Beautiful warm day today and really felt like spring time at the park Thankfully Ziggy slept for most of it cause he never took his morning nap, and after being feeding about 10 times through the night, this tired mama couldn't be dealing with a cranky baby
After my sun salutations I focused on yoga for my shoulders cause Ive always found them quite stiff and tight and always get painful knots along the back of them.
Well I wasn't expecting what happened...
My intention at the start of each session has been to shift any negative energy caught in my body and today
I had what I'd call an emotional release
I've heard of this happening in yoga, but never actually experienced it for myself.
It was like each time I breathed into a move, all the hurt, pain, anger, guilt, sadness etc. was being cleared out
I have to say, it feels fricken great to let that shit go, and I feel so much lighter after it!! Not even a week into this #40DayChallenge and already it is having a massive positive impact on me, plus my clothes are starting to fit better on me too

Writing a task list nightly (atleast 6 tasks)helps you do more during the day and hurry less. Instead of reaching for the phone 1st thing when you wake up, grab your to do list instead and get up and go as soon as your eyes open. This is quite an accomplishment in itself. We all know it’s a good thing to do, but does anyone actually do it? ♀️ #task#todolist#conquer#personaldevelopment#goals#40daychallenge
✵M U D R A S: We use these hand gestures while practicing pranayama (breath work) or meditation to direct the flow of energy within the body. ✵ ✵Mudra means “seal” or “closure” in Sanskrit. Different parts of the hands are connected with areas in the body and the brain. So when we place our hands in specific mudras, we are able to stimulate different areas of the brain and create a specific circuit of energy flow. When we hold these positions we are able to target an improved state of mind. ✵ ✵The universe has 5 elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) Our hands are thought to hold energetic points for all of these elements! Cool right?! And here’s the best part, when these elements are out of balance, we have the power to regain control and put our bodies back in check by simply using our hands with Mudra!✵ Our Thumbs represent SPACE
Our Index fingers represent Air
Our Middle Fingers represent Fire
Our Ring Fingers represent water
Our Pinky Fingers represent Earth ✵As I continue on my 40-day chanting challenge of SA RAY SA SA, I’m also putting to good use the ‘Buddhi Mudra’— by touching the thumb to the pinky finger and holding the other three fingers straight.✵ ✵The BUDDHI MUDRA: (space and air elements) This paired with our chant elevates the benefits of mental clarity, understanding intuitive messages from our subconscious, improvement of communication (including internal and external dialogue). ✵
