Nightly Review

Last week I reintroduced the practice of writing a nightly review to highlight key points of my day. In the past I have found that putting pen to paper and acknowledging daily behavior can be very beneficial for spiritual growth ✍🏼. Every night I ask myself if there was any time during my day I became resentful, selfish, dishonest, or afraid. If anything comes up, I write it down. From there, I am able to thoughtfully recognize if I owe an apology to anybody 🙇🏼‍♂️. By doing this practice daily it becomes easier to see if I have been kind and loving towards all, or if I have been mostly thinking of myself ⚖️. With the purpose of spiritual growth in mind, I ask myself if there is anything I could have done better 🤔. Did anything come up that I have kept to myself, which ought to be shared? Lastly, what acts of service did I selflessly perform today which contributed to the stream of life? By acknowledging these behaviors daily it has become easier to see where I have made progress and where I have fallen short. As with all spiritual practice, this daily inventory aims to clear any emotional blockages which may stand in the way of being able to help others 🌎. May all beings be happy, may all beings be free 💓. Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu 🕊.

Stay In Grace

How did I turn my life around? Well, I had to change EVERYTHING… The things that I did, the places I went, and the people I spent my time with. For me this meant no longer consuming alcohol, creating healthier habits, and surrounding myself with people on the path of inspiration 🧘🏼‍♂️. This is what 955 days of grace and hard fucking work looks like 🔺. Life is way too short to spend another day at war with yourself. If you want light to come in to your life, you gotta stand where it is shining 💡#nationalrecoverymonth

Turning On Your Inner Fire

Foot-behind-the-head postures have always been intriguing to me. These postures target the hips and groins while also stretching the back and strengthening the abdomen. Foot-behind-the-head postures help aid with digestion by turning on your inner fire 🔥. This fire is related to the 3rd chakra, which is located just behind the naval region below the rib cage 💛. Postures like #ekapadasirsasana#dwipadasirsasana, and #kurmasana demand patience in the beginning, but with consistent practice you will develop the flexibility and strength to breathe and relax in the yoga pose.
