My body tenses each time I consider all that I am responsible for: 4 children (and all their responsibilities), husband, house, fast-paced job with patients who often need more help than I am able or allowed to give, there's the bills, my in-laws and mother are aging and need more help than they are willing to ask for,  I'm still running YOGATHEA®, and then there's taking care of myself. The anxiety thinking about managing my life is actually worse than finally sitting down with my calendar and phone to plan. I need a clear mind, I have to let go of a few things weighing down my thoughts.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—God's good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

God's will is to see us thrive to fulfill a divine plan for our life but it is up to us to test and approve that plan. My body tensing is God's way of saying, "TARA, LET GO!". Now obviously I'm not going to let go of my children, or husband, or house or any of these blessing I have, but I will let go of the worry and pressure to keep a tight grip on what I cannot control. I cannot control my mom's health, what homework my kids decide to turn in (or not turn in), or if the garage door is going to stay on track. I can control my diet, exercise, amount of sleep and meditation I participate in. By taking care of myself, I'm stronger and more flexible to manage my blessings. The pain, the anxiety, the fatigue the tension are all messages that something needs to change, there is something I need to let go of. I have energy and balance in my life when I take time to let go. 

Learning to listen to my body through YOGATHEA® has given me the extrasensory ears to hear God speak into my life. This summer YOGATHEA® is creating a time a place for us women to listen to our bodies, "LETTING GO" of the worry that weighs us down. We will release the grip of our false sense of control, release the tension, release the grievance, release the fear to nurture each other as only women can do. Please join me this year at Pokagon Indiana State Park for a life changing weekend of "LETTING GO".
