Sometimes it’s amazing when you can feel the alignment of you and the universe. Today was one of those days. A much needed day. I have been on an emotional roller coaster for a few weeks. A roller coaster like no other I have ever experienced. As a female, I have been very fortunate to not have had many troubles with hormones; however, recently that is not the case. For those who know me, also know that I have lost both my parents in the past year. My mother was my best friend and the anniversary of her death is coming in a few weeks. After her passing, I cared for my father. I noticed I became withdrawn and not my usual social butterfly self. When he passed, I stayed very busy. Moving, buying a house to renovate, anything and everything to avoid the pain. Well, that pain cannot be avoided forever. And as far as being a woman, in your forties, you must rest, and give your body what it needs to stay balanced, or it may just backfire on you!! This whole week I have been an emotional wreck. I decided my daily home meditation & yoga practice was not enough to help me heal. I have been wanting to try this lovely little yoga spot in my neighborhood for some time and today, I finally did. I could not believe how warm and welcoming everyone was, a fellow yogi introduced me to every single person in the classroom... but I had no idea what the universe had in store for me. As I sat on my mat in half locust, slowing my breath and calming my thoughts... the teacher began to speak. “Today, we are going to talk about emotions.” Holy shit, I thought to myself. I was thankful to be in the back of the class, as I could not stop my tears. I listened to her speak about how we learn to hide our pain (and many other emotions), but how we must face it to become whole again.... it was a beautiful class. And such wonderful energy from all beings in it. The Universe delivers exactly what you need, when you need it. You just have to be open to it. Thank you @bridgetmaddocks
