Today’s blog post is inspired by a request I received from a fellow yoga teacher, Mira Mehta, to share details about an upcoming Yoga Poetry Competition she is running, organised by The Yogic Path. I’m sharing her news to encourage you to get creative and express your inner heart song:)
Welcome and hugs dear friends, and as usual thank you for pausing in the midst of your busyness to visit my blog. I trust you are well and taking time to rest and be present with your breath.
Get Creative and Express Your Inner Song
One of the best ways I know to get creative and express my inner heart song is to meditate and write because this practice enables me to see beyond the madness of life. As I sit in silence and tune in I access that quiet calm space inside and after meditating I stay in the silence and allow my thoughts to glide across the pages of my journal.
In fact, my first ebook, Returning Home to the Healing Waters of my Soul, is a collection of grief and loss poems I wrote, following meditation, as a way to help me deal with the pain and suffering I felt when my cousin Sherry and brother John died within 18 months of each other. It was a very sad period in my life and it was writing and meditating that helped me through. Here is one of the poems I wrote, at that time.
I’d love you to buy a copy of Returning Home, because it really highlights my pain and journey to recovery and shows how I use meditation and writing/spiritual poetry to express my inner heart song.
Because of my interest in writing and journaling, which often takes the form of “Yoga Poetry”, I was delighted to receive an email from Mira Mehta from the Yogic Path telling me about their 2013-2014 Yoga Poetry Competition.
