When I was introduced to Kundalini Yoga, an aspect I felt uncomfortable with was the use of mantra. I was reluctant to join in with the class or use mantras in my personal practice. It wasn’t until I took on the challenge to practice 40 days of chanting the Adi Shakti mantra that I experienced the amazing power of this technology.
Kundalini Yoga recognizes three mental bodies: the positive, negative, and neutral mind. The movement, breath, and meditative techniques work to develop the neutral mind, which happens when we achieve the internal balance and harmony that comes from regular practice.
Every person has inner guidance available to them and a choice to listen and live with its support. The inner voice is the voice from the soul. It is our guide and guardian.
Our purpose on this planet is to evolve and these blocks mean that you are about to go to a whole new level in Earth school.
One of the best ways to learn about the positive, negative and neutral minds is through relationship.
Yogis believe you have a thousand-petalled lotus that’s partly etheric and partly philosophical at the top center of your head. For every petal, a complete thought is produced every second. So that’s a thousand thoughts per second, which is serious computing power.
The power of the mind is incredible, and without meditation it is like giving a child a high powered race car without proper instruction.
Judgment is the mind’s conviction that your life should be different, you should be different, others should be different, which can take the form of complaining, extreme negativity or gossiping. You can express this energy to others and/or keep it as an internal dialogue—both are damaging to the self.
Now is the time to cultivate the discipline, skills, and heart of a Warrior Saint. Why a Warrior Saint? This ancient archetype is one that exemplifies qualities that can help us to emerge from this time triumphant.
Cold Depression is when the external demand is greater than the internal capacity to deliver and we have spent our reserves. We are depressed but we are so numb and insensitive to our own self, we do not feel it. The depression is therefore “cold.” This leads us to inner anger and isolation from our soul.
