Light up the New Year...

This year for new years I will be giving up things of darkness, and will be seeking celebrations of a higher vibration!! Plans for New Years Eve include a simple forest meditation and self attunement at Oshos Forest Retreat in Kathmandu, offering gratitude, setting intentions and dedicating energies.. and the universe will decide the rest..

Key words for the coming year for me seem to include...

  • Compassion to self and others..
  • Service..
  • Great love or peace..
  • Knowing thyself & developing thyself.. 
  • Greater balance & greater spiritual strength...
  • Teaching yoga, healing and sharing..
A visual board is the way to go i think!

This year has been truly madly & deeply magical! I have travelled around the world in a light bubble.... this next year will be more about connection, courage to face the sufferings of life rather than transcend them, cleaning up some mess, moving more into the body, more awareness, more groundedness, more pure, more alive and more true..

Hoping to inspire....
Love to you in setting the mood for the year ahead!

Quotes _ Great Mystics

'Come to this street
with only your sweet fragrance

Dont walk into this river
wearing a robe

Paths go from here to there
But don't arrive from somewhere!
Its time now to live naked'

Yogi Quotes _ Balance

'Only when a student can keep his balance of mind even in a battlefield when there is a shower of bullets all around, as he does in a solitary cave in the Himalayas, can he be really said to be fully established in samadhana, perfect concentration on atma, higher self.'

                                                                 ....Paramahamsa Satyananda, Yoga Magazine

“The disciplined self, moving among sense-objects with senses free from attraction and repulsion mastered by the self, goes to peace.”

“Perform all actions, O Dhananjaya, dwelling in union with the Divine, renouncing attachments, and balanced evenly in success and failure.”

Bjork - All is Full of Love.

Universal Law

' By desire we call into existence - by affirmation we preserve and encourage - by denial, we destroy ' 
 ...Yogi Ramacharaka - 'Raja Yoga, Practice Exercises'
We have the power to create, inherent, within us.  We can become aware of this.  We experience or thoughts manifesting around us.  We are creative beings. We can create heaven, or hell, through will. 
{ Practice Suggestion ... In order to observe the patterns underneath, we need to quieten the mind through yogic exercise, meditation, mantra - through regular practice over a period of time.  If the mind doesn't seem to quieten, it is more reason to practice! Everything affects the breath, and the mind. We focus the attention on breath, body and mind, concentrate and relax. Release tensions. Observe freedom of body. Observe freedom of breath... become free. It can bearound four to six years of regular practice to reach the Buddhist stage of Samatha.}
Affirm the true self.  Take time to listen to the body and mind. We see and feel and listen to what it wants to tell us.  Sometimes thoughts arise, sometimes sensations, sometimes tears, laughter, shame.. etc.   Observe and release, then plant new positive seeds, regularly. {mantra, see below}  Build and maintain.
Practice Suggestion... Each day,it is very beneficial to take 15 minutes morning and night to sit quietly with myself, somewhere we feel comfortable to move within. We observe the heart space, the space central to the chest, the heart chakra,  observe the current and momentary needs, and desires. Learn to quieten the self.  In the morning, we ask the self what we value.  In the evening, we watch the day from beginning to end, see how events made us feel, observe whether the values were met.  Start again.  Manifestation can be seen, shifts occur in visible changes to ones living circumstances, job, friends, interests.. {very good idea to create support network, find holistic therapist/ psychologist who you trust..} sometimes we feel vulnerable as the heart can experience openings, energetically.  This means we have more capacity to give and receive love, we feel life more deeply.
Creating a vision board of images and words that speak to your soul offers an effortless way to align your vibration to what you desire... place the board somewhere you see it regularly, feel uplifted by it, feel as though it is already here...see it manifest.} 
Deny thoughts which don't live up to your core values.  Thoughts create and attract like thoughts & energies. Nobody wants to be soaking up the negative vibes of the universe.  More sensitive people are particularly prone to being energetic sponges. Thoughts influence, we dont want to give our power away.  We develop will through yogic tapas and training. We can change our thoughts and energy with mantra.  Aham prema (pray-ma), i am divine love, is a beautiful one, as is OM, the universal sound of individual and cosmic consciousness united.
{ Practice Suggestion... Observe your thoughts, if you find the thoughts inappropriate, don't finish the thought, eventually the thought will not bother you.
Replace unwanted, out of date negative thoughts with mantra. Choose your own or become initiated into a spiritual stream such as Satyananda yoga, or Buddhism and be given an energised version suited to your soul/ character.
Use a mantra for your passwords, include a sacred number?.. eg, gmail account, ahamprema11,  this registers into the unconscious. }
' Sow a thought and reap an action, sow an action and reap a habit, sow a habit and reap a  character, sow a character and reap a destiny.'

Astrology _ November 2011

This is a chart that I felt, resonated with me, and possibly with you... see if you like...

November 2011 has some epic qualities for the following reasons.
+ Reason #1 - Mars, the planet of "walking the talk" will enter Leo (the sign of being in full power , where he will remain for an unprecedented eight months.
+  Reason #2 - Saturn, the planet of "determination and achievement" will enter Libra (the sign of social contract), where he will be for the next 2 1/2 years.
Both of these are excellent placements for these planets ...

November 1-7 is dominated by Mars' transit into Leo on November 1. Mars brings integrity and power to our actions; in other words, it supports us walking
the talk. For the past six weeks, Mars has been debilitated in Cancer. This holding pattern is akin to replacing a warrior's sword and shield with a spit-up bib
and comfy pajamas. When this happens, we become cranky and irritable. Does this sound familiar?

Throughout this week, expect to feel a resurgence of discipline and veracity and a reawakening of a powerful self that does not need to "prove your point" in order
to feel strong.

Mercury and Venus are in Scorpio, bringing strong levels of intensity and devotion to our interpersonal connections. Allow your fears to be transformed into
creativity, beauty and devotion.
Key Dates:
November 3 could show some emotional intensity with Moon/Mars opposition.
November 7-10 look up in the sky as the moon approaches a big and bright Jupiter.

The joy of living...

' Have you ever looked very closely at a flower? How astonishingly precise it is, with all its petals, yet there is an extraordinarily tenderness, a perfume, a loveliness about it.  Now, when a man tries to be orderly, his life may be very precise, but it has lost that quality of gentleness which comes into being only when, life the flower, there is no effort.  So our difficulty to be precise, clear and expansive withou effort.

You see, the effort to be orderly or tidy has such a narrowing influence, If i deliberately try to be orderly in my room, if i am careful to put everything in its place, if i am always watching myself, where i put my feet, and so on, what happens? I become an intolerable bore to myself and others. It is a tiresome person who is always trying to be something, whose thoughts are carefully arranged who chooses one thought in preference to another.  Such a person may be tidy, clear, he may use words precisely, he may be very attentive and considerate, but he has lost the joy of living.'

... from Think on These Things, by J Krishnamurti
