We are universal beings so whatever happens around us affects us.
How we respond depends on us. We can create drama around the event, which I call Neuro Drama or develop resilience.
Emotional intelligence enables us to process events and behaviours to protect ourselves and develop positive relationships. It involves developing a flexible body and mind. In Yoga, I often see students who are physically inflexible and interpreted as stubborn (inflexible mind). The stubborn mind and inflexible body prevent from moving on in life, thus creating Neuro Drama.
Life is full of adversity and stress has now become part of life. We are continuously bombarded with negative information via multimedia. We have a choice to either succumb to the outside negative noise or take responsibility for how we respond.
We can’t plan our whole life without stress, but we can learn to deal with how we respond and how to diffuse the inner storm...
The universe is made of several layers, with layers beneath us, layers around us and layers above us. Our body corresponds to the universal layers and has its own multiple layers. The physical body is the visible layer, we can see. However, all the other layers are invisible, but when we are in tune with our environment and ourselves, we engage with all the 11 bodies.
You can’t control the events around you, but you can control how you relate to those events. Instead of being reactive, you can use your 11 bodies so that your inner peace remains unspoiled.
Our thoughts can direct energy such as the negative mind which limits programs about life and about self, such as, you’re too fat, nobody appreciates you, etc. It’s time to change what you pay attention to and focus on your greatness, subtlety, grace, and majesty. The psychic heat you generate by focusing on your greatness will just burn up all that old pain!
Mantra Meditation involves reciting or chanting a sound or phrase repeatedly. The chanting or reciting connects massages the brain when the tongue touches the palate and massages the acupressure points. These acupressure points connect the nerves to the brain.
Kirtan Kriya is one of the many meditations in which one chants, presses finger and thumb tips in sequence to make the connection to the brain and the heart.
