Rolling solo. On Monday my godfather said I was one of those people who was in relationship with the Universe. A nice way of saying “perpetually single” I suppose. Single is pretty sweet, until it’s not.
It's mornings like these that I fall in love again. In love with this island and its staggering beauty. In love with this practice of yoga and its depths and nuance. In love with those who show up to connect to their bodies more deeply. In love with the endless potential for self discovery.
We live in a culture that clips our wings. It tells us the power, the magic, the possible is somewhere out there. . It disconnects us from our source and our truth in its attempts to contain us and make us the same.
I was 13 when hurricane Iniki hit Kauai. I lived in a house at the foot of the Sleeping Giant & watched the storm tear my neighborhood apart from my kitchen window. The island was ravaged & it's always been a wonder to me that not more than our roof was lost...
Sometimes I read the posts of others & think, "Oh, yes..." before the inner voice chimes in & says, "They have it all figured out. They can articulate, what I cannot." But the truth is, that is false. . .
Whatever noise is in your individual reality or our global world, turn down the volume by rooting yourself back into the fabric of existence, back into the wisdom of earth and sky, back into the #elemental pulse of embodied life. Turning toward your self, soul and center is a revolutionary act that puts the power of change back in your hands. .
Sometimes we just need space to reflect, review + re-vision. We need to disconnect to reconnect. We need to read something new to spark new connections + fresh inspiration. We need to melt into the moment with the sun on our skin + the breeze in our hair. We need to write down our prayers + in spontaneous ritual burn them as offering + release.
i know you're hungry for success, fulfillment, confidence, connection (defined on your terms of course). you want to bring your gifts forward and be recognized, acknowledged and appreciated. you want to stop operating in survival mode and tap into your capacity to thrive. but the question is always the same... how?
