Sound Guru- learn to redirect your mind and solve your problems – 14 Nov 6.15-7.45pm Kundalini Yoga and Gong bath

gurunanak_-_sewa_singhThe nature of Vibration

Every element of the Universe is in a constant state of vibration manifested to us as light, sound, and energy. The human senses perceive only a fraction of the infinite range of vibration, so it is difficult to comprehend that sound and vibration underlies and sustains all creation.

What is Naad and Sound Current?  

Naad means “the essence of all sound.” Naad is the universal code behind language and therefore behind human communication.

The sound current or Shabad is the frequency that can dissolve your personality and mind patterns so you are left in your elemental pure state.

The Shabad Guru, (Shabad- sound current and Guru -teacher)  the sound that is the teacher, is the quantum technology developed and given to us by the enlightened master Guru Nanak which directly alters our consciousness through the power of the Naad removing the constrictions and distortions of the ego.

Guru Nanak was born on 14 November 1469 into a relatively high caste Hindu family. At a very young age, he began questioning everything: the empty rituals that seemed meaningless; the arbitrary division of people based on caste; the lower status of women. He studied with yogis, scholars and developed a very high level of consciousness.

During an enlightenment experience he bought a new quantum technology to humanity. He realised that by using the sound current you could reach altered states of mind and enlightenment, i.e. to experience the finite you and the infinite you at the same time. He recorded his experiences in the Song of the Soul, Japji.

Practical

If I had a traumatic event that happened 10 years ago but I am now pulling that event into the present moment because I do not know how to control my mind, I can become easily manipulated by outside events. When my mind is constantly anaylsing the events of 10 years ago I am filling up my electromagnetic field with these thought currents. My electromagnetic field now begins to broadcast these thoughts out, sending me more of the same problems, a catch 22 loop. What I need to do is move beyond this event. I do this by using the quantum technology of sound to redirect my mind to be in a better state of awareness.

Reciting Japji and other Shabad sounds over time redirects the mind. The mind is going to go where you point it. So when we use the science of naad we are using our mind in an intelligent way. It helps us deal with our mental problems and projections by directing our mind into the neutral space. (Please see last week’s blog 7.11.2016 on neutral mind). Kundalini yogic science is a transportation system which enables you to view your problems from a different perspective, (the perspective of the neutral mind) that can allow you to drop problems out of your awareness instead of getting stuck in an analytical fog.

For example, reciting a Shabad mantra like SA, TA, NA, MA or listening to the Gong will redirect the mind to change its elemental perception of what it is focusing on.

    • Instead of my problems suddenly my mind is filled with this sound, rhythm and momentum which creates a physical chemical change in my perception.
  • Through Naad yoga, using our lips, moving our tongue to hit certain meridian points in our upper pallet, we can alter consciousness by changing the chemical composition of the fluids and neurochemicals in the brain.

 

It moves me into a different state of awareness where I can deal with my problems by dropping them out of my awareness. Problems fade as you move past them and move to a different space of awareness.

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.

Yogi Bhajan’s Practical Science of Yoga

yogi bhajan cool

Having watched Yogi Bhajan’s teaching on YouTube LA889, I thought it would be fun and also useful to disseminate some of his practical yogic wisdom to you in his words. Try some or all of these tips for good health because this is what yoga is really about. Yogi Ji says, “Yoga is great because it can help us cure sickness, depression, it can help you with weight problems, it can help you in your daily life, it teaches you daily involvement with your body and mind. I especially like Kundalini Yoga because it is short and effective and it is for house holders. You do not have to remain celibate. It is a very human yoga”.

Food and how to eat?

“The best alternative medicine is good food and daily naps. Food is your insurance for health.

Eat little and drink little every 2.5 hours. We must chew our food. The main diseases start when food goes into your body, unchewed which is unsweetened by our saliva. We must train ourselves to chew.” Chew each mouthful at least 35 times. You will have less gas, your food will give you more nutrition and you will feel full and satisfied with much less food. If possible eat in peace and quiet, concentrating on chewing your food and tasting the flavour.

Waking up Routine

“Just like a cold car that needs to be warmed up before you put it into gear. The body is the same, it is at rest at night and needs to slowly be stimulated before it starts going. So do not just jump out of bed if you want to remain healthy. There are things to do in the morning every day. It is your body which is asking for mercy, kindness and compassion and care. All you need is a good vital and healthy body to give you enough strength to face the day.   When you wake up to prevent back pain you need to do cat stretch 3 times on each side and then adjust your navel energy by doing stretch pose. Then move the feet up and down to adjust the meridian points in the whole body.” Now get out of bed and have a cold shower (see Ishnaan).

ishnaan

Ishnaan – hydrotherapy

“Technically it is called mercy. You do not have any mercy for yourself, you look after your car, or your house but you do not look after yourself. You need to go into the shower and massage yourself all over balancing your hydro level in the water, which is required. Stand one foot on top of the other and massage them, massage the inside of your forearm, underneath your armpits and your chest. Vigorously massage your whole body. Now dry your body by rubbing hard with a course towel until your skin is pink to increase blood circulation in your skin, so your skin will remain youthful.

