“Make the space in your body. The universe will fill it. It always does.”
– Leslie Kaminoff –
Following on from my blog post Let Go (Part 2), I wanted to write a post about the importance of creating space and how yoga and meditation can help you with this.
It’s amazing how much stuff we hold on to subconsciously. How many emotions, how many thoughts and feelings about things in the past that we can’t change and perhaps aren’t supportive to us in the present moment.
When we choose to let go and submit ourselves to what is, in the now, we create space for wonderful new things to come into our lives. The new may come in the form of a person, a place, a job, a hobby or an experience.
For example, it’s no coincidence whatsoever that I recently decided to let go of a person called Robert in my life that was no longer playing a positive role, and out of the blue yesterday, I met the most beautiful person in my Yoga Practice in Venice Beach called, what for it . . . Robert. I am certain that we will both play an important role in one another’s lives, no matter how big or small.
Furthermore, it is absolutely no coincidence whatsoever that I met this beautiful person, at the end of a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing yoga practice, after having come out of the most amazing savasana that had brought me to tears of joy, because of the love that I felt in my heart for some of the most important people in my life.
It felt that my heart was full to bursting with love for my beautiful parents, my lovely little sister and her husband, and my darling boyfriend Darren.
I know for sure that in that one 90 minute yoga practice I created so much space for love in my life, and I’m certain that during that time I was letting go of and processing things that no longer served me.
So my question for you today is this, how can you create more space in your life? Is it through doing some yoga or meditation? Or perhaps it might be having a clean and tidy of your living space? Perhaps you need to decide to let go of someone in your life who is no longer serving a positive purpose. Or maybe you need to let go of a grudge or a bad feeling about something or someone? Perhaps through just writing an email or making a phone call to apologise might make life a little bit easier, and create some space for more positive things to happen. Whatever you choose, know that it is perfect, right now.
If you did want to dip your toes into the magical world of meditation you might like to take part in Oprah and Deepak’s 21 day meditation challenge.
Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,
