“This is the story of our evolution through the mind – from the gross to the refined, from darkness into light, from a consciousness of death to immortality.  We follow a natural pattern that is build right in the nerve system itself:  memory, reason, will, direct cognition, inner light perception of the soul which give a universal love of all mankind, psychic perceptions through divine sight, and the heavenly refinement of being in the thousand petal lotus.”  Author Unknown

Hari Om beautiful friends,

  I hope you have enjoyed the last six weeks studying the chakra system as much as I have.  Every time I study them I learn more about myself and my world; the boundary between my inner and outer life seems to become more integrated and I am flooded with peace, faith and love.    Remember that your chakras are beautiful jewels of spinning light within your subtle body.  Sit for a moment and visualize them spinning from the root all the way to your crown.  Even a moment of visualizing your chakras spinning open,  releasing the negative and drawing in the positive,  creates equanimity in your body, mind and spirit that can lift your day to a higher level of feeling, seeing and experiencing.

Yoga this Week – April 4, 2021

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

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

It is no coincidence that we come t the top of the Chakra System on this special day as the crown chakra signifies our connection to spirit, our higher power, and our divine essence.  Just look outside to see the new life springing up all around us.  There is no denying the reliable, perennial miracle that nature shows us year after year.    It is in those moments when we look around our life and see that everything is perfect, beautiful and harmonious that our crown chakra is open.  We open to the power of this energy when we are struggling with difficulties, tragedies or discontent.  We can rely on that powerful spiritual connection to carry us and trust that on some distant day all will make sense again in our lives.

The energy of the Sahasrara Chakra seeks to remind us that we are “All One” and that we can let go of the illusion of separateness; as I am sure we all felt that global connection during this past year.  What happens to another, happens to all of us in some way and we are part of the overall energy of our time.   As you feel the sun shine on your face today, make a mental note that the same sun shines on every single person, flower, and blade of grass 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 without guilt, without fear we can learn to 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

Ajna Chakra – Third Eye

 

Purpose: Generates Intuition, Inner Wisdom, Clairvoyance/Clear Vision

Element: Light/Sight   Location: Center of forehead/brain  Color Association: Indigo   Statement:  I See

Seed Sound:  Om

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.

Henry David Thoreau

The Ajna Chakra is that spiritual center where your intellect  and intuition converge to bring you to the truest and highest intelligence you posses to help you navigate life.  It is the center for visualization, inner knowing and dreams.  Everything in the manifest world was born of a vision, a picture in someone’s mind.  We must see it before we can create it.  The third eye is said to be housed in the pineal gland in the center of the brain.  This is the light sensitive gland, responding to day and night,  producing melatonin regulating our sleep patterns. Deep sleep is integral for our well being and creates a vehicle for us to dream.   Dreams can offer us information and clarity that may not be available to the conscious mind.   It is said that a developed third eye chakra opens the door to lucid dreaming (being able to “be awake” in your dream in order to direct it or understand it) . 
You can think of the ajna chakra as the house that stores our  memories, dreams,  and visions for the futur and it is our perceptions that create these images.   So it is important to think about how you see yourself & your life.  Can you picture yourself achieving your goals or do you have a “doom and gloom” vision of your future.  We can directly effect our world and our life by strengthening our ability to visualize and increasing our trust in our intuition.  Developing a calm, clear connection to our higher power we tap in to an abundance of opportunities and begin to believe we can achieve all we desire in our lives.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”  Leo Buscaglia

Greetings dear yoga students,
 
Hoping this email finds you well.  Spring is here and it is time to embrace our creativity and express our individuality in all we do.   The visshudda chakra is the center of communication and self expression.  When it is balanced we can speak our truth with the wisdom of the heart and the integrity of the mind.  Words are powerful.  They have the ability to heal and destroy relationships.  The words we say to ourselves can empower us or block our own growth.  When we align with our own truth, with the help of divine guidance,  we can speak  with confidence and have the ability to communicate clearly.  When our throat chakra is open and balanced,  we also have the ability to hear others in the same way.
 
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
~Chinese Proverb
 
THE BIRD'S SONG: Learn from birds how to live in the now | The Mindful Word
 
Pay attention to your throat and what rises up each time you feel the need to express yourself, do you block it, deny it, stuff it down?   To clear the energy in your throat, chant, sing, hum….open the gateway with vibrational energy.    As we explore the vishuddha chakra, let us focus on speaking our truth clearly and honestly in the most loving way possible to those in our lives and within our inner dialogue.  Take in the energy of the blue sky.   Listen to the birds sing as they return after the long winter.  Allow their song to fill you with joy, hope and peace…sing your song, speak your truth, dance into the rhythms of the day as creatively as you can expressing the only truth you can express; that which is inside you.
 
Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. ~Emory Austin

This week we focus on the green of the anahata heart chakra. Every time you see the green focus on your breath and expanding your heart center and you will surely find joy.