You do not drink enough water in the day. You need to urinate properly. When you begin to urinate you need to stop and start, several times. This will exercise the muscles of your pelvic floor and keep them strong. This is like mulbhand.

Now brush your teeth in the morning, at the end you need to take your toothbrush to the back of the throat and clear your monkey glands. They hold all the bacteria you have taken in during the day and night. This mucus must not enter your stomach. Gad that mucus out.”

Deep Sleep

“If you want a deep sleep you need to splash your eyes and face with cold water before you sleep.”

Head and Hair

“Massage your scalp with your fingers, then roll a towel on the hair and tighten it around the head so all 26 bones come together daily. Just for a few minutes.   Also deeply comb your scalp to change the electromagnetic field.”

Prevent Water Retention

“Get a wet towel wring it out and beat your back, it balances your sugar and salt intake. It prevents water retention, spank your back and the kidneys become stimulated and balanced.”

Knee and Ankle problem

Stand up on your toes and sit down a few times, this will stop you having problems with knees and ankles.

Practice this Week:

Sunia(n) Antar Meditation

*DRINK A GLASS OF WATER FIRST*

SIT. Easy Position (legs folded).

EYES. Closed, rolled to 3rd eye (brow) point.

MUDRA (HANDS). Place arms across the chest and lock hands under armpits, with palms open against the body. Raise the shoulders up tightly against the earlobes without cramping the neck. Pull chin into neck.

BREATH. Automatic, natural and slow (or count for five in, five out, until it slows).

TIME. 3 to 11 minutes.

YOGI BHAJAN COMMENTS. This meditation is called Sunia(n) Antar. It is very good for women. It is essential at times when one is worried or upset and doesn’t know what to do, or when one feels like screaming, yelling, and misbehaving. When out of focus or emotional, attention should be given to the body’s water balance and breath rate. Humans are approximately 70 percent water, and behavior depends upon the relation of water and earth, air and ether. Breath, representing air and ether, is the rhythm of life. Normally we breathe 15 times a minute, but when we are able to rhythmically slow down the breath to only 4 breaths per minute, we have indirect control over our minds. This control eliminates obnoxious behavior, promoting a calm mind regardless of the state of affairs. When there is a water imbalance in the system, and the kidneys are under pressure, it can cause worry and upset. Drinking water, pulling the shoulders up to the ears and tightly locking the entire upper area creates a solid brake that can be applied to the four sides of the brain. After 2 or 3 minutes, thoughts will still be there, but one does not feel them. This is a very effective method of balancing the functional brain.

The Yogic Science of Thought

20130910-123522.jpg

Studies on the brain show that when a thought wave is created, it is a weak, dim signal. For many years it was believed that thoughts only had influence on our own brain.

Subsequently they have discovered even though each one of our thoughts is a weak signal, it has the ability to immediately attached on to our electromagnetic field.

Electromagnetic fields hold information. That is how information is recorded on a computer hard drive. It is also how we use to record programs on magnetic tape. It is all done by electromagnetics. So after you drop your body (die) all that is left is an electromagnetic field with the recording of all the thoughts, emotions and experiences you have had.

When our electromagnetic fields come into contact with another electromagnetic field (if you are not sensitive enough) you will not know if you are having your own thoughts or those of your neighbours. Our thoughts can affect other people. Most of the time our thoughts are so dispersed that they are very ineffective. But when we focus like during prayer or focussed visualisation it allows a thought to fully permeate our electromagnetic field which allows us to influence the electromagnetic fields of others. When you have a thought about someone it is a bit like phoning their mobile number, we are connecting to their electromagnetic field. Einstein also discovered that no matter how many millions of miles you put between 2 electrons they will still mimic each other. Send me a good thought and I will receive it.  When I see the beauty in someone, that thought of beauty is going to permeate my aura making me seem beautiful to others, even if I have lots of other faults.

When you chant during class, you are sending a message to your electromagnetic field to connect with your infinite generic identity, the infinite electromagnetic field or as we say the higher self. Imaging done on the electromagnetic field after singing and chanting show it glowing. Loose yourself in mantra or uplifting music and your electromagnetic fields gets saturated with those high vibrations and suddenly you are feeling amazing and so is everyone else around you. This is why the Dervish whirl, with their heads tipped to one side to recycle the kundalini energy that is following through their bodies.

 

 

Practical Lesson

Next time you are in mental dis ease whether it was triggered by someone or an event, cut through it by getting lost in a positive mantra. When a lot of negative thoughts come to you like this: (-). Cut it in the center, what does it become? Positive: (+). So we pick up one mantra which is a positive sound thought and repeat it until the minus becomes a plus. Try the Om Namo Guru Dev Namo mantra by Snatam Kaur Khalsa, I will post it on our facebook page this week. Start living your life through a conscious decision to understand your mind.
