A New Year = A Fresh Start with Untapped Potential

2018 marks eleven years since I began teaching yoga, though my passion for the practice began over twenty years ago. With an inner knowing and a yearning for “more”; a deeper connection, and a strong desire to learn more about a subject of which I had only the slightest superficial understanding, I began my journey. At the time, I had NO idea the vastness of types and styles of yoga out there. I only knew that I was in search of something…of what, I had no idea. My life to date had always felt like something was missing.

With my commitment to the practice of Kundalini Yoga & Meditation over the years, I have become a completely different person on so many levels: spiritually, mentally, emotionally, as well as physically. I credit my practice with having been able to cope with unimaginable loss and to celebrate the gift that is the journey of life.

I remain a perpetual student – always looking to learn more, particularly about yoga – and I fully realize that I am regularly exposed to opportunities to learn and to heal the wounds and scars of my past. Personally, I have found Kundalini Yoga & Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan® to be the most powerful tool to date to develop my resiliency. This practice brings me to my Truth.

Sat Nam
Truth is My Identity
Truth is My Essence
How do I live my Truth? I teach. I have the incredible gift of knowing with absolute certainty that I was put on this earth at this time to teach. I am grateful every day for this opportunity. And at the start of each new year I am awed at the potential of how I can make a difference in a positive way through sharing the teachings.

So how is this year a “fresh start”? For me, this is the first year in memory that I haven’t struggled with the “scarcity mindset”. Yogi Bhajan spoke often of promoting habits vs. demoting habits, prosperity and abundance and the essential quality of gratitude. Every.single.day I find reasons to feel blessed in my life; it could be something incredibly small – like my 13 year old dog didn’t wake me in the middle of the night to go outside; or something more profound.
I also have made a habit to commit to a 40-day Prosperity Practice for the past few years starting in January. Why 40-days? The number 40 is considered spiritually significant in many traditions and cultures. In the tradition of Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan tells us that it takes that long to change the tracking of a habitual patterns & behaviours and replace them with a more beneficial practices. Check out this article by Rebecca Grainger on “40 Days to Change Your Life”  where you’ll learn more about specific practices by different traditions & cultures. Personally, I am already reaping the benefits of my prosperity practice, which is thrilling and very humbling.
Join me on Wednesdays at Collective Soul Space to learn more about Prosperity, Abundance, and the Untapped Potential that is this New Year through the powerful practice of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan®.  It’s a fresh start – how will you tap into your potential?
