The Citta is the middle man between the outside world and our inner light. It is influenced by what we are exposed to on a daily basis. For instance being around positive loving people will lift you up and inspire, where as being around negative stressed individuals will drag you down and can leave you in a depressed state. We can be affected by strong minded leaders that encourage us to follow even if it is not the best choice, we are influenced by trends, social media, and keeping up with those around us. When we practice yoga and meditation it allows our Citta to focus within, to come back to out centre and connect with our personal truth.
Some thoughts to journal:
Can you think of a time you were influenced by someone else, and how did that make you feel?
Can you think of a time when you followed your inner intuition?
What are some ways you can focus your Citta on areas to encourage the best version of yourself?
