Moving Forward

So, I’ve been struggling recently with the question that plagues most of my generation:

What am I going to do with my life?

As I’ve been furthering my studies in yoga teacher training, I’ve stumbled over this question several times. Yes, I know I’m going to teach, obviously, but teach what? Where? Why?

On the first day of teacher training, my instructor asked us what we were hoping to do with our teacher certification once we graduated. Were we wanting to teach? Were we just hoping to learn more about yoga and deepen our practice? What were we here for?

I didn’t know. I knew it had something to do with my desire to heal others through yoga, but I had no idea what that would mean.

Finally, after months of questioning and trying not to panic at the thought of graduating from all this training with no sense of direction on where to go next, I got my answer.

Last night, I went to a Tibetan Bowl & Gong Meditation with a couple of my friends from training. It was an intense experience, to say the least. (If you haven’t ever been to a Tibetan Bowl & Gong Meditation, I highly recommend it!) At some point during the class, the sound waves sent a shock up my spine, and just like that BAM! I knew what my next step will be.

The whole rest of my life flashed before my eyes, and I finally had a purpose and a sense of direction again. It was a most beautiful revelation to become unstuck after months of agonizing over it.

It’s going to require a lot more schooling, and time, but I think I can manage it. The hardest part is figuring out what to commit to. 

Now that my focus has finally been decided, I can move forward.
