I study yoga and astrology like it’s my job. And I suppose it is.
Which still surprises me, given what a cynical critter I was less than two years before I bought the domain name and qualified as a Hatha and Vinyasa teacher, taking a 200 hr YTT course with Harmonise Academy.
Fortunately, my curiosity has always got the better of me, and I’ve opened up to the possibility that there’s something more to life than what we were taught in school, or what we see on the news. (At least that’s what I assume, I paid attention at school but I sure as hell don’t pay attention to the news.)
I know there is very little myself or anyone else in human form can know for sure. I know how I feel (when I pay attention) and try to do this as often as I can.
I believe that when I follow the still, small voice: things go quite well for me. That voice often sounds like curiosity. Sometimes it feels more like comfort. Other times, pure bliss.
Yoga, when I practise with presence and genuine intention, seems to correlate with stronger communication with that voice.
Astrology, when I acknowledge what’s happening in the sky and act accordingly, seems to correlate with stronger communication with that voice.
Combining Yoga and Astrology amplifies, clarifies and brings me into alignment with that voice.
And I really, really like how things work out for me then.
If this is all the placebo effect, misguided woo or archaic superstition – that’s OK by me. For now, the benefits I get from practising are enough.
