The path to reconnecting with our Higher and True Self is long and many times painful. But it gets more bearable with a supportive community who is on the same path and continuously encourage our growth. Although the lessons don’t stop coming, they do get less painful once we start listening, learning and letting go.
This is the beautiful experience I’ve been having the past four weeks with the most incredible group of human beings. Beings whose lights will forever shine brightly in my heart. The amount of love I’ve received is truly astounding. And this unconditional love has helped me understand things in a more compassionate way. It has notably grown my capacity to love and accept others, and myself. I experienced how powerful unity of purpose can be when loving souls come together to reconnect with the Self, with the intention to serve others.
Many reflections were made as we closed our training together. This one in particular happened sometime during our heavenly and beautiful closing ceremony. It was realizing the need for this kind of culture and community back home. I want this kind of space that I’ve just lived in to be more accessible for others. A space to hold everything that we are, just as we are. Allowing us to sit with all our emotions, with our pain and our happiness alike. Feeling them and then letting them go. A space for loving, nurturing, healing, connecting and shedding off those layers that don’t serve us well anymore.
In these spiritual and sacred spaces I find my Truth. It was partially thanks to the facilitator who provided the safe space for me to explore myself and reconnect to my Higher Self. But, essentially, it was mostly on me. If I wouldn’t have been willing to do the work, I wouldn’t have transformed as drastically as I feel I did. And this is the type of self-work I will be doing for the rest of my life.
This is exactly what I want to offer others. I want to hold spaces for individuals seeking for their own Truth, in whatever way this may come. As a yoga instructor, and as a human being, I am a space holder.
