Spiritual Yoga Practice

  • Posted on December 13, 2013 at 3:11 pm

What is a “Spiritual Yoga Practice?”

It is a regular personal practice that gives you self-confidence, motivation and clarity of purpose.

It helps you on many levels. Firstly gently grounding, massaging and toning your physical body to give you confidence in your health, healing and your ability to achieve things.

Then, yoga grounds your emotions so you “feel” more, but are more aware of how your emotions flow in a natural rhythm and cycle up and down.  Rather than being overwhelmed or become guilty and depressed for having a “low” mood.

Spiritual Yoga Practise

On the mental level your motivation increases and tension and anxiety dissipate. Stress and tension have a mental effect that lowers your immune system making you more susceptible to cold and flu type illnesses. When thoughts race round in your head then your response to challenges and situations becomes “flight or flight” and life is a constant battle. But with a spiritual yoga practice you can respond from your calm and balanced self and also in a way that you excel at naturally as you remember your true inner strengths at soul level.

The beautiful thing about your spiritual yoga practice is that is easily combines the support your whole being needs physically, emotionally, metnally and spiritually in one simple practise – easy!

The way you do yoga is key to linking in with your true positive self, the perfect way you were designed at soul level. When you connect to your soul you feel complete unconditional love everyday! Instead of feeling insecure, afraid of your weaknesses and not perfect enough you find within yourself the strength to stay positive through any challenge.

The power of the law of attraction is that as you spend more time in the state of unconditional love for yourself during your spiritual practise, the more this energy is drawn back to you in the other areas of your life too, as all parts of your life are linked.

I first used my spiritual yoga practise to benefit me in a massive way when I flew off to live in Japan for a year as a 20 year old. I was so nervous/excited at the same time. Being alone in a completely foreign country could have been daunting and difficult to settle and make new friends and have fun. But the connection I had during each day with my practise gave me the confidence to grab all the opportunities there on offer and to set myself up for life. I learnt how to have a balanced and disciplined attitude to carrying out my work, having time for studying, working and socialising all in proportion to be happy and succeessful. I also gave myself the confidence to do any new thing I wanted by learning 500 Kanji, 2 new alphabets and speaking Japanese with the local students and inhabitants! As well as travelling and learning about new cultures and beliefs I discovered my love for travel and for meeting new people and forging lasting friendships and networks.

Do what you love

The confidence to take up challenges head on and face my fears that I gained from my spiritual yoga practise meant that I came back to the UK and was able to pass my degree with first class honours – not bad considering it was a molecular biology degree!! And I have never been shy to go after what I want, a house, a good job, moving to another foreign country here in France and ultimately setting up my business I love Balance On Purpose, where I work for myself doing what I love and naturally excel at. All achieved because I kept my connection to my own inner self going strong, loving myself through easy and enjoyable actions that have given me the positive state of mind to overcome all of life’s challenges and to push through them making my life more and more in alignment with what I want and desire that makes me happy!

When you make your yoga exercised a spiritual, daily yoga practise it will help you create experiences that express who you are at soul level. The true positive amazing YOU! When you give yourself daily time focusing on your energy flow to the divine then the flow is increased. You get to use this flow of energy to move you towards what you want: Experiences that are not anxious, stressed or worried but that make you shine, feel great and are in alignment with your highest good. Rather than experiences based on the “mental” or our responsibilities in life that keep society ticking over such as planning, organising, problem solving, arranging etc.

These are not bad things to do, but it’s bad if we feel so obliged to do them so much in expense of doing what we really love. We don’t act on guidance that really inspires us. We simply act on information from the mental level of society which is a pretty boring and stressful thing to focus mostly on that!! When our fun time comes along at weekend its so short and we are so tired we can’t really enjoy it properly anyway!

Make the good stuff happen!

Have you ever wanted to make good things happen in your life… but then couldn’t quite pluck up the courage to do the necessary things to make it happen?

Or maybe by the time you actually got round to doing it, you had lost so much motivation so you didn’t really give it your best shot!

We have dreams for a reason – to inspire us! buddha1

If we doubt ourselves that we can achieve them then all that does is give us an excuse not to start going forward towards them!

So what if your dream is big, scary and you have no idea how to do it?

If you truely believe you are a powerful creator and have free will to choose your own actions then your dream is yours for the taking 🙂

It is lovely talking to children about their dreams, because they are so new still they haven’t picked as many conditioning about what they can and can’t do. They dream of being astronauts and doctors or pop stars and horse jumpers!

If you talk to many 20 year olds about what there dreams are, they have lost this enthusiasm and are settling with a dream of “a regular job that pays enough each month”

BOO!

Then at 30 or 40 many many people think that they couldn’t possibly start something new at that age! BUT the ones that do learn so much about themselves and what makes them happy. They start new lives in new places with great friends and fun experiences instead of going over the same weekly pattern that they have done for years.

I have had a number of big scary dreams in my life, that I had NO idea how to do. The first was at 18. I wanted to live abroad and travel (I’m a Sagittarius through and through 😉 ). I had no idea how to achieve this with little money as a college student and a part time job in a cafe!

But I KNEW I was going to do it and searched for the opportunities. I was lucky enough to get the grades to get into my first choice of university which I picked because of great employment rates after graduation due to the SANDWICH course (not the cheese and pickle type). Their courses offer a year out working in industry and sure enough there was a place in JAPAN that came up just for me!!!

Balance On Purpose

So at the age of 20 off I went to go live in Japan for a whole year woo hoo!

It was scary and new, but great. There are a few blog’s worth of stories to be told another time 😉

The point is, I didn’t hold back I went for it and committed to the fact I was going to do it, no matter what.

How often do you want something, then only give yourself a tiny bit of it? Then say, oh well it wasn’t that great I’m not missing out on much – but deep inside knowing you want to.

We can all say to ourselves “IF I DON’T REALLY TRY, THEN I CAN’T REALLY FAIL”

But you also don’t really get to experience breathtaking and amazing things such as flying off to live in Japan for a year!! Or __________________________ (insert your big dream here!)

So I would love to teach you my method for increasing your motivation to run after your big dreams.

I have a super special offer on my video training course here just until Friday 27th September!

What big dreams are you not running towards??
