Warm greetings to you!!!
I just love this: our struggles are our growth opportunities.
This is an opportunity to expand out of contracted ways of seeing life. As we arrive in our journey at the crown chakra, which offers you the gift of boundlessness, this is the invitation.
It is an unnatural state to feel limited. Deep down you know it is not your true nature. Your true nature is free and boundless… beyond the idea of life and death even!
We have a beautiful specific meditation and kriya this week, to assist you into your experience of infinity, your infinite nature. It releases (dissolves) the idea that you are finite. And it is designed to release contracted ways of being and seeing. And as you know, contracted beliefs create a contracted body. And vice versa.
So breathe in deeply and slowly, open up, it is so worth it.
You are so vast….
Meditation enhances your brain capacity, youthfulness and overall inner healing; even science is proving this nowadays. It shifts your perception from limitation to open-minded creative thought and hence manifestation.
The crown centre plays a vital part in this. To embrace (acknowledge) your infinite potential is key to tapping into this field of consciousness. As I often say in class, quantum physics has shown that there is infinite potential around you each and every moment, right now … and that your awareness and attention to this activates these potentials. As we say: where your attention goes, energy flows. This is resonance. Energy work. Awareness. Attainment. Vibration. Alignment. Atonement. There are so many terms for this. Flow. Being present. Presence. Allowing. Surrender. Opening. Trust. Self-realisation.
These words carry the same message with the same outcome but in slightly different ways that the mind will have a filed day analysing.
So you may wish to pause right now, and ask yourself: where is my attention going during most of my day? What kind of ideas am I clinging to, associating with, entertaining?
I am not saying these need to be ignored or suppressed. I am saying it is very powerful to become aware of the kind of potentials we tune into, what we energise with our belief. It is powerful to see our own limitations. From there we can then expand. Seeing this is the opening to expand thinking and awareness.
Again, your kundalini yoga practise is designed to help and support you in this seeing, from deep within your own wisdom; it assists in this transcendence of unconscious habits (that keep you trapped in a cycle). Nothing stays the same, everything shifts, with this seeing there is openness and trust and far less pain and suffering, that is all; oh and it happens quicker than just by battling it on your own, without meditation/kundalini yoga.
It is like living in our little own box. Same ideas, patterns, fears, dreams, thoughts. Now we can enter a larger box, a new box, boxes.. until boxes expand and dissolve all together. This is how I see it. It is fabulous to see our boxes. Our limits, and there is nothing wrong with them. Only if you wish to expand, it is most useful to begin to look at them, straight, directly, fearlessly. That is liberation in itself. And liberation is another word for boundlessness, infinite awareness.
With this chakra we are connecting with the pineal gland. The pineal gland is stimulated by light. It functions on light. Production of serotonin is one aspect it is famous for.
It is called SAHASRARA.
It is linked to the health of our cerebral cortex and central nervous system.
When this centre is working for you, it shows up as:
- Being in but not of this world
- The experience of all as one
- The integration, expression and actualisation of peak experiences
- Saintliness (halo/light energy in images is the expanded crown chakra)
- All knowing, unveiled
- expanded total awareness of self and all; conscious
When this centre needs balancing it can manifest as:
- doubt and denial of the spiritual reality
- religious extremism (denial of it or extreme versions of it)
- Abuse of ‘lower’ life forms (human imperialism)
