Yoga on a mountain top – In my mind thats where I am….well either there or on the beach 🙂 I put myself, in a place of peace, creating a sense of serenity. Hearing the ocean waves gently rolling in, with the sun heating up my skin. Or feeling like the majestic tree, strong but flexible, bending with the wind. I keep my eyes closed, and see myself doing a sun-salutation, sweeping my arms up filled with joy. Then pausing at the end with hands placed together, then lowered until they are centered over my heart. Here, I reflect on thoughts of all I have to be grateful for, while still feeling a joyful heart. When I open my eyes, I feel a sense of peace.
I’ve been doing this years before I ever started physically taking yoga, and it’s my reminder to you, that we have everything we need to be happy. Find your place of peace.
Just a thought…
About a year ago I had a dream that I was alone on the beach, and felt a deep sense of joy an peace. I was walking with the waves to my left and the shore to my right. My footsteps hit where the ocean met the sand, with my feet occasionally getting wet, by the still warm waters running in with the waves. The sun sparkled on the water, but it wasn’t so bright to be blinding, just a beautiful glistening. I looked down to where my next step would land, and I noticed a different shimmer. So I stopped to investigate. The next waves white foam receded back to the ocean, revealing parts of a gold chain and pendant encrusted with rubies. The rest was hidden by the sand, but I knew there was more. I couldn’t believe my good fortune – that no one else had seen this.
Today I went for a walk on the beach, and it was so much like my dream, that I kept looking for the treasure – ” just knowing” that it would appear. As I walked, and walked, and walked, I realized the treasure was… the beautiful day, the warm water, the serenity and peacefulness of being alone on the beach. With the luxury of being able to see and feel it all. I couldn’t believe my good fortune. 🙂 and I reminded myself on this week of Gratitude and Thanksgiving, of all we have to be thankful for. Everything is right in front of our us – We have it now! So much to be grateful for! Look for it, it’s all around!
