I’m at a Sat Nam Fest, which is a kundalini yoga festival. I’m here to learn and grow, to practice yoga and meditation, to be with friends and make new ones. I like to try new things. I’ve been doing kundalini yoga on and off for nearly 25 years. I really love it because it is a spiritual practice that combines exercises and that suits me so perfectly.
I took a class the other day with a very well-known teacher who began by saying that we all have pain in our lives. As a longtime yoga student, I know that pain can be a regular thing as I deepen in my practice.
As an A Course in Miracles student, I know that “pain is a wrong perspective,” as it says in lesson 190 which is “I choose the joy of God instead of pain.”
The teacher said that we all have pain in our lives, but it doesn’t have to be ongoing and constant, but many people believe that it is and will be, and I felt that was what he was saying. And yoga can help us to work at the level of the mind and also to feel better despite the pain.
I’m for a pain-free life, a life of learning through joy.
I experience a minor amount of physical pain, and rarely experience emotional or mental pain anymore – but they used to be pretty steady. This is what compels me to share what I’m discovering and learning about what’s possible for us.
I believe we can all be shining examples of joyful learners!
If you absolutely knew that Spirit could transform your perspective your pain and suffering to Peace and Prosperity, but it would take two to five years, depending upon your willingness, would you delay? What would you start to do differently?
When I had so much pain in my life, one of my constant thoughts was, that I had SO FAR TO GO. I wish I had known then, that I didn’t have ANYWHERE as far to go as I thought I did. I did the biggest part of my transformation in two years. TWO YEARS!! This is why my programs are in depth, and Masterful Living is a full year, with the ability to continue on for many years. So, we don’t give up and keep going!
Had I been able to comprehend how much faster I could reach a place of mostly Peace and happiness, I would have stopped delaying and gotten on with it decades sooner. I just didn’t know.
This is really a big part of why I write this daily shot of Spiritual Espresso each day, and why I record a new prayer each day, because we can get there so much faster than we think. Knowing this helps us get to the place of Peace faster!
ACIM also says that our willingness is all that’s required. What helped me to really increase my willingness was to start saying these affirmations:
I am willing to be all-in for Love.
I am doing it now.
God is working through me now.
Healing is happening now.
I accept and allow my healing with my whole heart.
Thank you Spirit for my healing!
