Satya Yama - Courage to Face the Truth

There are 10 Yamas and 10 Niyamas - yogic take on human values and ethical practices that help us reach our full potential for personal, spiritual, and professional growth, and to liberate us from the repetitive cycle of suffering. When we live in contradiction to the highest values, when we avoid taking the higher road -  we get stuck in a rat. 


This month join us in aligning our moment-to-moment living with the value of truth, and honesty. Satya teaches us to say 'I' and not 'you', and gives us an opportunity to close the gap between our actions, words, and our values.  Satya invites us to get to know ourselves on a deeper level, and learn to discern between our truth and the universal truth, our lens of seeing and seeing what is without judging. Seeing without judging is where understanding, and compassion reside, the love itself. 


I know its hard to face this truth but its also freeing to know that we have the power to DECIDE to take action or not to❤️ There’s no such thing as trying or being perfect, its the biggest lie: we simply decide to act or not to act on our dreams, our well-being, and the greatest good.


With love, ask yourself:

1. Are my decisions helping me grow or keeping me stuck?

2. Do I use self-limiting language like ‘I’m trying, one day, I am not good at, I do not have time for…’ to avoid taking action?


Self-awareness is 🔑 I am deep in the trenches digging for truth in every aspect of my life, and you know what I noticed? When the student is ready, the teachers are EVERYWHERE, even in Star Wars 😁🎥💕


Please listen to my Podcast Episode 9 where following Glow's monthly subject, Yama Satya, I share the science-based breathing exercise to increase our heart rate variability (HRV), lower blood pressure & anxiety, and not only improve cardiovascular and overall health, but also our honesty, willpower, and self-control. When we live in contradiction with our own values, we truly get stuck. I am inviting you to think about how we can embody our value of truth, and align our actions with our dreams to reach our potential in all areas of our lives. The more anxious and stressed we are, the more fearful and irrational our behavior, the more lies we tell ourselves and our loved ones, and the more and more we disconnected from reality. What can help us to get out from perpetual self-destructive behavior is to look at our actions in ways we can actually measure - using science & numbers. You'll get my simple self-measuring check-in journaling tool to expose the real state of affairs on our habits, then we'll measure our Breathing Rate and finish with the breathing exercise that will help us increase HRV, and all metrics for mental, emotional, and physical health.  

Sending so much love. Let's be courageous to look at how we use our language, and what excuses we make that limit our wellbeing, joy, and success in every area of this fascinating human experience ❤️❤️❤️

Please join our classes this month  - we'll be considering the embodiment of Satya from different angles.

Sending you peace, health, and clarity,

Natasha & Glowing Team
