Trust in the perfect timing of the Universe

“By letting go it all gets done. The world is won by those that let go, but when you try and try, the world is beyond winning ” – Lao Tzu

Time flies, it seems to me like it was only few weeks ago that this year started, and yet there are only 14 days left on this 2013 as I write this (and probably only 13 or less as you read this 😉

Our perception of time is an interesting thing. We perceive time as a linear event, that keeps on moving forward and every day, every week, every month and year seem to be going faster and faster, and we just keep trying to catch up with its speed by constantly doing, doing and doing; sometimes trying to make things happen at a particular time and moment in which we think they should happen, but as you may have already experienced by now, things rarely ever seem to happen when we want them to, or when we think they should.

I was recently blessed with the opportunity of going to Los Angeles to take the seat of the student again and immerse myself in yoga studies with one of my favorite and beloved teachers: Noah Maze; who is offering an amazing 300 Teacher Training program that I have been dreaming of doing since last year. Taking part of any of his study programs has been a dream I was hoping to fulfill for the last 2 years; as I love his teaching style and always learn a whole lot with him, however, stepping away from my current commitments for extended periods of time was completely out of my reach for many different reasons; but amongst all just simply because it wasn’t the right time for me to do this before. While I had studied with him before, I had not been in any of his trainings for the last 3 years, during which time I have been putting into practice many things I had learned and developing many new skills that without my knowledge were the ones that were preparing me for this moment, and for this new challenge and chapter of my life.

At times, I have to admit that I felt discouraged, and lost the vision of the big picture, the big dreams and goals I am working for, and it seemed like being able to start a year long study program to deepen my yoga practice, knowledge and skills, was just completely out of my reach; but what I could not see during those moments of “desperation” and lack of faith, was that all of the situations I was going through in my daily life were the experiences I needed to live before I could be ready to live my dream. As I look back to the last 11 and a half months of this year, and to the last 2 years (the time I have been living in Miami) I am deeply grateful for every challenge I had to face and for every single connection I have made, for all the people I have met and all the friends I have made along the way.

Looking back, I can see clearly now that I would have not grasped/learned/taken/made the best out of this had I done it when I wanted to do it, at the time I was so desperately wanting for it to happen. It is always easier to understand things in retrospective; however, to me, this is just one more proof of the perfect synchronicity the Universe works under, and it has made a huge difference in my inner faith and trust in the benevolence of the mysterious works and ways of this wonderful Universe.

I also came back with an increased feeling and sense of appreciation for the life and routine I have here at home, and every single one of you who have been part of this process and part of my classes, you have all contributed to my journey in one way or another, and I am grateful to you for that.

As I process everything we were doing, learning and practicing, and do all my homework (which is a LOT 😉 I get extremely excited about seeing how all of this comes through in my regular classes and new projects I am endeavoring to do. I am currently working on re arranging my regular teaching schedule, to offer classes at more convenient times for those of you who have regular office hours and to be able to reach out to a wider community of people in a regular basis. I am excited for the new connections and friendships created within our awesome group of Teacher Training in LA, and I can’t wait to see what new opportunities unfold as we strengthen our bonds and knowledge, fully confident– this time around- that the seeds of the dreams I have been planting and that I continue to plant are growing at their own appropriate speed and are manifesting at their perfect time.

I will be sending out another note some time within the next 3 or 4 weeks to inform you about the schedule changes, as well as I will be adding another of my promised free yoga practice videos to my website. I am working on finding a right location with the proper light and audio settings needed to make a clear and nice video that you can watch and benefit from. For now, please note that my Tuesdays & Thursdays 10:00 am classes at Trio will no longer be offered after December 26th.

In the meantime, I hope you are enjoying the holiday season with your loved ones, and I invite you to take a look at what has happened and not happened during 2013, wishing that you bask in your experiences in a way that allows you to find gratitude and confidence in the process of how life is unfolding for you. Hope to see you on the mat this month, please look at the right hand side for the regular class schedule.

Happy Holidays! Happy Hanukkah! & Happy New Year!
