no-time-square-pictureLet’s be totally frank,

Even if you have experienced benefits of meditation, even if you know meditation makes you feel good and it’s good for your health,

it is still OHHH SOOO HARD TO DO IT!!!

It’s hard to find time and it’s hard to force yourself to just sit still without being entertained.

And I’m talking about your own personal practice. Not about meditations you go through in classes, retreats, or accidentally stumble upon online.

I’m talking about times, when there is no one else around. It can sound like a crazy idea to just sit with your monkey mind and do nothing, especially, when you have so much work to do.

For those struggling times I want you remember that meditation will CREATE MORE TIME FOR YOU.

As Ghandi said: “I have so much to accomplish today that I must meditate for two hours instead of one.”

He said it because he knew, a longer meditation will make him more effective and he’ll make less mistakes.

In today’s video, besides being a little sharp on you about finding time for meditation, I’ll share 4 ways in which meditation will save you time.

 

This video was filmed at a beautiful studio in Manhattan called HariNYC. Check their schedule for amazing classes in Kundalini Yoga Meditation and Qi Gong.

This summary has been based on Angel Tarot Cards created by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

The MagicianWhen I first found out my personality and soul card, I wasn’t 100% sure how exactly it implies to my life, but it definitely rang true to me. It turns out I’m an The Empress. That day I’ve starred at The Empress card for a long time, I noticed all the details and my life purpose and my personality started to emerge. It become my favorite card of the tarot.

As the years pass by, I feel like I am slowly becoming more and more aligned with the Empress card and I see that the steps I take are very much in line with what this cards represents. It like the fuel that gets my engine going. It’s not the purpose in itself.

I have a feeling it would help you as well to find out your personality and soul cards.

But first: What do Personality and Soul cards describe?

Personality card - indicates what you have come here on Earth to learn in this particular life time. What important task you have set up for yourself to accomplish and to learn. These are large concepts, they don’t just talk about your job or family. This is so big that it can keep you busy your whole life.

Soul card indicates your soul’s purpose throughout all your lifetimes. You have one soul that reincarnates into different persons over the years, centuries and millennia. The deep trait along which your soul is evolving is just one. And that’s what this card talks about.

Step 1: Determine your Personality and Soul Number.

Add together your month, day and year of birth.

For example:

If your birthday is

October 3rd 1979

10 (month) + 3 (day) + 1979 (year) =  1992

reduce the number even further by adding together all the digits.

1+9+9+2 =  21.

When you get 2 digit number which is lower than 22, that’s your personality number.

To find out your soul number, reduce the number even further.

2+1= 3

Your personality number is 21 and your soul number is 3

It is not uncommon to come up with only 1 number for personality and soul (meaning when you add your birthday together, you just get one number):

March 3rd 1981

3+3+1981 = 1987 = 25 = 7

Since 25 is higher than 22, I added 2 + 5 and came up with only one number – 7

In this case your personality and soul numbers are same. If that happens to you, it means that in this life time you are working on your soul’s purpose and that makes you more that much more direct and focused.

If you get number 22, you’ll notice that there isn’t a card corresponding to it. What that means is that your personality number is card 0, the dreamer, and your soul number is 4, the emperor.

There is also a chance that you get 3 numbers. If your first number is 19 you will have 3 numbers 19, 10, 1

This is especially creative path in which all three numbers operate as both personality and soul.

Please calculate your number and than find a corresponding card below.

Step 2: Find the card corresponding to your number(s)

I chose Angel Tarot cards for this reading but any major arcana cards will do. I like that these cards are positive, don’t have frightening images on it and that you also get a little description underneath as well. Please don’t rely on a description too much though :).

Images of cards are below the article.

Step 3: Write down all your impressions.

Write anything that comes to your mind about your relationship to your card(s). Please don’t censor yourself. Look at the pictures closely. Use your intuition, notice any feelings, ideas, sounds and images that flash through your mind.  Trust yourself and your notions and your personality and soul expression will be revealed to you.

Your personality and soul card will become even clearer to you as the time goes by. You might want to meditate on it once in a blue moon :)

In case you are completely lost, next week I will reveal more descriptive meanings behind these cards.

But I do want to give you time to figure it out on your own :)

Please share in the comments below what insights did you get from your cards. Do they ring true to you?

Take a break: Surprise :)

japji-clever-tricks-smallToday, I’m not going to ask you to do any exercises or meditations.

Instead today I want to send you lots of love in form of this video.

 

Have you noticed that even when your wishes come true, there always is something else to obsess about? 

 

Have you noticed that even though you are trying so hard to stop the flow of your thoughts there is never quiet?

 

Today I want to offer you a little escape from your troubles and your cares. 

 

I am in love with a poem, so deep and so profound that I want to repeat it over and over.

In this video I did my best to record the first section of the poem called Song of the Soul or otherwise called Japji Sahib written by Guru Nanak and translated by Ek Ong Kar Kaur Khalsa.

 

 

This past year I went to a tapping of Dr. Oz Show. It was my mom’s request. It’s one of the perks of living in New York, you can go and see shows for free.

What Doctor Oz talked about, was how we block our own circulation and how dangerous it is for us. Don’t take my word for it. Watch this episode on the link below. And yes you can actually see me right in front. I’m wearing bright red pants (45 seconds mark).

Needless to say, prolonged sitting is very bad for you. We all should stand up and walk around at least once in a hour. That way we have less chance of getting blood clots. Our blood will get the chance to circulate freely throughout our body and remove harmful toxins. Plus our brain will get fresh new surge of blood.

 

I am so happy to share with you this exercise that will get your heart beating, your face gets nice and flushed and your legs will sing hallelujah for the little stretch and work out they get.

Come on watch this even if you don’t have time to do it now, just remember this simple exercise and do it next time.

Clint westernYou know those cowboys from old western movies? They always keep their cool, nothing seems to throw them off. At the same time they are quick with a word or to pull out a gun.

Hmm and what’s interesting there is always a lot whistling in those movies….

Watch this video to learn one short little breathing technique that you can practice if you want to be cool as Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

I teach what I find helpful and this is one of these meditations.

The video includes the 3 minute meditation that you can do with me.
