Why Meditate?

Leave a comment Standard

Tonight I will be teaching the first class of my six week meditation series. The topics for the class tonight will be learning about the aura, chakras, grounding and replenishment. To me, the first class is probably the most important class because you are learning how to get your body safe, become more present and have a way to release unwanted energy. 

The way I see things is that everything in the universe is energy. Energy is always passing through us. On occasion we resist an energy and it gets stuck. How does that affect you over time if you don’t clear it? One thing I can say is that you will have a little less space for you and your energy. The more space you have for yourself can have a big impact on how you feel.  The more of your own energy you have available to you, the more you can do and the more you can create. When your energy is in movement, things will feel like they are working just fine. When your energy is stuck or you are just operating on someone elses energy, then perhaps things might feel a bit off. 

What is the point of meditation? Well, to me, meditation is the act in which there is open dialogue between the three aspects of the soul; the feeling self, reasoning self and higher-self. What would happen if all the aspects of your soul were communicating and on the same page? How would your life start to change? Why are you here on this planet with this body? You have this amazing vehicle to experience life with. What do you truly want to experience in life? What are your dreams?

The art of meditation I series is all about setting up your meditation space. It helps you get safe and connected to your truth. There are tools that can help you get unstuck and also help you turn down the distractions so you can begin to feel, hear, see and know your energy and truth. 

I dare ask you, what if your life was a reflection of your immortal self?

Starting Yoga

Leave a comment Standard

The first time I tried yoga was in college. I think I did it maybe one more time after and that was it. It just wasn’t really my thing. I did, however, get into meditation. I really enjoyed it and it seemed to come natural for me. Eventually I started teaching meditation and one of the places I taught a series at was a yoga studio. The owner was trying to get me to take a class and I just wasn’t having it. I already tried it and it just wasn’t for me.

Aside from the not feeling yoga the first time around, I’ve always had a strong resistance to it. If I was going to do something physical I preferred going for a run or throwing some gloves on and hitting a bag. Now that my wife is teaching yoga, I have seen how it has impacted her, not just physically, but her energy as well. I see a stronger woman, all around. Lately, she has been teaching me yoga and yesterday was the first day I felt strong. It felt good, but that is not how I was feeling the first few times she taught me. My body felt very uncomfortable and oddly enough I was getting really angry. Most of the time it would subside and I would feel more at peace at the end.

Aside from flexibility, strength and balance, I see yoga as a way of moving out pain and foreign energy to bring your own energy in to replace it. Essentially you are going deeper into your body. As I am getting more accustom to yoga I am able to use my clairvoyance with it. It will be interesting to see what chakras are impacted by certain poses that we do.

Starting yoga was not something I expected, but that seems to be a theme in my life as of lately. It’s nice to be able to not only surprise others, but surprise yourself. I just want to continue to become more healthy and to get better at being present.

Biggest Damn Growth Period

Leave a comment Standard

The beauty of living in a RV is that if plans change, which they often do, we can easily accommodate those changes. When we lived in one place, we could only focus on the area that we lived in. With our house on wheels, if we get an opportunity, we just hookup our truck to the fifth wheel and head out.

Well, our plans have changed. Originally, we were going to go to Massachusetts, however, Heather got a job as a yoga teacher in Illinois. Pretty awesome, right? I actually found a spiritual store not far from where she will be teaching where I might have the possibility of doing readings and energy work there. That’s what I did for a while when I lived in Wilmington, NC years ago.

We are still figuring things out as we go. It’s not always easy starting over, especially when you had something that was a success and let it go. I’m happy to be on the road though. I’m ready to teach more, have more adventures and share my experiences with others. 

This is the biggest damn growth period I have been in. And well, it should be. I wouldn’t want to walk through life learning and growing less. If I want to have more, then growth is my best friend. I’m green as they come now. Living in a RV and teaching clairvoyance – it is rocking my world! Where once I was comfortable, I am no longer. I am bathing in the unknown. 

My wife read some quote from online the other day and it said that the best things in life make you fat, drunk and pregnant. I actually had a few beers the other day and I was quickly reminded why I quit drinking. It took a full day for me to clear my head. I didn’t like it. Sex and food – I totally get those, haha! But, on a serious note, I think the best things in life are those that scare the shit out of us. I know what scares the shit out of me, but if I allow myself to push past the fear, I always feel so proud of myself and happy.

What makes you afraid? If you overcome the fear, what is on the other side?

Kundalini

Leave a comment Standard

Kundalini is the life-force of your body. It can be stimulated through yoga, breathing exercises and meditation. Typically, when you activate your kundalini it ascends up your spinal column all the way up to the crown of your head. It’s a really cool feeling to experience. When I learned how to do this, we took it a step further and learned how to run kundalini through the entire energy system (chakras & channels). In addition to that we performed an energy healing with a classmate while our kundalini was running to enhance the healing experience. To sum it up – it was awesome.

