Happy New Year from Pure Energy Yoga

We had the opportunity to see the world’s largest spruce tree in Olympic National Park this past summer.  This ancient tree is estimated to be 1,000 years old.  It is 58’11” in circumference and is 191’ tall. 

It was amazing to see and feel this massive tree.  The part of the tree that spoke most to me was the immense root system that provides support and nourishment. The energy of the tree was incredible, and just touching the roots both calmed and energized my spirit.  When I touched the roots, some sap got onto my hands and I enjoyed the additional gift of breathing in the beautiful spruce essence as we continued our hike! 

Nature is a wonderful teacher.  In addition to the beautiful connection and energy experienced in nature, there are so many lessons to absorb if we allow ourselves to be present for them.

Starting a new year can feel like a new beginning-a time to hit the reset button.  Some of us dream, plan and set goals.  Some of us are weary and think, "Why bother? Nothing will change".  Dreams and goals of the past have died on the vine, so we often give up.  I encourage you to continue to dream and plan.  I encourage you to get quiet, meditate, pray and center.  Feel and know that the Divine wisdom that inhabits nature is also living within you.  Tuning into the whispers of your soul guides and assists you in growing into your highest self, which serves the world in the unique way only you can. 

Visualize the life you would like to have.  Not just the typical "lose weight" goal.  Think of the why behind your goals and dreams.  Why do you want to be healthy and live longer? What is it about
life on this earth that you treasure?  How can you bring more of that experience into being? What would give a sense of meaning and purpose to your life? What would give you a sense of connection to others and to creation? What would give a sense of adventure and joy?

Then think of one step you could take in the direction of your dreams and goals.  Take that one step today.  Each day take another step.  Visualize and feel it as tending your roots.  Your roots will grow down deep within the earth.  They will spread out in all directions.  This process doesn’t happen quickly.  But becoming grounded in daily practices and action steps moves us steadily forward in our desired direction and also allows us to enjoy each phase of this sacred life journey.

I would be honored to assist you in taking those steps, whether through an individual therapeutic yoga session, Reiki energy healing session, group yoga class, Reiki class or facilitating your group's retreat.  The whispers of my soul have led me to this purpose, and I am so grateful to share these gifts with you.

Blessings, love and light in 2017,
