The 7 reasons why Kundalini Yoga is essential to those on the spiritual path

Kundalini yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is a powerful and transformative yoga practice!  It is so much more than just physical postures, it is the “yoga of awareness” and a technology for improving consciousness, so crucial to those on the spiritual path.

So how does it work and why does it work so quickly?! The combination of kriyas (physical postures), breath work, mudras, mind focus, meditation, mantra, energy work and relaxation serves to help us clear our fears, blocks, and limitations, and elevate our vibration and awareness to a whole new level. It can very quickly provide the leverage we are seeking to clear unconscious patterns and behaviour and consequently raise our vibration in a way that allows us to connect more fully and completely to our infinite selves and true potential (depending on what we choose to practice and for how long of course!).

Check out the 7 reasons (of many more) below why a regular kundalini yoga practice could well be the very thing that all those already on the spiritual or personal transformation path need to up-level their current personal and spiritual development. As a long-time spiritual explorer, things only really started to shift for me when I picked up this practice and did it consistently and completely!

1Kundalini yoga connects us to our intuition and higher self – spiritual seekers are often searching for that inner connection to the higher self and intuition. The power of kundalini yoga helps this process along more quickly by silencing the mind and allowing us to hear and connect more deeply with our inner senses and intuitive guidance.

2Kundalini yoga opens us to the energy of love and compassion – kundalini yoga works to cleanse and clear the chakras and in doing so helps us connect more deeply to our heart. Through this connection, we gain the power to release judgements towards ourselves and others, and see only love in its place.

3Kundalini yoga allows us to connect to our authentic self – as spiritual seekers, speaking our truth and operating in line with our true purpose, is often a key driver in our work to transcend the ego and reach higher states of awareness.  Kundalini yoga works like a super hero to strip away those false masks, identities, and protective layers to not only connect you to your own truth, but catapult this out into the world.

4Kundalini yoga awakens and expands our consciousness – through a regular practice of kundalini yoga, our innate awareness simply grows and expands.  It allows us to perceive and connect with more subtle aspects of the physical as well as the infinite field of consciousness and use this subtle intelligence to support and enhance our day to day flow and experience.

5Kundalini yoga balances the negative mind – many people, even spiritual seekers, are plagued by the constant chatter of negative thoughts, or the churn of the mind.  Kundalini yoga works to activate our neutral mind which allows us the space to see through the illusion of the mind and into more freedom, choice and flexibility.

6Kundalini yoga connects us to the present moment – Eckhart Tolle’s book “The Power of Now” is the cornerstone book for many on the spiritual path and asserts “as you honour the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolves”.   Kundalini yoga helps us activate our connection to the power of now, feel the silence and bliss (as well as helping us to release our karmic patterns along the way!).

7Kundalini yoga raises our vibrational frequency – kundalini yoga is also all about expanding the aura and raising our vibrational frequency and radiance.  As we know “everything is energy” including ourselves, and “we attract what we radiate”.  So, by working on our energetic radiance through kundalini yoga, we can expand and extend our energetic frequency and raise our frequency closer to that which we wish to attract.  Synchronicities here we come!

So, if you on the spiritual path and this article resonates in any way, get ‘ye’ to your local kundalini yoga class, you might be slightly weirded out, but if you like your energy work, you will love it!  Give it a go, expand the spirit and let your consciousness soar.   And if you don’t believe me, check out Russell Brand’s take on kundalini yoga: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNMdg0kFS2s

Breaking the chain reaction…

Did you know that 90% of your brain activity is focused on your things outside conscious awareness? And that when this relates to our behaviour, this means we are sometimes “stuck” in unconscious habits and behaviours that keep us stressed and worn out? It is only when we start to consciously relate to ourselves in a new way that we begin to “wake up” and start to see more of what is really going on!

You may not know this, but our unconscious world pretty much calls the shots. Most of us walk around on auto-pilot responding to the prompts and nudging of inner conditioning and previous experiences. This conditioning, rather than our own conscious intention, is often the thing that influences our lives the most, albeit out of our own conscious awareness.

This means what tends to happen is we live at the place of “reaction” rather than “response”. When we react, often to unconscious triggers, we may react quickly and with emotion, perhaps allowing our anger, stress or irritation to take over. Over a period of time, this can have a detrimental effect on our overall wellbeing and health (particularly to our immune system).

We can however take steps to reduce these effects and activate the body’s natural breaking system. In doing so, we can counter-act the stress response that has become our “normal” and learn new ways to respond and handle challenges in our lives.

