Meditation: Challenging The Illusion of Your Limiting Beliefs, by Parvati Devi

It is the New Year. The year ahead feels like a clean, clear slate, full of possibilities. You may have a list of things you would like to see happen in the coming months. You may feel open, ready and willing to grow. Yet, high hopes can soon feel dashed when you meet naysayers in the world around you or internal limiting beliefs that say you can’t be truly happy. Of these two, your internal chatter is most like Superman’s Kryptonite. People’s negative comments only have power if you believe them to be true. You believe in them only because at some level, you likely hold a core belief that validates their words. For the purpose of cultivating wisdom in the practice of meditation, you must go deeper into exploring the truth of these core beliefs that can undermine your best intentions with mesmerizing speed and efficiency. When you see painful thoughts thwart your heart’s joy, draw upon an age-old key truth on the path to freedom. Know that when you believe life is happening “to” you, you are in your ego. As though under a spell, you are temporarily attached to a passing perception, generated by your ego, which only knows to divide. In that moment, you are seeing life through a limited, distorted lens.…

YEM: Crab, by Parvati Devi

Image credit: Unterstrich Breath awareness offers each of us unique and profound insight into who we are and how we are feeling. It connects our inner, personal world of sensations, thoughts and experience, with the outer world that unfolds around us. One of the more introverted yoga poses, the forward bending Crab pose, is a welcome relief at the end of a busy day of “doing”. It moves your awareness away from the external and helps you cultivate greater internal wisdom. It is also a wonderful pose to start your day, as it cultivates humility, receptivity and the awareness that our relationship with our internal world is reflected back to us through our relationship with our external world. The wise yogi knows that each thought, feeling and idea literally affects the way we experience the moment, and this sets the arch and trajectory of our life. Please remember that the goal of this exercise is not to “work hard” but to get in touch with your true source of power. Connect to your breath, your body and your spine and witness whatever may arise. Release all tendency to have an agenda. Practice presence. In this allowing, you create a forum within yourself for tremendous healing. All YEM: Yoga as Energy Medicine exercises in this magazine are…

Positive Possibilities: Guidance on the Razor’s Edge, by Parvati Devi

The Upanishads refer to the spiritual path as the kshurasya dhara, the razor’s edge. It is a potent path, yet one that can be easy to stray from without realizing it, and hard to stay on. The wisdom of a realized master is invaluable for those who seek to undertake this journey. I feel very blessed by the Grace of a satguru in my life. They say the teacher comes when the student is ready. I stumbled upon and met Mata Amritanandamayi Devi in Kerala, South India in 1993 when I was internally called to go to India to deepen my yoga practice. Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, lovingly known as Amma, or Mother, is the embodiment of unconditional love, the primordial shakti, or divine life force. Her teachings are clear and simple, practically relevant to our busy, modern lives. Her focus on selfless service as a means of God-realization provides straightforward guidelines on spiritual living. She says, “Fill your hearts with love and express it in all you do.” I would like to dedicate this month’s column to some of Amma’s guidelines for spiritual growth and expansion. They have become points of regular contemplation for me. As with most spiritual truths, there is a profundity in the simplicity found within them. In each of these points, we…

Remembering Who You Are

From my experience, the ego only exists because it sees itself as separate from life force. So when that illusion dissolves, we return to the experience of unity. In that process, we gain even greater access to interconnection, which ensures not only our survival, but our thriving.

November 2015: Luminosity (Read the Full Issue)

Welcome to the November 2015 issue of Parvati Magazine. Daylight Savings Time has ended and the nights are lengthening on their way to the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. Yet, even as darkness seems to increase, luminosity is not only possible – it is our destiny. As we come to fully experience that our essence and everything within and around us is one with unlimited consciousness, we realize our true, divine nature. One who truly understands and lives within this reality loves all things equally and sees all things equally, because to him, all is undivided consciousness, not separate from himself, or anything that is. This month’s issue contains articles to celebrate your luminous self and your interconnection with all on our beautiful planet. Enjoy! Click the cover image below to open the magazine viewer.

Positive Possibilities: Enlightenment – Illuminated Understanding, by Parvati Devi

Image credit: Christos Tsoumpeklas “When you have reached enlightenment, ignorance will delude you no longer. In the light of that knowledge you will see the entire creation within your own Atman and in me.” – Bhagavad Gita 4:35 Enlightenment is a part of everyone’s destiny. We each are called to this state at some point through our many incarnations. The process of our soul’s evolution involves a purification of our distorted perceptions that sees ourselves as separate, suffering entities. As we come to fully experience that our essence and everything within and around us is one with unlimited consciousness, we realize our true, divine nature. One who truly understands and lives within this reality loves all things equally and sees all things equally, because to him, all is undivided consciousness, not separate from himself, or anything that is. Often through a break of our ego’s grip due to the weight of our own suffering, we awaken to a life beyond the pain of limited sense of a divided “me”. We realize that there is more to life than wanting for oneself. We experience deeper truths that lie beyond our limited personal perceptions and question the nature of the mind and the authority of our ego. As we place less power in our ego, we go through…

