Thought is an object, thought is an energy, it has shape, power and travels like a bullet. Negative thought goes in a negative direction, positive in a positive direction. How we use our thoughts is in our hands, whether we allow ourselves to go along with these thoughts or not. All thoughts have a really powerful energy and they can come at us from all directions, so we think so we become. If we believe we are sick then we get sick, if we believe we are healthy we stay healthy, thought power is incredible. Observing your thoughts mindfully is so interesting, watching our reactions to situations and people and once you can learn how to watch your thoughts then you can start to control them and change the reactions from what may have been negative into a positive. It is easy to become carried away by our thoughts and then situations can escalate from something that really was nothing into huge mountains, by watching our thoughts we can at least try to keep them as mole hills!
You also attract thoughts with your own thought waves, for example love attracts love, hate attracts hate, so what you are thinking is so important as to what you want to surround yourself with. Become angels and not monsters, as we think so we become.
I will be off on my travels again for the next 6 or 7 weeks, some time for family, some time for introspection and time to watch my thoughts! I will also be taking an Ayurvedic course which I'm very excited about and hope to share my learnings with you when I'm back and connected again.
For now I would like to thank you all for allowing me to share this wonderful thing called yoga with you and wish you all have wonderful summers full of peace and love.
Looking forward to connecting with you all again in mid August,
for now shine brightly like the lights that you are and keep up the practice,
Om Om Shanti Om
