When life became rather stressful for me 20 years ago, Divine Grace stepped in and sent me down a path of yoga and meditation while traveling the world and meeting many beautiful souls. Yoga allowed me to go deeper into myself and helped me to understand my mind and reactions to the world. My experience has also taught me that I have the power to create my own reality by paying attention to how I feel at any moment.
It hasn’t always been easy for me. I experienced many ups and downs in my inner and outer journeys. I had to get real and to be brutally honest with myself when exploring the inner world of my thoughts, my habits, my perspectives and opinions of myself and of my life. It was necessary to go into the dark places in order to let my light shine.
Whether you are embarking on a spiritual journey of self-inquiry, or you have been exploring your faith and spirituality for a long time, it’s valuable to check in with yourself from time to time to appreciate the wisdom you have already acquired.
