"With each trip around the Sun, I continue to experience greater awareness and self-realizations. We are all born with infinite blessings that we risk taking for granted. It wasn't until I lost everything that I realized my value. I missed myself; as well as the naturally divine gifts that I was given. I wished that I had come to appreciate myself better before such losses, yet this is the unfolding of awareness as we evolve, infinitely. In that process of remorse and realization I gained appreciation, gratitude and compassion for myself in this fleeting, impermanent life. The process of yoga has helped me to unravel who I truly am, as well as to make a firm committment to myself. This revelation process will reap magical, priceless and eternal rewards for all of us; past, present and future..." Namaste' ~ Alanna
