Practice with the founder and CEO of RA MA Institute.
Crystallizing your transparent consciousness.
Power points, traveling, & rebooting your whole mindstream.
New moon in 26 degrees Leo.
Leo is the archetype of courage, total fearlessness, & trusting yourself. Confidence is king.
Regal, or royal, self-holding is an important part of the raj energetic stream.
Renewing or resetting your mind at a point's notice.
The human brain has to metabolize about 16x more information than in previous centuries (because of technology). We need meditation to handle the info-dementia or Mega Information Syndrome.
If you don't know what to do, wait.
Architects of Sound – Kal Akal, New Patterns Of The Unlimited – Session 3
ÒKal AkalÓ - the mantra that pierces through the veil of this physical world. The mantra chanted when someone transitions from the earth plane. Chant ÒKal Akal,Ó placing it into the arcline. Listen and hear the sound of your own voice. Every piece of information you might be searching outside of yourself for is already IN the sound current. Take the sound and:
1) Engage it. Use the tongue and the navel to get as close as you can with pure heart intention.
3) Act. Cut through the self-deception to change something.
"If you don't like the sound of your own voice, your frequency, you've got some work to do. Probably there are lots of other things you don't like about yourself." Ð Guru Jagat
Full yoga kriya set with 31 minute meditation.

The Attitude of Gratitude is the Highest Yoga
“As I fill my notebook with phonetic spellings I lament the loss of my innocence. Why can’t I just have sweet chats with the tea-shop boys? Or repeat the number of siblings I have? Or ask, ‘can I take your photograph?’ No. I am infected with the desire to grasp meanings, which makes it difficult to keep things simple. And any language makes a home for those who speak it…" - Karen Connelly
Wisdom is different from knowledge. Wisdom comes from knowledge + experience, because knowledge without experience is just gibberish.
Your brain is essentially meat with electricity running through it, so of course people have different ways to create meaning. We want you to at least understand what Yogi Bhajan meant, which apparently very few people do.
The rest of the world thinks the 'first world' is out of its mind for not being absurdly grateful for everything. It's our job to use our immense blessings & privilege, & help others.
"What are you without gratitude?...
Love cannot be defined. What can be defined is not love. If God can be defined, it's not God, but both can be experienced...
Intelligence & intellects are my Chinese ball: I play with them. There's no big deal. I'm rational, irrational. I can create & un-create. My mind, it has no...I have built my mind to have no horizons. My mind is horizonless. So anarchy is my friend. And I see in that anarchy...anarchy, when it is practiced, it is called 'anarchy', when it is realized it is called 'Infinity.' And that's what God is." - Yogi Bhajan
Make a list of all the things that you're grateful for.
Working on becoming grateful for everything!
Prosperity, success & just living a good life all come from being grateful for what we have.
"There's no logic in the negative." - Harijiwan
We can't change the past, but we can change the future.
Time is a gift; space is an opportunity; & these teachings are an unimaginable treasure trove for humanity to use, delve into, & solve problems with the intelligence & understanding therein.
Especially with the pressure of social media & the pandemic, we have to each decide & understand how to direct our individual energy in the most efficient way possible to help others & serve. Not everyone can do everything & everyone has a "zone of genius" where they can help most effectively. Yogi Bhajan said "dharma" is when the hours go by & you lose yourself in your work; it's essentially a "flow state," or doing what you enjoy & what you're simultaneously gifted at.
He also said "fear of obligation" is a major hurdle. You're not obligated to do anything, so listen to your internal guidance system. The example he gave was picking your friends up from somewhere. He said basically, will they die if you don't? Be direct; use a little common sense & apply some discernment when you direct your own energy field. Another term for this is "idiot compassion" (Chogyam Trungpa) where you give to people because you feel like you have to, without considering if it's necessary or a good idea.
This is also why we're into the warrior-saint archetype; we do not want you to be pushovers or spineless. It takes courage to protect yourself. "Not to bow down to wrong pressure...No one shall walk over you, but no one who needs you will be deprived of your strength."
The Fortune of Gratitude
"You know, you are very lucky. I am very lucky—I don't know who is without luck." - Yogi Bhajan
Gratitude gives you deep, lasting peace.
It can also expand your radiant body & prevent insecurity because you can just see clearly & feel appreciative for your circumstances.
Listening to others can be a compassionate way to hold space.
Simple appreciation is a great spiritual principle.
Work on deserving before you even think about desiring anything. A yogi works on becoming desireless, & you have to be "deserving & desireless" as a student before you could even potentially be given anything.
'Bahota Karam' is a mantra for appreciating all that comes to you, good & bad, as the most beautiful blessing. We love the version by Grammy-award winning White Sun!
Working on the ten bodies, including the prana (life force, or energy behind the breath).
Especially with the mask coverings, it's important to work on getting oxygen in the lungs. Breath of fire for a couple of minutes every couple hours will help keep your body and brain oxygenated (Yogi Bhajan said everyone should do this every day anyway).
