Yoga this Week – March 31, 2013

 

 

A human being is a part of the whole called by us “the universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical illusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening the circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” – Albert Einstein

 

 

 

 

Crown Chakra – Sahasrara – Thousand Petal Lotus

  • Color – violet, white
  • Physical Location – top of head
  • Element – Light
  • Attributes – Supreme Bliss – Samadhi
  • Purposes – intuitive knowing, connection to one’s spirituality, integration of the whole
  • Spiritual Lesson – spirituality, living in the now, unity, connection
  • Mental and Emotional Issues – discovery of the divine, lack of purpose, loss of meaning or identity, trust, selflessness, humanitarianism, ability to see the bigger picture in the life stream, devotion, inspiration, values, ethics
  • Information Stored Inside Crown Chakra – duality, magnetism, controlling patterns, emotional feelings (joy, anger, fear), empathy, compassion

 

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer.

Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Greetings dear Yoga Students and Happy Easter to those of you who are celebrating!!

The crown chakra signifies our connection to spirit, our higher power, and our divine essence.  We feel this chakra open in those moments when we look around our life and see that everything is perfect, beautiful and harmonious.  We can also open to the power of this energy when we are struggling with difficulties, tragedies or discontent.  We can allow our divine spirit to carry us and trust that “some distant day” all will make sense again in our lives.

The energy of the Sahasrara reminds us that we are “All One” and that we can let go of that illusion of separateness.  As you feel the sun shine on your face today, make a mental note that that sun shines on every single person, flower, and blade of grass that you see without distinction.  We are all part of the same whole, whatever your spiritual belief system might include, we are all children of this universe, “no less than the trees and the stars” and we will be carried in times of great joy and times of deep despair.   Connect, plug in, listen and allow yourself to receive all the gifts that your divine spirit has to offer.  Allow Grace always…

There are joys which long to be ours.  God sends ten thousands truths, which come about us like birds seeking inlet; but we are shut up to them, and so they bring us nothing, but sit and sing awhile upon the roof, and then fly away.

Henry Ward Beecher

  1. Hi Amy,

    Can you sign me up for the Yoga Jam on the 27th, please? Thank you!

    I emailed Jack about starting the Reiki Master training soon and how you were interest in taking it with me. He said he thinks we can work something out. He says the heart of the training is 4 attunements that are an hour long each. That’s all he said. I asked him about pricing and some other questions. No answer to that yet.

    Peace and Love,
