Health is Wealth: 53/243 - Stability Circuit #RUN #YOGA #MTB

Living in time and space just might be the scariest, most heartbreaking, and lonely path an angel could ever choose.

Until, of course, they realize that being scared doesn’t mean they can’t make a difference, broken hearts can still love just fine, and that feeling lonely doesn’t mean they’re actually alone.

Then they’ll laugh an angel laugh, fluff their wings, and dare a new dare all over again.

HRV Score: 54
Relative Balance: 7 (sympathetic)
Sleep: 7hr 38m

Overall morning mood: I slept through my first alarm which is pretty abnormal and woke up right at seven in a bit of panic. Other than that felt pretty dang good.

Meditation Practice - 7:46a- 10m 07s - 5hz Theta

Stress: Stress happens when you hold tow opposing thoughts in your mind about the same subject. “I want that, but I can’t have it.” “I am sitting traffic, but I do not want to be.” “I should be doing this, but i do not want to.” This creates disharmony in the mind and gives rise to stressful emotions. You are now at odds with yourself. When an opposite thought contradicts a desire, you have to either change the thought or let go of the desire. You can;t drive down two different roads at the same time. Pick one.

  • Teacher: Ella

  • Notes: Adam, another teacher, had asked me how class went as I was putting my shoes on and all I could really say, is there ever a bad class? I mean this is by far the cheapest form of therapy possible.

    • I wasn’t planning on attending class today, as Thurs and Sat have been my rest days from Yoga, but some plans changed and I thought going to class was the best idea.

    • Ella, of all the teachers has the calmest presence. With that being said I was still sweating like a bitch in heat in that class. I am starting to look at sweating in these classes like purging. Perhaps the day, I make it through a class completely sweat free, Ill know I am the most balanced version of myself ever? Haha!?

    • In all seriousness, I really enjoy her class. I think this was my second class I have taken by her. It seems, that every class is exactly what you need it to be. For what ever reason, the ending of her class today elicited a really emotional response. I have not a clue why.

    • The earliest memory I have, which I don’t even know is real, is running through a prairie field, I am naked, young, maybe around seven or eight years old, so just tall enough for hands to skim across the tall grass. Mountains surrounding, and trees swaying in the far off distance. I have had this vision more times that I can count through out my life and for some reason is brought a tears to my eye. Or maybe is was just the sweat building pooling in my eye sockets.. . That is what came to mind, I could see it so clear. I have seen this vision more times that I can even remember and it’s always the same. Weird.

    • She left us today in Savasana, which was awesome. A teacher has not done that in a class I had taken before. I felt like I could have stayed there for a couple of hours, but opted to hop up and get back to the day after a bit.

    • Thank you for a great class, Ella, it was much appreaciated!

Infinite Love & Gratitude!

The river is now. This moment. This breath between us. The space between your heartbeats. The moment before you blink. The instant a thought flashes through your mind. It is everything that is around us. Life. Energy. Flowing, endlessly flowing, carrying you from tomorrow. Listen: you can hear the music of it. Of the passage of time.
