Getting Back on the Horse

In two days, it will be one year since my skiing incident of 2009. Today, we went to Badger Pass and tried me out again. I have to say, as I walked to the beginning of the trail, I felt alot of anxiety. I looked at the snow and wondered if I could really do this again. As I put on my skis, I repeated the Ananda yoga affirmation, “I am safe. I am sound. All good things come to me. They give me peace”. When I came to the first icy hill (not a very big one), I took off my skis and walked down it. The up hill was no problem. I felt strong and able. As we continued, I repeated the affirmation,” Strength and courage fill my body cells. Joy descends to me!”. Thank you, Ananda yoga, for giving me something positive to focus on while my brain and body came into sync. It was a good day!Image004

    Horray! You look marvelous out there. So great of you to be brave enough to ski and also strong enough to know & accept your limits — for now.

    Love you, MOG1 – I will remember this affirmation when I get in a scary situation.
