What is a Retreat? And Why do we go on Them?

As the Kundalini yoga community gets ready to go on Retreat this week,( sorry in advance to students who are not coming and will have a lack of teachers), I thought I would blog about what going on Retreat is and why I look forward to this practice as many times as I can manage it in a year.

The definition of Retreat, is to withdraw. But in the spiritual sense we go on Retreat to withdraw from our everyday life and routine towards our spiritual touch stone. To leave our technological filled world behind and spend some me time, learning, connecting with new and old friends, teachers and most of all our spirit.

For me personally going on Retreat is a time for me to tap into my own deep wisdom, to listen to the quite voice within and have insights into my life, routines, relationships, mind, habits, etc.   At the same time you Retreat to be alone and have an inner experience, even though you are in a group or community. You have personal insights and OMG moments but also feel the shared experience of the group that makes you feel cosy, relaxed and supported. After a Retreat I usually feel as if I have hit the refresh button, I have more energy, my body feels great and my mind feels clear.

Practical Solutions

So how about all of you who are not going on Retreat? You can still have the experience of a Retreat. One day a week or half day I retreat, I try not to use technology, I switch off, withdraw from the outside world and have retreat time. Whether it is attending a yoga class by myself, reading a book, magazine, taking a nap, swimming or watching my favourite movie. Learning to love your own company and spend alone time is very important to counter balance the pressures of life. So this week let’s make each class a special time for you to retreat and connect deeply with that inner you, reflect on your year so far, feel gratitude for what you have and have done.

The Buddhi Mind & why we meditate? – Kundalini Yoga Mon 2 April 6.15pm@Prana Lounge, Colombo 7

IMG_4348

The Buddhi Mind and why we Meditate?

We have worked a lot on the mind and in these final weeks before Sri Lankan New Year I wanted to clear up some concepts around meditation, concentration and relaxation. This is what we know so far:

  1. The mind is automatic and there is a lot being thought, processed in the sub, unconscious and conscious mind. But the key thing is that you recognise that YOU are not the one thinking; your MIND is the one thinking. You are the one observing a small portion of the thoughts the mind is having.
  2. The Mind loves contrast so it can create a blueprint for the mind. It likes polarities because they are helpful for classification, good/ bad, right/wrong. Pre established judgements of the world allow the brain to do less work, use less energy and be on a low power mode.
  3. You can affect your mind because it is actually very subtle matter. It can be affected by things like food, breathing, lifestyle, sound and energy.
  4. The point of meditation isn’t to shut it off the mind, it is always working. We meditate to both delete obsolete content that has been stored in the mind and pause in our identification with it.
  5. The only way to gain control of the mind to start serving you, is to use a technique that removes the self reference point, the I.   When we take our attention to the breath, body, mantra, an object etc, this concentration on something beyond the mind is like working a muscle. After the muscle is worked it relaxes more easily. This is the same as your mind, at one point during or after the focused meditation you will start to feel more relaxed and with regular practice start developing the Buddhi mind, which is intuitive, discerning and discriminates what is false and real.

The word meditation has become super trendy, people talk about beer meditation, cooking meditation, all sorts of times when they feel they are in a meditative state.   Feeling relaxed is one of the effects of meditation but it is not the only one. I discussed this with one of the wonderful teachers from the UK who were visiting us, Hari Karam.   Relaxation is essential in life, doing things you love and feeling relaxed but do not confuse it with meditation which is essentially concentration to unload the mind, relax it, make it intuitive and in higher states feel a merger with the Infinite.   This is very different to feeling relaxed after a glass of wine or TV show. The former puts you above thought, while the later puts you below thought.

So in summary we meditate to transcend the waves of the mind and become conscious of our sensory system. It allows us to see what is in our mind, why we are behaving as we do, so we know what is real and not. In higher forms it allows you to know the unknown (intuition) and see the unseen. So you can steer yourself through life, without reaction with GRACE.

