Monday Mantra - February 18th

“I have the right to see.”

Living in s society surrounded by gaslighting and “fake news.” Whether its from our president, strangers, social media algorithms or even those we are close too, we struggle to allow our third eye to guide us into seeing the truth. Our third eye holds our knowledge and gives us those “gut feelings” when we know something is wrong.

I challenge everyone this week, off your mat to have a genuine conversation with someone different than you, then reflect on what you experience and notice how this person may have opened your mind to even the smallest perspective shift. At the end of the day, go with your gut feeling and your core morals but allow yourself to take in new knowledge.

For a practice on your mat, close your eyes, imagine a bright light coming into the center of your head through the crown. On your inhale the light grows in size, on the exhale it comes through your third eye, allowing your thoughts to become actions. Use your other senses to observe reality and begin to see with your mind, see with your third eye instead of only trusting our physical sight.

-Namaste, Michi P.
