Brave spirituality is the ultimate power for a sacred life. Your transformation is a journey to experience true compassion and your Zen future is understanding destiny. Sometimes life is more than breath for your soul is inner poetry unlimited. In your mind’s eye you will find your enlightenment. - Gatlianne
We are so much braver than we typically give ourselves credit. We look to outside sources to build us up, validate us, prove ourselves to our Self, and prove our worth. The truth of this phenomenon is that there is never a time when any outside source can deep down truly give us the validation that we crave, the proof that we are something or somebody, or the knowing that our worth is immeasurable in its vastness. These are things that can only come from within. When we receive this from any source outside of our own hearts then it is a false validation, a false proof, and a false sense of worth. For having someone else believe for us helps insofar as it gives us the push we need to keep going – but it will not make these things so. We are only validated and worthy when we truly see ourselves in our truth and believe that we are worthy. It does not come from lip service. It does not come from pride. It does not come from material or fanciful forms of success. The only true self worth comes from an inner knowing and believing that we Are – it is as simple as that. Right now, no matter what you believe about yourself – you Are. You are a beautiful Divine spark with a light that shines softly, yet, brightly even when you can’t see it. Others see it and they hold the space for you to re-connect with that light and see your true self. The self that is One with the All, the self that is a masterpiece in its existence just as it is, right now.
Connect to your inner knowing and build strength in the belief in your Self with Dolphin Pose. This pose calms the mind and releases stress, tension, and mild depression. This pose is a gentle full body stretch that allows you to release while standing strong. On a physical level, this pose is suggested for those with wrist problems that interfere with the more traditional downward dog pose.
To practice Dolphin Pose, come to all fours and breathe. Balance in this position as you connect with your body, stacking your joints to provide a solid and stable base. While here tune in to the root chakra and know that you are safe. Drop the elbows down, either clasping the hands or extending the palms flat. Slowly press the hips up and back while straightening the legs. Again, find your balance while stacking the joints. Allow the shoulders to be over the elbows effortlessly. Walk the feet in until the shoulders and elbows are perpendicular. Relax the neck and allow the shoulders to drop away from the ears. Engage the abdominal muscles and take in Dolphin Pose. Tune in to the solar plexus chakra and claim your personal power. Open your heart space and allow in love for self. Breathe. This is your moment to connect with your brave spirituality.
