Why do we procrastinate?

Sat nam having just emerged from week 2 KYTT Level 1, I can relate to the topic of procrastination.

When we begin to procrastinate, our washing gets done, we declutter our cupboards, we even iron but other than having a super clean house and clothes, procrastination is a thief of our time and energy.

Our modern hectic, multi tasking life style has provided the perfect environment for the distractions of procrastination. Our lives look busy and productive but mostly we are killing time, not really dealing with the important jobs that just seem too hard to start.

There can be many different types of reasons we procrastinate. Some of us are perfectionist and the perfect excuse (mind my pun) is to procrastinate because things are not just so, not perfect. I want to do it properly or not at all.

Others are the Crisis Junkies who love to leave important things to the last minute so the stress can kick start them into action and then they can have a dramatic story to tell their friends.

There are the Rebel procrastinators, who feel the resistance of starting the important tasks, because there negative mind tells them they do not feel like it and they believe there mind and feelings.

Dreamers can be procrastinators, reading books , day dreaming or getting lost in movies to avoid the important tasks. If they do not think about it maybe it will go away?

Then there is the worrier, who over thinks the task making a mountain out of a molehill before even starting.

Yogi Bhajan tells us to be mindful when we start down the alley of procrastination. Usually we have been hijacked by our negative or positive mind. In one of the Sutra’s of the Age of Aquarius he reminds us, “When the pressure is on, start and the pressure will be off”. He is reminding us to break down our tasks into smaller ones, focusing and doing them one at a time. Making a plan to breakdown and map out the big task into more manageable stages with a timeframe. Write it down and work through it step by step. . This is a good use of your mind, instead of letting your mind sideline you into worry, perfectionism, feeling pressured, dreaming etc.

Tonier Nooyens reminded us on our Level 1 KYTT course, that we can use the energy of Sattva (perfection) or soul to be our touchstone when our mind turns to procrastination. We can discern what thoughts and actions are going to be in line with our soul’s path or not. We can use this to regulate our behaviour, our thoughts and effect our emotions.   The Buddhi mind discerns what is real (in relation to the soul) and what is not real for the soul. So by strengthening the buddi mind & neutral mind we can see when we start procrastinating and correct ourselves. That is why we need a practice to keep us on track. Join me as we work on the mind and strengthen the neutral mind to work and act with us and not resist us.

Tantric Numerology 2017

I met a man this summer at Solstice in who told me the story of how Yogi Bhajan managed to get the technology of Tantric numerology. The story goes that he tracked down a yogi who had spent his life mastering the technology but refused to pass on the knowledge. He said he would take it to his grave. Then Yogi Bhajan said prepare to die, because it is no use having this knowledge if you do not want share it with humanity. Eventually he reluctantly gave it to him.

Throughout the ages the importance of dates, including our date of birth has been revered by many cultures. Tantric numerology is a technology that uses numbers and significant dates to establish and understanding our strengths and weaknesses. Once you understand these its gives you a plan and guidelines on how to improve the areas of weakness and utilise your strengths.

The system Yogi Bhajan uses reduces every number above 11 and relates it to one of our 10 bodies plus 11th the number called embodiment. The numbers relate to the journey of our soul from its essence as it moves from the grosser forms of existence the physical body, to the conscious forces of thought, through the more esoteric frequencies of electromagnetic field.

1 The number of the soul as it emerges from the infinite.

2 Once the soul emerges from the infinite, it gets surrounded by thought. Which comprises of the 3 functional minds. The first being the negative mind.

3 The positive mind

4 The neutral mind

5 The soul and mind find expression in the physical body.

6 The soul, mind and physical body needs guidance which comes from the clarity of the arc line.

7 The aura is the flow of electromagnetic energy within and around the physical body. It interconnects with the 7thchakra and is the space through which we hold and release our past experiences.

8 The pranic body fills us with energy and which fuels our spiritual growth.

9 The subtle body is the vehicle which allows us to understand the subtle flow of energies in the world.

10 The Radiant body finds radiance in all the other bodies.

11 the Embodiment is the point from which the soul and radiant body unite. A union between heaven and earth.

Just as last week we used the addition of the numbers for this year 2017 to give us meaning and direction for our energies. You can do the same with your birth date, the day of the week, to give yourself a sense of direction and guidance. You can read more about this technology from the following website and the master of Numerology Shiv Charan Singh http://www.karamkriya.com.
