To help inspire you in being daring and courageous enough to ask yourself to change some of your habits that, even if they are not the most healthy, they have been with you for a long, long time.
So, it is hard to imagine letting them go…much less releasing your attachment to a habit with noting to put in its place~ ugh, why, why Spring must we cleanse?? Well, because you’re getting clogged and that just won’t feel good as time goes on. Come on now, you know it is time…write a letter to inspire yourself…that is what I did:
Alrighty now cleansing Kathryn (and pals).. if you have not really started… start today! 🙂
It seems that in our life, along the way, we forget to listen to ourselves. There is a cellular intelligence that is constantly sending us messages and we are often too busy to listen. There is also, according to Samkhya philosophy, a cosmic intelligence which is guiding us and supporting us at all moments. We often feel separate from this source and thus alone, and at times, lost in our lives.
Sitting still offers us a way to begin to “hear” again. Sometimes, there is no “land line” or sutra (thread), or so it feels, and we cannot make out any messages. This is when yoga and pranayama are most helpful. The movements of yoga help to uncover those lines of communication within ourselves that we have buried so deeply, often due to lack of use.
You have all the knowledge you need to fully express your bliss. It sounds corny, but it is true. It is my hope that this cleanse will uncover your “land line”, help you thread the path between body and soul, so you remember, you hear, you feel the love that pulses within you and all around you at all times.
Stands for all things,
Even for those things that don’t flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;
Though sometimes it is necessary
to re-teach a thing its loveliness,
To put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and re-tell it in words and in touch
that it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing;

Now, let’s get out there and start letting go of some habits… well, after a bite of dark chocolate first:-)
After all this is just the pre-cleanse, right??
