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.

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

It’s time to get angry!

Leave a comment Standard

We have all experienced depression at some point, but when you are consistently down in the dumps, that is when there may be an issue. Depression is a low energy and vibration. It is difficult to experience change at that level. Typically, you are stuck in the, “what is the point,” energy. So, it is not exactly fun times when you are depressed – how do you get of out it? Well, there are numerous ways, but one way is through anger. Anger? Fuck yeah!

Perhaps it is time to get pissed. Aren’t you tired of feeling lousy? Aren’t you tired of nothing changing? Get angry! It is your body, your emotions and your life! Now, don’t get anger confused with hate. All I am saying is that you can go to the gym and run on anger. Hell, you could go grocery shopping and walk around vibrating in anger and it is absolutely no problem. Being angry doesn’t mean you are being violent. When you start getting angry, things start to shift. Usually when you are angry, people give you space. Maybe space is what you are needing.

When you are depressed you are shutdown. There isn’t any movement. With anger, you begin to regain movement and space. It can be a relief. Now, I’m not necessarily saying you should find your anger and stay angry, but if you aren’t even able to access your anger – you may want to look into it. If you can get angry, then amusement and joy aren’t too far off in the distance.

If you have difficulty finding your anger, just fake it until you make it. When you are depressed, it will always feel like you can’t get out of it. Bullshit! Go to the gym, get moving, find a punching bag and build your anger. Do I think fighting with anger is smart. No. I’m just saying that going to a gym, moving your body around, getting your energy in movement and sparking up your anger just may be the thing you’re needing. Hell, I can sit in meditation and run the energy of my anger. What!? That doesn’t sound like meditation? Meditation is all about centering yourself and peace, and love and flowers. I like to keep meditation real. Anger is an emotion. It can be useful. Learn to tap into it and run it – just don’t let it run YOU.

Self-Mastery

Leave a comment Standard

We have a tendency to search outside of ourselves for our answers. Maybe it’s the priest, your mother, or a book. Theres nothing wrong with going to someone for help, but there is a difference between someone trying to help you using neutrality versus someone telling you what you should do. We often hear, well if I were you, I would do this… The thing is, they are not you and your life is not theirs. What does is it mean to seek help in someone who is neutral? Well, maybe they offer you tools so you can better find your answers or they may just be there to listen. They may simply ask questions that end up helping you find clarity. So to make it clear, I think there is absolutely no problem asking for help, but there is another way to find your answers.

There is a world that exists within yourself, an internal landscape – your energy system. Your energy system is comprised of chakras and channels. A chakra is an energy center that sends and receives information. There are seven major chakras in your body. Your chakras are very much associated with your skills and abilities. For example, your first chakra (root chakra) is associated with your ability to provide for yourself and others. Aside from chakras, there are channels in your energy system. These channels simply connect all of your chakras in your body, so that energy can flow naturally. Channel are like rivers. When they are clear, energy moves through with ease. When there is a block in your energy system, it is kind of like a dam. Everything gets held up. Movement is restricted and you will start to notice it in your everyday life. 

Your energy system is like a motherboard in a computer. Then there is software which consists of applications and programs. In regards to your energy system, the big question is – are you running on your programs or someone elses programs? Another way to put would be, your truth versus someone elses truth. When you start to wakeup and begin to direct your attention to within yourself, it becomes an energy game. You start to feel, hear, see and know your energy and others energies. When you have a strong sense of your energy, embrace it and make it number one – a shift begins to happen. A chakra emits a layer of your aura. Your aura is that energy field around your physical body. Some call it their personal bubble or space, but essentially it is your reality, what is REAL for you. Now, if you start to make your energy number one in a chakra, the layer of your aura that it emits will be affected. Change happens from within and slowly over time, your transformation will manifest. 

Something interesting happens when you go within and embrace your energy. You start to develop a relationship with your higher-self. Your higher-self is there to guide you. It is the parent aspect of your soul willing to hold your hand as you walk the path of your truth. When your energy system is running on other peoples energy or programs, it is difficult for your higher-self to direct you, but when you are in agreement with your own energy, it is much easier for that wise part of you to lead you. Going within and connecting with my higher-self is my primary way of getting my answers. It is not the only way, but it is my go to. 

Meditation, healing and self-discovery are all about going within to that profound and remarkable internal landscape. You may encounter some bumps on your journey. You may run into darkness and you may revisit some difficult memories or your past, but when you arm yourself with light, forgiveness and neutrality – you embrace the art of self-mastery.

Embracing Your Magic

Leave a comment Standard

Sometimes embracing your magic means stepping out of resistance. If magic is simply your own energy in movement, then resistance is often the enemy. We all know what it is like to resist something or someone. Maybe it is something someone said, what they did or maybe it is a belief that you strongly oppose. When you resist an energy, it will end up controlling you. Sure whatever you have resisted may not have anything to do with you, but ultimately, if you want your freedom, it is your responsibility to clear out your resistance. That is what will allow any energy that doesn’t belong to move out and that is when you can begin embracing your magic.

Easier said than done. I agree. It is not always simple to just step out of resistance. Depending on the issue, it can take days, weeks, months and even years to clear your resistance. So where do you even begin? Well, there are two ways I would like to introduce – neutrality and forgiveness. Let’s start with forgiveness. It is the quickest way to clear karma and unwanted energy. Allowing yourself to vibrate in forgiveness is kind of like an avalanche. What you have been holding onto and what has been limiting you, finally falls away. How do you achieve this? Well, usually with time you just work out your issue in your day to day life. For example, you may resist someones way of living and end up embracing the lie, but over time you have an epiphany that fighting it isn’t the answer. You begin to forgive yourself and shift your focus to your own truth. You begin to embrace your magic…

Aside from forgiveness, neutrality is another way of stepping out of resistance. Neutrality is the state of non-judgment and non-resistance. Like forgiveness this is a mindset that can take time achieving, but it is not impossible. When you are able to look at what you are in judgement of and accept it as it is, you take back your power. You get your energy back in movement. But, but I can’t accept it as it is, it is WRONG! Acceptance, doesn’t necessarily mean that you agree with what you are resisting. It simply means you see it as it is and are not in judgment of it. There may be a religion or political party that you disagree with. Finding neutrality doesn’t mean you have to subscribe to the beliefs or ideas of what you oppose, it just means you are making a choice not to resist it. Just think, with the amount of resistance you have towards someone or something, what if you took all that energy and poured it into something positive. What if you directed your energy to your truth and what you love. Sure, there may be times in your life that you need to fight. You are not wrong, but there is an alternative.

At times it can be quick and easy to let go and other times it can take years. It all depends on you. If you are interested in learning more about these topics, I do teach a workshop on forgiveness and I also teach the concept of neutrality in the Art of Mediation I Series. Remember, playing the victim and playing the blame game won’t get you too far. Taking responsibility for your own resistance may be the miracle you have been waiting for. Movement is on the other side of resistance. Embrace your magic!
