Every Sunset Brings the Promise of a New Dawn

In times of uncertain reality it is easy to become attached to negative outcomes.

It is a time of reaching deep into the soul and remembering beyond the linear.  If attachment to the timeline is the primary source of energy there may be difficulty in creating reality.

A moment of courage is required when all the energy of the environment is in chaos. Realize that this is but on chapter in the story of you and your energy.  No matter what occurs, the continuance of your soul is true.

Take the lessons of a harsh reality and put them to good use.  Appreciate the small moments of success as they will attract more if encouraged to do so.

Love those whom you cherish with great warmth. Those playing in this drama have participated with you in other moments.

Attempt to clean up the small pockets of chaos as they approach you.  It will help sooth the mass consciousness energy so that the whole environment may heal and evolve.

Maintain the fierceness of knowing who you are and the role you play in this environment.  Know that you are far more than just the face you see in the mirror.

Keep counsel with the truth.  The truth of your incarnation and that of your eternal soul.

Be a participant in this life not an observer. Create, expand, and grow, and make life happen.  Do not let life happen to you.

You are the creator.

You have the possibility of changing it all.

Have courage and just do it.

Flexible Spine Equals Flexible Mind

One of the most basic goals of Kundalini Yoga is to take care of the spine. Spinal flex offers a series of exercises (a kriya) to activate, align and loosen up the spine.

Lower back pain and upper back stress are some of the most common health complaints of adults. The best way to avoid backaches is to take care of your spine on a daily basis. There are no quick fixes for back pain, but spinal flexes is an effective maintenance program.

How to Do It:

Sit in easy pose. Grab the ankles. As you inhale powerfully, flex the spine forward, keeping the shoulders relaxed and the head straight. Do not move the head up and down. Exhale and relax the spine back. Continue rhythmically with deep breaths. As you inhale feel the energy go down the spine. As you exhale feel it come back up to the third eye. Mentally bring SAT down and NAM back up the spine.

Moving into March

February’s energy of Looking Back was a time of powerful clearing, which always creates activation/initiation. Moving into March, we love that moment when we recognise the flow of energy coming into experience.

We love that moment, the flow of your inner reality into personal action. So today, we want to talk about your capacity to allow something that is really spectacular, and that is to allow greatness. Your greatness!! The greatness that is YOU!

The deepest intention of your embodiment is you being fully you, and you are inherently great. Do you know this? When you embrace what you want and go with it, you allow yourself to be fulfilled, and you allow others in life to be blessed by a fuller knowing of All-That-Is, which happens through the specific fulfillment of you.

love, k

Archer Pose — Gift of Fearlessness

When I began practicing Kundalini Yoga, I came from an Ashtanga practice flowing to a set series of asanas in sequence from one to the next. At my first Kundalini class in New York, I was quite amazed when the teacher asked me to raise my arms as if about to shoot an arrow, position myself in Archer Pose and remain still. The pose seemed simple enough but after a minute or two, holding still, keeping my gaze, my knee bent and arms lifted were surprising challenges.

How could such a simple exercise pose require so much?

It’s been a long way since that first experience with Archer Pose, which is now one of my favorites. It brings forth strength and inspires self-assurance; by holding this specific pose you become aware of your own deep reservoir of inner power.

Archer Pose, according to the Kundalini Yoga teachings, promotes courage and confidence. This asana brings the gift of fearlessness you get to accept and receive.

To Practice Archer Pose: 

Stand with the feet approximately 2 – 3 feet apart. Turn the right foot so it is pointed away from the side of the body. Place the left foot at a right angle to the right foot; the toes will be pointing away from the front of the body.

A line extending back from the heel of the right foot should intersect with the arch of the left foot.

Bend the right leg forward so that the right knee is over the right toes. Stretch through the left leg, knee straight, heel pressing into the floor.

Reach forward with the right hand and bring the fingers to the palms, as if grasping a bow. As if pulling back on the bowstring, bring the left hand, fingers also curled to the palms, to the left shoulder. Both thumbs are pointed up.

Tuck the tailbone via a light Root Lock. Pull Neck Lock with the chin in, chest out.

Gaze at the tip of the right thumb and breathe deeply from the navel.

Reverse sides and repeat.

love, krishna 💜
