Returning to Autumn

Hope you enjoyed a wonderful summer! Now that fall is upon us, we have new updates on kundalini classes and happenings around Alaska.

A few weeks ago, I was on the East Coast, soaking up a few last days of balmy summer weather. I was so grateful and appreciative of the warm sunny days, telling everyone I wasn’t ready for the cold and the dark I knew I would come back to. Two days after returning to Anchorage, we had our first freeze and snowfall. It didn’t last long, but I was surprised to find that it didn’t bother me. I didn’t think I was ready, but when it happened, I found myself admiring how pretty the snow was, and feeling a little bit of that happy excitement I used to feel as a kid when the snow gave us an unplanned holiday from school. Reflecting on this moment of humility, I wonder, what else in my life do I mistakenly believe I’m not ready for?

I’ve heard it said that our questions bring forth answers, so I’m practicing and sharing these two meditations to help smooth the way for whatever comes next:

If you choose to do these on your own, as with any kundalini practice, please remember to tune in with the Adi mantra before doing the meditation, respect your body’s limitations (simply visualizing yourself doing the posture is beneficial), and close the practice with a mantra at the end.

Sat nam,
