What is your heartfelt desire? How do you truly want to feel?
Something may arise as soon as the question is asked. Still, sit with it a little longer...
How do you really want to feel? What does your heart truly want?
The first response might be the truest or it might be the reactive response to any opposing forces you've been feeling. It could be both. There is something in being with the question and the answer longer. There is no race to find the answer the quickest. In finding the true feeling you desire, you may also be shown how or that you are already feeling that. You are that.
While reading this, you may be tempted to simply get to the end or even leave now to find the next email, post, article... my suggestion... pause and feel. Look inward to your heart. Be patient. Let your heart tell you the secrets that have been whispered to you throughout your life.
As I paused from writing, the feeling I continue to arrive at is Love. In writing that, I feel Love. I feel the surge down my arm, through my hand, into the pen as I write (now transferred here through the keyboard). Love is the feeling I wish for others as well. Did you feel Love in your heart? Or was it Joy for you? Was it Peace? If you're still not sure, pause again.
What is more important than knowing how you truly want to feel? It will inform everything else you do anyway. Whether it shows up in a positive or negative way, it drives you. Find out what it is, so you get to make more conscious choices. Connect with that feeling, so it will move more freely through you. Perhaps only to call it's name rather than labelling as "it." Feelings have a life. They moves us. They want to live through you. As you.
When you find your heartfelt desire, turn your Sankalpa (Resolve) into a statement beginning with I am or I feel or I intend to be. Say that to yourself often, during Yoga or Yoga Nidra. Feel your truth, often. I would love to support your heartfelt desire in my offering of Yoga Nidra. You can find recordings here or my next workshop here.
