The Yoga of Mindset

I feel that I won't be hurt as much because I've learned to delete unwanted thoughts. Alejandro

"It can be a life-changing moment when we really get this: ​Change what you think about someone or something in any present moment, and you are changing your actual experience of what is happening.​ This is because our feelings are not caused by others."

"It can be a life-changing moment when we really get this: ​Change what you think about someone or something in any present moment, and you are changing your actual experience of what is happening.​ This is because our feelings are not caused by others."
Lesson 4 - The Yoga of Mindset

After 18 years of teaching in elementary classrooms across 3 states and 7 school districts, it is crystal clear to me that the highest purpose for education is this: We must understand that we are not a thought. We need to know that our thoughts are powerful and creative, and that we do not have to believe a thought if we don’t wish to.

            The Yoga of Mindset website and free lessons give us the tools necessary to live harmoniously among our thoughts. Our brains are designed to hardwire our most habitual thoughts and feelings, and when we don't understand the most basic way that life works, we use our thoughts to create a life we want as well as a life we don't want. 

            Because past hardwired thoughts and feelings have carved deep pathways in our brains, we return to them unconsciously and automatically. Over time, we can experience our emotions and perceptions like being trapped in a loop and think, This is how life really is and always will be.

            I sometimes wonder if the greatest discovery is not also the most empowering one—when we understand, “No one else can do this for me,” it is truly an exciting moment, and one of the non-negotiables for creating and holding onto the life of our dreams.
