A Personal Celebration of womanhood

The temple of the personal Red Tent of every woman is the sacred space when her body enters a new cycle. We are meant to go inwards with every moon. To let go and let God. To open ourselves to ourselves, to let the soul rise and the ego mind depart. Mostly when we live in such a masculine energy world. Every moon is a chance to birth, and like the pains of birth, those of the moon cycle are of a womb birthing the self. A celebration, a consecration, a ceremony of life to honour life and womanhood. This is my prayer for all the women in this world. To relax and be a woman.

 “When you were one year old to seven years old, you loved certain realms. Seven years to fourteen years, you didn’t. So your personality changes because the consciousness changes after every 7 years. That’s a set brain wave to which man has no control.
You can think. You can plan. You can strategize. After every 11 years, your intelligence will change. These are the things over which you have no control. After 18 years, your lifestyle will change. It will not be the same because your energy, your maturity, your experience will force you to change.” –Yogi Bhajan, 3/3/91

Ripening

When the self becomes mature enough to the point of ripening, the flower blooms and produces a fruit. This is the beautiful process of life. I have felt it come and go in certain stages of life, every time happening with a more powerful strength and carrying me across the world ocean. Before this ripening happens, I have no idea this is about to come. Usually this ripening is preceded by a dark age – sometimes short, sometimes long and exhausting – where the foundation of the self has to be prepared and the ground needs to be worked upon so that the spring can rise, the flower can bloom. There is no other purpose in life than to reach this maturity, over and over again. This is a state which, like air, can flicker away in an instant, yet its strong presence must be extended by consciousness. This is the jewel of life, this is what all of us seek in our unconscious, subconscious, semiconscious lives. Love is the ultimate state of being in which the self lives out of doubt and in clarity. Perpetual clarity is a state of being, a crystallization which gives us purpose. Frustration can and must trigger this process, the same way as boredom, anger and grief. These are precious gifts given to us so that we can refocus ourselves in our journey. To some they might be obstacles or resistances, but in the true sense of reality they are blessings and stepping stones. They are the wind and the current which will empower our boat to greater distances and wonderful lands that we cannot even dare to imagine. The self has a sense of this yet the mind is too limited to consider this. The mind gets stuck in the problem-solving aspects and forgets the vastness of the self. Only by learning how to use each of these resistances in order to come out of doubt and stabilize the self within those turmoils and dark times we can transcend those limitations and for once and for real live in reality in the true sense of the word. In the vast reality and quiet shores that we have come here into life to achieve. All adversities are to our advantages. We just need to tame the dragon, calm down the flow of emotions and commotions of an unsettled, frustrated heart. Become aware of the freedom in stillness, where freedom means opening that space inside the dungeon of the ribcage.

This is my prayer, that we all learn to live in this bliss. I have been waiting for three years for this moment again. A new stage arises and a new maturity has reached my lands. I welcome this stage with gratitude and an open heart.

“If you set your heart on something, your head will give in. That is why it is the most powerful center and extremely dangerous. On the other hand, this is the only center worth living with. […]

If you ever want to be compassionate, first be compassionate to yourself. You shall not understand another person’s feelings and behaviors accurately, intuitively, if you are not compassionate to yourself.” – Yogi Bhajan. July 17, 1988

Children and parents of the Age of Aquarius (lecture)

(Loeng toimub Eesti keeles, 4. veebruar kl 18:30 Väikses Oas (Vabriku 41, Kalamaja, Tallinn, korraldab Ökobeebi, info siit )

During the transition of the Piscean age to the Aquarian age, and now
entering deeper into this last one in 2011, we have seen changes in
the world in all levels. Children born in these times reflect those
changes through special sensitivity, need to embrace their emotional
self, rejection of hiding their true nature and a deep connection to
their soul. Parenting these children is not an easy task, and parents
are faced with a challenge in their own behaviour, psyche and
awareness. This is the generation we have been waiting for in order to
build a heart-centered world. Ours is the time to help these children
with discovering their own challenges, gifts, shadows and blessings.
We will speak about the sensitivity of children in the Age of Aquarius
and some different namings (Indigo, Crystal, Rainbow, Aquarian children). We
will also use simple breathing techniques and mostly we will work on
finding tools to help you discover YOUR children’s blessings from part
of their date of birth and finding what is the best way YOU can parent
your own children. (Bring pen and paper!)

