During our 3rd yoga session I felt how distracted I was and how this could be used to not feel my body as well as not be aware of what is even being said around me.
I recall as a child watching TV and being so consumed in the television that I would have no idea that someone was speaking to me...I couldn't hear a word. I feel a sadness with this as I know that I am taking myself away from me with this level of distraction and being checked out and I am becoming more aware of how harmful this is.
This week has been amazing and humbling for me with a few realisations about the sophisticated level of control that I have used throughout my life to distract and avoid what my deepest feelings are telling me. I realise I do have a choice and it is up to me to make that choice.
I have been able to feel all of this in my body as I bring a greater presence and loving attention to everything during my day. I was at work yesterday and felt the absolute exquisiteness of how I feel when I move and walk. The tender touch of my feet on the ground, the way I touched and spoke to people and how I moved with absolute grace through my day. It was so lovely to feel and even lovelier to acknowledge and truly appreciate how this is me.
As I keep connecting to this when I know there are things to work through, I identify and attach less with the issues and continue to feel that deep connection that I know I have with me and feel the absolute joy in my own presence. This to me is magic...
