5 Lessons at YJ

The Yoga Journal LIVE conference in Florida changed me. I expected to be busting my butt doing yoga all day for three whole days. I expected to be sore and tired. That’s not exactly what happened. I left the conference incredibly awakened, alive and enlightened. I was buzzed from an injection of LOADS of wisdom. The conference was more than just yoga. I received shiny nuggets of knowledge about life, business, living from a place of passion and being in authentic happiness.

Here are FIVE life-changing messages I received from some awesome yoga teachers at Yoga Journal LIVE Florida…

  1. SEANE CORN
    ~ ONLY WHEN YOU ARE READY WILL YOU ACTUALLY HEAR THE MESSAGE.

    This was a BIG one for me. I’ve listened to Seane Corn speak on SEVERAL occasions, but it seems I wasn’t REALLY ready to hear the core of her message before this conference. Seane Corn spews knowledge fast and hard. If you are plugged out, it will fly right over your head. If you are plugged in, you’ll get it.

    I felt like a real nimrod when I put up my hand up and asked Seane if she had recently become enlightened on a particular topic she had been focusing on. Her response: “No, this has always been the heart of my message. It must be you.” Oops! She was perfectly right… It was me. I wasn’t ready to hear her fully before. Only when you’re ready will you be open enough to receive the message.

  2. SHIVA REA
    ~ LIVE FROM YOUR HEART.

    Shiva Rea wants the world to understand that the heart is mega-powerful, and we should all seek to live from the magical knowing of our hearts instead of from our heads. Her message is that the heart is intuitive and thinking, beams energy, affects the people we come in contact with (and by extension, the whole world), and if we live from our heart space, we will find our lives opening up in unimaginably wonderful ways.

  4. SADIE NARDINI
    ~ PASSIVE INCOME ROCKS!

    This lady makes big bucks through a slew of online, passive income offerings, which give her a steady revenue stream without sucking up her time and energy. She encourages everyone to figure out how that they can use their passions to create lucrative passive income. And she’s generous with info… She led us to PowHow.com, Udemy.com, Canva.com, Pic Monkey. Check them out, and check her out too.

    Other bits of wisdom from Sadie… Become what you want to manifest. Better to have a short life doing what you love, than doing what you hate, living long and spending even more time doing things you don’t like.

  5. GABRIELLE BERNSTEIN
    ~ LIVE & WORK FROM A PLACE OF DEEP CONNECTION WITH SPIRIT.

    Gabby Bernstein is ALL about living in alignment with Spirit. Two gems she shared are… ONE: The presence of fear is a sign you are relying on your own strength. Rely on God/Spirit instead. TWO: Be in the presence of what you desire and allow it to come to you in a way that you can’t even imagine.

  6. JUSTIN & KAREN of YOGABUSINESSRETREAT
    ~ OWN YOUR STORY & SHARE IT!

    Another BIG one for me. I prefer to be in the back orchestrating, keeping my personal stuff out of the limelight. BUT, I have story. And these two drilled it in me, quite powerfully too, that it’s important I share my story. Why? Our stories help others. Our stories connect us to each other. Our stories are all the same, they just wear different clothes. Our stories can empower. Additionally, Justin and Karen stressed… If you connect internally with your own story (your defining moment + how that has led you to who you are and what you’re offering to the world now) it will shine through whatever you’re doing, and connect you to the people you need to touch without you ever even having to say anything. So true!
