Nick of time

I was practicing Yoga a couple weeks back with my dear friend & fellow ROCKSTAR-YOGI, Brent.  I always enjoy his classes because they are challenging, but yet so spiritual...his assists are the talk of the town...you do not want him to leave your mat once he's got the china gel soothing into your muscles.  He practices what he preaches.  He believes in YOGA and its wonders and you can tell because he lives YOGA in his life and has been so kind to me in my darkest hour, so thanks Brent-darling...

Near the resting phase of the class, he routinely does sarvangasana aka "shoulder stand"...its cheeky because everybody always sort of gasps at that time and he knows it...he rolls his eyes lovingly as we all inch up hesitantly...this last class however was different for me...I could have stayed up for an hour as opposed to 35 breaths...he played a song I hadn't heard in a long time, "Nick of Time" by Bonnie Rait...it reminded me of my mom because she used to play Bonnie Raits cassette tape in her car when I was growing up. 

My gut got a little tender and tears started to seap...not sad tears but tears of release, forgiveness, hope, re-enlightenment, re-center, re-build sort of tears.  Tears of FAITH and trusting I'm exactly where I am meant to be.  The beat and the words soothed me and made me feel strong and empowered...maybe the love I had found in the nick of time...was my own self-love and the absolute gratitude from the immense support of others around me...read the lyrics and see what it brings up for you...better yet...take a listen?  http://youtu.be/es60unGCGKw

"A friend of mine she cries at night, and she
Calls me on the phone
Sees babies everywhere she goes and she
Wants one of her own
She's waited long enough she says
And still he can't decide
Pretty soon she'll have to choose and it tears her up inside
She's scared scared she'll run out of time

I see my folks, they're getting old, I watch their bodies change
I know they see the same in me, And it makes us both feel strange
No matter how you tell yourself, It's what we all go through
Those eyes are pretty hard to take when they're staring' back at you
Scared you'll run out of time

When did the choices get so hard?
With so much more at stake
Life gets mighty precious when there's less of it to waste
Hummmm Scared to run out of time

Just when I thought I'd had enough
All my tears were shed
No promise left unbroken
There were no painful words unsaid
You came along and showed me
How to leave it all behind
You opened up my heart again and then much to my surprise

I found love, Love in the Nick of Time
I found love, Love in the Nick of Time
I found love, Love in the Nick of Time"

Then Brent connected the pose with the song, how we are all so afraid to RUN OUT OF TIME...but we still let fear hold us back so often...so much more at stake, I guess, right?

We are all so afraid to run out of time so embrace that fear by LIVING IN THE NOW...being present, giving presence...open up your heart and lead with it...take chances so you don't ever wonder...in the end, it always works out how it's intended.  Get EXCITED for what is in store for YOU!  I promise there's so much if you let it! 

Great heart opening poses:

UP DOG, CAMEL, WHEEL, TRAINGLE, WILD THING, & HERO are some of my favorite.  You can feel the release, the love, and the tension subside...get on your mat and love it out! Namaste.