Practical Solutions –The easiest way to meditate is through simple, seated breath, or mantra meditation. Just sit comfortably in a quiet place, straighten the spine, relax the body and slow your breath. Focus on your breath or on repeating a mantra. Keep your body still. Your mind will dump out a lot of thoughts from the subconscious, your may experience pain the in body. Watch them, they are not YOU. Just continue to sit still and continue to bring yourself back to your focus. Eventually the thoughts will become still and you will feel surrounded by comfort. Yogi Bhajan on Prayer vs. Meditation: “Prayer is when the mind is one-pointed and man talks to Infinity. Meditation is when the mind becomes totally clean and receptive, and Infinity talks to the man.”Sat nam x raymond.fiona@gmail.com   0778011984 www.sanasuma.co.uk www.3ho.org

Let the Mind Serve You – Kundalini Yoga 6.15pm Mon 26 March 2018

neutral-mind

By thinking and thinking nothing happens! Train the mind to find the solution.

Letting go is one of the powerful ways we can learn to make our mind work for us and start to develop a real understanding and control of our mind. But the big one is when we are confronted by a real challenge in the moment. When this happens, can you stop your mind from blaming, feeling shame, thinking how it should have been, would have been, why me, I cannot cope, etc? This is the real test and it is one of the reasons we need challenge in our life to help us refine our mental reactions.

Yogi Bhajan tell us this, “If we can master the use and command of the mind, we can enjoy this world and live truthfully, gracefully and prosperously.”

The challenge is that often times we feel that the mind is beyond our reach and impact. The mind acts so fast we do not have the habit or chance to stop it reacting. This is why we need to make a clear relationship with the mind. i.e. realise my thoughts and/ or feelings are not me. My mind is under me so I do not need to react to it. Instead I assess the information the mind gives to me with my 3 functional minds and decide what action to take, based on what is the highest outcome or good in any given situation.

IMG_1021

Practical Solutions –Here are some triggers for you to know your mind is reacting and you are under the mind:

  • Whenever you are subject to the mind you act and become inferior. You communicate to receive sympathy. You may say, “Why is this happening to me? I cannot help my feelings. I acting out of fear”.
  • Also when your negative mind says something to you, immediately it should be accompanied by the positive mind saying the polar opposite which is both assessed by the neutral mind. When this is not happening you know you are stuck in a mind loop.
  • Procrastination, thinking, talking, writing lists but not getting on and doing what is needed.
  • Resistance to what is occurring in the moment. Things not going the way you expect or want.

Yogi Bhajan gives us a really easy solution once we notice we are being triggered into reaction. If you can switch your dominant nostril breathing to the left, your mind will serve you. He says that the moment you start breathing through your left nostril your elementary self comes into to play and the totality of your mind becomes one, then the radiance will increase in your electromagnetic field and you will become very pleasant, positive instead of angry and reactive. Try this out is it really good. Sat nam x raymond.fiona@gmail.com   0778011984 www.sanasuma.co.uk www.3ho.org

Let Go to Gain Everything – Kundalini Yoga Mon 6.15pm 19 March 2018

letting-go-real-life

Letting Go to Gain Everything

Loosening your grip does not mean you lose, it eventually makes you win because you are invested without attachment to the outcome.   You do the work, take the risk but without expectation. Holding on leaves little room for new creation to blossom as we create energetic boundaries that say, “No I expect this, I want that, No thank you!” The hard part is to act without expectation of gain, to do with intention, pure intention without the need to try and manipulate ensure your expectation is met. This is the real yoga. Because eventually we have to complete all our life lessons and then let go of everything the illusion of our five senses has created, this is called Death. But life without conscious living is no life at all, it is all sweat, toll, and worry without the feelings of limitless liberation in this lifetime.   As the bounds of attachment keep us glued to external validation.

 

The earth element is linked with our attachment. When we practice the one minute breath and master the one minute breath it can really give us a sense of liberation, effortless non attachment, having the experience for itself. I had this experience a few times practicing this breath and it was life altering for me. It left me with a touch stone to go back to when life becomes very heavy, when gravity outweighs gratitude.

Practical Solutions – I found his great practical exercise on www.3ho.org website. It can really help those obsessive thoughts especially related to emotions of anger, outrage and shame. Example: Release of suffering that originates with attachment from the activity of the intellectual mind and reactive emotions.

