This week I did a meditation with my yoga students called the Meditation to Overcome Self-Animosity. Self-animosity means all those blocks and habits we have in place to sabotage ourselves. Some of them are well known to ourselves, and others are not.
One way we sabotage ourselves is by trying to achieve our new year goals in January. We metaphorically beat ourselves with a stick and when we can't control ourselves, then we give up. Goals are funny things though. They don’t seem to like being achieved by being forced. They like persistence and patience. We want to achieve our goals effortlessly and immediately, never mind any of this waiting for it craic!
Take our new year goals. We lay the foundations in the first two weeks January by setting the goal. Then we have another eleven months to build the pathway to success. We research different ways of doing things and mould our own path. It's a mix of logic and intuition. One step at a time, even when it feels like we're walking in the dark, helps us achieve our goals.
This month is a great month for all types of classes as people rush to achieve their goals. Sticking with those classes until June is really how people achieve their goals. By showing up week in and week out for your goals, you see them manifest.
