I will never tire from expressing how grateful I am for this human experience. This past year has been one of true surrender and transformation. How funny it is that I have spent every breathing moment of this life with myself, and yet I am still discovering who I am within each passing day. It has been so much fun getting to the roots of why I am the way that I am. Discovering the parts of me that I have been ashamed of and kept hidden in order to 'protect' myself from rejection and abandonment. Understanding that every form of self sabotage that I have ever done was my way of protecting myself from something I believed would give me pain. Understanding that self love and acceptance means acknowledging that you are completely enough as you are in this moment, and not once you have done everything that you think will make you enough. I can't wait to spend the rest of this lifetime learning more.

Comencemos este Martes llenos de Alegría y con esta Bendición de
Buda... Que todos los seres que existen gocen de paz y bienestar
Que cada ser viviente, débil o fuerte, largo o corto,
Mediano o pequeño, malo o beatífico,
Que todo ser viviente, visible o invisible,
los que viven cerca y los que viven lejos
Los nacidos y los que aguardan a nacer,
Que todos obtengan paz interior.
Que nadie engañe ni desprecie a otra persona en ningún lugar,
Que nadie desee el daño a otro, por antipatía o por enojo.
Así como una madre protege a su único hijo aun a costa de su propia vida
De igual manera, cultiva un amor sin límites hacia todos los seres vivientes.
Abre tu corazón infinito hacia el mundo entero
A lo largo, a lo ancho y en toda dirección.
Ama sin obstrucción, sin odio, sin enemistad.
Y mientras caminas, te paras, o te acuestas,
embriagado de sueño,
Entrega tu mente a este fin por completo,
Y conocerás la vida divina en la Tierra.
Backbends are an important part of Yoga. Not only do they invigorate the spine, but also release stored emotions. Today’s Asana is great backbend that will stimulate the life energy to flow from your Anahata Chakra (Heart Chakra) to your Vishuddhi Chakra (Throat Chakra) and Ajna Chakra (Third-Eye Chakra).
Vajra kapotasana is an advanced back bending posture. The name is derived from the Sanskrit vajra (diamond), kapota (pigeon) and asana (pose). To perform this asana, the yogi sits on the heels and presses the palms into the floor behind the back. The body is then lowered backward until the crown is touching the floor, if possible, and the back is fully arched, with the palms on the floor at each side of the head. In English, this asana is commonly known as dove pose.
Physically, this asana is known for improving the health and function of the lungs. It can also help with weight loss; especially from the back and the hips and stretches the spine.
On a spiritual level, vajra kapotasana opens the anahata, heart chakra. Activating this chakra helps the yogi deepen their feelings of love, openness and self-acceptance. Practicing this pose is also linked to a deeper, more contemplative meditation session. Finally, it can help deepen the yogi's sense of harmony.
