In light of the events of the past week – earthquake (both literal and personal), and the hurricane (both literal and personal), I felt like it was necessary to continue with the practice of detox. The Detox Flow Yoga is led by Seane Corn (see Day 8 ) and today I did the advanced practice. It is a sequence of flowing, core stimulation, decompression, compression and twisting that really gets everything moving in your body – physical and emotional. It seems I’ve been in fight-or-flight mode for so long that I haven’t realized how much I needed to hunker down and start releasing all my “stuff.”
There comes a time in everyone’s life where we have to let go of all the crap we’ve been clinging to – the crap we think will shield us, protect us, make us impenetrable. The most moving part of practice this morning was a statement Seane Corn made about forgiveness: “The inability to forgive is a poison we take in, hoping someone else will die.”
Affirmation for meditation: I experience love wherever I go.