Try this right now. Find a quiet room where you won’t be disturbed and sit comfortably on the chair or floor. Now lift your right hand up and close off your right nostril and begin breathing in and slowly through your left nostril. Do this for just 3 minutes.

Now notice how much better you feel that you did before? Do you feel more calm? Do you feel more aware of your own self? More centred? This is just one way you could learn to relax and calm.

All too often people spend too much time in their own head and in their own problems when with a few simple changes… life can be very different.

To your health, happiness and wellbeing.

Kundalini Yoga

Reduce Stress and Improve Wellbeing with Kundalini Yoga

  • Are you looking to improve your happiness, health and wellbeing this year?
  • Would you like to learn new ways to reduce stress and create inner calm and wellness?
  • Are you willing to trying something quite different and transformative to get you there?

If so, Kundalini Yoga could be for you.

Kundalini yoga is a transformative and powerful yoga that works on the mind, body and soul.  It is “yoga of awareness” and combines physical exercises with meditation, mantra, relaxation and breath work to give the student a complete experience of inner wellbeing and connection.

Kundalini yoga is the yoga for the average householder and can be practised by anyone.  It is often seen as a powerful catalyst for personal change and development.   It is a complete science handed down through a lineage and legacy of teachers originating in India, thousands of years ago.   It was brought to the West in the 1960s by Yogi Bhajan, a spiritual leader and teacher from India who decided the time had come for this sacred technology to be available to everyone.

Kundalini yoga differs from other yoga in that it is taught in specific sets. This is to ensure you benefit from the desired effect and change of state.  In this way it supports full integration of mind, body and spirit. 

In Kundalini Yoga, each yoga set has key benefits which allow you to work on key aspects of yourself.  Many of these also target specific health and wellness issues, such as:

  • Reducing stress
  • Enhancing positivity
  • Developing self-esteem
  • Reducing negativity
  • Developing intuition and higher awareness
  • Tackling addictions
  • Developing emotional balance

Kundalini yoga sets always include meditation, sometimes silent, or sometimes with mantra and music.  This enables you to have a complete experience of connecting to your inner self in a new and elevating way and will complement the Kriya.   In particular, for meditations with mantra, the power of the Naad and sound current, allows you (without trying, thinking or doing anything) to elevate your thought patterns and enhance your overall experience.  The mantras can be spell-bounding and truly transformative with the power to quieten and transcend even the most active of minds!

Kundalini Yoga focuses specifically on the flow of energy through the body and includes many physical, mental and energetic perspective benefits. It also works across the 7 chakras and aura as well as the ten bodies as identified in yogic philosophy.  Some key benefits include: strengthening the immune system, creating a stronger and healthier body, balancing emotions and the glandular system, strengthening the nervous system, as well as bringing clarify of mind. All of these things together promotes a sense of peace and inner tranquillity and wellness.

And remember Kundalini Yoga is so much more than just an exercise routine to keep you healthy.  It is a complete experience for the mind, body and the soul and a platform for personal transformation and elevation.   When practised regularly it can affect your perspective and perception of life and your role within it.  It can bring conscious awareness, intentions and truth to our world.

So if you are looking to elevate your experience for this year and unlock your creative potential, come join us for a local class!

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a healing modality that can heal the body at physical, mental and emotional level.  

Hands will be placed non-intrusively on the body or around the body, to facilitate the flow of energies and aid in the clearing and cleansing of the aura. All the participant needs to do is set the invitation and intention for the healing and the therapist will do the rest.

We also offer an additional guided relaxation to help the client relax and sink more deeply into the treatment.

I felt heat coming into my body, and a sense of overall wellbeing and relaxation while I am receiving the healing. After the healing I felt calm and serene and the energy from the problem areas of my body had definitely shifted

Meditation

There are many different types of meditation.

We build a very easy and simple to learn meditation support into our coaching to enable you to relax the mind and connect the inner self for a greater sense of wellbeing and happiness.

When I first started meditating I really didn’t know what I was doing, but learning to meditate has been the best thing I have ever introduced into my life. It has given me more balance and more groundedness and a much stronger sense of myself.

I am now, calmer, more relaxed and more conscious in my every day life even when I am not meditating as I can draw on the inner calm it has given me. I also use it to shut the world out just when I need to!

