Trust and Relax – Kundalini Yoga 19 Dec, 6.15-7.30pm @ Prana Lounge

Relaxing and feeling all will be well has been an interesting challenge this week. It is easy to feel trust when things are going well but very difficult when life dissolves into chaos. What we all really need to work on is a change to our inner reality, to create the change we want to see. Keeping the body relaxed is important. We may think we are relaxing our body whilst watching a movie, chatting to friends, on the phone or internet, but are you really? Just notice your posture next time you are online, watching a movie or on the phone. This can be quite a challenge as we tend to become unconscious when we start doing these tasks. Try it out this week.

True relaxation of the body is surrendering. It is not as easy as it sounds, you do it every night to fall asleep. You may also do it during a massage, yoga class or meditation. It is as essential to the body as exercise. That is why the combination of body movement and conscious breathing which relaxes us in yoga is so beneficial to so many people. The more the body relaxes, the more the mind relaxes and then you can surrender yourself to the situation. This does not mean you have to accept everything that happens to you, but you must accept it at first, before you take action even in opposition of it. The act of acceptance and surrender, essentially trusting that everything is happening through you for your own best interest, will allow the action to be taken, the solution discovered and the dream to come true. This Christmas and New Year holiday make it a point to spend time every day in moderate exercise and deep relaxation. Enjoy the feeling and then start your day or work. Notice the difference. Also practice the mantra Humee Hum, Brahm Hum….what is to be already is. Sat nam love Fi x read our weekly blogs and brain candy updates 0778011984

Reality v the Desired Outcome 6.15-7.30pm Mon 12 December 2016

I want to live in reality, I wake up each day trying to be more conscious. Viewing my thoughts and emotions, the moment my mind starts to whirl. We have certain deep seated perceptions about ourselves, our limits, who we are, etc. These are countered by our desires, our dreams. We have an inkling but no real knowing of what we are projecting through our mind. In the mist of our jumble of thoughts and emotions we co-create our Universe, “the what is” and then it happens THROUGH us, but sometimes feels like life is happening to us.

The gap between the reality of what we project through our mind, the what is and what we desire and dream is the frustration, anxiety, unhappiness, etc. we feel. In short, we just keep on getting what we normally get and keep on desiring a different outcome. Nothing seems to change.

When our overly, assertive, positive mind says, “Oh it was just not meant to be”. Know this is just a defence mechanism to make you feel better but ultimately keep you from living your dreams. We need to change our affirmation from frustration which makes us feel important. To spending time every day to reduce the noise in our minds after meditation and dream our dreams and affirm, “I will succeed. I have forever”.   When we put a time limit on our dreams we are setting ourselves up for the expected failure, or “I knew it would not work”, because once again being right is more important than being happy and complaints gain sympathy, again a short-term pleasure but not getting you to a place of joy.

Let’s this week take the challenge of learning to develop patience, notice how your body is feeling at any point in the day and relax it. Feel joy in your heart for just being and keep an empty mind except for projection of our desires and dreams. If you want life to be different you need to change your thinking. Use the affirmation, I will succeed, I have forever.

Learn how to be = to your Challenges – Kundalini Yoga 6.15-7.30pm Mon Dec 5,2016

So, last week was one of those really challenging learning experience, as I set about my 24 hours of not having negative thoughts or words. Early on I had a glimpse into how amazing it would be to feel the mastery of the mind and mouth, but a glimpse was all I got before the polarity of the situation hit me, (remember the blog on 3 steps forward 2 steps back). Well I have been back peddling ever since. The fact that I have committed to this has not afforded me my usual comfort of complaining to someone about my hardships. I have kept a stoic silence, only using I am great but my body feels terrible or sick, etc.…

Wow, I am even surprised how much I have missed complaining and getting sympathy, the two biggest obstacles to stepping into your greatness. When you are the greatness you were born to be, you do not need to complain or feel sorry for yourself or anyone else, you can surrender into the knowledge that all is as it should be.   There have also been many highlights, for example, when I really felt I could not leave the bed to make the muesli for Saturday morning Sadhana, I received the lesson that the inability to do was all in my mind and when I made the muesli it was not difficult, it did not take much time and I was perfectly well enough to complete this task, if I switched off the mental chatter and focused on the doing.

Ok let’s add to last week’s challenge not only shall we keep going with the no negative thoughts or words, (i.e. not complaining, just stating facts neutrally) but also making sure in actions and words we treat everyone we meet as if they were our equal. You may say this is easy I do this anyway, but notice sometimes the superior being, judge in your mind feels or mentally notes how everyone else is wrong and you are right. This challenge is a bit like marriage. At the beginning of the marriage you make a commitment and this helps you through the initial ups and down. However, as we know about polarities after commitment comes challenge, boy do I know this after last week. The desire to be right is so difficult to resist and here is where the inequality comes in because if you are right then the other person’s opinion is not as important or equal to your own. Alternatives are, you can agree to disagree, neutralise the thought through mantra, SAT NAM, WAHE GURU, I AM, IAM etc. When we align our personal will with universal will, when we learn how to listen and accept, we let go of conflict and we go with the flow of life. Mental mantra NO CONFLICT, LET IT GO.

When we really practice creating equality it all our relationships, as much of the time as possible we teach our mind that we are equal to all situations that we come across in life. Have a go and let me know about this new practice. Keep up, and you will be kept up. Sat nam Fi x read our weekly blogs and brain candy updates.
