The Numerology of 2018 by Felicia Bendetz

2018 = 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11 Year of Mastery

The Numerology of 2018 points to 11 which is the Master number. Then reduce again: 1 + 1 = 2 Some numerologists never reduce the Master numbers and so this would be an 11 Universal Year.

A constant Push Pull

The Numerology of 2018 points to The Master numbers which brings an undeniable intensity and a higher spiritual purpose. The Master numbers carry a higher frequency and vibratory influence. Energetically speaking, they’re always pushing you. In practical terms, in the year 2018, the energy supporting and guiding all of us is rather intense. This means that we’re going to feel high-strung mixed with a certain level of anxiety. We are going to feel a constant push and pull to be more and do better, often to the point of distraction. You might also notice that you have higher expectations for yourself, even when others can’t see that those feelings are going on inside of you. Everyone will be getting the internal call to step it up this year.

The Healing Power of the Breath

How deep do you breathe? Your breath tells your story!

Just look at children and how they radiate such Joy. They breathe deeply, are present, fully connected to themselves and what they are feeling.

They are spontaneous, free and full of abundant joy.

So what happened to us?

  • Time is ‘speeding up’, there is just ‘not enough time’
  • We live life from the limiting beliefs of the subconscious mind.
  • We are stressed out trying to control our ‘reality’
  • The Lack Mentality….’not enough money’ ‘not enough work’ ‘not enough time’
  • We are ill or dis-eased, do not sleep properly and we cannot fully embrace the joy of being alive.
  • We have lost connection to our bodies and our body wisdom and forgotten how to BREATHE!

Overcoming Trauma

Overcoming trauma is no easy task. BodyTalk and Kundalini Yoga has provided me with the strength, courage, resilience and returned me back to health after living in turbulence for such a long time.

It has been 4 months now since my mother died. We lived with this possiblity for a year as she tried to cure it. I don’t believe that I would have been able to navigate through these difficult times without the resources both BodyTalk and Kundalini Yoga has provided me. This last year has been a long haul and it is not over yet as my father is now ill.

The story…

It was traumatic and a shock to loose my mama so quickly. She had been declining and the hospital had given her 3 months so we’d been making plans to go on holiday and make the most of the time she had left. The last time I saw her when she was compesmetus was a week before she died. She was in a desperate state and did not want to die and was finding it hard to breathe because the tumour had rapidly spread through her lungs and was pressing on her heart. She couldn’t lie down, she was breathless and scared.

When my mother got Cancer…..

My mother was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer a year ago. This has been a challenging time for our whole family and we still don’t  know what the outcome will be. It has been a deep emotional journey for me and in many ways it has been a blessings because it has pushed me deeper into my Kundalini yoga practice to find the strength, clarity and inner resources that I have needed at this time. I honestly don’t know how I would have managed this year without it.

Initially when I found out my mother had cancer, I went into a deep state of terror. My father was also declining and I had had a difficult 6 months with a sick child.  It stirred up many feelings of desperation; wanting my mother to come to me and her not being there. I had often experienced that sense of falling that comes from needing to be emotionally held as a child and not getting it.

The 11 moon points of a woman

Have you noticed how your mood is in constant flux? One day you can feel bright as a button and the next day you feel inward and in need of a duvet day?! Perhaps you feel insecure or fearful and then suddenly feel this shift to excitement and vitality?

The woman is ruled by the moon so as the outer moon waxes and wanes so too does her inner moon and her 11 moon points which shift every 2.5 days. This is called her moon cycle and is different from her menstrual cycle. She will be influenced by this cycle in her mood and the way that she interacts with the world through her whole life and it will be set to a particular pattern unless she experiences shock or something traumatic. No longer do you have to feel that crazy or that there is something wrong; this is your innate nature as a woman and it brings you many gifts! You are constantly changing and are deeply intuitive so we need to learn to trust ourselves. Men are ruled by the sun and only have one moon point on their chin and so they are much steadier than women.

