Yesterday while connecting with a client, I reached for one of my 'wisdom cards deck', this particular one was 'Mana Cards - The Power of Hawaiian Wisdom' - A beautiful deck gifted to me during a trip to Hawaii last year.
My client intuitively choose a card which was #4 - MANA, the essential energy for life. That energy/force that is neither good or bad, it just is, and it is everything...
As we explored deeper, MANA is also the representation of thought, mind and breath. As you breathe you think, as you think you breathe.
Why am I sharing this with you today?
Well, as life is constantly presenting itself into every moment, MANA is there ebbing and flowing constantly, so are we ebbing and flowing within our own individual and collective lives.
My question to you is, how are you embracing with MANA? How are you allowing your breath breathe you? kindly or nervously?
As the MANA card reminds us to mind our thoughts and our breath, and that wisdom reflects in the...
Being Present in all moments open the door to experiencing life within a sacred reality, the life of the soul and of other souls, the life that is emerging from within, the life of the Divine within time and space.

The awareness of tightness/tension being present, is the beginning of flexibility being created. When we feel this tightness in our bodies, our first instinct is usually to back away from it or avoid it. It is not comfortable and the mind almost immediately begins to feel distressed.
At this point the teacher usually reminds us to breathe into the tightness of the uncomfortable stretch we feel screaming back at us in our bodies. As we begin to breathe and allow the tightness to be there, something amazing begins to happen. The breath we're breathing begins to relax our mind and our instinctive re-activeness, and we begin to feel the body start to open up and let go of the tightness. As we allow ourselves to stay in the splits, we begin to discover...
