Thoughts from Vintage Yoga...

Coming Back to "Why?"

Two weeks ago, I asked you to consider why one might embark upon a journey of exploration into something like the chakra system. Have you given it any thought? I’ve been thinking about it quite a bit myself since I wrote that.

I found myself wondering if people reading this might think that I’m unhappy. (I’m still working on not worrying about what other people think…) The good news is I am not unhappy! I have a great life! What’s not to love and be happy about? I live in one of the most amazing places in the world, full of history, beauty, great food and more. And even better, I get to share this life with a man who is kind and loving, funny and adventurous, and who has inspired me to be my best self!

Happiness is an interesting thing. Despite all the goodness in my life, there are times when I feel like there’s something missing, a void that is just beyond my perception. And so, in this next part of my journey, I am hoping to DISCOVER what’s missing. I’m looking at this next adventure as a personal experiment. If I were to write a thesis statement for this journey it might read something like this:

"The integration of the chakra system, yoga practices, mudras, and breathwork not only fosters physical and mental well-being but also plays a pivotal role in enhancing overall happiness by promoting self-awareness, balance, and a harmonious connection between mind, body, and spirit."

By the end of this journey, I expect to have a greater understanding of how self-awareness affects my overall happiness and well-being and how to maintain that balance. That is what I hope you will DISCOVER too.

If you are just beginning your journey, I invite you to check out my signature program called DISCOVER. It’s a four-part program in which I take you through the steps I took when I first began my own journey of self-discovery about seven years ago. DISCOVER takes you through the process of DISCOVERing the things that might be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling life. Once you’ve identified these things, I provide strategies to help you overcome those obstacles. I’m currently in the process of making this an online course that you can take on your own any time. You’ll be hearing more about that when it’s ready to launch!

As I mentioned, DISCOVER was just the beginning of my journey. I’ve come to realize the journey continues. Each part of the trip fuels something new and curious. The work I did in the beginning gave me the desire to continue the journey. That’s how I ended up on My Self-Love Journey last year, which led me to this next phase of growth. The one thing I’ve DISCOVERed is that none of the work I’ve done has been without value, and each adventure has led me to something new that has helped me grow more and more. That’s what I’m expecting from The Healing Journey into the chakra system, to grow more and more.

So again, I ask you to reflect on why you are considering this next venture with me. What do you want to get out of it? In what way do you expect to grow? If you’re not sure, that’s OK too! Because I’m sure that one way or another, just like me, you’re going to come out at the end changed.

Take time today or this week to write down your thoughts about what you’d like to experience. Writing about it might reveal your “why?” Remember, there’s no commitment to me on your part, I’m just happy that you’re here and I’m hoping you and I benefit from this work which begins next Tuesday, February 6, 2024!

As always, With Love & Gratitude,
