The best way to find a solution to a problem, is to align yourself with the answer.
How can you find an answer, if you keep thinking about the problem? As Abraham Hicks would say, “you can’t get there from there.”
This is where yoga can be incredibly beneficial; allow yourself to spend time focusing on the body and breath, instead of getting caught on the hamster wheel that is “problem solving.” While not always a celebrated approach by our culture, it is nonetheless effective, and arguably more so than focusing on “hustling” and “efforting.”
At first, this might feel counterintuitive. But if you stop, breathe, and feel, you might come to know the truth of this approach.
What if you simply flow with body and breath, reestablish the mind-body connection, and focus on living a full, complete and satisfying life? Could you let everything go for an hour during your yoga practice?
If you did, you can align yourself with the answers.
You also might find it easier to practice this alignment off the mat, as well as on it.
It is one-hundred percent true: you never know where the solution could lie. You never know where inspiration might come from. And when the energetic channels of the body are opened through yoga, and the connection is established between movement and breath, you can feel yourself opening up to ideas, solutions, and inspiration.
Maybe you can’t even imagine how it might work. Maybe you don’t have to—it might be as simple as yoga.
