“Illness takes a tremendous toll on our physical and emotional well-being. Being in pain changes everything. The rest of our life stops. Whole careers can come shruddering to a halt to address a health crisis. Without our health, what do we have? Love. Love remains. what if love turns sour and our hearts break, causing as much pain as any illness in a medical textbook? We still need healing, and then we can’t turn to the latest pill. Healing is not necessarily cure. Healing we all need. Cure is much more complicated. Healing is within our grasp.”
When sickness prevents you from practicing Yoga or from any type of exercise that simply connects you to your body and makes you feel balanced, panic starts to set in, well at least for me… After a couple of weeks of health issues, I am starting to question my relationship and attachment to the physical ritual of Yoga…to that magical feeling that happens when you really devote yourself to your Mat, physically and mentally.
It is in difficult times when you definitely need to let go of attachments and just listen to what it feels right for your body, so that it continues to heal. Another kind of magic that is sometimes more powerful can happen when you slow down and move towards what you are feeling, when you turn to the more meditative aspects of your practice and when you just decide to be patient and let it heal…
In many traditions, healing is said to occur when you raise your vibration into Divine Alignment. According to the Law of Attraction, healing must occur if your vibration matches it. The Siri Gaitri Mantra is a way of raising your vibration to the frequency of Divine Healing. If you are feeling under the blues we encourage you to find a quiet and comfortable place to sit and just sing along…
Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung
Ra means the sun and connecting with that frequency gives you energy.
Ma means the moon and it aligns you with receptivity.
Da is the the energy of the Earth, grounding you in your roots.
Sa is Infinity and as you chant this, your energy rises upwards and outwards drawing in the healing the the Universe.
When you chant Sa a second time, you pull the energy of Infinity into you.
Say is a way of honoring the all-encompassing Thou. It is personal, like a secret name for God.
So is a vibration of merger.
Hung is the Infinite, the vibrating real. It is the essence of creation. (So Hung together means, I am Thou.)
