Strengthen Your Aura in class today Wed 24th Feb, Signal Box Centre, Cambridge

“Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light.”
― Yogi Bhajan

shR1b6oTXebCI8TzXvAzOM0ow2KQtfrlFeQwtAZXstfm3skHjXiwV9DxP1BSj86MUTnTesA=s170The Aura is the electromagnetic filed that surrounds your body, it is like the magnetic field that surrounds the earth.  A strong aura gives us a strong and solid identity and projection. When your aura is strong it will radiate and both  atrract positivity and repel negativity.

Wearing white expands our auric radiance by at least one foot.

When our Aura is weak you may feel paranoid, lack in self trust and negativity can penetrate into your psyche and then into your physical body. Illnesses go into our Aura first.

Come to class today to work on expanding our Aura, and feel high on energy and full of life!

STOP Resisting LIFE! Meditation 6-7pm Tues 23 Feb @ The OM Space Col 5

We all find ourselves complaining about the way things are and not living life. Whether it is the traffic, weather or way people drive in Sri Lanka. Our mind takes us to memories or experiences that no longer serve us. How do we solve this problem?

back supportIn every moment there is the announce but also the beauty. It all depends on your focus or fixation. Our subconscious mind tends to fixate on situations. People being late, loud noises, etc. But if we move our attention away from this fixation or resistance to what exists and focus on the wonderful parts of the moment, the air moving against your skin, your breath, we

can see the perfection in any moment.

When your thoughts register annoyance, frustration even for split second, even if you do not show it, your energy becomes 70% introverted into the subconscious and 30% projected. Your subconscious is programmed to protect, therefore it will become fixated on this annoyance, frustration, fear instead of seeing the whole picture.

The registration of an emotional or mental charge then gets lodged in the subconscious. If you do not resolve it within a particular period of time this thought/emotion becomes a fixation. Fixation in the subconscious is outside the range of our intellect. When this load builds up it will start to control your reactive mind. Not only do your own thought patterns stack up in your subconscious but you have been gifted through epigenetics, i.e. your ancestors unfinished issues. These get deposited into your subconscious at birth, to enable you to clear 7 generations of subconscious fixations. What can I do?

Tip 1

At the moment of fixation, you need to be vigilant and present, recognise what your brain is doing, breath deep, say a prayer, chant a mantra mentally or aloud, anything to break the fixation/resistance which will hold you in your emotional patterns.

You are given this opportunity to live so you can learn to receive life as it comes to you. Complaining is like doing nothing it will only waste your valuable energy.

Tip2

The beauty is when you stop complaining and start accepting the process of life, recovery begins. You are transformed in a single life time.

Channel all your emotional charge into understanding how your emotions work.

When you feel OVERWHELMED it leads to feeling LOST.

When you are LOST you start to feel disconnected and DEPRESSED.

When you connect to your emotions again DEPRESSION becomes hot depression and you start feeling all of your supressed ANGER.

ANGER channelled makes you feel DETERMINED.

DETERMINATION makes you feel CERTAIN and now you flip between CERTAINTY and DOUBT.

When you stop flipping and you are FULLY CERTAIN, you will feel BORED. If you can tolerate the boredom you emerge into the middle path or as the Buddha said balance.

BOREDOM (like being in meditation) is the doorway to your enlightenment, no extremes no acceleration, balance.

BALANCE brings devotion, inspiration, enthusiasm.

All because you became overwhelmed.

Tip 3

Accept was is and you can get to what is to be. That does not mean staying fixated on one emotion, it means feeling it and letting it move to the next.

Move out of your Comfort Zone – 15 Feb 6-7.30pm Kundalini Yoga @ Prana Lounge

IMG_0157

Does the world feel like it is moving too fast to keep up with? Technology going at breakneck speed whether it is underwater drones, driverless cars, to stem cell treatment helping people with Multiple Scorsese MS to walk again? The challenge is that we need to feel safe in this fast paced environment during the changing of the age.

Breaking the mould, we have created is frightening. This is what is happening to your kids or the younger generation, they are moving beyond our comfort zone to break all the moulds we put in place to make us feel safe. We must allow this, as this is how innovation is generated. Fruits needs to be greater than the tree who gave birth to it. If we stay trapped at the vibrational level of our brain mind connection, which is constantly rehashing old material we are not allowing our future to unfold. Evolution tries 50,000 things to discover one thing that works, i.e. 49,999 mistakes. Imagine allowing a part of your life to go beyond your limits so you can allow yourself to dream, make mistakes and not be curbed by criticism.  When you are the dreamer, different from everyone else you will be criticised and you have to be immune to that criticism. You have to value yourself so much that your body’s Immune system is willing to protect you against outside attack. (Look at the blog on how to increase your value)

Practical Application

You need to spend time every day, outside of your mind, meditation. Walk the middle path like Buddha. Understand that logic is the gravity which keeps your feet on the ground but spend time in magical fantasy daily. This is real freedom and how evolution changes the universe. Things you bring from your past polish the ones you want to keep or discard those that no longer serve you. Do what you do when you clear out your fridge with your habits and mind. Get rid of the old ones that do not serve you and dream up new ones that uplift you.

community yoga classSafety

When we feel safe we open up our hearts and allow the new into our lives. When you love someone, what is really happening is that person makes you feel so safe that you can open yourself up to feel the love that exists always. The people you do not love do not make you feel safe therefore you are not open to feeling the love that always exists. You need to breath consciously in situations when you feel critical and unsafe. Make yourself feel so relaxed and secure that you are always open to the love that exits in every moment. This is how we can feel safe even when expanding out of our comfort zone.

