Find clarity and your Intuition – Kundalini Yoga

As we enter the month of June, we let go of fear and replace it with common sense that emanates from our awareness created by a clear arcline and developed intuition. Your intuition is there to keep you ahead of the wave and ahead of the times. It does this by allowing the arcline to tune in to, the unfolding of the next moment in time and space.  It replaces fear of the future with trust that what is next is the right step.  For something to be different than it is, you must first accept it as it is. It also helps you feel protected and have a sense of presence which fills the space with your projection. So there is a projected and receptive intuition. How do I develop this you may say?  Meditate focusing on the third eye to develop your neutral mind or intuitive mind.

Here are ways to know what is intuition or a strong positive mind from http://www.3ho.org:

  1. Ego is Logical – Intuition is Creative

Often the ego’s voice will sound logical and rational. The advice is based on a past that no longer exists.

It may sound like, “Of course do this because it worked for you in the past or this method worked for other people.” Intuition rarely sounds logical or rational. It is the creative voice, the solution that seems to come out of left field.

  1. Ego is Fear Based – Intuition is based on Love

Messages from the ego will often be cloaked in fear.

“You need to take that boring evening class to keep your competitive edge or other people will pass you by.” “Keep that job that exhausts you, it gives you a regular pay check. Otherwise you will have no home; how will you survive?” The intuitive voice is rooted in love and reminds you that you have the support of the Universe every step of the way. Often with intuition you do not receive the whole picture all at once; it is one step at a time.

  1. Ego Sounds Harsh – Intuition is Neutral

The ego’s voice is judgmental to the point of being abusive, telling you things about yourself to make you believe that you are a bad person and not to be trusted. This will make you treat yourself in disrespectful and unloving ways. Intuition is neutral in energy and these messages make you treat yourself in loving and respectful ways.

  1. Ego Jumps Around – Intuition is Consistent

Often the ego’s advice will jump around from one message to the next, sometimes contradicting itself. It is like a thief that tries every way possible to get into your house. The messages you receive from your intuition are steady and consistent; you will often hear the same words or phrases over and over again.

Other suggestions by teacher Shiv Charan:

  • Take many moments to be with your breath, this will slow your mind waves down so you can act from an Alpha or Theta brain wave with more awareness.
  • Breathe in your fear and let it go, remember the word Nirbhau in the mul mantra, which means Fearless one of GODs many names. So remind yourself you also part of that fearless one.
  • Keep the phrase “there’s no justice, all just is”. Think about this one.

Feeling Secure in Dangerous Times – Kundalini Yoga 6 May 2019

Feeling Secure in Dangerous Times – Kundalini Yoga

We are still reeling from the shock of these attacks, but we cannot let them close us down.  This week let’s try and understand insecurity  and work out how to effectively deal with our mind in these insecure times.  Yogi Bhajan states, “The only purpose of life is not to be scared of insecurity. Insecurity does nothing but scare a person, It’s a scarecrow.”

Feelings of insecurity arise when we do not trust ourselves, others or situations. When we feel like this we subconsciously send out the message that we are not worthy, good enough to love, be happy, prosperous, enjoy life, etc.  This closing ourselves down and being stuck in our negative mind and reactive personality can leave us feeling very vulnerable.  Learning to feel comfortable in our own skin in any situation is key.  Allow yourself to feel sad, fear, upset, angry but do not let your decisions or actions be guided by these emotions.  Process them on the mat, in your meditation or by being conscious of your emotions.  Now is the time to practice being the watcher, watch yourself, be aware and let go. So we can help the collective consciousness let go of these tragic events. Guru Singh says make everywhere your home so you feel dominion not the insecurity to dominate people or places.  Energetically our insecurity is related to our third chakra which reflects our personal power and sense of self.  It is also directly related to our stomachs, situated to the left of the sternum.  When this energy centre is not strong and balanced, we lack the trust in our power, we settle for bad relationships, jobs, family situations because we are too afraid to take a risk and change things.   We  use our stomachs to numb ourselves, avoid feelings by overeating and feelings physically too full.

Practical Solutions

Focus on your strengths – Research shows that when you concentrate on using your signature strength in different ways everyday it makes you happy and you are not focusing on your weaknesses which make us feel insecure.   In fact If you are using any 4 of your top 7 strengths you feel your life is in flow.  For example my top signature strength is Fairness, so if I include someone who is marginalised, this makes me feel really good.  What do you think our character strength is?

Ishnaan -Take a cold shower every morning.  Well Ishnaan is a little more than just a cold shower please look up the technique.  I really recommend it, it helps get rid of those negative thoughts, complaints about lack of sleep, sadness, etc that you experience sometimes after dreams or subconsciously.  Yogi Bhajan says whenever you feel bad, take a cold shower and then towel yourself down vigorously until your skin feels flush and tingly.  This uses our nervous system and capillaries to make the blood chemistry changes which will help with how we feel and our security.

Mantra – Yoga Ji, said using the firs puri of the Japji, Sochai, Soch n Hovee… as well asChattra Chakkra Vartee will support in getting rid of insecurity and bring victory to the soul.

Meditation – When we go within and see our thoughts and emotions when we meditate we realise that these thoughts and emotions are not us, in fact we become consciously aware and this helps us separate the insecure feelings from our true self and connection to our infinity or soul Sat nam x raymond.fiona@gmail.com   0778011984  www.sanasuma.co.uk  www.3ho.org

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?
