Moving Past Barriers

I'm beginning to see a small circle of light at the end of the tunnel. I'm not saying that I was particularly discouraged before. But while I've been consistent and for the most part felt very positive about my whole experience, now I really feel for the first time that I can see my feet taking one step ahead of the other. Today it was me, the mat and Rodney again for another divine hour-long session. I made great strides in my practice My transitions from asana to asana were more seamless, my body even more limber and I noticed a considerable increase in my strength. All this and it's only 6 yoga practices later! And as for the difficult pose of Urdhva Dhanurasana, it is getting further within reach. Today I tried it and was able to lift my body up and away from the ground, although my form and the time I was able to hold it pretty much sucked. The important key here is progress. I can't believe how far I'm getting. That is what's encouraging me to stick with it. Well both that , and the fact that my chakra meditations are also improving, thanks to the isochronic recordings I'm using. Oddly I'm noticing old emotions and negative thoughts coming to the surface and then being purified away. Only more good can come of this process, and I can't wait to see how much longer the road to enlightenment will get!
