“Grace is the strength of Character to be you,
and never let yourself down,
or anyone else down.“ – Yogi Bhajan
Guru Ram Das. Guru Guru Waheguru. Sat siri. Sat Nam. We’re about to rock a class on grace, grace as it pertains to our identities. Lift the sternum into the thumbs, elongate the head. Take a few deep breaths.
Let’s synch our breaths together, squeeze out all the air, inhale inhale inhale, hold the breath, exhale. Ong Namo Gurudev Namo. Inhale deeply, connect with the sweet breath, connect with your soul right now, the base frequency beneath all experience. Connect with the soul’s destiny, the bright light, all you we’re meant to be.
Feel yourself being fully capable to be everything you are here to do, everything you are here to be. Breathe long and deep. Bring the legs together and stretch them into infinity. The neck comes into alignment. Keep the pelvis tilted up so the pelvis stays on the floor and keeps your back safe.
Blossom with each breath. What’s perfect about the block? What is the opportunity to learn? How can I grow right now? This is grace. This is what blossoms us into learning what we have been resisting. Keep blossoming. In every moment whether we think there’s something wrong or not, we have the opportunity to remember that we are divine, and that we belong to the divine.
In my myself I am yours. Even when life throws us a curveball, we can say “That’s weird, but divine, I belong to you.” Feel your gorgeous center. Resplendent.
Inhaling forward, exhaling back, inhaling Sat, exhaling Nam. It’s the power of the rhythm with the breath, with the Mantra, that makes Kundalini Yoga so effective. The rhythm, with breath, with mantra. The three together catalyze your energy, catalyze you at a cellular level, in a way that you can experience your greatness in a way that you’ve never seen before. Catalyze your greatness and stick to it.
Your neck is the sacred bridge between your heart and your body. Show your love here, your conscious breath, your conscious motion. When you come into being with the truth of all things, you realize that it is always the choice to be a victim or a winner. It is how we tell the stories of our lives that creates new desires in ourselves to be liberated. Allow the self to be liberated and spoken.
This is called “Developing the power to win”. This is a strong and fluid motion. Feel your body gaining strength. Do it as you listen to the mantra – “I am thine in my myself”. Let your rhythm sync up to the rhythm of the music. Go within, and contemplate the very possibility that you belong to the divine. I am think in mine myself, Waheguru.”