  1. Old habit: If someone insulted you, your intellectual mind understood it and your body responded to the stress. You used to allow your mind to repeat that incident over and over, stressing your body over and over. Although sometimes repeated with different outcomes, no matter how you ran or re-ran the event in your mind and body, neither were satisfied. Repeated self-induced stress equaled suffering.
  2. New habit: If someone insults you, you recall that the definition of a yogi/yogini is someone who is not attached or reactive to either praise or insult. You then recall the profound sensory experiences that you have created earlier through your practice. Recall your sensory experience of being transported into deep tranquility by meditating on the sacred mantra sounds. Recall your sensory experience of total relaxation. Recall your sensory experience of brilliant healing light radiating from your heart. As you drop your old habit of attachment, your suffering ends.

Make Friends with Your Mind

You do not want to stop your heart, lungs, kidneys so why do not want to stop your mind. The common illusion is that meditation stops the mind. What meditation really does is purify the subconscious and unconscious part of the mind so that the conscious mind has greater clarity, focus and can be directed.

Yogi Bhajan describes human being as antennas, constantly broadcasting signals to each other, consciously and unconsciously.   He says, “If a million stations send signals to you, you shall receive them without knowing. That is the unconscious state which the mind has. And then what happens? You get bloated. Overloaded is called bloated. And then your own life starts to fall apart …whatever comes from the mind needs to be worked out.”

What he is telling us is that we need to process the thoughts, emotions and subconscious impressions we are constantly receiving from our mind. If we do not have the habit to do this on a regular basis we become full of mental garbage which dulls our mind. We feel we have no will power, no control over our destiny or destination.

If we do not regularly process what is in the mind Yogi Bhajan reminds us that the subconscious starts to overflow into the conscious. You may have noticed times you just want to talk about everything; this is the subconscious mind flowing into the conscious.

Practical Solutions – How do we Process these signals or thoughts?

My simple understanding of processing a thought or thought sequence is to view it, acknowledge it but let it go. You do not have to analyse it, believe it or be it. Just see what is there, notice and let it flow to the next thought. The kriya we are going to work on this week is really going do some deep cleansing of the subconscious and unconscious mind. This is what you need to do on a regular basis that is why we sit and meditate. We sit and allow the garbage or excess thoughts of the mind to come up and out, we try not to get entangled in them during the meditation but even if this happens it is ok, as when we notice we go back to processing thoughts. It is all find in theory, but practice is essential. For 1 min right now stop what you are doing, close your eyes, breathe and see what is in your mind?

Mantra – Control your mind’s Broadcasts! Kundalini yoga 8 May 6.15pm Prana Lounge, Col 7

e456e9853d2fe92816e7f61cce87c479

For Kundalini yogis, the impact of sound and vibration is the teacher or Guru. We are united with the Infinite through the vibration of the sound current or Naad. Kundalini yoga prepares your body and mind and enhances your hearing capacity so that you can recognise and hear the sound current.

I am asked many times when I play the Gong, how did I learn to play? It is a mixture of developing my intuition over the last 15 years, to play intuitively. But I feel that that would not have been enough. The real key was when I learnt and chanted mantra, particularly the Long Ek Ong Kars for 4 years. This enhanced my hearing capacity to allow me to hear the sound current.

Yogi Bhanjan reminds us, that our minds are not under our control and mantra is something that can bring the mind under our control.

Let’s look at the word Mantra. Man, mind and Tra projection. Whatever sets the projection of the mind is called Tra. Tra brings harmony, Tral means harmonious notes and Tra is the projected wave length of harmony.

If I say fire the arrow at a precise longitude and latitude, I am giving you the Tra or projection for that arrow. This is the same with the mind the Tra sets the projection of where the mind wants to get to.

Mantra is a cyclable, a key, a code, a sound which fixes the projection of the mind. It projects through the mind that secret code.

When we understand that on a quantum level everything in the Universe is in a constant state of vibration manifested in either, light, sound and energy, we understand how powerful chanting mantra can be for us. This is not a religious thing or even a mystical thing, it is a practical technology that works.

Start changing what your mind is broadcasting, by chanting instead of thinking in mind loops. Start listening to your mind, emotions and also what you say. Does your projection really reflect you? Or is it , the negative self, the victim self, the judgemental self, the worrier self? And is this what you want to be broadcasting and resonating? If it is not, be the change you want to see.