2014 – A numerological forecast

(for the 40-day meditation go to the end of the page)
(40-päevane meditatsiooni video ja kirjeldus leiad all)

The blessings and challenges that the last years have been bringing to us are reaching a cusp. The year to come, 2+0+1+4=7 brings us to a relation with our self in action. 2013 was a year of pause, with many things waiting for a better time and some other structures colliding because of their instability or suspicious grounds. All those structures which are built on the sand have been shaking, and a global awareness has hit far more consciousnesses than ever before. 2013 was about shedding old skin. 2014 is about making the new skin. This new skin has to be built upon higher values: those of transparency and connection to the Essence in all. Without higher values, old structures will continue to fall and the intention behind new castles built on air will be naked and visible to all. 2014 is a year of visibility, shining light upon the darkest corners which if by the end of 2013 have not been cleared they will be put on the spotlight. 2014 brings us movement and action, yet it is an action which needs to be grounded on high principles of respect, transparency, equality and most importantly forgiveness.

“If your actions are based on kindness and compassion, you should be judged kindly and compassionately. If your actions are based on selfishness, you should be judged accordingly.” –Yogi Bhajan (Lecture on 11 May 1991)

7 has been a number related to kings and those who had the privilege to become the stairways to God. It is an illusion (or a reflection) of God, where 3+4 meet (3 the triangle, the trinity, the God) and 4 (the rectangle, the human world, the home). 7 is a number which is often assigned to the archetype of the architect as the creator of worlds in this world (his role in this play of Maya is to act like God, yet unfortunately the other (karmic) side of the polarity is the self-centric puppet).

7 relates to the Body of Aura, which is that electromagnetic field of light surrounding every body. In this way, perception of intention becomes transparent, the more we can learn to become subtle and quiet the mind. Number 7 and the Aura are outward numbers, in which the sensitivity of the person projects outward, into the environments and surroundings. This reflects the fact that we cannot life only on our inner world but we need to continuously reprogram our habits and the way we communicate with others.

At the same time the Auric Body relates to the Navel Point (3), which needs to become strong in order to radiate and project with a strong Aura. That means lots of Breath of Fire and strenghtening of the navel point. Yet there is a deeper aspect to this number. The last two digits of the year (1+4), remind us that there must always be a connection to the soul, in whatever action we take. Consciousness must remain focused on the intention otherwise the projection of the Navel and the Aura will explode into dispersion. A lot of explosions and uncontrolled (or conscious) bursts we will see this year in all levels – cosmic, mental, emotional, psychological, cellular level. There will be a lot of energy to be used yet we must be very careful to always ground it in consciouness. Asking questions like “what is the intention behind every one of my actions?” or “where am I acting from?” will be critical this year. And because of this, we will all receive attacks (which a strong Aura can filter) in every level, we need to be also very conscious of our reaction. Instead of REacting, we need to Act- to be aware of where we are standing and act without reacting, acting from a point of Dharma and not reacting creating more Karma. This will save our skins, our planet, our energy from entering into a vicious cycle of demotion. And because of all these reactions, the keyword for 2014 is Forgiveness- To truly and completely accept the others’ purity of the soul as one with mine, in spite of their actions. That does not mean not acting, just not reacting. That means to be kind to every single creature which crosses your life, kindness is true forgiveness. The other side of forgiveness is the ego- I,I,I which will not bring you forward but will only dig your hole deeper. Forgiving means expanding your self and your healing energy, it means covering up for the other, it means embracing that which is shouting for your help through anger because he does not know any other way. It means being there for each other. It means staying true to your self and soul and keeping a good relation to your higher values.

A good new year resolution is to reconsider those values, and maybe start your ladder by humility and building up to forgiveness (I suggest you come up with one-word substantives which make up your highest principles in-and beyond-life).

We will start a 40-day meditation on January 3rd 2014 (in Tallinn, Estonia, place and time here) relating to these aspects of humility, acceptance, responsibility, grace, forgiveness and strenghtening of the Auric Body. I invite all to join us, wherever you are, to practice this with us. The meditation can be learnt and practiced along with this (below) beautiful video of Snatam Kaur and Sopurkh Singh. The PDF of the meditation can be found here.

Blessings and prosperity of consciousness in each and every one!
In service of the divine in all,
Sukhdev Kaur

The magical world of the mind

Sat nam Sangat jio,

I am writing you all from a very deep worry and longing I have had for days, months, maybe lifetimes.

