Prana & Beyond Duality – 24 Nov 2019

Pranic Body and Duality – 24 Nov 2019

e456e9853d2fe92816e7f61cce87c479

This week’s inspiration for my classes comes from taking Shaunagh’s class last week on the Pranic Body and reading Nivair Singh’s book on the 8th Body the Pranic Body.

He discusses the integration of charateristics we dislike into our personality. Not an easy or comfortable exercise but something really deep and that will help us to feel whole.

So this week we will go through our family, especially those that are closes to us and make a list of characteristics that you wish to own and disown from each person. This will give you a really good indication of what aspects or characteristics you have integrated and which you have not.

For example let’s say you always care for others, your friends, partner, children and suddenly you do not do something for one of them, they may become angry at you. Underneath the anger is the fear that if they do not get nurtured from you now, they will never get nurtured in the future. This sets up a duality. How to integrate that would be to ask them to nurture themselves. You can still do things for them sometimes but if you do not always nurture them they can rely on themselves so will not get angry.

Try and see what other characteristic you do not like in your close relatives and see if you can integrate them in a way that makes for integration instead of duality?

Acceptance, Self Acceptance Kundalini Yoga 19 Nov 2019

Acceptance, Self-Acceptance – Kundalini Yoga 18 November 2019

9caf3c68-2589-40b0-a47c-bba0dfc7181d

This week I want to focus on acceptance and what this really means? How we can embody it? Last week my mum’s health deteriorated and I got a severe muscle cramp in my upper right arm so much so that after our Week 2 Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 Sri Lanka 2019, I could not even lift my arm. I remember saying to my mum when she was in pain, relax and just accept that you cannot move for a few days until your leg gets better. It is so easy to give advice but taking it is a lot harder, as I found out. I first felt upset that I had an arm injury, why and how did it happen to me? The mind keeps you occupied with these questions a good distraction and helps to start getting you emotional. Then I remembered my words to my mum and thought I just need to accept this situation, relax and stop trying to work out what went wrong. I relaxed and stop trying to do things and I had to rely on my husband to help me, brush my hair, dress me, even feed me as picking up a fork was painful. This morning I woke up 70% better. I believe if you can really just accept a situation as it is without trying to deny it, pretend it is not there or reject it, it will start to balance itself out. A Yogi Bhajan quote, “ Embrace to erase”.

We are always trying to change life, improve ourselves and our situations, when we fail we feel defeated, judge ourselves harshly. We need to start with an attitude of acceptance, that reality at this moment even if we do not like it, has occurred and only from the acceptance of this moment can we make change possible. Self-acceptance is the same. Instead of self-improvement, move towards a sense of self-acceptance, self-love, even in times of pain.   Accept yourself for who you are and what you are before attempting to strive for self-improvement. It is a subtle yet powerful shift in attitude. Be aware notice your talents.

We may not like reality but by blaming and shouting about the unfairness of life does not change anything, save your energy. First accept and from this attitude take action to improve your situation.

Contentment – Kundalini Yoga 6 Nov 2019

harmony

Sat nam, as we head towards week 2 of our Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training Level 1, I wish to focus your mind on relaxing into contained, contentment.  I was inspired by reading a passage by one of my favourite authors RK Narayan in A Tiger for Malgudi.  The conversation between a Tiger and his Master.

“Do not crave ….It is enough you have realisation.  All in good time. We cannot understand God’s intentions. All growth takes place in its own time. If you brood on your improvement rather than your short comings you will be much happier “.

We all have a tendancies to focus on how far we have to go. The achievements we still have to accomplish. The shortcomings in our practice, our personality our lives.  The Masters is telling us to relax, understand all happens in time.  Focussing on our improvement’s and successes will encourage us to keep up, keep on the path.  This is real trust, trusting that what needs to happen will, which allows us to put your full effort into what we are doing. This conscious effort will end in a state of GRACE.

Sat nam see you this week. Love Fi x www.sanasuma.co.uk  0778011094 raymond.fiona@gmail.com
