Soul Mate – The yogic science of relationships, 11 Sept 2017, 6.15-7.30pm @Prana Lounge

untitledOver the last few weeks we have talked about the mind, the frequency and going beyond the small I, to really connect with ourselves on a level which gives us the bigger picture of life. Let’s apply this to our relationships.

We all are lonely and also have a longing. A longing to form loving, intimate relationships with passionate, deep, connections, at every level in our life.  To understand this we need to examine, where does this longing or need come from? What is the reality or the Maya of these feelings?

The impulse to form relationships comes from our soul or spirit.  The spirit is longing to know itself.  We are not just longing for a relationship with someone else. We know, we can be in a crowded room full of people but still feel alone.  We are longing for a deep connection with ourselves, our soul. The soul is considered a thing, with a weight just less than 1 once. It is the barometer in us that gives us our purpose in life and makes us feel in harmony with existence.    This is why when you practice Kundalini Yoga and meditation you start to get this cosy and fulfilling feeling.  You do not even realise what it is, but you feel it. Just this feeling of deep connection with your heart beat, body and breath makes you feel really good.

The feelings you get when you connect to another person is similar, you are also trying to connect with that person’s soul.  That is why when you have a deep, fulfilling relationship, a merger with another person, you feel so good because once again it is allowing you to experience the infinite in them. It is when you go back to being your personality and they become their personality that there are conflicts again. If you can see yourself and them as soul, you can move beyond your need to fight and be right.

The Practice

This week sit with yourself and start to develop a real and beautiful relationship with yourself, not because of the things you have or the personality you are, just because you can feel your breath moving in and out of your nostrils, your heart beat, the feeling of air touching your skin, etc. Then connect to this subtle life force energy in nature, your partner, friends, family and colleagues.  See through their personalities, outside projections to the heart and soul which resides inside you and them.

What is Real? Really? Kundalini Yoga and Meditation Classes

teenage yoga class

Have you ever just had a moment where you feel so over whelmed or uneasy that you do not know what to do next? Well I had one of those moment on Sunday morning. I just sat there thinking why an earth do I feel so terrible, when nothing is wrong. Well my brain did what brains do when it’s unable to explain what it is right in front of you or what you are feeling . . . it improvises.

The brain will try to make sense of any situation that has zero sensory input, or that has an overwhelming sensory input . . . it will make something up. It will try to explain the zero-sense with common-sense. This happens when you experience a gong bath for example. The vast overtones you hear are mentally unexplainable; your brain makes up a story to compensate for the sensation that’s incomprehensible, and or intolerable . . . Both an overwhelming sensory presence and complete sensory absence will cause this.

There’s a substance that science is experimenting with, called vantablack, made of carbon nano-tubes. It absorbs all the light that strikes it, it’s the blackest of black. In both these situations they reflect nothing . . . you see nothing. There’s no place on the surface of the Earth that’s capable of this phenomenon . . . only deep-space, the deep-underground, and carbon-crystal nano-tubes or vantablack. Physical vision works by sensing reflected photons (light particles) from all objects; your brain uses this light to mentally construct the world you experience. When no light is reflected, and you’re unable to experience the outside, you draw imagery from inside. You call this imagination, but it’s really always mixing with your physical sight. A bit like Harry Potters invisible cloak. This is the nature of your senses — they’re not exact — they’re estimates; always compensating for lacking data with imaginary mixtures of opinions and conclusions . . . fables of the present.

Practical

1.Watch your mind and emotions this week, keep a journal that notes how — not real — reality is; relax your preconceived ideas about what you think of people, likes and dislikes, opinions.

2.If your mind gets fixated on a problem or situation or sickness, visualise this as a point, now mentally turn your head and look behind it. See 360 degrees of space which can be the solution, space of health, etc. the polarity that also exists in the same moment as your problem. Just acknowledging that this other space exists is enough to resolve any situation.
