Holding Pattern

holding patterns

they look kinda pretty….


1: the usually oval course flown (as over an airport) by aircraft awaiting clearance especially to land

2: a state of waiting or suspended activity or progress

I’ve been in a weird mood lately (just in case you hadn’t noticed).

I’m feeling pretty…stuck. Across nearly aspects of my life. Career, love life, family.  Even in my practice. I had Eka Pada Koundinyasana and suddenly I can’t do it anymore.

I’m trying to figure out how to get through this. I’m not sure I have the tools to do it on my own.

I just know that, eventually, I would like to land.

  1. when i am in a rut, it’s almost always b/c deep down i’m not being honest about my feelings or a decision i need to make. i’m wavering about something or refusing to admit something and it leaves me feeling stuck. which i suppose i am – stuck in a lie of sorts, or stuck in indecision. as soon as i pay attention and get clear (honest) about whatever it is, i can clear it right away and move forward.

    i think you have the tools, mama. yoga is a tool for that very thing, really. (and i say that as someone who doesn’t like yoga at all). but if you want to try meditating, i really like Jack Kornfield’s Meditation for Beginner’s CD. you can also try a non-dominant hand exercise such as asking yourself a question and writing the response with the non-dominant hand. this is helpful for finding a block at the very least, assuming there’s one to find.

    didn’t mean to ramble. only came to say i understand. good luck. i’m sure you’ll land soon.

      “i’m not being honest about my feelings”– that sounds about right. :-/
      Thank you so much for these suggestions…you weren’t rambling at all. I appreciate your input. I think a part of my problem definitely stems from the fact that I’ve let my meditation practice fall to the wayside. I’m going to look up that CD. And I think I’ll try that exercise when I journal tonight. I have a feeling it might help identify the block– because there’s definitely a blockage of some sort.
