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:

Why You Should Go To Sat Nam Fest, Pt. 1

Are you one of those naughty yogis who never sets foot into a classroom or practices with another yogi?

Okay, this doesn’t make you naughty. Doing yoga at all, by yourself, from videos or books or memory, actually makes you pretty awesome…but admittedly we could all use some yogi community every now and then, and the more the better really.

That’s why all these yoga festivals are so important. Those who don’t have a home studio get to experience the community aspect of the yoga environment. This video in particular will help you feel those vibes and hopefully buy a ticket, because it’s much more fun in person. For information on buying a ticket to Sat Nam Fest look beneath the video.

Sat Nam Fest, Sept 13-16 Waynesboro, PN, www.satnamfest.com and use the code SFEMERA for a $25 discount, because you are special. 🙂

~~Sat Nam and see you there?

Cold Showers & So Purkh

I’m a day late sharing my sadhana, but this has been my routine.

A cold shower. This sets me in motion. After I take my shower, I feel warm, comfortable, creative and ready to go.

Chanting So Purkh in Gurmukhi and English(as many times as possible). This brings me to tears. This is my biggest commitment. I chant it as many times as I can.

I just recently found this video by Nirinjan Kaur…it quickly resonated with me as exactly what I needed to connect to:

Stretch pose. I actually started intuitively moving my body and realized I was in stretch pose with my hands under my butt. I did breath of fire in this position. I intend to do stretch pose regularly for core strength and 3rd chakra activation.

Spinal Kriya. Since I can easily remember the parts of this kriya without needing to look at a book or computer screen I usually do this kriya in the dark or teach it to my girls.

Adi Shakti meditation. Another that I remember easily and do with my toddler and preschool age daughters. This is fun and easy.

Transformational breathwork/dance. For trauma release, releasing extra emotions, extra grounding, creativity and a sense of being empowered.

Followed by melon. For simplicity and pleasure. For beauty and sweetness.

Marked with breaks of bliss, amazement, smiling contentedly, head nodding and releasing tears.

Sat Nam~~
