Gathering and Preserving Prana (Life Force)
As we focus the mind on the single intention of gathering energy
and silencing the mind we allow ourselves the ability to transcend unconsciousness. Full of prana to sustain us we are able to go beyond the limitations of the mind and body
. This is where real meditation starts.
We can sit and chant for hours, but unless we have the strength and willpower to practice yoga online
and maintain the conscious state of being we all slip back into the dream state. Keep Up.
Think of this body as a conduit and receptacle for energy, life force
. Most people live in their first three centers. Most people’s energy gets lost, leaks out through survival (living in this material world), through the sexual impulses (the most common one in this country), and through power (manipulating this world). The idea is you practice yoga
seal off those lower centers. You eliminate those leaks of consciousness. You take that same energy and you transmute it. You transmute the base energy into spiritual, compassionate heart energy. It’s the same energy. Everything is the same. It’s the same currency we all use.
You take that base energy and you seal off the leaks, otherwise it just leaks out. It’s the same life pranic force
. One of the ways of doing it is mulbandh, by pulling the root lock, pulling the sphincter muscle tight, diaphragm in, and physically sealing off the energy. Physically is just part of it, but you visually have to go within and feel the lower triangle as being sealed off. The energy is bouncing off the muladhara, starting that pathway the double helix back upwards. In the center of that swirling energy you are sitting and the white light is beckoning you. You start that elevator ride back up through the evolutionary chain, through all the possible dimensions, through all the different portals of consciousness, back to the white light. That’s what we do. We're here to create kundalini awakening
Inhale. Stretch up. Pull the root lock. Put a pressure at the diaphragm. Pull the energy upward. Create this archetype form of consciousness
where the energy is swirling upwards now. Exhale.
All the beauty, all the love, all the possible permutations are within your own self. All the personalities, all the incarnations
are within your DNA cycle. We share that DNA. We share that double helix. That pattern, that template of consciousness, is the same template that you use in this spiritual journey. You place yourself in the center of that, as you have always been. You use that to elevate yourself out of this gravity well that we all live in, where light itself can escape. The idea that we are beings of light trapped in this body, trapped in this form, trapped in this gravity well, this singularity of consciousness. The way out is to become weightless. The way out is to seal off the energy and float upwards in the central channel of consciousness. So you have to become very small, as well as very large.
Strengthening the lower centers. Relax your breath, long and deep. Don’t let your mind wander. Stay present to this yoga training
. Be aware of your breath. This will be your test in life of course, to always bring yourself back to the breath. You’ll learn that in this class if nothing else. In times of most stress, the times of the most problems in your life, the times when time itself becomes the darkest. Watch the full-length yoga class
. That’s the time you come back to your breath and you remember who you really are. You remember that you are the light of this consciousness. This play of light and energy is you. That’s what it is, a play.
