Yogi Bhajan Quotes on the Aura (Part 2)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on the Aura (Part 2)

Those people who are humble, affectionate, serving, and who breathe the Divine Force into themselves, make their mind to concentrate on one breath, and pray to the Universal Spirit by tuning in—not only does their own magnetic field/electric power get charged because of the life force, their circumvent force becomes so strong that it can keep away all the negative forces, and they can change the destiny of others. ~1/1/70

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on the Aura (Part 1)

The projected personality around you is called the divine sheath or aura. It is a protective shield around you called the circumvent force and it is the eighth center [chakra] of the being. ~Yogi Bhajan – September 27, 1971

If you are poor, inhale, hold the breath, and tell the breath to bring you prosperity. If you are unhappy, inhale, hold the breath, and tell it to bring you happiness.

Breath of Ten Meditation to Become Dis-Ease Free

Breath of Ten Meditation to Become Dis-Ease Free

“I don’t believe that pain is the way of life. I think happiness is the way of life and it’s our birthright….[This meditation] looks very simple but it will change your biorhythm and your magnetic field, thus it will trigger the command center and ask your immune system to wake up….This is called Breath of Ten. It’s a complete breath. Breath of Ten is in the line of breath of fire, and it gives you a disease-free body and an absolutely meditative mind, fantastic life and intuition…It requires practice…Your value is in your breath of life.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Motherhood (Part 1)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Motherhood (Part 1)

By construction, the fulfillment of a woman is motherhood—and motherhood does not mean that she gets pregnant and delivers a baby. If you understand her total behavior, you will understand her motherhood. Her motherhood is service, her motherhood is sacrifice, her motherhood is relationship. When she knows motherhood, she is fulfilled.

Purifying the Lungs

Purifying the Lungs

This exercise creates the opportunity for good health. It helps the gallbladder, spleen, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. It is very good for the entire glandular system.

It cleans your respiratory system. It is a heavy exercise equivalent to playing a game of basketball. Try to open up the lung capacity. The lungs are the biggest organs in the body, but we don’t fully use them. Many problems come from not using the lungs to capacity. The lungs keep the blood clean, and when the blood is clean the brain acts faster.

Our body is based on prana, and prana enters our body through the breath of life. Some people think air is the prana, but air is only the medium for prana, and because of this graceful medium, we live.

Women

Yogiji respected women.  He saw a woman as the mother of creation, and as life’s first teacher.  He created “K.W.T.C” (Khalsa Women’s Training Camp), an experiential platform to know their potential, discover their true identities, establish a sisterhood, and build a support system.  Women came together and created a village of angels.  They set up their tents like little homes under the beautiful blue skies of New Mexico.

Your Words Win the World

Your Words Win the World

“You have to develop an intuitive sense of communication so you may not incur karma. . . . Whatever you say, whatever it is, you have the right to speak. But whatever you may say which incurs karma, you shall pay for it. It will catch up with you, maybe now, maybe later. What do you think you are? Intelligent? Yes. You think you are very wise? Yes. You think you are very experienced? Yes. You think you have knowledge? Yes. You have everything? You have nothing! All you have is your word. Everything else is background. Everything else is the background and environments that influence you to speak. Whatever you speak, that’s it!…”

Mantra – Light the Flame of Prayer

Mantra – Light the Flame of Prayer

This mantra has pulled me out of the soup on more than one occasion, including a time when I narrowly escaped a violent mugging. This mantra, as I experience it, has the potential to shift time and space. We never start a journey on a transport vehicle (trains, planes and automobiles!) without first chanting and surrounding ourselves with a dome of protection. You really have to project your aura when you’re on an airplane.

The Mangala Charan mantra is highly regarded by lovers of Kundalini Yoga as one of the gems of protection and courageous personal projection.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Healing (Part 3)

When you are blessing the sick, you beg of the Almighty, but actually you are not begging for anything, because from inside your being, energy is pouring into the other person. It is from a state of compassion, of compassionate meditation, that the healing activity of God, within the being, flows.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Healing (Part 2)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Healing (Part 2)

There is only one problem: You do not trust your powers. There is no difference between you and God. Count your blessings. Be proud of yourself. Make your children, friends and neighbors proud of you. Let your touch be the Master’s Touch. Serve the Age of Aquarius. Keep up and God will keep you up. Trust it. Stop looking down at yourself. Feel God within. There is no God outside of you.
