Fear, anxiety, and resistance to change all lead to worry. This can create a paralysis of the body holding one back in situations, not fully participating in this thing called “life”. Increasing your contact with the natural world is essential. Your body is the engine which takes you on this journey to meet your need to survive. Having the right for success, prosperity, time for yourself, pleasure, adventure, friends, and so for forth are all necessary to survive physically, emotionally, and even spiritually.
To do this we must pay attention to ourselves, our body, and let go of those holding patterns that paralyze us. How can we discover new oceans if we don’t leave the shore? Taking that first yoga class, initiating a new hobby or sport, going on an adventure are all great ways for the journey; liberation; letting go. The journey begins with one simple step.
My “Letting Go” story:
I began practicing yoga in 2013 after suffering for many years from many complicated physical ailments. My doctors then diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Within six months of doing yoga I noticed a tremendous change in my body. In 2015, a yoga teacher friend recommended I take yoga training classes. Even though I felt the desire to take one foundational training to make sure I was doing the poses safely, I hesitated. “What about the costs? How in the world am I going to last 10-hour days of training with all my pains? I can’t leave my husband, son, and dog for weekends around the United States? I’m afraid to be alone in the hotel at night?” Fear, anxiety, and worry were swallowing me into a black hole. Amazingly, with prayer and support from friends and family, I took that first step. To my amazement, one training gave me the confidence to take the next training, and the next one, until finally I completed all trainings becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher in 2018. It’s been a liberating adventure!
Do you have a “Letting Go” story you’d like to share? I’d love to know about it. 🙏