The purpose of chanting is to have a direct connection with the soul or infinite self that resides beyond your mind. You chant and your mind hears the sound of infinity through your voice, there is no higher meditation you can do. Start chanting Sat nam to yourself. Even this simple phrase of truth or true self will start making a change to your mind and its projection.

The Anatomy of Depression – Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Tues 11 April 6-7pm@ The Om Space, Col 5

mindfulnessHaving completed 5 days of a deep, detox and spending time rejuvenating myself from within. This week we will focus on opening up to life especially through the breath and understanding the anatomy of depression or negative feelings.

Yogi Bhanjan says that depression is a symptom of shallow breathing and locked pelvic area. He says that people are mistaken in thinking depression and negativity are a result of mood or circumstance. He encourages people to do a heavy breath from the navel point to move negativity or depression very fast.

Practical Tip

Try lots of deep breathing starting from the pelvic floor and breath of fire this week, to counter any negativity in your thoughts and emotions. Start with 3mins daily, but if possible extend this up to 31 mins.

I am GREAT, no matter what I feel – 6.15-7.30pm Mon 7 Nov Prana Lounge

i_am_logo

There are days when I wake up for my early morning practice and classes feeling terrible. It could have been a bad night’s sleep, my physical body feeling off, mental complaints about the oil pulling and cold shower I need to take before I start the practice, a weird dream or all the above. When I experience life through my feelings, (tamas guna) and my minds genetic or intellectual memory, even other people thoughts (rajastic guna) the sensory information and loud mental chatter can be overwhelming. Is goes like this I feel…… I think, I feel like…..etc.

Just because your feelings and mind are the loudest sound in your awareness, does not mean this is the only way to process information coming into your consciousness. Once again the negative mind has been alerted to danger and it is, trying to protect you, with doubt, worry, fear and concern. This processing will keep me physically safe but also narrow my experience and prevent me from experiencing joy and the glory of existence.

We were born into this physical experience to experience our glory. The other way of processing information is to open your system to the Universal mind (Chita) opening your intuition, to gain access to the map of your destiny.   We get confused between intuition and our feelings. Most of us think we are accessing our intuition but really we are just accessing our feelings which we then support with argumentative thought. The reality is we do not want to be outstanding because this makes us stand out and we feel we will be the subject of ridicule or attack. You need to do something with yourself to stand out so you do not compete, compare and compute. If you are competing, comparing or computing you are trying to fit in with the outside world. We are always seeing ourselves through the eyes of others.

I still worry to a smaller and smaller extent what others think of me but I know this is not the only way to perceive reality. I guarantee to myself I am not going to be contained by the mirror of someone else’s external view of me. Let’s try on not play to the audience, a lot of our mental energy goes into determining how you look to others. You are catching lots of subtle signals about how accepted you are by the way other people act and speak to you.

What if there was no other to get an opinion about yourself from, no mirror? How would that look and feel for you? If would be completely freeing. Allow yourself to be YOU do not let anyone or anything shut that down.

Yogi Bhajan said he has never seen birds in a tree singing the dawn chorus and then turning around to each other to ask, “how did I do?” They are also social animals like us.

Your point is not even to influence the majority, your point is to be you, there is no one in this moment who will ever be like you, ever again in infinity.

In order to stop people shutting you down or you shutting down because of other people’s opinions, you have to wake up every day and practice positive mental reinforcements and decide to be confident in you. You stretch into your body glove to feel you, you feel your breath, your sound and tell yourself you are gorgeous. Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder so if you want to see beauty, your judgement needs to be that everything is beautiful. See everything as beautiful because it is just an opinion. Why do we not see beauty in everything, because our negative mind is looking for danger to protect us. We got this idea from millions of years ago, because if we saw everything as beautiful we would feel too uplifted and not see the danger. We no longer need to be that worried. So, say to yourself, “I am Great, MY body may be tired, MY mind may be fearful, feeling lonely, but I am always great. If you change your internal conversation enough to see beauty in everything and say to yourself I am great. Very soon you will be. When you can uplift yourself never mind the mood, you will be able to uplift all around you and then you start feeling really great as well as being great. There will be days where you cannot bring yourself to uplift yourself or anyone else, forgive yourself and move on. Guilt is a form of protection which blunts the lessons we are being given, if you let guilt rule, you will not move forward.
