Living the duality of life. This beautiful tree fell and is completely uprooted because of hurricane Irma and still growing this vibrant green leaves. Life and Death are One here 💚Do you see the sweet green lizard here 💚The practice of Yoga gives us an opportunity to rise above pain and pleasure, life and death by focusing our mind on the Now and live in the Now where there is non duality 🕊When the mind is calm and peaceful and no movement, no thinking,no judging then there is Immortality and Freedom of Suffering 🍀🌟🍀Stay calm in all situations and trust that what ever hardship you have to work through all will work out for your higher good. Accept, surrender, trust the hand that is given to you,us by The Divine, God, Universe ,whatever word feels comfortable. We are surely not in control , but we are in control of how to react to situations in our lives. Lets learn to master self control and stay calm while our whole being wants to scream and yell. Big hug. This is my mission 🌸#selfcontrol#nonduality#immortality#freedom#lifeforce#lifemotivation#missionofpeace#surrender#trust#faith#acceptance#perseverance#polarities#life#death#pain#pleasure#sharanamyoga#yoga#nature#lizard
This love feels so goood. Since i was a young child i took care of children and babies. I strolled them around my neighborhood in their baby carriages. When i was around 11 years a sweet family took me on their holidays to take care of their three boys. I have always felt more comfortable in the company of children then of grown ups. Children are just easy to be around with. They dont speak when they dont have nothing to say. They are honest, playful, open. I wanted to become a doctor for children when i grew up and look what i ended up doing many years now. Sharing yoga with children. I also do adult yoga but i have spend many hours of my life doing yoga with children. Thank you for your love and care for me. You are my blessing 😍🕊😍#loveforchildren#childhoodunplugged#raisingyogis#kidsyoga#love#happiness#joy#playful#honest#open#authentic#grateful#blessing#sharanamyoga#yoga#yogaplay#divinesweetness#truelove
Attended this sweet tantra workshop with venerable Amy Miller this friday and saturday. TANTRA TEACHING TONIGHT with Ven. Amy
It literally means "thread" - it's a continuity and tantra has sometimes been defined as the quick path to enlightenment. Fortunately we live in a world system where Shakyamuni Buddha manifested, and he happened to be an enlightened being that taught the entire path including tantra. There is a sutra, sutrayana approach: studying the discourses of the Buddha, putting those into practice -and that takes a long time to get enlightened, like if you are just basing on the Lam Rim. Tantra is the quickest path, where you can get enlightened like Milarepa in one lifetime. You need proper initiation to practice tantra - we will talk about that tomorrow and the next day...and again, you don't want to put the roof on the house without a proper foundation because it will crumble and it will cause you more problems in the future. So you have an initiation that in a sense, gives you permission to visualize that deities world system all through visualization - the initiations are all done through visualization and then you can practice more on that deity to bring you closer to that aspect of enlightenment and it can shortcut your path. Then you can do higher level practices to work with the subtle energy in your body to actualize more highly realized states. -Ven Amy on Tantra
Inner Peace on my way to teach yoga this early morning. Listening to the Inner Peace CD from soundhealer Richard Brookens. Spirit is soaring high and inner peace is up to Us. Its a choice. We dont have control over what happens to us in the outside world but we have a choice to stay in our calm center or to loose control over ourself and loose our peace. When this happens we are allowing people situations to have control over ourself. So when situations arise that make you want to react take a deep breath and count till 10 and pray for the guidance to stay calm and in control of yourself. I chant the Hanuman mantra a lot when i feel i want to loose it. Om Hanumate Namaha. Hanuman is the son of the wind. The breath and it helps us to have strong will power and power not to loose our Inner Peace. Everyday is a new opportunity to practice self control. We get challenged all the time but it gets easier the more we become aware that we have a Choice and so we dont feel such a victim of our outer circumstances and obstacles. Be gentle with yourself. Forgive yourself if you loose it and have compassion. Om Shanthi Om. With much Love ❤️ #innerpeace#peace#inner#shanthi#soundhealing#richardbrookens#yoga#hanuman#om#breath#patience#selfcontrol#choice#center#obstacles#wind#oneness#love#forgiveness#compasion#sharanamyoga#bliss#namaste#sungazing#breathing
Here i am gallopping on this delicious beach into true Freedom and Pleasure 🐎🙏🏼😇What makes something true. When it is Divine in Nature. When we rise above our egoistic desires and wants. When we surrender; sharanam and allow us to be guided by a higher power that just knows what is right for us. We may think we know what we want but not everything you want is good for us. So let go and before any decision ask the knowing divine power within what you should do. Answers will be there. Just ask and return into your Svadhistana; your sweetness; the sweet dwelling space; the Abode of our true Self. The second chakra just two fingers below the belly button. This is sacral chakra. The gift of this chakra is experiencing our lives through feelings and sensations.
