Day 23, 24, 25, 26 Brahma Muhurta
Yes what a wonderful world it is.
Just spent the last 4 days immersed in the knowledge of #Ayurveda and #yoga with a flare of #shamanism with 4 amazing beautiful souls.
How blessed we are by each of our journeys in life, sharing and laughing.
Love, love my life and all the gifts that come with it
Day 20 Brahma Muhurta
Up at 6:05 AM
Today I honored my incarnation into this temple of mine. 52 years ago my mother pushed my little body out of her creative womb. I took my first breath!
I honored her in my heart for breathing life into mine.
I honored all spirits born on this day. In special recogntion to have come to bless the earth with our unique gifts.
Day 19 of Brahma Muhurta
Wake up time 6:45 AM
Today I was joined by Minou and Leila for my morning sattva intake. Cats know where it's at. They seek the only streak of sunlight on the floor, position themselves to take it all in. Minou rolls onto his back exposing his heart while Leila stands tall eyes squinting taking the sun in like a Sphynx in front of a pyramid.
Demonstrating 2 asana poses: corps and hero's pose. I followed their lead in my morning practice. Cats are some of the best teachers
Day 18 Brahma Muhurta
Hmmmm wake up time 8 AM
Not quite sattva time.
Nevertheless, I came upstairs to meditate in full sun exposure. It was still just as blissful!
My mind had a few moments of criticism; thoughts of what are you doing? Can't you stick to waking up early? You're soooo lazy?
Then my wisdom popped in and said: remember be impeccable with your word. Impeccable means without sin. Without sin means not doing any harm to self. Not doing harm to self is any action that is harmful to self and to others which is equally harmful to oneself. So criticism, is words harmful to oneself.
Solution...I raised my hand with the middle finger up and said to mind. Buzz off you are hurting me!
Have an amazing day!
Day 17 Brahma Muhurta
5:15 am absorbing sattva.
After a few sun salutations I brought my attention to bringing the water element into my sadhana with flowing movements in my asanas. There are salutations for all the elements. In the hot summer months it's important to bring in a water namaskar to ease the fire of the season. Pay attention, and intuit what your body needs. It's really early in the morning and you are present to honor your temple. Don't waste time doing what the book tells you to do or how you learnt something a certain way. Simply step into your being and listen to your wisdom. It knows what it needs and knows how to do it.
Breathe in, breathe out!
Day 15 and 16 Brahma Muhurta
The last 2 mornings the sun has been high in the sky by the time I pulled myself out of bed. Although it was still early around 6:30.
I've been given the gift of time to reflect these past couple of days. And I have made an observation. Is it the truth? Not sure yet. My eating choices have been less desirable in the last couple of days; choosing chocolate and chips.
I've noticed a connection of boredom to making unhealthy food choices. Could it be that the food we eat impacts are ability to wake up with the sun? Could it be that what we put in our mouths affects are very willingness to honor ourselves wholeheartedly? Of course there is a connection. I've spent a lifetime of eating chocolate. Could it be that it is the very thing that keeps me in bed in the morning, feeling tired? Truth?
Sometimes it takes us a lonnnnnnggggg time to connect some dots.
I think I will go have another piece of chocolate and ponder some more
