I place me feet side by side and spread my toes.

The rush comes from the earth and rises up my body like a flame.

The only sounds are my breath, heartbeat and the blood flowing through my veins.

No longer do I look outside of myself for acceptance.

The need to guard this tender heart dissolves into softness as I Iet go of my doubts.

I am my true and authentic self, full of power and radiance.

Is it me that holds this mountain pose or is it holding me?
