What is your legacy for 2018 – Kundalini Yoga

legacy 1Last week we healed our insecurities and the barriers we had erected to dealing with the challenges of life by using the grace of god meditation. This week we think about legacy, the ability to have a selfless, infinite projection into everything we do in our lives. Legacy means the deeds and characteristics we will be remembered by. What would you like someone to say about how you lived your life and what lasting character you created when you die. Will you just leave money and property to your loved ones, or will they remember you for your kindness, tolerance, compassion. Think of any person you admire, for example what characteristic springs to mind when you think of Mother Theresa? Compassion. Selfless sacrifice? Martin Luther King, justice, equality? Gandhi, peaceful resistance?

Yogi Bhajan the Master of Kundalini Yoga, who came to serve humanity in the Aquarian Age, came to the West to share his legacy, the technology of Kundalini yoga. He came to establish a legacy not a lineage. It is our great blessing to have the guidance of our Spiritual Teacher, Yogi Bhajan, and the connection he gave us to Guru Ram Das and the Golden Chain. Yogi Bhajan transformed the traditional concept of a ‘spiritual lineage’ to one of a spiritual legacy. Historically, a spiritual master would pass his wisdom and lineage on to only one disciple or from the master to his son. Instead, Yogi Bhajan passed on the sacred technology of Kundalini Yoga and its legacy to all who would come to the energy of the Golden Chain as held by Guru Ram Das—the Raj Yogi and Guru who opened the doors to any seeker who would come.

Now spend a few moments thinking what type of legacy or characteristic you would like to focus on for 2018. When you walk into a room what is your energy going to be, a healer, innocent, purity; open, compassion? Hold that thought as many times as you can during the day to hold that energy and project it into your life and those who meet you. Be your legacy in 2018.

Move from Duality to Divine Identity – Kundalini Yoga

We worked on tolerance and compassion last week. By being mindful of our conversations, actions and thoughts whilst coupling this with the compassion kriya posted on Sanasuma Facebook page. Let’s focus on more healing this week before we end classes for 2017 with thinking about the legacy we would like to focus on in 2018.

The extraordinary role of the mother our first teacher is responsible for a child developing her authentic identity and embracing her divine feminine. Ideally the mother or Guru Mata provides a new-born child with security and love. She is the primary foundation and first influence of that child. The intimate and authentic relationships, the Mother has, sets the blue print of trust in the child.

When a child’s basic need for security and love is not fulfilled the child reacts, developing fear and lashing out in anger. When our first teachers (mother and father) do not have a strong foundation in their own divine identity, we form these same distorted beliefs about the world around us.  Gradually innocence is lost. The child learns to manipulate and manoeuvre in an effort to control her life. As she becomes older she becomes conservative, extreme, longing for predictability and control over life. As a result we lose our grace, neutrality, intuition and sensitivity.

Do you feel you are holding on to childhood anger? Take a few breaths, close your eyes and see if an answer comes to you?

True our soul chose our first teachers, our parents; we choose this experience to have in this lifetime. But our solution is not wanting different parents or a difference childhood. Our salvation is to embrace our stories up to now, take personal responsibility for our own lives, our actions and reactions. Then we can free ourselves from these stories, patterns and blueprints through awareness, forgiveness and steady, continual practice of authenticity. This will eventually give you GRACE.
