GETTING "IN THE FLOW" AT THE SURF LODGE

This picture makes me so happy. You know that feeling after you do something that challenges you and you're like....ahhhh I did it. I feel this every single time- I got several DM's from new teachers asking how I moved through that nervous feeling to get up and finally start teaching. The truth is I get so nervous every single time I get up there. I used to let this feeling debilitate me and hold me back from going for things I really wanted because the fear was too strong. Now I meditate the night before and the morning of class, I place crystals on my mat and I go to the bathroom and pray in the stall (no joke) for nothing but my love to move through me with everything I say and do. This practice has helped me lean in towards what I want but scares the hell out of me.
