Today was a rough day. Physically my body was in pain. I never even made it out of my pajamas. I read and I rested and made myself some yummy chai tea. I took herbs and rubbed essential oils into my body. I fed myself and I listened to podcasts as I played solitaire on my computer.
My yoga mat kept calling me but I kept answering with – I hurt too much. I’m too tired. I can’t.
The day wore on and the pressure to get on my mat kept building until I surrendered. I practiced my favorite Kundalini Yoga kriya and it was rough . . . but I gently guided myself through each pose. I knew that I would feel better if I just kept up. And I did. The pain and the fatigue lessened and the heaviness I was experiencing all day dissolved.
My Inner Guidance System (IGS) never fails me if I choose to listen. Sometimes my pain body is so loud that it makes it difficult to hear to the voice of the Soul. When I do listen I am always grateful for the guidance it reveals.
