I START MY YOGA TEACHER TRAINING JOURNEY TONIGHT!! I am so proud of myself for finally following my own path and choosing to do something that is calling my soul instead of doing what society expects of me. I have spent so much time worrying about my career and if it will live up to peopleโ€™s expectations that I have ignored my inner voice and my purpose.
Here is my first essay entitled โ€œWhat is Yoga and Why Do I Practice Yogaโ€

Morning yoga + campfire = pure bliss ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒž
I keep surprising myself with my yoga progress, especially with handstands. Did a quick warmup before this and then just popped up into this on the first try ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ #yogaprogress #yogaeverydamnday #yogalove #yogajourney #naturetherapy #handstandpractice #yogini #coloradoyogi #getupsidedown

I speak a lot about being an empath because it is the part of my personality that probably affects my life the most. I believe that a lot of my anxiety stems from my sensitivity to energies, and often I even feel this on a global scale. Iโ€™m not exactly sure why I am this way, but I feel like it is intertwined with my purpose in life. The world is hurting, badly. There is so much unconscious and suppressed trauma that is begging to be processed and released. That is why I am pretty introverted; it can be difficult and stressful for me to even go to the grocery store. It makes life hard sometimes. I watch people enjoy things like concerts, and while sometimes I am able to focus purely on the music, it can be hard for me to feel the energy of thousands of people around me, a lot of them blocking out their internal struggles with drugs and alcohol. This weekend I had a breakthrough sitting by the creek and watching the water flow over the rocks. I often resist the crazy amount of feelings that I receive, which in turn creates anxiety as these energies build. I was watching the water flow so effortlessly, letting the kinetic energy take it down the mountain, and something clicked. I feel like my anxiety is caused by the dam I have built to try to keep from feeling so much; it keeps the emotions from flowing naturally and they build and build until I freak out. And then I just cried hysterically for about an hour, processing so much all at once. It can be hard to be so sensitive in todayโ€™s masculine society where feelings are considered a weakness. It makes me feel like my intense emotions are invalid, yet I realized how important it is for me to continue to feel what I feel freely instead of letting it build up. These energies need a conduit and for some reason I feel like I was chosen to do just that. I know I canโ€™t heal the world of all itโ€™s trauma, but I feel like my purpose is to hold space for others so that they can heal and find inner peace through things like movement, meditation, and nature. Who knows where the future will take me, but I canโ€™t wait. I can feel my destiny. She is calling and I am ready.
