Yoga/Journaling – Bridge of Love

20140218-093645.jpg

Good morning!
Today’s yoga practice was a treat for me! It was a relaxed practice focusing on twists and simple bridges to move the spine and open up the back. Being hunched over at a computer for most of the day, Monday through Friday, this felt great to gently move my spine in a different directions 🙂 On the emotional side, I felt a feeling of unraveling…twisting and releasing…the release from the twist was refreshing and calming for my mind and body.

Whatever your practice was today or will be, I hope your take some time after your practice to reflect on yourself, what came up, what didn’t come up, in your journal. Journaling is one of the best therapies, in my opinion 🙂

Today’s quote for inspiration comes from Martha Whitmore Hickman’s Healing After Loss, Daily Meditations for Working Through Grief. Great little pocket size book that I carry around in my purse.

“There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love…” – Thornton Wilder

Daily Journal Inspiration – Pema Chödrön on Healing

Today, I chose words by Pema Chödrön to prompt your journal entry. Her words have been very influential in my life. Make time for yourself today to write and reflect on her words below…

“We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.” – Pema Chödrön

Are you letting there be room for grief, for relief, for misery and joy in your life?
