22 Aug “MAN CONQUERS THE WORLD BY CONQUERING HIMSELF.” ZENO
A New Chapter
My journey of self-healing started almost a decade ago when I got separated and eventually divorced. There was a lot that I had to unlearn in order to find myself and connect with the source of joy in my heart. I had no idea where or how to start but life guided me to a yoga studio, a beautiful one in the heart of Easton Pennsylvania that it’s called “Easton Yoga.”
It was there that I learn to chant, the basics of yoga, meditation and most importantly, the power of vulnerability and self-love. Yoga guided my life in a new direction and I eventually left my cushy corporate job to become a massage therapist. It was this transition that helped me connect even deeper with the purpose my soul was screaming very loud: “help people help themselves.”
There is something very powerful when we take charge of our stories, our decisions and even our mistakes. For a long time I was doubting myself because subconsciously “I thought I couldn’t make a good decision based on my failed marriage.” I was internalizing that failure into my life and I was afraid to make decisions. Procrastination started to root into my life and I kept postponing major decisions like going back to school and pursue my master’s degree. It was in the midst of Covid-19 that I needed to do something in order to keep my sanity and this chaotic situation pushed me to stop breaking agreements with myself. It was time to make myself a priority and take charge of my life.
My intention sharing this story is to memorialize in time and space this moment and all the work that brought me here today. I am grateful for my mistakes, my teachers, and all teachings that helped me regain trust in myself to co-create the life of my dreams. I am enrolled in Acupuncture school and this new journey starts next week.
Wherever you are in your journey, remember to make yourself a priority and keep all agreements with yourself. It took me a long time to make the switch in my subconscious mind but it is never too late to become the protagonist of your own life. Stop postponing happiness and trust that you are divinely guided every step of the way.
