Heart-Opening Sequence for Self-Love

Find Happiness within. Yoga has taught me that every body is meant to be loved and respected as it is now. You are already worthy of love. You are enough. We’re all enough. Your perspective shifts as you spend more time tapping into love and happiness within yourself. Following sequence in yoga is all about fostering self-love because asana opens the heart, increases blood flow to the brain, and invites you to tap into your core strength, increasing confidence, silencing negative thoughts, and alleviating stress.

Enchantment Mantra

Self-love. It can be a hard thing to pull off,  and also the greatest gift we can give ourselves. By loving ourselves openly, honestly, and completely, we can heal the wounds of the heart and feel truly beautiful. It helps, asking the universe for support. Getting to a quiet space and consciously changing thoughts. I realize more and more that we are the products of our own thought patterns. When you change the conversation everything within you shifts and in this intimate space you can truly embody the goddess within and create a loving life!

Kundalini Yoga and Meditation gives us technologies to feel beautiful from the inside out. The mantras and meditations tap us into a place of unconditional love and connection with the divine.

A beautiful simple mantra that is in the language of English is:

I am Bountiful, I am Blissful, I am Beautiful

beautiful-blissful-1

Give it a try and see how you feel. Three minutes a day for 40 days you will see a huge shift in your vibration and in life.

Healthy Eating Affirmations

Healthy eating affirmations significantly assist in the recovery process and support the idea that affirmations actually reprogram your thought patterns, changing the way you think and feel. With perseverance your subconscious is able to re-examine those previously destructive core beliefs, and replace them with a set of new, positive and logical beliefs. This is the key ingredient for  healthy living which is essential for our well-being.

“Food is not the enemy. It is nurturing and healing”

healthy-eating

In my own recovery from bulimia, when I first heard about affirmations as a powerful tool to aid in developing a positive mindset. I practiced them religiously on my most difficult days, and I continue to practice them to the day. If you are not familiar with affirmations, they are short statements that you can repeat to yourself, with the aim of changing your unconscious beliefs. This is an act of loving the self. Self-Care requires conscious effort daily while reinventing your relationship to yourself and food.

“I eat for energy and nourishment”

Forming a new relationship with food while choosing to recover you will find the strength to keep choosing recovery. And that is the hardest part about recovery continuing to choose it, even when it feels hopeless or uncomfortable.

 

“My body is my home, and I am taking good care of it” 

 

Suggested Affirmations: 

“My worth comes from inside of me, and I am inherently worthy”



“I am enough, just the way that I am”

“My body deserves my love, it is safe to love myself!”

Smiling Buddha Kriya

Historically this is a profound kriya. It is said to have been practiced by both Buddha and Yeshua. It is said that Yeshua (Jesus) also learned this in his travels.You have probably seen this hand mudra or gesture in paintings and statues. It is a gesture and exercise of happiness and it opens the flow of the Heart Center.

 

No worries about learning this kriya to be a Buddha or a Yeshua, just learn it to be yourself. Try the technique and experience the state it brings, then share it by creating beauty and peace.

Posture: Easy Pose

Mudra: Extend the Jupiter (index) and Saturn (middle) fingers up and curl the Sun (ring) and Mercury (little) fingers, pressing them down with the thumb. Bring the hands up so the elbows are pushed back and a 30 degree angle is made between the upper arm and the forearm. The palms face forward and the forearms are parallel to one another. Make sure the elbows are pressed back and the chest is out.

Eyes: Closed; concentrate at the Third Eye very powerfully.

Mantra: Panj Shabad. Saa Taa Naa Maa. Chant mentally at the Third Eye Point. Saa=Infinite, Taa=Life, existence, Naa=Death, Maa=Regeneration, light. These are the bij sounds of Sat Naam, which means, “I am Truth.”

Time: 11minutes.

To End: Inhale deeply, exhale, open and close the fists several times, and relax.

Smiling Buddha Meditation is extremely effective in providing the means to elevate ourselves in a very specific way to maximize our luminescence as humans. It is a meditation for repairing and opening the heart center. When the heart is open you can only feel elevated and blissfully fulfilled.

Ajai Alai Mantra

Ajai Alai mantra is a powerful mantra that can build your Radiant Body, activate your higher chakras, bring you out of depression and anger, and dissolve challenges in front of you. Ajai Alai has been composed by Guru Gobind Singh – a warrior, poet, and philosopher. He sang songs of tremendous gratitude to the Divine and taught about self-worth and grace.

This particular mantra shifts your own vibration by bringing you into alignment with the qualities of the Divine.

