Let go of fear (Relaxation Guide/Story) - FULL Version

Sitting crossed-leg or lying on your back, relax your arms and legs, close your eyes and focus on your breathing, allowing your stomach to rise as you inhale and fall as you exhale. Breathe deeply for about two minutes, until you start to feel comfortable and relaxed.

Imagine that you’re walking in the forest. You were with your friends but suddenly you lost them. You are alone and it is starting to get darker. You can contemplate the sunset and the birds flying back to their nests, but you don’t know where you are. You’re carrying a heavy backpack and you’re exhausted. You want to go home and don’t know what to do. Fear arises because there’s nobody else around to help you find your way back. You decide to stand on a big stone and breathe deeply so you can relax for a few seconds hoping to find a solution to this problem. Your sceptical mind cooperates because it doesn’t have any other option, and you’re so tired, that your mind doesn’t want to argue. Your heart rate has increased because of the anxiety, but that mindful breathing you learnt on that yoga class has brought something new:

- This a popular mountain, someone will come soon and help you out, don’t worry! - a subtle voice whispers bringing some kind of serenity to your fearful mind.

You decide to follow this instruction and focus your attention on your breathing and that lovely sunset emerging in front of you. Nature seems to flow in complete harmony (if it wasn’t for this stressful situation).

-You are part of nature and you need to learn how to trust it.- the voice declares with kindness and authority at the same time.

The moon is shining now, you hear a noise from the bushes, and right when you thought the worst would happen, you hear your friends calling you! Listen to them! They have been looking for you all this time. You follow their voices and realise you were never lost, you just had to experience this fearful situation to get in contact with your intuition and true-self.

We need to learn how to listen to this natural intuition in order to let go of fear and make the right decisions at the right time. We need to make a greater contribution to this society, being aware of the roles we play as human beings on this delicate planet. A planet we all need to take care of.

Breathe once and again and feel your physical body resting wherever you are right now. You are safe. The sensation of fear was only a thought, a story… Like all the thoughts and stories we tell ourselves when we are not in control of certain situations. Intuition is part of nature.  Are you ready to let go of fear now?

Yoga, A Path of Trust? Beyond the physical body...

Can you really trust the universe or God's plans? 
Can you at least completely trust yourself?

I recently asked myself those questions... I hesitated for more than a second, and sadly I realised I didn't fully trust Life, God, or The Universe... even though I wanted to believe it with all my heart. Why is it so difficult then? I knew my mind played a big part on all this of course...

We came to this planet for a reason we don't know, yet we decided to accept certain beliefs and create a specific reality for our own life. However, behind those beliefs and labels we use to define ourselves, there's something undeniable: The rhythm of nature, which lies in complete silence (without words or human thoughts).

There's no weight or burden when you live your life fully aware and without judging everything around you and within you. There's a feeling of freedom when you don't worry about the future; when you live in the present moment trusting the rhythm of nature; when you build the future from the present moment without anxiety or judgments. That's what people call mindfulness or spiritual awareness these days. I have experienced this myself, but only for a limited time (unfortunately).

It is hard, at least for me... For example, I can't believe how many doubts and fear I have when I'm on the mat. Especially since I began the yoga teacher training... I started to observe all my thoughts, my fears, and my judgments in high speed. Overwhelming! I noticed these are the same ghosts tormenting my daily life when I'm off the mat. It's all the same. Now I feel that yoga is not only about reaching complicated postures or being able to explain them to others. It's about sculpting your inner-self... It's about shining as much as you're ready to shine without judging yourself. Just giving your best and keep learning from your teachers, fellows, and even family.

I can't promise I won't judge me or others again. I can only promise to come back to the present moment each time I find myself being mean to me or to others. I can only promise to do my best, to practice, to improve, to fall and try again until one day I can find my own wisdom and continue the journey helping others; flowing with the magnificent rhythm of nature.
