Bountiful, Blissful, Beautiful Sat Nam Fest

One of the most powerful archetypes that Yogi Bhajan shared in his lectures was the Ashtabhuja.

The Ashtabhuja is the archetype of woman as Goddess. She represents warmth, heat, energy and her body shines with a radiance like the glowing sun. She has ashta – eight, bhuja – arms.

In her seven hands she holds powerful symbols: a bow and arrow representing wisdom and awareness; the lotus which is a symbol of the feminine; a discus which is like a water wheel when it empties and spills forward creation; a scepter which when thrown is like a lightning bolt to dispel negativity or adversity; and a jar of the divine nectar of life. Her eighth hand holds a mala or prayer beads that give eight Siddhis or spiritual powers and nine Nidhis or treasures.

I was always intrigued by this Goddess of the Universe. She spoke to me and I felt her power every time I even spoke her name.

Let her be alive within each woman. That became my prayer. I knew Yogi Bhajan was asking each woman not to worship the Ashtabhuja, but to embody her.

My prayer on this day and forever is that as women we may embody this divine being throughout actions, words, and thoughts. And let these words of Yogi Bhajan resound in our hearts and spirit as he exalts our true power as a woman.

love, k:)

Cleansing Crystals and Gemstones – HOW TO?

There are many methods today for cleaning crystals and gemstones in order to increase the effects of their metaphysical energies.

Gemstones are believed to have an extensive memory, remembering where they’ve been, who they’ve touched, and all forces and energies that have surrounded them. A crystal or gemstone can pass onto others any energy that it has stored within it.  Often, gemstones need to be cleansed of any unwanted energies that they may have collected from you, from others, or from the environment.

Healers, Light workers, take care to clean their healing stones after each use because the stones might take pain (both physical and emotional) into themselves and pass it onto others if they have not been cleansed of those energies between uses. If a stone has absorbed negative energies, it may not work well for whatever purpose.

Methods for cleansing stones:
Fire – carefully pass the stone through the flame of a candle several times until you intuitively feel it has been cleared. The fire will burn away any negative energy. (Always use care when dealing with fire to ensure safety for yourself and environment).
Smudging – carefully pass the stone through the smoke of a white sage smudge stick several times until you intuitively feel it has been cleared. Read more about smudging gemstones here….
Water – rinse the stone in moving water. This can be done in one of three ways:
by holding the stone in a river or brook (placing it into a mesh bag will make it easier to hold onto) for several minutes,
by leaving it out in the rain for several hours,
by holding it under the faucet for several minutes. The water will wash away negative energy and return it to the Earth where it can be neutralized.
DO NOT USE WATER on soft stones such as angelite, some calcites, howlite, aragonite, azurite, dolomite, malachite, selenite, sulphur, etc. as it may dissolve the stone to a greater or lesser degree.

Earth – bury the stone in the ground for one full day, placing a marker over it so as to be able to find it later, or bury the stone in a pot of ground soil. (Do not use potting soil as it has been treated.) The soil will absorb negative energy, disperse it, and transmute it into positive energy. Stones feel very comfortable in the earth as it is where they formed and grew.
Air – smudge the stone on all sides with a sage smudge stick, or with dried sage or cedar, or pass it through the smoke of sandalwood or sage incense. Sage is a very effective cleanser, neutralizing negative energy and transmuting it into positive energy.
Sea salt – the most common method of cleansing stones is with water and sea salt. You can do this by placing the stone in a mesh bag and rinsing it in the ocean for several minutes, or by soaking the stone for several hours in a glass of water with a pinch of sea salt. CAUTIONS: *Salt may damage the finish on some stones. * Water may damage soft or friable stones. *Placing a stone in dry sea salt (without the water) may damage its electromagnetic field.
Light – place a stone in bright sunlight, either outside or on a windowsill, for at least an hour. NOTE: solar energy may be too violent for some stones, having been formed within the Earth devoid of any light. CAUTION: over time, sunlight may fade the color of some stones. An alternate, and gentler, method is to place the stone in moonlight for at least one night under a full moon, longer if the moon is not full.

Good luck! All cleansing methods are compatible with each other; so use whatever combination feels right for you and your stone. Intuitively, using a combination of methods is especially good for cleansing new stones, clearing stones for programming, and cleansing and recharging heavily drained stones. Combinations cleanse the stones more effectively and sometimes more quickly.

AJNA-Third Eye Yoga Kriya

Ajna or third-eye chakra is the sixth chakra in the body. Ajna translates to “command” and is considered the eye of intuition. It is the power that has to do with recognition, imagination, visualization, dreaming, and perception. When a person has developed a strong Ajna, one can see the unseen and come from a deep inner state of knowing. You will sense when the Ajna is unbalanced it can result in rigid/one-way thinking, insensitivity, poor concentration, denial, and inability to see the future.

Many people are trained at an early age to not trust their own intuition. This could have been from parents or peers who made you believe that your senses were not valid, which created doubt. Children that were abused will disconnect from their lower chakras as a survival mechanism which causes them to over develop their higher chakras. An imbalance between the lower and high chakras can cause these children to escape reality through imagination and visualization. The long-term effect of this will cause people to be dreamers rather than doers. One must have balanced lower chakras as an anchor in order to have a properly functioning Ajna.

The Ajna also has to do with our perception. We all have perceptions and this is created from our upbringing, environments, and our beliefs. When perception is mistaken for intuition, we can get into trouble. Perception isn’t always reality. It is our limited reality. To balance the Ajna, we must challenge our perception and always seek reality no matter how uncomfortable it is.

what-to-do-when-you-feel-stuck

Strengthening and balancing the Ajna is a process but can be done and requires daily meditation to function optimally. The results are very subtle and when they are not paid attention to, they can go unnoticed. The important thing when coming back into balance with the Ajna is to learn to trust your intuition and what you see in meditation. You will begin to know the difference between thoughts, perception, and intuition.

Ajna is a true gift and to have a fully functioning one will make you limitless. Check out this Kriya called “To See the Unseen” This specific technique helps with gaining Intuitive Vison. And everyone will have their own experience but this experience turned out to be a  a visual intuitive experience.

To See the Unseen Yoga Kriya

Sit in easy pose with the right arm out in front parallel to the floor with the elbow straight, but not locked.
The palm to the right hand is facing up and slightly cupped as if catching rain.
The left hand is in Surya Mudra (ring finger touching the thumb) with the elbow at the aide and forearm facing out.
Close your eyes and focus on the tip of the chin.                                                                     Strongly press the tip of the tongue to the palate behind the teeth
Mentally chant, “Wahe Guru” in silence.
Breath long and deep.
Practice for 11 minutes.
To End – Make panther claws (bend the fingers into the mounds of the hand). Inhale and turn to the left, then back to the center and exhale. Then inhale and turn to the right, then back to the center and exhale. Sat Nam.

When the Third Eye is activated we can command our own mind and command a Destiny. To see with crystal clarity. It’s been said that one’s Destiny is written on one’s forehead, more accurately, when the Ajna is activated we can live our life with an overview and navigate easily towards where our Destiny lies.

To crystal clarity,

Kelly Krishna Dunn