Energy Coaching

Life is rarely as simple as we think. Not only are you creating the experience of everything in your life by the way you think about it on a day to day level (for example how you perceive and filter certain events and draw conclusions about whether things are good or bad for you), you are also influencing the deeper field of pure potential with every thought and action that you have.

At conscious intentions, we have years of learning and working with key energy principles such as the law of attraction, the power of intention, intuition and synchronicity. We now want to share the learning more widely to help you achieve more flow, grace, forgiveness, love, gratitude and peace in your life. We can build these principles into our coaching as relevant.

Coaching blended with coaching on energy principles can give you a deeper understanding and connection with your inner and energy self, waking you up to the real limitless potential of what it means to be you. We also offer a free intuitive life journey reading to any one signing up to a coaching programme. This is an intuitive coaching model that helps you unlock your unconscious world and help you identify and address key energies and influences currently present in your life.

I now understand how I can live through my intuition with more flow and authenticity. This allows me to live life according to my own rules and not other peoples. I was always in my head before, now I know how to shift my energy and choose to listen to my heart not just my head, learning to tell the difference has been very powerful for me

Life Coaching

I provide a very different kind of life coaching and one which focuses more on generating wellbeing from the inside out rather than the inside in. Happiness is after all “an inside job” and when you learn to optimise your thinking and communication from the inside out, you realise that happiness and wellbeing was there all along.  So, while we are working together on whatever it is you are seeking to achieve, I will also be looking to support you on a much deeper and transformational journey of awareness and understanding, across all aspects of your life, through coaching I offer.

While what we start with and how this works, will obviously depend on your specific coaching needs and requirements, the Conscious Intentions coaching approach is all about working with you through the powerful tools of NLP, transformational coaching, hypnosis and other targeted techniques, to give you more power, personal freedom and happiness across all aspects of your life.

We will work with you to show up the unconscious influences at play at your life (beliefs, values, perceptions and more) which means you no longer have to operate on auto-pilot (where you unconscious mind or thinking calls the shots), but can develop a much greater wisdom and understanding of the world and your place in it.   I will also teach you the relevant NLP skills direct so you can use the toolkit yourself time and time again for evolved thinking and greater happiness.

I have been working with Kelly for about 6 months – and my life is completely changed. I am far more conscious of my own thoughts and how they create my experience. I now get that it really is down to me. I feel much more empowered and have a completely different perspective in life

Tapping

Tapping are two techniques that are quick and effective and can bring change about very quickly.

Tapping is otherwise known as the Emotional Freedom Technique. This allows you to reframe your experience through the tapping of the energy meridians in the body.


I was surprised at just how simple tapping is, in just a short period of time, things felt very different!

Hypnotherapy

You may not know this, but our unconscious world pretty much calls all the shots.

Most of us walk around on auto-pilot responding to the prompts and nudging of inner conditioning and previous experiences. This conditioning, rather than our own conscious intention, is often the thing that influences our lives the most, albeit out of our own conscious awareness.

For any change to stick, conscious and unconscious alignment of your hopes, dreams and desires is key. Without this change is so much harder as will power alone is simply not enough!

This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnotherapy is very simple a trance state, an altered state of conscious, which is a necessary normal function of the human mind. Consider for example, have you every driven a car and realised that you were doing so unconsciously, have you every day dreamed and gone off into your own little world, even for a moment.

All these are altered states of consciousness, so is hypnosis. We use hypnosis to talk directly to your unconscious mind (through a gentle eyes closed process) and make the change stick. You can simply relax and let your unconscious mind do all the work.

For me, hypnotherapy was like entering a lovely relaxing and calm oasis of the mind, when you can allow yourself to just float await into a beautifully relaxed state, allowing your unconscious mind to do the rest.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It is an attitude and methodology founded by Dr Richard Bandler and John Grindler that allows people to think and communicate more effectively.

NLP studies the way we represent our experience through our neurology (neuro), how we communicate with ourselves and others (linguistic), and how we can change our habitual ways of thinking, communicating and behaving (programming). So is essentially the process of learning about how we think, communicate and act so that we can start thinking, communicating and acting more usefully and fluently.

NLP, as a successful model for success, is a key part of our approach for change and getting change to stick. We also teach you NLP toolkit direct so that you can take NLP attitude and skill set away with you to use again and again with anyone you want!

Neuro-linguistic programming is a very positive tool, there is much more to NLP people than people think. Not only is it an amazing toolkit that helps individuals address problems quickly and easily, it is an attitude a way of seeing, believing and behaving differently at your best
