Weight Loss for Wellness through the Practice of Yoga - Week 5 - Work Towards Balance to Bring Wellness
Developing life-long wellness.
I am sure that as we have stayed with the process and held the vision for ourselves that obstacles will have risen.
This is very natural. As we try to make changes in our lives, those part of our lives and ourselves that are not compatible with the changes we are seeking have to be dealt with. Luckily there are tools for working through these obstacles and managing our struggle with change in a positive way.
In this week's class we examine the main tool of yoga for inner transformation. Of course energizing and refocusing our personal vision is an inner process. We use some outer guides, like our affirmations, but it is about what is changing within us that is not "seen" physically.
The process of Kundalini awakening is a cleansing one. The inner energy begins to move through the different layers of being and the different energy fields that make up our multidimensional nature. As it travels through it removes the debris that has been holding us down. It steadily clears away any impediment to us realizing our full potential.
How does it do this? We need to develop an appreciation for the power and intelligence of this inner energy. It is an awesome force that is the key to our absolute freedom. In this class we expand our knowledge about the workings of Kundalini so that we can begin to have a relationship with that inner energy.
In this class we explore conscious activity and exercise. This is a part of weight management initiative. We have to learn about working the body and make a commitment to do so regularly. There is no getting around this fact. Good health and happiness go hand in hand with conscious activity.
Last week we spoke about exploring the multidimensional nature of our being. As we cleanse the various layers within us we experience more - we become more conscious. Really it is a revealing of more consciousness because fundamentally we are consciousness beings.
The experience of the different layers of being or the koshas is an experience of energy and energy fields. We can begin to understand that we are consciousness beings that are having an energy experience. Our lives are an exploration and rediscovery of all that we are - consciousness beings experiencing different energy fields.
In this week's class we explore this perspective of our journey through different energy fields and how we are guided in becoming more conscious. It is an investigation into the nature of our being, the evolutionary energy of humankind - Kundalini, and understanding this journey through the energy fields.
In this class we explore more of the details of our multidimensional nature. We also develop the understanding of the purpose of some of the different practices in yoga. Everything that we hold within our being on the many levels is hiding our true nature, our true self. Much of the practice of yoga is trying to remove those obstacles so that our true nature can shine unhindered and express through our being.
Weight Loss for Wellness through the Practice of Yoga - Week 1 - Creating and Energizing a Personal Vision.
The first step to creating any change, and in this particular case to creating better wellness for ourselves is to have a vision. That means as well that we must be ready to change ourselves. We have to confront the reality that if I am looking for some kind of change in my life then I must be willing to change my habits, perspectives, and way of living. That was the focus of our first session in our Weight Loss for Wellness Program.
The true scope of Yoga is not widely known. Many people only know yoga as a physical activity. But this is only because of modern media and culture.
Yoga is a deep life subject. It is about the evolution of man towards something greater. This evolution is not external in the way we think of the evolution of species. It is the transformation of ordinary consciousness towards higher consciousness.
It is said that there is a path of yoga for every person that is alive. For each person holds an inner potential of something truly great, truly miraculous, and that transcends the physical.
