[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] It lines up

Preparing the heart - unplug and ask

Ask -What do I need? What's in my way? What needs to go?

The biting of the big apple continues. I signed up to do a workshop
called "The Gift Of Your Divine Storm" on Friday evening. True to form I
didn't ask any questions I just said yes to going as it was right up my
alley and being conducted by Mastin Kipp. I read a lot of his stuff and his
work resonates with me as his mantra is to be self- approved and love

When I got the details, the instructions were clear, we would be Kundalani
yoga and meditation and then onto the workshop! I had some reservations,
yoga? for real? Before a workshop?

During the day I had to be at the bank doing business stuff around my
books, setting up accounts and all that fancy stuff, that took forever and
I was running super late, then I remembered Eckart Tolle - make a friend
with the present, don't fight it, you are late and accept that, I did and
it calmed me down

The energy in the room was electric, 200 people doing yoga, which is
supposed to be something quiet but the vibes were so high! After the yoga
some left and we were into the coaching sessions! My best lesson there was
to know and define your own rules for your life because when you live by
other people's rules you will always be playing catch up and may never
reach there!

Do you have any standards for your life? Can you define what your own rules
for your own life are?

And the thing is when you start experimenting with something new what
happens? Sometimes you may not get it right the first time! And be ok with
that! When a baby starts walking they fall, its' your rules, get back up,
do something, try again! I loved that lesson and wanted to share it with

Make your own rules and standards! It's really OK to!

Off again for another bite!