YEM: The Delightful Butterfly, by Parvati Devi

Image credit: Unterstrich Each luminous, colourful butterfly was once a caterpillar. Not born with wings that could take it to great heights, the former ground-crawler had to be reborn to see the world in a whole new way and experience newfound freedom. In many ways, the spiritual path is like this. As one of my favorite children’s books, “Hope For The Flowers” by Trina Paulus, reminds us, we can too easily find ourselves stuck in the hum-drum of living, crawling along the ground and forgetting that a butterfly waits to be born within us. In India, cobblers traditionally sat to repair shoes in Butterfly pose, also known as Bound Angle Pose or Baddhakonasana in Sanskrit (baddha/bound kona/angle). Likely due to its ability to open the flow of life-force energy through the kidneys, sexual and digestive organs, groin and prostate, it was noted that often these workers did not suffer from such diseases. Safe for most anyone who does not suffer from severe knee, groin or hip injuries, this simple yoga pose will provide you with an opportunity to gently go within while deepening a rooted sense of connection to the Earth. As your spine spills over your hips and you release your forehead towards the ground, your overheated thinking mind eases into surrender to the cooling…

Meditation: Seeing the Divine in Everything, by Parvati Devi

Image credit: Neil Piddock The divine means many things to different people. For some, it is formless, expansive light. Others see the sacred in nature, such as in a tree, a mountain, an animal or a river. Many traditions relate to God as a male figurehead, while others worship the divine mother. However we see the divine, what is essential is that we touch the reality of unity behind the appearance of diversity. The divine is ultimately pure, unconditional love, and as such, it will express itself to us in the best way for us to evolve. A window frame may be Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, or any other world tradition. Some only look at the window dressing and see only their religion. For those who look deeper, the structure of each tradition can help spiritual aspirants find one universal divine truth. They know that what is essential is what shines through the window frame: the clear, unattached, compassionate natural-love-light of the divine that is within all. Let us not get stuck on the window dressing. Let us look through the window and welcome the love-light that we all are. When we focus on the unity that joins us, we create a beautiful human rainbow of light, varied in colour, all part of the one…

WHY YOGA IN THE NIGHTCLUB

I am often asked what inspired me to bring yogic expression into the club scene. I answer easily. Yoga In the Nightclub is a natural expression of who I am as a musical artist and dedicated yogini. Yoga is not a physical practice but a way of life. It is about learning to be present in all one does, to see the divine here, now, in this moment. As such, yoga is everywhere. It is about feeling connected to something much greater than our limited ego or will. It is about being in service to life, feeling interconnected to that very life force. Yoga In The Nightclub is a celebration of life and a reminder that we can find awakened presence everywhere.

Yoga in the West is mostly known as a series of bendy physical exercises. Yet there is much more to it than fitness. Yoga’s systematic breath and body exercises, designed to clear the subtle channels in our energy system, prepare us for meditation, through which we may experience a life inspired by our interconnected, multidimensional true nature. Our body, that once was seen as “mine”, is no longer our identity, but a gift on loan from the divine. We care for it, but we are not attached to it. The practice of yoga offers us the opportunity to experience the transmutation of matter into pure light, embody the multidimensional and rest in the eternal.

WE ARE ALL CONNECTED

Hatha yoga, the physical practice of yoga, is just one of many aspects of yoga, which range from selfless service to astrology and prayer. The Sanskrit word “yoga” most simply translates to “union”, implying that the practice of any yoga will bring together our perceived sense of separateness. As a whole, yoga is an ancient science of life. It is a practical method of shedding excess and bringing us back from the self-delusion of separation from the divine so that we may realize our inherent interconnection to and ultimate oneness with it.

As we begin to understand that yoga is everywhere, we come to see how we are all connected in vast ways far beyond the limitations of our personal will and ego. What I do affects you, and vice versa. We are one earth family. At the heart of it all, we share the same heartbeat. Breathe to be. We are one.

AWAKENED LIVING

When we are open, life blossoms, just as a flower opens to welcome the morning sun.  We see that the sun, though it is millions of light years away, has a tender yet powerful relationship with the flower, as do the rain and the clouds. From this perspective we see that we are part of the whole. Life is a symphonic masterpiece with which, when we are open, we are completely resonant.

As we come to understand our oneness, we can revel in it with wonder and joy. We can consider in awe how immense it all is. We can let go of the idea that an illusory, isolated sense of self could possibly be in control, and open to an exquisite unfolding of life in absolute perfection. Our actions become not about “me” but about the whole. Each moment is integrated within the whole. No one decision is separate.

When we begin to see that each decision we make affects not just ourselves but everyone and everything on the planet, we act with more compassion. When we have more compassion, we realize the impact of our actions and we naturally want less and practice more kindness. As stewards of the Earth, we each are called to learn to live in harmony with ourselves, each other and our planet. We all breathe the same air and live on the same living organism, our planet. Varied in race and creed, we are all one family, children of the same mother, the planet Earth.

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR GRACE

In each moment, there is infinite grace. By becoming more conscious as we practice yoga on the mat, at work, at play or in the nightclub, we let go of the unnecessary and develop greater internal spaciousness which blooms throughout our lives. In this space new life and possibilities arise.

As we rest our awareness on the simple purity and grace of the breath, we realize - we are alive! We let go of wanting things from the future and the past and open to what is here and now. We feel as vast as the sky and rooted in the richness of this moment.

When we “breathe to be”, we understand our interconnection. We see that we are not the doers but a part of the whole, the same energy that is in the flowers and in the stars. We know that our essence is divine - from which we have come, to which we return.
