Strong, Still and Balanced Like a Tree

 

Tree Asana: This yoga pose can be your strength in life. Stand tall in mountain, arms at your side. Slide you foot up on the side of your calf, or higher if you can onto your thigh. Now raise your arms over your head like the branches of a tree. Stay here for about 3-5 minutes on each side of your body.

Trees softly sway with their strong trunks, heavy bark and moveable arms

Standing Strong

When I stand strong in tree pose, I try to picture the strength of a tree that also has some flexibility, because without some flexible moments in your life, you cannot be a balanced soul.
Begin to think of yourself as a tree, swaying in the wind, with flexible branches that yield but do not break.

When you move through life, you need to be strong, centered, balanced and mindful of yourself.

 

Being Mindful

Become mindful of yourself and your connection with nature. The trees, birds and sunshine surround you each day. Even on the cold winter days, take a walk to find peace in the wonders of nature.

Be a spirit of nature and its beauty. Your inner spirit guide calls you each day to live like it is your last. Breathe like it is your last breath, deeply, all the way down to your lungs, walk like it is the last path you will take, and love others like you have never loved before.

Time will pass, do all you need to do

As time passes, do not have any regrets that you did not do something you really wanted to, do it now.

Put a wonderful smile on your face, listen to your inner wisdom and find what you need.

Your needs will surface, and then you must go with the flow of your path wherever it may lead.

Becoming like the trees, strong, centered, balanced and mindful of living life completely
