Empty handed you come, empty handed you go.
Principle of "Itarashtam tithar kashtam"
On January 30th, I completed my 40 personal Sadhana requirements for Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. There is such a rewarding feeling when you accomplish your goals which were once a dream you had to become a Kundalini Yoga Teacher in order to share this technology in your community. It is also so rewarding when you know what you faced to get to this point in your life. See as part of Kundalini Yoga Teacher certification, I was required to practice a kriya and meditation for 40 days. I had begun this twice prior to this but I had some obstacles which came up. The first was Hurricane Irma. I was practicing my kriya and meditation and Hurricane Irma stormed into Florida and disrupted every thing. The second time I had begun my 40 day Sadhana, I was faced with a challenge at work that took the best of me and won. I was on day 30 and only had 10 more days to go but I got out of work extra late. I had a stress headache that night. So fast forward to Winter Solstice's White Tantric Yoga on Dec 21st. I was determined afterwards to begin and complete my 40 day Sadhana practice. I began my practice and my commitment to accomplish it this time around grew stronger. I traveled to Miami for our second to last Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training weekend on Jan 18th, in which we were in class from 8am until 6pm for four days. I told my classmate, I was faced with a challenge as well. My sciatic nerve flared up. The ego mind wanted me to quit and give up since I was in pain but I push through it and completed my practice. I was blessed with energy work from my teacher on that Sunday. I continued with my practice until I completed. I have done 40 day Sadhana's with Spirit Voyage prior to beginning Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training but there was something so rewarding as I completed this 40 day Sadhana this time around since I knew all the obstacles I was faced with and the challenges that wanted to get the best of me this time around. I have begun another 40 day Sadhana. I feel so blessed to have found the yoga of awareness.
