Rewire your Brain with Kundalini Yoga – 1 June 2020

Rewired – Kundalini Yoga

brain-2062057_960_720

We have learnt over the last few weeks that we are not hardwired genetically to be doomed by our genes. We have been using techniques that rewire the brain especially the subconscious to get the most out of our lives. Instead of a limited version set by a pre-determined (subconscious) pattern/habit we are learning to use our conscious brain (pre frontal cortex) to communicate with the limbic brain or our emotional/chemical centre to communicate to our mind/body.

This week we will focus more on the tools you can use to rewire or rewrite some of the limited programs you have inherited or experienced in your life so far. Dr Joe Dispenza neuro scientist says, “This is not a time in history to just know what we need to do this is a time in the Universe where we need to know how”. So this is where your Kundalini Yoga, mindfulness, self-discovery and meditation comes in. When we use our conscious mind to get into a state of deep concentration where we are not stuck in our usual brain patterns, limited beliefs, bad habits, for at least 1 hour our synaptic connections start to use our 5 senses to plug into our mind/body connection and create a jungle of neurons which start to instruct the limbic brain to produce chemicals to mirror in your body what you are concentrating on. You are teaching your body chemically what you are thinking. Your innermost wants and dreams are being communicated to your body and it is responding. If you constantly, consistently continue this it becomes a habit, a pattern and finally a subconscious pattern. You have now replaced an old self-limiting belief with a new belief which makes you well, flourish and grow.

This is how we need to change the subconscious patterning. With patience, focus and regular constant practice over years. If you commit to yourself, your life will be different. This is my personal experience from my 18 years of steady practice.

Healing Habits – Kundalini Yoga 25 May 2020

Over the last few weeks we have been working on healing. This week lets get to grips with the psychophysiology of deep healing change. Whether it is bad eating habits, lack of sleep or exercise, looking in the mirror and being self-critical, having thought patterns like life is hard/ life is a burden/ life is suffering ,people eventually disappoint me, better to expect the worse than hope for the best etc.

IMG_0488

We all know these habits and thought patterns do not make us healthy, happy or wholesome. Yet we persist in continuing with them. Firstly why are they so difficult to change and stop?

Simply it is because most of our habits and patterns come from our sub and unconscious mind which actually accounts for 95% of thinking on our best day. The conscious mind that creates the dreams and desires of wanting to be happy and healthy only account for 5% of our thinking on a daily basis.

Practical Change

brain yoga

Therefore it is going to take awareness of what habits we wish to change and applied focussed effort through mindfulness (watching the mind and ourselves) and meditation (interfering with the mind and changing sub/unconscious thoughts) plus journaling seeing the patterns to rewrite some of our original brain programming.

You will all need a little book and pen for this week’s classes. We will need to start writing down what habits we would like to change and our automatic thought patterns.

Firstly it is important to notice when we display behaviour which is not conducive to our wellbeing. After a stressed day do you reach for the carrot cake, glass of wine, Netflix, or an argument? We are using some form of reward or compensation for the stress we have just been through. Therefore firstly we need to reduce the stress during the day and then change the reward pattern. Try this

  • Identify the habit/thought pattern write it down.
  • Then ask what are you getting out of the habit, it is comfort in the cake, reward watching a film late at night because there is no time for you during normal hours, wine to numb yourself to the reality of your life.
  • Observe yourself and use your wisdom. The next time you decide you want to watch the movie until late, set an alarm and turn the film off even if you are half way through it, you can always watch the rest tomorrow. Or if you find yourself standing in front of an open fridge or ordering a cake, is this what your body really needs or is it looking for real fuel, PRANA. So take 7 long deep breaths through your nose, suspending the inhale for as long as you can each time. Then take your action.
  • Are you looking for comfort?. Instead of the sweet treat have a cosy up of plain or herbal tea ,red bush is really great for this. Give yourself a hug and make yourself feel comforted, or go for a cosy nap after a warm shower and drop lavender essential oil on your towel to feel relaxed and cosy. Acknowledge and say out loud the change you have made to signal to your subconscious that you know this pattern and have made a change.

When you are feeling tired, worried or uptight about a deadline try these alternatives to food, messing it up, self sabotage etc.

  1. A cold shower
  2. A cool glass of water
  3. A warm cosy cup of herbal tea, red bush is like drinking plain black tea.
  4. Smelling an essential oil like lavender
  5. Breathe deeply through the nose hold it and exhale through the nose. Do this 7 times.
  6. Chant as you wake up.
  7. Breath of fire for 3mins.Visualise the change.
  • Monitor your negative self talk. Refrain your story each time you want to say I am a sugar addict, stop and say out loud. I am working on becoming healthier. I love to eat healthy food.
  • Accept you will falter, but when you do pre forgive yourself and give yourself a big hug, we only learn through mistakes. Creating new patterns and habits takes time so be patient.

Healing, Celestial Communication – Kundalini Yoga 18 May

Healing through Celestial Communication – Kundalini Yoga 18 May

We combine the prana and mantra themes we have been using over the last two weeks, to heal ourselves through what Yogi Bhajan named celestial communication.

We all know the amount of stress; physical and emotional this period of time has generated.  Whether you are worried about your finances, family or personal health. Literally 2020 (2+0+2+0) is a 4 year and the negative polarity is loneliness & disconnection. Our teacher was a visionary and could see that this stressful and alienating time would need something special that was accessible by everyone, all ages, all physical conditions and backgrounds so he shared the technology of Celestial Communication—meditative body language and music.

