Is to…

Welcome in

the protection

The mighty,

Preserving the life force

to stay the course

of the journey



For your consideration:

Protection is often defined and described as shielding from harm, and keeping oneself or others safe.

What about living in a way that builds-in protection, whether that be physically or emotionally? Before our more recent trend toward group classes in the United States such as “Power Yoga” that has turned ancient spiritually enhanced (along with body-based) practices into a more modernized “high intensity workout,” yoga traditionally has served for millennia as a way to bolster our life force, our very source energy – all in a more holistic way.  (For more on this, see an earlier edition of Soul Notes, here.)

For me, mantras and mudras combined with physical movements help protect me and in turn help me to bring my full energy to my life, colleagues, loved ones, and the greater community I serve.

Okay, your turn:

What say you? Which approach do you take in your own life? What works best for you? Have you been experimenting with different approaches to preserve, replenish, and refresh your physical and emotional health?

    Yoga is also my go to, although I haven’t been in a while. Journaling, painting, cooking, gardening, and cleaning are all ways I can feed my spirit. Any time spent with animals is particularly replenishing.
