Yoga and mediation...much needed today!

Meditation. Today I felt like I should really go to yoga. I am so glad I went. 30 min into class, the instructor had us lay back and we literally went through progressive relaxation from our brains to our toes. I needed it! I have been stressing and haven't been able to fully relax until this morning. She had us find ourselves on the beach. These pictures are from 2 years ago when I went to Anguilla. When she mentioned to find a beach, my mind instantly went to Aruba from last year, but as I got to thinking, I thought of all of the beaches that I have been to and I realized how blessed I am. The Lord has given me such a good life! I needed to remember that just getting in touch with my body, my mind and gratitude, changed everything for me this morning. I am grateful for small in touch moments. I will do my first heart wall therapy this morning. I am a little scared, but excited to tear down pain-filled walls and open my heart to healing and the Lord. I know that the atonement of Jesus Christ heals us and that all of the remedies to heal are available all around us. Part of the experience of life is finding remedies and health coping mechanisms. The longer I'm alive, the more grateful I am for experiences, both good and hard to help me grow and become more intelligent and knowledgeable about how to deal with issues and experiences.  Thanks be to God for good things amongst hard things! Life is good no matter what. We experience what we look for! Have a great day!