I primarily teach kundalini via visual meditation. It is one of my favorite classes to teach. Kundalini is also probably one of my favorite energies to work with. I love the intensity of it. The other energy that is very exciting to work with is soul creative energy. For me it is very intense and powerful. The first time I worked with this level of my creativity I felt the need to go run. I don’t think I got much sleep that night I was so charged up. It was like drinking a case of red bulls.

Everyones experience of kundalini is different. For me I enjoy turning on when I want to have fun and I also turn it on when I feel very stuck. Kundalini helps me break though the energetic walls that are preventing me from taking my next step. I think of my next step right now. It involves teaching, earning more money, travel and more adventures. 

What was your kundalini experience like? If you have never worked with your kundalini, but are interested, check out the links below:

Internal Landscape

Leave a comment Standard

March your energy down the canals
How could you not, stand strong, stand proud?
If I plugged into my voice, would you hear me clear and loud?
Got my wisdom channeling through, you know my energy is ocean water blue
I like to keep it loose, keep it free, feel my energy move, I like to be me
I can create hip hop beats, but rock concerts are what I see
Man I’m telling ya this is gotta be the ultimate dream
What steps do I need to take?
To feel that rush, to feel like a god
Do I have what it takes?
To step towards this future 
To blow the picture of being a loser
I can see the stage with such clarity
Waves of blue ripping through the fifth with such sincerity 
And a heart open wide, I could connect with the crowd
They won’t be saying I’m quiet anymore, I’m too damn loud
The struggle of reelin in the big fish
Gotta be crazy with what is on my wish list
Some days I’m good, some days I’m pissed
But I know I’ll breakthrough, I know I will find that flow
To master the circuit inside, this internal landscape
You’ll finally hear my voice, you won’t believe what I can create

-Andrew

the Book that Changed Everything

Leave a comment Standard

It wasn’t until my second semester at Columbia College Chicago that my roommate opened up to me about spirituality. I learned that he took some classes out in California on meditation. I was really interested in everything that he shared, so he let me borrow a book that would change everything. The book is called, “You Are the Answer,” by Michael Tamura. Michael is a clairvoyant, healer and spiritual teacher. The book has all to do with the title.

This is the type of book you can read, put back on the shelf and a few years later pick back up and learn something new, or at the very least, remind yourself of something important. Reading this book for me was the beginning of me waking up. I actually remember crying while reading this book. I don’t think I have ever cried reading a book before. 

At the end of the book there are basic exercises that you can do. My roommate was already familiar with them and helped guide me through them. Most likely after seeing how much I was into it all, my roommate setup an appointment for us to get aura readings. I never had a reading before, but I had an open mind. The reading I got was accurate, but I was almost more interested in how they did that… That is when I learned that you could take meditation, healing and clairvoyant classes at this school. And that is exactly what I did.

The funny thing is that the director of the psychic school I went to actually knew Michael Tamura. They both learned from the same spiritual teacher. The exercises in the back of “You are the Answer,” were also taught at the school I went to. It’s like that book was a stepping stone, an introduction. Moving to Chicago, meeting my roommate, reading this book and going to a psychic school had a huge impact on me. I learned a lot about who I am and learned how to heal myself. These are tools I will use the rest of my life.

If you are interested in meditation, healing or clairvoyance, I would highly recommend checking this book out. Here is the link: You Are the Answer

Healing your Memories

Leave a comment Standard

We all have a few memories that contain a lot of resistance. Maybe it is something someone said or something they did. It could be as simple as a conversation or something very traumatic. Despite the experience being in the past, you still have a memory with negative energy attached to it. The usual suspects are pain, punishment and invalidation. Now, if you have a memory that you never healed from, for example, you never found forgiveness or neutrality, then a good question to ask is, how is that memory still impacting your life today?

Do you have issues with getting safe and grounded? Do you have difficulty trusting yourself and others? If you have a recurring issue arise throughout your life, it is possible that you may have a particular memory that has not been cleared. Finding your freedom is like peeling back the layers of an onion. There may be numerous memories that you have look through before finding the root cause. This is usually not a fun and easy process. Normally we just want to forget the pain and move on, but sometimes it is necessary going all the way back in time and confronting it. The healing is not so much about forgetting, but is about de-charging the core memory. Letting go all the resistance, pain and invalidation can be a great relief and even life changing. Some tools that help with the healing process are forgiveness, neutrality and amusement. 

All healing is self-healing. When I do energy work with clients all I am doing is working with the energy of forgiveness and giving them permission to release. It is up to the client on how much they are willing to let go. Coming to a point where you can find forgiveness, acceptance and amusement with a dark time in your life can seem impossible and maybe even absurd, but healing is a choice. You can remain in the role of a victim or you can you build up your courage, overcome and take back your personal power. I believe in the human spirit. I believe that we are all stronger than our greatest limitation. It is just a matter of finding that inner strength. Maybe you don’t have anyone in your life that believes in you, but you can believe in yourself.

Find Your Freedom,

Andrew
