This eagerness and newfound resolve can be a transformative experience when we allow the progression to unfold organically. The tendency, however, can be to go all the way, right away.
This can result in extending far beyond one’s center; the place in which one’s intentions initially sparked. Every time I find my mind focusing on minutia, or worried about the arrival of the fruits of my labor, I reconnect to the Anusara philosophy of balancing between effort and surrender. Anusara Yoga perceives the front body to be representative of infinite possibilities in one’s self, and the back of the body is representative of one’s connection to the Universe. Ultimately, this principle aims to achieve a balance between reaching too far into the future and leaning too far back into the past.
In order to stay anchored in centeredness, one of the most important ways to show up is to set an intention every day. I sit quietly each morning (any amount of time is perfect) and choose the qualities I want to bring into my day. For example, “Today I choose patience. I am trusting and I am willing in this process of attaining my goals.” Or, “Because I trust, I do not need to push.”
But, no matter how often you envision what you want to happen, the crucial piece is to manifestation is to find that balance between effort (intention setting, journaling, etc,) and surrender (allowing and accepting without demand, resistance, or struggle). Dance freely within that space of infinite potential and your connection to the Universe.
