What Is Healing?
Healing, from the perspective of Kundalini Yoga, is different from curing. Curing is removing the illness, problem, or issue. Healing means to make whole. A person who is healed may also have an illness or disease.
When your body is in rhythm with infinite consciousness, there is health or ease. When this rhythm is lost, there is dis-ease. Understanding the art of healing in this way allows you to feel liberated and whole throughout your life, even as you encounter times of both conventional health and illness.
In the unconsciousness of our addictions, we are at a Distance from Ease. There is no ease in the body for we are disconnected from it. There is no ease in the mind because of the constant flow of garbage being sent to it from the subconscious. There is no ease in the spirit as we have lost sight of our Soul and its mission. The great tragedy of addiction is simply that we are divine beings that have utterly lost connection with that truth.
Yogis believe you have a thousand-petalled lotus that's partly etheric and partly philosophical at the top center of your head. For every petal, a complete thought is produced every second. So that's a thousand thoughts per second, which is serious computing power.
Some of these thoughts are conscious; most of them remain subconscious. All of these thoughts get channeled into different parts of the brain through neuro-pathways.
This article will take us through each of the eight chakras, offering a brief explanation with a Kundalini Yoga kriya and meditation to help bring each of these energy centers back into balance.
What are Chakras?
Chakras are energy centers that exist within the human body. These energy centers are mapped to different emotional and psychological issues and can be used to help identify imbalances and to establish internal harmony.
The combined effect of our chakra systems become who we are, how we feel, how we behave, and how we change.
As Kundalini Yoga Teachers we far too often meet students in our classes who have experienced some sort of traumatic event or who are struggling as a result of some past trauma. Most people who experience a traumatic event experience some difficulties following the event but recover. A small percentage will develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.
You may be wondering--can I teach my kids Kundalini yoga? Can I involve them in my practice? Is yoga suitable for small children?
The answer is: absolutely! However, you'll need to adjust the practice so it's appropriate for various children's ages. Check-in with your teacher or studio to see if they offer kids' classes, and follow the basic suggestions below to get your child involved with the life-changing power of Kundalini Yoga.
On behalf of the SSSC and all our affiliated organizations, we share this statement with the Sikh Dharma and Kundalini Yoga community on our continuing work to acknowledge and learn from the various experiences of harm shared by current and former community members, and to heal our global community.
Cold Depression is our single biggest challenge as we enter the Aquarian Age. It affects vitality of spirit and leads us to behave in ways we would not otherwise. As we transition into the Aquarian Age through 2038, it is said that humanity will suffer from a phenomenon called Cold Depression.
