How do you react when life gets choppy? It is your inclination to think the worst, or do you give yourself time to feel what has happened and then make decisions on how to move forward? When I finally realized that I could stop, take time and then process events that affected me in various ways, I was set free from the automatic reactions that caused so much hurt.

Yoga and meditation helped me cultivate awareness so I could pay attention to my feelings and emotions. When I began to ask myself how different situations made me feel I was surprised at how sensitive and scared I was of the feelings that appeared.

Before I cultivated inner awareness, fear overshadowed my life. Instead of trust, I managed discomfort and disbelief, and this became a huge drain on my life; everything was an effort, even joyful times.

V-Kundalini yoga and meditation helped me unearth the destructive emotions that had lived in the background of my life for as long as I could remember. Through a dedicated practice of meditation, I started to understand what it was like to feel the flow of love come through me. I witnessed it taking down fearful walls that separated me from love in my life.

With a mere three-minute daily breathing practice I gained strength and courage and a view of my life I hadn’t had before. http://sarahbrassard.com/meditation-calm-heart/ I started to see fear for what it was, an emotion that was calling for healing and this awareness flushed me with compassion, self-love and restored me. Offer yourself the chance to feel love grow in you, devote time and energy to waking up to your life and see the amazing way your dreams turn towards you to welcome you home.

    Dear Sarah, Having experienced some huge transitions over the past couple years, mainly losing my parents, I often find myself struggling with my emotions, second guessing decisions and seeing a clear path to the future. More than ever, I am determined to find peace, strength and to reignite my yoga practice, something that has been missing for far too long. Visiting your page regularly has been so helpful and I am truly grateful for your inspirational writing. with much love…

      Dear Karen, Thank you for your honesty. I believe this is what life becomes the continual strength and courage to pick ourselves up again and again until it becomes second nature to address life with this level of compassion and forgiveness. My very best.. Sarah