Ajai Alai mantra meaning: In the language of Gurmukhi similar to Punjabi language (Northern India)   

Ajai Alai- Invinsible. Indestructible
Abhai Abai – Fearless. Unchanging
Abhoo Ajoo – Unformed. Unborn
Anaas Akaas – Imperishable. Etheric
Aganj Abhanj – Unbreakable. Impenetrable
Alakkh Abhakkh – Unseen. Unaffected
Akaal Dy-aal – Undying. Merciful
Alaykh Abhaykh – Indescribable. Uncostumed
Anaam Akaam – Nameless. Desireless
Agaah Adhaah – Unfathomable. Incorruptible
Anaa-thay Pramaa-thay – Unmastered. Destroyer
Ajonee Amonee – Beyond birth. Beyond silence
Na Raagay Na Rangay – Beyond love. Beyond color
Na Roopay Na Raykhay – Beyond form. Beyond shape
Akarmang Abharmang – Beyond karma. Beyond doubt
Aganjay Alaykhay – Unconquerable. Indescribable

In Kundalini yoga, the mantra/meditation “Ajai Alai” is used to give you great strength to overcome any obstacle. It brings great sensitivity and gives you the power that whatever you say must happen. When you chant this mantra you have the power to surpass anything.

Practice it whenever you feel disconnected from the Source. It is supposed to lift you and re-align you with the Divine Vortex.

Meditation for Creating Self-Love Healing through Ayurveda

 

Ayurveda Self-Care has changed me. Bringing a much greater awareness of how disordered eating has a negative impact on the quality of life. Much has already been said about anorexic ballet dancers, but that doesn’t mean the problem has gone away.  Young girls within today’s culture experience crushing pressure to be thin and attractive.  Eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) can all have life-threatening consequences.

 

ballet

 

 

Dance is a highly competitive, high-pressure and physically demanding profession. I have been dancing since I was three years old, competed throughout childhood, selected for apprenticeships to Russian Ballet Companies and American Ballet Companies such as the New York City Ballet. NYCB presented a full-time contract when I turned 14 which is traditionally a difficult time when young dancers make the jump into a major company and go Pro.

You can imagine what the mantra or programming that was signaled every day to  a professional ballerina. “Do Not Eat” This became engrained in my nervous system and learned to have a sense of control over my body and the competition which is thought powerful for ballerinas. The same discipline that a ballerina uses to master a skill after hours of practice is the same force of will she uses to deny herself food.

Eating disorders range from anorexia nervosa (deliberate self-starvation) and bulimia (recurring binge eating and purging) to disordered eating, and ritualistic compulsive eating problems. Within the demanding whirl of being a teenage professional dancer, developed an unhealthy relationship with food. I had lost any sense of a center for self-esteem and self-worth. I either was relying on my own perfectionist idea, or was basing it on the ballet world’s idea of success, which I wasn’t living up to because being skinny meant being worthy.

Since I wasn’t allowed to eat the development of discovering  Ayurveda  and how to eat healthy and enjoy the process was later on in my life. Ayurveda has brought in a new perspective about my relationship to food. Ayurveda understands all eating disorders are defined by having an unwholesome relationship with food to the point of negatively affecting one’s health. Ayurveda (India’s traditional and ancient system of health) has a unique perspective about eating disorders and may offer some insight to the individuals out there affected by them. Establishing more awareness about my inherent body constitution, satiating the absence of the feeling of love for oneself with food, or reinforcing the feeling of lack of self-love with food, are the underlying emotional reasons why a person develops this specific disorder. Ayurveda suggests that lack of self-love is the root cause for all types of eating disorders. During the course of Ayurveda Self Care Class I realized to add an exercise called Reverse Adi Shakti Kriya also known as Meditation for Creating Self-Love. Here you are mentally and hypnoti­cally blessing yourself. This self-blessing is to affect and correct the magnetic field, you discover how strong you are,  when you discover how strong you are, you can find the strength to overcome your personal demons.

Meditation for Self-Love

 

1.11

Sit in Lotus Pose with a straight spine. The right palm faces down, blessing you. This self-blessing corrects the aura. The left palm faces forward and blesses the planet.

The eyes are closed and focus at the lunar center (middle of the chin.)

Breathe long, slow, and deep with a feeling of self-affection. Try to bring the breath to one breath per minute: Inhale for 20 seconds, hold for 20 seconds, exhale for 20 seconds and repeat 3-11 minutes.

 

The Ayurveda system of medicine, nutrition and self-care creates a perfect alliance with holistic treatment, recovery, and healing from eating disorders and disordered eating. Ayurveda combines the Sanskrit words ‘avur’ which means life and ‘veda’ which means knowledge. As we recover from an eating disorder some of the most powerful results are the deep knowing of the self that allows for a more meaningful life.
