A Yogi is one who merges with source. Their journey is one of self-experience; seeded by a realisation that the material world cannot answer the questions of the soul.
Path of the Yogi
The yogi enters into a contract of discovery. Kriya* becomes the teacher. The body is the temple for our transformation; it holds within the keys to unlock the mystery of our incarnation.
A baby traverses the 84 postures of yoga in the womb; an initiation to the codes by which to come home. Yet as we enter the world we forget and as life goes on we degrade the temple of our bodies in ignorance of our true purpose.
Kundalini yoga Kriyas and Meditations function like cocoons for transformation, the sequence of a Kriya chisels the body & spirit, while the breath and mantra open up gateways of communication to source.
A Yogis foundation is Sadhana, to rise at the ambrosial hours is the first commitment. Why? At this time the position of the sun in relation to the Earth creates a stronger connection to the ethers. Our prayers and soul calls are heard more readily by divinity, Guides & Masters of the Golden Chain*, can offer you guidance and support more readily. This investment of Sadhana ‘pays out’ in your everyday life, as the saying goes you give 1/10 of the day to the divine and the divine will take care of the rest.
Being a Yogi is a lifestyle commitment, you could say it is a re-orientation of your priorities. Being a Kundalini yogi is not a renunciates path, it is a house-holders path. It is a path of being in the world with all that has to offer: love, relationships, joy and challenge! The difference being that in your heart you have initiated into a commitment to align yourself to your destiny.
Becoming a Kundalini Yoga Teacher* is first and foremost an exploration of your true self. The commitment creates a powerful portal for transformation. Source has heard the call of your soul and often remarkable things happen as the universe brings to you the things, people and situations perfect for your growth. The cup of your life soon starts to fill and when it starts to overflow you become the teacher. There is no rush, there is no pressure to teach; if you hear the call you will know.
