..."the common eye sees only the outside of things, and judges by that, but the seeing eye pierces through and reads the heart and soul..."
A life - changing experience
We have two eyes that look at the outside world.
But we have a Third Eye, in yoga teachings, it sits in the middle of your brow.
Your "mind's eye" looking inwards at how you feel.
Don't be afraid of how you feel, learn from your
feelings, your emotions.
Sit with them in meditation.
You have the tools.
Practice yoga, meditation, massage, go for a walk, cry your heart out, howl your grief.
You're only human after all.
You will feel negative emotions.
You will feel pain.
You will suffer.
You will die one day & who knows when that will be.
Don't run away from the hard parts of life, learn from them.
Live your life well my friend
"No matter your circumstances, inside of you is "bliss" It feels like everything and nothing. It tingles and hums. It is life itself, it is not caught up in dramas. It flows through you and every living thing, connects you to the whole.
You can't push yourself there, you must relax, surrender, breathe."
I hope you have a deeper understanding now of what you need to change in your life to make it more joyful.
I have been a little afraid of moving onto the last 2 sections.
I know I wrote the course but it isn't mine, it is my modern interpretation of everything I have read, learnt, experienced and added to my life.
I have spent at least 3 months
on the third eye chakra. I have been busy in my mind, organising and planning classes and lost some of my calm and focus, fortunately it always returns with my yoga practice and often I have practiced my own classes because I have found it hard to practice
without guidance. Strange as it seems I love practicng my own classes and am often surprised at how good they make me feel.
I know I am not balanced and whole and probably never will be but I am happy with that.
More often I am but then emotions
and feelings change don't they?
It's taken me a while to get over my trip to England. When I was young, off I went. I had children settled on the coast and my family came out for long visits.
My mum is 82, my Dad died a while ago. I felt the
guilt again...back to the water classes.
This time in England there was a strong connection to the beautiful countryside around my childhood home. I learn't my mother's ancestors were weavers from the moorland villages.
The sunshine helped make
it special too!
I've let the connection go again now. A treasure I can return too.
Last week I bought a beautiful Shri Yantra
It sat in the middle of our Bird Song women's circle when we practiced Marma Therapy with essential oils.
I have always wanted to have one with me....my first ever Ayurvedic book. The yoga of herbs recommended Shri Yantra and had an image. I stored it in my mind but forgot why. Out came my book again.
"Yantras serve to draw in the cosmic life force and
establish a space for healing to occur."
"Shri Yantra is the king of yantra, the great yantra of the goddess that represents and contains within itself the entire universe."
"The yantra can be used generally for all forms of healing and preparation
I read this and realised it was my next gift and that I have made huge changes this year.
I have given up trying to fix others.
I can't take away my mother's pain, only she can.
I am "fixing" myself.
A big responsibility has lifted from my shoulders.
I will pick and choose classes.
Follow the moon
Write & share.
When the earth is pulled from beneath my feet, which I know it will be as I grow older.
know where to find her strong and stable embrace.
It's your path, your responsibility, your healing journey.