Meditation for Rough Times Ahead

This meditation is key to a Kundalini Yoga session: We always tune in with Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo x3

(I bow to the infinite wisdom within myself)

Sit in Easy pose with a straight spine (crossed legged position either on the floor or sit upright on a chair). Bend the right elbow and relax it near the body, raise the right hand up to the side as if taking an oath. Hold the first two fingers straight, joined and pointing up. Curl the other two fingers down into the palm and lock the thumb over them.

Hold the left hand in the same mudra with the two outstretched fingers touching the heart wherever you feel the heart centre is. Normally if you draw a line between the nipples and drop a perpendicular line from the nose, the intersection is the heart area or heart lotus. Make the outstretched fingers as straight as possible for better electromagnetic field around you.

Breathe slowly, meditatively and with control taking the breath from the nose up to the third eye (between eye brows) and then down to the heart where the fingers are. The breath must go touching the entire area, and you must feel it. Either keep the eyes closed or look at the tip of the nose.

Commitment and Excellence

Do you remember when you wanted to come to class and couldn’t? Do you remember when you wanted to get up in the morning and be with your God and couldn’t? Do you remember when you wanted to love and be with somebody and couldn’t? All problems on this planet come from “couldn’t.” It gives us a slip from our dharma, from our destiny. We need to make our will so clean, clear and positive that “couldn’t” does not touch our shores.

Today’s Reminder For Commitment

Kundalini Yoga takes away “couldn’t” and gives us excellence. In creating excellent character, it gives a pathway of essential sacrifice, which gives maximum happiness. If we cannot sacrifice our ego, attachments, anger, lust and greed—what can we sacrifice? These faculties force our “couldn’t” upon us. Things will not change until you change them through the Divine You within you, which allows you to sacrifice. Reality in you makes you realize. This is the law of the Lord, Purkha, and Nature, Prakirti and will never change. You must change with it.

Sequence has a consequence. When we start a sequence, the consequence will be there. If you do not want consequences, do not start the sequence. Have that control! Control your “couldn’t”!

“There is nothing beyond commitment, there is nothing before commitment, and there is nothing in commitment, because commitment is complete within itself.” – Yogi Bhajan.

How Many Times a Day do you Hear This? – Commitment & Excellence.

How many times a day do you hear yourself saying ‘I couldn’t’, ‘I don’t have time’, ‘I can’t?’

DSCF6972

These are limiting beliefs that hold in a place of lack or ‘stuck-ness’.

There are always reasons not to do something particularly when it is about nurturing the Self.

The first step to happiness is Commitment.

What are you going do to commit to finding your excellence?

DSCF6987

In Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan talks about excellence; not excellence in doing but excellence in being. We run after being a good enough parent, friend, partner, therapist, business person particularly as our belief systems of ‘I am not good enough’ is endemic in our society. What if we were to find a time to nurture that part of us that is excellence? That always Is? 

BodyTalk and Kundalini Yoga- A potent combination….

The combination of Kundalini Yoga and BodyTalk is a profound one

1. What hesitations did you have about working with me?

I wasn’t really clear what Bodytalk was, or how it could really help but was prepared to give it a go as I wanted to work through some issues that had been holding me back for sometime and I trusted your judgement.

2. What results have you achieved since we started working together?

I’m feeling very different in myself. The main thing is that everything feels a LOT less fraught. I was carrying a lot of baseline tension and was very reactive with everything.  I sleep deeply and can manage fine with less rest. I can stay present in conflict situations and note what’s going on, with me and with the situation, without flying off the handle or going deeply into a pain state. I’m much calmer and able to withdraw gracefully rather than going for more conflict.

Living on Prana-Universal Life Force

The Art of Prana and Kundalini Yoga

Henri Monfort has not eaten food for the last 7 years and has trained his body to be nourished with Prana.  Many sages and yogi’s for centuries have also perfected this practice and currently there is about 35,000 people in the world who live in this way.

So what is Prana?  It is the Universal Life Force, the sub atomic energy or the first unit of energy.  Prana is the motion and coding of life energies through the realms of the mind and body and it is that which gives us life and which resides within us and everything around us.  By nourishing yourself with Prana then you are living within the flow of Universal Consciousness and nourishing yourself with it and so you experience Oneness or Totality which people describe as Universal Love.
