Happy Spiritual Sunday! This week's theme is to use yoga as a way to open you up spiritually to all sides of the spectrum. It is easy to see from your point of view, but your only one part of the spectrum. You have to take all sides into the equation. Everyone has faults and defense mechanisms. When we feel as if we are being challenged and not being heard then it is hard for us to open up.
When you engage in practices like yoga it opens up your mind's eye and connection to all living things. You realize that we are all connected and separation is a result of the ego. If you're not into yoga then find some other practice that will still your mind and benefit your body. I personally feel good after a challenging workout or a long walk in nature. The idea is just to quiet your mind so your soul can hear. Once you are centered then you can communicate your truth.
You don't have to agree with the person's point of view, but you have to honor their reasons. Extend compassion to them and allow for solutions to come about. It may take time, but spirit supports us when we are living from our hearts. You can even do yoga together with those who you disagree with. It might lead to all parties letting the disagreement fade away. Everything doesn't have to be resolved in a long hard dialogue. Your presence is powerful and if it radiates love then that is enough to dissolve fearful attachments.
It takes a leader to apologize even if they were right. Sometimes being nice is the right way. See past the person's surface personality and into their divine being. Everyone is facing a battle in life and at one point you needed understanding so extend to a fellow being and it will return to you. A simple "I love you" can do wonders. You are learning to love unconditional and it can be uncomfortable because the ego doesn't like to appear weakened. That is okay because you are more than your ego and beyond that cloud of judgement lies a beautiful soul.
When you feel resistance then go out and stretch. You can put on some meditation sounds to bring about calmness. Then with every breath you inhale allow that to represent solutions and with every exhale allow that to represent problems. You are more stronger to resolve conflict than you think. Stop fearing the worse and call on spirit to help you. Know that within your soul lies a multitude of healing for yourself and others. Let it out and watch outcomes shift to suit all involved.
