Phew! It is a miracle I didn’t self implode prior to discovering yoga two months ago. On Wednesday, I walk the block before 6 am and pant until the mat slaps down and I lay my armor down. In keeping with my weekly intention to ALLOW myself, the phen-o-menal teacher today guided the class to just notice what certain poses evoked in us…and I allowed myself to FEEL. Not think, but feel. And this morning, the word “Powerful” turbulently shook me. Never felt that before…the simultaneous fear and peacefulness of my own power. In many ways, when I allow myself to feel and be powerful, anxiety flows…the fear I’ll make others uncomfortable, or that I’ll make a big mistake. How do I “make myself smaller” in attempt to placate others? How do you?
In the past few days, here is how I succeeded in allowing myself: YEAH! Got my new ADIDAS and used them immediately (I have a huge tendency to try to exaggerate my pleasure my delaying gratification…I was the kid with Halloween candy portioned out until Easter)! Ah, these Supernova’s Rock! Eat That PF! I cooked dessert for myself BEFORE dinner: A blueberry cobbler. It was so yummy! I allowed myself to LOWER my expectations for my goals for the day.
