There is a concept in yoga called "setting an intention". I really struggled with this when I first found yoga. Setting an intention consists of thinking of a problem, or a goal at the start of your practice and then set it aside while you move through your practice. Or even more bizarre, to send someone else "the energy you create through your practice". I tended to shy away from any teacher that brought such things up. To me, yoga was and is a science. I didn't want to hear any of that mumbo-jumbo.
Fast-forward a couple of years....
Upon much reflection, and research, I have discovered that setting an intention is a legitimate way to retrain or refocus your brain. We are creatures of habit and when we bring our focus repeatedly to setting goals or solving problems or even sending someone else energy, we start to build new pathways for change.
How it started making sense to me......
The science of yoga teaches that everything in the universe is connected through vibrations and light. The science of quantum mechanics agrees, observing that it is impossible to completely separate the observer from what is being observed. That discovery was made almost 100 years ago, and they're still trying to figure it out.
I've decided I don't mind that they can't explain it. I've noticed in my own life that like attracts like. What you send out comes back. What you give, you get. <3
"How can I improve my life today? If I can't improve my own life, how can I improve the life of someone else?"
Like Ron Popeil says "Set it and forget it" :) The answer will come to you.
See you tomorrow xoxoxoxo
