Sunset Warrior – Yoga Is Your Superpower!

“That was her magic – she could still see the sunset, even on the darkest of dates.” – Atticus

Determination to see the sunset is my magic. Trusting in Spirit keeps hope afloat. ✨✨✨

How to stay positive and keep the faith when life seems like a shit-show? Seeing the atrocities in Afghanistan or clashes over Covid or feeling overwhelmed by daily everyday challenges, could tempt me to escape reality, and just say f*ck it!

Here’s where yoga is your super power:

  • Take a breath.
  • Activate your inner warrior.
  • Set your gaze on one spot, literally look at one spot.
  • Keep breathing until the pissed-off, “seeing red” state of mind shifts from heat-hot to neutral-cool…until your vision becomes clear.
  • Harness that passionate energy, fueled by your reaction to injustices and disappointments, and channel it towards making a difference, to propel an action which serves a purpose.

Spiritual Activist Ideas?

  • Raise awareness.
  • Educate yourself and others.
  • Peacefully Protest.
  • Petition.
  • Write.
  • Express.
  • Sit.
  • Pray.

What is your authentic way of speaking your truth and letting your spiritual warrior shine the light on what you feel needs to be noticed and awakened?

At the very least, this intentional pause can prevent regretful words or behaviors. Practice #ahimsa . Do no harm. 🙏🏽
