Physical movement is something that occurs in our lives daily, but when do we really pay attention to the journey that our body takes to get from point A to point B?
So, try this: Slowly lift and lower your arm and notice the path that your fingers take. You can even watch your fingers as they move. Do you notice a difference in your sense of awareness, and maybe even self-connection? Such a simple gesture can be powerful when you add awareness to it. Now, not to sound like a meditation guru, but movement with a little attention is often a magically sacred experience for me. Even if I’m not “OM-ing”, or praying to a higher being, I’ve found my own inner sense of spiritual connection through the simple act of moving.
Whether I am practicing yoga, performing aerial silks, rock climbing, balancing with another human, or even taking a conscious walk, I find that my senses are heightened, my mind is calm, and my body is energized! I take my yoga with me off the mat and incorporate it into my daily life. Now, to me, those are the things that make life more vibrant.
