A week ago today, I was in Miami for my second to last Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. There is something so rewarding when you receive confirmation to your prayers answered. What I experience last weekend was so incredibly amazing.
On Saturday last week, our lead trainer Sat Kartar lead us through a Kundalini Yoga meditation called "The Master's Touch"
during our morning Sadhana practice. This meditation was powerful. It hit the cord of my being. That day was day number three of our four day weekend in Miami for Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training. By the end of that night, I was feeling very uncomfortable. My sciatic nerve had flared up like a sudden burst of excruciating pain. My dear classmate Lisanne gave me some homeopathic pills to help me get to sleep at 1:00am, eventually I fell asleep but I was extremely tired from having a restless night. I slept in Sunday as I knew I could not manage to wake up at 3:00am and decided to get to class at 8:00am. I woke up still feeling uncomfortable and thought to myself how was I going to make it through 10 hours of class plus another 2 1/2 hour drive home that evening. I arrived to class fifteen minutes late. If you know me I do not like arriving late to anything. I felt horrible. As I arrive in the door - Sat Kartar welcomed me by saying "Piardev, just in time" and directed me to join my fellow classmates. We did our group teaching assignment. And as he gave us a little break, I approached him and apologized for arriving late and explained that I didn't feel well and my sciatic nerve and lower back felt uncomfortable. The next group class assignment required one person to sit out and I graciously raised my hand. Sat Kartar mentioned I was not feeling well and that maybe one of my fellow classmates could do some energy work on me on the next break. I sat on my meditation pillow trying to get comfortable and truly worried on how I was going to make it to the end of the day. I felt bad. I also wondered why was this happening now. I hadn't had a sciatic nerve flare up since the first weekend of Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training in May. I had even done some acupuncture months prior to assist in the healing. But there I was sitting in pain and feeling distraught a bit.
As my classmates gathered to prepare for their assignment, Sat Kartar called me over to the side and began working on me. I felt electric currents rush from my sciatic nerve to my head. As Sat Kartar spoke to me to breathe. Immediately, I knew I needed to release emotional pain trapped within me. I have been doing healing work since 2012 for my being. Since 2012, an enormous pain cause by parental alienation trapped itself within my being. As an energy worker, I know I have done many sessions to heal and release this pain that doesn't serve me. As I was being worked on, it hit me like a ton of bricks. There was still emotional pain being held from the alienation of my kids. And I released this pain which does not serve me. I felt an enormous relief. I felt cleansed. When Sat Kartar finished he began chanting Guru Guru Ram Das. My favorite Mantra. My inner self further brought to my awareness the healing that had occurred. The healing of this emotional pain. The rest of the day was absolutely amazing. I felt wonderful. My classmate Lisanne, Sat Kartar, and myself went to dinner after class. As this would be our last class with Sat Kartar. During dinner, we share a wonderful meal and conversation. You wouldn't have know that the day before I was miserable in pain because I was energetically alive. I was so grateful for Sat Kartar doing energy work on me. When he told me that Yogi Bhajan told him to help me. My heart received this as such a gift from The Master of Kundalini Yoga. I had truly received "The Master's Touch".
The knowledge, the love, the teachings received from Sat Kartar last weekend will forever hold a sacred place in my heart.
My commitment to share the yoga of awareness is stronger than ever. My commitment to my personal practice is also stronger than ever. I am ONE with God.
As I reflect on this journey, it's been divinely perfect for my BE*ing.
I also wanted to share how we saved the life of an iguana. The poor thing got stuck trying to cross to the other side of the field. During one of our breaks Lisanne spotted it and we all came to the rescue. The guys handled it and us girls provided energy work to assist in freeing this BE*ing.
Last weekend was truly an epic experience. Still feeling the Kundalini Vibes. On Sunday our last day was also accompanied by Jai Jot joining Sat Kartar with the music as we chanted our mantras. Truly blessed to be on this journey.
But there is more.....we had to take our last selfie with Sat Kartar.
