In the now

Sometimes we just have to go with the flow! Yes we have to plan and have goals in order to achieve things in the future but we must not always be thinking about the future for if we do that we are missing the whole point of being here now. I was teaching yoga tonight and a couple of the girls were in a very different head space to how they usually are, some would say it was my job to bring them back to the usual space that they are in within my class but this was not the case tonight. I believe a good teacher needs to adjust in order to be there for class with whatever is happening within their life there and then. I am fortunate that tonight's class is a small close group but the whole lesson ended up being extremely deep and very beautiful. These girls are extremely fit (great bums) and enjoy a good sweaty yoga session but tonight it was not meant to be and for me it was wonderful for its that moment when the soul is wanting to quiet down and just be, not in the future, not in the past, in the now.

When your feeling out of balance just take a few deep breaths, breathe in through the nose and out, when you breathe in let the stomach expand like a balloon and when you exhale let all the air flow out, do this a few times and you will notice the mind will start to quiet down.

What i find great about this is when you surrender and actually stop and be, if there are things you want to find out or bring into your future, now is the time to silently affirm in a positive manner exactly what it is you would like to bring about. The great thing is you can affirm it in that quiet state and then the mind just lets it go, it float's away and you do not have to think about it anymore, you just let the magic happen.
