energy does matter
When i go on my Yoga retreats or trips, I always have a plan or general thought of what I will be offering over the few days. Without fail, the collective energy of the group ends up dictating what we actually end up studying ! While in Mozambique recently, we went to work through healing with a little help from our cetaceans (dolphins), yoga asanas and meditation. The week unfolded into a study of the energy centres of our bodies and how they influence and effect us. At the end of out time together we had formed a close bond of united energy, having collectively spent time discussing, thinking, moving, eating and sleeping. On our first trip out on the dolphin boat, as soon as we sighted the dolphins, everyone present had a huge grin on their faces . They never fail to pass on their "happy, vibrant energy" to us all in their close proximity. It is as if they do this intentionally and with love ! Instinctively we "pick" this vibe up and transfer it into an emotional response. It will never cease to amaze me ! Some people never venture into the ocean to swim with these magical creatures of Neptune's, content to view them from the surface gaining the same benefits ! It has been documented that dolphins gravitate to a pregnant human and show them much attention, as well as those we label "mentally challenged". This could be as simple as depression. The dolphins pick up on our energies and display great interest in certain people. They chatter and click away to us and each other, I'm sure they believe we understand them ! If we allow ourselves a little time of mediation each day, just that time alone in silence, we can tune into the space that allows us to feel the energy bodies of each and everyone. Some of us are already more in tune, while others need to practice and flex their energetic muscles so to speak. Training is all it requires, just like everything else on this Yogic journey, put in the time and you will reap the benefits. One of my teachers compare our minds to a muddy pond. In trying to clear this pond and gain better vision within, he suggests that each day you deposit a cupful of water. Many days of this and the mud will be less as the water becomes more, eventually clearing and visibility will be great ! Take the time spent on your mats as the cup full of water and see the benefits over time. One step, one day and slowly everything becomes clear.
Courage, faith and love WILL get us where we aspire to be !
