Day 12- Yoga youtube video

When i was just watching a “Yoga with Adrienne video. Adrienne talked about how millions of people all over the world are watching or have watched this video.
I saw in my imagination people from all over the world. I contemplated how useful yoga is to me as a tool that supports me and others. Yoga has been a solution to my issues. An Emotional, Mental, and “Spiritual” healer and true friend.
A gift of insight and clarity. Connecting the mind to the body. There’s a point where Adrienne said something about yoga is how we connect to the world. This is hot indigenous people thought. Everyone is sacred and has a part to play in the community. Yoga is sacred. Where you have to listen to yourself. You learn to take care of yourself.

I declare and decree that yoga is my strength.
Yoga is my grounding “technique”
Yoga and breathing connect myself to others.
Yoga connects me to the earth.
Where no one is more important than anyone else.

I commit myself to not underestimate the power of laying on my mat and breathing and using the earth as support.

Day 11-Psychology of abuse

Abuse is unfortunately so common. We’ve accepted it as “normal” and acceptable. Abuse is the absence of equality. In the movie The Shining we see that Danny is a victim of abuse of his father. Possible sexual too. We see this within satanic ritual abuse where even children are abused sexually physically and made into split personalities. Interestingly enough the cycle continues. Unless one can get help an stop it. We need more avenues for the healing of abuse within society.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to abuse

When and as i see myself going into abuse or accepting it.I stop and breathe. I ground myself and see that it is in fact unacceptable.

Day 10 – Nervous

Nervous: highly excitable; unnaturally or acutely uneasy or apprehensive.

Redefining Nervousness: The effect the internal dialogue has on the nervous system and the body.

Junior High is when i can remember first feeling nervous.Nervous about grades…aka in my eyes as my self worth. Grades I equated with self worth and popularity. Number of friends as well. I viewed classmates in Junior High and High school as a sort of hierarchy where i imagined the most popular classmates were like elite gods. Was this nervousness of my defensive ego or was it from my true self? It was mind created. Through my relationship to the mind through internal dialogue.

When and as i see myself biting my fingernails or doing nervous movements with my fingers i stop and breathe.

Day 9- Being Misunderstood

When i am misunderstood or i misunderstand another there is a difference in perception. A difference in ways of looking at a view point. The opposite of understanding.

When and as i see myself being misunderstood. I stop and breathe.

I see, realize, and understand that we all have different understandings of how the world works. how it was created. Who we are as identities and personalities and of cultural influence. The mind can play tricks on us if we don’t know how the mind works. We’re all dreaming our own dream so to speak.It’s like a memory which is dreamlike.

Day 8- Forgetfulness

Forgetfulness. Stress,anxiety, and can cause forgetfulness. What is there to forget? What do i forget? Most importantly the most harmful thing to forget is identity. Who you are.Who I am. Who am i? With learning we forget things that we’ve been taught. Information so to speak. With martial arts its pure education and learning. Sometimes i forget what was just demonstrated. Until I see it repeated then i see something I missed and or forgot. Same thing with life. We forget what we take for granted. We forget are good. We forget all the books, videos, tools,and information we absorbed.If we are to live fully, we mustn’t let the past memories hold us down. We must rise.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to forget who I am.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to forget to breathe.

I commit myself to ask myself who i am as my starting point.
I commit myself to find out if i do what really matters.

Day 7 Inferior

The feeling of inferiority is like I’m less in cleverness,smartness, intelligence,expression,looks,humor, clothes,jobs,education,finances, toys,technological consoles,games, and gadgets. As well as the belief of being less popular. Like I see this within myself when i was in elementary,junior high, and high school. I would equate my self worth/self esteem with grades. I still catch myself doing the same with quantity of friends. But it’s not about quantity of friends its about the quality.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to hold onto guilt
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to believe i have to suffer a cycle of suffering to achieve this fleeting fantasy because of the be-lie-f im not good enough.

I see, realize, and understand that inferiority is just a mind made fear. A fictitious story.

Day 6- Crying

Sadness has come into my being. On the outside i appear that all is well. However,internally there is wars going on. The question I will ask is what are these feelings of uncontrollable crying about? Well specifically they’re about loss. The loss of friends in my life. The loss of family members in my life. The loss of my childhood. The loss of jobs. The loss of “the past” and the pain that goes with it. Sometimes the crying is the frustration of stress. Sometimes the crying is sadness from the words i never said to my loved ones. So mainly its about the shit i hold in. Other times i cry because i feel so bad about how another person made me feel.Sometimes it feels as if its just cleansing my soul. I get teary eyed alot…not emotionally but from allergies,pollution, and sinus fuckery. Its very strange but for me and where im at crying in front of people who support me is my courage. You will hear another side of me you never knew existed. My true self=my vulnerable self. My false self is my shell.

I forgive myself for not accepting and allowing myself to be seen crying.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not show any weakness

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to sabotage my relationship to self and others by holding in everything. Holding in words, thoughts, actions, and emotions.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not cry in front of people, when crying in front of people can be an act of courage where im afraid to let out the sadness in grief in public. I believe if i cried in front of people who cared about me they would probably get closer because they can see how much im really hurting. Yes. If im honest with myself. There is hurt. Yes its healthy to express it out of my body. But me holding it in from my observation,DISTANCES or HIDES me from people who care about me. I tend to be closed off in my shell and not let people in and see me. Because im afraid they’re going to make me feel bad about myself.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to be depressed when i do isolate myself. Its that the isolation actually IS depressing. Therefore the solution is to get out and do something.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to not speak through my sadness and tears to get it out.

I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to tell myself toughen up be a man dont cry.

When and as i see myself going into isolation and becoming depressed. I stop and breathe.
