Yoga Meditation Benefits Our Still Small Voice

While yoga meditation benefits us in many ways, it’s easy to just focus on the physical, mental, or grand spiritual aspects. Yet, sometimes, we can achieve something even more useful from yoga and meditation. Sometimes, we can acquire a sense of peace and acceptance between ourselves and the world we inhabit. I ran across this post from Betty Alark at Yahoo Voices. I could very much relate to some of the emotions she described for herself when she was young. Her journey to fit herself into the world around her happened to lead her along the path of discovering yoga and meditation. She discovered that still small voice within herself and let it guide her through her journey through life.

Yoga Meditation Benefits Our Still Small Voice

At the age of 10 I sought something of interest that would cause me to feel connected while roaming around the planet. Being an introverted personality type left me isolated and distant from people. I was conceived of as a quiet, anti social person. So, people didn’t gravitate towards me.

Finding something to captivate my attention and divert it away from the world around me would be like finding a savior or a solace. Reading was one of my favorite pastimes and books were one of my favorite means of traveling to places I’d never been. To my surprise, one day I came across a book on yoga and meditation. I was captivated the moment I saw the picture of the man on the front of the book. My curiosity was piqued by his appearance and I wondered what yoga and meditation were. I decide to check it out.

Coming in contact with that book changed my life forever! Yoga and meditation became my daily practice from that point on. The different poses and positions took a lot of practice and commitment. However, it kept my interest so I stuck with it. I found myself becoming more flexible every day. I would literally witness myself twisting my body into poses that I had no idea my body could accomplish.

Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted — in body, mind, and heart — and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow — or we begin to flow more in our lives.
