Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha: Radiating Strength through Stillness

Yoga Chitta Vritti Nirodha- Life Tools

Hello, Spiritual Warrior! 


The second verse in Patanjali’s Yoga Suitras is yoga chitta vritti nirodha – which means yoga is the stilling of the fluctuations of the mind.

But how do we internalize this concept so deeply that it becomes embedded into everything that we see, feel, do and experience as we move through life?

Abhyasa = the daily practice that we show up to every day. This is the practice we dedicate ourselves to. When we have a meditation practice, we are cultivating our ability to witness. And when we cultivate our ability to witness, we are able to be more aware of viraghya – nonattachment. 

If we have a dedicated practice of abhyasa, and we also practice viraghya – nonattachment to the fluctuations that come and go – that is how we integrate yoga chitta vritti nirodha into our life. 

Theory without practical application doesn’t mean anything. This is why a daily practice is so important – bookending our day with meditation. Meditation allows us to show up differently – with more patience, peace, presence, empathy, compassion, allowing, nonattachment, etc. 

It all comes down to just showing up – do the practice, and all will come.

Let this be a reminder that you don’t need to “do” anything to get to where we are going with meditation – we just need to get still, and become the witness.
