Here's a little photo mash up of two really evocative images for me in these past few days. I'm en route to Vancouver now and have been riding this incredible travel high over the past week. This high felt like unlimited energy, being in the moment and total trust that everything would work out.
Then yesterday I crashed. I felt stuck and scared and like I wanted to pull the covers over my head.
I breathed through it and taught yoga and drank tea and packed and wrote in my journal and the sad, icky feeling was still there. The interesting thing is that I don't know why I felt so out of sorts. But I do know that I woke up quite peacefully this morning and went deeper into my meditation than I had in a long, long time.
I feel good now and ready to take this incredible workshop on #integraltheory this week. I'm starting to see that before the next wave rolls out the waters have to pull in a bit. If we want to shine bright, we need to spend time hanging out with the powerful energies of our shadows.
There is an ebb and flow and if I fight that natural cycle then I will stay stuck so instead I will float and trust that everything changes and gets stronger in that transformation.
