It all started when a yoga teacher said, “We are 80% water, so there is no need we can’t move like water.” WHAT?! I can’t move like water! How the heck does she move like water? I thought as she demonstrated! Is flexibility a state of mind? Maybe it’s because I don’t believe I can move like water.
And then the universe (in another yoga class) offered me this advice. “Flexibility is a state of mind.” Hmmm... flexibility is a state of mind? I was just thinking that. But...how can that be? I am pretty open minded, but if I put my body in some deep twist, I will tear something! Won’t you? Or is that just my limiting belief?
And then I heard the word, “Inner flexibility” from Wayne Dyer while he was promoting his newest book, Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life. I began to feel that I am simply not flexible. I have become mental tight and constricted. I am sure there are others that are more constricted than I am, but to some degree – I am just not as flexible (in all areas of my life) as I used to be.
What do you think? What do you believe? Why do you believe that?
My daughter is a year and a half and she naturally falls into yoga poses. She is curious, giggles all the time and changes her behavior with ease. I am allowing her to be my teacher. I am deepening my life in the areas of freedom, fun, flexibility and letting go.
