The ABC’s of Your 123’s
Y is for Yoga

The idea of Numerology is to connect with yourself, so too is the intent for yoga.   

“If you want to fail at yoga, look around the room during class. If you want to succeed in yoga practice, look inside.” Tricia Gunberg

PURPOSE: I want to show the benefits of yoga through examples as well as the body-mind connection in healing ourselves with the use of yoga.

This is broken up into two parts- the first being an introduction to benefits of yoga and connections to Numerology. The second being a collection of examples, a study if you will, in which I’d love to collaborate with others.

I’m a big advocate for yoga. I’ve been recommending it for those with a 2 in their Life Path ever since I realized the depth and type of sensitivity that the 2’s carry. Most often 2’s will look outside of themselves and ‘feel’ (sense) that other people need things, creating a great distraction.

The 2 in my numerology appeared as an 11 when I changed my name in 2007. (In hindsight, it was good I allowed myself to become this much more sensitive person, my husband has shown me the way.) The 11 is my new heart’s desire- a visionary who wants to be surrounded by like people- yep! No coincidence I was getting the message, at this time, to start yoga. A niece had repeatedly suggested it to me in the past. I resisted it until 2011. I fell in love with yoga when I moved to Hawaii in 2014.  The more time I spend on the mat the more benefits I experiences (Not just physical!).

Through my practice and my self-actualization study there are a few rules I have come to understand:

                 Our body does not lie to us.
                 Our body communicates to us.
                 Disease, is really dis-ease, and can be energetically explained.
                 (Works of Numerologist Michael Brill and Louise Hays body of work, for example.)

It does not matter where we start when we take an approach to healing ourselves. Whether we begin on the inside(mind), or the outside(fitness), our efforts will result in healing. Here is an example:

The energy of the number 3 is about creative expression. It is my numerology, the first in my Life Path number (37/10). I have been holding my creativity back for the majority of my life and I have very tight hips. Hips represent your creative center. Many physical problems have occurred because of this tightness: lower back issues, torn ligaments, and knee problems. I’ve also had menstrual issues, pre-cancerous cells in my uterus and urinary problems. Do I work on being creative? (Inside) Or do I stretch my hips (Outside)? Could one approach be more effective than the other? The answer for me is to work on the physical part with an expectation/intention that it will resolve any issues.

 I have had success in this and I share the connections I have made with yoga and numerology, so you can experience this success too. My success: Since beginning a regular yoga practice 4.5 years ago I have: written 2 books, created 2 numerology products for kids, recorded downloadable numerology readings, blogged/guest blogger regularly, been published in magazines, have a Facebook following,… the list does go on.

Making these connections got me so excited I talked my friend into helping me. Using these ideas along with my very knowable yoga instructor Yuki Agoot, we created this video for you. Here is part one:

Look at this picture. Are you convinced that this simple yoga practice helps with posture?

If you are on the big island of Hawaii go to Big Island Yoga Center to begin your practice! If you’d like more 1:1 type instruction go to one of Yuki’s classes at StudiOm . She offers small classes in her studio, each with a very specific approach.

The following text is the mind-body connection. Prior to and after doing the video, refer to the list below. See if any of these areas of your body are speaking to you. Can you hear their message?

Heal and toes- represents future
The feeling of falling backwards when you are in physical alignment,now, grounding, connecting to the earth
Question: Do I fear the future? Do I over-do? Can I relax? Can I trust all will be okay?
Truth: I am secure in the present moment. I trust what the future has instore for me.

Ankle- pleasure
Question: Do I allow pleasure in all areas of my life? Do I have inspired action in my life or heavy amounts of required action?
Truth: I allow pleasure. I find pleasure in everything I do.

Legs – represent moving forward
Shins- high standards
Thighs/Buttocks- using power wisely
Question: Do I move forward with ease and grace?
Truth: I move forward with ease and grace.

Hips- represent creativity (energy of the 1 and 3)
Question: Do I creatively express myself? Do I allow my creative self a safe place , fun time to explore and express?
Truth: I am limitless in my creativity. I use to my creative nature to uplift myself and others.

Chest(3 is scattered, 2 is balance)
neck, throat, breath
Balance, scattered thinking, not centered
Question: Am I safe? Where do I feel most balanced? When do I feel centered?
Truth: I am aware of what I need. I honor myself.

Shoulders-represents responsibility
Questions: Do I carry the weight and responsibilities of others? Am I fully and lovingly responsible for myself? Do I make decisions from wellness and joy?
Truth: I attend to the responsibilities that are for my greatest and highest good.  I allow all my experiences to be joyous and loving.

Do any of these connections speak to you? Do your ailments match with the issues listed?

Yoga would be great for anyone. If you are in your 5th Personal Year, it will help you greatly- you’ll be doing a lot of changing and expanding. You will need to practice your flexibility and being on the mat will remind you. To find your Personal Year go here or buy my book.
