#48: Tapping into the Subconscious Mind
The secret to yoga practice is in the asanas. These poses we twist our bodies into are not just for our physical health and strength. Yoga practice has the power to lead you on a path of liberation from the mind and body. In this episode of the Yoga Inspiration Podcast, I get a little theoretical and discuss how yoga gets into our subconsciousness. While our subconscious minds are made up of the habitual reactions of our thoughts, bodies, and emotions, yoga can tap into and disrupt even the most negative cycles of thinking. How? Consider this - rather than thinking of our brains and minds as synonymous, consider the theory that our mind is actually capable of creating reality based on our perception. This perception includes our innate physical reactions to certain stimuli, such as pain or pleasure. For example, when something is uncomfortable, our reaction is to run away or otherwise remove ourselves from the painful situation. But if you practice yoga, you are training yourself to remain neutral in the face of discomfort. The discomfort we experience on the yoga mat is there to teach us how to recognize bodily sensations in response to various experiences. Yoga teaches us that it’s not the pain that’s important. It’s the way we react to this pain that matters the most. And this heightened sense of the body gives you an access point into your subconscious mind. What will you do with this access? Will you have the power to break your habits? Learning how not to react is one of the most important lessons you will learn on the yoga mat. Mastering it will give you the ability to change the way you think, and that is the first step toward changing your habits and becoming the best possible version of yourself. Tune in now for more important lessons in spiritual training, and contact me with other valuable lessons you have learned a valuable lesson through yoga practice. Send an email at info@kinoyoga.com and tell me - what does yoga mean to you? You could be invited to guest spot on The Yoga Inspiration Podcast.

Being a Highly Sensitive Person While Black with Sydney James
From Sydney, "Being a Highly Sensitive Person has its own unique set of challenges and beautiful moments. When we factor in the added worldview of being a person of color, it changes the way in which we identify and relate to our sensitivities and sometimes we may not give ourselves permission to show up authentically. Join the discussion in identifying what may be hindering you from acceptance of your sensitive trait and tips on navigating the world as a highly sensitive person while black. I want my HSP audience to receive the message that they don't have to align with the narrative that sensitivity means weakness and can embrace that side of themselves if it's there." Sydney promotes healing, nurturing an authentic self-image and strengthening relationships in all that she does. Sydney is on a mission through The Sensitive Black Girl community to empower black women to embrace their sensitivity as a superpower and meet other women they can relate to. Sydney is also the owner of Black On Black Therapy, a virtual safe space supportive of sensitive souls, LGBTIQ+ affirming and social justice oriented. Sydney is a Highly Sensitive Black Woman herself and dedicated to continuing the conversation of the HSP trait in the black community. www.blackonblacktherapy.com Facebook.com/blackonblacktherapy & Facebook.com/thesensitiveblackgirl Instagram.com/blackonblacktherapy & Instagram.com/thesensitiveblackgirl Sydney also has a guide: The Workbook Guide To Managing Racial Fatigue For more information about The HSP Podcast, visit, HSPpodcast.com --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/julie-bjelland/message
