As I sit to write and purge my feelings and thoughts into a much needed blog post, my family is cuddled up on the couch watching Paddington Bear on Netflix. We just spent the last couple hours digging trenches in solid ground, and clearing up the pool that accumilated in our basement from the backyard flowing down into the house. I can only imagine what it would have looked like had we not been home to catch it when we did. For this, I am so grateful.
I know we are home together because of the situation we are facing as a planet, and the heaviness of this is not lost on me. I feel what we are going through on such a deep level within my being as an empath, that some moments I can’t help but cry for us.
When this all first started to happen, I was feeling so unsure of what the future held (as many of us where and still are). I didn’t know if / how I would continue to work and teach. I didn’t know what to do as a small business owner, or as a person who feels called to share my passion and love for Health and Wellness. I just knew that everytime I started to worry, this gentle little child like voice would sing to me
“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, this little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.”
I knew I needed to surrender to Spirit, and allow the universe to guide me. I have to have faith that we will come through this, and if I let my light shine, all will be ok.
As the studios and community centers closed and I was left without a place to practice and share, I turned once again to spirit for help. Go ONLINE, simple and clear instructions. Not offering my classes was never an option, now more than ever we need selfcare, mediation and YOGA!! We need to move our bodies and care for each other, even if that is via the internet.
When I created the online community, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. If I am honest, this idea was something I have been wanting to do for over a year, but never had the courage to do so. But now is not the time to second guess, or be complacent. Now is the time to take action.
This community has grown faster than I could have ever imagined. People are showing up for classes and for themselves. People are sharing the community with friends and family who need it, and there is a far greater reach than I could have ever dreamed. Each time I show up to teach a class, I feel the collective energies. I know this place is my place to “let my light shine”. I feel the deepest sence of gratitude everytime I share to this group. I know in my heart this is what I was ment to do, and offer. It is how I can show up and serve my community.
Times are REALLY tough right now, I don’t deny that, but I know that if I can find a way to find a momnet of gratitude, all will eventially be ok.
Keep healthy, stay connected! And thank you so much for showing up!