Meditation for Haunting Thoughts

In yogic tradition, it is said that this meditation successfully removes unsettling thoughts from the past that surface into the present; that it can take difficult situations in the present and release them into the hands of Infinity; that this can be done in just 40 seconds and it really works!

  1. Lower the eyelids until the eyes are one-tenth open. Concentrate on the tip of the nose. Simply say the mantra Wahe Guru aloud in the following manner:Wha: Mentally focus on the right eye. Hey: Mentally focus on the left eye. Guru:Mentally focus on the tip of the nose.
  2. Remember the encounter or incident that happened to you.
  3. Mentally repeat Wahe Guru with the focus as before.
  4. Visualize and personify the actual feeling of the encounter.
  5. Repeat step 3.
  6. Reverse roles in the encounter you are remembering. Become the other person and experience that perspective.
  7. Repeat step 3.
  8. Forgive the other person and forgive yourself.
  9. Repeat step 3.
  10. Let go of the incident and release it into the Universe.

Exercise to Increase Energy and Release Rage

Begin with hands in loose fists at the shoulders, upper arms resting along the sides of the torso, elbows pointing down. Inhale as you alternately straighten one arm from the shoulder, twist the fist out, and “punch.”Exhale as you draw the fist back to the shoulder. Repeat with the other arm and keep alternating arms. Focus the open eyes on one specific point, like a target, that you are punching. Continue at a rapid pace for 1-5 minutes.Really move strongly from the shoulders. Rage is a combination of sadness and anger and often resides in the shoulders. Do not do this exercise facing another person—face a landscape or visualize a vast horizon line. Offer it up to the elements of earth, water, fire, air and ether.

The Yogic Science of Thought

20130910-123522.jpg

Studies on the brain show that when a thought wave is created, it is a weak, dim signal. For many years it was believed that thoughts only had influence on our own brain.

Subsequently they have discovered even though each one of our thoughts is a weak signal, it has the ability to immediately attached on to our electromagnetic field.

Electromagnetic fields hold information. That is how information is recorded on a computer hard drive. It is also how we use to record programs on magnetic tape. It is all done by electromagnetics. So after you drop your body (die) all that is left is an electromagnetic field with the recording of all the thoughts, emotions and experiences you have had.

When our electromagnetic fields come into contact with another electromagnetic field (if you are not sensitive enough) you will not know if you are having your own thoughts or those of your neighbours. Our thoughts can affect other people. Most of the time our thoughts are so dispersed that they are very ineffective. But when we focus like during prayer or focussed visualisation it allows a thought to fully permeate our electromagnetic field which allows us to influence the electromagnetic fields of others. When you have a thought about someone it is a bit like phoning their mobile number, we are connecting to their electromagnetic field. Einstein also discovered that no matter how many millions of miles you put between 2 electrons they will still mimic each other. Send me a good thought and I will receive it.  When I see the beauty in someone, that thought of beauty is going to permeate my aura making me seem beautiful to others, even if I have lots of other faults.

When you chant during class, you are sending a message to your electromagnetic field to connect with your infinite generic identity, the infinite electromagnetic field or as we say the higher self. Imaging done on the electromagnetic field after singing and chanting show it glowing. Loose yourself in mantra or uplifting music and your electromagnetic fields gets saturated with those high vibrations and suddenly you are feeling amazing and so is everyone else around you. This is why the Dervish whirl, with their heads tipped to one side to recycle the kundalini energy that is following through their bodies.

 

 

Practical Lesson

Next time you are in mental dis ease whether it was triggered by someone or an event, cut through it by getting lost in a positive mantra. When a lot of negative thoughts come to you like this: (-). Cut it in the center, what does it become? Positive: (+). So we pick up one mantra which is a positive sound thought and repeat it until the minus becomes a plus. Try the Om Namo Guru Dev Namo mantra by Snatam Kaur Khalsa, I will post it on our facebook page this week. Start living your life through a conscious decision to understand your mind.

