Beautiful Mala necklaces hold a special significance for the wearer based on where they’re from, the power imbibed into them. All in all we feel and experience an energy resonance while holding the beads and this increases over time as we wear and use them for meditation.
Traditionally a mala means garland and has 108 beads strung together and one guru bead, in the very center, symbolic of the light and the teacher who helps lift our awareness making us self-reliant and independent. The guru bead is also a marker for your fingers during meditation and mantra repetition and you’ll feel it easily while using the mala with your eyes closed.
A common way to use the mala is to engage in a japa, or mantra meditation. The repetitive recitation of a single sound, such as om, a few words, such as om so ham, or your personal mantra which can be deeply transformative is done once per bead. Tracing the beads of the mala with your fingers can help you keep track of japa, and you can set an intention to repeat one, two or three malas per day as a start.
Similar to praying with rosary beads, meditating with a mala helps calm the mind, deepens the breath and gradually re-directs focus of the mind away from daily worries and towards positive and spiritual thought patterns.
Meditation is well known to positively affects the brain and mood. However finding the time and practice that enables us to be still, calm and focused for 10 minutes or more is generally quite challenging. This is where your mala and mantra are essential tools for achieving better attention, wellness and enhanced self-awareness.

Be Grateful for all that you are. It takes discipline and effort to switch to a different channel where we can look from a higher perspective with more gratitude. When we do this, it can take us directly into our hearts, and then from our heart’s intelligence we are able to create from a more resourceful place.
Gratitude is the attitude that gives us the inspiration we need so we can feel more love and appreciation for our lives. That is because Gratitude is a powerful energy surge that raises our vibrational frequencies to the level where we can see beyond the immediate appearance of disharmony to the truth of the dynamic force of the Divine working in our lives.
This expansive presence of Divine Pure Potential can work with us to create a life that is more in keeping with what we want to experience. It responds to our thoughts and feelings directly. In the new energy system in which we are living, we have clear choices about how we want to live. At this time of heightened energy frequencies, we have been given a blank slate where we can formulate our lives. We do this by asking the Universe to work through us so we can be in alignment with the highest wisdom of our Soul. Though this may sound simple, because of our habitual ways of thinking, it takes an extreme focus of attention on what we truly want to experience instead of what we don’t like about ourselves and the lives we are living.
Our focus of attention is a powerful tool, simple but not easy; The magnetic energy of our thoughts and feelings is the seed that creates attraction to a different experience. That is why keeping our energy frequencies as uplifted as possible makes such a difference in what we are experiencing in life. When there is nothing else we can think of to do, being grateful can be the key that turns the tides of our feelings into the channels of new life and wellbeing. It is an amazing and powerful tool just waiting for us to put it into action. With this simple tool you can transform your world as you become more grateful for all that you already have in your life and what is being offered to you from All That Is.

When you live your life from a vibration of love that love has to flow first of all through you to then be expressed towards others. Therefore, when you accept love in all its forms, you are accepting the love of your divinity.
Your authentic self is you expressing as your soul. As you listen to your intuition you are listening to your soul or source. When you are authentic, you are talking, living, creating from a place that resonates with you and helps you to feel good. When you are in balanced alignment, you feel good! When you feel good, you are authentic in your life and how you express yourself.

Let yourself drop what no longer fits. Release it like you’re simply taking a step forward. You are.
This is how life works. The past falls away behind us. Over and over again. We’re taught to think we have to string it all together and make sense of it. Tell a story that somehow makes us looks smart, perfect, wise, cool..whatever.
But you don’t have to. You can just be you, now as you are. Your energy is current. Your story and how you tell it can be too.
There is relief in coming into harmony with who you truly are. With dropping everything else. This is authenticity, genuineness, a state of being that welcomes others without expectation or need, because you can. It’s easy from here because you’re experiencing your wholeness. Pure and simple.
When you’re in a space of joy and excitement it’s easy to feel the love. When you are in a space of compassion it’s easy to feel the love. When someone is in a space of sadness, despair, depression, or anger, love is as far away as you can imagine. Now that is not true consciously, but the perspective is that love is nowhere within and around you.
Love is the foundation for everything. Love brings balance; love brings acceptance and through love you are bringing in the spirituality that will anchor the planet.

There is purpose for everything in your world, everyone, and everything in your lives. There is value in the situations you consider good, and in the situations you consider bad. Love is attempting to surface in the kind people and in those who aren’t so kind. Everything and everyone you come across serves a purpose in your life. Every encounter offers you a chance to grow.
Before we were born, our soul came in with what we call Travel Plans.
You had lessons you wanted to learn, contributions you wanted to make. Above all you wanted to reconnect with love, compassion, joy, and various qualities of the Divine. Some wanted to learn to embrace and share those qualities. Some of you wanted to learn to receive them. Some of you simply wanted to embrace love in any form.
No matter what you planned, you have free will. You can choose to enjoy your life and look for the love, or you can choose to be victimized by it. However, when you know that everyone and everything is here to help you reconnect to love – either by inspiration or challenge. You can, instead, ask yourself, What can I learn from this?
How can I grow?
What do I need to do in this moment to treat myself with love and kindness?
How can I also be honest with myself and kindly honest with all involved?
In any circumstance realize you are here to learn, to grow, to love self, to feel your connection with God. As you embrace this more fully and consciously you can grow, even through the tough times with greater ease, joy, grace, and loving guidance.
love, k 🙂
Here are 3 Top reasons why we are looking forward to attending the Sat Nam Fest:
1) MUSIC: World renowned musicians such as Snatam Kaur, Mirabai Ceiba, Simrit, Ajeet Kaur, Aykanna, and Jai-Jagadeesh all encompass the healing power of the sound current Naam. They perform passionate concerts that uplift and inspire.
2) LIKE-MINDED SOULS: The Kundalini community is one of the strongest yoga communities in the world; practitioners deeply connect with each other through yoga practices, sadhana, and seva (selfless service). During the festival chanting the mantras and practicing the kriyas together, personal individual efforts are amplified to create a beautiful and powerful healing group energy.
3) YOGA: Sat Nam Fest West expects to see more than 1,000 people this year. With 3 stages, there will be opportunity for everyone to jump into the vortex. You’ll see a lot of people wearing white, but there’s no dress code. Wearing white is a part of the technology of Kundalini yoga. It boosts your aura and helps you feel radiant. Spirit Voyage suggests bringing something to cover your head during meditation, but it’s not required. It’s best to wear what brings you joy and elevates you!
Gurdwara, you will need to cover your head as a part of the tradition. Covering the head helps to raise the Kundalini energy up the spine, makes meditation more effective, keeps you grounded when you’re doing a TON of powerful pranayama and chanting, it makes many of us feel great! Kundalini yoga can be done by beginners and yogis at any level. There are often things that a beginner won’t be able to do…but you just do the best you can. If you can’t get into a pose, don’t worry… just do your best. Kundalini yoga is very non-competitive and is just about your personal, private experience. You definitely will be able to enjoy the yoga in Ramdesh’s relaxation workshop with Ashana. She’ll be doing lots of gentle movement and lie-flat-on-your-back relaxing gentleness. But most of all jump in and have fun no matter which class you opt for!
