What do I want? What do I need? Where am I going in 2015? Is my inner dialogue. Refining my direction by the way of feeling it in my gut and bringing my New Year's Dreams into my heart center by back bending is my approach to having a truthful New Year's resolution.
Here's a picture of my yoga practice as of late where I'm bringing the fire in my belly, my intention, right up into my heart center for some air. The 3rd energy center found within our mid body is called manipura chakra. It is associated with the fire element. Manipura chakra is where our deepest knowing of the self is formed. Our heart's energetic center found within the center of our chest and shoulder blades is called anahata chakra. It is associated with the air element. Anahata chakra is where we balance loving ourself and others. We all know the moment you cover a flame's air source it goes out. So my feeling is to keep on connecting to what my gut has to say about my direction and consistently work towards bringing it up into my heart's center to breathe in and out so it can last.
I wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
