I have learned so much as the months and days have passed from the beginning of the journey, wanting to create a special time and place for fellow women to focus on their spirituality. A time to connect to one's self and Higher Power.
Meditation and Yoga Nidra have always been something I earnestly sought after but could never remain awake. I chuckle to myself because my Higher Power has a good sense of humor. He has placed me as the guide, so of course I will be awake! I have learned so much about both of these practices. I feel calmer, more centered and filled with love and gratitude. What a surprise gift.
The biggest surprise was when I started doing more self study on the Niyamas and Yamas. Sharing my personal experience with the group as a way to offer some alternative guide to their meaning. My greatest gain has been Non-Attachment. My Sankalpa or Intention has changed from asking for things to stating "I am Enough" "I am Whole" "I am Healed". The results are always perfect, just as they are meant to be. My Sankalpa remains constant.
