I love dreaming and goal-setting.
What more can I say I am a Pisces!
Funny because even from a young child I have had dreams and goals but didn't know that I was a Pisces or motivated or a goal setter. It is so funny really.
This was in the days when I knew nothing about yoga
the effect of the full moon
the effect of the planets
laws of attraction..... etc.etc.
Some may say back in the good old days.
I wish I knew then what I know now.
I love some of the short meditations that are little chants.
I love one that is called Hare Krishna Mantra and I have heard it many different ways.
I was struggling with meditation when I first became a yoga teacher.
Staring into a candle or counting my breaths was so challenging for me and I have to admit that I thought I would never get it and thought it was a waste of time.
My mind would wander and I would struggle to keep still.
I love the positive affirmations particularly one called om shanti om which translates to peace. I love it so much because it is so vibrant and positive.
In the Hindu religion or in the yogi world they believe that if you chant or sing a goal or a dream 108 times each day with the mala beads for a period of time that your message will be heard and it will come true.
108 is a very powerful number.
Just a couple of reasons why the number 108 is so sacred. *The Sun is 108 times the diameter of the earth. * The distance from the earth to the sun is 108 times the diameter of the sun. *Chanting a mantra 108 times aligns ourselves with the will of the universe and its creative energy. *Relating to the human body there are 108 nadis, or main energy lines that are emitted from the heart chakra.
It is such a vibrant and positive message and when I chant and sing these meditations I find myself not thinking about anything else and I feel uplifted and amazing.
"Surrounding ourselves with positivity
and peace is true bliss".
