It’s Been A LONG TIME Coming

Hey there,

I’m writing to let you know this site is being merged with a new site now.  Actually with 2, maybe 3 of my sites.  I’ll be writing more about fruit-focused Kundalini Yoga, Karma Yoga, Tantra Yoga as a lifestyle, for parents/care-takers, healers and leaders, looking for flow, intentional communication and sacred relationships with self, the yogic energy bodies and loved ones, dependents, partners, collaborators and clients.

Be patient, because it will take a little while to get it all set up, a couple weeks to a couple months to get from, “basically usable”, to “totally bangin'”, but the old posts from this site will be up in a few days max (hopefully right away) and new blogs will be posted weekly.

Thanks for your patience!

Sat nam,

Siri Mera Kaur

More About Mantras and Sound Healing

Currently I am chanting So Purkh for 40 days.  I’ve done this a few times over the past 3 years.  I was first introduced to So Purkh about 8 years ago, but I thought it was too difficult to learn.  I tried it a little, but I was also 8 months pregnant, super busy and super impatient at the time.

When I finally attempted it around the end of 2011 it was because of Marcia Canestrano, whose website had an English and Gurmukhi video of Nirinjan Kaur’s recording of the prayer.  Nirinjan’s voice, the calming music and the fact that the video was subtitled helped me a lot.  Marcia Canestrano’s site also introduced me to an idea I’d never heard of before…a chanting circle.  In Pasadena she holds 40 chanting circles and has been doing so for years.

Coincidentally she is a part of another group I’m in (Kristin Sweeting Morelli’s Pleasure Tribe) and when I saw her post there, I let her know just how amazing the prayer has been for me, and that it was because of her that I finally committed to the practice.  She invited me to join her online So Purkh group and since then I’ve been chanting So Purkh like I never have before.

Years ago So Purkh helped me to see my life completely differently in an extremely short period of time.  It helped me to see my long-term committed relationship for what it was.  It helped me to understand what I needed and deserved from a man, although I didn’t totally accept what it showed me, I knew at least that I didn’t have that and that I needed to leave.  It gave me strength as a woman and faith in myself that I’d never had before.  It also helped me to heal my relationship with my father and with parts of my past.

Now I am chanting So Purkh again and I find myself chanting it all day some days.  I find myself in awe of it’s power and my own creative power more often than not.  I find myself feeling warm and fuzzy, in the coldest part of the year that I usually want to hide away from.  And I feel myself becoming much more powerful in my understanding of masculinity and femininity and for the first time in my life, secure and certain in my romantic life.

I highly recommend So Purkh (The Power of Prayer) by Nirinjan Kaur and Marcia Canestrano.  I also highly recommend Simrit Kaur’s Supreme Sound Course.  Today is the last day to join so check it out here.

The Transformation of Sound

Hi,

It’s been really busy lately.  One of the things I find really helps me to stay balanced or achieve renewed balance is positive sound vibrations in my life.  The sound of laughter and kindness, nature sounds, healing music and mantra.   This video really struck me because I remember the first few times I did Kundalini Yoga and how the chanting made such a big impact on me.  The first time I did it I was very quiet and self-conscious, but when I opened my mind and let go of my fear the next few times…I was transformed.  Actually the first time I had an open mind about it was extremely healing and surprising.  I never expected the power of mantra to work so fast and so profoundly.  It continues to do so on deeper and deeper levels.

Another thing that really helps me is good food.  For me that’s low-fat vegan food and I find it is very healing and comforting to eat really well, especially high-carb meals.  Comfort foods can be transformed into healthier versions pretty easier, without losing any deliciousness. It goes with a yoga lifestyle perfectly well.  So, if you don’t know we’re doing weekly health challenges at Fruitalini Fit and you can still join.  Click on the link under the video to sign up for the emails.  Here’s a cool high-carb vegan meal tutorial to check out:
