Over this last weekend in April, I took part in a 3 day Kundalini, Sattva and meditation experience with It’s Time to Bloom. This journey, tapping into a new experience, was enlightening as it created strength and emotions in me I didn’t know existed. By channeling the planetary elements you harness awareness and focus onto the root of a healing process. When you’re in a room full of yogi’s, the energy has run wild, there was an aura of light around everyone.
What is Kundalini? Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan ® is also known as the Yoga of Awareness; its focus is on self-awareness and delivering an experience of your highest consciousness. The technology of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan ® is a science of the mind and body, to elevate the spirit, which has no boundaries, no discrimination. Therefore it is for everyone, universal and nondenominational.
Now, I’m not a connoisseur of yoga, but I appreciate using the weight and strength of your breath and body to practice or to meditate. This wasn’t a $1 Yoga Mat for Sale situation by any means, I felt as though I finally learned what discipline is. Once I learned that I would be sitting cross-legged for some time I had to really push past the pain and listen to what my head and what my heart was telling me. Don’t get me wrong, I think I screamed internally after I lost all feeling in my legs during one of the kundalini sequences on the first day. However, going into the second day, I knew what to expect, and I persevered through the meditation…one of which turned out to be a 31 min sequence (!). I must say, that throughout this weekend, I feel as though I have been transformed. It wasn’t until Day 3, that I truly felt the significance of this workshop and the energy in the room was so powerful you could feel everyone vibrating next to you.
I’ve been able to hone in on my breath and my ability to try something new and educate myself. The number one thing I took away from this experience is to have an open mind, believe in myself and know that there’s something bigger than just being. The power we have within is so strong, I feel humbled and honoured to have been apart of it.
Here is a quick recap and few interviews I’ve compiled over the weekend:
