Before teaching yesterday, I chose a card titled “Fairies.” It warned me that, soon, I am going to find myself in a situation that will get me “fired up.” My first few thoughts were, NO . . . PLEASE! Really? I have to go through more crap? Can I have a break? Maybe I’ll hurry and choose a different card. All of these thoughts and more came to mind in just a split second. There was no time left and I was already starting class a few minutes late. Agh! A few poses into class, It was clear that the energy in the room was strong, comforting and positive. My thinking started to shift, so I looked at the fairy card again. It counseled me to remember that every experience is a part of learning and I need to strive to not slip back into old patterns. Also, the Fairies are looking after me and when I find myself in the next uncomfortable situation, I will need to attempt to stay heart centered and present in the moment. In doing so, the upcoming situation will resolve itself easily. Ok . . . I surrender, I thought, bring it on and let’s see how I do.