Lung capacity can always be improved upon with long, deep breathing. Yogi Bhajan recommended what he called a three-part breath, although it's one fluid movement: breathing into the lower lungs, then up the chest, then up into the upper lungs, and exhaling back down slowly. This slowly over time builds your lung capacity and gently stretches the diaphragm. Don't push yourself too hard and be careful teaching to children; stop if you feel pain because you can tear your diaphragm.
Sovereignty requires a huge range of sources of input.
Pranic center opening.
Amor Destiny: love of one’s destiny.
Holding the routine sacred. A daily, householder practice is the highest practice.
You having a steady yoga & meditation practice that you do regularly every day, is the greatest gift you could give yourself for stability & a sense of self-security. It lets you feel normalcy in turbulent times, & shows you how your mind is constantly reacting differently & how that is your mind, not the exercise or your environments. It helps you gradually master yourself, the mind & the exercise.
There's not a lot of gray area between destiny & fate. If you fall from destiny to fate, you're done for & it takes lifetimes to come back, so just practice.
Destiny is about elevation of everyone & putting more positivity & happiness into the world.
"A spiritual guide or a spiritual teacher teaches you to go along with spiritual destiny. Because spiritual destiny is the most productive destiny & it has no beginning & no end...
It is my prayer that when you leave this course this time, your vigor & your dignity may rise enough as you can master your own destiny & that is the purpose of human life...
There is a fight between destiny & fate, & once you fall in the hand of fate, there is nothing one can do. You are gone forever. What is wrong with fate? Just nothing, you will never ever be satisfied through all cycle of time & space. It is like a cancer, it grows & grows & grows & grows & grows but it won't let you, it is not terminal, that's a tragedy of fate. Fate is endless too. Destiny is Infinity into God, that's why it has a fulfillment...
I don't want anything again, I want to get it together, get it together. Together, to-gather something. I want to get it together, I want to get my senses together & make one sense. Who am I? There are three question which in every religion you'll be asked to answer. Who are you? Where you come from? Where you have to go? That finishes the entire religious study of all religions on the planet. Who are you? I am destiny. Destiny has identity, destiny have path & destiny has a speed...
The human integrity is to have successive stability to do the journey, because fight is always between fate & destiny. Destiny can be achieved only by faith." - Yogi Bhajan
Gene Therapy Shield
Work on protecting your genes.
Create a “one-inch shield” around your genes.
Protection as a by-product of the aura, radiant body, & sensory senses. Developing the ability to think critically, which is an on-going, lifelong process. Yogi Bhajan said "no one knows everything," put your heads together & keep trying to figure things out.
"We talk about freedom. Real freedom is when you are in the state of Infinity...
I am not saying don't listen to your mind, vichaar karo, vichaar means how you have to deal, make a strategy of it...Take every aspect into thinking...you are thinking selfishly only for yourself, that is not thinking, that is not even thoughtful thinking. That is just selfish thinking for self-reasons & they do not become healthy in the end." - Yogi Bhajan
Surfing the Information Superhighway
Yoga for intelligence & clear cognition.
Counter-counter intelligence. In an age of great information & disinformation, you need the intelligence meditation to help you build neural pathways in the brain that are useful in sorting information.
The sheer amount of information that the human brain has to metabolize in one day is the equivalent to 74 G of data. That’s the equivalent of 16 movies & what a well-educated person would have processed in an entire lifetime 500 years ago. (And the number raises 5% every year—Bohn & Short, “Measuring Consumer Information”).
“Attention deficit disorder” developed as a diagnosis in the modern era when attention become the necessary antidote to increasing information due to the rise of technology.
To cope, the human brain develops such practices as as selective attention, so it’s useful to practice slowing down, trying something new, or trying to absorb as much as possible about one particular subject—in a conversation, a lecture, etc. Plus, it’s good to practice taking the same news story & checking lots of variant sources about it—they will all always say vastly different things.
Critical thinking + intuition + attention + empathy = clear-mindedness, or intelligence. For your chi to be moving, you have to circulate. The facts are always beyond language, so people just describe one limb of the elephant, as it were.
You should simplify, streamline & budget your input to what you can handle.
On the innate brilliance & capacity of children.
Claiming the New Era
Yoga for positivity.
We have been in the Aquarian Age already for 8 years (since 2012), but we have to claim the new consciousness on the planet for it to succeed.
It’s bigger than all of us & if we do that, we will have an era of peace, prosperity, healing & happiness for all people & all life faster than we can imagine.
This is all arranged for us, we just have to show up & accept our destinies to be in this lucky timestream.
Do the Panj Grainee Kriya every day for 11 minutes to get super high & replenish the pranic force, so needed in this time. All of the yogic pranayams are good for the blood, often aiding the white cells & immunity. Yogi Bhajan said if you can consciously send your white blood cells to the parts of your body that need it, you can heal yourself in no time.
“There is no limit of immunity. Our body has the perfect power to create high frequency protective immunity...That is the best vitamin; that is the best health capsule you can ever take—your own breath of life.” - Yogi Bhajan
True positivity & budgeting your inflow. Leadership moving forward is about who can organize all the mega-information in a constructive way.
