Dream with Clarity, Awareness. Leads to Your Destiny
Clear Light Sleep is practiced through sleep yoga, clear light sleep. It naturally arises when the body is sleeping but the practitioner is not lost in the darkness or dreams. Instead the practitioner sits in pure awareness.
Clear light is the union between emptiness and clarity. Clear meaning emptiness. Light meaning clarity, pure innate awareness. You are the clear light. It is not an object of your experience or a mental state. The pure, luminous awareness in the darkness is blissful, clear, still, without reference, without judgement, without center…there is nor illusion of separation. It is the true nature of mind.
Mayan ‘Way’…Dreams “Sueños son real, son realidad,” (“dreams are real, they are reality”) In Mayan spirituality, dreams are still respected, listened and responded to daily. The Mayan ‘Way’ acknowledges the dreaming practice connects you with your adiosich, your soul, spirit and consciousness.
Dreams are a sacred time for your spirit, soul and consciousness to leave your physical resting body (when properly trained and ready) and travel, in what is also called an astral body. Moreover, dreams are an opportunity to interact with Ajaw (Deities or Mayan Gods), saints and the ancestors. This interaction is noted in the Mayan tradition to occur mainly through rocks, called camahuilles, which can carry the voice of Ajaw, various saints or the ancestors. In addition, the dreams unveil an individuals´ nawal, their calling and destiny. By examining and remembering your dreams, one can better understand with guidance the concept and message communicated in the dreams.
Dreams are very important when becoming an Ajq´ij (Daykeeper) and spiritual healers because the practice will expose the leaders, priests and healers to the “powerful cosmic forces”, associated with Mayan spirituality, forces that they will soon learn to understand and interpret. Not only is the healer exposed to their calling and destiny through dreams but they are exposed to the calling of others and learn rituals, receive wisdom and is trained through dreams.
Bring Awareness to Your Dreams. Bring Awareness to Your Life.
An excerpt from the Hopi Way (Values) “A Hopi…is one who understands that to realize a dream, one must not only pray for his or her desires, but must make a sincere commitment and work diligently to pursue the dream or goal until it is achieved;
A Hopi….is one who understands that the creator has provided all the necessary resources needed by all living beings to co-exist here, including the means by which the human race can achieve a happy, healthy and self-sustaining life;
A Hopi….is one who understands that the greatest feeling of accomplishment and fulfillment is one’s participation in social and community functions or activities and knowing that your contributions have resulted in benefits to the community and people.”
Simply put one must participate in life (the Dream) to assist in maintaining harmony with this world system.
Emotions. How to respond to them and transform your life. Inner Peace.
Emotional responses are an indicator to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being how you are feeling about the present moment. In addition, your emotions help you understand what conditions build, sustain and/or deplete your well being.
When, you feel an emotion rising from within, each one is filled with a positive charge of energy (nourishes your well being), negative charge of energy (depletes your well being) or a neutral (there is no charge). Your feelings indicate what nourishes your well being, where you need to take action, where you need to examine self (which follows with the need to heal/transform), where you need to come back into harmony, where you are holding back, and/or out of balance. Extreme emotional responses are a push from the inner being to come into harmony…these emotions will be expressed through excessive anger, laughter, crying, anxiety, sadness, grief, worry, doubt, righteousness and over compensation with the mask of ‘Pretending to BE HAPPY’.

Ways to Maintain Harmony within YOU…Surrender HERE
Surrender HERE. Cause and Effect
Then, welcome remembering your natural state of being…harmony and bliss. At this juncture you will naturally come from a place of service from moment to moment. When you are in harmony you are not making any effort, you will be at ease. You do not have to consciously by “mindful” because it will ‘BE’ your natural state of being. Furthermore, you will be objectively aware of how our thoughts, words and actions will potentially intersect each moment and what the true nature of cause and effect. When in this state of being, it is no longer just about you.
I share this because I had a beautiful experience yesterday teaching yoga to a group of individuals transforming their relationship to eating and self. One of the students shared her discomfort with her body and how difficult it was to participate or even watch me teach her. We talked through what this meant for her, she shared how uncomfortable she was in her body. Which is common side effect of an eating disorder. Rather than just pacifying her with a pep talk and ask her to try the class as I had planned, I asked her to share the postures that she is comfortable with. After some contemplation, she came up with child’s pose, prone posture and corpse. A (3) posture class. We went deep moving from child’s pose to prone and then they rolled over and they received sound in corpse. By moving through this class slowly the magic of a posture and the breath opened the students up to physical, emotional, spiritual and mental releases. This student cried for the first time and was able to experience yoga. As I share with all my yoga students, the asana (postures) are only one limb of yoga and they are what prepares the mind, body, heart and soul for meditation. In addition, I share the entire purpose of yoga is to welcome self into meditation while in corpse pose. When you master corpse you have mastered yoga. While, it is incredible to see what the human body will do and how supple the body can ‘BE’…no amount of “doing” will bring you to meditative repose. Furthermore, yoga was never intended to be an activity to show off your body…you will sense that yoga is starting to crack you open when the ‘I’ retires with the your senses and your inner ethics rise ‘UP’. The grasping starts to fall away and the mind with the heart are clear and open. Humility…is what ultimately leads you to this union (yoga) with self. READ MORE (CLICK HERE)