The second chakra is the centre of feeling, emotion, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy, and connection.
The energy of this chakra allows you to let go, to move, and to feel change and transformation occurring within your body. It allows you to experience this moment as it is, in its own fullness.
The main challenge for the second chakra is the conditioning of our society. We live in a society where feelings are not valued, where passion, and emotional reactions are being frowned upon. We are being taught not to "loose control". And we get disconnected from our bodies, our feelings.
No wonder we have so many issues with our passion centre, the wellspring of feelings, enjoyment, and sensuality.#freedom#svadhisthana#secondchakra#feelings#emotions#sensuality#creativity#fertility#sexualfreedom#dwellingspace#divinesweetness#emotions#passion#sexuality#connection#relating#intimacy#pleasure#passioncentre#transformation#letgo#loosecontrol#surrender#sharanamyoga#bliss#ananda#flow#water#beach#running
Through the mind releasing force of Sharanam, Surrender , we will dwell again in our Truth, Divinity, Light. Experience the Peace and Joy we all desperately seek. We have forgotten,that our innate nature is Peace and Joy. The mind ego desires, judgements to what is happening, liking, disliking,excessive attachments, separates us from experiencing this.How do we surrender, sharanam that doing to return to our innate nature again." Relax deeply within yourself." Surrender is the ability to relax deeply into yourself. How do we relax.The way i learned to relax, let go is to lay down. I told myself to relax my whole body from toes to head.I allowed myself to release any kind of feeling in the body of control, holding on.When i did that and connected myself out of my head with what i am really feeling in my body i start to dwell , observe, rest in my joyful Being again. Free of tension, so relaxed , no need for control, trusting.Thats our Birthright.That is what we experienced when we were in the womb of our Mother. There in Peace. So much, that it is so Joyful.Sharanam Yoga mission is assist in the process of returning in that place of being. Even while doing the Yoga asanas , we will learn to move into that Stillness. In the release , we really energize. It takes a lot of energy to hold on....So , when you learn to release and let go of this Doing...so much energy will come available to you, us.Remember at times doing less is better. Not something we here are comfortable with. We are more programmed to believe, when we do a lot , it is better. Lets reset our button and balance, purify ourself through a deep relaxation in yourself. Through the rest in yourself you will experience you vitality, joy again.....Release, let go....Breath in the Joy of The Svadisthana Chakra; the 2nd chakra of flow,being.......the womb .....Svadisthana also means Dwelling Place, a sacred home of the Self. Sweetness, one's own abode.This Sweetness in Being is our Birthright.#divinesweetness#secondchakra#orange#dwellingspace#joy#peace#surrender#sharanam#relaxation#resting#letgo#yoga#sharanamyoga#breath#sacredhome#refuge#repose#womb#stillness

Richard and I had a wonderful night together sharing our divine gifts with eachother. I offered a wonderful vedic thai yoga bodywork session and received his sound healing ;chakracleansing. What a blessing. I loved the feeling of the weights of the tibetan bowls on my chakras and i felt the vibration inside me when Richard played the bowls. More to come and share, evolve and purify together.
