Warm Greetings to you on this wonderful Valentine’s day – symbolic of love, world wide ..
Of course it is love day, every day, every moment …
Often Valentine’s day is an opportunity for so many realisations: why am I waiting for that day to express my love differently? Do I think about the gift of love around me usually? Love for YOURSELF is what I always come right back to. When you can truly love yourself and journeyed into your heart centre, your life is truly a loving expression of kindness, compassion, joy, freedom, vibrant living, peaceful inner union …
It seems ALL relationship challenges arise from an inherent lack of inner wounding where we didn’t feel loved enough and took it personally. The can even become a lifestyle for overcompensation and giving so much, that we are depleted, in the aim to receive more love from another.
If we get that love, from another, can we really embrace and enjoy it though? Do we feel insecure because we feel we need to work for it and earn it again and again? Like a habitual pattern that usually arose with one or both of our parents?
Or do we ignore and get cynical about love, becoming super independent so we don’t need anything and we just cover up that need through all kinds of habits like perhaps entertainment (gaming, T.V. movies, parties, music) or food, or some sort of temporary happiness giving action? Always on a wave and feeling a let down when it’s over. Cause all will always start and end. To a certain degree that is so about everything … even you inhale stops to become an exhale .. even you become unconscious when you sleep … we all are constantly shifting … which is a divine truth and great beauty. When we want to hold on to something, it hence becomes a true torture of sorts.
So if one thing fluctuates (like e.g your partner, then you relate to the friend for connection, or a parent, or a book, movie, drink, food etc). When will this ever relax and balance?
Only within yourself. This is what psychology teaches, and all the masters teach it in various forms. Spiritually it is union with yourself, with the divine (any name you prefer for this) within… this is the pointer to true home, true love, everlasting joy and true happiness …
If you see a healer or counsellor or psychotherapist, it will always boil down to that wounded inner child, where love was not felt, that is playing out its needs to be met.
So now you can meet this inner love. And heal those longings for being met and loved from another. This is not an easy road, for as you change, people may challenge you more, questioning your new self loving and empowered ways, and you need strength to move through that …
So ANY loving healthy self care is the start for this, once you are aware of this wish to heal your heart and deeply fall in love wit yourself …
Awareness is here and now, as you stop … feel and reflect … where in your life are you reaching out and not met, feeling agitated, frustrated .. confused even?
Just seeing and feeling and then loving this, being with it, is a great beginning. This needs to be seen, and met and then can easily dissolve.
In kundalini yoga the self loving can only increase each time, as we become aware that we are searching for home, that we are home within, full of love… (just then my parents came by for a surprise visit, so cute, they brought me a potted sunflower!!! I love sunflowers!!!!! I showed them the finished yogi space “Infinite Yogi” .. so beautiful to see it done! They both helped me in the last few days with final preparations, it was so incredibly helpful and as always they both were just there!!! …. Then they could not stay for tea or a chat, as they had precious shopping of food and plants in the car..)
Sooo how will kundalini yoga benefit you in your self love, self healing?
Firstly we have heart chakra kriyas (yogic sequences), which teach you to release anguish from the heart and open into its divine beauty using breath, awareness, mantra, mudra and sound ….
We balance the whole being you are: physically streching , releasing through pranic squeeze, alignment and lengthening … so the body can rejuvenate and readjust …
You learn to let go, hereby saving yourself so much energy which you usually expend in order to stay tight.
The reconnection during class is evident in all students, and as you meet yourself, you reconnect to truth, your inner divinity, and hence joy and freedom. Freedom to love yourself, others and to receive love and be ok on your own deeply too.
Every answer to every question is here within that, for example:
Why do I attract seeming “bad” luck? The “wrong” partner (they are always “right” for everyone is teaching you things inherently about yourself), a “hard” life, financial stress, inner turmoil.. Why am I racing through life? Why do I feel I am disconnected? Why is my physical body having illness? How can I find my true life purpose? Why has my zest and passion for life reduced? How can I heal my broken heart, body, spirit?
All this rests in your deep loving connection in your beautiful heart… waiting to be truly opened and flowering like that most radiant of all blooms!
And we are specifically focussing on this this week ~ HEART CHAKRA WEEK
You will also see that those who are deeply connected to their heart and lovingness create what seems like flow ( even heartbeat=flowing grace), they have playfulness (freedom cause they love themselves), joy (they follow their spirit).. confidence (they are at home within and have compassion and understanding of the world)… they seem to be ok with relaxation and hard work when it is needed… they follow their intuition because in their heart this intuitive self is supported, heard and not seen in fear … love leads into open seeing …
If you want to heal your childhood, I highly recommend going into your heart space … for if we don’t heal it, we re-enact these woundings in all our relationships to a certain greater or lesser extend …
So here we are!!! I’m here to support you, hold space, share the ancient, incredible sacred knowledge of white Tantra – Kundalini Yoga … so you remember and embody the fact that you are the divinity finding itself … we all help each other, and all the self love we find for ourselves, truly creates the shift in the world. Your inner work is the gift to the world.
Happy love day every day ..(love- week, -month, -year, -life!) !!!!
