Akal, releasing the soul….

When a person dies, in Kundalini Yoga we chant the mantra ‘Akal’.   

The mantra ‘Akal’ is chanted to help release the soul from its attachment to this life.  ‘There is no death, only liberation’.

The death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ….I am no royalist, but I take great pleasure in getting lost in a period drama series or film.

I find freedom getting lost in the history of the monarchy, when it’s written, directed and produced for Television, for me to really understand. I love to watch, Downton Abbey, The Crown, Elizabeth, Bridgerton.

I laugh & I am eager to understand how a women’s destiny is to find a suiter, that will give her finance & security.

The Queen is all I have ever known.  Queen Elizabeth II, her face, her presence her reign.  On money, stamps. Over the years, seeing countries become independent from Britain & thinking how were they ever connected…& hearing the Queen was connected to over 40 other countries….MMMMmmm…Life can be so grand, yet so short.

Its really weird because at the time of the news flash, sharing the Queen was very ill, I felt her soul was already in transition, she had already passed.

Grief has the most profound impact on our physical & emotional well-being.

For me it waxes & wanes through me stirring up memories, feelings & emotions. Causing the most amount of commotion in my mind, body & soul. Leaving me at times in my experience feeling physically exhausted, dis-ease, scatty, loss of memory, drifting in & out of an Ibis. Thinking about living & dieing. I could go on.

For me the past few years, have been a deeply emotional. Its been a feeling of loss & overall sadness. Stirring up feelings, emotions of the loss of a ‘Matriarch’. My grandmother, rumbles memories.

This year seems like the year, for Family & friends close to me to loose their ‘Monarch’, their ‘Matriarch’, this has triggered in me a feeling to grab & experiences life, not loose time make memories with my ‘Monarch’. But it’s also given me space to have empathy for other people’s grief & emotional well-being. Where they are at in the emotion, commotion of loss.

When I give myself the opportunity, my mind wonders into another person’s thoughts & feelings. I walk in their shoes. I sit in great wonder how the Prime minister must feel, her thoughts, in the short moments, days. You curtsied , shook hands & was welcomed into your role, by a Queen & then just like that you rose from your curtsy there now standing before you is a ‘King’.

Chanting the manta “Akaal” was, has and is great support through the grieving process.

Akal

The mantra ‘Akal’ maybe chanted in a practice dedicated to helping the soul rise in a group of family & friends chant for a loved one using the “Akaal” sound repetitively for 11 minutes over 17 days. Creating a powerful Echo sound cloud of word ‘Akal’. The sound translates into “no death, deathless, immortal, timeless.” It reminds the soul of its basic nature. It can also be chanted by one person alone, for 11 minutes over the 17 days.

This year alone, I have chanted, the mantra, more times than I can remember, for the ‘Queen’ Monarch of families & close friends because they have lost the heads of their families, their loved ones their ‘Queens’ to their thrones.

I am feeling, carrying loss, for all Queens, heads of families. A deeper emotion in my commotion for all loved ones around me, dear to my heart. It has taken me time to post this, as I am waxing & waning through my own personal grief & loss. But I embrace the emotion to be authentic & open in sharing.

In all of this past & present “no death, deathless, immortal, timeless….The Queen of England passes. ‘AKAL’ day 11, reminding the soul of its basic nature.

‘AkalThere is no death, only liberation’.

Sat Kriya

Sat Kriya is one of the most powerful and complete kriyas. It is an “entire Yoga session in one posture”. Sat Kriya is fundamental to Kundalini yoga, giving your Chakras a spring clean.  This can be practiced on its own every day for at least 3 minutes. TAKING A long, deep relaxation immediately afterward, suggested, minimum 15 minutes.

