Inner Guidance

Along our Journey in life and training we may have many guides, yet more often it’s the guide within us, that knows the best way.

The only thing stopping us is learning to listen and trust in it. This too is part of our journey and other guides in our lives can help bring us to this point.

If you look back in your life there will be moments where you have had this inner guidance, guiding you to go somewhere or not go somewhere and when looking back it is always correct.

Those times we listen we know we made the right choice and the times we didn’t we may wish that we did. Yet this is a skill never too late to learn, some people call this guidance, our intuition or God within the heart.

It is our highest self and so always seeks to guide us to what is our highest and best yet the smaller thinking mind can get in the way with old conditioning, fears or bad habits. This is the small self that becomes quiet through spiritual practice and mediation. We then learn to listen deeper and trust in the true self within.

Some helpful ways to connect more with the higher self are;

  1. Meditation– when we clear the mind chatter, intuition naturally comes.
  2. Learn to trust in it and act upon it.
  3. Filter out external distractions and old conditioning by dropping what we don’t need. Less is more.

Trusting in our inner guide is a practice and process, until it becomes natural. Once we connect more however, we can be far surer we are on the right path 🙏

To your highest self,

The True meaning of Yoga

Yoga has become a fashion within health clubs nowadays but what exactly is the true purpose and meaning of yoga?

‘Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.’

~ The Bhagavad Gita

The true meaning of yoga is much more than physical image or even health, yet to describe it sounds much simpler. Most profound truths are paradoxical in this way.

The true meaning of yoga is literally ‘to yoke’ or ‘to connect’. At first this is with our breath throughout the whole practice within all asanas (postures) and relaxation/meditation.

The whole practice then becomes a form of meditation where we seek to unite with the breath and ultimately to our higher self/god, through a sequence of postures.

The way yoga has become misrepresented is unfortunate yet there are also some very good teachers out there too who bring forth its true meaning.

Always do your own research too and do your best to stay connected with your highest 🙏💗
