The 4th pillar of Forrest Yoga is Spirit. The definition of spirit is; the non-physical part of a person which is the seat of emotions and character; the soul. I believe spirit is my authentic self – the part of me that has been covered with layer upon layer of social conditioning for protection and distorted connection, labels that I use to create my identity. My spirit is my truth, my spirit is my connection to all beings. The voice of my spirit is my intuition, and when I hear, listen and respond to my spirit I act from a place of integrity, rather than from a place of wanting to conform to someones wishes or societal pressure. Spirit feels like ease and sounds like truth.
Take a moment and think what spirit means for you?
Practice from a place that brightens your spirit. Practice from a place that provides a sense of happiness and well-being, truthfulness. Move away from habitual actions or thought processes that dim your spirit, that make you feel not good enough and inadequate.