“I want to show you how much pranic energy you can feel in the heart center. I know this works. You have to use the body and the being as the instrument of the music. And sing with your tongue. Then you can create a vibratory effect.

Try to understand the basic meaning of what you do with Celestial Communication. The word is ‘kirtan.’ ‘Kir’ means ‘the hand’; ‘tan’ means ‘the body.’ When the hands and body meet, then internal music is created.

Let your body become the instrument. And pavan, the prana, becomes your projection and feelings. Celestial Communication is extremely effective in every part of your being.”When you master Celestial Communication, all the feelings of stress and trauma are filtered through a somatic story (i.e. your physical body) and transform into new and meaningful insights and understanding.

The power and possibility of this process is in our bones—ancient tribes gathered and told stories with body language, music, sacred sound and ceremonial movements. Expressing, awakening, healing and connecting with a sangat—a community—is an ancient and time-tested prescription for wholeness.

It relaxes the tense parts of the brain through the nerve connections in the tips of the fingers, tongue and upper palate, which are the main active parts, and the meridians.

The tension in the neural patterns is relieved into a relaxed pattern of its own originality. It is a very fantastic release. Physical relaxation is not as important as the systematic relaxation of nerves and self are. That’s why the Celestial Communication system will work wonders with all people, from all religions and places. It is a methodology which gives you a tremendous amount of relief in your inner being.”
During our everyday emotions and flashes of memory steal away our mental and emotional energy, our prana, from the present reality. In this practice, as you give your mind and your body to the conscious music through simple arm movements and breath, the music gives you back to your Self—simple, joyous and creative.

In my personal experience this is why this method works so well with kids including with special needs. Sat nam x raymond.fiona@gmail.com   0778011984 www.sanasuma.co.uk www.3ho.org

Using Prana to Heal – Kundalini Yoga 11 May 2020

Pranic Healing – Kundalini Yoga

We continue our healing theme this week by using our breath and prana to powerfully bring healing to our bodies, mind and spirit.

pranayamablog

The first and last thing we shall do in life is take a breath. Breath is the vehicle for oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide but also Prana.

Prana is the vital energy and the energetic building blocks of the Universe. Prana is a form of Vayu’s translated as winds in the body. With each pranic intake we bring in the cosmos or infinite into our being. Prana is the single most important energy for the human body. By learning to breath consciously we can increase the flow of this vital, life force energy as it flows through our hands, eyes and even our voice. It nourishes the physical body; it effects the mind and connection to spirit. If we want to flourish in life, be disease free, have more vitality and energy we need to increase the flow of Prana in the body.

This week we will work deeply on increasing Prana consciously in the body to heal ourselves and make our presence healing. Please join me for these sacred, very powerful tool and practices.

Sonar Sound Healing – Kundalini Yoga 2020

Sonar Sound Healing, Kundalini Yoga 2020

This week is all about being kind, soft and deep healing for ourselves, our psyches (mind) and connecting to the reality of the cosmos, the soul.

I will focussing my classes on this theme and very kindly my teacher Sunder Singh has shared a beautiful website https://www.ramadasa-remedy.com/?fbclid=IwAR08j3RBSNzgEVMDyIzVGde3UHsxjLtunbnoYuQPHpqYOrey4Sg8IhyiLok

The contents which I have condensed for you. Here it is:

Both the ancient science of yoga and the modern science of quantum mechanics recognises that the Universe is a symphony of vibrational frequencies. Mantra recognises these basics sound or sonar vibrations and calls them seed sounds or bij. When you break the bij sounds down into their primal components then you get the sound that underlies all language, the yogis call this NAD. When language first took written form, it was seen as the mystic rose Sanskrit. With our words we unfold and create the Universe. I create as I speak.

This week we will focus on the sonic healing mantra RA MA DA SA, SA SAY SO HUNG. A remedy, meditation tool, to heal ourselves and others. It is a sonic remedy using sound vibrations to heal.  It is a precious gem, a sonic crystal with 8 facets. It captures the healing energy of the cosmos like a gem captures light.

How can 8 simple sounds create healing? Is it magic, nonsense , ritual or a miracle. The Astang or rhythm of 8 is one of nature’s cycles. Like the sperm travelling around the egg 7 times before penetrating it, the 8 beat mantra penetrates the human psyche to change and heal it.

keep-calm-and-feel-the-good-vibrations

Yogi Bhajan called this Siri (radiant) Gayatri mantra. Gayatri is a Vedic metre or pattern upon which poetry is constructed. Gayatri is a Hindu goddess who turned herself into a hawk in the Vedas (book of knowledge) to fly up to heaven and collect the sacred healing plant Soma. The first 4 syllables from our Siri Gayatri mantra talks of this journey, RA (sun) MA (moon) DA (earth) SA (infinity/cosmos) then the second 4 syllables describe how we hold the energy in the ethers SA (Infinity) SAY (personal perception of Infinity) before containing it within us SO HUNG (I am that).

All of infinity I am RA MA DA SA matter and spirit, past present and future, all relationships are captured in this sonic healing. Are you ready to invoke this Remedy to heal yourself and others? The word Remedy is derived from the Latin word med. Are you ready to MEDitate on this REmeDY?
