~ you are what you eat ~
I thought I’d understood this, but the past 10 days have shown me there is much more to what I eat than I realized. Due to some reading I’d done recently I chose to eat mostly leafy greens for 21 days. Once a day, I have cooked vegetables or maybe some soup, some nuts and seeds, but otherwise everything I've had is fresh and green.
My most important experience so far is that I realized I am eating sunlight. Or as close to sunlight as a human can get. Just the plant converting light to chlorophyll and cellulose. Nothing in between. No processing, no addition or subtraction. Sunlight. And I’ve eaten it up. I became this light. I felt it. Thought with it. Made of light, with less and less in the way.
Then, having this revelation, I started to notice a craving for my past, known self. As if this was a grand bright, light trip, but where was the comfort of my dark, heavy, inertia that felt like home?
I often teach “Don’t go back. Don’t go back to the way you came.” We work and move and breathe and pray and find such light in our souls during our practice. Then we stop and are tempted - oh so tempted - to slowly sink back into the weight of our previous ways. Our heart falls a bit, our head dips down, our spine slumps and our sense of our ordinary, everyday limitations returns. Somehow it feels like home.
Instead, build the muscle of light with me. Build the light and then stay - as long as you can, as much as you like, but savour it. Stay elevated.
Tony Robbins teaches that we are addicted to our problems. We respect them, polish them, share them, spend our money and time to respond to them. I can feel now, with this ‘food as light’ experience, that I’m ready to invest in my light. To revel in it, explore it, share it out, and make more.
Consider your neutral state. This neutrality can shift. You can have a higher frequency. Keep exploring. Sensations of deep gratitude, compassion, and joy elevate our brainwaves and the electromagnetism of our hearts. When you cultivate those sensations, you shift your state. You feel your frequency change.
Then tune in to the choices of your day that support that state. Keep refining. Choice by choice. Notice when you want to go back. That’s okay too. But know its a choice. You can keep it or change it. We are more malleable than we know.
In class this month we move from Burdened to Emboldened and we cultivate these higher states. Come try. Join in. Or try it out at home on YouTube as ever. See you there xxx
Oil blend this month is always available at the front of class for you to try and to use. If you would like to buy your own blend, let me know I always make extra. $10 for 10 ml roller bottle. Grapefruit, bergamot, ylang ylang. The oils continue that emboldened state even after we are off our mat. Imagine being able to roll your practice on at a moment’s notice. Pretty great.
Open House for the Power of Prana spring 2018 training is SUNDAY FEB 18, 9:30 am at Federal Hill. Right after our Sunday morning class. Bring a friend, come ask questions, get some details that might make all the difference.
If you can’t get there in person, there will be a FaceBook Live video on FRIDAY FEB 23 NOON. You can watch live and type in questions. Or you can watch the recording later. There is one there already from a FB Live of last friday. Take a look if you like. Would love to have you there!
