“The purpose of life is to watch and experience living. To enjoy living every moment of it. And to live in environments, which are calm, quiet, slow, sophisticated, elegant. Just to be. Whether you are naked or you have a golden robe on you, that doesn’t make any difference. The ideal purpose of your life is that you are grateful – great and full – that you are alive, and you enjoy it.” ― Yogi Bhajan
I have to say I’m very new to Kundalini Yoga. I had my first class in October 2014. I had heard all sorts of things about it and read many online articles going on and on about it.. So I had to find out for myself.
I expected it to be a long process before I started experiencing the so-called Kundalini raising, but hey I’m a fast mover so I’m not surprised how quickly I got right into the Rainbow Snake rising fire!
London is a big place, so you would think it’s easy to find all sorts of things here, but it took me a while until I managed to find a good Kundalini Yoga teacher. It didn’t take me long until I felt so inspired by Maren’s words that I had to ask if she would give us the pleasure of interviewing her.
Maren is one of those people that, as I like to say, carry light wherever they go! Her Aura has this encouraging and friendly glow to it.
Her journey is definitely inspiring. You can watch the whole interview here.
While I was interviewing Maren, (our very first interviewee for the Power Within Us) I could relate to her words and fast track changes she had experienced.
Like Maren, I too stopped drinking after I started to practice Kundalini Yoga frequently, and noticed a shift in my relationships. When you change, people around you may not understand what you are going through; a big part of society doesn’t understand ones need to break free and find their soul mission.
Some will never get what we mean; every experience is unique and very personal. When I heard Maren saying after her first Kundalini Yoga class that she had this amazing feeling and on the way back from it she was cycling home and singing Wahe Guru at the top of her lungs completely hooked, I could only imagine how she felt (I’ve had my own experiences with the practice which I’ll save for another article).
The point is, Kundalini Yoga is a very powerful tool towards enlightenment. It enables you to find yourself and your truth. If you struggle with Self-Love and Self-acceptance, you can also rely on Kundalini to guide you into a strong inner transformation. It will work with the very core of your being.
Maren has her own say about the Kundalini relationship and Self-Love. Here is another video with inspirational words about it.
Kundali and Love are directly related. Bearing in mind that Kundalini connects you to the source and the source energy is pure love, to experience unconditional love you must first love and accept yourself unconditionally. Therefore, Self-Love is the key to this process.
