Let yourself feel your feelings

It’s Monday again and maybe for some this can be a little stressful, creates anxiety or non of it. We like to blame on things like work or something else that’s given us those feelings. But if we are  honest and true to ourself it’s the mind and the thoughts who is playing with us. And once you come to realize that this means nothing dangerous or bad, life will get so much easier. I can see much more information on internet and newspapers how to work your mental health. They make it seems so easy for people to think that if you only do this you will be free from whatever is your problem. But this is wrong. 
   When I started to practice yoga, and not just going to classes, I also wanted to read about it. To fully understand it’s meaning. I am not there yet at all. I think it’s a long way if not your whole life to learn. But one thing that made my practice so much more easier was to understand that it doesn’t mean to shut out your thoughts while practicing. In the beginning I could get so nervous and putting pressure on myself. I was thinking more to not to think because I thought this was the way. To do yoga you need to NOT TO THINK. How crazy is that. It’s impossible. The mind is it’s own little place and wants to wander around. 
   I read and learnt from teachers not to punish yourself. We are made like this. All the feelings that we have, good or bad, is something that creates us as humans. If you feel sad, yoga wants you to feel that feeling. It wants you to be aware and let it fall over you. Because thats the way of letting it go when it’s time for that. So, everything has it’s time. And don’t think that you can train your brain into one way or direction. Life is suppose to go up and down.
