We avoid showing ourselves by using our musculature to create protective barriers around our vulnerabilities. We are afraid the outside world will damage our true self, so we often live life without including this part of us. And yet, we are hunting for this hidden jewel, and other feelings such as hurt, anger, and sadness are in the way of our finding this place inside. When we do, the real being is allowed to emerge, and we will realize, ‘I didn’t know I could love and be loved.”
While living in Montreal, I took many different courses. They included Focusing, Energetic Anatomy, Spiritual Psychology, Reiki and Core Emotions. These courses were not only absorbing in their content, huge insights and healing occurred. In the Focusing course I became aware of a core belief I had. At some level, I felt I didn’t deserve to be loved because I was adopted. The amount of tears released with that insight seemed endless. The Energetic Anatomy and Reiki courses introduced me to the energy body. Through these courses I learnt a lot, including how sensitive the energetic layer of my body is. For example, if I walk under power lines I begin to vibrate.
All of these courses moved me along on my journey. Just like yoga, they guided me into new awareness within Myself and offered lots of insights and aha moments. When RMB crossed my path, I knew this modality was the next phase of Returning Home. In all honesty, I had no idea I wasn’t ‘home’. That awareness only came as I dove deeper and deeper into new depths of my Being. Depths I didn’t know existed.
My journey to become a Rosen Method Practitioner continues. The inner work required is long and arduous in many ways. Many times the urge to quit has arose. Something keeps me going though. The transformations I have gone through quite often boggle my mind. This work has significantly deepened my yoga practice and how I teach yoga. I am deeply moved to bring this work to people. Offering them the possibility of shifting from the person they thought they were, to the person they were meant to be.