Community Yoga Class – Pay by Donation 6.30-7.30pm Fri 5 Feb @ Om Space

imagesFJ4B2UWHAt The OM Space Yoga Studio, we believe that practicing yoga should be something that everyone has the opportunity to explore regardless of age, financial situation, or social class background. That is why we have added our new Friday evening 6.30-7.30pm Community Yoga Class to our schedule of classes. This will allow us to reach out to communities who may not be in a situation where they would normally attend a yoga class.

community yoga class

Yoga can be seen by some sectors in society as expensive, added to the fear factor that I am not flexible/thin/fit/calm or just enough…to practice yoga.

There are multiple other reasons why people may not feel they are able to join a regular public yoga class. It may be especially hard if you are someone who is in a vulnerable position in society. Practicing yoga is likely to be far down the list of priorities for people who are living in poverty, have chronic ill health or who are in recovery from addictions, by putting on our community yoga class we want to make it as easy as possible for anyone to join our yoga community, feel supported whilst only having to pay by donation or by giving as much or as little as they feel like giving.

When I finished my teacher training course in Ecuador, South America in 2003, I found a community of elderly people in a small village who really need some community yoga. I travelled to their community where I taught them yoga stretches and pranayama before we handed out a free lunch. I could only manage it once a month and there was around 50 elders from 60 years upwards all eager to rhymically stretch their bodies and feel the breath of life calming their minds. Every time I taught I felt it was my privilege and blessing to reach out to this precious community.

I feel the same about our Community classes at Om Space. I believe it will have a positive effect on our Sri Lankan community as well as giving our teachers the honour of teaching all the benefits that a regular yoga practice can bring to elevate peoples lives, relationships, bodies, mind and soul.

Please let your friends and relatives know about our Community Yoga Class.

Relieve your Elementary Stress – Cambridge class Wed 3rd Feb 2016

bigstock-Stress-symbol-isolated-on-whit-35204573-150x150Elementary Stress

Everybody is born to be happy. We are unhappy because we get short-circuited. We are unhappy because our nervous system cannot take it. We are unhappy because our intuition does not answer us within nine seconds—the time our brain has a system to respond to.

It’s a Catch-22. Once you are content. everything will come to you. When you are discontent, everything will go away from you. This law applies beyond you. With elementary stress, you can never be content. Doesn’t matter what you have, who you are, or what you are talking about.

When we can recognize our internal and external sources of stress and overcome or adapt to them with grace, intelligence and gratitude, we become more relaxed. In that deep relaxation, we can accept our self and tap into our own vitality. That is Raj Yoga. (quotes by Yogi Bhajan)

Trust, How to Develop it? 6-7.30pm Kundalini Yoga 1 Feb @ Prana Lounge

imagesYVXKE1VX

Who’s got your Back

Last week I watched a DVD which was very inspiring, it was called, “The Intern.” It featured a wise old man in his seventies with life experience who becomes an intern to a young self-made woman. At the beginning of the film she sees her intern as an irritation, she feels she knows better in her ego driven, self-absorbed world of dramas and traumas. The old sage (i.e. Intern) who says almost nothing, just observes, stays in the background and quietly supports her. She finally realises instead of feeling threatened by him, she sees the value of his kind support. In life our eternal old soul is sitting in the background pumping out security. Always telling us if we listen, “all is ok, you are eternal, life is a gift, relax and enjoy the ride”.   But if we do not connect to the eternal part within us, we are always in the foreground feeling we cannot trust because we have been let down by past relationships, family, friends, etc.

902353_683794071652169_384892664_o

It is easy to trust when things are going well but very difficult when life dissolves into chaos. It can feel like everyone else is getting what they want,but why is that no happening to me? This means you really need to change your inner reality to create the change you want to see. 

How do you trust? Trust is knowing you will be fine no matter what. But how do you get that feeling? Trust comes from connection to that quiet, inner sage who always loves you and it looking out for you. This love and commitment to yourself develops a deep inner knowing. Despite the external circumstances nothing can shake you. In those moments of foreground insecurity you have to find your key to connect to your eternal background security, which will allow you to travel from desperation to inspiration where everything becomes possible. Breath in Trust. Consciously breathing deeply through your nose can make you feel really secure and good. Conscious breathing tells our subconscious mind that all is well, I am alive. This gives us a feeling of trust and security. Also try this mantra meditation, it helps release fears and replace them with trust and commitment.

P.S For those of you who have not tried yoga why not come to our new Community Yoga Class 6.30-7.30pm every Friday @ The Om Space. Payment by Donation.

Meditation for Trust: Chant the Wahe Guru Mantra

Sit in Easy Pose with the hands in Gyan Mudra. Chant Wahe Guru (wah-hay goo-roo) for 11 minutes.

Chant along with the version of the Wahe Guru Mantra below.

Wahe is a statement of awe and ecstasy. Guru is that which brings us from darkness to light. Wahe Guru is an expression of complete ecstatic awe of the Divine. It expresses the indescribable experience of going from darkness to light (from ignorance to true understanding). It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. A trikutee mantra, it balances the energies of the generating, organizing, and transforming principles. It expresses ecstasy through knowledge and experience. It is the gurmantra, which triggers the destiny.
