How will you emerge?
As we enter week 5 of quarantine I feel this deep desire to move forward. It has felt like so much has been put on hold because we just don’t know what the future holds. I don’t exactly know what moving forward looks like. There is so much that is still unknown and uncertain.
This time to pause has led to some deep self-reflection. This is, of course, an integral part of the yogic path known as svadhyaya.
Through this self-inquiry there have been many questions. What has been working in my life? What hasn’t? Am I ready to take the steps necessary to shift what isn’t working and design the life that I truly desire?
I am beginning to visualize a new way of being for myself, and hopefully for the collective. I am hopeful. I am hopeful that I can make choices moving forward that are more aligned with my values of compassion and justice. Choices that allow me to thrive in all parts of my life...my work, my relationships to others and to myself, my connection to source, my physical health and wellbeing. I am hopeful that I can choose to stay deeply committed to growth and evolution. A commitment to awaken all parts of myself.
In this moment of hopefulness there is the knowing that this current aberration will come to an end. There will be loss. There will be pain. There will be grief. And...it will pass.
When it does end, how will you emerge?
What was will never be the same. There is sadness in the loss of what was. And there is possibility.
Is the life you were living the one you want to return to? Or do you have a bigger vision for your life?
We have been given this time of a collective pause. A chance to hit the reset button.
How do you want to emerge from this crisis?
Let's connect. Schedule a discovery call with me and we can chat about your deeper desires for this life, what shifts you are ready to make as we emerge from this moment.

Do the work to get resourced. Practice self-care. Rest when you need to. But, it can't stop there. Find a teacher, a therapist, a mentor, a coach and dive into the work of untangling the traumas, beliefs, ideas, prejudices and attitudes that are harmful to yourself and others. We cannot simply point our fingers at everyone else. It starts with me. It starts with you.

The question I am attempting to address here is how we can create resilience and build our body’s capacity to adapt to these changes and manage these big and often uncomfortable emotions without falling apart.

We can use the tools of both yoga and ayurveda to support the digestive process by stoking the flame of agni that is often times represented as living at the solar plexus. Agni governs our metabolism, digestion, absorption and assimilation and its job is to turn our food into energy and bodily tissue.
