Closing a Door in Your Life
A lot of my friends say I am an overachiever who is always inspired to keep chasing my dreams. I can’t remember when I wasn’t “trying” out a new venture or hobby. I learned early in life that if you want something you have to focus and work for it. I can really say that over my adult life I have worn many hats. Each hat closer to the one that I can see staying with me for the rest of my life. These past 10 years have been a very trying time on my health and I have learned to listen more to life’s messages about my career and body.
Now that I am in my 50’s I have seen a shift in a more meaningful way of living and thinking. I question myself by asking, “what is truly important to me” and “how do I want to feel”. The body is so amazing; if we really give it a chance it will tell us exactly what we need to know. This has given me a sense of peace in my thoughts and decisions.
As I start November, I had to close the door to a dream of having my own physical space in Sama Tree. It would have been a full year this October that I opened it. On Halloween, I totally moved out from my special little yoga space that I truly loved being in. Covid has played a major role in my decision to release the space. Having this space gave me confirmation that what we manifest can truly come to life. It also made me realize that before manifesting I really need to look at the “truth” to what it is I want and why. The intention behind what we manifest is so important and I am so grateful to have tools to help me get clarity.
Closing the door to my physical space was sad but, I was fortunate enough to “try” and to have my space for the timeframe I did. Sama Tree actually came to life in 2017, a few years before my physical space. Sama Tree was my intention for my offerings and it still is. Maybe one day it can be a physical space again but right now I am at peace with it. When people practice with me my intention is for those to feel the sharing of my heart through the practices that I offer. Soulful, embodied practices that help us to awaken to our inner knowing and peace. This is what Sama Tree is for me and I choose to share what I can with heartfelt gratitude in the avenues available to me and right now you can find me teaching online (check out my calendar for offerings).
I want to thank those who have supported me and I look forward to more opportunities to share as the future unfolds.
