I was out with a mate shopping at Home Depot, getting supplies for her yoga studio. We didn't find what we needed and left. About 4 hours later she realizes that she forgot her purse in Home Depot. "I can remember now where I set it down she said".
She was not concerned about the purse. It's what's inside the purse that had her worried. The wallet. In fact it goes deeper; she wasn't concerned about the wallet, but what's inside the wallet. Her money, credit cards and ID.
ON THE MAT
Imagine if we were so concerned about OURSELVES like that. We can get so worried about the purse, the outside. How we look, how we fit in, or what others think of us. We can quickly disconnect from who we are and who we can be.
Each and every time we step on the mat we are invited to go inside the purse. Everything you need, you already have. You are powerful beyond measure, So let's take our 60mins together today and dive inside. Peel another layer and dive into our wallets. Let's connect to our real value.
As we moved, we took many meditation moments. Small acts of tuning in, so we didn't tune out.
OFF THE MAT
It's pretty hard not to think about our 'outside' (the purse). We are assaulted with visual stimuli all day long that try's to tell us our lives will be better off if you wear the right clothes, if you live in the right neighbourhood, or if you have the right body type. You are not valuable "if".
Remove "If" and remember that you are valuable.
It's marketing. That's all it is. You do not lack anything. So tune in and DO YOU.
