This morning I felt such heavy energy as a nation mourning the cultural loss of Robin Williams, yesterday morning I felt the heavy energy watching the turmoil and sadness of the situation in Israel, Palestine, Iraq and news of the shooting of Michael Brown. When I begin my day with the news I can feel the darkness creeping up within me, like an oil spill over my heart. Thick, dark and heavy the weight of it spills out of my eyes and tears flow as the oil turns to a salty cleansing release.
For me the tears are not enough. The emotional release feels good. However, my body is still thick and heavy with this dark oily weight deep within. I step onto my mat and root thru the depth of the earth as I join my teacher Shiva Rea in our Sringara Rasa Sadhana.
Yoga is my gateway drug to peace.
When I escape I go deep within myself, closing my eyes and swimming thru the dark waters of my mind aware how every ripple of breath offers a shimmer of light. As though I could touch this glistening translucent place within myself. I leave an imprint of each moment, each breath, each flowing asana I observe the simmer beginning to glisten, then glow...I am igniting the darkness within myself.
Only in Sahaja (free flowing movement) I create a deep release of darkness and sadness. When I open the gateways of my body I open the walls around my heart. When I flow with the freedom around me I notice the light within myself. No matter what your movement alchemy is (running, swimming, dancing, love making....) go there, be there...let that be your gateway to inner peace, light and flowing bliss.
