Dear Friends,

You may be looking for Day 5 of our 21 day meditation and I was hoping to continue to post the videos but apparently they were all taken down thus we have no access at this time to share them with you. That is okay when life gives us yogis lemons we squeeze them and make NJ Lemonade!

So switching gears today we will do something for the first quarter that is similar. We will study mantras and their meanings starting with Aad Guray Nameh which we have touched on briefly before.
A lot of our you tubes and guidance is made posible by the lovely people at Spirit Voyage we thank you for sharing with us.

Mantra: Aad Guray Nameh

Complete Mantra:
Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siri Guroo Dayvay Nameh
Language: Gurmukhi
Source: Sukhmani Sahib (prayer of peace)
Author: Guru Arjun Dev Ji, Fifth Guru of the Sikhs
Translation:
I bow to the primal Guru

Dear Students,

We are now on day #4 of our 21 day meditation. I don’t know about you but I am really getting into these mantras.
Today Oprah and Dr.Chopra discuss the universe and that we have the choice in life to accept ourselves and others with kindness and acceptance which will in turn bring us endless abundance. This is the true path to gaining more blessings in life.

It is my personal belief that your creator will bless you in all that that you ask, however, done in his timing and only if it is right for his plan for you.
I also believe the more that you open up to allow that positive energy of the universe to manifest inside of you, that you will see great positive changes all around.

Namaste,
Kat

Conscious Me

Mantra: Aham Brahmasmi

Confidence

Dear Friends,

Hi welcome back for day 3 I’m glad to see you are following along. Today Dr.Chopra and Oprah talk to us about confidence.

Listening to Dr.Chopra I can’t help but remember as a child of the 70’s some of the things I learned. The school teacher told you if you studied really hard and got good grades that you could be anything you wanted to be as an adult even an astronaut, not that I ever wanted that for one second.
Some of us had parents that told you if you went to church on Sunday and CCD class on Wednesday, did not miss any penance or communion (if you were Catholic) that you would be fine in life whatever that meant?. Then if you had a parent that had fought in battle you may have heard that nothing in life comes easy and there is no free meal and that you have to earn your way as it won’t be handed to you. If you were lucky enough to know your grandparents they probably talked about the struggle to get to the new country from their homeland to give your parents a better life. All the stuff that filled our heads we took it all in, dissected it and tried to make sense of what it meant. It all shared one common denominator there was some level of difficulty involved.
It was a belief system if you struggle in “this” then you achieve “that”.

Just as a bird doesn’t struggle to fly we too can sail through without such difficulty. We have to focus on living in this blissful state of mind and apply it to all we do in our daily life. It is a simple mantra, try it along with me.

Namaste,
Kat

Confident Me

Mantra:Sat Chit Ananda
Translation: Existence, consciousness and bliss

Centering Thought: Abundance flows easily and freely to me.

21 Day Meditation

Standard

jyl-logo

Dear Friends,
It is a glorious new year as we embark upon our studies.
We will start with the 21 day meditation that you may have seen featured on Oprah in November with Deepak Chopra from the Chopra Center For Well Being.

Day #1 Who am I?

Mantra: So hum
Translation: I am

Centering Thought:
I am my deepest desire

Many years ago I was challenged with a similar question during a bible study course on finding our purpose in life. I guess for me the question bothered me then and it still bothers me today on my mat listening to Dr. Chopra ask the eternal question.

The difference a decade later being I finally have a better grasp of that short but troubling question of Who am I?
The Upanishads declare that we are our deepest desire and after much meditation on this subject it finally sunk in for me.
It is not about the “question” of Who am I? I am not defined by a few phrases. I am way too diverse so I could not easily find this answer.
Then bam a day later it hit me like a fallen branch, the answer is not defined by my description of myself. Besides, I thought to myself who the hell cares what we think of ourselves or how we “classify” ourselves. Would that not be arrogant to go around defining whom we are?

Who am I is everything I desire augmented by my beliefs and actions. So all that I desire or whom I become is manifested by mainly the will of my creator but that he tells me through my beliefs and my actions that I will determine to set that course on that path towards whom I ultimately become.

Please follow me on this exciting 3 week journey after just one day it has already shown me there is much more to learn about the basic principles.

Namaste,
Kat

New Year, New You!

Standard

Dear Friends,
Okay, so it’s the same old you but it doesn’t have to be. This year I am planning on bringing us challenges spiritually and physically. I want to see you us at our optimum best!

We are going to be spending some time with Deepak Chopra studies.

To begin we will start just briefly today with this:

How to be a positive thinker
Guidance from spiritual teacher quoted by Deepak Chopra

“It is not possible to separate our thoughts.
The mind has a life of its own, and at any given moment, a thought can be positive or negative, or it may have no emotional charge at all. The important thing is to connect our thoughts with results.”

Please stay tuned as we gear up for an exciting time of growth in 2015

Smile in knowing you are exactly where you are meant to be!
Namaste,

Kat
