Personal Power

Good Morning- I woke up and found this essay waiting for me. Just a gentle reminder from the universe to keep going! 🤩Shine bright!  Stand in the moment with the ability to be fully present. Own the emotions. Own the space. Own the moment.  With clarity of heart and mind let your energy flow…let that inner smile shine through. Personal Power BY MADISYN TAYLOR Power is not about exerting our will over others, it is about being in complete truth with yourself. Many of us do not understand what personal power means. We have been given the false notion that power is bad–that it is something we use to exert our will upon others. In fact, when our personal power is intact, we are neither overbearing nor meek. We have a clear sense of our strength and the impact we can have on others. This actually enables us to be more sensitive. Personal power is what permits us to work on behalf of our dreams and desires. It allows us to realize that we are …

Groundhog, Polar Vortex & Winter Updates…Oh my!

Hello TaijiFit Community in Chicagoland- If the weather had you looking for your ruby red slippers while chanting -there’s no place like home…there’s no place like home…there’s no place like home…you were not alone-especially this week! With the cancellation of classes this week, let me just begin by saying thank you for going with the flow. Your patience and understanding has been appreciated as Mother Nature does the temperature tango. It is time to toss this lady a rose and get her a new partner to dance with. I heard a groundhog would like the next dance. Yes. Today is Feb. 2nd. Can you believe it? Today is Groundhog’s Day and Phil did not see his shadow! Perhaps Phil could set his gaze upon this chilly lady-take her for a lovely spin around the dance floor and warm things up-waltz right into an early Spring this year! Quick Reminders- We are currently in the middle of our Winter Calendar . Spring Calendar will be released the last week in February. Spring Calendar-Week 1 Begins M …

Peace starts within us – we cannot bring to the world what we do not have to offer.

The essay that follows found its way to me this week and I have found a moment today to read, reflect and practice- just the perfect whisper that the peace I desire in my daily interactions begins from within me. To my husband Mike, my boys and to all who share part of their week with me to experience movement through Tai Chi. Deepest gratitude to you for this time to learn and grow with my teacher and his loving family. I am ready to move my body and fall in love with the moment. From the moment I step out of my house today, I step out of my comfort zone and begin to play with energy inside and all around me. So many opportunities to neutralize the internal and external story that plays in my mind while staying present in the moment. With my why/goal-to receive the love of others and feel the presence of balance and harmony in the moment. My teacher will nurture my ability to change my center, to change …
