She arrived about 20 minutes after our first yoga session started on Friday evening.
Surrounded with a sacred circle of women, a beautiful goddess yoga room, majestic Colorado mountains, and the hint of fall in the air, she tiptoed in quietly to join the circle, moved into child’s pose and began to settle in.
I slowly walked over amidst teaching my class, sat down beside her and started to slowly rub her back. Tears began to stream. Big full exhales followed.
“Thank you,” she whispered. “This is exactly what I have been needing.”
I had personally reached out to her quite a few times to remind her of our upcoming women’s retreat weekend. I was so glad I did.
Apparently she needed a little nudge.
Even though we know what is best for ourselves, know what we love, how to treat ourselves and what feels good, we so often succumb to our resistance.
Our minds love to point out the reasons why we can’t, why we shouldn’t or why our resistance is logical.
Repeatedly, our resistance takes the form of fears and doubts that prevent us from taking the steps towards what we really want. They are complicated, sneaky and tenacious.
We have our go-to excuses, stories, limitations, fears, and self-doubts that know exactly how to do their jobs – keep us stuck.
I want you to live a life you love.
I want that for you, for me, and for all of us.
I want lives where our desires, our intentions, our diligence and our self-care are greater than our resistance to them.
When this is occurring, we manifest our dreams. When it is not, we most often stay stuck.
So let’s chat ...
What is holding you back?
In just one week from today I will be heading out of town to explore the wild feminine, enjoy the harvest full moon and eclipse, and to rest and restore on our fall women's full moon retreat weekend.
With the time and space to reconnect with ourselves, tap into the transition of the season and create an eagle-eye view on life and things – we can reset.
There are endless gifts of being on retreat...
- time and space to listen inward and feel.
- time to be outside and connect the energetics of nature and the season.
- the ability to gain clear and concise perspective on our lives.
- But most importantly, we have a chance to remember who we are, what we want, and what we need to thrive.
Maybe this little nudge will help you overcome your resistance << Test First Name >>.
Maybe this little reminder will create an opening for you to imagine yourself fully embodying your health and happiness.
Are you feeling the call?
If so, come share in the journey with us next weekend.
Reconnect and restore in the majesty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains with a retreat designed for your health, nourishment, and body-mind-spirit connection.
Soak in the sacred waters of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, enjoy the delicious organic home cooked meals, and share in the sisterhood of connection and ritual.
Come and watch the LIVE Q and A that I did earlier this week with my special guest, Helen Knight, and just hit reply if you have any questions.
We have just 3 spots left. Is one of them for you?
There is still time to join us.
