URU in May

Balance & Align May 2017 Balance & Align In Yogic philosophy, the universe is created from a fundamental substance, Prakriti or Shakti. From Shakti, the 3 gunas, emerge forming the essential aspects of all of nature that underlie all matter, life and mind. The 3 Gunas are qualities, threads or primal tendencies. Rajas-energy, activity, turbulence, passion, change, motion Tamas-inertia, dullness, heavy, darkness, sleepiness Sattva-balance, harmony, clarity, intelligence, virtue, rhythm We are constantly balancing these energies to find a sattvic way of living. This month, notice ways to balance your life and align with your Self. Slow down, nurture, and take care of yourself when you are feeling overly extended or full. Take deep breaths and know that saying “no” is often kind and true and will create balance. Challenge yourself, move your body, and engage your mind when you are feeling sluggish or low in energy. Notice if being tired has become a habit and allow yourself to align with more energy. Most importantly, allow yourself to come into balance and align with your truest, deepest Self. When you align with the flow of your deepest Self, support shows up where needed. Please know that you are loved, beautiful, valued and important.
