This is an interesting topic because taking up space is relative to each person depending on different activities, or even even they feel it to be a physical space or an energetic one. I'd have to say that I feel like I am taking up the most space when I am practicing yoga. The reason why is because energetically, I am reaching through my fingertips, I am grounding down through my mat, I am using my body and energy to exceed the space around me. Mentally, I imagine myself bigger than I am, and breathing in much more air and exhaling more around me. When I do this, I leave class feeling proud or in a better place to make decisions. I feel as if I can be fully aware, and present with all of my being.
I am curious to how you feel. I think although this is a smaller journal entry, that it's definitely worth thinking about. I believe it is so good to know and feel what gives you most power and control of your own life.
