Exceed Yourself To Find Your Exceeding Self

Exceed Yourself To Find Your Exceeding Self

What would be possible if you step off the edge in every aspects of your Life?

Forget the fears, the buts, and what ifs? What would be possible?

Write it down.

And considering what's possible, what is stopping from stepping off the edge?

Fear.

When we are at our edge, our old stories will come in and tell us not to leap off.

The general feeling is if we back off - it’s bad; we are weak, we are not good enough. So what's the point right? Then again, we've not tried it, how do we know.

We don't know, so why not, take one foot off and see what comes up.

This week we explore what it means to exceed ourselves in order to find our exceeding self which is the 4th principle of the Eight Universal Principles for Stepping up to the Edge by Baron Baptiste taken from his book -“Journey into Power”.)

The learning here is to be ok with the decision not to step over the edge, and instead stay with whatever is coming up and surrender with easefulness.

And if you do step off the edge, can you move forward without brute force but with kind determination.

Growth Is the Most Important Thing There Is

Growth Is the Most Important Thing There Is

Where in your Life are you staying in your comfort zone?

The thing is what's wrong with staying in the comfort zone?

Nothing!

It's safe. It's safer than not knowing what will happen beyond the comfort zone. What's beyond the comfort zone is scary! Because there is uncertainty and you're scared of what you don't know.

But what's possible beyond the comfort zone? Beyond your Edge?

Growth.

And the opportunity to test your secret super power of Courage.

The 3rd principle of Baron's Baptiste's "8 Universal Principles of Stepping up to the Edge" is about acknowledging that Growth is the Most important there is and that in order to grow, you need to accept your Fears as it is. Your fears are stopping from what you want to make happen in your life.

Can You Remember Who You Were Before The World Told You Who You Should Be

Can You Remember Who You Were Before The World Told You Who You Should Be

Stumbled upon this quote by Charles Budowski via Thrive Global 
Reposted on on my personal IG but I think it deserves more attention and more thought.

When did we forget to play? When did we start caring what the world things of us?

In Baptiste Yoga, we are given access to discover the Lie we tell ourselves since young, which we believed was the Truth of ourselves.⠀

My lie was I’m a bad girl and I’m not good enough.⠀

And i’ve been working on discovering the ME - before the Lie took over - the ME that is whole and complete. The ME that is full of courage and loving kindness.

The ME before I gave a DAMN about what other people think of me.

Be in the Now and You’ll Know How

Be in the Now and You’ll Know How

Are you with me or are you not with me?

I’m committed to living and breathing the 8 Principles for Stepping up to the Edge from Baron’s book - “Journey into Power"; one Principle at a time.

Are you willing to Step up to Your Edge?

The 1st principle ask that you be NOW HERE in the present moment and to let go of the stories in your head, which brings you to NOWHERE.

And this post delves the 2nd principle which gives you access to answering the HOW - if you are NOW HERE, and then HOW?

So starts my journey into sharing more about Baptiste Yoga and how it has impacted my life. And following up from last weeks on post on 8 Universal Principles of Stepping up to the Edge, taken from Baron Baptiste’s book “Journey into Power.” Every other week, I’ll explore each principle and share my personal insights and quotes from the book. 

In Baptiste Yoga, there are 3 practices - Asana, Meditation and Inquiry. By sharing my story, I am in Inquiry, which is an access to discovery and new possibilities. 

I invite you to be in discovery of what's possible for you by joining me in being Now Here in in your life, practice and teaching one week.
