Acknowledge All Your Feelings

My last posting discussed feeling your body in relation to environment, others and your space on your yoga mat.  In every situation, your body speaks to you through feelings, good and bad.  Feelings can be strong, weak or subtle.  They can be physical, emotional and often come out of left field.

Learn to honor all of them –pain, awkwardness, tension, happiness, sadness, bliss.  All feelings are opportunities to grow.  With growth we experience new feelings, new ways of being and in turn, live life to its fullest.

If you shut out feelings, you miss out.  Ignoring your feelings, just buries them inside of you.  One day, when you least expect it, they will come bursting out.  Remember, what you resist persist.  By ignoring them, you numb yourself to what your life has to offer.

To live life to its fullest, we must learn to recognize and accept all it has to offer, no matter how it makes us feel.  Feel all that you can and you’ll be all that you are meant to be.
