Shaken Awake…

this was my beast that took me to uni everyday... (not exact one, but close to)

this was my beast that took me to uni everyday… (not exact one, but close to)

A lesson: I drove a worn out VW beatle to university pretty much everyday. I would remember leaving my house, picking up my friend and arriving at my destination and whatever happened in between was a blur that I called my ‘blank state’ (irrelevant) . My friend was a bubbly, care-free soul and was pretty relaxed about not fastening her seat belt ever (irrelevant). The trip was the same everyday and as usual I would ‘blank’ out for most of it (irrelevant). Then there was this particular day that changed everything… No, it wasn’t so much that a car to my left (I was driving on the right side) missed the stop sign and in full force rammed my car. It was instead, the very profound experience that happened 10 seconds prior (relevant). It was like being shaken AWAKE. Everything around me was crystal clear. I heard the voice of a woman; not my friend and not anyone else around me. But the voice from an unknown source, very sternly commanding me to order my friend to secure her seat belt immediately. The moment she clicked the belt into place was the exact time the car hit us. If she wasn’t wearing that seat belt she would of been killed and possibly me too. Who was that voice? My friend didn’t hear it, only I did..

I have been seeking the answer to the question for a long time and only until my mother passed that it became clearer to me of the possibility of who or what it was.

What I have come to learn through my many years of practicing yoga is that I am not my body. I am not my mind, but I am the light within that propels and activates energy through my body and mind – the soul. There are many layers to our living state and only identifying with the body and the mind is limiting and keeps us from deeper connections. Living from soul awareness means dissolving the veils that create the illusion of separateness. When we consciously take hold of this concept, the capacity to feel oneness becomes a reality. Our communication with each other can become very clear as though in a state of being telepathic. That state of oneness is a process of being so deeply immersed with another living soul that in that instant a very clear state of absorption begins to happen. For instance: waking up in the middle of the night just before your baby cries. Knowing when a friend is about to call you. Sensing unrest, it’s endless…

Yoga is a magnificent and elegant path that leads to a very concise immersion of ONENESS.

For my October YOGA retreat I am focusing on the union between Yoga and Psychic Metaphysical Arts. I have asked my divine and beautiful medium-ship teacher (janelle campbell) to join us and together we dive in deep offering solid methods and tools of connecting beyond this veil of what we see, feel, sense… you will love this immersion of oneness!
