Happy Spring! Happy New Moon! Happy Solar Eclipse!
Today, Friday, March 20th, we experience a new moon, entry into the spring season and a super powerful solar eclipse all at the same time. As you can probably ascertain, this is a powerful time for both the universe and for YOU!
A time to inquire within.
A time to renew your vibrant spirit.
A time to manifest your most exuberant life.
Coincidentally, I had the privilege of spending the last four days in the mountains to do exactly that. And I promise, it was a complete coincidence.
At the beginning of this year, I was thrown into some unexpected transition. I felt lost, disappointed and confused as to what was next for me. The life that I imagined was abruptly stripped from me and I was left pondering so many aspects of my life:
Should I switch careers or industries? Can I still teach yoga? How can I leverage my MBA and my previous experience? Do I stay in CO or should I move home to NY? How can I contribute to my community yet also serve my family, friends & loved ones?
Now, these questions are more rhetorical than anything. Since I’m only in year one of my thirties, I would imagine they might stay unanswered for a while. But, that is OK with me because I am comfortable with self-inquiry and personal development.
So, what might not come as a surprise to most of you, I took full advantage of my time away.
I needed to take time for myself so that I could be prepared to serve both in my new and existing roles and also be ready to serve the community of those around me in a more profound and present way.
For health and sustainability…I ran. I practiced yoga. I skied. I hiked. I cooked delicious and nutritious food. I drank lemon water, coffee AND wine. I slept. Balance is everything!
For reflection… I built a fire. I wrote. I brainstormed new concepts for my yoga business. I mulled over the question “What do you really want?” I made a vision board for the rest of 2015.
For continuous improvement… I read. I created yoga sequences. I designed workshops. I watched business webinars.
I went into this week with an intention to live my yoga and I tried my best to do exactly that. And I intend to move forward with that same intention. To stay on this path of supporting myself first so that I can truly be the most vibrant version of myself to everybody I encounter.
The equinox is a time to restart and renew; to create intentions around growth and to honor opportunities for improvement so please take time to honor this time of reflection.
Meditate. Journal. Hike. Get a Massage. Take a Bath. Vision Board.
Manifest your destiny. The time is now!
