When I went to Hawaii to get my yoga certification I knew there was something very important starting to happen as far as manifestation in my life goes. I hadn't experience much of what manifestation can achieve but now, looking back, I see it so clearly. It´s not necessarily about what we ask for but what we become in the process of asking & waiting for it to manifest.
What I mean by this is that, the way we are feeling and the things we are doing while we ¨wait for the manifestation of our dreams to occur¨ influence the outcome tremendously. I noticed this because I never really asked for a yoga studio, at least not consciously. I didn't see it in my near future for various reasons. I have always wished to live in nature, by the ocean somewhere far from the City. Manifesting a studio for me to continue working with the crowd I was working with would mean getting a place in the busy Panama City. So I never even contemplated it.
I was working in various yoga studios & gyms. I was giving classes in my families living room area which they gladly allowed me to use since they loved the classes as well. In a couple of months success had knocked on my door. 12 spots filled every night in my living room… People writing to me everyday to see if there was still space to bring a friend or 3. Clearly it was going wonderfully, I didn't need anything else. I planned my schedules as I wished and had enough money to get around. I was satisfied.
During this time in which I was working at different studios I began realizing how caring I was to the spaces. Even though I had no responsibility towards the studios in this way I would clean up the place, organize everything, burn candles & incense and made sure the place looked and felt its best. I began to see how at my house I couldn't help to do the same, I bought sweat towels, cushions and everything I could think of to make students feel more comfortable. What I didn't notice at that time is that… Even though having a studio wasn't my conscious goal, I was treating the spaces as my own. I was giving out and feeding that Studio-Owner-Vibe until it had no choice but manifesting. Sometimes it's not about what we want but how we feel and act in the process of manifestation.
One regular sunday I decided to go surfing on my own to a beach break about 1 hour away. Car was packed and I was on my way out of the city, when I realized I had forgotten my BOARD. Who goes surfing and leave their surfboard behind. I felt like I complete idiot but I also had a feeling that was way too weird to be ignored. I´m not the forgetful type. Not of something like that at least. So I came back home and my mother was waiting for me with an annoyed look on her face. As soon as I walked in she said: ¨We need to talk¨... Shit. All I could think of was that feeling I had that by leaving the surfboard behind I was really being dragged into some other situation by the universe. I was right. Right then and their she wanted to basically kick my classes out of her living room (totally understandable and in my opinion, she waited too long). Now what? I had a big group of people who were in love with my classes and starting their yoga practice for the first time.
In the midst of confusion and stress I decided to flow. I decided to open the door to consider, just..consider the possibility of a space. If you would like to know how it all snowballed from that moment on, visit my blog soon to read about it! Love & Light! Katie.
