Immune Function Stimulation

 How great is this!!

Love Thy Armpit (from freshmint@yogamint.com)

 
Make Your Immune System Smile – A Yogamint Classic
 

The armpit is more that just an aroma factory. There’s vital stuff tucked up there. Beneath the skin is the meeting place of the glandular system and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

So when you’re in the shower, lather up and scrub, rubbing deeply in the armpit area; a thorough massage awakens these bodily systems, increasing awareness, energy, immune response, and circulation. While you’re at it, hum a tune, infusing your touch with a little love. Your body will thank you. For added benefit take a cold shower. It multiplies the effects exponentially

It’s been a long time coming

 

Her name means Precious Star

 

This is my beautiful grand-daughter, Tehya Star.  She was welcomed to Mother Earth December 2, 2009

Being a Nanny is such a blessing, a wonderful gift, and I am so grateful to experience this part of my journey. My journey is absolutely amazing.  I must say that a good part of my life has been like a dream.  I awoke from the dream some twenty-five odd years ago into a haze.  As I moved deeper into the haze, the haze began to dissolve, and vanish! 

What took me deep into my haze was having my son.   I was a single mum for some of the time of my son’s early years and experienced ‘unknown fear’ a lot of the time. I raised my son the best way that I knew how. 

As I was deep in my dream of life, something very extraordinary happened to me one day, I  had a realisation.  I realised that I was becoming my mother.  (Blessings to my mother whom I love and am very grateful for all the lessons).  One single moment is all it took,  I saw myself and didn’t like what I witnessed, there was no blame, I simply saw myself.  I made a conscious decision at that moment.  I had to change.  I needed to awaken.

All sorts of books began coming my way.  It’s just great how the Universe works, I love it!  I read lots of books, began meditation and attended interesting courses.  I  did a diploma in remedial massage, I learned a lot about the body and enjoyed all this wonderful new knowledge.  Two key pivotal points came from that course,  I became a vegetarian and I was re introduced to yoga.  I had only ever done one yoga class in my life, and that was long forgotten.

Knowledge continues to enter my cup.  Knowledge is what began to dissolve the haze.  As my yoga practice deepened and I began to live the knowledge, the haze vanished.

Now with Tehya in my life, I cannot help but constantly review my past in the present moment.  I am so grateful to witness my son be a ‘dad’ and so blessed to have a beautiful daughter in-law.

My lessons continue without a doubt,  knowing it is all part of this journey makes it easier to bless.  I have a yoga student who says that she is looking forward to getting older, as she relates age to wisdom.  I can now relate to that as I approach my 6th decade.

I love my life, I truly do.  I love what I do.  I love to guide the yoga students who want to be guided.  I love to observe myself in others, and I can honestly say that I am truly surrounded by people I love. Thank you Universe.

Namaste 2010

Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa

Namaste 2010 to all Yogis and Yoginis.    

May you all be happy, may you all be well.    

We have now entered the new decade, and I hope for all and myself, that it will be the best decade yet.      

December 12 (last year), we chanted the 4 hour Miracle Mantra meditation.  It was great and enjoyed by all.     

December 21 was celebrated with a Kundalini yoga set and meditation recommended by 3HO for Solstice, balancing pelvic area (2nd chakra) and a beautiful chant for prosperity and emotional balance.  All who participated loved the night   

So we farwelled 2009 beautifully through our yoga practice.  I chanted my way into 2010 with the Healing Mantra of Ra Maa Daa Saa Saa Say So Hung, and I loved it.  So how did you enter 2010?  Hopefully with awareness and joy.   

For those of you who don’t know, I’m now a grand mother, wow! such a blessing.  My beautiful grand daughter, Tehya Star (means precious star) was born December 2.  Words cannot express the love she has brought into my life.  She is a true blessing. No doubt, she will be doing ‘down dog’ very soon, and chanting all sorts of mantras in no time at all 🙂   

Start up is February 1 at St Josephs.  Check the web page for details.
