In my practice today, I 'infused' each sun salutation with an intention--something I want to manifest in my life, in my being: Patience, mindfulness, compassion, love, peace...you get the idea.
For me, it was a great way to raise my awareness to the seed of each that I have within me just waiting to be tapped into, just waiting to be called forth.
When saluting peace, I took my mind to a peaceful center, imagined what peace felt like in the body, how peace might move, how peace might breathe--I became peace.
When saluting compassion, I invited it into my being--I imagined two individuals who have hurt me recently. Both represent periods I'm trying to resolve within me so that I may forgive and move forward. It's trickier than I thought it might be but I'm really open to the lesson here. So I took my mind to compassion--I saw their humanness, their fallibility and recognized the 'them' in me.
I've been very frazzled lately and my practice today was a welcome alignment of mind, body and spirit.
To 'infuse' your practice is to summon forth the seeds of potential inside of you and birth them into reality, into presence.
