Good morning! Happy first day of April!
I went down to the Hudson River this morning before writing to clear my head a bit and let the reality sink in that I have just completed an extraordinary month. I was able to rise up from a lot of very challenging feelings and emotions and ended up reaching new levels in my career that caught me by total surprise and really blew me away! I connected with more intenSati students this month and on deeper levels thanks to my classes and amazing chance to sub for Patricia and other instructors. I learned that I am stronger than I ever imagined. A real champion inside...and out! To put it mildly, I AM SO GRATEFUL!!!!!!!
That said, I'm feeling a little fear and anxiety about continuing with the momentum I created. Success can feel scary and letting your dream cats out of the bag by really owning your desires, not to mention experiencing tangible accomplishments, can feel exhilarating with a side of terror. :)
Cut to it's April 1st and I didn't write my new intenSati series yet! I am giving myself some more time/space and plan to teach "Empowered to Rise" once more in Central Park (Sat., 10AM, msg me for details!). Then, we have Easter Sunday (is there something wrong with me meditating to the tune of Jesus getting his motivation to rise after running that series a few times?) and thennnnnn I'll teach my new APRIL Series on MONDAY, APRIL 5th at my 7AM Park Avenue and 33rd St EQUINOX class!!
APRIL. Light. Longer days delay the night. Ah, I talked about swimming a few days ago but I don't think I mentioned that feeling of weightlessness and lightness you feel in the water. The spring invitation is to shed, release, let go of MORE stuff that holds you back or down...lightening up your attitude (laughing more, smiling, being silly!!!!), lightening up your clothing and how your body feels, choosing to shed light on things you may still be in denial about and ultimately, shining more light on others so that the people with whom you interact experience YOU as a positive, inspirational human being doing good in this world...YES, Aaapril's calling!
I think we just chose an April Series theme!
Lighten up and be on your way(pril)!!!
I lighten up (Happy)
I let it be (Let Go)
I'm on my way (Intention)
and I am free (Free)
Ok, I'm very happy that I now have at least a portion of this month's series. See, we just did this together!! :)
Where do you want to lighten up in your life?! Set the intention to continue your smooth winter to spring transition. Embrace a softer heart and brighter spirit. With your newfound levity, you'll be able to spring into even more ACTIONS that are for your highest good!!
I LOVE it already!!
Closing thought: I am ready to lighten up and enjoy myself! Today, I let things go and get out of my own way so I enjoy greater HAPPINESS and HEALTH!
With love, gratitude and new LIGHT,
