Diving deep, where are you my fears?

go to the edge

I am now wondering where my fears are, going off the edge to find them in myself, in the depth of who I am. If I am bold enough and I don't turn back, I will be able to renew my patterns. This action will set me free.

In the dark shadows, I imagine I will sail through my depths as if a dream and find the silence I need and have searched for all my life. I know that the best stuff is at the very bottom.

gems and secrets are beacons

More conspicuous and offset against the darkness, the gems and secrets are easier to see and feel. Sometimes they shine with luminosity like a beacon, with my name on them!

The bottom must be a bed of soft sand which I can dig my bare feet into and feel rooted, maybe for the first time. The ground of my soul. To touch this part of me is to release all that I previously imagined was hidden.

Transforming itself, no longer in the dark, I will invite it to be a part of my waking life.

freedom lies in our minds and bodies

Freedom lies in acknowledging the places that scare us most. We hold those fears not only in our unconscious minds; they show up in our bodies.

I isolate what manifests of my fears, disguised with a guarded tension. As an instinctual animal, I will shake them off to get them out of me.

I will not let the ailments which arise define who I am. My blood, or my chi, should move freely and uninhibited as it bathes me with its life force.

Yoga and meditation help me. Yoga nidra is a guided visualization that takes one into the state of "wakeful" deep sleep. In this sleep-like state, I relax, dream, sleep and be yoga. 

Inspired by freediver Guillaume Nery and an amazing yoga class by Eric Monkhouse.
