Do you ever feel like The Grinch at the holidays? Like everyone is spending too much effort on being commercial and not enough time being authentic? I get annoyed at the lack of family time and how, just because it’s getting cooler out, we all seem to get less active.
This past weekend I did a Restorative Yoga training with NETA as I continue to work toward my official 200RYT. As we did a Yoga Nidra during the practice we came to an “I” statement. I focused on my disappointment. It’s a common thread in my life that I wish I could change. I am disappointed in a lot of things, but can I find the opposite of that? What is the opposite of that? Is it acceptance or happiness? How do I let that dissolve into my heart and let the heart change that disappointment into gratitude?
I have been using a meditation app for awhile now and this morning I did a short Sanskrit chant meditation for the heart by Singers 3nity Brothers and presented by Gaia Meditation. My goal in choosing this particular meditation was to open my heart chakra. I don’t want to be The Grinch right now. I want to find a center, an acceptance, a happiness, a presence….a different kind of green.
How are you feeling about the holidays?
