Baisakhi Celebrations 2018

The Sikh community of Southern California came together for one of the largest Baisakhi celebrations at the Los Angeles Convention Center on April 8th 2018 that saw nearly 25,000 people attending the festivities full of devotion and exuberance.

The Sikh Dharma of Southern California along with the Guru Ram Das Ashram and Gurudwaras from Central and Southern California participated in some way through organizing langars, prayers, chants, decorations and the (nagar kirtan) float parade of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

The kirtan started at 7 a.m., which included spiritual and devotional songs and music performances by various groups like children’s, youth and women’s Jathas, as well as Ragi Kiran Jathas. Apart from the spiritual programs, the committee also organized a bazaar which had beautiful paintings, jewelry, books, keertan CDs and indian fashion clothes for sale.

The event included an honorary ceremony during which “Spirit of Baisakhi Awards” were presented to dignitaries for their contribution towards the Sikh community. These awardees were Congresswoman Judy Chu. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and Internationally renowned teacher, author and spiritual leader Bhai Sahiba Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Khalsa, “Bibiji”, the beloved wife of Yogi Bhajan.

HAPPY BAISAKHI

Intuitive Wellness: Energetics

What is the difference between being indulgent and wasting energy plus time? Are we wasting energy when taking a nap because we’re tired instead of cleaning the house, or running an errand for someone? We can indulge in need for a nap because we’re tired and then assess whether we want to do the other things. This month shows that we’ll need to define that difference for ourselves now because this is about creating self value, energetic balance and using our energy resources wisely, ensuring that we are part of the collective group that is on the receiving end of our energetic attention.

With Mercury retrograde until April 16th, being indulgent and resurrecting things from the past will also come into play prominently.

Have you ever rushed out the door with a full list of things to do only to find you left your wallet at home or you see that your car has a flat tire and that changes all of your plans?

Sometimes the Universe reminds us that we need to take it easy, to slow down, take care of ourselves and fill our own energy tank on a daily basis.

Mercury retro is excellent for release, review, regenerate, refresh, re-think, re-consider, renew, resolve, and rest. Many ascension cycles are going to be ending this month in April and in May so that new ones can begin. While we believe that ascension happens in a straight line, a one-shot journey from destination A to B, it does not happen that way (which is why we can feel like we are not making any progress). Instead, we move through ascension in energetic cycles and once we have completion and closure with the one we’re in, the next one begins.

This month continues with resurrection and good questions to ask yourself would be, what can you resurrect in your life now?

Review your dreams and desires. Are any of them still valid for you? Is it time for some energetic house cleaning to remove the density that is clogging the drains of your dreams?

The energy of April has lots of positive energetics to fill your tank and make your dreams a reality.
