#selfenquiry

MOST RECENT

What do you do when all the busyness goes away?
.
.
.
.
When there’s nothing to distract you...
.
from yourself?
.
When you want to escape,
.
but everywhere you go,
.
there you are..
.
.
.
When you’re on the path of intention...
.
when you want to scrape away all the distraction to reveal something real..
.
.
Perhaps even the real deal,
.
.
and all that’s there,
.
.
is you.....?
.
.

It can be disappointing...
.
Or ordinary...
.
Or boring...
.
Or whatever way you see yourself...
.
.
.
Or you can surrender to whatever is there...
.
.
.
You,
.
and the sunset,
.
and the fields,
.
and the crisp air,
.
and your shallow breath...
.
wondering what’s next...
.
.
.

The idea is to turn the attention inwards.. Right! #selfenquiry The question " Who am I?" Is not really meant to find an answer , The question "Who am I?" Is meant to dissolve the questioner.

In my teaching at the moment I am really trying to express the importance of yoga being an experience to deepen self enquiry. To not attach a judgement or feeling to where the mind, body or breath is at in the moment but simply to be present to experience it. To always come back to the breath, when we lose our way the breath will guide us back home. Really how the shapes we are making with our body are perceived externally is irrelevant but the deep connection we are making internally is what this process is all about. We need not critique ourselves or strive to be somewhere “ahead” of where we are. But be whole and complete exactly where we are in this moment. We begin to find that what we discover on the mat begins to beautifully leach out into our lives and we deeply connect to our intuition and our divine innate spirit. ❤️❤️ #amandacurmiofferings #yoga #hatha #yogateacher #yogalakemac #yogacentralcoast #selfenquiry #knowthyself

Day 16 of #PrepWithProps with @cyogalife ➡️ #pinchamayurasana the wall.
Warm ups felt amazing and attempted day 8's posture; dancer at the wall with noticable progress 😊. Shoulders could not be much tighter though 3rd pic; straight as a board 😂 .

Thought of the day :

As humans, our spiritual path is to resist our "bad" inclinations and to overcome our ego in order to move towards more inner peace and fulfillment.
Some talk about finding to our true nature/ True Self.

This morning, I observed my cat in a Zen posture, legs folded under him, like a Buddha. Suddenly a butterfly appeared and began to spin around him.
Temptation, temptation! Resist I told him! You have enough to eat, you do not need to catch this butterfly! And I saw my cat "hold on" until this incessant movement irritated him too much that it woke up his primary instinct.

And I told myself. Ok, we must overcome our bad tendencies, the temptation of the ego and separation. What if cats also had a spiritual path? That of resisting the temptation to kill ?!
Nevertheless, I have another cat whom every time she (yes it's a female ... I say that, I say nothing :-)) catches an insect brings it home and cries / meows . Until I come to see her and save the insect!
Higher in consciousness?

So with everything we see we can self inquire ;-). Will you resist the butterfly / ego which dances in front of you so that you act according to your primary instincts? :-) <3

You meet every part of yourself on the mat. Befriend your shadow and drop the stories and constructs about yourself.
Teaching tonight 630pm and 745pm 🖤

Let it be alive
Spirit of your faith will alway rise
Let it be alive
Life is motivation
Healing from the sun
Love planting seeds inside the hearts of everyone
Under the sun
Musical medicine
Musical medicine connect to eveything
Honeybees, trees, and the khakis
Honeybees, trees, and the khakis
The water, the Earth, the wind, and the fire
These are the elements living inside you
And the world that you see on the outside,
is a reflection of what's on the inside
So if you see something you don’t like,
Check in with your own life
.
Yeahhh
Stand up and move, time for action
Sit down but listen, time for reflection
Stand up and move, time for action
Sit down but listen, time for reflection
Reflection of perfection is the best medicinal prescripton ever written
This is it, we reach the point of infinite Redemption,
let it be our mission
Let us spread the message from the heavens, seas, the west, and all directions making
Wait for every nation in distress to make connections with the generations yet to come
.
Let it be alive, Let it be alive
Yeahhh
Spirit of your faith will always rise
Let it be alive, Let it
be alive
Yeahhh
Spirit of your faith will always rise
Whatever is coming through
Let it come to you
Whatever is coming through
Let it come to you.

Such a great yoga class with @zephyrwildman again at @triyogauk tonight! Always love what this lady has to offer in her classes! 💜

Tonight was all about listening to ourselves; to our physical bodies and to our thoughts and feelings. I loved the mantra I kept hearing of 'stay open and curious' - it so resonated with me as these last few weeks I've been doing just that.

An interesting sensation of inadequacy popped up within me during class, and I wouldn't have even noticed that if I'd not tuned in. Not that it has any meaning, but it was interesting to curiously notice! So, thank you lovely for a great class that fulfilled my self enquiry! 💜

What sensations and feelings are you noticing tonight people? 💞

Friendship, one of life’s great gifts! Friendship and social connections are linked to trust and open expression of emotions and feelings. To form long lasting intimate bonds with others, vulnerability is important. It lets others know that trust is present, and that there are common bonds of not only successes but also doubts, fears, and past mistakes. 🌺✨

Sometimes we don’t know there is another way until we stumble upon it randomly and then wonder ‘why didn’t I think of that before?’...
You didn’t think of it before because your mind was stuck in it’s old ingrained way of thinking - an old belief or idea about how things are or should be.
This was me recently when it came to sitting at my computer and getting things done. I had an idea that my best time was always in the morning and that I was too tired to concentrate in the afternoons. But recently I read something that completely contradicted this long held idea of mine. And because I challenged my thinking about whether my idea was really true, I started to find that I could focus in the afternoons and that actually between 2-5pm I’m really productive!
Such a simple example but had I not challenged my thinking when I read this, I would still be ‘limiting’ myself to only being productive in the mornings 😬

This is the reality of what daily practice looks like with kids! Yep no fancy yoga tights, hair undone, in my pjs! ( fancy huh!), lots of wiggling cuddles and a special helper to blow out the candles!! But I surrender to this beautiful time and space in my life, the service of motherhood and all that it requires. Whilst I learn, I am teaching them and mostly they are now aware that this is apart of daily ritual. For me even if just a few moments of self enquiry, of connection to my essence I find I set myself up for the day. Self care is not so much about massages and treatments but about investing in the self, moment to moment, piece by piece to feel whole, complete and restored ❤️ #teachingthemtochasethesun #unschool #selfdirectededucation #unschooling #homeschoolaustralia #meditation #mamadiaries #selfenquiry #practicewhatyoupreach #education #heartcenteredlearning

This weeks Audio Book is brilliant!! I highly recommend it for anyone that wants to understand themselves better. Self enquiry is the precursor to self discovery & self acceptance which is where healing resides & self love exhausts. 💗www.garnierhypnotherapyandbeauty.co.uk #selfenquiry #seldiscovery #selfacceptance #selflove #healing #transformation #spirituality #personalgrowth #selfdevelopment #mindset #mindbodysoul #lovenotfear #love

There is nothing to be learnt from sitting in the bliss of perfection, or pretending to know all the answers. I’ve only grown stronger by learning how to return from the chaos, by asking the difficult questions.
