Be Metaphysical: Transparency

There is a sense of comfort in transparency. When You know what you are seeing, everything is revealed in the forefront. In a world where people seem to have at least one experience in their closet of skeletons they would not like to be publicly known transparency is golden. pop2 There is a sense of energy you posses when you “hold in” a secret.  Is it possible to hold no secrets? I believe this level of transparency is possible to attain once you have the ability to release all. Being judged by a jury our mind creates, leads us to assume what the verdict of our honesty will be pre-trial. I have learned through experience that your level of transparency can reflect onto others and create a comfort zone that allows them to be just as honest and open as you are.   Treat people how you would like to be treated and furthermore, what you are capable of revealing will be revealed to you. The next step is listening to what you hear and learning from what you have heard.  Be Metaphysical Be Open Be Transparent Believe and Be Love

Took a walk around the area and found a nice lit location fit for me to stretch out and feel the sun rays coming down on me. This spot looks secluded but im actually right behind a Arby’s early morning!

An intense back bend to start the day. Using my arms to squeeze all the air out of my stomach and deepen the stretch even further.

Take the time to think before you react. It could change the outcome of every situation from this point on. Have a great day and remain Infocus247

For 60 seconds just feel and listen. One day you may be able to build it to the nearly impossible .. 2 minutes. Time to flood the streets with meditation! Comment your results/thoughts even if thought there were none! Share this with someone you think can benefit from a moment in self.

Travel: Cancun Cancun

On the mainland at the north end of Cancun Island, Ciudad Cancun, also known as ‘Downtown’, was created at the same time as the Hotel Zone in the 1970s and is the fastest growing city on the mainland. All along Boulevard Kukulcan are hotels, restaurants, visitor attractions and Shopping Malls. Cancun-chac-mool-cancun-mexico

Chatohuchi Yoga

Screen shot 2014-03-25 at 12.12.10 PM
The name Chattahoochee is thought to come from a Muskogean word meaning “rocks-marked” (or “painted”), fromchato (“rock”) plus huchi (“marked”)

The vicinity of the Chattahoochee River was inhabited in prehistoric times by indigenous peoples since at least 1000 BC.  Among the historical nations, the Chattahoochee served as a dividing line between the Muscogee (Creek) (to the east) and the Cherokee territories (to the west) in the Southeast. The United States accomplished the removal of Native Americans, to extinguish their claims and make way for European-American settlement, through a series of treaties, land lotteries, and forced removals lasting from 1820 through 1832. The Muscogee were first removed from the southeastern side of the river, and then the Cherokee from the northwest.

A deep stretch to the left to get things started while the wild wind blows altering my balance.

I wish I would of had my mat for this one. Wood and my pelvic area do not agree with each other all the time.

@yogi_peanut The light of my inner self shines through my heart. The light of Divine wisdom shines through my heart. Day 10 of #21daysofmudras Mudra of Inner Self Place the tips of your fingers & the balls of your hands together. Then put your thumbs together. Hold your hands in this position in front of your forehead and look thru the opening as long as you can without blinking. Next, hold your hands about an inch below your chin. It is said that this is the place where the soul lies, your hands forming a temple around it. With each exhalation, whisper “Hoooo.” Sitting in half lotus, lotus, cross legged, etc…our body forms triangles everywhere. The triangle symbolizes the Divine, which is now being expressed throughout the body🔼✨ Love to you all! I can’t believe we’re basically half way thru! 💛🙏💜 #yoga #yogawithpeanut #yogaoffthemat #beuniquelyyou #liveyourtruth #livelikeawarrior #chooselove #meditation #mantra #mudra #justbreathe #floatnabove #beyou #betrue #bepresent #mudras #intention #blessed #grateful #intuition #affirmation #inspire #inspiration #balance #healing #onelove #universallove

Natural Native of Nature

After walking for about 2 Miles this spot found me. I had isolation in mind so I let me legs guide me. At first I saw a tree stump and it looked like a mushroom was on top of it so I walked over to it to see it was a path behind it leading here.
Screen shot 2014-03-21 at 7.11.53 PM
While using the cut trees as a balance beam I noticed how good it actually feels under my feet. It was like a massage until i stepped on a pinecone! -_-
Screen shot 2014-03-21 at 7.11.05 PM
A deep intense forward bend. I over heard something rattling through the leaves It was someones dog.
Screen shot 2014-03-21 at 7.10.30 PM
The signature…. I could imagine just taking off for flight backwards like this.

Everyone that seemed to notice me shirtless in the middle of the woods stopped and caught a glimpse. Felt like i was some type of rare animal named Yogi
