This week we practice kriyas that bring our focus to the concept of polarity. Polarity describes apparently opposite forces that actually represent complementary, interconnected systems; the physical and the mental, the finite and the infinite, the tangible and intangible.
In yoga philosophy we have the concept of the ten separate and interconnected bodies that make up the human psyche. They are the physical body and the bodies that are composed of light energy. Yogi Bhajan taught us that when you understand and are aware of the 10 bodies and you keep them in balance, then the whole universe will be in balance with you. Each of these bodies when activated provides us with a particular quality or strength. This Tuesday we will work with a kriya that awakens the ten bodies and follows with a powerful laya yoga meditation that suspend us from the ordinary world by fixing our attention and energy on higher consciousness. This enables us to experience the link between finite self and the infinite universe.
On Wednesday we practice a kriya to master our domain. To master your domain you act from the centre of your being, your command centre, mentally you are able to hold and project a thought, an idea into reality. In the physical body you are able to circulate blood from the core to the limbs and glands. This kriya gives you command in both mental and physical realms. With meditation this kriya gives you the spirit of a saint and fearlessness of a warrior.
To experience the subtle expansiveness of meditation we need to first set a firm foundation on earth. This Thursday we will be practicing ‘Foundation for infinity’ which focuses on the pelvic area as a means for setting that foundation. Meditation then launches us into the subtle realms of expansion. Physiologically the pelvis acts as a foundation, a centre of balance for the torso and the lower foundation on earth. Chronic misalignment, tension and inflexibility manifest their effects on physical and emotional wellbeing. This kriya physically realigns the body and releases tension and mentally allows us to relax and rejuvenate the mind through deep and expansive meditation, leaving us feeling refreshed and ready to move forward in life with a sense of clarity and purpose.
Come and join us this week as we balance the polarities and merge from duality into oneness.
