Mindset of a Modern Day Warrior

The modern day warrior or spiritual warrior is one that challenges fears, lies, false belief and judgements that create suffering or unhappiness in his or her life. 
~The Four Agreements

I grew up in a loving, happy and peaceful home. At a young age, I started perfecting rhythmic gymnastics and I loved the form as a way to stay connected to my body, and to find expression in creative movement. But somewhere between practice, repetition and wearing a bodysuit, I got caught up in being perfect and performing. By the time I had hit my teens, I was a ball of anxiety and my thoughts ruled my every move or lack thereof. I was in fact a prisoner in my own body and I lived (existed) like that for years.

I eventually got to a point where I was DONE merely existing and that was the turning point in my journey where I started dabbling with yoga. My first thought of myself within the experience was: "I'm terrible at this AND I certainly don't like not knowing what I'm doing!" And my thought of the experience itself was: "that made me feel good in the end!" And after all isn't the whole point about FEELING good and supporting LIFE! And so began my love affair with this thing we call yoga and more importantly myself.

I realized, many years later, that many of my thoughts were robbing me of life. Even in the first ten years of practice I didn't get that! I was falling into some of the same habitual patterns of perfecting or performing the pose. I was doing yoga versus being yoga. At the heart of being a spiritual warrior is this understanding that we are not in control of anything outside of us. All we can control, are our thoughts, and our action/reaction in any given moment. And yet with having said that, we also have the power to transform and realign our thoughts to support ourselves and affirm the life we wish to live and create.

Thinking and speaking possibility into our life takes awareness and practice but it's worth it. It is one of the greatest contributions we can make to society: to be authentic, wholehearted and alive doing what we love, BEing who we are!

Awareness of your thoughts is the first step. Ask yourself if your thoughts and beliefs hold you back or do they enliven you? It's like the Rumi quote that I love so: awaken to yourself and don't fall back asleep! Have the courage of a warrior in discovering who YOU are and what your purpose is! Then, the physical practice of yoga can serve to build our resilience and willingness to learn a little everyday as a lifelong practice.
