I've been having a lot of dreams where I find myself in Hanumanasana, more commonly known as splits. This is not a pose that I am able to get into the full expression of during my waking life. Yet each time I have this dream I am showing someone that I can only go so far and then bam, I am there. So why is this significant?
Hanumanasana is named for a great leap taken by the Hindu deity Hanuman. This deity took the form of a monkey and was unaware of the great power he possessed. When called to remember his great power and strength he transformed, and grew and was able to leap from India to an Island in one move in order to save the kidnapped Sita.
I have been hoping this will be the year that I go part-time at my day job and enable myself to teach more yoga and do more freelance work. I have a feeling my dreams might be trying to tell me it's going to be time to make the leap sooner than I think.
Have you ever made a big leap? How did you know when you were ready?
