My university counselor told me she had no idea what I should do with my life! - I remember looking at her with bewilderment, wasn’t it her JOB to help me find my purpose? - I felt like a bird in a cage, never able to sit still, never satisfied with where I was or what I was doing. I wanted to move houses, jobs, and towns. I felt hopeless, lost. Like being in a sea of perpetual darkness not knowing how to find the light. - I became depressed, full of anxiety and started to believe that I wasn’t worth finding my purpose. I felt useless, ashamed and alone. - I looked to others to find my purpose. What did THEY think I should do? I started “shoulding” all over myself. - Years went by, never feeling satisfied, never feeling fulfilled. It wasn’t until I started asking “What do I want to do?” did I start discovering what I didn’t what to do. - I didn’t want to live a mediocre life any more I didn’t want to conform to someone else ideas of what I should do I didn’t want to feel the anxiety and depression anymore I didn’t want to be unhappy anymore I didn’t want to feel alone anymore - The list went on…. - Until “I don’t want” turned into “I do want”. - Sometimes looking forward and seeing the endless possibilities can be overwhelming and terrifying. It stops us from taking those BIG-LITTLE steps in any direction. We become stuck, we become lost. - Sometimes knowing what you DON’T want is just as powerful and knowing what you do. Move away from what you don’t want and eventually, you will find what you do. #purposedrivenlife#passion#followyourbliss#becurious#lifecoach#coachinglife#findyourself#selfknowledge#confidence#buildyourlife#selflove#yoga#retreatleader#meditation#yogateacher#mindset

The second guna, that is very much the opposite of Raja is called Tamas. Energetically it is dark, calm, tired, and more quiet. Again, certain times of the day and season are more Tamasic. It’s is also a good energy centre for recharging. When unbalanced however, and in centre stage, Tamas can show up as lethargic and depressive state. Another example of the need for balance, and notice who’s running the show. 💙#theyogapixie #thegunas#ayurveda
