The holidays are spent reflecting fondly of memories made, cherishing relationships old and new, and celebrating with our loved ones. And while we are grateful for the many blessings of our past, we can’t help but to be excited about welcoming new experiences, lessons, and adventures as we approach the new year. Amidst our gatherings and parties, we often find ourselves strategizing in ways to make the next year even better than the last. The truth is that it’s much easier than one would think. You can manifest greatness by calling upon your inner yogi super power!
Let go & envision the future
To tap into our greatest potential, we must first practice the art of letting go in order to remove obstacles and give ourselves the freedom to move forward with clarity. There are many ways in which to do this. Learn more here and/or join Carolyn Royce for SURYA 108; a celebration of movement, where we will flow through a mindful Puja prayer ritual to rid ourselves of stale thought patterns and shed weight that no longer serves us. Because when we are no longer distracted and preoccupied with being unconscious within our lives, we have the ability to envision with total clarity the life we intend to live. It is within this clarity that one is able to begin to listen to the heart's deepest desires and bring them to fruition, harnessing our inner yogic super power.
As we move from unconscious living to intentional practices (in Raja yoga this is the eight-limbed path), we individually take responsibility for our thoughts, words, and actions and step into a life of intention, where we are able to cultivate consciousness. In living consciously, or with clarity, we are able to devote our whole Self to a clear connection with our truth. This ability to be clear and connected to the Self might be the most powerful gift of a yoga practice. We start to develop a conscious relationship to our creative energies, and begin to manifest the life we wish for ourselves.
Stay inspired and dedicated
In 2019 let us inspire one another to take time for our daily practices to continue to live consciously. Start your new year off by completing the 30-Day Yoga Challenge! Maybe you want to challenge yourself by taking on new endeavors and join Logan Wagenseller for her Inversion Workshop. Or perhaps get back to the basics and enroll in the Yoga FUNdamental class series. Invite a friend or family member to join you on the journey so they can also tap into their own super powers.
Recommit with the purest and most sincere heart to your practice. And most of all, rest assured that your dedication brings with it the most unexpected and interesting gifts to you and to all beings your energy touches. Perhaps you will see your own super hero power rise to the surface, and the very dream that lies dormant within your heart now will find a clear path to manifest.
