April Newsletter: Living Out Loud

Dearest Friends,

The new season spurs within us a desire to embark on a journey of self-reflection and rebirth, like a bit of internal spring cleaning. We offer this guided meditation, provided by Kula’s psychotherapist, Carie Winchell, LMHC, CMHS, as an inaugural exercise along that journey.

As we move into Spring… What is it that you have learned about yourself this winter? What have you discovered? What calls to you at this time as spring nears?  What is it that you desire to express out into the world? What gifts are you ready to live fully so the world can benefit?

When we are expressing our true divine nature the entire world benefits. Healing will happen inside you and for all those around you. Even the stranger who passes by will feel your brightness.

What holds you back from living out loud? Go deep within and listen. Be still. It will reveal itself to you.

Now….watch it all fall away.  All your fears and doubts. All the what ifs… Let them go.

Now see yourself living out loud. You are completely free. Expressing your True Self to its fullest! Like the budding flowers and the freshly grown grass and the new bright leaves. Like the butterfly being born, like the hummingbird dancing with joy,  like the dragonfly shimmering in flight.

See yourself free from the limits of the personality. The One you once knew. Feel your soul as you walk through the world. Hear it calling you to live with passion and the awe of a child. Every day a new adventure!  Hear the new life being born within and without as you move into Spring and free yourself from the old.

We hope you find this meditation as nourishing and inspiring as we do, and we look forward to sharing with you again on the mat soon.

With joy and love,
Your Kula
