The Biorhythms of Life – 6.15-7.30pm Kundalini Yoga Mon 1 August @ Prana Lounge

biorhythmIs your life an automatic existence? Are you in survival mode? Or do you live in the ebb and flow of the Universal life force. Our individual lives are either acted out in concert like a harmonious note or discordant and in conflict with these basic micro and macro cycles and rhythms of life, Yogi Bhajan called the Biorhythm of life.

The habits we cultivate, our self discipline and conscious awareness effect our capacity to make key choices that enhance the harmony of the flow or strike a discordant note.

Life’s purpose for the individual is to give us the chance to experience our own infinite nature in the finite realm. Encounter our destiny and build caliber and character through our actions and interactions with others.

At each point in our life we continue to develop, learn and change. The yogis noticed that our life was cyclical. It revolved in 3 main cycles:

  • Every 7 years the cycle of our consciousness and identity. (What are our priorities, values and meaning of life. How connected our we to people and the Infinite)
  • Every 11 years the cycle of applied intelligence. (What are our strategies, how do we manifest our thoughts into actions and how do we perceive cause and effect in relation to our choices)
  • Every 18 years the cycle of physical, health and vitality. (Level of activity, quality of life, lifestyle and wellbeing habits)

If we choose to recognise that our life has a map we can learn to adapt at each stage of our life. We can develop tools and have an emergency back pack to deal with the changing terrain and challenges as we enter each stage.rhythm bio

The Practice

Spend 5 mins making a list of your habits. Now underline the ones that you feel you have learnt unconsciously. For example, I tend eat very fast and not chew my food properly.

Go through each of your unconscious habits and note if you were going to try and change your unconscious habits would it take effort, insight or redirection?

Look at your habits and see if any of them support your mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing. How do they support you when you face challenges in your life? (For example, if I consciously chew my food and become conscious when I eat, I digest my food better, feel physically well and therefore sleep better and am a nicer person.)

What is Middle-aged Crisis?

Pravs-J-Stages-Of-Life

“Quote by Yogi Bhajan”

“The energy in your biology and in the biofeedback systems starts slowing down.  Your internal secretion of the glandular system is less. If there’s no proportion in your cycles and behaviors, no proportionate maturity, you will fall apart. “

So what happens in a mid life crisis? Often women cannot come to terms with the fact that when they look in the mirrror they do not see the same women that they were 15 years ago, even though they feel like 25 inside!  So they do things to try and keep them from looking old, like having a face lift, suddenly going to the gym every day and exercising excessively, dressing like a teenager etc etc!

Men think about or actually leave their long term relationships and find a younger women in the hope that they will feel younger, buy fast expensive sport cars etc!  Unfortunately this does not neccessarily help.

Marraiges and long term relationships may hit rock bottam because of the unconscious shift in needs or exagggeration of long-term tendencies. Couples may find themselves stuck in a rut, the man trying to find acceptance and his self worth, the woman in his life knows all his faults and takes it upon herself to correct him, often this will lead to hard judgements, conflicts grow and communication lessens. Instead what is needed, is good communication, love and tolerance.

If we are not aware and ahead of the times, then we may flounder in the storm, feeling lost and trying to cling to our younger lives.  However things have changed, so we need to find new meaning and purpose in our lives.  If we can navigate our way through these transitions,  accepting the changes we feel physically and emotionally.  Be wise and accept that we have to slow down a bit, but work on keeping our spirit strong.  Eat consciously, devote more time to exercise, meditation and be moderate in what we do.  Recognise that we cannot push our body to the limits as we could when we were in our twenties.  Find the joy in life today and feel what the wisdom of the experience of life has given us.  Mentor and help others and find purpose in our lives.

In todays Kundalini Yoga Class, Shaunagh will focus on a practice a “phyiscal kriya” and meditation for “Inner Assessment”, to centre ourselves and maintain balance in our chakras, so we don’t act from just one chakra or area of our self, instead we use our sensitivity to integrate, balance and make affective decisions to take us through these transitions in life.

Relieve, Relax and Recharge Cambridge class at the Signal Box Wed 13th July 2016

GH Swimming poolRelieve, Relax, and Recharge

I am very happy to be back in Cambridge after a really fantastic teacher training course on Lifestyles and Lifecycles in Sri Lanka.  I am looking forward to sharing the wisdom I gleaned from our amazing teacher Shiv Charan.

However tomorrow I will be teaching a kriya which will help to recharge and relax us in these times of information overload and stress.  Learn to adapt our self, our consciousness and our nervous and gladular systems to adapt and tune into our own self sensory system to cope with the massive challenges in todays world.

Look forward to seeing you back on the mat.
