Warm greetings dear Yogis!
Sooooo … is regular practise worth it, and what actual difference does it make in YOUR life?
Well there is much I can say …
Firstly: Everything we do in life is a pattern, and a habit to a very large degree … some say that the way you do one thing is the way you do life. I wouldn’t quite generalise like that. We have different strategies that we adopted or developed in our lives for making life safe, enjoyable and good for us, according to our idea of ‘good’. This is how it is for ALL of us.
Some of our ways/strategies/habits WORK well for us, while some don’t. If you delve in deep right now you can discover which habits/strategies work for you and which don’t. And if you apply the ones that work, to the ones you want to also have working, you can simply do this!
In general, when you get things done to your highest fulfilment, you have aligned yourself with a strategy that works, and you have neurologically wired yourself well in that context.
For example you may get to certain gatherings or parties or functions on time, excited, ready, radiant … but other situations in life you have to drag yourself and you resist, even though you know that it doesn’t serve you to resist …
Like coming to yoga or going to the gym or taking regular nature walks for example … you KNOW you will benefit, you know you always feel better for having gone … every time! But why is it not a regular habit, since it serves you so well?
I know from the sharing from friends, family and yogis, that this can be the hardest challenge … to prioritise on excellent self care, to really get it into a healthy regular rhythm …
Like brushing teeth, it feels good, and you know it benefits you, and you feel better for doing it. This is a healthy habit for most of us. So is good sleep, healthy eating, and excellent hydration …
A the heart of this is your (our) unconscious programming … these habits … and to shift them, firstly we must SEE these, acknowledge the habits that don’t quite work so well for us, and then to let them go we benefit greatly by replacing them with positive habits. This literally is rewiring yourself … and with regular positive action, this becomes instilled and natural, and the resistance drops away, and your life soars in amazing positive ways!!! And we have specific mediations for that and kriyas to help you with this in a very potent way … yes… but once a month is going to have a very small impact … just like brushing teeth once a month is better than never, but hey .. you know the rest.
The thing is this: Your unconscious mind tends to be wired to keep things stable and the same … it considers that a safety thing … keeping you alive to exist, and breathe and replicate in basic terms .. the higher planes of awareness will offer greater quality of life and transcendence fro the basics.., allowing you to live the fulfilled life meeting ALL your aspects of expression and being …. Isn’t that what everyone would love?
Why dip into the palette of only 12 colours, for your canvas called life, when you can dip into 122 or really infinite colours?
I have been talking about this in our kundalini yoga classes for over 6 years now.. cause this is inspiring to me, it is finding a key, and working WITH this knowledge! It is waking up to your true incredible magnificence! I LOVE seeing this!!! In that state you have energy, vibrancy, deep fulfilment … and most of all peace within the adventure …
So the thing is that you can see this, and rewire old habits into new ones, by forming the new habit and committing to regular practise to actually turn it into a NEW healthy, supportive lifestyle … a WAY of life, of being. The more you can see it as a vision, and touch it as a self-committed act, the more it is here and NOW … Hence the power of now!
Notice your resistance, the same excuses … why is your highest self care not your priority? It is illogical to me … when you are in your best form and shape and capacity, is not everyone around you benefitting hugely also, including the world? Don’t you make better more wholesome choices and decisions from taking care of yourself, feeling great in your skin, aligned with self love and awareness of our true nature? Truly confident, truly alive! Life is relatively short … why wait?
We are not happy when we are stagnant, have you noticed?
Moving along, exploring the adventure called life, being more of who we truly are, excites us all … it is a natural way of being in joy .. present, open… embracing your full self … this happens when you dedicate yourself to yourself, your divinity, your infinite potential … it is like you are metaphorically sitting on a treasure chest and too afraid, or too unconscious, or too otherwise distracted, so you won’t look there … (yet!) (but you can right NOW).
Amazing but true.
And I will say, what I said for years, and it is so wonderful to recognise this: You affect the expression of your genetic code with your way of life. So don’t be afraid of the genes in your ancestry … be different and your genes will reflect this, and activate and deactivate accordingly, self care, increasing wellness on every single level physically… and mental and spiritual balance is essential.. some call it work-life-balance — … hence you do have the kingdom within you …. love yourself, take awesome care by meditating, being where you feel happy, relaxed and alive .. present … stick to YOUR heart’s values, your soul’s passion … dare, be bold, live life!
This way you will safe time, be more in joy, be creative, productive and feel great like never before!
Below is a great link for you to read up further o the science of this.
We are creatures of habit, and to change then we have to dare to commit to our best practises, daily, even just meditate 5 minutes in the morning and night …the resets the old ways … slowly … practise yoga (union with yourself – body, mind, soul) as often as you can with us … it literally can save you so much time, through physical health (reduced health care issues on all levels, imagine …), through mental health (harmony in relationship is increased) .. better decisions are made from a great place within you (no back peddling and fixing up decisions that were not aligned), which will include the highest good of all concerned, including the planet …
….we NEED this kind of awareness now more than ever …. so your self care literally is everything … for you, your family, friends, the world … there is no way around it in my mind … hence my commitment to self care is my number 1 priority always! For some reason I have recognised this since I am a child and perhaps I really messed this up in a previous life and suffered so much and now want to help all of humanity, who can’t yet see this fully, to recognise this .. I am sure I can be annoying at times about this passion of mine …I try to recognise when to be quiet, as the messenger has to be knowing when the time to speak is, and when it just pushes some away … all in divine timing, every wisdom comes when the one is ready to hear it …
Here is that link:
We have great techniques for supporting your change … breath of fire, meditation for self commitment, meditation for strength in caliber, meditation to heal addictions, meditation to align with intuitive and heart of self.
.. when your breath and chakras are aligned in a harmonious way over time, this allows you to be very strong, aware, clear and make incredible choices to match that frequency and mental plane.
In class you are in a field that helps accelerate that for you and it deeply nourishes you on your journey …
I am here to hold space, and teach the science of that. As I will this week, themed around support for change and self realisation.
So incredibly joyful about that, I feel I am soaring like a kite …
A few new events are coming up… full details below in the image!
Join us after class on Sunday the 18th of June to get the vibrational lift, support emotionally and spiritually by exploring essential oils after and during the class … the amazing Renee Baillie is specifically joining us, and it will be totally awesome energy!!! More details below!
Here is another article about the benefits of kundalini yoga for you, so you remember what a gift you are giving yourself and the world:
Below is more info on what I offer and what’s happening with kids yoga, adult meditation, workshops, our upcoming retreat and more … like our Himalayan Ayurvedic Kundalini Yoga retreat. There are still only 6 spaces left, and I have kept it open for yogis I personally know, and not advertised internationally yet. But will possibly do that after June. We had 20 spaces and now only 6 spaces left. Flights go up significantly as this is the holiday season (December), so if you wish to join us, for an glorious transformative journey, now will suit finances better than later ;-). In fact flights can actually fill up and we won’t be able to fly together and potentially good flights flights from Australia to Delhi can be fully booked up by the middle of the year. It is true. And then only business and first class are left.
See you in class.. a safe, silent, meditative environment to go deeply into yourself and remember who you truly are!
Oceans of love!!!
