What is Yoga 308

Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 271 - Hooked by an Energy Vampire

Today I took a Yin Yoga Class at Full Circle with Kristen Schneider.  I love Kristen's Yin classes, always been a big fan.  Today however I could not keep still.  I was very fidgety.  Towards the end of the class I did find a comfort zone when I was in my forward bend with a little adjustment from Kristen.  Sometimes it take awhile for me to get back into the zone.

I have noticed that I starting to release more and more in my chest, shoulders, and hamstrings.  It feels good to have the muscles relax, but I also feel some emotions release.

I try my best to live a drama free life.  I swear though that if I hid in a cave drama would find me.  Life puts you to the test and tries to drag you into these unnecessary dramas.  I was hooked today.  I have people in my life that live off of drama.  They thrive off the attention from others.  Over the last week I had someone throwing jabs at me trying to bring me into their drama filled world.  Yesterday she continued and did something that finally got a rise out of me.  I was suckered and fell into her trap.  When I complained about how I was treated it brought on a shit storm of drama.  Looking back I have learned I should have just continued to let her stay in her drama filled life and ignored the whole thing.

It is hard to stay focused in life when there are energy vampires looking to suck the life out of you.  The best advice I have learned today is just let them be.  This gets difficult when they are waiting at your door and following you around.  At one point I felt like I needed to stand up for myself.  At one point I felt like I needed to get rid of this person.  When I did try to fight back it just added more drama, and this is what the energy vampires feed off of.  In the end they win, because all it does is leave you drained and tired of the unnecessary drama.

In our life we always assume that we are the positive person and that others are negative around us.   We need to constantly look deep inside ourselves and ask ourselves how we can look at something in a different light or perspective.

I see people who think the world is against them.  They do not trust the world or think they are going to harmed in some way by others.  Jesus Christ could not even convince this person that they would bring no harm to them.  These people need to stop blaming the world and look deeper inside them self.  Stop, smell the roses, ask how you can help the world, and expect nothing in return.