So we are all here in this earthly life to learn a lesson, or many, and to find a way to become liberated. Every religion, every philosophy agrees in one way or another, with different words or stories attached to it, it doesn’t matter.

anand73We are given a precious toolkit in order to achieve that. That toolkit comprises many precious and magical items such as the body and the mind. I am not describing everything since it would take ages, but for now I will focus on the mind. The mind is an incredible magical tool- it can create an empire out of sand. It can make you the greatest illusion of all times and you yourself will even buy it. Yogiji, my maestro, said that the force of the mind, is that of an army. I’ll come back to this in a moment.

We are feeding the mind constantly, incessantly from day one of this life with all that stimulation, until the last day of our lives watching tv or questioning who we are. The mind is capable of anything beyond the realm of the body. It travels at the speed of light. It needs no money to build castles in the air. It can turn a beggar into a king overnight. And it does, second after second after second of feeding the ego.

So basically in this time and age of the world we live in an interesting moment. We live swinging between the two natural polarities in our relationship with the mind: we either feed the ego-mind, or we either slash ourselves through the ego-mind. “I am all” and the next moment “I am nothing”. As Nanak said, this the day and night are our nurse in whose lap we constantly swing and play the game of illusion. So we go in a second from one extreme to the other, and it’s all part of this game of the mind. And we have this game so engraved in our cellular memory that we attach to it and we can no longer live without it. We identify ourselves with it- we get hurt, we get revengeful, we get angry, we get pumped up, we feel “happy”, we feel heard, we feel praised, paid back, and so and so and so on. It’s this fantastic play of illusion, wonderfully mastered by the mind, that we are incapable of detaching ourselves from it. And I catch myself in t all the time. There is no judgement involved, it’s just a default we have learnt to live with, worse- to live by.

GuruNanakSo I described this army that is the force of the mind – we mostly have it acting in behalf of our ego, leading to a dead end, feelings of emptiness, or we have it behind us, like the wind behind our back working for making my every step lighter. It is so few people who have worked so hard to achieve that. Most of us are in the way, or not even realized there is a way.

The ego-mind is there to serve us. But most often than that, it tricks us into its own old habits. How to break free from it? Well, needless to say, it is not through the mind-games that we can get out of it. We need something bigger, something greater, something that can slash its monotonous routine (for the working mind is like a machine on automatic) and bring us back into the REAL reality. And what is that? That you are a soul. You are infinitely pure, untouched, innocent, divine, graceful, happy. Your basic being is all you need. You ARE happy. But what we have to do is to use the mind to find that happiness (and innocence, and divinity) out, because it is covered by years and years of fascination with this world and years and years of masks and layers of “I am not worth it”…

What I have found to jump ahead of the mind are three things:

1 – you need a technique. A technique powerful enough that breaks you free from these chains of the mind. Of all things I have tried, Kundalini yoga is for me THE one technique. It works fast, well, safe, uplifting. And of ALL the Kundalini yoga techniques there are, by FAR the most powerful ones are Rebirthing meditations. These are like energy drinks that clear the clutter of the mind, break free of habits, ghosts, childhood clings and past time karmas which hang unto us like dirty clothes, stinking everywhere we go. (I am teaching a  regular workshop in Tallinn with these Rebirthing Meditations and Gong – more info here)

2 – You need endurance. Grit. Consistency. Keep-up-attitude. Your own practice that will carry those super deep cleaning processes on into the everyday life, into the reality that we live at home, at work, in the kitchen, living room, bathroom. Not to be spaced out, but to live your life with the teachings

Microsoft Word - Information Pack

3 – An attitude of gratitude AND a constant, neverending fountain of COMPASSION pouring out of your heart with each and every heartbeat, each and every breath. Compassion to yourself, compassion to others (Yogiji reminds us by the sutra “Recognise that the other is you”). I realised today, that most of us have no idea what it is to LIVE in compassion. We are kind to each other in our actions (certain and selected actions – who selects? the ego of course! “I like you, so I am kind to you”–“You are my enemy, I am mean to you”). But compassion is not an act, it is a state of being. You either are compassionate or not. IT is a 24/7 attitude to life. IT must pour out of your every pore, it is a vibration that is uplifting to all, that is healing to all. (This is also the theme of my Monday classes alternating with Rebirthing meditations.)

So, in this compassionate manner, I owe it to my own little tired body and mind to go right now to bed and give them a rest.

Blessings to each and every one being in this planet and beyond

In service to the divine in all,

Sukhdev Kaur
