When we think about or hear the word “core” we often think about our front six-pack area. But, it is also our mid to lower back, which is just as important to keep strong. And, it is everything inside that area, which is the majority of our digestive system. When we relate this to our life, it brings to light that what we put in us and what is behind us, our past, is very significant in how we stand, move forward and area able to face what is in front of us. No matter what your past involved, let it be part of your strength for your future, not a weakness, by releasing the toxicity and keeping the vitality.
Mindfulness: Transformation is constant because it is a result of change, and change is the only guarantee in life. Without change, there is no life; therefore, whatever transformation you are about to embark on, make it part of the twists and twirls and swirl it into the dance of your life. Make this transformation part of your forever dance.
Welcome 20 Days of 20-20 Yoga and Meditation for Transformation!
It’s been 20 years since the new millennium. Where were you at the beginning of 2000? Who were you? What were you doing? What did you hope for? What dreams came true?
Change is inevitable, so let’s transform with intention.
On this 20 day journey, no matter what your ultimate goal or resolution is, you will also be creating new and healthy habits and removing toxins and blockages – both in your life and your body. As you grow and move towards your goal, you will slowly uncover – and come to know – your true essence, which is who you are and what you require to be your best self. Once you know your essence and your true purpose, you can use it as a compass, so that no matter what you are doing, you will be able to fall in love with life each day and live in peaceful joy and contentment.
We have arrived! I am so excited that you are joining me for this 20 days of transformation. I will be joining you and look forward to hearing from you either via email or on Facebook or Instagram. This is an example of how each day will unfold with Mindfulness, Movement and Meditation. There will also be a YouTube video embedded each day with the day’s yoga and meditation. I hope you will share this link or practice each day with your friends and family or your team so that they too can join in on the 20 day transformation and you can all grow together: http://www.7seedsmagazine.ca/category/20-20-yoga-meditation-for-transformation/.
Mindfulness: Have you ever heard the parable of the men who were moving to a new village? Each one went to a wiseman to ask if he would be happy in his hew place. The wiseman asked the first man if he was happy in the village he lived in now. The man’s response was that he was not happy and the people were terrible. The wiseman told him he would not be happy in his new village. The second man was asked the same question and his response was that he was very happy in his old village and that the people were wonderful and he had many friends. The wiseman told him he would be very happy in his new village.
It is not possible to get to mid-life and not have experienced some sort of trauma; whether that be physical, emotional or mental. That is what makes us perfectly human. Exercise is proven to be medicinal for healing, but some disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – or a recovery of any kind, often requires times of less intensity and more gentleness.
On the path towards our dreams sometimes we must reconnect. The word stray is a significant word on this journey to our dreams. One of its synonyms is isolate, which is very telling as to what happens when we are lost in life. When one has wandered too far in a wrong direction there is a loss of connection with one’s self, others and the Universe – with God. Isolation leaves us vulnerable to become preyed upon and fall victim. And it can occur in any aspect of wellness.
