10 thoughts on “Let Go and Let Goddess/God

  1. Thank you for sharing this post, Ka. I was in my Kundalini training during Samhain and could feel my ancestors with me, particularly my grandfather…who showed up in a dream a couple days before my training. He’s always reminded me of Yogi Bhajan, whose teachings we were learning. ❤

    1. Hi Aleya,

      Thank you for sharing your beautiful words here. It’s profound that you saw your grandfather in dream before your training began! We are so fortunate for those who have helped us to walk our own path, that encouragement – especially during times of great transformation.

      Yoga keeps coming up in my world, too. As I might have mentioned, I do practice yoga. I had been introduced to Hatha Yoga with my mother since I was a child (probably under the age of 7). I returned to it in my early twenties, and have had a deeper practice due to working out pain, but not so formal in terms of flow with a teacher. In other words, I do attend classes from time to time, but mostly do my yoga work on my own.

      As I deepen my meditation practice, I find that everything my life has touched, always comes back to me. What I have already learned is still “in here, somewhere.”

      I was in a discussion yesterday with a current classmate of mine about his Vinyasa teacher training, and about his recent sinus infection holding him back from making it to those classes – versus his other primary program in TCM. I think about how our own bodies aid us along but sometimes “seem” to restrict us. Metaphorically, thinking of the process as a single breath involving both contraction and expansion as necessary aspects of practice. I think about how the different disciplines mix and meld into one another. How Hatha-flow differs from Vinyasa to some, and not to others. To me, this is where it gets to be like the splitting of hairs. Sometimes in hand-techniques class (working with a Chinese massage technique – although we will learn all kinds of techniques – and I have already trained and practiced in deep-muscle among others), we’ll talk about the differences between pressing, rubbing, and grasping, while adding an oscillating technique. It gets funny when they are all combined into one movement. When I learned it originally, we spent little time on defining terms (even in one language!)

      The differentiation has to come first, though, before the combination – in terms of the learning process. But I suppose it truly works both ways. That is seeing the movement all at once, then deconstructing it, and putting it back together again, with unified flow.

      As I was walking a client and colleague through a Qi Gong set that I was currently working with, I thought about how much I enjoy sharing what I learn, as well as, how much I am learning, but have not yet distilled! Hence, possibility no blog posts for a while. So glad to share ours journey, Aleya!!! Happy turn of the seasons to you!
      I’m excited about your KY training, and your process! I’m looking forward to learning more from you!

      I just found this Yogi Bhajan quote because you brought his essence to mind here. Here was my “random” quote:

      “The strength behind communication is in its quality, not in its quantity. Your talk should be that of quality, not of quantity. You should use small sentences which say a lot. Or you should say a lot in small sentences.”

      Hmm…. working on it. :):) Working on the big picture ❤

      With love and gratitude,
      Ka, xoxo
