Let me tell you something, when your baby is sick or hurt or dealing with any illness it threatens your sanity. You can believe that.
Her daughter is going in for a procedure that will (hopefully) fix the issue and there is some understandable nervousness around this.
My student asked me to teach a class to help her cope with her emotions around this procedure and to help her daughter as well.
I have to say that deciding to give your daughter a yoga class designed to help her find strength and peace and healing and an open heart is brilliant...I am not sure I would have thought of that for my own kids (and, as you know, I am a yoga teacher)
Earlier this year when my own child was diagnosed with an auto immune disease, I did not seek out a yoga teacher, I did not take her to my yoga classes. I did eventually begin to re-introduce yoga and meditation concepts to her but it took some time and some processing and I have still not convinced my darling teenager it is a good thing for her. Its a process...it will come.
As moms we don't always know what the 'right' thing is. And even if we do know we don't always do the 'right' thing. I can't say for sure but I think this is one of those times where this mom knew in her heart what the right thing was and she did it. Way to go yoga mama.
Our hearts are a powerful energy center. Love, compassion, gratitude, understanding, true knowing...these things are all cultivated in our heart centers. If we can get quiet and still what do our hearts tell us? How much can we learn from listening? How much LOVE can we cultivate just by listening?
Take 20 breaths right now and in those 20 breaths get very quiet and still and listen to your heart.