Sat Kriya
  1. Sit on the heels in Rock Pose, knees together.
  2. Stretch the arms over the head with elbows straight, until the arms hug the sides of the head.
  3. Mudra, interlace all the fingers except the index fingers. Men cross the right thumb over the left. Women cross the left thumb over the right.
  4. Close the eyes, with a focus on the brow point, visualise or gently roll the eyes up, before closing.
  5. Mantra chant, ‘Sat Nam’ continue for 3 minutes.
  6. End taking a deep breath in squeezing the buttocks, pulling on the anus and sex organs. Repeat twice. Mentally visualise the energy travelling up the spine and out through the top of the head.
  7. Take time to relax for at least 15 minutes, to allow the mind and body to rest and rejuvenate.

Benefits of Sat Kriya strengthens the entire sexual system and stimulates its natural flow of energy. It can also relax phobias, negativity about sexuality. It allows you to control the insistent sexual impulse by re-channelizing sexual energy to creative and healing activities in the body.

My Sunday…

My Sunday was truly a day spent counting my blessings.  I was grateful for life, for loved ones and all things bright and beautiful around me.

I began to surrender on a journey to let go of what I can’t control.  I can’t control ‘Feeling physically tired’…I went back to sleep, because my mind, body and soul needed rest, needed sleep.

I practiced kindness…watered the plants, the herbs in my home, without haste.  I talked to them, spent time running the water to reach a temperature not to startle, the roots.  I was kind to myself, when I felt myself drifting in and out of sleep…I didn’t fight it.  Instead I gathered my pillows cushions and duvet and immersed myself in a sound Bath of gongs, mantra and affirmations of love, light, healing, for love, health, protection and projection.

I listened to my heart…because it is always right.

Finally, the most blissful act of all is…To ‘Breathe’ just to ‘Breathe‘.  I inhaled, slowly, deeply.  Exhaled, slowly, deeply.  Recognising each deep inhalation…was an emotional fight to make haste to exhale out, make haste to move on with life, with time.  I gave myself permission, an invitation to… Slow my breath… releasing guilt for taking the time to just ‘Breathe’…Releasing the tension in the body, roaming thoughts of the mind.  The thoughts that stop, rest, sleep, that create a tired mind, body and soul.

My Sunday “to do” List

Count My Blessings,  Let go of what I can’t control, Practice Kindness, Listen to my Heart, Just Breathe.

New Moon…A New Start

New Moon 2020

I couldn’t quite get a photo of the New Moon Eclipse, but the dusky blue, grey light was a vision to capture. 

The New Moon is here…Its time to move forward…Move forward with a list of treats, blessings, joy and happiness…A time for harmony of the mind!

Soooo I have been creeping into this phase with dashes of “tired, but wired’ sleepless nights, vivid dreams.…I am bursting with New, fighting with old…My monkey mind, iffng and butting.  Making every thought and action, exhausting, guilty or unfulfilled.

Today, I pledge to myself to move forward into my destiny…Set my intentions, embrace the energy of the Moon, Release the fear, roaming thoughts….Ask myself What does the New Moon represent?…..

The New Moon represents the start of a new lunar cycle.  A time to start something new, start a fresh.. begin a new chapter, project…

I invite you to use the Energy of the New Moon, to set intentionsNEW BEGINNINGS, reflect on the old, set intentions for the new.

Refresh the mind, body & soul…with daily Meditation, Affirmations…Create mediation between the Mind & Body

What would you like to create? What are you feeling? Is your ‘Mind’ the mediator, Or is your ‘Body’ the mediator?

Relax into this moment…Bask in the sleepless nights, to free your mind of roaming thoughts. Use the power of your breath….To just breathe…inhale deeply……Pause, take a moment…to grasp the new, positive, gratitude of life. Vision of the blessings.

Inspire your mind, using the breath of life…Giving you new thoughts, intentions...

Exhale deeply using the strength and the power of your lungs…..Let go of Negativity, blocks….to clear the old, what no longer serves you. Giving you Grace, time to be reflective.

There is nothing holding you back, but you, yourself, I, Me, yes you, my darling…Take this moment your moment release, let go....For the new.
