One of the lessons I have learned, or perhaps I should say have begin to apply, is to just flow through it. There are so many strategies available in all the self help books, but at the end of the day we still need to flow through the more difficult parts of our life. Many years ago while still working in my business I realized that if I took the time with my clients, help them rebuild their core strength, help them not only understand it intellectually (mind), but helped them feel it (embody) they could withstand the path forward to being stronger, more flexible and certainly more physically capable. When the physically stressors of sport or day to day life would show up, they intuitively knew how to navigate the challenges and come out the other side with little or no risk of injury, being much more graceful in how they moved.
I took that idea into the mental aspect of who we are, and following the same concept, first understand how our mind works and how the mind can store emotions in the body, then proceed to work on building a "core" identity and on the "core identity, we can begin to build a strong life. When we get challenged "mentally/emotionally" we can get through it much more gracefully once we know what we stand for and get through the more challenging aspect of our life. What yoga is doing for me is helping me to further "embody" what I know to be true and to allow me to simply "flow through" some of the emotional challenges which sometimes cannot be "thought through", and the concept of surrender though scary will give so much more in return on the other side of the storm.
