Passion for Life By Silvia Mordini

Did you wake up today loving your life?

Don’t you want to wake-up filled with energy and enthusiasm?
.
Are you doing things because you love to do them or because you feel like you should do them? What percentage of the time would you say you live like that? Well, if you are spending more of your time doing stuff because you feel like you have to instead of wanting to, then you’ve discovered a simple formula for misery.
.
Take the first step to get clear on what “sparks JOY” by asking yourself “what are you passionate about?” What stokes enthusiasm so much so that you can feel it in your body, whether it’s a smile on your face or sitting up a little taller in your seat. This helps you define the purpose of your passion.
.
Second step is write it down.
.
Now you may ask, why write it if we can just think about it? Because science tells us that by writing out your goals on a piece of paper you send a red flag to your subconscious mind that these thoughts are more important than the other 59,999 ones you’ll have today! It gives the other thoughts directions and where your energy goes it grows.
.
This also helps you to filter out what is unimportant so you can focus first on what’s most important. You will enjoy life more fully if you stop focusing on the minor stuff and figure out what you want to major in life. The key thing to keep in mind is that you can have fun while you’re progressing along your path. You can reclaim the joy of waking up each day excited about your life!
.
So ask yourself right now: “Where are you going, what path are you on; Are you excited about the direction? If I could choose to make any adventure which one would you do next?”
.
Have you always dreamed of doing yoga on the beach in Bali? Or maybe you’ve dreamed of living under the Tuscan sun in Italy or to challenge yourself climbing the beautiful red rocks of Moab or surfing in Costa Rica? Then today journal about what lights up your life with passion. Plan your life’s next big adventure and make it happen. Stop holding back from what you really want to experience!
.
And from this passion for life you will be transformed or as Pantanjali says in the Yoga Sutras, “When you are inspired by some great purpose all of your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world!” Be the cause of your own future happiness! Start planning the next wonderful adventure doing what you love!
.
Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia Mordini.

5 Ways to Be More Generous by Silvia Mordini

5 Ways to Be More Generous

As a result of practicing yoga, I have changed the way I think about generosity. I have learned to give without expectation and to always remain mindful of the quality of my generosity.   Generosity in yoga is an interesting learning based partly on two of the five Yamas:

It means the opposite of taking (Asteya) whereby we share freely with a focused quality effort. Generosity implies looking at life through a prism of abundance instead of scarcity. In yoga, this is known as Aparigraha: there is more than enough for everyone.

As Rumi says, “In generosity and helping others: be like the river. In compassion and grace: be like the sun.”

5 Ways to Be More Generous

Unconditional generosity, giving, and helping others is from a heart of unconditional loving kindness. Here below are suggestions for how to be more generous in daily life.

1. Give more time.

How Stressed Out are You? By Silvia Mordini

How Stressed Out are You?

Have you ever noticed a low level of anxiety constantly gnawing away inside you? Do you find yourself clenching your jaw, grinding your teeth, fidgeting, seeking meaningless distraction, anything just to handle the stress or get away from the tension you feel just being you?   Yoga calls this Dukha. It means suffering, imbalance, despair, anguish, anxiety, irritation, uncertainty and more. You get the idea.  If you feel Dukha, you are not alone. Despite the fact we have more comforts and material possessions, more freedom and more mobility than any people in modern history, Americans are awash in Dukha. As George Carlin put it, “the paradox of our time in history is we have more….” (I’ll share more about this later.)

How Dukha Impacts Us On All Levels

We all know that stress can have a huge impact on how we live day-do-day. It affects our mood, our social relationships, our sleep pattern and diet, .

‪#‎AlchemyofYoga‬: How to Live an INSPIRED Life: Yoga is about wholeness, health, and vital living. It is about a life inspired in body, mind, and spirit. Through movement, meditation, discussion, and journaling, we will explore the vast resources related to How to Live an INSPIRED Life by focusing on the last three ‪#‎Niyamas‬ or personal practices that comprise the Alchemy of Yoga. from the Yoga Sutras (Chapter 2, Verse 1), “Tapas svadhaya ishvara pranidhana kriya yoga,” they transform us on three levels through Physical, Mental, and ‪#‎Spiritual‬ ‪#‎Alchemy‬. These are necessary for bringing about real, lasting change and cultivating inner happiness and spiritual bliss.

Experience the alchemy of the five elements, the four directions, and the chakra system as an inner and outer map of transformation. These are archetypal and energetic maps that are as metaphorical as they are very real and embodied. Everything we see, taste, touch, feel, and do can be interpreted through the gateway of the elements, directions, and chakras. We will learn how to tap into these sacred relationships and align ourselves with their alchemy in order to gain insight into healing our world. Learn more here.

Third Chakra Mantra by Yoganonymous

Third Chakra ‪#‎Mantra‬:
-May I express who I am without fear

“We have no reason to harbor any mistrust against our world, for it is not against us. It has terrors, they are our terrors. If there are dangers at hand, we must try to love them. And if only we arrange our life according to that principle which counsels us that we must always hold to the difficult, then that which now still seems to us the most alien will become our most intimate and trusted experience.” – Rainer Maria Rilke

“If this chakra isn’t working properly you may you feel as though the world is against you and everything is out of your control.”
– By Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach published by YOGANONYMOUS
