a ‘not so subtle’ journey

a ‘not so subtle’ journey

I understand
I see
I speak
I love
I can
I feel
I am

how will I climb this ladder of subtle energy
to evolve my enlightened being at the crown?

starting from the substance of who I am
with all of my emotions and determinations and flaws
that pass through my heart and channel through my words
and filter how I see this life in front of me…
no wonder I feel this climb to understanding
to be a ‘not-so-subtle’ journey.

but what if I turn that climb into a horizon
laying out each subtle energy as if they were ‘piano keys’
as my teacher once said to me?
then, rather than struggle to pass through and reach for the next
I ‘play’ their subtle lessons together
in each moment of my transformation to wholeness.

I am I feel I can I love I speak I see I understand…

Mary_HS_smMary Geibel was first exposed to yoga at a very young age, as she peaked in on her mother filling a blanket with beautiful poses and a calming breath.  That seed, planted in a single glimpse, grew into a gift that has given her a huge sense of Self. She wrote this blog piece when preparing to teach a chakra themed yoga class. In addition to teaching yoga classes, Mary enjoys teaching the anatomy portion of the World Peace Yoga Teacher Training course. For more information on this program, click here.
