Life in all of its splendour can be unpredictable, hectic and sometimes completely out of our control. It is up to each individual to deal with the adversities of life with compassion, patience and grace. Living life with a brave and open soul can be done in many different ways. Being mindful and patient with the process of life lessons that ebb and flow is a daily practise. Sometimes taking a moment to just take a deep breath in is all we need while some days it may take more. Practices such as yoga also deeply cleanse and awaken your spirit and just make you feel great overall.
Finding Peace in Meditation
Preserving our free spiritedness, confidence and love for life may be challenging at times. This is why it’s important to know and trust yourself with meditation being one of the best ways to achieve that. Finding the peace within yourself will allow you to continue on your path and keep your spirit alive. It keeps us gentle and accepting when life could potentially make us hard. The beautiful thing about meditation is we really can make it whatever we want with the core priority of keeping yourself centred. You can play gentle sounds in the background or even listen to guided meditation. Light candles and adorn yourself with gemstones that assist in your practices. Many gemstones act as a means of relaxing you or protecting you while you sit in contemplation. Meditation should really be something you want to do because it makes you feel good. There shouldn’t be any struggle but more of a nurturing of your body, mind and soul. So use whatever props necessary to make meditation something you just can’t wait to do. Think of it as moments to spoil your soul.
The ancient practice of yoga has countless benefits for both the mind and body. After a yoga session, we are relaxed in the mind and limber in the body. This creates a sense of mindfulness within us that we take throughout our day. As we breathe in cool air, we welcome positivity and oxygen to the muscles. We mindfully breathe out hot air and anything negative in our psyche. Our energy is restored and our beautiful inner selves shine. There is often a mixture of spirituality in the mix of yoga. It is non-competitive and although there is much support in the room from others, this journey of yoga is your own.
Discovering your inner boho child
With your body and mind being nurtured, it’s easy to keep your passion for life at an optimum. Part of any boho spirit is the need and want to create beauty in your life and then transfer it to everyone you meet. It’s important to feed the soul with nurturing moments every day. When you’re good to yourself, your cup flows over with energy and positivity. This gives you the opportunity to help others around you. Being good to your body with activities like yoga as well as to your mind with meditation allows you to be who you are. You’ll never lose your child-like perspectives on life.
