I've recently had a whole new inner-growth spurt, where I feel like I'm moving through my stuck places with an ease I've longed for for years. It feels like a big relief and really exciting to me to be feeling this free!
For me, this type of quickening often coincides with the flow (not ebb) of my yoga practice.
This time is no different.
I was bit by a tick about a year and a half ago and infected with 3 different illnesses, (including Lyme Disease), so my usually dedicated yoga practice suffered. I was practicing only a few times a week.
Then a few months ago, I began to have a lot more energy, so I brought back my daily practice and immediately, doing so kicked off not just my immune system, but this big inner-growth spurt!
You know the feeling? Suddenly, new aliveness became available in my inner thighs and pelvis, my lower back tension began to melt away, and I'm feeling stronger than I have in a long, long time. Generally, I feel like I can do anything and my creativity is soaring.
So I'm sharing my interview with Colleen Millen with you at the perfect time! As a fellow Somatic Psychotherapist and Forrest Yoga Guardian, Colleen knows a thing or two about breakthroughs.
In fact, in this interview, she shares about how she used both physical and emotional yoga principles to overcome depression, eating disorder, anxiety, and trauma. She went from deep, inner struggle into a profound sense of peace and connection with Spirit.
Her story left me incredibly inspired, connected, and feeling really alive (you can tell by all my giggling at the end!), so as you watch it, notice how your body feels. You feel yourself waking up more, right?
Colleen has an incredible skill at being able to speak to the deepest places inside us, which is what makes her a great yoga teacher, but it also makes for a powerfully transformational interview, so have a watch:
Once you've had a chance to watch, Colleen and I would love to know:
What one thing did you learn from this video that you can put into action today? The process of writing out that action is your first inspiring step toward making big, healthy changes in your life like Colleen did, so tell us all about it!
And remember to share details! Sharing with my readers (fellow soulful women who'll really get it) will provide you with a sense of accountability and will put even more power behind your words.
Thank you so much for watching, sharing, and connecting with me here. It's a great joy to get to share like this with you!
Finally, you know that girlfriend who came to mind while you were watching this? The one you just know needs to see this? Send it along! It just might spark the breakthrough she needs in order to take back control of her wellbeing.
