A practice can be lots of things — yoga, meditation, painting, cooking, writing, dancing. The difference between just doing these things as activities, and doing them as your practice is purpose. When you make these activities your practice, you do them with purpose. And that purpose is to connect you to that all knowing place within.
It’s still too soon to post the details as they’re not fully processed, but I can say I was shaken to the core. Everything within has been tossed to the surface, and I’m questioning it all.
Moving through my days from this place of vulnerability is like walking on a wood floor just as the rug is pulled out from underneath me. Unstable, to say the least. Yet somehow, I still feel grounded.
I noticed it the other morning. Amidst all that has happened…I’m okay. Actually better than okay. Sure, my sleep sucks — with so much on my mind. But I’m able to tap into an inner calm. And it’s because of my practice.
My practice feeds my foundation. It makes me stronger. And keeps me centered.
You can be anywhere for your practice — in the yoga studio, on the running path, or in the park, but establishing your practice at home is key to taking it with you wherever you are.
And that’s why I’m introducing a new series on the blog, Home Practice.
Each month, I will share something from my home practice to hopefully inspire you to get yours going, or keep at it.
To start us off well, here’s a little breathing exercise that one of my blogging buddies turned me onto.
Oh, that’s the thing with your home practice–it’s always evolving.Β Pretty much anything can become a part of it as long as it gets you connected inside. Also, it doesn’t have to take up a lot of time–this one can be completed in under 5 minutes!
