others to give and requesting a need when it arises.  Creating a balance…again.  Mixed with the masculine, I am divinely feminine.  I am whole.

*It has been an amazing year of healing since I wrote this original post.  So much can happen and enter your life in those quick 12 months, some are conscious choices, and some the universe throws you.  The mixture of both have renewed my left shoulder and I am happy to report it is healed, along with the rebirth of my feminine energy!  She is back in full force and ready to receive as well as give, combining the balance of my soul.  I am so grateful for the healers who have helped me along this path, especially my yoga therapist, chiropractor, massage therapist, and physical therapist.  I’m also grateful for my intuition for it brought me to these peaceful warriors, along with my decision to get back in the  pool.  Its own therapy unto itself.

Have a blessed day everyone, and remember, your healing all remains within you.   ~Namaste~
