this feels good...it feels right to be back here and blogging...i shall just ignore the whole google world domination thing and wend on my own sweet merry way.
well, back 'over there' i mentioned boho moms post about the power word for this year and i said back then that i would blog about mine..
i have been thinking it over and my power word for this year is
it may seem funny to ascribe this as a power word but to me yoga means a whole lot more...the definition in the free online dictionary tells us...
n (often capital)
1. (Philosophy) (Non-Christian Religions / Hinduism) a Hindu system of philosophy aiming at the mystical union of the self with the Supreme Being in a state of complete awareness and tranquillity through certain physical and mental exercises
2. (Philosophy) any method by which such awareness and tranquillity are attained, esp a course of related exercises and postures designed to promote physical and spiritual well being
see where i am coming from here?
its not just about the physical exercise but it is the head-space that yoga puts me in that is important and so 'yoga' as my power word encompasses so much more.
once again i have let my yoga practise lapse...its easy to do when i am feeling physically very low, when my whole body is totally exhausted and everything hurts nothing in this world can make me do anything other than just 'be' and surf through the pain and exhaustion until i reach the other side.
when i reach the other side the pain and exhaustion is still with me, it never goes away, but it eases to the point i can focus on other things, the things that bring me joy and yoga is one of them.
even if the limits of my system only allows me to do a few yoga positions on some days that is enough for the good it does for me mentally.
and its the mental aspect that is a big part of it being my power word...
spiritual well being
i have had all of these in dribs and drabs but i so want to have them all with me at the same time...i want to feel and be so elated that i carry it with me all of the time...and that maybe this feeling will surround me in a aura that its affects those i come into contact with.
since the winter solstice and my experience at stonehenge and my initiation, mentally i have been buzzing...on such a high. in fact my mind is such that i have been finding it difficult to put things down into words or images.
even now, writing this there is so much i want to write but it is being oh so elusive...that 'tip of the tongue' thing...all i am getting are images...
i wish i could put these images into words...
