This weekend I was chatting with friends about the growth I’ve experienced through my new found love of Kundalini yoga.
As with any new yoga class you need to become familiar with the moves and learn how the class flows. I found my way pretty easy and loved that the movements didn’t focus too much on form.
Kundalini is vibrational. Most of the movements are simple, yet mentally challenging. There were moments when I felt like I had elephants sitting on my arms. I REALLY wanted to lower my arms. But I hung with it and got through to the other side.
By my third class I felt something stirring inside me. I was taken completely by surprise when tears began flowing down my face. Hmmm…what was this? I thought it was the beauty of the chanting and the music. I get mushy when surrounded by beauty, so I left it at that.
Class number four…what is coming out here? Wow, buried emotions that were lying dormant for over thirty years. Emotions I thought I had dealt with years ago, but no…apparently not done!
Class five and six…same incident but the feelings and sadness were intensified. These feelings from my late teens were screaming at me. I WANT TO BE HEARD!
So I let them out. I stood in front of 30 people and told them all about this part of my life. Speaking my truth aloud seemed like an out-of-body experience. There I was wailing in front of the group. The tears that would not stop flowing…you the old “ugly cry” Oprah used to talk about. I was heavy with emotions of all types: shame, guilt, amazing relief, and understanding of my younger self.
I’m sure you’ve made a few dumb moves and/or had bad things happen to you in your life. Things that you haven’t or don’t want to talk about, but healing occurs when you voice your pain.
Opening your heart and speaking your truth isn’t easy. But if you truly want to awaken to your full potential and live with the awareness that you are an unlimited human being who is capable of greatness, you need to learn to deeply listen to your inner thoughts and former pain.
My friends this weekend laughed that they weren’t up for letting their emotions stir. They decided to leave them where they are for now!
As you know there is a time and a place for everything. If you are ready to open your heart and get to a place where life opens up for you please contact me by clicking here.
Growth only occurs by taking action. The rewards and benefits are many. I really want you to feel the freedom I have in my heart!
I look forward to stirring up whatever else is lying dormant. I encourage you to do the same. Because the more you clear the happier you’ll be.
There is no time like the present to feel fabulous and free!
