Things to Come

(I do not own this photo, nor do I take credit for taking it.)

Sometimes I over think things.  I spend more time analyzing what the outcomes could be that I prevent myself from achieving.  My sometimes cautious nature has kept me out of trouble, that's for sure, but perhaps it has held me back more than I ever thought.  Wednesday, something great happened.  I was at 630am yoga with Jenna and I got in to two poses I have never gotten in to before.  For those of you who don't know, I broke my spine a little less than five years ago.  After surgery, recovery and physical therapy, I tend to stay clear of anything that intimidates me- sports wise.  Such as certain yoga poses.  I doubt my strength and thus always take the more gentle version of poses.  Well, something inside of me said, just go for it.  So, I did.  I focused on my breath, I didn't judge myself, or panic, I just went for it.  While hovering in Crow, I thought, this must mean something.  If you have ever seen the sandlot, you will get this reference- I felt like it was an omen, like Benny busting the guts out of a baseball.  I wasn't sure what was coming, but I knew something was.  Well... some really exciting things are happening now!  I can't talk about them just yet, but some pretty great life changes are about to unfold.  As soon as I can talk about them, I will!   

How many people hold themselves back the way that I had?  Is there something you want to try but haven't gone for yet?  What are you waiting for or what is preventing you from trying?  


  1. Keeper of the Sacred Law


    Crows are the keepers of the Sacred Law
    and to have a Crow totem is very powerful.

    Personal Integrity are your watchwords and your guide in Life.
    If you have a Crow totem, your prime path
    is to be mindful of your opinions and actions.
    You must be willing to walk your talk,
    to speak your truth and to know your life's mission.

    Crow is a omen of Change. 
    Crow lives in the void and has no sense of time,
    therefore, it sees past, present and future simultaneously.
    Crow merges both light and dark, both inner and outer.
    It is the totem of the Great Spirit and must be respected as such.

    They are symbols of creation and spiritual strength.
    Look for opportunities to create and manifest the magic of life.
    Crows are messengers calling to us
    about the creation and magic that is alive in the world today
    and available to us.

  2. I tend to always hold myself back, I am a hugeee scaredy cat! I can't wait to see your big changes soon, I have some of my own too! Yay for fighting our fears!
