Welcome, New Moon! In honor of the New Moon I started a new sadhana today. What is sadhana, you ask? Sadhana is a sankrit word for “practice”. In Shiva Rea’s teachings there are six sadhanas: Vira, Hatha, Shanti, Creativity, Health/Regeneration and Bhakti.
My sadhana is a blend of Bhakti and Vira. In Vira I am working on fire. Stoking the tapas(fire) within myself. I am feeling I need some fire for purification. Fire is cleansing and Vira sadhana will provide me with strength, flexibility, stamina and courage to change. In Bhakti sadhana I will be working on heartfire. This sadhana is all about the love! My yoga today was agni namaskar and then I sat with my Love ALL Ways mala and chanted 108 OMs. Pretty powerful stuff! My sankalpa(intent) is to be loving and patient as I stay with this practice for the next thirty days. I look forward to what my arise in the next month.
It was interesting how I felt after the first go around. I felt lighter and more centered. Let you know more as this journey continues!
Love All Ways!
